it's an economy replacement
Cons: Runs much hotter than 500GB WD blue series.
Other Thoughts: It's unknown at this point but these are going in Thinkcentres and I'm worried with the higher temps they will fail as all platters no matter what brand suffer exponentially more wear as the temperature goes up.
Hopefully soon SSD's will be the optimal replacement due to size, heat, performance and longevity in a regular workstation.
Pros: Cheap, gets the job done in a pinch, it does not require extra power with an SSD installed.
Cons: Keep in mind this one uses an ASMedia chip, and won't see over 200 Megabytes per second when usb 3.0 is capable of ~500.
Other Thoughts: It is kinda cheap but gets the job done the cable is thick and if you're not careful you can bust the connector of the traces. the USB 3.0 thin connectors need to be reworked when mounting to only one side as it seems to be a matter of time for an externals' to break.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A04B Black Aluminum MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Lian Li's cases are my favorite for every type of build I do especially smaller builds, even for gaming.
Great overall quality except for one flaw, see cons
Cons: I have moved away from ever using this case again as it seems every single one I've received (over the span of a year) have bent corners on top.
The flat piece on top of the case has no support on the sides if there is ANY impact it seems to lift the edges like little wings about an inch on either side of the top, it lifts the aluminum up.
You'll notice in the picture it'll look different than what you receive due to this defect. I've had 8 with this defect. I attribute nobody else reporting it as an issue because it is fairly subtle and may be mistaken as part of the design.
Other Thoughts: this is the only case that has a real issue from lian li, other than them not giving full disclosure as to the PSU sizing in the itx cases.READ FULL REVIEW
