This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - Full Version (32 & 64-bit) / USB Flash Drive
Pros: I installed this on a new build using recovered parts from a broken computer and a new motherboard AS Rock Z75 Pro3 and a new Samsung SSD 850 EVO. Of all the windows this was the fastest and cleanest install I have had. It appears to have installed all the drivers and chipset software, so I didn't need the manufacturers disk (which is 2012). Everything works and now all I need to do is customize it and bring in programs and data.
Cons: I had trouble getting the bios to boot from the thumb drive. The thumb drive is blue, so I thought it was USB 3. Tried two times to boot on USB 3 with no luck. After pondering for a while, I pulled out the mouse (the only USB 2 on this build had the keyboard and mouse) and retried. Ran like a champ.
Other Thoughts: Why is the thumb drive blue? Oh I get it the blue guys. It would have been nice if there were tools on the thumb drive to create a bootable DVD for anyone who has a bios that will not boot from a USB.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: A nice bag of screws.
Cons: Its plastic, but metal would conduct heat better. It doesn't fit the SSD. Tighten up the screws and the tray flexes. None of the holes lined up with the screw holes in my case. Fortunately, I had a backup in my parts box and could finish the install.
Other Thoughts: It arrived a day earlier than expectedREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec NSK4100 Black SGCC steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Nice price for a back-up computer build. Plenty of space inside for cables and a large video board. You have plenty of slots for moving the internal 3.5" drives around to clear video boards. I was happy to see the front panel connectors were long enough to go behind the panel that the motherboard mounts on and come out lower with enough cable to reach the headers.
Cons: No manual - There is a half page diagram with features. When you go to the web site you find there is no PDF manual for this case. I downloaded other manuals with similar configurations and used them (NSK3480, NSK4482).
Other Thoughts: Box was damaged and back of the right side panel had a ding and paint was flaked off. I don't know if this was a shipping, warehousing, or manufacture problem.READ FULL REVIEW
