Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Sim Free Android Smartphone - Black
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Sim Free Android Smartphone - Black
Price: 359.08

3.0 out of 5 stars awfully scratchy back spoils the xperience, 13 Aug 2014
This is my second Xperia phone, with the former being Xperia P.

This is an absolute breeze to interact with. Good performance in reasonable size combined with a quite capable camera.
Sony promotes this model as a premium handset with a built quality to match. But the truth is different.
The back of the device is made of a plastic that can be characterized as scratch magnet. It's so easy to get scratched that even with an aftermarket cover on is going to get scared.
Finally to add insult to injury Sony promoted the phone back (during launch) as scratchfree glass while this holds true only for the Japanese version http://www.xperiablog.net/2014/04/27/xperia-z1-compact-owners-replacing-back-covers-with-glass-to-stop-flash-bleed/

5.0 out of 5 stars Solution that works, great value., 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a product that can save the day when you are out of HDD Slots.

Pros
- Easy installation into the Case
- Good Paint-job
- Decent Pricing.
- Complete set of accessories. Comes with fan and mounting screws in the package.
- Good HDD Cooling (ambient@26 HDDs@30 after copying ~4GB)
- Allows for a bit of extra airflow in the case, while helping keeping a positive pressure as well.

Cons
- The rubber grommets inside the cage are often falling inside it during HDD installation.
- Relatively difficult HDD installation mechanism, It should be tool-less, the is no need for screwing HDDs nowadays.
- No SSD support, I had to use velcro in order to place one at the bottom of the cage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plug and play, 13 July 2013

Was a breeze to install and set at 1600Mhz without altering the voltage (leaving it at 1.5v) since I am using a z77 platform (GA-Z77N-WIFI).

2.0 out of 5 stars Good performance great value for money, awfully loud, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was trying to build something that doesn't sound like a chopper taking off during game sessions. I got this card because of the advertised Vapor-X system and the proven power and excellent value for money that you get from an 7950.
But and this was a deal-breaking but for me, this thing is loud, so loud that I can't stand it anymore and i am considering returning it for something like an 770. it's a pity because I am happy from the card's performance and when is working at idle it is dead silent.

P.S: When i received this card from Amazon the stickers that sealed the box (the ones with the Sapphire logo on them) were cut, but I didn't returned the product since the card was working as it should and all were in the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent PSU, Corsair did it again, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivers plenty of power, it was a tight fit on my Bitfinix prodigy. And its dead silent, when you choose the front line of corsair's PSUs you know that you can't go wrong, Highly recommended.

P.S:Excellent order fullfilment by Amazon was the cherry on top of the cake.

4.0 out of 5 stars doing the job for Circle cuts, for straight lines Don't use a Dremmel, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one for modding my PC Case. I needed a 200mm diameter Circle cut. This accessory did the job perfectly, highly recommended for that particular task. I think the results are more consistent than what you will get using a jigsaw especially if you are not keen with power-tools. I did't gave it a 5star because of the poor numbering at the arm.

Corsair CH-9000001-EU Vengeance M60 Performance FPS Gaming Mouse
Corsair CH-9000001-EU Vengeance M60 Performance FPS Gaming Mouse

4.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of hardware software not on par, 4 Jan 2013
This is an above medium quality product for sure. The material used -solid aluminium frame and quality plastic- are giving a flair of premium to the M60. The mouse sides have a rough texture while the top is smooth and soft. The weighting system might not be fancy but it does an adequate job if you want to fiddle with balance and weight. The Teflon legs are great and the mouse glides exceptionally both on cloth and hard surfaces. As a minor complaint I would like to see extra Teflon stickers in the packaging. Mouse design is ideal for Claw, good for fingertip (slightly difficult on reaching the sniper and forward buttons) and average on palm grips.

The only think that can set you back from buying this product is the accompanied (or not since you have to download it) software. First of all Corsair promotes the use of firmware updater, since it includes the tool with the software download. Then it prompts you to update the firmware in order for the software suite to work (first time ever that I have seen something like that). But its unacceptable to not support USB 3.0 ports FOR THE FIRMWARE UPDATE procedure. If you try to do that, as I did (No USB2.0 on mobo), you are going to have major issues, that if you are not an experienced user are going to escalate to RMA. Overall the mouse configuration software is cumbersome and needs some rethinking. It is like its trying to scare you away, specifically if you are going to use macros.

To sum up, its a great piece of well designed and implemented hardware. Highly recommended but if you are not an experienced user avoid to update firmware alone, nevertheless Corsair got you covered fellow gamer.

Corsair AX850 Professional Series 850W AX ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Gold PSU
Corsair AX850 Professional Series 850W AX ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Gold PSU

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Corsair Quality Product, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent PSU, Silent and powerful, a bit pricey but the 7 years of warranty makes up for that. Highly recommended if you want to SLI or building a monster RIG. If you don't need that much power go for the HX version and save some money.
