Rosewill Hive-550, Hive Series 550W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price, performance, 80+ Bronze, modular and did I mention the price?

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: I bought this six years ago for an HTPC build. It's not the quietest thing but noise level isn't bad either (I used it in my bedroom sitting about 8-10 feet away). It was powering an Athlon X2 with one HDD and onboard graphics so it wasn't under a high power demand. It just gave up the ghost last night after six years of fine services. Only gave it four stars because I've had other PSU's last longer but I really can't complain, would buy another one to replace it if I didn't have an old PSU in the basement and wasn't saving up for a build for a new gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggs Owned for Over Four Years and Worked w/o a Hitch for Three 03/19/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN722N Wireless N150 High Gain USB Adapter, 150Mbps, w/4 dBi High Gain Detachable Antenna, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: Price, Performance, Plug-n-Play with Linux

Cons: Started dropping connection after three and a half years of use

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing for over four years now. It's in an HTPC in my upstairs bedroom. My router is downstairs and I get a strong connection. I've used it with both Mint Linux 13 and now Mint 16 and it's plug-n-play. A couple of months ago it started losing connection once every two or three days. Unplugging and re-plugging it solves the problem. Didn't dock an egg for it as I don't expect my electronics to last forever.

Rosewill RCAB-11007 – 15 Feet USB A Male to A Female Extension Cable - Black, Gold Plated Connectors
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works as advertised; long; sturdy; cost

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use this to power some gaming devices (x-box controller; Logitech G13) hooked up to an HTPC/Gaming rig in the living room. Now I can game on my 52" tv 10' away while sitting in the recliner. Cable is built strong (for a better lack of a word) so I had to hang it from a door for about a day to loosen up the curls from packaging but that's not necessarily a bad thing. No regrets would buy all over again.
