so far, so good6/11/2013 8:25:01 PM

Pros: Fast, quiet, no errors.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I'm very pleased. It replaced another blu ray that died after just a few months. I've used this one heavily to rip a couple hundred BR's and not a single problem. Identical to the less expensive model. Get the cheaper one.

fast, stable BUT with mounting issues4/16/2013 5:19:36 AM

Pros: Fast, immediately recognized by Win 7, solid bios

Cons: It made for a slimline server case, meaning the slot mount is reversed. Needed a little modification to fit in a desktop case. -1 star for desktop mounting issues

Overall Review: Aside from the mounting issue, it is a solid card with a LSI bios. Requires 2x SFF-8087 SAS-SATA "forward" cable. These are inexpensive and widely available online, including at Newegg If you have a server OR you are comfortable with a very easy mod of the mount for a desktop, this is a great card.

Well designed3/24/2013 9:19:49 PM

Pros: Compact, includes both 3.5 and 2.5 drive racks. Easy access to the filter. High quality design.

Cons: No individual anti-vibration drive mounts. The whole 3.5/2.5 rack rest on rubber shock mounts, but that is ineffective as damping vibration. -1 star.

Overall Review: The filter access is much better than on the similar Lian-Li unit. And having the option of 3x 3.5 or 4x 2.5 is big plus. Of course, replace the fan with a quieter 80mm. Overall, very nice unit.

very quiet, cool, stable3/11/2013 9:35:13 PM

Pros: Excellent quality. Very quiet. Very cool. Compact.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Runs 10 drives, 2 burners hot video card while barely running the fan. I could do without the velvet and vinyl bags with power supply and cables came in. A simple box is sufficient.

nice case3/11/2013 9:26:56 PM

Pros: Solid, we built, no sharp edges. roomy

Cons: The internal cable routing holes do not have plastic guards or grommets. It does not ship with a solid cover for the side fan vent (it would help reduce noise.)

Overall Review: A good case. I wish it had more hard internal hard drive mounts.

brittle3/1/2013 7:27:40 PM

Pros: Small.

Cons: Brittle plastic. One arrived smashed to bits and the I don't thing the other two will last long. The plastic is fragile and cracks easily. Junk.

Overall Review: Don't do it.

dirt cheap case10/8/2012 8:41:33 PM

Pros: Inexpensive. Loads of HD mount bays. Roomy. Lightweight. Free.

Cons: Very thin steel. Sharp edges. No front or top fans mounts. Side fan limited to 80 mm and rear fan limited to 92 mm.

Overall Review: This case came free with a Seasonic PSU. It is clearly made with older systems in mind that did not need much airflow. Luckily, I needed to build a low power system that is all SSD's and 2.5 inch hard drives, with MB video. Runs perfectly cool (near ambient temps). This is a great case to practice modding on. The metal is thin and easy to work with, and its so cheap (free) that if you mess it up, you won't care. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it with free shipping. And that would be a stretch.

perfect fit10/8/2012 8:30:42 PM

Pros: Small, good airflow, solid construction, holds a full size ATX MB and a full size PSU with ease.

Cons: Limited cable routing options.

Overall Review: I bought this to replace an 8 year old Lian-Li case that only had 80 mm fans - the layout was great for an older configuration, but could not dissipate heat efficiently. With the same components, the MB and CPU temps are 10 deg cooler. This build has a full size ATX, Season X 650 PSU, huge dual fan Thermalright heat sink, 2 DVD burners, 2 SSD drives and 3 HD's (1.5-2 TB each.) It all fits with plenty of room. Everything is cooler now. Fairly quiet now. Will be much quieter after acoustic foam treatment.

Pros: Inexpensive, seems accurate.

Cons: Laser point seems off axis. Minus 1 star for this

good for stackign two SSD's9/28/2012 10:11:34 AM

Pros: Great for stacking two SSS's in a single 3.5 slot.

Cons: Longer than it need to be, so you need a full length 3.5 bay. Minus 1 star for this.

Overall Review: Work great. Efficient use of space.

small, perfect fit9/28/2012 10:09:40 AM

Pros: Shorter than many other adapters. The drive mount is intentionally off center. This is good for alternating them in a stack - power and SATA are can be offset , L-R

Cons: The drive mount is intentionally off center. only very short screws will work on one side. Minus 1 star.

Overall Review: I bought it to replace an Samsung adapter that was unnecessarily long and protruded i over the MB. This adatper works great.

quality, never fails9/18/2012 9:00:45 AM

Pros: Works after 5 years as flawlessly as day one.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Quality product. It just works. It has been in at least 5 different machines from XP to Win 7, several versions of Redhat and Ubuntu and in a couple of Hackintoshes. It works everywhere I tried it, with every drive. Can.t use it foe the boot partition in a Mac, but not many older cards do
