HooToo HT-UH006 Compact SuperSpeed USB 3.0 7-Port Hub w/ Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 5V/3A Power Adapter, USB 3.0 Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sturdy construction, power adapter makes running multiple external 2.5" HDDs possible, plenty of ports. Nice long cable.

Cons: The blue LEDs that light up when a port is in use is kind of nice, but they don't have to be so bloody bright! On the other hand, I suppose they make a nice night light.

Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Spacious for a mini-ITX box (while still being reasonably compact). Bought it for its ability to hold 3 3.5" drives, which it does nicely, with the bonus ability for two of the bays to hold a 2.5" drive in addition to the 3.5", which was exactly what I was after. The steel frame is nice and sturdy, and cable management is eased by plenty of little metal loops around the edges to secure wads of cables with twisty-ties or zip ties. Accepts a full-size ATX power supply.

Plenty of fans in case you wanted to fill it with roasty components.

USB 3.0 port on the front is nice.

Cons: It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out that to get the 5.25" bay cover off, the entire front panel of the case has to come off first. Would have liked the front fan to have a 3 or 4 pin PWM connector so that the motherboard could control its RPM.

Other Thoughts: It's not the smallest "shoebox" computer case, but its extra bulk means I can cram more stuff in it.

SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

5 out of 5 eggs Affordable and fast 03/22/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Well, it's fast ENOUGH. I don't have it connected to any components that could saturate either the SATA bus on one end or the PCIe bus on the other. It's in a WHS2011 box with two WD RED 3TB drives attached to it, in a mirrored setup (in software, via Windows). Sequential reads and writes to the WHS box are bottlenecked by my gigabit Ethernet; ~105 MBps. Setup in Windows Home Server 2011 involved simply inserting the card and turning the machine on. The SATA connectors felt like they got a secure grip on the cables, too, which is nice.

Cons: None, basically. I wish it had four ports, though. Or eight, as long as I'm dreaming.
