Great drive2/2/2016 6:56:10 PM

Pros: Swapped from 840 Pro drives to these. These can hold their own against the Samsung. Haven't lost a single one out of hundreds I have in production

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would love to see this or MX200 drives available in 2TB sizes.

Stable so far2/2/2016 6:55:10 PM

Pros: Been solid for over a year in a pfSense router. Obviously not doing much writing.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Can only comment on their near-idle reliability, not write-intensive workload reliability or speed.

Good chassis2/2/2016 6:52:44 PM

Pros: Cheap small No issues with PSU so far. Running solid for over a year as a PFSense router Energy efficient

Cons: Poor mounting options for 2.5" drives internally

Overall Review: No hotswap bays Would've only taken off half a star for lack of 2.5" mounting options if it were possible. Annoying but not that big of a deal.

Seems OK, only supports 2 graphics outputs2/2/2016 6:47:02 PM

Pros: UEFI BIOS feel like playing Starfox on N64. Cheap

Cons: You cannot use 3 graphics outputs at the same time.

Overall Review: ASUS/ASRock boards easily and consistently support 3 outputs at a time. After spending a while with Gigabyte trying to find out what was wrong with these boards it was determined by them that they will not and cannot support 3 simultaneous outputs.

Doesn't Hold Up Well2/2/2016 6:41:23 PM

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poor performance when compared to only slightly more expensive drives. 2 of 5 drives died within 3 months of use under a light desktop workload in an office.

Overall Review: So far Patriot's RMA has been useless. I've been fighting them to RMA the two dead drives for weeks now with no luck. I cannot say I recommend this drive whatsoever or Patriot products for that matter. You get what you pay for.

Solid Switch2/2/2016 6:38:36 PM

Pros: Cheap Gigabit

Cons: None

Overall Review: Updated from 2 to 5 stars. (2/2/16). The problem was defective cables causing presumably bad interference amongst themselves with the PoE. Proper cables resolved all issues.

Corsair has really outdone themselves with this one!11/28/2012 8:35:56 PM

Pros: Sturdy Elegant Good Cable Management SATA Dock USB 3 Front Panel Integrated Fan Controller Tool-less Design Fan Filters Spacious Very Little Plastic Brushed Aluminum Front Panel

Cons: USB 3 is passthrough cables instead of a motherboard header.

Overall Review: Corsair has really outdone themselves this time. The case is absolutely astounding from the ground up. The quality for the price is just unsurpassed - I don't think you could get a better-built case than this one for $160 ($140 AR on a good sale). The case is made out of and heavy gauge steel, and the brushed aluminum front panel is just gorgeous in comparison with most case's plastic fronts. The case has a wonderful tool-less design. This includes expansion cards, 3.5"/2.5" disks, 5.25" drives, fan filters, both sides of the case - does it get any better? The case has awesome cable management abilities, and all of the holes for cable management have grommets which certainly helps the looks of things, as well as preventing the cables from getting cut on the metal like happens with some cases. I'm getting the rest of my components tomorrow and I'll update this review with how well everything fits - but I don't foresee any issues.
