Pros: I've purchased 7 of these when they were on sale for ~$13 which is a sick deal. It looks like they are $36 now which is way too high.
One is used in my car with a 120gb SSD formatted to fat32 and holds around 60gb of music, works great.
The others are used with 500gb win PE bootable drives at work for imaging and various other items. I've had several external enclosures for this and these are my favorite. The cable is built in, won't snag and you won't lose it. It's one less thing to go searching around in the bottom of a bag for.
All my co-workers like them and all have performed perfectly at usb 3.0 speeds just like every other usb 3.0 enclosure I have.
Cons: The price? I got them cheap, but at $36 that's just crazy. The enclosure has tiny screws and it would be nice to see a tool less design, but it's not worth taking an egg away.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great PSU, especially when it can be found on sale w/ rebate.
Has been running non-stop 24/7 for months pulling ~1150 watts from the wall (measured with kill-a-watt. HardOCP "torture test" was to run it at 1113 at the wall for 8 hrs...)
Cons: Gets hot on the back. Exhaust doesn't feel hot though. Not taking an egg as I know pulling that much power all the time makes heat, just a fact.
Other Thoughts: Don't know what guy below is talking about with the multiple rails. HardOCP says nothing of the sort and loads the 12v rail with 100 amps for their testing. Look it up.
Maybe he has dual xeons or something. I don't know how there's 1100 watts pulled from the wall with SLI 680's. Maybe because it's a lie?
I have 670 SLI, OC to max stable clocks, i7 4.7 ghz and topped out stress test pulls well under 700 at the wall. And this is with a XFX SILVER rated PSU so the wattage at the wall is higher than this seasonic.
Not sure what his agenda is, bad PSU's get shipped every once in a while, it could have happened.
Pros: Meets standards, provides power like it's supposed to.
Cons: Non-standard power plug (why???)
Dedicated fan cables are a nice idea, but have no power. A single 80mm 3500rpm fan (rather fast I know) will make the psu shut off after a little bit. I imagine even a couple slower fans would do the same. So they are kinda pointless.
Expensive for what you get. Look around and better can be had for less.
