D-Link Amplifi HD Media Router 1000 (DIR-657) Wireless N300, HD Fuel QoS, USB SharePort, Gigabit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's not edible. You wouldn't want to each trash anyways.

Cons: Wireless drops every few hours, requires a router reboot to temporarily get a connection again. I can go on and on about all the things I've tried, but that won't matter.

Other Thoughts: Please, save yourself the headache and time and stay away from this defective product. If I had known about it being this problematic, I would not have accepted it even if it was FREE. It's not truly "free" when you spend a lot of time trying to diagnose and troubleshoot, only to end up realizing you've gone through all that frustration for nothing. At least having no router at all would save me that time/frustration.

Please look at all the other reviews, and you can see the same recurring problem of wifi problem and constant rebooting can only temporarily fix it for a day max.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1375M 1375W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This incompetent reviewer below me claims his tech level is high, yet he has no idea what he bought. He failed to realize this PSU is MULTI RAIL and overloaded almost all the power on a single rail, blaming the PSU for shutting down.

All the PCI-E cables are on the 12V2 rail, which is only max 900w. He tried to run 4x 290s off 900w, are you kidding me?? The OCP kicked in to shut down the system, it did exactly what it was suppose to do for safety reason. Go buy a newb-friendly single rail PSU if you don't even know how to split up the load...

Cons: I took 1 egg off because cables are rather short, and there are 2 8-pin EPS cables that are NOT modular. Most of the time, you only need 1 EPS cable, almost all the cables are modular, and one you don't need can't even be removed.

Also, two of the PCI-e cables has a 8-pin plug that does not have the option to remove 2 pins to make it a 6-pin plug. The notches on this makes it so that it's not compatible to plug into 6-pin connectors. Almost all PSU's noadays have 6+2 pin so you can choose between 6 or 8 pin connector. Not a huge deal since they inlucded so many PCI-E cables.

Other Thoughts: I correctly load-balanced both 12V1 and 12V2 rails, and this can continuously pull over 1300w (DC) no problem. It's also boarderline platinum efficiency.

Rosewill RV2-600 600 W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: only pros i can think of is that it's a decent price with the assumption that it will work, and also it came from newegg

Cons: hmm where can i start... when i plugged it in and turned it on, there were some really loud clicks that came from this unit. my first though was that the fan was hitting something and surely enough, there was a stiff light pink wire sticking out that the fan was grinding on. i had to take something small and stick it through the fan grill to push the dam wire down. that fixed the clicking noise. second, the kill switch is permanently stuck on the "ON" position! there is a spring in there that keeps it in this position, and when you try to switch it off, it'll spring back to the on position. seriously? i'm not sure if that's with all these units, or i just got a defective one that does that. either way, this is not acceptable. last and most important, after 10 minutes of usage on this brand new thing, my computer crashed and this unit is not able to turn back on. 3 flaws on this unit, that is some serious control quality issue.

Other Thoughts: this PSU didn't even launch that long ago, and it's not even 80+ certified. that is one indicator that it's low quality. good thing i bought it less than a month ago so i can return it. otherwise, i would have opened up this piece of shiznats just to see who the OEM is. i have NEVER had a PSU died on me before until now, and i've bought over 30 ever since my computer hobby or building custom ones for other people. it was a shell shocker that i got for $35, gave it a try, and never again will i get a rosewill PSU. you never know who the OEM is that rosewill rebrands.
