UBatteries Laptop Battery Apple MacBook Pro 13
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price

Cons: I purchased this battery for a 2009 13" MacBook Pro to replace the original battery. After swapping out the battery it worked well, as I noticed a big change in the battery life of the notebook. I could once again work for 4 hours or so on a charge (which is what that model should be able to do). I'm only 4 months into the battery now and I'm noticing the charge life is shortening over time. It now dies in about an hour. It gets to 60% and then dies.

One thing I did notice when swapping out the battery was that the new one weighed a little less than the original. Not sure if that's in indicator or not but, there you go.

The price was good but not nearly good enough to justify its dismal lifespan. Not worth the money. Look for a better battery.

Other Thoughts: I've generally had good luck with after-market batteries, but not this time...

ASUS RS100-E7/PI2 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very pleased. I'm using it with an i3-2120 and 2 x 2.5" HDs and it's been in service since April 2012. It measures in at 28W on my APC UPS, awesome. I'm running Server 2008 with no problems whatsoever. Will be getting 2 more for Svr 2012 in a few weeks. Fits great in a 24" deep rack nicely. There's space for 2 x 3.5" drives but if you get 2-gang brackets like the Kingwin HDM-225 you can put 4 x 2.5" drives in no problem.

Cons: Not really a con, but the blue power LED on the front can literally light up a room at night. Kinda like looking at the sun. I disconnected it since the green HD and Ethernet LEDs are almost always showing activity, hense power...

Other Thoughts: Maybe slightly quieter fans, or better control over thier speed. With a system consuming a total of 28W from the wall you hardly need much cooling. It's certainly not a problem though.

Athena Power Zippy P1H-6400P 400W Single 1U Server Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I used it to replace a failed supply in an Asus 1U server (RS120-E5/PA4). Asus doesn't make or supply replacement supplies which is a drage but this one was a capable and good substitute. Small unit for the power rating.

Cons: None really. Perhaps if it had a few more mounting holes and such it would be easier to retrofit into a bigger variety of servers, but its compact size allows it to fit into almost any server.

Other Thoughts: I knew going in that this supply would need custom fitting. Because of Asus' design I had to make a bracket to hold the supply in place comfortably and securely. No fault of the supply though. All in all, a good experience.
