Most Favorable Review

Excellent Quality

Rosewill Armer RX308 USB 3.0 Full Aluminum 25mm 3.5" Enclosure with LED Indication
Rosewill Armer RX308 USB 3.0 Full Aluminum 25mm 3.5" Enclosure with LED Indication

Pros: Easy installation, fast USB 3.0 speeds, no plug and play issues.

Cons: The blue LED is bloody bright, and can't be disabled, but for most users, this isn't an issue. It's not really that big of a deal for me, either, it's just that I use it for an HTPC.

Overall Review: This is really way above average of some of the Rosewill components I've purchased over the years, this is an excellent, cost-effective enclosure. I bought two of these, both to use for hard drives I ripped out of Seagate GoFlex desktop drives, and their inferior enclosures.

Most Critical Review

Lots of features, little quality

Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)
Netgear N900 Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Router with 3.5" Storage Bay (WNDR4700)

Pros: Built in NAS, high transfer speeds

Cons: WAN port failed after 9 months. Kind of important

Overall Review: I bought this router because it had the perfect combination of things I'm looking for: hard drive bay, USB 3.0 ports (perfect for a media center PC storage), N900, decent range. I did NOT expect that, after 9 months, the WAN port would be deceased. I have a support ticket in to Netgear, but after seeing the negative experiences by others here, i'm not overly optimistic.

Mediocre Drive Advertised as a Fast Drive

Patriot Memory 128GB Supersonic Rage 2 USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Up to 400MB/s Transfer Speed, Durable Rubber Housing (PEF128GSR2USB)
Patriot Memory 128GB Supersonic Rage 2 USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Up to 400MB/s Transfer Speed, Durable Rubber Housing (PEF128GSR2USB)

Pros: 1) Drive is compact 2) Good Price

Cons: Falls well short of the advertised transfer rates. I've seen it peak at 40MB/s for a few minutes and then drastically drop off. On average, it writes under 10MB/s. Additionally, it takes a lot longer to 'seek' than the allegedly slower drive that it was bought to replace. Overall, just disappointed it wasn't faster than it was.

Overall Review: It's not nearly as fast as expected, and is actually slower than other drives similarly priced, so i'm not going to ding it too badly, since its price was on par with its disappointing speed. Just don't buy it expecting a super fast USB drive.

Great gaming rig, even greater price.

Pros: Inexpensive, powerful, M.2 SATA drive, secondary hard drive, good graphics

Cons: I don't have any major complaints, The screen is a little bit of a wash out, but not to the level that the other reviewers seem to think, seriously.

Overall Review: If you are under a budget and want a gaming laptop that can handle just about anything out there well right now, this is the machine for you. I wouldn't be swayed by the negative reviews citing the display as a major drawback. I certainly didn't, and I'm glad I got this machine.

Sharp, quality case.

In Win BL040 SFF Micro ATX Slim case with IP-S300FF1-0 H Haswell Ready power supply, 8cm Fan, USB 3.0X2 & USB2.0 x 2, HD audio, Air Filter

Pros: Spacious, sharp looking, plenty of front USB

Cons: None, Really.

Overall Review: There was a time when I would have eschewed this case because of it's cost and size, but no longer. This is really an excellent solution for a small form factor, and you can build a powerful machine inside of this box. If you're hesitant, put your mind at ease, this case is an excellent product.

Great Alternative to a small NAS

Pros: Cost effective, fast, easy for my end-users to utilize.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Used this drive to replace an aging NAS, much to the delight of my customer. It's so easy for them to use, and they especially love the ability to access it remotely.
