NORCO RISER-1U 1U Riser Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Performs as expected 06/24/2010

This review is from: NORCO RISER-1U 1U Riser Card

Pros: Does exactly what is expected of it - supports a PCI card parallel to the motherboard. No BIOS/POST problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Currently in use in a 2U Gentoo box, supporting a gigabit-Ethernet NIC. The computer acts as a router for a dozen other machines, so the NIC sees fairly heavy use, and I've had no problems with the card, riser, or motherboard after several months.

I would've liked to have seen a 2U/3-slot equivalent - using this riser effectively limits me to one PCI card in the machine.

During use, the router has been through a couple power outages, and the riser hasn't ever been a problem in powering back up or POSTing - electrical work and construction seems solid. I don't doubt the other reviewers had problems, but I haven't encountered any of them.

TRENDnet TEG-S160TX Unmanaged Gigabit Switch

5 out of 5 eggs Good, if noisy, switch 12/30/2009

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S160TX Unmanaged Gigabit Switch

Pros: This switch works exactly as advertised: gigabit speeds across 16 ports, auto-managed, per-port activity lights, 1U mountable (with included brackets).

Cons: The fan is loud, as other reviewers have mentioned.

Other Thoughts: As for the noisy fan: yes, it is _very_ audible. However, the switch casing will actually disassemble (probably voiding the warranty) to reveal that it's a standard 40x40x10mm fan mounted with two screws and powered by a two-pin connector attached to the board. Other (quieter) fans will mount in the same spot easily - just be sure to match the power supply level to it (clearly printed on the stock fan).

Rosewill RC-18
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought twenty for use in a large storage array. None have failed; all support SATAII transfer speeds. No problems with the clip or 90-degree connector as others have mentioned.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: None.
