Pros: High quality construction.
Screwless drive rails and PCI.
Looks great, has a window.
BRIGHT BLUE LEDS!
Very complete front IO Module.
Very quiet stock case fans.
Very quiet Power Supply.
CM provides excellent customer service.
Cons: No removable motherboard tray.
Included power supply is weak at 380W.
Screwless drive rails seem fragile.
Location of IO module at the bottom of the case makes it easy for accidental breaking of attached peripherals.
Other Thoughts: This case has a few flaws, but in general it is great for long term use. I have a 7800GT and Athlon X2, so the 380W PSU wasn't gonna work, but I took it out and put it in my older comp and the PSU is near silent. The placement of IO Connector at the bottom of the case with the plugs perpendicular to the case and parallel to the ground is dangerous because if you placed this case on the floor, you could accidentally step on watever plug you have plugged into the module and snap the connector. Thats what I did unfortunately, but the CM customer support was great. I went to their website and sent them a service inquiry, to which they promptly responded to and sent me a replacement module. The first module was an incorrect model, but I contacted them again and they mailed me the correct one no questions asked. Overall, this is a great choice for a case, and if you don't need the window, the windowless case is an excellent value.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Best performing GPU available (or unavailable as vapourware) today.
Cons: Worst value for any graphics card available today.
Other Thoughts: A 5 rating for the excellent graphics performance. But honestly, if you're willing to pay this much for a video card, either go spend the money on something more useful or wait for nVidia's G71 or ATi's R580 based video cards.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC ME-7050U2F Plastic 3.5" IDE USB & 1394 White External Enclosure
Other Thoughts: Very nice enclosure. Includes antishock rubber attachments for hard drive. Paired with a Western Digital Caviar 160GB drive. Set drive jumpers to slave and it works perfectly on both firewire and usb. Looks nice too with the front blue led and highly polished white panels. However, Linux users be ware. There have been ppl online describing problems with using a Prolific PL3507 chip based enclosure with the latest 2.6 kernel.READ FULL REVIEW
