This review is from: RAIDMAX RX-380K 380W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Cheap, it works.
Cons: light weight, thin wiring, suspect quality.
Other Thoughts: I needed a PSU for a test rig on the cheap and after a month or so I have had no issues. I wouldn't put one in a build for a client or ever try to run anything too powerful but for a simple dual core test rig primarily used for HDD testing, data retrieval and transfers it is a perfect fit. Have had 6 drives at once going (with sata splitters of course) and no issues of any kind.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works and has a simple USB IR dongle. No need to have a silly IR repeater as the older WMC remotes did to function half the time. The USB extension cable is a plus for systems without a front USB port or trying to hide the dongle while increasing the range.
Cons: THIS IS FOR A COMPUTER, nothing else. If this confuses you do not buy it. The range is about 7 feet at best with dongle front facing. Not great build quality but not poor by any means.
Other Thoughts: I ordered this for a client (I am a computer tech with 15 years experience) It worked fine and they have never complained. Simple pug and play, range is average. You must have the dongle front facing, the included cable makes it easy. If I needed another WMC remote for P.C. alone I'd likely buy this myself considering the low price. If you want a full featured remote that can cover all your HTPC needs get a Logitech but you MIGHT still need to order this for the IR dongle if you don't have one on hand/integrated.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: All in all I'm very happy. Worked right away with no issues. Using non-approved RAM it clocked to proper speeds and timing.
The drivers both on disk AND on their support site are TERRIBLE. Still can't get drives to work in anything other than IDE mode, NIC would freeze, get an error and then CPU would go into overload as soon as system came out of sleep mode. All were driver issues.
I have only experienced such issues on VERY low-end boards before. I can understand the driver disk not being current or having flaws but their own support site? Usually I DL the current, manufacturer approved drivers from their site before doing an install and was surprised to find them so buggy. ASUS, the current drivers are easy to find and SOME people out there trust their manufacturers to keep a brand new board's support site current.
For this kind of easily correctable (yet neglected) issue and the hideous colour scheme I'm knocking off 1 star.
