CORSAIR RM Series RM450 450W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Corsair RM450 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very quiet at low loads (no noise until ~150W); reliable function; 5 year warranty; high efficiency; reasonably priced; fully modular; good looking for a PSU

Cons: Fan doesn't kick in often, but it's definitely noticeable when it does; modular cables too long and too stiff for optimal ITX use (although, what is? Maybe Silverstone Strider with short cable kit?)

Other Thoughts: Fan seems to kick in at around 150-200W after some use in a small ITX box. My computer's peak load is at ~150W (i5 3450, 750 Ti, 16GB memory, 256GB SSD+1TB 2.5" HDD, B75 chipset), so that means it only kicks in during an intense gaming session. Also, for that guy who says he can't get a replacement due to warranty running out--this thing came out last year. Warranty is 5 years. I don't think you've got this thing for five years.

Also, make sure this thing gets good ventilation. Running it passively most of the times means it's going to be cooking itself with higher-than-optimal temperature compared to your normal PSUs due to, you know, fan not running. Putting fan vents pointing to the top might not be a bad idea.

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast when it works. Reliable when linked with up to 8 devices.

Cons: More than 8 devices results in having to do regular reboots, and even then, it's not certain that it works. Runs a little hot.

Other Thoughts: Maybe they should have put in a bit more ventilation holes for better reliability, combined with a nice beefy heatsink. Install the custom firmware if you want to expand its capability--but if it has a hard enough time handling multiple devices at the same time, would you really want to give it even more workload?

D-Link GO-SW-5GE 5-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch, Metal Case

This review is from: D-Link GO-SW-5GE 5-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch, Metal Case

Pros: Doesn't seem to throttle traffic like some of the earlier switches by D-Link. Sturdy metal box. Extremely compact. Reasonably priced. Has holes at bottom so you can mount it on the wall.

Cons: TrendNET's box is higher quality, even if it is a bit bigger. Metal box has rough edges that may cut fingers. Only one set of LED per port--not that it doesn't do what it needs to do, so it's not a big issue.

Other Thoughts: Power supply's warranty is 1 year, even though the switch's warranty is 3 years. It's extremely weird. Power port for the switch is on the left side as opposed to the back to make the box smaller, which is weird to me. Only tested with gigabit connection, and for that, it seems to work very well. The D-Link GO brand is quirky as well. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this box unless it undercuts TrendNET's price (which it did when I bought it.)
