T-Mobile Is Going to Un-carrier Your TV in 2018!

I love this guy and if this comes to fruition, I'll be the first to sign up.


“People love their TV, but they hate their TV providers. And worse, they have no real choice but to simply take it – the crappy customer service, clunky technology and outrageous bills loaded with fees! That’s where we come in. We’re gonna fix the pain points and bring real choice to consumers across the country,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “It only makes sense for the Un-carrier to do to TV what we’re doing to wireless: change it for good! Personally, I can’t wait to start fighting for consumers here!”

AeroCool Project 7 850W Platinum Power Supply Unit Review @ NikKTech

The Project 7 P7-850W is a fully-modular Power Supply Unit that features an 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification, single powerful 70A +12V rail (can deliver up to 840W), high-quality Japanese capacitors, flat and flexible modular cables, 140mm RGB LED fan (a compatible mainboard header or Aerocool's P7-Hub is required to make use of this feature) and a wide range of electrical protections including OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OTP (Over Temperature Protection) and OPP (Over Power Protection). 

Also according to Aerocool the P7-850W offers almost inaudible operation since the 140mm FDB (fluid dynamic bearing) fan starts spinning only after 60% load and doesn't hit over 500RPM until 80%. This is not the first time we've seen a PSU behave in such a way but it's not something very widely used at least not yet so it's a good thing Aerocool decided to incorporate it in their new PSU line. Last but not least Aerocool covers the P7-850W with a 7 year limited warranty which is a clear indication that they truly believe in the quality of their brand new unit.
