I live "off-grid", solar, so I need to plug electronic devices into outlets I can turn "off" when not in use so that they don't seep power. I ordered one of these, was so happy with its sturdiness, dark color and low footprint, that I ordered two more. Definitely recommend!

I am very plesed with my product. It is multipurpose. It's convenient when you can use it either with PC (USB port), in the vehicle's cigarette lighter and has 2 ports and can be used in an electrical out let as well. More importantly it gives you two different size usb ports for a camera and phone. I am very satisfied!

This is exactly what i wanted for my mac. When I bought it, I decided to spare no expense to protect it. so far the keyboard is clean and free of any dust or residue i have on my hands while using it. It seriously fits my keyboard perfectly, and when I went into the Apple store even the "Genius" I was working with asked me where I got it. They're about $15-$20 on amazon, so this is a great price for the exact same thing. I love it. I ordered it on Saturday and received it Tuesday. It was great.

This was pretty amazing.. I'm not so sure about the anti glare feature yet, but it definitely does the job. But I would would recommend that you should spray/sponge a little bit of water on the iPad itself first before you put the screen protector on it. Then put the screen protector on it, and then use the soft card to decrease the amount of bubbles. If you do it that way it looks as if it was done by a pro.

this key cover is pretty neat. it is a little weird to type with it. I only put it on yesterday. I am sure I will get used to it. It does help quite the clacking of the keys. the F5 &F6 keys are missing the icons but I guess that doesn't really matter. I happened to get this product for free so i can't complain. But I would recommend it. It beats having to pick out the dog hairs everyday.

Used APC surge arrest products for years. Needed a new one so there was no comparison. Easy to install and fits in a small area nicely

This product is a nice, tidy addition to my work space/desk area. No wrestling with its placement, which is a feature I was hoping for. Takes up less space and fits just right. Easy to plug into, no problems encountered with its use.

chose the Isobar brand on the advice of the dealers that sold me my robotics and tablet computers. perfect set up for plugging in multiple computers and computer driven robotics from the same source - eliminated 'noise' that was apparent with an ordinary surge protection device. The extra long cord (15') was ideal for my situation . Havent seen a lower price on this unit than I got here from overstock.com. most internet retailers did not have the model with the extra long cord available. very satisfied with this product.

I purchased this upon several recommendations on the energy conservation topic. It is being used on the GIANT television, stereo components and X-box cluster in the basement...I was concerned that the kids were not shutting everything off when they were finished. I cannot speak to the energy savings yet...will update on this.

This is a nice screen protector; I bought 2 of them. I destroyed the first one trying to figure out which end to start with and had to use the other one. Once I applied it to the screen, it looks great. Matte finish, no glare, no finger marks (or maybe it's just less noticeable) and it looks professional. It was larger than I imagined. It is iPad size and not just screen size. I would buy this again.

I usually use APC. Tripplite has been around forever. I remember working with them in the 80's. This is a great UPS. No regrets what so ever buying this unit. It works well. It has lots of nema plugs on the back and holds a charge for a good amount of time under load.

The keyboard cover looks exactly like the picture online. It fits my keyboard perfectly, stays on without slipping, and is soft and easy to use. Does not effect my typing at all. I would buy this product again.

It is a power cord. It is black. It has one male and one female connector. Can this excitement never end? How can one review such a wonderful and useful product? It is of a sufficient length. It conducts electricity. Look at the excitement of those electrons. (Okay, most people can't actually see those electrons but if you can please email me, okay?)

This product appears to be very well made. I needed something for appliances rather than PC or other, sensitive types of electronics. This surge protector does not automatically turn off as some do when being used with equipment other than appliances. I am using this with my refrigerator and a counter-top microwave-convection oven I had to purchase since Xcel Energy has so many numerous types of power outages during the week. My current microwave-convection over is all but dead, even having used a single unit surge protector. One reason I am writing the review a bit prematurely is because of the "packaging" this product came in. It was sent out of Salt Lake City in a thin cardboard paper that was sealed around the box the surge protector came in. Needless to say, the "carton" was a bit mutilated and the box for the surge protector was a bit smashed. Overstock.com is usually very good about how its products are wrapped and this was a surprise as well as a disappointment. I am checking out the surge protector to ensure it was not damaged from the lack of proper packaging and the treatment received from the carrier. I don't want to take any chances with my new convection-microwave oven. They are not cheap. I believe the product is made in America and I find it interesting that nowhere does it say where it is made.

