Pros: Handy, quic swappable drives
Cons: No cooling on drives. 4TB drives run hot, so I'd not want to use it for on-line storage, but great for back up, OTOH 4TB takes overnight to back up so they run hot for quite a while
Other Thoughts: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reliable, Modular, stable, Reasonably priced for what you get, and big enough for all except some of the largest multi video card builds. I've never had a problem with the two I have in service here and have installed several to replace failed drives. I have decided to standardize on these for all my regular builds. Two more on the way.
Cons: None so far after a year plus.
Other Thoughts: The basic power cables are fixed, but the rest can be plugged in as needed eliminating a wad of unnecessary cable doing nothing. Helps to make a clean and neat looking build. Video cards are getting larger and more powerful while becoming more efficient and using less power at the same time. I expect these power supplies to be sufficient for a long time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CyberPower Smart App Sinewave PR3000LCDSL 3000 VA 2700 Watts 7 Outlets UPS
Pros: Keeps a constant voltage sine wave on what ever is plugged into it when your line voltage is unstable, high or low. It also serves as a sturdy UPS. This is what people expect out of UPSs that never heard of line conditioners.
Cons: Not really a con for those in the know, but this is a 30A device and most 120 outlets and wiring are for 15 or 20A. Code requires an electrical circuit (breaker, wire gauge, and outlet for 30A so ths come with a 30A, TwistLok connector. If you don't already have the circuit, it will be a new circuit for the electrician and a permit will be required in most areas.
Other Thoughts: Technically, replacing a regular outlet with a twistlok or the plug with a 20A will work, but it's a violation of code and quite likely a fire hazard. Pulling 30A through a 15 or 20A circuit and wire will likely result in more voltage drop with increasing load and that heats the wire I think the 30A circuit is well worth the effort.READ FULL REVIEW
