This review is from: Rosewill RX35-AT-IU SLV Aluminum 3.5" Silver USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Easy to swap drives, fast transfer speeds for IDE/USB 2.0. Got it for $14.99, which I think is a steal for a Rosewill. Silver color and shape matches my Rosewill eSata enclosures pretty well :)
Cons: No fan. Not usually a big deal but the case is warm to the touch, making me wonder how hot the actual drive is inside. Instruction manual is very uninformative as well, leaving out critical information when dealing with IDE drives.
Other Thoughts: NOTE: When installing drive, make sure jumper pin settings are set to MASTER, not slave like most enclosures.
^This was left out of the instruction manual and caused me to have to remove the drive for a second time :/ I swear by Rosewill products but I believe I will find a fan cooled equivalent soon.
Pros: Scores very well on Prime95 and other benchmark utilities. The 1866Mhz speed makes games and other applications run MUCH faster. Looks nice and matches my red and white color scheme :) Running cool and strong so far!
Other Thoughts: LOVE G. Skill products and as an experienced PC technician, would recommend their memory to anyone!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS480E12 480W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Wires are nice and long, reason I had to purchase when switching cases. Delivers plenty of power for everyday computing or light gaming. 120mm fan was a plus, moves alot of air. Price was definitely right, especially for Logisys!
Cons: I decided not to knock an egg off for this, simply because of how cheap the unit is.... but I would have been happier if they threw some loom on the wires. At least on the main, makes for a sloppy, stock looking install.
Other Thoughts: Powers a Phenom II quad core, 2 SATA drives, 6, 120mm fans and a 8800GT GPU with no problem. Large fan keeps unit cool plus moves air through my case. The +12v rail is strong and unless you're using a high end GPU or multiple GPU's, this is plenty.READ FULL REVIEW
