Cons: I haven't seen any so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-525 3.5" Drive/Device Transfer Bracket For 5.25" Drive Bay (Black)
Pros: It's inexpensive and does what it's supposed to do. It came in the right color and looks nice.
Cons: Cheaply made. It was impossible to tell that I'd overtightened a couple of the screws that mounted the drive to the bracket until the plastic cracked. Conversely, the screws on the outside of the bracket (to mount the bracket to the drive bay) needed, and could take, a lot of tightening. It was difficult to get the panel flush and lined up correctly on the front.
Other Thoughts: Kind of a pain to install, but even with cracked plastic screw holes it's holding my card reader just fine, and it looks good. So, for the price, and because I'm not likely to re-use it or mess with it any time soon, I feel I got my money's worth.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Define XL R2 Black Silent EATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: ROOMY! Heavy! And well-finished, with a hundred small touches, like repositionable HDD cages, rubber grommets, access to the back of the motherboard, bottom mounting for the psu (the psu can be installed upside down if desired), easily removable dust filters, and drive trays that work with both SSDs and HDDs. Cable management was almost effortless, thanks to the intelligent routing available. This thing also does keep things quiet. The difference in noise level when I have the sides off, versus when they're on, is amazing.
Cons: It's hardly worth mentioning, but the black paint will flake off fairly easily if scraped.
Other Thoughts: I've just finished building my first computer (I've owned a few, but never built one before) and I consider myself very lucky to have chosen this case. It offers a great degree of customization and sophistication while remaining novice-friendly.READ FULL REVIEW
