Pros: This is one of the few computer cases where the PSU can be mounted the old fashioned way, at the top of the case where it acts as an exhaust fan. I covered the top fan hole with some black metal film tape so it's impervious to liquids/small objects and it looks great.
With the drive cage removed, there's still mounting points for a 2.5" SSD and a 3.5" HDD, plus plenty of room for a decent video card.
Cons: The LEDs are too bright, but they are easily replaceable (soldering is required).
Other Thoughts: This is a 5 star case, I just got one with a manufacturing defect and no response from SilverStone support, so minus 1 star. Whoever built the front panel broke a LED lens and instead of fixing it just covered it up with tons of hotmelt glue. Other than that, the quality is excellent. Rather than abuse Newegg's awesome return policy by returning the whole case for a tiny broken piece of plastic I just 3D printed a new lens, which turns out works even better than the original lens.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Solid quality, runs quiet even with the fan on. Never had one fail (and I use a lot of them).
Other Thoughts: If you see this on a rebate deal, note that Seasonic is exceptional in that they will send you a rebate check in a timely manner. Very nice compared to most other seller's "gift card" rebates that take months to arrive, if ever.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good quality, works well, intuitive user interface. Reasonably fast for an encrypted USB drive.
Cons: Tiny display size and no disk activity indicator.
Other Thoughts: Works well with Newegg's Hitach OJ11283 320GB HDD.READ FULL REVIEW
