PNY Metal Attache 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FDI8GB/APPMT2-GE
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Not fast, but works 03/12/2014

This review is from: PNY Metal Attache 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FDI8GB/APPMT2-GE

Pros: Small size just extends out of the USB port

Cons: Pretty slow, about a 5MB write speed and 4k speeds, well, not fast.

Other Thoughts: I will continue to buy these drives. For my application, the size is more important than the speed.

Seem to be reliable after quite a bit of reading and writing.

Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W

4 out of 5 eggs Nice and tight 03/11/2014

This review is from: Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W

Pros: Nice looking, very compact.

Cons: Really tight, know what you're getting in to with this size chassis.

Other Thoughts: The fit and finish could be a little nicer, though for the cost, it's pretty perfect.

Another annoyances would be the case power connector, in my case with a full output motherboard, it couldn't be relocated really. So be aware of that for your install.

The last thing is board specific... I used a Gigabyte Ultra Durable E350N and where the ATX power connector is, it right next to the open power supply. It's so close that the boards pretty much meet up. Where the ATX power connector is, is also where a large capacitor sits on the power supply. I was unable to plug in the power cable with modifying the connector. I simply removed the clasp on the power cable and it works. It's not preferred but is minor unless you plan on transporting this case + motherboard a bunch.

For my specific use, I boot from usb and there is no internal hard drive. If you're going to be installing a drive, things will be super tight.

I own 8 of these with more on the way, trust that it's a great product worth buying.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPE-HF-D525-O Proprietary Server Motherboard DDR3 800MHz, unbuffered, non-ECC, 1.5V only
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: As indicated by all other reviews, this thing just rocks. IPMI, Dual intel gig, 6 sata, runs cool.

Cons: With my setup the fan header locations were a problem. Between the rackmount chasis and the headers, my cables didn't reach. I was planning on using a Y cable for the two front fans, so with the y, it worked. Without it though, I would need extension cables for the fans to reach the header. This really isnt a con, since it's more of an issue with the case, but if they put the headers closer to the front, that would have been more useful to me.
