Pros: Purchased a green case, but the same exact model. The temperature LCD screen is nice and bright. Had no problems installing hardware and large video cards. It's an attractive case. No issues turning the case on and off normally.
Cons: I wouldn't recommend this case. While it has a unique and cool look, it feels really cheap and flimsy. I have bought cases for under $50 that are more durable. For the price it's not worth it. You can find better quality cases for half the price. There are black metal grills on the front for airflow, both of them fell off during the first month of ownership. It looks ugly without the grills. Closing the case can be a pain too because of the flimsy material.
The LCD screen worked occasionally. Sometimes I would turn the computer on and it wouldn't power the LCD screen. Randomly it would turn on and off. I'm not sure why. The temperature seemed accurate at least when it did work.
The handle that you use to carry it around feels very cheap. It gets stuck in the outward position often and felt like it's about to snap off since I've owned it. It hasn't broken, but I can't say that the handle feels reliable at all. I'm always waiting for it to break and expecting the PC to fall on my foot or something.
I can't justify the price at all.
Other Thoughts: Again, it's not a bad case. It looks good and there is some space to work in it. I wanted something different, and something that I can carry. This was my first cube case, and if you buy a case like this you have to expect that certain things will be different.
While I do like how it looks, it looks like swiss cheese when the black grills fell off because the metal has multiple holes behind he grills. I tried putting them back on but they kept falling off.
This review is from: StarTech.com 1ft Low Profile Latching SATA to eSATA Plate Adapter (ESATAPLT1LPL)
Pros: It is a SATA to eSATA connector. It does what it's supposed to. No software or drivers necessary. Just plug it in.
Other Thoughts: It is a Low Profile plate. This means that it is only going to fit slimline PCs like my Dell Optiplex 780. The plate on this device is meant for a much smaller I/O panel than ATX. If you have a standard ATX case, or Micro ATX, or even ITX, then you do not want to buy this. This fits slimline PCs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I upgraded to this card from a EVGA Superclocked 460 and the difference is awesome. I'm able to max out graphics in every game I play with no issues. Graphics are smooth, and games are quick and responsive with no lag.
Cons: It's a big card, but it fits great in my full tower :)
Other Thoughts: I have owned this video card for more than a year, and paid well over $300 for it. This is a great buy, and I would reccommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade.READ FULL REVIEW
