Nicely compact size
Cons: Thin metal construction
Other Thoughts: I must have been much luckier than most of the other reviewers here, my case arrived without a scratch on it. Perfect condition.
Please consider, you are buying the lowest-priced case in Antec's line, OF COURSE it's going to have thinner "flimsier" construction. Handle it with a little care and you'll be fine.
OF COURSE the front USB ports are USB 2.0, motherboards with the front USB 3.0 header are still in the minority. When most of the motherboards on the market have a front USB 3.0 header as standard equipment, THEN most of the cases will have USB 3.0 ports on the front as standard.
This is a perfectly good mini-tower case and an absolute steal at the sub-$25 sale price.
Hynix memory chips.
Assembled in the US.
Cons: Packaging wasn't sealed very tight, the sticks were practically falling out.
Other Thoughts: Got a couple of these kits to refurbish a couple older motherboards to run Windows 7.
They popped right into the slots and were immediately recognized by the systems.
I would gladly get more of these if I need to update any more DDR2 systems.
Pros: Tried-and-true SandForce controller (with all features enabled).
Over-provisioned for longer life.
Spacer/shim provided for proper alignment in normal-size drive compartments.
Cons: Processing/shipping seemed longer due to lack of updates.
Other Thoughts: I picked one of these up out of curiosity (and it was on sale).
Silicon Power has several fairly well-received flash-based products on Newegg's site, but they're relatively unknown in the SSD market.
I installed this drive into a Dell laptop, loaded Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit), installed the necessary drivers, rebooted and ran the Windows assessment.
Primary hard drive rating: 7.9!! WOW!!
What more need I say about this drive?
It came with the latest firmware, so update was unnecessary.
I think I'm going to get a few more of these!
