This review is from: LIAN LI PC-TU200B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: Relatively small, transportable, full-sized P/S. Pretty nice fit/finish.
Cons: FAR larger than necessary. Who needs a full-sized on-board optical drive?!? Roughly HALF the interior space of the box is wasted. Should be re-engineered.
Other Thoughts: I take this on trips. There's so much empty space with this case, even when fully-built, I actually ball-up underwear and t-shirts and STORE THEM INSIDE THE CASE. Makes me nuts that no vendor will build a "smallest possible" mini-itx/full-sized P/S case. Why, WHY W H Y NOT ?!?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Icon Light RG101A Rogue 1 Black Alluminum Flashlight 50 Lumen
Pros: Nice aluminum, decent illumination, 1 AA, water-resistant
Cons: Company apparently out-of-business (as of 6/13, no website). Cannot stand on end, switch completely unprotected (accidental "on" in your bag). Switch broke fairly quickly, so now flashlight is useless.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, esp. with rebate.
Cons: CrystalDiskMark reports sequential read at 187, write at 70. This, compared to my very well-worn Crucial C300, which reports 222 reads, and 75 writes.
Other Thoughts: SSD write throughput stinks. When will these bozos start RAIDing within the controller? That is, rather than RAIDing multiple of these drives together via a controller card to get a decent data rate, why isn't the data stream split by the on-disk controller (and distributed in parallel among on-board memory)?READ FULL REVIEW
