Tripp Lite's line of AC power cords offer PC users a solution to their power connectivity problems. This 6ft cable will replace the power cable on most computers and peripherals that have a removable power cord. Cable features an AC style plug (NEMA 5-15P) on one end and a computer style receptacle (IEC-320-C13) on the other end. RightAngle exit allows room for the power cable in tight situations, such as against a wall. Cable has both UL and CSA approvals. Tripp Lite warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for life.
simple and effective, very happy
This review is from: Tripp Lite Model P006-006-13RA 6 ft. 18AWG Power cord (NEMA 5-15P to IEC-320-C13 Right Angle)
Pros: - 90 degree angle at the psu connection allows your computer to be pushed closer against a wall since this AC power cable only sticks out about 1 inch when installed
Cons: - can restrict clearance for cables that hook into the top end of the motherboards I/O section, but its not so restricting that it cant be done.
Other Thoughts: The only way this wouldnt be a nice cheap upgrade is if your power supply AC connection was horizontal instead of vertical because it would direct the cable to the side instead of down. My old power supply was horizontal but my new one is vertical. By horizontal I mean the large middle prong on the power supplies AC connection is either on the top or bottom, and vertical is were the large middle prong is to the left or right. To have this cable directed down you need to have a power supply were the middle prong is to the right. The cable clearance that some people may have is minor because the cable does have enough flexibility down the cord.
