This product was exactly what I needed, It powers my Pi as well as several other devices I'm using that need their own power. I can put everything into a PC case and use the case fans to cool keep my solid state relays cool.
Along with a great product, Tom has been a great help. This was the first time I've done any major soldering and I didn't do a great job. Tom asked for pics and gave me some advice that got me up and working. He's been a tremendous help as someone new to electronics.
I came across PiRyte Mini ATX PSU for Raspberry Pi when looking for the possibility to install my Raspberry inside rackmount chassiss. I've seen some boards allowing connecting Pi to ATX power supply or using its power on/off buttons to shutdown the device but none of them have the AC power loss feature (If the power goes down while operating, the device boots up automatically when power is back, don't have to press the power switch). I wrote to Tom - the author of PiRyte and he wrote back, he would implement the feature. Two days later - it was done. Now the board has all these brilliant features: - possibility to power Pi from ATX power supply, - physical Power on/off, reboot button support, - 2 modes: AC power loss on or off, - board detects when you shutdown Pi from command line and kills the power after device will safely switch off the os (no data corruption) - board detects when you reboot Pi from command line and does't kill the power then. Raspberry acts now like regular server/desktop machine. If you are looking for any of those feature do not hesitate and buy PIryte Mini ATX PSU. You won't find better product somewhere else.
P.S. I'would like to thank Tom very much for his great job, perfect communication and openness for implementation of new features. I also want to thank him for sending new reprogrammed chips for free after I shared my thoughts on adding command line power/reboot handling feature. Best, Michal
Documention is complete and once assembled the product is straightforward to use. It make it easy to use a Pi as a media player in mini ATX enclosure, a pico-ATX PSU and HDD on a SATA to USB controller.
