Pros: Silent, fast, backwards-compatible to SATA-I, included external drive bay & software.
Cons: Runs warmer than I expected.
Other Thoughts: I replaced the drive in my 5 year-old Lenovo U330 laptop in an attempt to give it a new lease on life. It is now so fast that I was able to encrypt the entire drive with TrueCrypt and still get better performance than the original drive.
The included external case and software made imaging the drive a snap.
Pros: Very quiet, I can't hear it above my case/PS fans.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: To be honest I was expecting a more noticeable improvement over my XL800 for WoW but I guess WoW is too old-tech to take advantage of what the 4850 offers. I still get screen stuttering with the latest drivers.
I haven't check temps under load yet.
This review is from: NZXT HUSH Black SECC Steel/ Aluminum/ Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very very quiet. Nifty drive mounts. Decent construction. Nice glossy black finish. Decent airflow with included fans.
Cons: The LEDs are way too bright. I unplugged the front cover one but even the power LED is very bright.
The front cover does not allow you to have cards plugged into a card reader and be able to close the cover. Similarly, if you have drivebay-mounted fan controls or other non-flush drives, you will not be able to close the cover.
I'd prefer front-mount sound/usb/etc ports instead of on the side.
The fans are a little noisy and the front one has a moderately bright blue LED.
Other Thoughts: Used it to replace another supposedly quiet case and I'm definitely a convert. I would buy another without hesitation.READ FULL REVIEW
