This review is from: New Molding 5.25" Storage Box
Pros: I came across this by accident and when I saw it I *knew* I needed it!
I always have a bunch of small stuff always laying around near my desktop (flash pens, memory cards, batteries, sticky notes... you name it), and I was able to put it all in one of these. It mounts easily and on a black case like mine it's completely discreet, you can't tell it's a drawer, it just looks like a regular 5.25'' slot cover.
Cons: I'm trying to be gently with it because the whole thing is plastic. I can foresee the push-click opening and closing wear out easily or break if mishandled.
Other Thoughts: It would be nice if this was sturdier, possibly made of metal instead of plastic, but I'm pretty impressed by it as it is.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought two of these to power my two ICY DOCK MB998SP-B hard drive cages and it worked perfectly.
I have a modular PSU so the least cables I use the better. This way I can use just one cable and this splitter and power 8 SSD's in icy dock cage.
Cons: This is not a con to this splitter, I guess it's to the icy dock cage, but the cage has the data power adapters in opposite directions so the cable had to twist in order to plug both ends. I don't think any other cable is prepared for this, it may be just an oddity of the icy dock cage itself.
Other Thoughts: I'm pretty satisfied with it and would recommend it to anyone needing. Less cables means better airflow inside the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Back in 2012 when I purchased it, it was the difference between night and day compared to my old 80Gb hdd. Incredibly fast and smooth at any tasks, load times almost instantaneous, Windows boot up time count reduced from minutes to seconds.
And 5 year warranty!
Cons: One day I turn on the laptop and see the message "No boot device found". Take out the SSD and plug it to 2 other computers but neither even recognizes it. Controller apparently died, no way to even try to backup information from it. No slow downs, or blue screens, or any kind of apparent signs that something was wrong... it worked great and fast every day until the next day it just died.
Good thing it was just an older laptop for light browsing and little more, with no critical information on it.
Other Thoughts: OCZ has gone belly up several years ago but thankfully the parent company (Toshiba) seems to honor the warranties of the SSDs. I have an open case with tech support for an RMA. I'm guessing by now there is no Vertex 4 replacements laying around in their warehouses anymore so I'm looking forward to see what will I get in return.READ FULL REVIEW
