This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Lots of room behind the motherboard tray, and mostly well located slots for putting cables through. Didn't notice any sharp edges. Second case for me with this cable hiding 'technology' - have to admit the OCD part of me really liked it. Filled it out most of the way and it still looks neat and is very quiet despite all the holes...
Cons: Did I mention filled out? That 3.5in hard drive bay has atrocious air flow through it when it is full. The middle two drives suffer the most. All my other cases get up in the low 30s Celsius max when working hard. I had to put a Noctua F12 in just to get the middle drives down to 40 Celsius. Probably won't be happy until I put in one of their industrial 2k RPM drives. Never had to work this hard to cool HDs.
Other Thoughts: Combined with a modular Corsair 600W power supply, and it works pretty well. Got an IcyDock 3.5in to 5.25in adapter to add the USB3 based card reader. Took a pcie1x for a Hoo-Too USB3 adapter - the chipset matched the one on the ASUS mobo so no further driver installation needed.
Oh - a little, neatly cut, square of blue painter's tape tamed that power led. Competition for the Nebo otherwise...
Pros: Good sound for bass heads; very, very comfortable; reasonably clear.mid and treble
Discontinued now, should lead to better...
Only difference between II and this is flat vs round cable - user choice.
Cons: one button control - volume doesn't work with Jelly Bean or KitKat at all, and last versions of Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS
Other Thoughts: Straight from the Klipsch site:
Volume Control (Android 4.0.3 or later - all phones)
The volume control function in the Klipsch Control app is overridden by the system command to launch voice search.
IOW, _not_ a secret, stop yer cryin'. Probably why _all_ S4 are replaced now by R6.
Pros: With the 19/20 pin internal connector, combined with the type A connector (either internal or...), the USB 3.0 ports PLUS the five (5) concurrent card slots ALL run at full 3.0 speed. Sweet.
The molex power connector makes sure they all have enough juice.
The reader has an E-Sata connector too.
Talk about packing a ton of good stuff into a little 3.5 inch slot, this one has it.
Construction quality is decent. Certainly I've seen worse...
Hey, if you've got a spare pci-e x1, add some external plus an internal Type A sockets using something like a syba PEX20135, and you can stay internal with all the cables. Just sayin'...
BTW, shouldn't complain if you didn't think it through before purchase...
Cons: No manual. Really. If not for the good people writing reviews here, how the heck would others know how this thing works? Like, that the right USB 3.0 goes to the Type A connector? Sheesh. That's the one egg off.
Other Thoughts: My motherboard almost stopped Windows 7 from working when I installed what was (for the mobo mfg) the latest driver for the onboard USB 3.0 - but only when this Reader was connected. Boot went from around a minute to about 20. Really.
Took much longer than that to troubleshoot. Motherboard wasn't Etron or Renesas - it is VIA. Works just fine after installing latest driver available from VIA website. Go figure.
I could have blamed this on Thermaltake. I could blame it on GigaB. I could blame it on society... No, I just isolated problem and found the improved driver.
Now all I want to do is raz the people who didn't do their troubleshooting props before RMA'ing the product. Tech Knowledge of (cough) 5? Oh My Goodness...
