This review is from: Tripp Lite SRW6U 6U SmartRack Wall Mount Rack Enclosure Cabinet
Pros: Well constructed.
Cons: - It's a front-post-only enclosure (no 4-post option), which wouldn't be bad, EXCEPT:
- Tripp Lite PDUs do not mount to the front rails without power cords getting totally blocked by the door. No worries; I can just go on Tripp Lite's website and get a second set of rails to mount it at the back, right? Wrong:
- Tripp Lite customer service doesn't sell replacement rails for these enclosures, period. If a part of this unit breaks, I'll have to replace the entire unit. Supply chain fail.
So I have the option of:
- Mounting the front rails back 3-4" into the cage, which is super awkward and limits the available space for the other equipment on the rack, or
- Buying aftermarket 6U vertical rails that may or may not be compatible with this product, or
- Hocking this enclosure and buying a product from a manufacturer that actually cares about customer service.
Other Thoughts: I would NOT recommend this product for personal use; definitely not for business use.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill - Pellucid HD Series High Speed HDMI Cable - 6 Feet
Pros: - Inexpensive
- Good construction/quality look and feel
- Works well, shielding seems to be doing its job
- Supports my 1080p Samsung
Cons: I tried to find a con so that I could post it here like "ha! you get what you pay for!" but it's not the case. It's just the rare instance of a good, sanely priced product.
Other Thoughts: Don't overthink this... but pay attention to the specs. This cable is only rated up to 1440p so I can't vouch for this working on your shiny new 4k.
Also, if you're buying new cables to try to get rid of noise on your screen, you should also consider putting your electronics on a voltage regulator.
Pros: The good stuff:
- It comes apart easily with two fingers but feels snug and sturdy once it snaps back together.
- There are screw holes that are actually in the right place for you to mount the drive to the frame (not necessary but adds sturdiness). No extra rigging required.
- The controller is quick. I'm using a Fujitsu 5400rpm 3.0G/s SATA 320gb, NTFS formatted... it copies big files and big batches of mixed file sizes very quickly.
- Easy install. XP picks it up faster than most thumb drives I've had.
- Runs cool and quiet with the Fujitsu drive
- It's cheap
- Not sure you can find a better one for cheaper
Cons: - On/off switch is not necessary and just one extra thing that I'm liable to break. I'm thinking about flicking it to "on" and then breaking it off.
Other Thoughts: - Some people have complained about smudges. I haven't noticed any smudges.
- Some people have complained about the magnets on the case/sleeve. Yeah, they're magnets. They're no stronger than fridge magnets and probably 1/1000th the strength of magnets that are _in_ disk drives.
Bottom line, the smudges and magnets will not get you.
