Be Quiet Pure Power L8-CM 430W PSU
Be Quiet Pure Power L8-CM 430W PSU
Price: £51.15

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Quiet Indeed!, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this PSU to replace an Antec which had finally burnt out on a HTPC. My primary requirements were low power consumption and low noise.

Connecting up to the motherboard was a breeze, there are multiple cable options and multiple power slots in which to use them. The fun came when I crossed my fingers and hit the on switch - I had to double check everything to make sure it really was on it was that quiet!

I really can not recommend this enough for its noise levels, it has to be heard to be believed.

I bought this for long term Dr Who fan who has down syndrome and he was absolutely made up, Easy to be held and soft. Button a little difficult to activate for uneasy fingers

Nice bracelet. Dont know if I would have paid £40 plus for it. Was dissappointed that one of the pearls had come off but was for a gift that was needed asap, so hopefully they wont notice one missing :0(

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful - Picture does it no justice, 6 Oct. 2008
Bought at a reduced price this watch was an absolute bargain. Was not sure how it would look in the flesh but it is better than I thought! I have bought it as a Christmas present and think it would be a great accessory for the Christmas period.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 24 May 2008
Purchased last week and had severe difficulty in getting it past the loading stage (seemed like the DSL hung). Turns out the issue was a bad firmware. Downloaded the new version (1.8) and installed with no problems.

Still too soon to give huge review, but have been able to load and use programs with relative ease, so no problems on that score.

Recommending this to sis-in-law, so a thumbs up here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unhappy, 19 Feb. 2008
I thought I'd found a cracking unit, but had it back in the box and a return requested within half an hour.

Where to start ?

1. The Amazon title states 800x480, the description body on more than one occasion states 800x600 - the box stated 800x480

2. The mini-usb connects to the pc, but the memory card cannot be accessed (requires formatting) or formatted - catch 22 or what. I resorted to removing the card and adding the files manually.

3. Images resized to fit the screen still displayed black bars, suggesting the resolution is something other than on the box.

4. There is no shuffle function, meaning all images are displayed in a set order (imagine how long to get to your newer images !)

5. The slideshow has three options : Fast, Medium & Slow - Slow is still too quick for the image to be displayed for a decent time.

All in all I am very disappointed - is it too much to ask for a shuffle function with the images displayed for more than a few seconds at a time.

On the positive side, the frame surround looked nice (although the support was horrible) and you do get a nice choice of inner surrounds. Rubbish as a digital frame though :-(
