Rosewill Stallion Series RD400-2-SB - 400-Watt ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Go with a better brand 03/10/2015

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD400-2-SB - 400-Watt ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Shuts off abruptly, not reliable

Other Thoughts: I selected this Rosewill Stallion as a replacement for another Rosewill power supply that developed a loud fan. Fast forward two years later, and this has begun to shut down all of a sudden. I run it in a server that must stay up 24/7, and in that, this one has failed. It is getting adequate cooling, and it is not being drained, yet it will stay up for only up for only about 3-5 days at a time without shutting down. It is powering a basic motherboard with no additional video card or other high drain additions. This has been my last purchase of a Rosewill power supply. Going forward, I will stick with name brands.

Pros: Dual band, great range and speed, can be upgraded to better firmware with improved features, gigabit ethernet, USB 3.0 high speed port

Cons: Not easy to stack with other devices, must remember to eject the hard drive properly if disconnecting

Other Thoughts: I purchased this router because our previous router was a Western Digital N750. It had problems with streaming video, and we had to power cycle it almost daily. So far, this AC1450 router is far and away, a better one. Our streaming video problems which I thought were caused by Comcast, have practically disappeared. You can hook up 2 USB devices to network (printer, storage). We get great speed and coverage throughout the house, although it's a small two floor house. This is a refurbished router, but aside from the outside packaging and the blanked-out serial number, I can't tell. You can upgrade the firmware so that this router is exactly like an AC1750 (R6300v2). Just search for the procedures on how to do it.

Now for the few negatives:
I had to reset the router back to factory settings after only about 3 weeks of use. Some wireless devices couldn't get an IP address through the router's DHCP server. I suppose that could be due to the different firmware. Also, I forgot to log into the router to properly eject a brand new hard drive, and lost some important files. I guess this isn't really a negative for the router, because you should always properly eject a storage device before removing it. This is just a pointer, more or less. The only way you can control read/write privileges to the hard drive is to give a user the admin password to the router. No thanks! And lastly, because of the design, if you're stacking this router on top of a modem it will obviously have to be on top.

After almost a month, this router has been a joy to own. It has resolved our previous problems!

Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single 12V Rail, SLI & Crossfire Ready, Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: More than adequate power, not lacking in connection types

Cons: A little noisier than my last supply; too many unused cables that have to be tied up

Other Thoughts: I chose this for the price. So far, it hasn't let me down. My system is far overpowered now, but that's OK. It gives me room for future expansion. Install was easy, and it includes enough connections; actually too many.
