In-Win K2 BASIC Thin Mini-ITX Black case with 120W power adapter, heat sink - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact and very solidly built, the best Thin Mini ITX case I have used so far. Everything fit perfectly and the construction is heavy gauge, partially because of the optional monitor stand which would be pretty good in some situations.

Cons: Angled SATA cable exits in wrong direction. I haven't checked if that is because of the motherboard I used not following specifications, but it would be nice if the case came with two proprietary cables, one angled one way and one angled another. As it was, I had to put a piece of electrical tape in the inside of the chassis to keep the metal edge from digging at the wrong-facing connector during assembly. This is a half-egg deduction only because the rest of the case is so brilliant.

Other Thoughts: I am going to buy another one of these for use with a higher-end Q87mobo, and we'll see if the SATA connector angles the wrong way on that one. I'll update this if I can.

Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: mSATA saves space and reduces cable clutter

Cons: Used as OS drive, failed to be recognized when waking from sleep from day one, even with proper "Never sleep" power settings applied and the latest firmware "MU03," finally failed after 58 days.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I just got a bad one, or if the cheap price indicates some deeper quality issue. If Crucial makes good on their replacement warranty, I will probably sell the new replacement and switch to something different.

IOGEAR GKM571R Black USB RF Wireless Mini Keyboard with Trackball, Scroll Wheel and Backlight LED
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compact design, backlit keyboard.

Cons: Trackball is a piece of junk! For what they get for this unit, a minimally useful trackball is not too much to ask. It's just too small and too slippery to actually work. Who wants to moisten their digit to get this thing to work? A larger, rubberized ball might make all the difference. We've moved this unit to a less used machine and added a wireless mouse to make it useable.

Other Thoughts: We haven't found a useful, quality HTPC keyboard yet, even after buying three different kinds. These segment of the the computer peripheral business is simply pathetic.
