ZyXEL GS1100-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Own 2, work fine so far 04/26/2016

This review is from: ZyXEL GS1100-24 10/100/1000Mbps 24-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch

Pros: I own 2 of these switches for my home network. One is 1.5 years old and the other is less than 1 year old. Best price to performance ratio out there (when on sale). Large-file SSD to SSD copies over Cat6 will saturate gigabit (~120MB/sec).

Cons: If it dies outside the warranty period I will just spend more on the lifetime warranty on the Netgear switch.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why so many are dying outside 24 months. First thought is heat as these units are fanless. Mine are kept in a cool basement, open rack. Time will tell as I'm coming up on 24 months in October. I still think for $60 it's worth a shot for non-critical (home) networks. You're looking at almost twice that for the Netgear switch.

EVGA 220-PS-1000-V1 80 PLUS Platinum 1000 W 7 yr Warranty ECO Mode Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Super Silent continuous Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This PS model is built by Seasonic (the P2 is built by Superflower) so that should tell you everything you need to know. Cables are long enough for most ATX cases. ECO mode is well designed unlike Corsair's version. Playing 30 mins of SW Battelfront (beta) with Crossfire 290s and the fan still did not come on (tested, it works). You can flip the ECO mode on/off at anytime. Very silent even when the fan is on. Sleeved cables look good.

Cons: It doesn't make sandwiches.

Other Thoughts: Seasonic built plus EVGA warranty and support? What's not to love. Get it on sale/rebate. At full price it's still a fair deal.

Pros: Cheap for wattage, modular, Corsair has a good PSU reputation. No coil whine on mine. Appeared brand new, not a scratch on it, no dust.

Cons: Fan goes from 0 to 100 at moderate to high loads. Eventually spins down but is still loud. My test was with one 290, three hours of gaming, no headphones, case ~4 feet away.

Other Thoughts: I've never been sensitive to fan noise but I don't like how Corsair rigged this fan. It's off at low load but moderate to high loads it spins up way more than necessary. There is no switch to control the fan. Add one of those and this would be a great PS. As it stands, I haven't decided if it's going back yet.
