This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Micro 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTMCK/16GB
Pros: Small, large capacity, USB jack cover
Cons: Small, USB jack cover (These are not really cons, just things that may be good or bad to you).
Other Thoughts: I ordered 2 of these little USB drives so I could have a spare (never can have too many) and another to send some data to family out of state. I give this little thumb drive 5 eggs since it was a great price, it has decent read/write speeds and compact. If you are looking for a great drive with a small footprint, this is the one for you. Keep in mind, it is small. The cover for the USB jack is larger than the actual drive. It does have a lanyard strap hole so you can attach this to a key ring. There really isn't much else to say.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: HUGE! A lot of room, comes with feet AND castors, 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch hard drive compatibility, 6 5.25 bays, cable management behind motherboard tray, many fan mounting locations, large 230MM fans
Cons: Blue LEDs, minimum 140MM fan support
Other Thoughts: I bought this case for my new PC build. I wanted the large case for water cooling. I run a 240x30mm radiator on top and a 120x30mm rad on the rear. I kept in 2 or the 3 230mm fans, one front, one side panel, and removed the top 230mm fan. This is where the 240mm rad is. I only have a couple complaints, though very minor, is there is only a couple locations for 140mm fans. This case mostly uses 120mm or the larger 230mm fans. This is not a deal breaker for me since I am only watercooling the cpu but it would of been nice to see the option for more 140mm fans.
The other thing is the hard drive cage is not removable. It is riveted to the main chassis. Again, not really a deal breaker, but this makes it impossible to install a radiator at the front of the case. I guess, if you felt creative enough, you could drill the rivets out and remove it but then you would have to use the 5.25 inch bays for hdd storage. There are no SSD storage locations on the back side of the case. This would of been nice to see but I thing that is a more recent case design.
Aside from the minor issues I had with the design, its still an awesome case. It gives you a lot of room to work with no sharp edges. I use the included wheels on the case to give it a little more height off the carpet (my PSU fan pulls from inside the case, not the bottom opening, for dust reasons) and easier to move around when I need to get into the case.
Pros: Fully modular, produces little to no heat, temp controlled fan setting, long cables, standard size, looks good
Cons: wasn't free, HA
Other Thoughts: I purchased this power supply for my new PC build. When purchasing a power supply, I was looking for a fully modular setup with a very quiet fan. This power supply has yet to turn the fan on while in "hybrid" mode (small switch on the unit for fan control). I ran some stress testing for several hours to see the limits of other hardware and the fan never came on.
The modular cabling is very convenient. Every cable is modular on this unit. I like the fact that I can unplug the cables without having to undo all the cable management in order to remove the power supply. This comes in handy when doing a full cleaning of the case.
