Pros: Standard HDD. Storage up to 3TB. Came in an anti-static bag wrapped up in bubble.
Cons: As the title says, it was dead on arrival. TShot for an hour and decided a 0TB read from all my machines meant it was dead. I am going to give this a single egg since reliability of high-capacity storage disk is vital.
Other Thoughts: I was about to move 1TB of family pictures/videos to this baby... now I can't make up my mind... where are the reliable performance drives at these days? And paying for shipping again stinks.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Small, compact, black, included PS, cheap price, included MOBO riser pad so no standoffs are needed.
Cons: No instructions/manuals. I've built many computers but this one took me forever since I didn't really understand it's layout. There seems to be ZERO diagrams/layouts for this case. At least, I never received any and couldn't find any on the manufacturer's web site... MOBO holes were too big for the screws that I think we are supposed to use.
Wait, what screw goes where? Does anybody know? I got a big bag of screws and I just had to guess which went where. I used the sharp screws to mount the HD brackets to the side and used the small, fine-threaded screws for the MOBO mounting as someone pointed out in a YT video. However, one screw hole came pre-stripped, meaning I had to find a LARGER screw to firm that corner of the MOBO down since the small screws just fell flush without any force...
When demounting the MOBO, a second corner became stripped somehow. I'm very careful with electronics so this was very confusing.
Lastly, don't buy this unless you absolutely can't afford a different ITX case. This one is CHEAP but is definitely NOT a steal.
Pros: Quiet and fast.
Cons: Not a hybrid SSD but has 64MB Cache and was CHEAPREAD FULL REVIEW
