Fractal Design Define R5 FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK Black Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Fractal Design Define R5 06/06/2015

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R5 FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK Black Computer Case

Pros: This is an excellent case. Plenty of room, great cable management, and lots of bays for storage.

It's also very customizable. And its by far the quietest case I've ever owned.

Cons: It wasn't free?

For some this can be a little too large, but from what I understand they carry a smaller version.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this case will last a good many years (around 10+). This is a much better case all around compared to the R4.

Seagate 600 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I used this drive to replace my HDD in my MacBook Pro. It fit perfectly and was an easy install. Purchased it on Black Friday for a discounted price too. Plus my OS is extremely quick now.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews mention that the size they see is not actually 240 GB. That's to be expected, as you lose some space due to the filesystem formatting. On my MacBook, I'm getting 238.86 GB capacity. Windows 7 / 8 may get a little less. Linux - either way.

Also, don't boot this thing from a USB port. Why would you even bother to get an SSD if you boot it through USB? That immediately bottlenecks the connection. Even USB 3.0 will drop it from its SATA 6.0 GB/ps to 5 GB/ps (optimistically). It will probably drop it down to 4 or 3 GB/ps just for connecting it to a SATA -> USB connector. Plug it into the motherboard and use it as an internal drive. Sheesh.

Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A Rigid aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's a sturdy external enclosure that can take a few drops. And yes, it fits a 2.5" drive snugly. If a review says "AAAHHH it doesn't fit!!!" they probably ordered the wrong size. Or forgot to take the anchor screws out of the sides of the HDD.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For some reason it has 2 USB ports. I'm not sure if they're strictly necessary for added power consumption... it works fine with only one port plugged in...
