3 out of 5 eggs Low-Profile Supported ? 02/13/2014

This review is from: Mediasonic HP1-SU3 PCI Express USB 3.0 ProBox Card

Pros: I'm sure it works fine. Got it for free with a 2u server chassis I bought.

Cons: No low-profile pci mount.

Other Thoughts: I received this for free with a 2u server chassis. Unfortunately it is useless unless I want a gaping hole into my box and a loose card because it doesn't come with a low-profile mount. It does say on the box. "Low profile mount supported"...but doesn't come with one. Yes I suppose it doesn't quite say "Low-Profile Mount Included" So that's why I blame (mostly) the chassis company for their incompetence. So moral of the story, Low-Profile mount supported does not mean it comes with one. Don't feel bad if it fools you though because apparently it fooled an entire server chassis manufacturing company and myself. Also, upon further thinking, one may think, "Well where do I get the low profile bracket for this thing that supports low profile brackets." Beats me, you know its not like you can go out and buy a standard interchangeable for everything low profile bracket.

This is almost like selling a coffee machine and saying to the customer "coffee pot supported" and not including the product only specific coffee pot.

3 out of 5 eggs Power Button Doesn't Work 02/13/2014

This review is from: NORCO RPC-231 Black 2U Rackmount Server Chassis 2 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: I've ordered this item before and it worked amazingly. Its cheap for a server chassis, and good quality for being cheap. Well this time...not so much.

Cons: I noticed that the model I got was slightly different then the model I received the first time I ordered this thing. The main difference was in the rack handles, they were plastic instead of metal like last time.

No big deal, everything else was the same and the plastic handles were sturdy enough. So I went ahead and put everything under the hood. Great so I go to turn it on......Nothing. I'm thinking to myself, "great hours of troubleshooting." My first inclination is the PSU, but first I digress to my toddler instincts and mashed the power button like a caveman fixing a rocket ship by banging two rocks together. After pressing the reset button on accident twice the thing comes on. I switched the power and reset header and now it goes on and off with the reset switch. The power switch is broken...the last thing I would of thought to be the problem but thank lord I mashed those buttons. Docked off 2 eggs for this otherwise a great case.

Other Thoughts: So if you have the classic "new computer won't turn on" situation, keep in mind, it might just be that the power button is broken.
