Pros: looks cool
Cons: This does not work with windows 10 at all, it shows up as a Xbox adapter and you can't use it as a wifi card for internet. All my other wifi cards work just fine... just not this one. Driver / tech support is non existent.
Other Thoughts: I am really frustrated from trying to find a work around on this device. It would show up for 1 second then windows would turn it into a xbox wifi adapter... So the plug and play drivers are wrote wrong on this as at best it would show up as a 802. for 1 second then boom now it's a xbox adapter... I also am going to say i called microsoft just to see and they upset me.... after being transferred multi times hung up and even transferred to XBOX I just flat gave up.
#UPDATE!# As of 2/17/2016 (months later) I have still yet to get this to work. The seller let me just keep it after refunding my money so from time to time I just try to see if i can get it to work. The correct website for drivers is out of china and to the us has a very slow connection. like 40 minutes to DL a 30MB file when you can get it to connect. The newest drivers say they support windows 10 but this is a lie. Do not buy this product it is not supported by "EDUP of america" and they don't even list it on their page. As I and the other guy mentioned it shows up as a Xbox adapter under windows 7, 8 and 10. I have no clue why or what the hell that means when attached to a PC lol but it definitely doesn't work as a wifi dongle and that's what it's meant for.
Pros: Very Clean! As i'm sure you know it can support a full GPU and PSU and that's awesome! the mounting for the water cooling setups works great. I added remote rgb led kits to mine (one inside case and other under the front shroud ontop of the fan dust cover and it glows amazing, whats even better is because of the way the power led works it doesn't even interfere with that. It does hide the cables of your PSU while showing off the psu it's self and that's a nice touch others havn't mentioned.
Cons: Ok. keep in mind I am a very hard sell. So the flaws I personally found were. The internal SSD mount and cable management grommets are at a weird height not lining up with each other. This puts a strain on the sdd for the power cable mainly pushing it at a slight angle. Next As others have mentioned This case is really not small. It seems to be only a inch smaller in hight and maybe 2" in depth vs a normal atx so if anything it's a micro case that takes a itx mobo to fit a full size gpu / psu. I am ok with this but kinda wanted something smaller at the same time. If you don't go with a modular psu , plan on taking out the bottem HD cages as there is not much room to spare. I also found the back pannel hard to shut.. Others have mentioned the lack of the hinge design and I will agree it's missed but more importantly they didn't leave much clearence behind the mobo for thick bundles of cables. There seemed to be plenty of room off 390x for them to move the mobo forward and give that extra inch back there but aparently they really wanted to give ppl more than enough room for the GPU. I still am not going to take off a egg for any of these flaws as a pro builder can easily work around all these issues vs buying a cheaper quality case. .
Other Thoughts: Over all this is a very very nice case. I am a huge "phan" of phanteks a rather new player in the market but if you like clean cut cases that are like the sleeper beast machines of the pc world this is a good fit. It always seems to come down to nzxt , corsair and phanteks for my builds and that says allot with phanteks being the new player in the market. As a professional builder they seem to address every issue I look for and I am a very hard sell as the product represents me to someone else.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These SSHD's are nice! You can configure a SSD and HD to preform like a SSHD but I love the simple form factor and not having to configure anything. It is great for builds you are doing for other people. Lots of space and fast times, whats not to love! In theory a SSHD should out last a SSD and HD so that is a + too.
Cons: More people don't know what a SSHD is so when you show them a build their minds melt going why no SSD and you have to explain you used a SSHD and they go " Oh ... whats that?"
Other Thoughts: These are great for any build , especially older computers that can't combine a ssd + hd for the same effect. 1 drive is all you need.
Elitest jerks may gawk but serious system builders love these things and i have purchased many many ssd's , hd's and now have been pushing SSHD's For the avg person this is the way to go hands down!
