Antec P50 WINDOW ILLUSION Black Micro ATX Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not usable with the ASUS GeForce STRIX GTX 960 video Card 02/16/2016

This review is from: Antec P50 WINDOW ILLUSION Black Micro ATX Computer Case

Pros: Compact Micro ATX case.
Motherboard and storage are in separate compartments.
Comes with two 120mm case cooling fans and one 80mm fan for hard drive compartment.
Front fans can be controlled by 3-speed switch or motherboard fan management.
Can handle 240mm liquid CPU coolers.
Easy to access USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connectors when used on top of desk.

Cons: Not usable with the ASUS GeForce STRIX GTX 960 video Card, the card is too tall.
Light weight metal and plastic construction.
The paper user manual is useless, no PDF version available.
Cheap plastic case feet.

Other Thoughts: I do like this case, even with all its shortcomings. Do your research if you intend to purchase this case.

Orico 2595SUS3-RD Aluminum Alloy Tool-Free 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice looking tool-less enclosure. The eSATA performance was good for an external enclosure with a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB:
Sequential Read: 391.942 MB/s
Sequential Write: 381.532 MB/s
The USB 3.0 performance was just average with the same drive:
Sequential Read: 221.476 MB/s
Sequential Write: 216.447 MB/s
I've read that the Asmedia USB 3.0 chipset in the new generation enclosures is much faster. Still, this easily beats all the other enclosures I own.

Cons: Finicky latching mechanism requires some finesse. No bottom feet were included. The USB 3.0 connector is slightly skewed and seems fragile.

Other Thoughts: There's no information about the chipset used in the enclosure at their web site, but they did post some reviews with benchmarks.

SYBA SY-ADA20079 InfoZone SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to SATA III Device Adapter Cable with AC Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I used this device with one of my Seagate 1TB 3.5" hard disks and it worked well. The 3.5" hard drive did not power up until it was connected to a USB port, even though I connected the power adapter first. My OCZ SSD worked fine without the AC Power Adapter, I just connected it to one of the USB 3.0 ports. I've only had it a short time, but it seems to work as advertised, it's as fast as the USB port's maximum speed for fast devices like my SSD.

Cons: Short USB 3.0 cable.

Other Thoughts: Contrary to what I read in the reviews, it will put the 3.5" drive to "sleep" when left unattended, it wakes when you access it. I benchmarked my Seagate 1TB HDD with HD Tune, using this adapter, and it was as fast as the internal SATA 6G connection on my ASUS motherboard.
