StarTech.com ESATAPLATE1 1 ft. eSATA Data Internal to External Slot Plate

Most Critical Review

Bad Egg

MSI Raptor IN-9410 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
MSI Raptor IN-9410 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: It git here. that's about it

Cons: Horrible packaging. the box it arrived in was too big for the case, the protective foam en pieces had fallen off and all 4 back corners of the case and the side doors are very badly bent. Fortunately the metal seems very flimsy and i may have success bending it somewhat straight with a hammer. All of the front panel bezzle's were knocked off and floating randomly around the box

Overall Review: It looks like everything was included. But with the beating the case took in shipping, due to the worst packing job in history, We will have to wait to see if the card reader survived

Great board!!

ASUS TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WIFI LGA 1200 Intel B560 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: We have built 4 rigs with this board and have zero issues after a year of running, very stable. This Board has everything you need including WiFi 6 for less $$ then other full size boards. Outstanding for the budget build.

Cons: M.2 -1 slot only active if you are running an 11th gen processor.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone looking for great performance at a reasonable pricepoint

Smokin fast

Pros: Fast and stable, what do you expect from Samsung painless install and drive migration.

Cons: it wasnt free :)

Overall Review: replaced my 265gb Samsung 830 pro as i needed more space, i was surprised that this drive is noticeably quicker loading games, not much but enough to notice.

Works great, Quiet, Pretty Blue color

Pros: I have used these quite a few times and they work and cool fantastic!

Cons: the cooler is very tall, watch the heights in smaller less expensive cases. didnt fit in my Coolermaster elite 341case

Overall Review: I am not dinging this cooler for not fitting in my 6 year old case.
