Pros: Beautiful aesthetics, blends well with the rest of my a/v equipment in my living room.
there's plenty of space for my ATX MB, a SSD 260gb hd, and over 16TB with still a few bays felt for some more HD's.
No Video cards yet, but I think I can add one if I need to, the stock fans are good, but not great. They're a little noisy for my taste . So spend on after market fans if you're looking for quieter dB's
No IR receiver to turn on and off the unit, I've seen mods done to the case. I leave the unit turn on 24/7 for updates, etc. I use a HP IR remote t navigate Plex, and XBMC but it's limited to some commands!
Cons: My biggest beef with this case is with the freaking optical flaps, and the Achilles heels of this almost prefect case.
You have to be a magician to get the optical drive to aligned correctly with the slot! Even after that there's some sort of comparability issues Optical drive brand and flap! Others have no issues with their optical drives, while allot of us just can't seem to get it to work!
Here where lack of faith from customer service comes in.
I'm the customer, and if I'm saying and reporting there's a front flap issue going you should take my world for it, I don't want extra parts, I just want my issue fix.
I email CS, and it seem they were going to oblige with my request, and get my broken flap fix on my own. They just seize to communicate with me!
They said they were going to send me mailing information but that was left up in the air!
In my book that's a big no no. I use to guide the optical tray while lowering the flap so that disturbing Crunch, KLUNK won't destroy the flap door.
Well it took way too many knocks, now the door just lays lifeless, taking away from the beauty of the case.
I get lots of question here on Newegg, and AVS forum about the case, and I always tell them to look else were.
The main reason I'm giving it two Eggs is the lack of response from CS which is a real shame.
Other Thoughts: C'mon Silver stone lets fix this minor issue, it will pay ten folds in the long run, and have your CS people follow through their promise.
Also we buy this case to integrate it with the rest of our AV gear, why not make it more Home Theater friendly, no? Make a remote, or a dongle to operate the case! Too much sense???
This review is from: APEVIA CVT425 4-Pin Molex to 2 SATA Cable
Pros: The molex end works as it should, but....
Cons: These things look cheap, and by cheap I mean the Sata side (wires) aren't stable enough to connect to female side.
They just move, and it's difficult to joined them together, I purchased 3 of these and one did worked, but slightly snugged connection it never snapped in.
Other Thoughts: I should have gone with the moe expensive type made by SilverStone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RDCR-11002 All-in-one USB 3.0 Card Reader
Pros: Well if it works, then is a pro!
Cons: Where do I begin, I purchased a new laptop, I wanted to use this card reader just to avoid duplicating photos, which tends to happen to me in the pass.I wanted the pictures in the sd card not from my laptop's hard drive, I had the card reader laying around which I had never used since purchased. First thing I notice how difficult it is to just enter the sd card into the slots, I made 3 reads into my laptop without any issues. I never imagine what happened next the the pins inside damage the sd card. I look at the reader and sure enough, bend pins..I wasn't too worry about it, what ever right? I tried to use the my Canon D30 camera direct with usb wire to transfer to the laptop and it said on my camera damage files/ can not find files something to those words..My jaw was on the floor, I have pics here of my toddler daughter during the summer, just too many great memories to just toss away in this fashion! The freaking pins must have damage the sd card, and their is no way I can get those photos ever again.
Other Thoughts: I'm so frustrate with things that just do not work, on earth can something that appears so simple do so much damage!
