Pros: Compatible with server that it was intended for, price is competitive, works without any errors so far
Cons: Had to shut down server to install, but that isn't really any fault of the RAM.
Other Thoughts: Ordered two of these to expand the RAM in a server running vSphere. When they arrived, one stick had a nice heat sink installed. The other was a bare stick. Product and part numbers on the sticks were exactly the same. My guess is that somewhere along the way, the manufacturer decided to make these less expensive by no longer including the heat sink and I just happened to get one stick from each version. It hasn't seemed to really affect operating temperatures as this server is running in a room with a dedicating cooling system. Just thought I'd point out the oddity to anyone else looking at ordering this product.
I took away one egg for the inconsistency of heat sink and I think the price could be better for RAM with these specs. It is server RAM, so I know it is supposed to be of higher quality, but still, I think Newegg could do a little better.
This review is from: APEVIA TFX-AP300W 300W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Fair price, fair cable length, quiet, and came with a power cord.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace the failed PSU in a Dell Vostro 200 series SFF computer. Seems to work just fine for this use. 4-pin power for motherboard was a bit of a stretch to reach the connector on the motherboard, but not extreme or worrisome.
I like the black painted metal of this PSU vs the original grey...but it's not like anyone seems this ever again anyway.
Only time will tell as far as reliability goes.
This review is from: EVGA 100-U3-UV39-KR UV Plus+ 39
Pros: USB 3.0, capable of higher resolutions than my HD monitor, DisplayLink drivers, now includes HDMI option.
Cons: Came with a bad USB 3.0 cable I guess. Have been using UV+ 19 for a year or so. Got this as an upgrade and handing down the UV+ 19 to another user. Plugged into my monitor and USB 2.0 connection on my laptop. Light came on for the device...no output...no new hardware found message from Win7 64-bit. Tried 3 other USB 2.0 ports on my laptop with same results. Tried another USB 3.0 cable I had laying around (lucky as these cables are not yet commonplace) and device worked immediately. So, if yours powers on but you get no image, try replacing the USB 3.0 cable first.
Other Thoughts: This is a recurring problem we have had with EVGA USB to VGA/DVI/HDMI adapters over the years (the firm I work for owns probably 12 of these devices now). They build a rock solid little device and bundle it with a cheap cable. For the older devices it was a retractable USB 2.0 cable that always seemed to go bad or have the retractor come apart after 6 months to a year. Apparently the USB 3.0 cables are from a similar low quality supplier.
Come on EVGA, pair your great product with great cables to give users a great experience!
I will contact EVGA support to see what I can do as far as a replacement cable without sending back the whole device. I will post an updated review in the future if this device goes belly up or if the mail-in-rebate process doesn't work out.
