New USB to TTL Serial Cable Adapter FTDI Chipset PL2303HX Cable Computer Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works fine, but no documentation 01/22/2014

This review is from: New USB to TTL Serial Cable Adapter FTDI Chipset PL2303HX Cable Computer Cable

Pros: Cheap, with good driver support. Works out of the box on Debian Linux, and a choice of proprietary and open source drivers are available for Mac OS X. Not sure about Windows but I'd guess it works too since the PL2303 chip is so common.

Cons: No documentation! Trial and error needed to determine which wire is which.

Other Thoughts: Overall this device is fine, but it was frustrating that no information was given on which wire corresponded to Gnd/Tx/Rx/Vcc. There are no color standards for this, and even when I cracked open the case to see the PCB, the printed labels were not correct! Eventually I figured it out (but not before spending money on a different one thinking this one was broken!)

Ground: Black
Rx: Green
Tx: White
Vcc: Red

SilenX IXP-34-12 60mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Began to fail after 2.5 years 10/28/2011

This review is from: SilenX IXP-34-12 60mm Case Fan

Pros: Very quiet.

Cons: Very low airflow, questionable durability

Other Thoughts: Installed this fan in a small server, running 24/7, in early 2009. This summer (2.5 years later) it began to make noise - it was still running, but the noise indicated that the 'fluid dynamic bearing' was failing.

Replaced the fan with a more standard unit.

Overall, a bit disappointing with the tiny airflow and relatively short life.

SilenX IXP-34-12 60mm Case Fan

3 out of 5 eggs Extremely quiet, but minimal airflow 03/29/2010

This review is from: SilenX IXP-34-12 60mm Case Fan

Pros: Very, very quiet. Pretty much silent unless you stick your ear right up to it in a very quiet room.

Cons: Minimal airflow. It is spinning but barely makes a strip of tissue paper move. The airflow isn't detectable on your skin.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the stock drive in an MSI Atom 'barebones' desktop that I use as a server. The whole thing has been running 24/7 for over a year now with two 1TB WD Green drivers, but the fan is not doing much for cooling.. It just doesn't move enough air. I think the fact that the CPUs and drives are low power types means that i've gotten away with it, but I almost wonder if no fan and just convection would be the same. But hey, it's silent and the system hasn't had an issue, so I'll give it 3 stars.
