Pros: It's Fast.. Did I mention Fast ?
I Love this drive! I'm using this as my main Os drive and
it's giving me the same performance that my 74 gig raptor did and now I have all this space to play with ! :) Yea!
It's a little smaller drive that is encased in full size (normal drive size) housing SO with the added aluminum I bet that's going to act as a heat sync so it'll stay cooler longer I really like that!
Cons: None to speak of...
Overall Review: I used Acronis True Image Home 2009 to clone my smaller Raptor drive to this.. 3 step procedure and it was done!
I dropped this in my drive bay Plugged it in swapped the boot order and it fired up first rattle out of the box :)
Pros: I love the fact that it has so many USB connections, 4 on the Back and the 2 on top of mycase.. . plus an extra internal connection on top of all of that .. I'll put my card reader and then I can have cords going everywhere. It'll look like a black squid..
Cons: I can't think of any..
Overall Review: This is the first board that I have ever owned from this company.. If it lives for 5 years.. I'll get another one !
Pros: OK It's running cool.. I upgraded the fans to 2 Thermaltake A2018 120mm Blue LED Case Fan. I slapped the Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU ATX 12V 2.0 500W and I'm running an Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz on the MSI K9AG Neo2 board with 4 gigs of ram..(XP Only recognizes 3gigs) :( .. I have a gforce 8500 in it and it's a desktop machine for my office(I figured pour the money into it now instead of wasting time later..) it's a little fire plug.. I love it!
Cons: The only real dreaw back to this design is the harddrive mount.. It almost crimps the cable.. I amnot a fan of sideways mounting.. If it had about another 1/4th inch clearance to the door there wouldn't be any stress on the cable(I won't be in the box for a LONG THIME! as I said this is my office machine)
Overall Review: I bought this one because it matched my other one(Thermaltake Armor) I desided to stay in the family ! I love both cases.. and come on If the only thing I can gripe about is a $3.99 SATA cable... I really need to find something else to gripe about..
