Pros: Cheap large storage... Runs cooler than regular drive..
Cons: Purchased two of these together... After one and a half years, one of the drives is failing...
Other Thoughts: Prior to purchasing these, I ran two 2 TB WD Green drives for over three years without issues. I ignored the negative reviews about this drive based on my prior experience, and now I'm kicking myself for it.
If you value your data, do yourself a favor and don't purchase these.
Pros: Small footprint, nice cosmetic finish, good ventilation.
Cons: Could use additional 3.5-inch internal bays, power and HDD lights can be harshly bright
Other Thoughts: Since this is a relatively small case, one must take care in not overcrowding it with components. It sports a nice black finish and it easily fit a microATX motherboard. It comes with a 120mm intake fan which is making it possible to keep the CPU temperatures in the 30-40 degree Celsius range, and you can slap a 92mm exhaust fan to make the best of air circulation. There's also a large mesh grill on the side panel that helps repel the heat as well.
Product description says you have four 3.5-inch bays but I could only feasibly fit three drives in there. Adding a fourth drive requires that you install it right on top of each other, risking an electrical short or shortened drive life from heat build-up.
Overall, the case is a solid winner for the money.
