Thermaltake Armor Reve Gene VO800M6W2N Black / White SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pleasurable layout.
Semi-tool-less design.
Cable pass-through (and management was easy)
ample space for Large Video Cards, aftermarket heat syncs, essentially anything that you might find in a high end gaming PC.
Feet on the bottom allow wonderful air cooling.
Lint filter is easy to access.
huge, quiet, included fans. (I cannot hear the fans when computer is turned on)
Fan mount is huge (both as a pro, and in sheer size)

Cons: Did not assemble the computer itself.
Blue Light on front is not programmable (that would be sweet).

Msata Mini Pci-e sata to 1.8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fits the mSATA SSD I bought
Instal was easy.
HDD screws were included.
Fits in the IDE slot with minimal hassle.

Cons: Not a true IDE emulation.
Warning about drive on boot.
Inability fhasselor operating system(s) to detect drive, or format drive when detected.
Doesn't actually work.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for I assume. But this item does not work as I was expecting. Looking to replace the aging HDD in my x41 this nifty (and ingenious) device popped up in my search. As I was planing on buying a mSATA SSD for my desktop, buying two just made sense, plus all the perks of SSD would have been amazing.

Except the adapter does not work. I booted into seven or eight different Linux distributions and every one failed at attempting to format the drive. Logs indicated inability for the kernal to fully initialize the drive. I tried seperate architectures, pulling the adapter and connecting it to a (low voltage) IDE to USB converter. Nothing works.

Upon further research I am not even finding this device on newegg anymore, had to go into my order history just to leave this review.

I would recommend finding another solution for your conversion needs.

Avatar Desktop PC LinuxPC U Celeron 1007U (1.50 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics Ubuntu 12.10
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This small beast is nothing to shirk at. I love seeing Linux bundled with it with full knowledge that I am not paying anything extra for Windows.

I bought this computer for my father to replace his very old ubuntu box. and it will suit him for a home PC perfectly.

Cons: Nowhere in the packaging is the default password for the Administrator account, nor is there anywhere on the website for support in this matter.

But I knew that I would be on my own either way, so only a minor con.

Other Thoughts: I actually don't mind that I will have to put my own Linux flavor on this little guy, it will allow full customization for the intended end user.
