Pros: - Smaller than full tower with just as many drive slots
- Plenty of cooling
- Not as heavy as a full Tower
- I really like the quick access door. It has a spring loaded latch
- Easy access fan filters
- Optional side fan
- Built-in fan controller
Cons: - I would have like to see higher airflow fans. I am running 7 HDD's for network storage so I ungraded to higher airflow front fans.
Overall Review: - My old case (16 years old) had a bunch of small noisy fans. Newer cases have 140mm fans that are much quieter and more airflow. This turned out to be the perfect upgrade case for me.
- I also wanted to install a couple of M.2 SSD's and read that they tend to run hot so I wanted a case with a side fan to provide direct airflow. This case had optional 120/140mm side fan. I installed a 140mm fan and filter. M.2 SSD's run nice and cool.
Pros: - Very fast
- Easy to install
- Comes in several sizes
Overall Review: - I have good performance and life from Western Digital HDD's so I decided to give their SSD's a try. Just install it and the OS brings it up as another disk drive.
- With Crystal DiskMark64 comparing WD HDD to SSD performance on the same computer read speed was 19.4 times faster and the write speed was 17.1 times faster. MSI motherboard with Z390 chip set and i7-9700K CPU.
Pros: Best performance for for the dollar I have found.
Overall Review: I now have a set of these in all 3 of my computers. One with Asus motherboard and the other with MSI motherboards. I would recommend them to anyone. Always check your motherboard compatibility list before purchasing memory.
Pros: Excellent with 1920 x 1080 (1080p) resolution.
Overall Review: Excellent for converting digital video to VGA (usually labeled PC-IN). I use it adapt my new computer to my old monitor. Picture quality than with my old computer.
Pros: Lots of storage.
I like the case design.
Cons: Extremely slow writing data. Much slower than all my other flash drives.
Overall Review: Read data is not but writing too slow. OK if you just use it to store short files.
I was going to give it one egg but i did like like the design and looks so it got 2.
Pros: Low cost 3-pack.
Overall Review: They work as they should at a very reasonable price.
Pros: Quiet with plenty of airflow.
Nice long wires.
PWM speed control. Just plug them into MP ports.
Overall Review: My new case came with one low airflow fan. I purchases 3 of these fans - it's still quiet and now has plenty of airflow.
Pros: Low Cost
Easy to install - just plug it in and it works
Good sound for the price
Overall Review: I was going to order a more expensive set of speakers but they were out of stock so I ordered these. Better than I expected. If you want a nice set of low cost speakers put these on your list.
Pros: Very quite due to plenty of padding.
Plenty of room inside with 8 drive bays for HDD or SDD.
Cons: Heavy. Aluminum would be less weight but that would cost more.
Overall Review: I wanted a case with an optional side fan so I would have direct airflow over the M.2 SSD cards.
If you want a big quite case this is a good choice.
Pros: Easy to use.
Overall Review: Good flexibility - just an all around good cable.
Pros: Easy to install
Lots of fan connectors. I have a case that has 4 fans plus the CPU fan that needs to be controlled.
Overall Review: It has two M.2 PCIe slots and you can still use all 6 SATA ports. With some other boards you loose one or 2 SATA slots when you install M.2's.
Pros: Excellent low cost DP to DVI cable.
Comes on several different lengths.
Overall Review: I would recommend this cable.
Pros: I like that it has two M2. slots.
Cons: I have noticed that ASUS BIOS's most always select a slow DRAM clock speed in Auto mode. I have had this problem two different MB's. Easy to correct by manually setting the correct number in the BIOS.
Overall Review: I would recommend this MB for almost any purpose. It has all the features that you will need.
Pros: What can I say - it's fast, easy y to install, and runs cooler than I expected.
Just what you would expect from Intel!
Overall Review: If you want speed get one of these.
Pros: Not to large and easy to install. I installed on MB before I put the MB in chassis. If MB is already installed it might be a two person job.
It comes with additional screws so you can mount a larger fan if needed.
Quiet. It comes with a LNA to further reduce noise but I did not need it.
Cons: I had to turn it 90 degrees to clear components on the MB. Some MB's it might fit either way but I had to have the side plates to the top and bottom.
Overall Review: It's a little more expensive than the cheapest but it's excellent quality and comes with everything you need. Thermal Paste, LNA, and extra screws included.
Pros: Fast and quiet. Excellent warranty but So far I have never had to make a claim on a WD hard drive.
Cons: None. Only had them for a few weeks.
Overall Review: I have always been a WD drive fan. I am upgrading a RAID set from 2T to 4T. Faster than I expected to copy data to my new drive set.
I would recommend this hard drive to anyone needing a high quality 4T drive.
Pros: It has many nice features and is very easy to setup. Windows auto configures it for you.
The two USB3 ports are a real nice feature.
Cons: Slower than I expected. With Windows 7 and a 2TB SATA III drive it has about one fourth the transfer rate of an internal drive. It works well for my purposes as a system backup.
Overall Review: I agree the LED is unnecessarily bright. They should have designed with a ambient light sensor so it would dim in a low light level room.
I did try updating my drivers but that did not improve performance.
Pros: More speed than my old cable.
Pros: I installed two of these in my case so I could have motherboard control over my fans. They are excellent for that purpose. 90% of the time they are quite but during heavy CPU use when more airflow is needed you can hear them. If you what high airflow these are probably the best fans.
Overall Review: They come with an adapter cable so you can use a 2-wire 12v power connector. My case has a manual fan control panel and I verified that the fans work in that mode. Up to about 70% you they don’t make noise.
Pros: It works so I can use my old DVD burner in my new computer
Pros: Works perfect as keyboard extension cable.
Pros: It was easy to install and works ok
Pros: I have always liked the feel of a KeyTronic keyboard.
Overall Review: Highly recommended.
Pros: Easy to install. Perfect match with my RT-AC68U router.
Overall Review: I upgraded the driver with the latest one from ASUS.
I like the GUI interface – makes it easy to set up a new network – I am using Windows 7-64
I first tried it by just connecting the antennas to the adapter board and got max signal strength. Apparently you don’t need to antenna extension unless you have a very large house.
Pros: What can I say, they work as the are suppose to.
Overall Review: I was looking for some 18” cables with 90 degree connectors on the drive and. These are a perfect fit in my case.
