Nice case

NORCO RPC-230 2U Rackmount Server Case 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
NORCO RPC-230 2U Rackmount Server Case 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: Fits 4 drives, allows adequate cooling. Has nice finish

Cons: It wasn't clear enough to me that "compatible with ATX PSU" meant I need to find a power supply with a linear airflow system, meaning not to use a PSU that has the now common fan on the top/bottom as opposed to the end the cables come out. I should have known, but it didn't click with me.

Overall Review: Shipped via Ontrack, which is a horrible courier that has consistently been dishonest when it comes to my deliveries. In this case, it claimed it tried to deliver at 2 in the afternoon but my place of business was closed. We close at 5 and had 100 cars in the parking lot at 2pm. The next day, it was delivered but was signed for by "Jake". We have no Jake, Jack, Blake, or anything relatively similar. I was in a panic thinking that with the notes from the day before they went to the wrong business. Luckily I only had to look around for an hour (after driving in to work as the package was scheduled for the day before, when I was working) before I found my package. Also, paid for 3 day shipping after having already purchased Newegg Premiere due to the order processing screen claiming I could save money by joining.

Promises, promises

Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership

Pros: Can't be blank, so "Mary had a little lamb, His fleece was white as snow, And everywhere that Mary went, The lamb was sure to go."

Cons: Offered to save me almost $20 in shipping if i signed up before a recent order, then charged me full shipping for that order because my status was not completed. When queried via the web site customer service section about getting shipping returned for this very reason, was told to expect a response within 3-5 business days. It's now been 10.

Overall Review: [Company that sounds like a place with rainforests] offers Prime and instantly gives you free two-day shipping and a huge catalog of free to watch TV shows and movies (not the newest but still sizable) after ordering. Newegg sells you on the fact you can save "$blah blah" on shipping now via free 3 day shipping if you sign up for Premiere, then doesn't. Requests for corrections go unanswered thus far as well. I tried getting help via the website to no avail.

Solid PSU

CORSAIR CX Series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: Works great.Cables are long enough to reach across even server cases.

Cons: Wire set is a bit stiff. Not a con on this model per se, but as cases get smaller or more crowded, flexibility would be a plus. Not on the part of the item, but on the purchase. Offered free 3 day shipping if I joined Premiere. Then was charged shipping after doing so.
