Cons: Purchased two of these ~ 2 years ago. Used them as extension cables to feed power to 3TB Drive and my SSD. I just took them off to discover the little copper contact wires in the SATA connectors had eaten into both of my drives power connectors and left some white powdery oxidation. I think my SSD is ruined.
Other Thoughts: Will spend more and get higher quality connectors next time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this drive a few weeks ago. It was totally blank. I booted partition magic in my optical drive and ran the SMART test it has, passed. Then I formatted the drive.
I booted SeaTools and ran the extended SMART test and it passed that too! It's always great to have some extra storage around, I'll use this for a long time, I'm sure.
Cons: You always take a little risk with a refurb. I've had mostly good luck.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like this case because it looks good and it comes with a Power Supply. I bought it so that I could purchase a new CPU and MoBo (A10-5800K & GA-F2A85X-UP4) with one 8G stick of Ram, on a budget, and just get it done; up and running. I can always add to the build later. It all worked out great! The system sits in my living room, everyone else that's seen it/used it likes it a lot too. The Power Supply has a 24 pin and an 8 pin power connector. This is the first build I've had where the power supply is on the bottom, I think I prefer it this way. You don't have all of that stuff hanging down in the way anymore. I almost always get the ATX size boards for myself, and I really like the mid tower size case, it doesn't take up so much room, still big enough though. Big enough to stick more stuff in there for a long time to come.
Pretty often, I will have my system sitting with easy access to the rear panel ports of my MoBo. I like the orange fans and horizontal expansion slots in the back of case. It's a lot more pleasant to look at than a lot of the systems that I've owned in the past.
Cons: The Power Supplies 8 pin connector is just a little short, so at some point you might want to get yourself an internal power cable, (extension cable) for the 8 pin connector.
