This review is from: KINGWIN USI-2535 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Drive Adapter
Pros: None - I couldn't get it to work more than a few minutes at a time.
Cons: SATA power connector didn't work. I used the four-pin IDE power connector instead. This connector is not keyed properly allowing easy upside-down insertion of the power connector.
USB connector is loose and doesn't make a contact good enough for the device to be usable.
Pros: Clean sleek look. Plenty of room. Quick-release latches for hard drives. Front and rear 120mm fans that are quiet. Fans appear to do a good job keeping temperatures down. Comes with a 350W or 400W power supply (mine came with a 400W). Ports on the front.
Cons: I don't care for quick-release latches for PCI cards. I would rather secure them with screws. Although temperature management isn't a problem with this case, I think wire grills should be used where fans mount to case to increase airflow. Front USB/Firewire ports would be easier to use if they were in the middle or at the top of the case.
Other Thoughts: Comes in silver and black. I bought the black version. A clean, sleek, black case was exactly what I was looking for. Most black cases overdo the designer look, which I don't care for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is good. Dual core, comes with a quiet fan/heatsink that cools adequately.
Other Thoughts: Works flawlessly with my Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard, Corsair XMS2 memory, Gigabyte 7300GT video card, and Hitachi hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
