This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS480E12 480W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: I want to say this first, you get what you pay for. Don't expect this to power your $600+ gaming rig. With that said, on with the review!
This PSU was bought as a cheap, but hefty replacment for a Dell Inspiron 531 Desktop. That desktop is mostly stock, with the changes being an Athlon 64 x2 6000+ (Windsor) and a GeForce GT610. I estimate this system to use about 150-200W, so this 430W is overkill. I wanted this to be overkill because a cheap PSU does not usually have a high amp rail, like higher quality PSUs will have.
So far, the PSU has been running without a hitch for about 8 months now, and the fan in it still works fine. It is a little loud, but much quieter than those. If you are familiar with the sound of a 120mm fan running at ~1200 RPM, that's the decibel level. It's tolerable considering I've had a couple other cheapies that have an 80mm fan run at full throttle.
Cons: None so far. As I said before, don't expect to power a gaming right that has a graphics card with a PCI-E power connector, you might end up blowing a capacitor in the PSU.
Other Thoughts: It's a great replacement PSU for a manufactured computer. If you are building a computer that is using lower power configurations, you would be fine as well. Recommendations would be an A-Series AMD build, AM1 Athlon build, embedded CPU builds, or an Intel/AMD build with NO dedicated graphics cards (especially one's that require PCI-E power).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This was bought for a customer who wanted to be able to connect to his neighbor's (he has consent. lol) WiFi and game on it as well. This person had a tight budget so I decided to try this adapter out. So far, my customer and I have been very pleased with the adapter. The desktop is about 30-40 feet away from the router inside the neighbor's house, and router/modem is from an ISP (so nothing fancy).
The customer is able to maintain 3/5 bars which I was, at first, a little worried. We ran some speed tests and were able to maintain 50-60 ms for ping! We played some games and didn't have a problem at all when it came to lag.
It's been about 2 months at this point and it has maintained it's performance so far.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: As far as driver installation, I let Windows 7 install the necessary drivers and nothing else. We did not download any drivers from TP-Links website; just let Windows control it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The router GUI is nice and easy to understand. I have an ASUS 5 port switch connected to it as well and they have both worked flawlessly to power my WiFi network and my business. I have not had to reset the router yet since I set this up on March 18. Even after a few ISP maintenance outages. The wireless range on it is comparable to the range of a router/modem that you would receive from an ISP. It is in the center of my house, and I get about 50-60% on the ends of the house (1,500 sq. ft.). I can go outside to my garage and get 1/4 bars on my phone, which is enough to stream some music; that's about 40-50 ft. away.
As far as what is connected to the router; 2 desktops, a switch (which has 2 desktops connected, and another 1 or 2 depending on business). We also have a laptop that gets connected occasionally, and all 5 of us have a mobile device. All of this load and it hasn't had an issue yet. I had many router/modems from my previous ISP and I would have to reset them at least once a week.
Cons: I have not had any cons with this router yet.
Other Thoughts: If you want a good, dependable router for a good, affordable price; don't hesitate to buy this one. I have always had good luck with ASUS products.READ FULL REVIEW
