4 out of 5 eggs Much better than the Model 2 B+ 04/09/2016

This review is from: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - 1.2GHz Quad Core Cortex-A53 64-Bit CPU, 1GB RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth

Pros: VERY fast for everyday online browsing. I mainly needed this thing for this purpose since I needed a public access computer, but didn't have to worry about infections. For all intensive purposes, it meets every demand (whilst running Raspbian). Granted, not everyone would use the Pi 3 for this purpose, but it's nice to know it can handle it. The faster CPU defiantly helps. They changed the SD card slot to be pull to remove. The Model 2 B+'s SD card slot was VERY flimsy so this was a refreshing fix.

Cons: The use I would have liked to use this as an emulator machine, but PiPlay won't work on it yet. This said, it's not why I took away an egg. I removed an egg because it gets too hot. Without a heat sink, the device would just shutoff on me while idling. I HIGHLY recommend a heat-sink if you buy this.

Other Thoughts: I will be buying another to turn it into a Point of Sale system. Tested my code on it and it runs flawlessly. I will report back if everything stays stable after some time.

Diablotek CPA-0170 Black SGCC Steel Diamond ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 400W Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -VERY good airflow for only PSU fan

-Easy access HDD mount

-Looks good

-The bracket to hide those ugly screws over the PCI add on area is a very nice touch. Very happy they included it.

Cons: -Feels flimsy... and is... like the plastic is stronger than the steel.

-Steel back plate strips when screwing in standoffs (Unless being held by pliers on the opposite side.

-Only one 3.5" HDD bay. the other two are for 2.5" any drive.

-No sound dampening at all.

Other Thoughts: Despite the cons, I am happy with the case. Especially since it only cost me $30. 400 watts was enough to power

VisionTek Juice Box VT-450CD 450W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Dedicated Graphics & CPU Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I own 3 of these already and none have gone bad (This is over the course of 4 years too)

They do the job as described. Plain and simple.

Cons: I just wish the cables provided weren't so thick. Not really a con against the product, but the wires to the GPU are just in the way with how thick they are.
