LG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal 12X Blu-ray Combo Drive Model UH12NS29
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fairly fast 12X BD-ROM

Cons: OEM = no software period. Call me silly, but I thought the expensive Drive ($69 on sale back then) would at least include a link to Blu-ray player software. It does not. It will read Blu-Ray data disks, but it will not play Blu-ray movies unless you spend another $50+ on software.

Other Thoughts: It is an OEM drive after all, but what good is it? CyberLink PowerDVD 13 Ultra costs $79!!! Yikes!

Cirago USB 3.0/SATA II Dual Hard Drive Docking Station with One Touch Cloning CDD3000
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs It's a nice idea, but.... 12/04/2013

This review is from: Cirago USB 3.0/SATA II Dual Hard Drive Docking Station with One Touch Cloning CDD3000

Pros: USB 3.0 should offer high transfer rates

Cons: Not durable...

Other Thoughts: I didn't abuse the unit. I barely used it. I had to wait several months to use it (I had to order a USB 3.0 card first). When I did the cloning function worked great the first time. After that the unit had trouble recognizing both drives. After that it corrupted both drives when cloning- cloned corruption is not what I had in mind.... sheesh.

NZXT Source 210 S210-002 White w/Black Front Trim “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's cheap! It's fairly well laid out. There are plenty of places for cooling fans (eight total- two on the top, front and bottom of the case plus one one the side cover) plus the large rear fan that comes installed.

The power supply mounts on the bottom so the c/g is low- I like that but it may be an issue. There are 8 3.5" internal hard drive bays and three external 5.25" bays.

The case is fairly light, and the internal metal edges are smooth (so not cuts!). It even comes with a manual of sorts. It seems well laid out will have plenty of ventilation. The front I/O ports and audio are nice features in a case at this price point.

Cons: It's cheap! There's a reason I guess. The case screw that holds the cover on was stripped. I had to unscrew while pulling very hard with pliers to get it out. I won't be reinstalling that one. The manual does not explain that the included case fan has a multi-headed power plug so that you can pull power from the MB or a Molex plug.
The case saves weight by having very thin sheet metal- it's not especially flimsy but the screws will strip easily. Be careful. You will need power supply cable exstenders if your leads are short to reach the bottom-mounted PS.

Other Thoughts: Free Shipping to the rescue! The powersupply mounts on the bottom, so if your PS cables are short you'll need externders.
The case is still a great value especially with free shipping. The Antec case I wanted had $10 shipping, so if you think of this as a $20 case it's a huge bargain.
