This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-11003 2.5" SSD / HDD Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay with 60 mm Fan
Pros: Simple, sturdy, nicely painted. Comes with 4 tiny machine screws to mount the 2.5 drive by its sides and 4 small self-tapping screws to mount the piece to your case by its sides. Came with a fan that I don't need, it was easily removed.
Cons: The tiny screws are a bit too long for my Mushkin SSD, I was reluctant to tighten them down once I felt them bottom out in the sides of the drive. If I were OCD I would find other screws or some tiny washers or use a tiny drop of thread lock, but I prefer to get on with life.
Other Thoughts: Bone simple product. Don't downgrade it because you didn't check your case for compatibility.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill SL-300TFX -300-Watt TFX12V Power Supply - OEM
Pros: The original one that came in my case lasted through 6 years of nearly continuous use. It runs quietly, can only hear it if I shut off the other fans in the case. The new one has one more SATA drive connector and one less molex, and it still has a 3.5 floppy drive connector. Are those still used for anything?
Cons: The original didn't run forever.
Other Thoughts: The R379 Is still a good case, so I decided to replace the PS rather than scrap it. Considered fitting a larger TFX style unit into it, but doing so would block the only case fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A good value, a little over $20 to add a warm glow to your project. The thin LED strip is adhesive-backed and can be wrapped around corners, or cut as small as 5 cm / 2 in / 3 LEDs. Cut pieces can be joined with clip-on connectors, or soldered using jumper wire if you're patient and careful. The "warm white" LEDs have an attractive color and appear to have good color rendering. The dimmer control provides a good range of adjustment.
Cons: The power supply originally sent (Model SAW24-120-2000) made a buzzing noise and would cause the lights to strobe when turned up to full brightness. I complained to HitLights, who promptly sent me a different power supply (Model JY30-120-200-UD) which appears to be the supply pictured. This supply gives decent brightness, a full range of adjustment with the dimmer supplied and silent operation. Both power supplies are tagged as 12V 2000mA, but read on...
Other Thoughts: Checking with my kill-a-watt tester, the replacement power supply draws only 14-15 watts. The original (buzzing faulty) power supply could be coaxed up to about 18 watts before it started flashing. Since you can't get something for nothing, I'd bet that a better power supply that could drive a full 20-plus watts would produce better brightness.
The strip is rated for 24 watts, and at that power would probably produce about the same light level as a 2-tube 4' fluorescent fixture, which draws about 75 watts. But this kit is more for decoration than illumination, and for that is a good value.
