This review is from: Zalman VE400 Aluminum alloy, Acryl, Poly Carbonate (PC) 2.5" Black / Silver SATA I/II USB1.1 Max. 12Mbps USB2.0 Max. 480Mbps USB3.0 Max. 5Gbps 2.5" HDD Enclosure with Built in Virtual Drive and 9 Digit Keypad Security Feature.
Pros: If it worked it would be the greatest HDD enclosure on the market.
Cons: I upgraded from VE300 because leads that come from SATA connector broke and after 3 times of resoldering, it would no longer work. So I bought this to replace it and buttons don't work. So I am not really able to use the functions that I bought this product for(virtual ODD). Went over on time to get refund from Newegg so contacted Zalman directly and they have not responded. Horrible customer service. Stay away from Zalman products.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great case for your Mini-ITX build, Plenty of room for cable management. And this cases customization inside is unbelievable. The options are endless, remove what you don't need and make room for other stuff. Fits full size Graphics card. Corsair H80 fit just fine using both fans on top rear fan slot directly on top of motherboard.
Cons: Had problems fitting my fully modular power supply in this case. Would recommend to get a shorter power supply as it is a tight fit and will be problematic for cable management if you use a longer power supply. USB ports on side are a pain when opening side panel. Just dangles by cables if connected to motherboard. The Slim HDD slots on the side panel are a great feature but a pain when a side panel is attached by cables. If you use a 240mm radiator (Corsair H100) you will not be able to use the 5.25" drive bay for Optical drive. The Plastic feet will slide on slippery surfaces and is inconvenient when plugging in peripherals.
Other Thoughts: Overall this case looks great and has plenty of room for a great build and adding all sorts of accessories. The price is great too.READ FULL REVIEW
