This review is from: iStarUSA TC-400R8A2 20+4Pin 2 x 400W Redundant Server Power Supply
Pros: Quality Construction. Meets Specifications. Failover works as labled.
Cons: Still a single point of failure. If Housing Fails even though the modules are good you'll have downtime. That defeats the purpose of Hot Swap. Some Server boards have multiple 24 pin connectors for true redundancy. Also, a Little bit pricey for the wattage. I would much rather pay the same price for a 750 Watt Redundant Hot swap, but maybe im dreaming.
Other Thoughts: I've been using these in server builds since june of 05 or so. Probably got 7 of the power supplies and 20 or so of the modules. Anyhow I usually buy an extra module so that if one of them fails i don't have to order the replacement. Kind of a hot spare if you will. However i've never had to use a spare module because i have never expierienced a failure. Pretty good track record so far.
