This review is from: SuperMicro PWS-801-1R 800W Server Power Supply
Pros: I've been building SuperMicro servers for about 4 years now, some of the oldest have these power supply modules in them and have operated flawlessly under 24/7 load. Some are not in the most hospitable locations for a server to be, but they've still continued to operate without fail.
Cons: These only fit SuperMicro cases. Not really a con, their cases are very nice. It is difficult to make a case that is worth the amounts of money they ask, but they succeed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Edimax BR-6228NS 150 Mbps 11n Wireless Broadband Router with 4 Port Switch, featured with intelligent iQ-Setup for hassle free installation and configuration, Green technology for electricity saving.
Pros: Edimax has traditionally provided excellent hardware for the price. The web based GUI is nothing pretty, but is more full-featured than many Linksys/Cisco and Netgear products I've used. More DynDNS providers to choose from, more options for virtual servers, static routing, parental controls, etc.. Very nice unit overall.
Cons: Not really "cons", but as per the Edimax standard, they have "skimped" where they can to keep the cost at the amazing low prices. The included ethernet cable is 4 pin only, each of the RJ45 ports has only 4 pins. This is all that's required for the intended purposes and traditionally with Edimax, is all done to prevent "skimping" on the internal components that matter.
Other Thoughts: Unit uses a 5V power brick rather than the 12V most manufacturers use. This may lead to a cooler operating/longer lasting unit.
Time will tell...
Pros: Great case, built solid, good airflow, extra 2.5" drive mount below 5.25 bays for SSD.
Cons: Sucks air from under the chassis which collects dust behind the motherboard, this should be filtered...
The 5.25 bays should have "stealth" covers that remain in place and hide the optical drive. Typical DVD/CD drives are black or white, neither look good in this silver faced case. HP, Dell, Gateway, Apple, Acer, and others all know to hide the face of DVD/CD drives, yet companies that specialize in cases like antec don't seem to care.
