This review is from: SIIG SC-SA0D12-S1 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA II USB 3.0 Drive Docking with Fan
Pros: Good dock. Fan Blows well although I have a desktop fan augmenting this (replaced a USB2 Dock). Getting about 70MB/sec backup on a 2.5Ghz AMD 9850 to external 1.5 TB seagate drives (for backup). This is about the same speed I would get with eSATA but now I can yank the drives out. The eSATA chipset I have never allowed it. Backup times reduced to 1/3. Thumbs up!
Cons: Are we faster than Firewire 800 yet? Although sarcastic, this stuff should have been settled years ago.
Other Thoughts: Matched with an internal SIIG PCI USB 3 card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Where to start...
o Black, inside and out. No need to disassemble and paint the inside. Equipment looks great by default.
o Paint is better than most give it credit for. I've struck it several times and simply wipped it down afterward.
o Well constructed.
o It is NOT heavy for a tower.
o Air Circulation, and 5 user controls for speed at that.
o Dropped my Quad Core CPU 7 degrees from 52 to 45 o Dropped my hard drives 20 degrees from 45 to 25.(was primary reason of purchase)
o Clean. The filters work well and the parts inside aren't collecting dust like my previous case. Compared to HAF 932, this was nice selling point.
o Neweggs price (and delivery) made it half the price of my Lian-Li.
o It looks nice (without being to flashy).
Cons: Nothing that is a show stopper. Things you will see consistantly listed:
o Need a little more depth behind the motherboard/ opposite side of case for cable management.
o Depth of case could use a couple of inches for long video cards up to where drives stick out from the bays (about 3 inches of clearance though)
o Some work on the bays to allow access without the thumbscrews.
Other Thoughts: Frankly, this was smaller than I expected. Yes, most folks have compared this to the desktop 900 but as a tower it is quite compact. Each 3 drive bay being given a fan really works well to keep HD temps down. Took one evening to move components over.READ FULL REVIEW
