HEC Vigilance Black 0.5 mm Thickness SGCC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Dual 8cm Fan, 2x USB2.0 and HD Audio
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's a cheap, and I mean CHEAP, case. It looks a lot better than most of the other bizarre looking cases available. I didn't have much trouble fitting in components. It does what it was intended for; something to put computer components in. I like the big power button but wish the lights and reset button were positioned under the 3.5" drive bay.

Cons: Be careful of razor sharp edges! Very thin metal. The tool-less clip mechanism broke the first time I tried to use it. Good thing it had screw holes. DVD door is going to be the second thing to break, it's super flimsy. Third thing to break is going to be the front panel clips. I cracked one of them taking off the front panel to install the DVD drive. Super Glue to the rescue! Case came lopsided and bent. Absolutely NO quality control, It is missing rivets that holds it all together! I was able to cosmetically repair it but the rear corner support is rippled beyond repair. Only came with half as many screws as I needed thanks to the broken tool-less mechanism but I had plenty in my extra parts bin.

Other Thoughts: I was in a pinch for a budget build and this was the only case that didn't come with a power supply that looked half-way decent. I made a bad choice that I won't make again. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this case, it's GARBAGE!

Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW240A3K5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1) FAST! (Thats an understatement!)
2) 5 YEAR WARRANTY!
3) Intel Reliability and Compatibility
4) SATA III 6Gb/s Connectivit
5) Speed is as advertised on a SATA III controller.

Cons: 1) Price is still over $1/GB.
2) Amount of storage space.
3) Did I mention the price is still a little high?

Other Thoughts: This thing smokes my two WD Raptor 600GB drives in RAID0. The 3.5" drive adaptor could have been a little better. You must download the Toolbox software from Intel's web site as this does not ship with any software.

Western Digital WD Green WD5000AZDX 500GB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Designed for power savings rather than performance. This is a good option for NAS storage. It's also not as loud as some of the other WD drives available. Built-in power management mode that spins it's self down after a few minutes of being idle.

Cons: Not that great of a performer, but if your buying this drive, you're probably wanting it for mass storage media. Built-in power management seems to override ACPI BIOS and software spin-down settings. I haven't found a way to disable the built-in power management or change it's preset idle spin-down settings.

Other Thoughts: As a reply to DRL's comment, the spindle speed is supposed to be a variable speed between 5400 and 7200 RPM instead of a fixed speed.
