Most Favorable Review

Couldn't be easier for cooling.

AC Infinity MULTIFAN S3, Quiet 120mm USB Fan for Receiver DVR Playstation Xbox Computer Cabinet Cooling
AC Infinity MULTIFAN S3, Quiet 120mm USB Fan for Receiver DVR Playstation Xbox Computer Cabinet Cooling

Pros: Low setting is near-silent, unnoticeable unless it's next to your head and you're a Ferengi. Does the job of cooling the enormous wifi router I got. USB power off the router itself was easy, and the rubber feet meant installation was "gee I guess I'll just lay it on top" and done.

Cons: Did not grant 3 wishes. Does not fly under own power. Somehow my life is still devoid of meaning.

Overall Review: Simple, works, quiet, and the constant airflow does quite a bit to mitigate temperatures for devices.

Most Critical Review

Cheap and it shows.

ASUS RT-AC66U B1 AC1750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, AiMesh Compatible for Mesh Wi-Fi System
ASUS RT-AC66U B1 AC1750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router, AiProtection Lifetime Security by Trend Micro, AiMesh Compatible for Mesh Wi-Fi System

Pros: Cheapest router that works with my existing ASUS mesh.

Cons: Unreliable, needs to be rebooted more frequently than my other ASUS routers, even with the same firmware. Should have spent more money and gotten a higher end model.

Overall Review: My #1 priority is reliability. Throughput is nice and all, but if I have to keep screwing with it I don't care if it can stream 16 4k videos and do the dishes at the same time, it's not worth it.

Fantastic for octopi.

Noctua NF-A4x10 5V, Premium Quiet Fan, 3-Pin, 5V Version (40x10mm, Brown)

Pros: Barely audible, effective for cooling airflow for raspberry pi, runs forever.

Cons: Cables are a little bulky for a raspberry pi case, but not too hard to manage.

Overall Review: Noctua never disappoints, other than the curious color choice. It's basically silent, unless you literally hold your ear so close you can feel the air move. I've had it running 24/7 for months, it just keeps going with no issues. This is my #1 pick for an octopi deployment (with a cpu heat sink). Probably a bit overkill unless it's a warm environment, but if you have a high load application running on an Rpi all the time it's a great choice.

Does the job I wanted from it.

SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 1TB SATA III V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-76E1T0B/AM

Pros: Capacity/price ratio is good.More reliable and less power/heat than a similar HDDrop in replacement for a 2.5" HD

Cons: Not the fastest SSD format, M2 is faster than SATA and more compact.

Overall Review: I went with this one for a backup drive for a small footprint server. I had to format it for mac, which was painless, and it just freaking works. It's a lot faster than the HD it replaced, not that it matters that much. More importantly, uses less power and produces less heat, and will likely outlast the server (it's getting on in years, will be replacing it with the 2nd generation apple silicon platform when it comes out).

Perfect for Raspberry Pi 4.

Pros: Does the job with the Rpi 4, get two and run two monitors off it. Having a cable to provide flex keeps the micro HDMI connector safe from breakage.

Cons: Doesn't do my dishes. I keep hoping someday...

Overall Review: If you need to run an HDMI monitor off a Raspberry Pi 4, get one. Need to run two, get two. Need to run three? Gonna have to get another rpi 4, but sure get three.

Rock solid in dashcam application for Tesla Model 3.

IOGEAR GFR306SD Compact USB 3.0 SD 4.0 Card Reader - For USB-A/USB-C
IOGEAR GFR306SD Compact USB 3.0 SD 4.0 Card Reader - For USB-A/USB-C

Pros: Combined with a high endurance micro SD card, I'm getting much more reliable video storage for my Tesla's built in cameras. A usb SSD is also an option, but this consumes less current and is more heat resistant, which is good for inside a car. Reasonable size for something that can also read SD cards.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Does the job, does it well, does it reliably. Did not break the bank.
