This review is from: Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5" SSD / HDD Plastic Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay
Pros: This is not a major part. All it does and is suppose to do, is
hold a 2.5" drive in place inside a computer...and it does it
just fine. Sure, it's plastic, but it works. There are plenty
os screws. For under $5.00, what do ya want ?
Cons: I don't have any. Yea it could be cheaper, but really..no big deal.
Other Thoughts: Ordered it, got here pretty close, mounted the drive, then
the drive and this mount into the unit and all is fine.
Pros: Lord, after buying this and not really paying attention,
I thought I had bought the thermal ADHESIVE compound !
I'm sure glad I checked it out closer.
Applied a bit to a client's old Dell 580 after a major cleanup
and now have all 4 AMD cores running at around 42/46C
That'll work !
Cons: Price is a little high and I did buy two, but compared to Silver 5,
this is the better way to go. These 2 tubes will last me a VERY
Other Thoughts: Been a customer of the Egg since 01/02 and it
never has really let me down. VERY few problems and
they were handled very quickly. Shipping is most times
pretty fast, but I only live about 50 miles from Newegg.
But that's SoCal miles..In other states, that would equal
out to around a 100 miles. You'd have to live in SoCal
to appreciate what I refer to...LOL
This review is from: Antec Basiq BP350 350W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Pros: I was leery of buying another Antec due to the short lifetime
I had on another PSU some years ago, and had always used
Corsair since. However I just wanted a simple test PSU to
check out repairs and the price was pretty good on this one.
I used it to test a motherboard on a Dell E 510 and it did light
up the leds, and helped me confirm a dead motherboard, so
iy has served it's purpose so far.
Cons: Cables are short for some cases, no doubt, but one can't really
expect an inexpensive PSU like this to have long cables that
are sheathed in cable covering. For just test things, this PSU
works ok. I HAVE used an Antec Earth Works PSU in a clients
unit and with good success after modifying in and the case
a bit and it has worked really well.
I wouldn't use Antec in any of my own units as I have learned
my lesson from that one years back, but for testing simple
things, I guess they'll do for some apps.
Other Thoughts: Shipping was ho-hum from Newegg. I don't see or expect the
same quality service I did in the early mid 2000's, that WAS
pretty fast, but most ALL quality customer service from most
ALL companies is seriously lacking. That's one of the reasons
I've cut way down on buying items from Newegg and other
