Most Favorable Review

Good replacement CPU Fan

MASSCOOL 8W553B1M3 90mm Ball CPU Cooler
MASSCOOL 8W553B1M3 90mm Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Does what it's supose to do. As good as the stock CPU fan.

Cons: The installation of the fan was made harder because you have to put the backplate in the back of the motherboard to secure the fan on to the motherboard.

Overall Review: Good deal for 10 dollars. Not any better than my stock CPU fan.

Successful upgrade from 6 year old 500GB SATA SSD and 1TB HDD

XPG GAMMIX Gaming S70: 2TB Internal SSD PCIe Gen4x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive
XPG GAMMIX Gaming S70: 2TB Internal SSD PCIe Gen4x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive

Pros: Price and performance.

Cons: None so far. Some maybe upset (none as far as I know) that there is no software bundled for cloning. That's actually not necessary as there are a number of free to use software that can do that. I will not recommend one over another, but MY choice for this job was AOMEI Backupper.

Overall Review: With space running low on my 500GB SDD and its life cut in half over past 6 years, I thought to myself it was time to upgrade. I had recently upgraded CPU/MOBO/RAM which I planned to complete with a modern SSD such as this one. When on sale, this SSD was by far the best deal for a high end Gen4x4 NVME SSD.

Longest surviving power supply

Pros: The Rosewill RX850 is one of the best power supplies I have ever used. I have made countless of upgrades and complete overhauls to my PC, but this power supply remained running. Yes, it lasted me for over 6 years of daily use before I finally replaced it.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: I don't regret purchasing this product way back in 2010. If I had to do it all over again, I would. For those who are wondering. Yes, it finally broke. However, I never expected to use this for OVER 6 YEARS.

Great Light Bulb

Rosewill A19N7WWWE26 55 W Equivalent 7 Watt A19 E26 Base Warm White LED Light Bulb

Pros: Bright enough for me.

Cons: As with the last LED bulb, this one also produces quite some heat. Not a big deal really.

Overall Review: It's a light bulb. Not much to say about a light bulb other than how bright, energy efficient, and hot it is. The color is good too of course.

Pros: After using this for over a year I can say that this is one of the best PSUs I have ever bought for the price.

Cons: I've used this to power 2 9800GTX and now 1 GTX570 with 0 problems.

Overall Review: Price didn't change much from when I bought it lol.

Great

Overall Review: 'Nuff said
