This review is from: Rosewill RCW-608 USB2.0 Adapter For IDE/SATA Device (Include Protection case)
Pros: I'm a tech and I basically wore out my first one. I used it 100's of times. It was always fairly consistent provided the drive you're using isn't completely shot. Has made me the hero recovering users data countless times. I finally made one mistake though. I left the SATA cable connected and put it back in my LT bad and it broke the connector. I can still use it for IDE but who has IDE any more... So I'm here to buy another one. The reviewer who complained about frying a HD by using a longer SATA cable doesn't know what he's doing.. Smoke was a product of doing something wrong or bad cable. Not the adaptor.
Cons: SATA cable could be longer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: FirePower Fatal1ty 550W 80Plus Semi-Modular Gaming Power Supply 550FTY
Pros: Removable drive and PCI-E power cables. I really like this feature... With the instant savings and the rebate it's another Eggcelent deal...
Cons: If I have to find a con it's that the CPU power connectors aren't removable as well. Depending on your CPU (AMD or Intel) you'll end up with one extra cable.
Other Thoughts: This is the second OCZ Power supply I've purchased. The first one had a rebate as well. They give you a Visa gift card for the rebate. Not as easy as a check but it came in a timely manner and the liqour store accepted it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Price is the biggest pro here. Why pay $90 or $100 for a case when this one works just fine. Looks good, quiet fans and the Tool-Less drive bays work great.. Oh and lets not forget the Audio, 4 USB and ESATA ports on the front. All I can say is wow only $40... An EGGCELENT Deal for sure...
Cons: The power connectors on the fans are incompatible with my Gigabyte MB but they give you pass trough adaptors for the old style HD/CD power cables. Had a little trouble getting the power supply screws to line up but only cost me a couple minutes hardly worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: In less than two hours I had the system put together and powered on. Only thing left to do is cable management to make it look nice inside...READ FULL REVIEW
