This review is from: Rosewill RV350-2 350W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
Pros: Cheap, quiet, it just works.
Cons: Only two SATA connectors - on the same cable only 5 or 6 inches apart. If your HDD and your optical drive are further apart, as in a Dell case or other non-standard case, you'll be splicing in longer wires. If you need Molex connectors, you're in good shape, 6 of them on two separate cables.
Other Thoughts: As with any Rosewill component, I expect this power supply to outlast the rest of the PC.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large capacity, inexpensive, quiet, good performance.
Cons: Relatively slow if you are worried about bleeding edge performance. In that case, you're buying the wrong drive. Won't come close to saturating a 6Gb/sec bus.
Other Thoughts: Great storage drive, and excellent replacement drive for a PC with dual-core or less. Used it to replace a failing Seagate 750GB drive in a friend's Dell PC with Core 2 Duo / 8GB RAM. When she got it back, she said it was faster than new. So much for those who claim it's a "slow" drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low cost, simple to use, worked perfectly first time.
Cons: None whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: I needed to use a Canon BJC-80 printer (parallel port only) with my Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop (no parallel port) running Linux Mint 12. Plugged the printer into power, a parallel cable in the female end of the adapter, and plugged the adapter into an open USB port.
The printer was instantly recognized, literally before I realized it, and I was printing a document less than one minute after I plugged it in, and most of that time was me trying to verify the printer was on the list of available printers and opening the PDF to print.
If you have trouble with this adapter, you aren't smart enough to own a computer anyways. Go back to paper and pencil.
