Innovation through Miniaturization
- Feb 1, 2016
Larry over at HDPlex has done as much or more than anyone I can think of to provide solutions that benefit the SFF community. Without him and his countless innovations in the small form factor power space the idea of a brickless S4M literally would have never been a thing (I think I can safely say this as the "inventor" of the brickless S4M). The product he is offering has a power budget that is 25% higher than the Dell 330W, has a significantly higher overcurrent and spike specification than the Dell 330W and is less that half the volume.Thanks, But I have a genuine reason to be pissed....
so far, we don't have a genuine brickless solution for Skyreach which can take a 65W cpu and above 1060...
This should have been an ideal solution, its too close for the same, but becomes unfit with very minor shortcomings..
Imagine you have prepared for a holiday for months and miss the flight in minutes..
For you to sit here and criticize the amazing product he is offering in the 400W AC-DC, to be genuinely pissed off that he hasn't ticked all of your boxes and made what you deem to be the perfect S4M solution, is something that I frankly find offensive. If you are choked about the PSU being 58mm and not perfectly fitting the S4M's front inner chassis, then get some sand paper and put in some elbow grease. If you're concerned about the C6 inlet he's chosen being an electrical issue then buy a grounded C8 inlet on Mouser and wire it yourself. If you think that EMI is going to be an issue, then buy an inlet with EMI filtering and 6.0A rating that was linked five or six posts back. These devices are designed by professional electrical engineers in Hong Kong and fully certified by UL/FAA/CE etc. at significant cost to HDPlex. This means that the units legally meet stringent enough electrical certifications to be sold not only in China but also North America and the EU. Unless you are an electrical engineer with enough credentials to provide an educated opinion on these matters, I suggest you refrain from ALL-CAPSING PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH YOUR OPINIONS ON THESE MATTERS.
Larry designed this unit for his HDPlex cases. At my urging he made all reasonable accommodations to make it fit the S4M, but due to the laws of physics, thermal dissipation and component size/layout this is the best he could do. That you can actually come into our community and spout this kind of garbage is complete and total bullshit. For lack of a better word, you sir are a total c**t.
