This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Pros: Excellent build quality. Solid construction. Good cable management features.
Large number of drives given the size of the case. drive trays very easy to use.
Alot of space for power supplies with modular cables.
silent fans included.
Cons: No 2.5" external bay for media readers.
Other Thoughts: My first Fractal Design case - quite a step up from my 6 year old Lian Li case which was 2-3x more money!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: like the idea of having 2 drives that are easily accessible.
multiple high speed interfaces for a low price.
Cons: no way to turn off or dim lights. gets annoying when computing in the dark.
had issues when 2 drives were attached and ejecting 1 drive caused the other drive to eject improperly.
clunky, very bulky.
Pros: Good board layout design. headers to connect items to case are clearly labeled and easy to understand. HDMI audio works very well (compared to a Radeon 4850 GPU HDMI audio which was very buggy).
Back to BIOS button very handy since the thing boots up so fast. It's a physical switch on the back that once toggled makes the motherboard go straight into BIOS without user intervention.
Cons: pricey, no firewire800 or thunderbolt for this price - really?
4xSATA 6gbps slots + 3 SATA 3gbps slots. Would want all SATA 6gbps.
Other Thoughts: I'm running an Intel Core i3-3225, 8GB regular RAM, Intel 330 SSD and this thing boots so quickly with the quickboot options that the BIOS screens do no appear, the WIndows 7 swirl doesn't even complete and i'm in my desktop.READ FULL REVIEW