I got this for my teenage brother's dorm room. He hasn't moved in yet, so we haven't used it, but I can tell you it looks great and has a nice LONG cord. We plan to plug it in behind his bed, then snake it around to his desk so he will have lots and lots of plugs available where he needs them.

Wasn't hard to install other than you have to take your mother board out to put the braket under the board. I guess the HX is too large to use without the extra support form a bracket under the mother board. seems well made and should hold up. Put it on a Intel 775 q9650 that i am overclocking to 3.6 and this heat exchanger keeps the temperature below 156F with a room temperature of 72F, thin air at high altitude, and the processor is at full load steady state. This is a little bit warmer than the stock intel fan and heatexchanger at the normal 3.0. I was wondering about the noise because I saw a test on the net that these HX could be pretty loud at full load, but I can't hear mine inside the case on the floor under my desk. The high noise from the test may be the dual fan unit but you couldnt tell from the test results.

Battery had enough power were I could use it right away, was easy to install, software is easy to use and when the power failed the PC shut down automatically (I turned the circuit breaker off to see how will it would work).

This battery packup is just what I needed for those brief power outages that happen occasionally. I did not buy for lengthy use during power outages, but only to protect my investment. It came at a good price too..
Computer technology changes quickly, and a great laptop computer may seem out of date after only a few years. Of course, you may be generally happy with your laptop and just want some performance or memory upgrades, or you might be buying a new laptop for yourself and want to hand off your computer to someone else who might find it useful. While laptop parts aren't as easily interchangeable as desktop computer parts, you can still do a few upgrades that will extend the life of your laptop. Check your laptop computer's user manual and look for these upgrade possibilities.
Buying a brand-new computer is exciting but not always practical. Fortunately, you can upgrade the computer hardware on your existing desktop computer or laptop to boost performance and save money. Here are five components that can give your computer more speed, storage space and new capabilities.

When you browse the large selection of laptops here on Overstock.com, you may see this icon that labels them as "refurbished." A refurbished laptop is either a computer that has been returned to the retailer or manufacturer for a refund by a customer or a computer that has just come off a lease. The computer may have had a slight defect or simply not met a customer's expectations. Before a laptop can be resold, any defective components are repaired or replaced and the computer is then carefully examined to ensure it works properly. Any computer that goes through this process must be identified as refurbished or reconditioned. Refurbished laptops can be a bargain compared to some new models, but it's important to make a few comparisons first to make sure you're getting a good deal.

It's important to know a few things about computer cases and how they affect how you build your computer. Here are a few tips to help you choose a computer case that will work for you.
Upgrading components on your desktop computer, and doing it yourself, can be very rewarding. If you are upgrading components that use up a lot of power, like a video card, you may need to install a new power supply to handle the load. Most computer power supplies will list its maximum wattage. You may need to calculate your computer's power usage by adding up the maximum power usage of all your components. That number will be your guide when searching for the right computer power supply. Certain computer cases will only accept compatible power supplies. You can determine which type of case you have by examining the motherboard for an information tag. When you're ready to install your computer power supply, use these simple steps to help you along.

Once you know what these technical details mean for your laptop performance, it's easier to find a quality laptop or notebook computer that fits your computing habits. Here are some details about the main laptop components you'll encounter.
High-performance computer components, like video cards and CPUs, can really heat up during operation. If the heat gets too high, those components can be damaged or have their life spans shortened, and while your computer likely has one or more fans installed, it may not be enough to keep your system's temperature down. A computer cooling system can help draw heat away from your sensitive hardware, using fans and heatsinks to circulate air or pumps and cooling blocks to circulate coolant.
Your computer's hard drive is one of the most basic and vital components. It holds all of your data and entirely determines how many files you can store. This hard drive glossary will help expand your knowledge of hard drive features and options for your computer.
Over time, your old computer slows down and becomes outdated. New applications demand more memory, speed and capabilities.

Whether you're starting from scratch or just making an upgrade, this computer hardware buying guide will help you know which computer hardware components will work together to make your computer fast and powerful.
Your computer's motherboard is the heart of your system, and if you're building a custom computer or upgrading any part of it, you'll need to know how the motherboard works. Once you understand the basic motherboard features, you'll be more prepared to shop for one also to find computer components that are compatible with it.
When you get a new computer or upgrade components on an old computer, you may be looking at upgrading a lot of your software, too. Software continues to improve, providing computer users with diverse abilities for nearly any task. Below are some answers to frequently asked questions about software applications and how they relate to you as a user.
Computers that overheat can crash frequently, causing a loss of data and important files, but there are case accessories to help prevent this. Typically, a CPU cooling fan will be mounted to your computer case, bringing air into the case to cool computer components.
