This review is from: ORICO Aluminum 2.5-Inch Silver USB 3.0 External Enclosure Cooling - Gray
Pros: When it works its fast and great - good near 100mb/s speeds - stylish , easy to put drives in
Cons: Has issues. Its cheap so the connector is not too great on the case for the SSUSB3 port. It commonly will just lose connection when the cable is touched or sometimes will not boot the drive and just stay on and silent. Was a slight issue when I first bought it, it not is a constant issue, cannnot use this case normally without spending time fidgeting with the cable to get t to read, then being careful not to touch it. It also does not hold the hdd inside tightly, you can hear and feel it hit the case inside back and forth.
Other Thoughts: I wish the cable design was built into the case instead of having a connector that can be damaged over time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I accidentally bought the wrong color temperature. These are very white/blue close to 6500K. Not very good for in house lights, luckily I managed to use them for some outside lights and it worked nicely. Nice value @3.50 a bulb - will last a very very very long time. Very bright, brighter than 60w incandescents in my house.
Cons: none - labelling on site could of been a little mor obvious to help me out when ordering. works like cool white or warm mean nothing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN SF2 Shark’s Fin Blade 92mm Silent Fan
Pros: Very quiet fan, the rubber mounts it comes with actually work like a charm making the fan completely silent - cant even tell when it is on.
Cons: The airflow is not that great. I bought this because I wanted to get a fan that had more flow than my old old stock fan and was silent. This did half the job. Speedfan says this thing is running at 1600 rpm so I should be getting around 34 cfm. I dont know any home method to measure cfm nor do I have equipment but this pushes out less air then my noisy 7 year old stock fan and I'm pretty sure its not at 34 cfm at all. I put my hand to the fans exhaust and I barely feel a breeze. I think everything in my pc has gone up a few degrees (32ish-36ish). it was also quite a dime compared to other fans. Looks like I might be shopping around fans for a while till I find the perfect one.
Other Thoughts: Cause it's only three pin i cant tell when/if it will run at max speed so I can see some real results. I have a small case so I was hoping this would make a great main exhaust fan. I guess this would be perfect as a fan in the computer to just move air around but i wouldn't suggest buying it as a main exhaust.
If I see serious changes in temperatures on load I will probably return this fan and look around for another one. Shame I probably wont find one as quiet as this one.
