This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V650B Black Aluminum ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Aluminum, Very Lite but sturdy, Plenty of room for large CPU cooler (Hyper 212), Huge number of Hard Drive and SSD locations, Quiet-can barely hear it with all fans on max, Side panels snap on/off very easy, all Hd mounts have shock dampening and rail mounting. 2 hot swappable docks at top of rack
Cons: A bit expensive, Haven't been able to get the card reader to work! Think it may be bad! USB-3.0 works but card reader doesn't.
Would have given it a 5 if the Card reader worked!
Other Thoughts: This case is capable of taking the contents of a full tower case and fitting it all in a mini tower.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price You can't hook up 2 external SATA drives via SATA any cheaper. I have hook up customers HD's to my system all the time to rescue their data before a rebuild and this thing couldn't be easier. Other reviewers have said they can't get 3 gig per second out of this thing and that may be true but I consistently get in excess of 2 gig so its faster than USB.
Cons: DRIVES WILL GET REALLY HOT!!! I can't even recommend using it with single drive for long without a fan.
Controller must support Port Multiplyer but most quality controlers do. If your controller doesn't work with this unit it's not the toasters fault.
Other Thoughts: I have had it running with at least 1 drive for over 6 months now. As long as you mount some kind of a fan to it you should have no problems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works Well both USB and eSata work fine on both drives. It works just as advertised. Uses only 1 eSata connection for 2 drives.
Cons: Hard Drives get extremely hot almost to hot to touch. The first HD I inserted was a customers I was trying to copy some data off of it before an OS reinstall. The drive burned up after about 20 minuets of use it was so hot I couldn't touch it. I bought 2 1T drives for it and they got so hot that I had to make a fan shroud that sits on top of the drives and cools them they are barely warm to the touch now.
Other Thoughts: Not suitable for non stop use without the addition of a fan.READ FULL REVIEW
