This review is from: Fractal Design Venturi High Flow Series 140mm Fan
Pros: -High CFM. As an exhaust fan, I found that this can move MORE air than my 120mm Scythe, and do it more quietly! What's not to like?
-Fractal name gives me confidence of it's longevity
-Rubber isolator screw mounts for installing are a nice touch to keep them quiet
-This is noticeable for sound, but not in a bad way. I hear a nice, pleasing "whoosh".
Cons: None really. I guess if I had to pick one it was a little hard at first screwing into the soft rubber mounts. Once all are in though, it feels as sturdy as a normal fan.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this for an exhaust or anywhere you don't need static pressure. This fan moves serious air, fairly quietly!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Armer RX304-APU3-35B - External 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA Connection, Aluminum Body, 80 mm Variable Speed Fan with On / Off Switch, LED Display Panel
Pros: -Very Quiet (just a gentle whoosh of air you have to concentrate on to hear)
-Very Cool. My Green drive has yet to climb above 27 C!
-Excellent connection that truly operates at USB 3.0 speeds and does not drop out.
-Digital temperature readout and ability to set the warning level of the overheat alarm
-Excellent craftsmanship, brushed aluminum housing and very nice stand.
Cons: -As several others have said, the fan was backwards. The only reason I checked was due to other reviews. Come on guys, doesn't everyone realize looking at a fan what direction it blows? I had to unscrew it and turn around and reinstall.
-The power and SATA connectors are separate. This should have been a one unit housing that I could have slid the hard drive into.
*These are fairly minor though, and both combined only took one egg off.
Other Thoughts: I got this to add a network storage drive to attach to my router for quick access without dealing with my home server, which is more for backups, long-term storage and movie media.
My only gripe was assembly workers that have not been told which direction a fan blows.
Overall a very good piece of equipment I bought because of my excellent experience with the similar RX-358 U3C BLK and RX-358 V2 BLK both sold by Rosewill. of which I have a total of 4.
This review is from: APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter
Pros: Fast, accurate cloning.
The software is extremely easy to use.
Other Thoughts: I have always preferred the Apricorn cloning kit, but my last one was almost 4 years old and the cable stopped being recognized anywhere.
So I ordered a new one, which I was pleasantly surprised is USB 3.0 compatible.
Works like a charm!
