This review is from: SEgoN Power-X USB 2.0 Flash Drive 32GB (Black)
Pros: It was cheap
Cons: Stopped working after 3 months
Transfer speeds were never that great even when it was working
Other Thoughts: In the process of transferring files it failed and said they couldn't be copied because the drive was write protected. Strangely enough I was transferring about a dozen files at the time. The first 5 copied without issue and then it spontaneously switched to write protected mid transfer. I didn't change any settings and there is no lock/unlock switch on this thing. Seems corrupted. I've tried changing attributes from the cmd line, editing properties in computer management, reformatting, and even adding a storagedevicepolicies key in the registry. Nothing I do removes the write protection on this thing. I think it's toast after a mere 3 months. I bought this thing despite the mixed reviews and now I regret it ...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got it for $50 with $50 in rebates
Fan filters in the front and bottom of the case
Decent cable management.
I/O USB 3.0 header comes with a USB 2.0 adaptor
Looks pretty decent after my mods :)
Cons: Poorly designed.
Front fan comes connected directly to the bezel which is strange though it can be moved onto the case itself.
Adding an extra intake fan in the front blocks the external 3.5" bay even though there are connection points for the fan there so you have to choose which one you want.
Toolless adapters don't fit on the removable GPU plate even though there are holes there for them.
I/O panel has a SD card slot even though it isn't supported by the case.
Only comes with 2 fans though I was able to get 6 in there after modding.
There is VERY little room at the top of the case. I managed to add a blowhole fan to it but I had to saw off the corners of the fan so that it wouldn't touch the mobo.
Not very roomy in general. I got decent cable management and everything to fit but it took some finagling.
Other Thoughts: While I found this case to be pretty shoddily designed I got it for free due to Newegg being awesome. SO, can't really complain. Also, since I got it for free I decided to try my hand at modding. It was FUN!
I managed to get 6 fans in the case, but stock it only supports 4. There are connections in the front for a 4th fan that for some reason no website mentions, not even the Diablotek site. I would guess this is because if you choose to put a fan there it prevents you from using the external 3.5" drive bay. I don't need it, so it was nice to have 2 intake fans in the front. The front bezel is also a giant filter so that is nice. The fan filters on the bottom are for the PSU and the optional bottom fan. They remove easily and are pretty convenient.
Would probably have rated it 3 eggs if I paid full price for it.
Pros: 10 months with great internet speeds
Doesn't bottleneck my bandwidth
Didn't have any installation issues
Cons: Kind of big. Tends to keep me from using the adjacent USB port. Not a big deal though. Still a worthy purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
