This review is from: Rosewill RHB-330 7 Ports USB 2.0 Hub with Power Adapter
Pros: Seems to work well with 4 usb asicminers and a usb fan, or 5 asicminers. No problems so far. About 1.5% HW error rate, which I think is normal. The magnets on the bottom are a nice touch and useful, but they are a little weak.
Cons: Two of the ports on this "7 port" hub are not powered.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nanoxia NXDS1B Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The quality is high for the cost. The mounting options, especially for water cooling, are excellent. The built-in fan controller (two channels, three 3-pin fans on each channel) is very useful. Without a side fan, the case is very, very quiet. The chimney is a nice touch. The front split panels are attractive and functional. The flip out fans in the front are even cooler (no pun intended) than they sound in the description. Hard drive mounting options are very food and very flexible. See the timetolivecustoms video on youtube for a very good review. He really does a great job describing the good and bad of this case. I am extremely happy with the case, especially for the cost.
Cons: Pop-up USB panel is not great - it doesn't work as expected - it's pretty terrible really. It pops up less than 40% on my case, and it is not easy to push down to activate - i.e. it's so difficult to activate that I think I will eventually break something. This needs to be addressed in their manufacturing process.
The case also includes a lot of extra screws for a "typical" build, but only four black fan mounting screws are included. Given that it's a black side panel, and black screws get all munched up after a few fan removals and reinstalls, I'd like to see a few more of these black fan screws in the kit...and it can't really cost much to include maybe four more of these fan screws.
Other Thoughts: Even with the semi-fail USB pop-up panel, I'd buy it again. I'm very happy with it. I would definitely recommend this case if silence is important.READ FULL REVIEW
Mounts to the back of the monitor
Cons: Noisier than expected, but not too bad.
No room for expansion (duh!)
Can't play demanding video games
Other Thoughts: This little thing has surprised me. I'm using 2GB memory and a Vertex SSD in it. I've successfully installed numerous versions of Linux and only debian gave me any trouble (unidentified NIC). Windows 7 is surprisingly snappy! Like others have posted here in their it does have the Crystal HD chip (well...the drivers installed...). I haven't tried any Hulu or Netflix streaming, but streaming from a local university works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
