Enermax MaxRevo EMR1350EWT 1350W Power Supply Review

Cooler Master NA90 Universal Notebook PSU Review

Notebooks have an unnecessarily hard life.  People tote them just about everywhere, but most of them are no more rugged than a child’s plastic toy.  In spite of batteries (or perhaps because of), people tether their portable computers to their power adapters all of the time, which have a tendancy to get tugged, pulled and bent, eventually resulting in […]
