This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1100 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: The finished product is nice. Clean lines with the brushed aluminum look of the front bezel make this case look like it would cost more than it does. The stock fan is quiet, and with the addition of a Silenex 92 mm exaust fan, the computer runs quiet and cool. The case feels light but sturdy when assembled.
Cons: The hard drive mount is the worst design I've ever come accross, and I've used a lot of cases in varing price ranges from a lot of different manufactures. I also had a hard time fitting an ASRock H170M Pro4 micro-atx motherboard in it because of the optical drive bay. Cable management is nonexistant in this case. Excess cables can be bundled and hidden behind the hard drive bracket however.
Other Thoughts: I will not use this case again, but I might give some of their higher priced offerings a chance in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is unbeatable. Packaged better than the retail version. Works perfectly and looks brand new.
Cons: No cons
Other Thoughts: Always a little apprehensive buying refurbished items, but this one didn't disappoint. Works perfectly. No dead pixels or signs of use. Includes everything you need except a DVI cable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works! Decently fast drive. Using it as my game drive to hold my steam library along with a 1TB Seagate as a windows libraries drive and a 250GB Samsung 850EVO as the OS drive. This drive is faster then the Seagate drive. S.M.A.R.T. shows 30 power-on hours after 5 days of use.
Cons: Slightly noisy when being written to, but quiet all other times.READ FULL REVIEW
