Pros: The price for this case is right where I needed it. I was setting up a MySQL cluster group so I needed a case with lots of HD bays, but decently priced. The case it's self seem to well made for the most part.
Cons: 1 case did have a dead power LED, but that was fine, I used one of the Nic LED's on the front as a replacement.
Who ever designed the tool-less bays needs their head examined. It's what cause me to rate this 3 eggs. The tool-less drive holders are a pain to place on the drives. As well in my case I had to take a hacksaw to them and remove a section of the handles in order to get my power cables to properly connect to all 8 of the hard drives. Without doing that it was so tight of a fit that I just could not get them to connect. In fact I broke part of the power connector form the power supply trying to get it all to connect before I grabbed the hacksaw.
Other Thoughts: Could use a better cable management system. The rail that runs a cross it is fine, but I can see it causing air flow issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The drive is really fast when compared to my old 7200RPM hard drive i had.
Cons: With in 1 a month window the drive started to corrupt files. There was never anything disk heavy running on it. I was sure go in and make sure defrag, index, and a lot of services were turned off to get the max life out of the drive. Once it started corrupting files it wouldn't stop even after a few reformats of the computer. I have had to go back to my old harddrive. Turned out to be a waste of money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The quality of the RAM is great for the price. Similar ram from others is normally $30-$50 more in price. I just recently upgraded my whole computer system and got these cause my last computer had the same G.Skill Ram sticks in it for over year. Before that i had kingston and crucial which i seem to be replacing every couple months cause of the over clocking.
Other Thoughts: NewEgg needs to not send these in a envelope. Moist of the reviews i've been seeing is damage during shipping. They do make small enough boxes that you can ship these in.READ FULL REVIEW
