This review is from: Nippon Labs HDB-252 Dual 2.5" HDD/SS Plastic Bracket
Pros: Simple and cheap.
Look at the pictures of the Rosewill RX-C200P and the Bytecc Bracket-35225. They're all the same product just different brand names. Get the cheapest one. The only reason why the Rosewill is rated the highest is because of the people who chose that brand and their expectations (lower regular price = lower expectations).
Cons: The only cons are the bad reviewers. Read the description, it says it's made of plastic. Don't put plastic as a con when you knew that before you bought it.
Everyone apparently has the highest tech level but they buy a cheap product and complain about it being cheap.
Other Thoughts: Read the "bad reviews" before you buy. Most of them are complaining about things that they didn't bother to check before they purchased it. I have a standard case and drives with standard mounting holes. Everything fit perfectly, i didn't have to modify anything. Even if you have something oddball, it's made of plastic so it's not difficult to drill new holes or make them bigger if you need to (this should not be a con for a cheap plastic bracket).
You have to mount this in a drive bay with screws from the sides only. If your case has a location to bottom-mount a drive, this won't work there. Look at the pictures before you buy.
Look at the position of the drives in this bracket, they WILL be close together. Take your cables into consideration (fat connectors or 90° bend connectors).
Pros: Vivid colors, adjustable heavy duty stand, simple cabinet styling with buttons that are easy to access, wide viewing angle.
Other Thoughts: Makes my other monitor (HP 2311x) look horrible! :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE - Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This is a really nice case for the price. The red on the sides of the front bezel is a nice metallic red. It probably looks brighter in some of the images because of the metallic tone reflecting the camera flash. Don't worry, it looks just like it does in the first image. The LED fan looks really tacky in the front so i moved it to the rear where i think it belongs. I can't really comment on the fans' noise because i've never used case fans before. I'm only running them at around 900 RPM so of course they're quiet. But you'd probably be looking in a higher price range or buying your own fans if you were actually concerned about how loud they'd be at full speed. I also like the shape of the side door because it seems perfect for a side window mod. I don't think i could've bought a better case for the price.
Cons: This is a really minor point for me but i wish the cables for the front panel were a bit longer so that i could hide them behind my mobo. No big deal though.
I wish Rosewill would ship these with flat screws securing the side doors and include the thumb screws in a bag instead. The thumb screws stick out on the back and if you get one like mine all four of those locations were dented in slightly, most likely due to handling in a warehouse. Not a big deal though because everything still works and it's not really noticeable being in the back.
Other Thoughts: The LED light for the power switch is blue but it doesn't look weird. My indicator light for my BD drive is also blue and same with my monitor so it really does not look out of place.
I wish more cases had as nice of styling as this one in this price range.
