Pros: -Hard exterior with flexible rim. -Enough contours for modest grip but could be better. -360 degree locking swivel belt-clip holster. -Buttons are useable despite case stiffness as expected.

Cons: -Phone case exterior could use more grip texture. -No screen protector but that was expected.

Overall Review: -Wish it had a built-in strap loop for athletic arm straps.

Works12/8/2015 9:14:25 AM

Pros: Fitting: Corsair 200R case, can't use standard orientation in drive bay with second SSD inserted in bay underneath due to SATA power cable interference from a Corsair CX500M, but if inverted no interference. Operation: Modestly fast, no signs of power state issues, see Other Thoughts for details.

Cons: Price: Wish it was cheaper.

Works10/11/2015 2:50:18 PM

Pros: Installation: Fits into the 2.5" bay for a Corsair 200R. Operation: Modestly fast for the price ($65-80), it may not beat the competition out right but it's currently stable and sufficiently fast to have less than 10 second start-up and shutdown times. I'm thankful I don't have to deal with a HDD anymore.

Cons: None.

Pros: Installation: Besides PCI-E slot and power cable install procedures, it fits. Operation: Scores a 5218 with a i5-4430 @ 3 Ghz on 3DMark Fire Strike 1.1. Idle temperature 30*C (86*F) & Load temperature 70*C (158*F).

Cons: Minor: The dual 6-pin PCI-E power connectors can be a hassle to plug in.

Spacious10/11/2015 2:31:30 PM

Pros: Installation: Everything fits. Cable management: Enough options for a novice to manage cables half decently. Other: Plenty of zip ties, hdd screws, optical screws, ssd screws, fan screws, and motherboard screws to screw everything in.

Cons: Minor: This may be a standards issue with ATX/Micro ATX compatible cases, the far right top/bottom mounting holes for a Micro ATX motherboard are not secured due to no available mounting studs supplied by the case. There are enough side/top openings worry about foreign material intrusion into the case.

Works10/11/2015 2:15:04 PM

Pros: Installation: Fits as designed into a Corsair 200R case with enough length for cables to span the case and be properly managed. Operation: All but the Main and CPU power cables are removable, powers dual 6 pin PCI-E for R9 270X GPU. Other: Main power 20+4 pins, CPU power 4+4 pins, 2 sets of dual PCI-E 6+2 pins, and includes outlet power cable.

Cons: Minor: Packaging quality is not what it used to be 7-8 years ago.

Robust10/11/2015 2:02:08 PM

Pros: Installation: Fits the Micro ATX standard for a Corsair 200R Case Features: A plethora of functions to help manage and tune hardware and update firmware with little to no hassle.

Cons: Minor: No LED indicator for power to the board while system is off. This might be the standards fault for a mixed ATX/Micro ATX case, far right top and bottom mounting holes are not secured due to the Corsair 200R not providing a mounting point for those holes. Be careful of flexing the board while installing hardware and power cables.

Pros: - Number of power connectors

Cons: - Mounting issues within a Rosewill 5600 series case. Off screw hole alignment and rough tapped screw holes in PSU housing. - 24 pin power connector issue with a Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H. Required motherboard removal from case to FIRMLY press the 24 pin connector into the port. - SATA power cables are too short for a Rosewill 5600 series case. Requires a SATA power extension. PSU seems to be designed for a Micro-ATX case.

Average12/21/2013 10:21:35 AM

Pros: - Modest UEFI BIOS configurations - Reasonable spec and for a Standard-ATX

Cons: - 24 pin power connection port was incredibly difficult to plug in and clip. This was used in conjunction with a Corsair CX430 v2.3 PSU - No "Power On" light indicator - No top/bottom right mounting screw holes allows too much flexing when dis/connecting RAM modules and 24 pin power connector. However, there is a center right screw mount that required a screw standoff in a Rosewill 5600 series case. The lack of mounts in conjunction with the difficulty of the 24 pin power connector forced me to remove the motherboard from the case and press the 24 pin power connector into the motherboard.

The Good and The Bad8/15/2012 4:57:21 AM

Pros: Owned: 2 months (during review) Write Speed: Up to 40-50MByte/s (single file), ~15MByte/s (folders/files) using Tobshiba Satellite L775D-S5218 on Windows 7 64-bit Opinion: Decently compact, simple software, and easily reformatted for personal uses. Performs as I expected.

Cons: Windows XP Compatibility: While this external drive can operate on Windows XP 32-bit it may run into issues with connectivity if transferring large file formats that could run into the 32-bit limitation of such operating systems. [Simplified: Expect to reconnect the drive in Windows XP 32-bit for large file transfers (+40GBytes). Hard Disk Drive: The physical hard disk drive of this specific model contains a different physical interface than your typical SATA/IDE HDD. It is physically incompatible with current mainstream HDD interfaces making this drive useless for swapping out other internal/external HDDs that require a SATA/IDE interface. Opinion: As for reasons why this HDD is made like this one can only guess but one standpoint is that fact that it removes the need for extra adapters to convert to a USB interface and helps shrink the overall size of the external enclosure.

Overall Review: My only major misgiving about this HDD is the SATA/IDE incompatibility, it makes itself useless beyond its own enclosure for us low-tech DIY hobbyists. Very few avenues are left with this device to allow to be useable in other electronics, but one possibility is to research the PCBs on similar WD HDDs that use a SATA inferace and whether they are interchangeable, basically changing the interface on the HDD. Although this route is practically cannibalizing other HDDs unless PCBs can be individually ordered.
