(a) Small! Perfect size for supplying power to a Mini-ITX or Pico-ITX board. Note that the AC/DC adapter is not included. I would order the AC/DC adapter together with the PSU to get a good discount unless you already have a functioning compatible AC/DC adapter available.
(b) Cool and quiet. Yay!!
Cons: One star off for a lack of serious documentation. Hobbyists generally know what they are doing and they know to be careful but it would be very helpful to have a user guide from the manufacturer with photographs depicting precise interfacing the 20-PIN PSU to 24-PIN motherboard PSU connectors. Nobody wants to risk shorting or burning a motherboard or anything else, for that matter!
Notes for 24-PIN motherboard PSU connections:
(a) The PSU clip will not line up to the motherboard catch for grasping. However, the clip and catch should still be on the *same* side before making the PSU connection.
(b) Viewing with the motherboard catch "on top" ("north"), the PSU connector should be inserted flush right (right-justified) into the motherboard PSU connector. This aligns PIN 1 on both connectors.
(c) The left-most 4 motherboard PINs will be left exposed (unused) which is not an issue according to the supplier.
The voltage would have variation of .2 to .7 in less than few seconds; the current variation was smaller but still was way above the expected tolerance. I have a standard ATX PSU (not even a top of the line), and I would get readings that would fluctuate in the order of the 0.01-0.09....one order of magnitude smaller basically. Some main board may be more tolerant with the variation; mine didn't like it at all, especially the video out, which would loose sync with the monitor at random.
The size is awesome; no moving parts, super quiet. It fits basically anywhere you have few inches.the only caveat is that if you load it more than 65% of the total watt consumption, you will need a fan blowing on it, otherwise it overheat (this is what the manual says; I needed just 45W, while the PSU is rated for 120W max, so I was below 50%).
Other than that, when they work, they are great.
I bought this specifically to address an issue the stock PicoPSU-80 has with the D2500CC motherboard. With this combination when the system is powered completely off using the operating system or hardware power button soft off function the system will shut down as expected but then the power supply will cycle on and off about once a second making a clicking sound until the system is either powered back up or unplugged from the 12V supply that runs this PSU.
It doesn't look safe for the motherboard. Support team from http://www.mini-box.com/site/support.html is really disappointing. They probably want to help, but they probably cannot get information within the company to suggest a workaround/debug or replace the item.
It's very frustrating experience with the product and mini-box support.
Anyhow I just robbed a 4-pin connector from an old PSU and wired it in with the PicoPSU.
Really neat, efficient device. Just be sure you have the connectors you need.
