Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's a nice color
It worked well while it worked
It didn't take everything else with it when it died this morning.

Cons: It went out with a bang -literally. It sounded like a firecracker.

It should have lasted closer to 19 years than 19 months.

Other Thoughts: This is the second Antec power supply that has died prematurely. Both were bought from Newegg, if that's significant.

I don't beat up my computers. I'm not a gamer, I'm a retired engineer and write software pro-bono.

Power supplies are transformers with rectification. Both transformers and rectifiers have been around since the 1800s. The technology pre-dates the everyday use of electricity --it is s-t-a-b-l-e.

Only cheap components and poor quality control can explain premature failures in stable technology.

I would much rather pay 10% more for high-quality components than "save" the 10% through cheesy components and poor or no QA. As Edwards Deming proved, savings from corner-cutting are no savings at all, and it costs only a few percent more to deliver very high quality. Newegg should demand that its suppliers deliver that high quality.

Rosewill RC-211 Silicon Image 2 port SATA II PCI Express Host Controller Card RAID 0/1/0+1/5 JBOD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs RAID only, cannot be used as non-RAID 03/23/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RC-211 Silicon Image 2 port SATA II PCI Express Host Controller Card RAID 0/1/0+1/5 JBOD

Pros: - It's a Rosewill product
- It's cheap

Cons: - It cannot be used as a simple SATA 2-port controller, which is unusual. They're defining "JBOD" to mean "spanned" here: concatenating 2 disks into a single logical volume.

Other Thoughts: I feel that Rosewill and Newegg let me down, since "JBOD" historically has not meant "span" and is not a type of RAID.

Rosewill RTCG-CF280X High Yield Black Toner Replaces HP 80X CF280X 80A CF280A
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Not the usual Rosewill quality? 11/09/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RTCG-CF280X High Yield Black Toner Replaces HP 80X CF280X 80A CF280A

Pros: It appears to work okay, but I've only printed perhaps 50 pages so far (I've owned it awhile, but was intent on draining the original cart before installing this one, which I finally did this morning)

Cons: - It doesn't fit into the printer easily. Perhaps I'm going at it from the wrong angle, but the original cart went in and out as smooth as butter. This one doesn't.

- If it's trying to trick the printer into thinking it's an HP cart, it's not succeeding. The printer complains bitterly that it's a used, non-HP cart and refuses to provide status information.

- It squeaks a bit, which in my experience indicates that its life will be short and its performance will gradually worsen.

- The quality of this cart seems poor by comparison to the quality of the one (also Rosewill) I bought for my elderly-but-still-excellent LJ1300.

Other Thoughts: I wish more people had reported on this cart so I could have an idea whether I just got a bad unit. The bad fit and the squeak are not reassuring.
