3.0 out of 5 stars Great possibilities hindered by weak fans., May 19, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The ability to place these fans in a multitude of different configurations is great. Only the fans that the kit comes with move a minuscule amount of air even at their fastest setting. While the fans are just barely enough to cool my cards lowly passive heatsink, I doubt this will help an actual gaming GPU.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one ! ! ! Not the cheap 3rd party imitations ! ! !, May 19, 2016

This is the fuel pump I should have bought in the first place.
Originally bought a 3rd party pump that only lasted 21k miles before stranding me. Lesson learned, buy only OEM electronics when it comes to making the car actually move.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great ! ! ! Be sure to get a GOOD hard drive though, April 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:
Allowed me to use an old 2TB WD Green drive that I had laying around for essentially a $35 upgrade!

Cons:
PS4 doesn't like the Green drive all that much. Getting it to do the initial boot after any system update requires a USB thumb drive with firmware image on it. Works great otherwise.

Other:
Finally picked up 4TB SHDD and no issues at all

5.0 out of 5 stars Great caddy for computers and game systems, January 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Easy to use external caddy that works with my Xbone, WiiU and several computers flawlessly.

The only issue I ran into was using this caddy through a USB 3.0 hub.
The drive would format but become locked (read only) forcing partition deletion and recreation. If the drive was already usable it would drop from the system within 5 minutes and the data written would be corrupted. So... Don't use this on a USB hub and you should be fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finicky But Solid Switch Once Power Cycling Everything, January 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is for the 4-Port with Optical out.
After moving my game systems to my office I needed to supplement my 4-port KVM with more inputs and preferably convert the HDMI audio to optical for my Astro A50 headset so I would not have to purchase an additional optical switch or manually move the SPIDF cable when switching between game systems and computers.

Enter this (initially) finicky 4-port switch.
My initial setup fed the KVM through port 1, PS4 on port 2, Xbone on port 3 and WiiU on port 4. At first I will admit that I was less than impressed with the switches performance and compatibility. The computers would only feed pink colored images, I could see the PS4 image but no sound, the Xbone would show nothing at all or cycle between black and a 480p image and the WiiU... Well the WiiU worked perfectly.

Let the troubleshooting begin ! ! !
Move ports around? Same problems different ports.
Disconnect output to monitor and reconnect? Computer now has great image until monitor power is cycled.
Power cycle switch? No images from anything except WiiU.
Disconnect everything, unplug all power from all devices, reconnect HDMI, plug power back into everything, power everything up one at a time? FREAKING SUCCESS ! ! ! Well until I turned the monitor off, then the computers do pink screen of fury at me but that is corrected with replugging the HDMI to the monitor (pretty sure this is a KVM issue) so I just turn the switch to an unpowered port and have had no issues in the 14 days since.

As for my overall satisfaction after squashing the bugs? Pretty darn happy. Picture quality is perfect and the audio blasting through the A50s from each and every system / computer is awesome as always.

This "much thicker than the original" cable keeps the kids playing for hours ! ! !
Just make sure you are using a "quality high amp" charger or the display will flicker when the WiiU controller gets low.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of CFM but noisy on fastest setting, November 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The fans themselves are great! They are a bit noisy (surprisingly buzzy actually, like an rc airplane) on the fastest setting but I bought them strictly for their price point vs. cubic feet per minute and as the server is in its own room the noise doesn't matter.

The screws are rubbish though. The actual indent for the Philips head is entirely too small and even with the proper size bit you are going to find yourself either stripping out the screw or rounding off your screwdriver as you have to thread the hard plastic of the fan. If you can prethread the holes the screws are sufficient.
