This review is from: VANTEC HDA-250M 2.5" to 3.5" Mounting Kit
Pros: It's solid metal.
Cons: The screw holes are NOT STANDARD!
If you have a Lian-Li case with any type of vibration resistant mounting, DO NOT BUY THIS! It WILL NOT screw in, and you WILL NOT be able to mount it to your case.
Other Thoughts: Now I have to pay to ship this piece of junk back... which means I'll lose money because the design is stupid.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has all the features of the 012-P3-1572-AR, but also includes the high-flow bracket in the back.
Cons: NO LIFETIME WARRANTY!!!!
This is the only reason I buy eVGA and if this is a new trend, I will promptly STOP buying their products.
Buy the 012-P3-1572-AR instead. The bracket isn't worth the warranty.
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-B25F Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: High Quality materials (completely aluminum)
Purchased elsewhere and had the classic Lian-Li wheels attached at the retailer.
Very clean look after attaching the optical drive bay covers.
Cons: - Not enough room behind motherboard tray
- Not enough room for cables to pass through MB tray
- One MB stand off not properly threaded
- Front and top of the case pop off too easily
- Fan filters were warped from the factory. Negates benefits since there's no seal what-so-ever.
- expansion slot latches actually make it harder to get components into the case.
- Negative Pressure configuration promotes dust buildup inside the case.
*** The power button gets stuck underneath the bezel. Tried to tighten it, but that made it worse. I had it half tightened for a while so it still functioned. Spent MONTHS trying to get a hold of a Lian-Li tech support agent for a replacement. Later, the switch broke altogether. Finally got a hold of an agent and they sent me....... the USB/eSATA/AUDIO connections. I contacted them again and they sent the package to the wrong house. I contacted them a third time and they sent me the button caps, not the buttons!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!
Other Thoughts: I know Lian-Li is normally renowned for their high quality, but I haven't had the opportunity to enjoy it. The other problems with the case are forgivable, but this company lacks any real customer service! It's bad enough that you have to contact Taiwan (via internet explorer only), but having the wrong parts sent to you twice is just pathetic.
Also, they do not sell the power/reset buttons on their site for this case. Only the old black plastic buttons. So, unless you can convince them to send you the right part, you're pretty much out of luck.
This is the first and LAST lian-li case I will ever buy.
