Nippon Labs 6ft Model DP-DVI-6 6 ft. DisplayPort to DVI-D 28 AWG Cable M-M 6 feet- OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Can't rely on it, probably wouldn't buy again 05/17/2014

This review is from: Nippon Labs 6ft Model DP-DVI-6 6 ft. DisplayPort to DVI-D 28 AWG Cable M-M 6 feet- OEM

Pros: Worked with many displays and video cards. Seems to be a descent cable.

Cons: When connecting a Dell E248WFP to a Dell PowerEdge T20 the display was never recognized. Didn't matter if I plugged it in before boot or after Windows running. Nothing -- not even a sound from Windows of a recognized display when plugging in. I tried for a good 15 minutes before giving up. Other monitors on this server with this same cable worked.

A Dell 023NVR (also a passive DP->DVI adapter) worked between these two devices perfectly.

Other Thoughts: Next time I need a passive DP->DVI connection I will probably just buy another one of the Dell adapters and a DVI cable. So far those have been 100% compatible for me while this cable is not.

If I'm paying a premium for an adapter integrated in a cable I expect it to work as well as a discrete solution.

NORCO RPC-430 Black 4U Rackmount Super Short Depth 15.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs New revision fixes a lot of my old complaints 01/01/2014

This review is from: NORCO RPC-430 Black 4U Rackmount Super Short Depth 15.25" Server Case 6 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: I bought a new batch of these at the end of Nov-2013 and Norco has changed the design a bit since my Aug 2013 review.

They now correctly advertise up to 12x10.5 board support and not EATX.

The front panel is completely changed with working LEDs for: power, HDD, three LANs, and an alert. Also, two USB 2.0 ports with a standard 9-pin plug. And it all works this time!

Cons: Paint quality on my new batch wasn’t as good. Came out of boxes with some light scratches and such already. Not really too big of deal for something that I’ll never look at and is in this price range. (I would subtract eggs from a more expensive chassis with this sort of paint quality)

Strangely, one of the USB ports is a blue USB 3.0 plug. But, they don’t have the cable to plug in to a USB 3.0 header on a mobo. Works fine as dual 2.0 ports though.

Many fewer holes in the side of the case now. I guess if you’re using Norco’s rails this shouldn’t be an issue but if you are doing anything creative you might have a harder time.

Other Thoughts: Too bad Newegg doesn’t let you upload pics in a review so I could show changes.

Reluctantly giving 5 eggs to balance out my old review since panel is much improved and case is advertised correctly now. Still don’t like the bend-and-break I/O slot covers though.

Athena Power Cable-PCI6EPS428 6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Does what it says it does 08/23/2013

This review is from: Athena Power Cable-PCI6EPS428 6" PCI-E Converter

Pros: Has a nice mesh around the cables to keep them together.

Cons: 6-bin female connector seemed a bit tight and took some extra effort to mate.

Other Thoughts: I like this because it takes three 12V wires and converts it to four 12V wires. This seems theoretically better than a simple molex adapter (one 12V wire) or EPS splitter -- seems like it will maintain more 'expected' loads on all the 12V wires exiting the power supply.
