This review is from: APEVIA X-TELSTAR-JR G-Type X-TSJGT-RD Red SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Tooless design for drives is the one thing I liked about this case over others.
Two eggs - One for the tooless drive design - One for not being all black (not many options out there that are not all black)
Cons: I've worked in many cases and I'd have to say that I'd rather not work in this one ever again. (this case was not for me, but someone I built it for).
Its not red - it's hot pink (IMO).
The PWR and HD LED Cables are TOO SHORT - barely reach the bottom right of my MoBo).
The back panel is solid across the back making cable management - well - a moot point - can't do it.
The Hard drives are mounted sideways (which I was happy about) except they are backwards - the cable attachments are on the window side, not the back side - meaining I now see cables through the window.
The power and reset button are on the inside of the door.
The clips for the PCI cards are cheap, and dont really work on a vid card like evga 460. Even worse - if you choose to use the hole for the screw, they are not threaded.
Pwr LED very bright.
Display is gimmicky.
Fan control wiring is messy.
Other Thoughts: If I were to recomend a low cost red case I would pick the RAIDMAX Tornado or Perhaps the APEVIA X-DREAMER3-RD.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA PCI USB 2.0 & FireWire/1394a combo card Model SD-COMBO-02
Pros: USB ports external
USB port Internal
USB hub internal
Cons: USB internal port uses one of the USB header ports - so do not plan on using both hub hook ups if you are planning on using the internal usb port
Other Thoughts: I bought this for two reasons, it has an internal usb port for my bluetooth dongle, and a usb hub for my card reader. Fortunately, my card reader needed only one hub, because when I had it hooked to one the the Bluetooth dongle was overiding the card reader, so I moved it to the other, and now it all works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake WingRS 201 VJ60001N2Z Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Termaltake at this price! Looks nice, tooless design, ventilation. fan is very quiet.
Cons: Audio cable too short - if your ac97 hook up is on the lower left of your motherboard, it wont reach.
Tooless design is nice, but on the 5.25 drives it is only on one side making them insecure, i had to use screws on back panel side. the tooless design is a bit loose too.
Other Thoughts: This may not be a con for some, but the fan coms with the large 4-pin hook-up. not sure why these fans don't come with the mobo 3 pin hookup. this way the mobo can monitor it.READ FULL REVIEW
