This review is from: Compucessory CCS25004 Keyboard Tray- w-Articulating Arm- 22-.50in.x11-.75in.- Black
Pros: I was having a tough time trying to find an affordable articulating tray that would fit under the desks at my wife's office. Her and her employee have very oddly sized desks as I had to modify them to fit into the space needed, so when she decided she needed keyboard trays it was a nightmare finding something that would fit.
I picked up 2 of these for about the price of 1 3M or well-known brand, and they are both sturdy and have a very wide range of motion. Easy enough to install and have been in use for about 2 months now.
Other Thoughts: No real cons, but 2 observations. The sliding plate is offset from the center of the keyboard tray so you need to pay careful attention to how you're mounting the tray. If you want it centered on a desk, you must mount the plate off-center
Also, there is no template sheet for the hole layout, just a warning for those that aren't terribly DIY inclined.
Pros: 12 hot-swap bays for $199 (at least when I bought it), there's really no competition. Tons of space inside, includes 12 SATA cables for connecting to the drive bays and they all are long enough to stretch across the case. Fans are extremely quiet and move a decent amount of air.The drive caddies, while a little flimsy lock solidly into place in the drive bays.
Cons: Sharp edges!
Also, a minor nitpick, but I hate when the front panel cables don't follow any sort of color coding. JUST MAKE ALL THE NEGATIVE CONNECTIONS ONE COLOR. Granted, this points out that I obviously never bothered to read the manual but it seems like an obvious design choice, the less that someone has to read the manual the better.
Either way, neither of these issues are significant enough to remove a star, this case is awesome and the best deal out right now.
Other Thoughts: Special note, I ordered this using the regular Newegg 4-7 business day shipping and received it the very next day. Thanks Newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It looked pretty?
Cons: 3 years and several thousands of dollars spent at Newegg and I got my first DOA part! Sad part being it was the part from the order I was most excited about getting.
First attempt to load W7, locked up at 75% expanding files, second attempt fully installed but froze on "setting up Internet Explorer," after reboot had all sorts of errors; libraries wouldn't work, errors in IE, etc., etc...
3 more install attempts and locking up at various stages of install.
Ran some diagnostic tools, all sorts of bad sectors and errors.
My second OCZ product ever, first was a power supply that blew out around the 1 year mark and now this. Waiting on a replacement (stupidly?), not terribly confident.
