InWin Case and Asus Motherboard
Pros: All steel construction and easy to install motherboard in the unit
Cons: I had to remove the processor fan to install or change the hard drive. I had a build-in plastic processor fan shield that did not line up with my processor and motherboard (ASUS)
Pros: Worked out of the box (unlike the other brand). Installed in my new 15" MacBook Pro and once the Apple logo appears I'm ready to start working in under 10 seconds. Illustrator and Photoshop open so quickly that if you blink you'll miss the splash screen. So, if you want a really fast boot and access to your apps almost in a blink of the eye spend the money. If not, go with a 7200 drive and sit back and have a cup of coffee.
Cons: The only drawback is the price. But its getting better. The first SSD I purchased earlier this summer was almost $1000.
