Pros: Solid construction
Rubber isolators included
Works for some applications
Cons: I wish I had looked at this a bit more as the holes on the side are NOT THE FULL LENGTH OF A 3.5" HARD DRIVE. In other words this will not fit properly in most quick release type drive bays.
I still managed to make it fit by using the first two side mounting holes and letting the back be loose but this isn't ideal.
Other Thoughts: A very nice piece if this is what you need but it very well might not work for you.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I ran out of USB 3.0 ports on the back panel and needed a couple more. My board had extra 3.0 19 pin connectors so I bought one of these and put it on. The cable is a fine length and the USB port side of it doesn't block any airflow for the HD7870 its mounted right under. Its worked without any problems so far.
Cons: I wish someone made a 4 port 3.0 back panel but I couldn't find one. Not really a con though, this works perfectly if you need a couple extra USB 3.0 ports.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had no issues so far and it's worked just as it's supposed to. I was pretty impressed that it can handle 6+ drives, my HD7870 and everything else without any problems when I needed to transfer stuff between drives. Now I only have one drive so I really don't push this thing at all. Very stable voltages, processor seems to like it just fine when I push the clocks up.
Cons: My case (like many these days) has the power supply mounted on the bottom and I had a bit of an issue with the 8 pin secondary mobo power cable being too short to route through the case and around the back, I had to run the ugly cable over the top of everything until I bought an extension. Not a big complaint all things considered.
Other Thoughts: If your running one video card (or even a couple mid-range cards), a decent processor, and a few drives this is the perfect power supply. I often hear of people running uselessly massive power supplies, there really is no reason unless you've got huge power demands.
Dont be surprised if your video card uses both of the 6 pin power cables like my HD7870. Obviously cross fire or SLI wont be possible if one card takes both 6 pins to run it.
