Pros: Plenty of power to recharge cell phone a few times
Cons: Dead after 6mo.
Other Thoughts: Worked fine for 6mo....recharged many times. Now it doesn't turn on to charge attached cell phone....or any other USB device.
Ravpower wants Newegg to replace, eventhough it is outside of Newegg's 30day window.
Pros: I was looking for a small case for a Gigabyte GC-H87N-WIFI mobo. This is basically for a student PC. Since I won't be adding any other HW except an SSD, this fits my needs. IN WIN also has a 200W PS, but I didn't want to take chances...especially if I were to upgrade something. The 3.4GHz i5 is rated at 85W and the SSD is 2W, so really, this is overkill.
The key reason for choosing this case was the head space over the CPU. Other desktop cases put the PS above the mother board and potentially block the fan. This case has the PS to the side and out of the way.
The spec show the PS to be 200W, but the label on the PS definitely says 300W. Also, be cautious, there are other IN WIN BP655 cases that look the same but have different prices and different options. I think this one was the best for the price (when considering shipping); at least when I bought it.
Case fan and PS fan are surprisingly quiet; however, quiet is a relative word. You don't really hear it in a room, but if you are within 3ft, you will know it is on.
Cons: Front panel looks a little blah, but the fit and function are great. PS cables are a bit of a mess. You will either have cables bunched up in front of the PS fan intake or the case fan; however, I think there is plenty of room for air movement.
Other Thoughts: I populated my case with:
Gigabyte GC-H87N-WIFI mobo
Intel i5 3.4GHz 85W processor 1150
Plextor M5P 128G SSD
This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S80G Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch
Pros: Works as expected
Other Thoughts: Having a Trendnet router, I thought I'd stick with a brand that works well. It also helped that it was on sale and got a rebate too. Hooked it up to my TV and BluRay player and it works great.READ FULL REVIEW
