This review is from: VANTEC CB-ISA100-U3 SATA / IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter
Pros: Worked perfectly on 2.5" laptop drive, 3.5" SATA drive and 3.5" IDE drive.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I've had these drives from old failed computers sitting around for years and finally decided to try and retrieve the data from them. Hooked them up and trasferred them to my PC without a problem.
The 2.5" laptop drive does not require a the power supply connection, but both 3.5" drives did.
USB 3.0 won't matter on a slow drive (like my laptop drive) but the 7200 RPM drive transferred data very quickly.
This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
Pros: Lots of breathing room on this case. Comes with front, back and top fan plus mounts for two side fans. The back and front are mostly mesh to allow for lots of airflow. My PC runs nice and cool in this case with nothing but stock Intel CPU fan. Lots of mounting room for drives.
Cons: As much as I like this case for its functionality, I can't say that I love it's looks. It's not bad looking, but the buttons kind of remind me of a 1975 CB radio--just a bit cheesy. I didn't dock an egg for this though. It was the tight space on the right side of the case for cable management that I was disappointed in. Based on other reviews, I expected a bit better. The included case fans are also a bit loud--not terrible, but noticeable.
Other Thoughts: I really want to love this case, but I just can't quite get there. It worked fine for my needs and looks are not the most important feature. I still recommend it for anyone looking for a solid performing case for a great price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Covers the basic CD/DVD-RW needs for a build. Works great. Good price. No separate driver needed.
Other Thoughts: It is what it is. BIOS found the drive and Win 7 installed without a problem. Have burned several DVD and CD with no coasters so far!READ FULL REVIEW
