This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-525 3.5" Drive/Device Transfer Bracket For 5.25" Drive Bay (Black)
Pros: Includes screws to secure your small drive into place in the large bay. I'm not too worried about my internal media card reader slicing around thanks to these.
Decent piece of black plastic, nothing more or less, except for the con...
Cons: It's just a hair too short from side to side for my bay (Corsair 300R case), so there's a tiny gap on the left side about half a millimeter wide. A more enterprising fellow might break out the epoxy or mount it in such a way to spread the gap across both sides, but I'm not going to spend that much time on a sub-10 dollar situation.
Other Thoughts: Does the job decently, doesn't look incredible but looks way better than a drive flopping (get it?) around in that large bay.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Used this case for my new build and I'm LOVING it. The design is gorgeous, the build quality is excellent, and it runs frosty cool with 4 fans placed on the mesh grill (grill is included, fans are cheap!)
Cons: Docked an egg because my fan controller doesn't work (common issue on these) and the top dust shield they show in the video didn't come with my case.
Other Thoughts: This case seems pretty big for a mid tower. If space is a concern you may want to look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was scared about buying this card based on the reviews, and sure enough I was having some crashes on my old XP install. After I upgraded to Windows 7, these problems completely disappeared, leaving me to run Left 4 Dead 2 in full settings (on a 19" LCD 1280x1024) with no hiccups.
Cons: Part of me worries about how useful 1gB is on a 128-bit card, but my lack of technical smarts prevents me from saying for sure. More importantly, this card meets and exceeds my needs for the way I use my computer (occasional gamer, don't need to spend 200+ on a gfx card).
Other Thoughts: Get this card for a bargain if you're running Windows 7: you'll be DX11 ready and have a quick card at a good price. Watch out for that drivers disk (get them online!), and enjoy getting what you paid for and then some.READ FULL REVIEW
