This review is from: SilenX IXP-54-14T 80mm Case Fan
Pros: Excellent chassis fan. Whisper quiet.
Other Thoughts: Those who said that the fan needs "help" to start running are missing the point. These fans have a thermostat sensor that will sping the fan up when needed. If the fan isn't spinning immediately, well, that just means that the temperature isn't at a level where it needs to be running. Smart feature.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, fits on a desk (as opposed to under it wher all sorts of dust and debris collect inside it).
Cons: The included chassis fan is garbage. It's extremely noisy and the bearings on them failed in 2 out of 5 cases within a month.
Other Thoughts: By all means, get this case, the footprint is sweet but add $10 to your order and include one of these:
I replaced all the chassis fans on my cases with these and now it's whisper quiet.
Pros: Awesome price for the storage size. Great read/write speed for a non SSD. Quiet operation.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Bought one of these puppies to increase the storage space on my DirecTV DVR (HR21/700). Cloned the original internal drive from the DVR (a 320Gb WD drive) using Acronis True Image HD. Works like a charm and increased my DVR capacity about 400%.
Please note that if you don't own your DirecTV DVR outright like I do, you are most likely voiding your warranty on the box.
