I LOVE IT!
Pros: Just how I like ALL my mechanical hard drives, 1TB storage, decent cache capacity, and last but not least, 7200rpm's of speed... just the way ALL mechanical and "hybrid drives" should be! I just USB 2.0 would let USB 3.0 take over in it's place, especially on Laptop PC's!
Cons: None! Great job Newegg.com!
Overall Review: If I had to add anything, it'd be a suggestion to Newegg. Here it is: Y'all need to test your inventory before you ship it out, not saying my hard drive was bad, not at all, but I'm just giving you all some critical feedback and helping your business out before something of THAT nature ever happens!
Pros: What Pros? The only two known brands of external enclosures for laptop and desktop hard drives I trust are Sabrent and INEO!
Cons: Instructions suck! Not only that, but Vantec needs to pull in some help from Sabrent and/or INEO to aid them in design and function! The only thing good about Vantec is their external enclosures for optical drives, that's all the good they are!
Overall Review: Vantec, shove it up yours! Sabrent and INEO, superb job guys, y'all are the greatest!
SHAME ON YOU ICY DOCK!
Pros: It's great if you can find a 9.5 Optical Disk Drive or just use this for it's 3.5" External Card Reader/Floppy Drive bay! It's Black! It's easy to install if you have common sense and a brain!
Cons: Here's why I'm leaving just 3-egg rating, 12.7 size optical disk drives are more of a standard size for most Slim DVD Burners, but ICY DOCK alienates people who expect this to support that standard 12.7 size Slim ODD, and this is my beef with this item! It's nice if people just so happen to have a non-standard 9.5mm Slim ODD(Optical Disk Drive), but to those who expect a one-size-fits-all Slim DVD Burner, then it's not so considerate nor convenient! SHAME ON YOU ICY DOCK!
Overall Review: It's a great product if you are using it for the 3.5" bay, but those jerks at ICY DOCK should have made this compatible for the standard 12.7 size Slim Optical Disk Drive, and NOT the non-standard 9.5 sized one that's HARD-TO-FIND!
I have no regrets in purchasing this Antec product! This is going to save me SO MUCH desk space!
Pros: The Pros are in it's specifications and/or hardware configuration!
Cons: I only wish it had more than one 80mm case fan mount, like it would have been convenient to have two(2) 60mm case fan mounts in the rear to pull warm air out, at the least Antec!
Overall Review: Antec needs to make an alternate version of this model chassis with the aforementioned modifications/tweaks that I pointed out in the Cons section! And I don't give a rat's rear-end about the whole non-solicited-idea-policy that all companies/manufacturers have, that policy's getting old and makes all of them sound redundant and alienating towards people who have great practical PC-Hardware ideas and care about making Antec, other companies and/or manufacturers in order to make better, cooler products! So if anyone who works at Antec comes across this review and reads the WHOLE review, I kindly ask that you talk the CEO into giving me, a concerned buyer and fellow PC-builder, a phone call about that annoying bullcrap about that policy that says my ideas, solicited or not(when are they EVER solicited), may not be taken seriously or put to practical use on an existing product, the Antec VSK2000-U3 Black Mini-ITX/MicroATX Computer Chassis! In the meantime, the term "chassis" sounds better and is a more deserving term than "case", calling it a computer case makes it sound as belittling as the term "Hard Drive Case", and the more deserving term for that is "Hard Drive Enclosure", by the way!
Great brand. Works Great for salvaged Slim DVD-Writer drives. Great Modern design!
Pros: It's Black. It gives my Slim DVD-Writer Drive a home. It's easy to install. And if you don't understand the instructions, then you don't think as much as I do!
Overall Review: I finally got my slim DVD burner drive to come out by itself, you need to apply just one screw to to rear left side where the enclosure meets the rear left side hole of the slim optical drive inside! And if you can't figure that out then you are more dumb than a Dodo(Doe-Doe) bird!
Could be a bit brighter, but at least it's functional and is the look I'm going for!
Pros: It's Apevia, and it's one of the rare models that has that black border-thingy, the CF12SL-BGN! It's Green LED! It's 120mm and it comes with extra case fan screws, and the grill to protect you from possibly accidentally chopping off your fingers, you just have to reinstall the grill on the opposite side of where the air will be pulled out from the chassis or pulled in should you install these in the front fan mounts!
Cons: Apevia should keep making case fans just like this one, but in different LED colors, but Brighter and only have a 3-pin, 'cause I use the 4-pin power cables for more important things like IDE/PATA ODD's!
Overall Review: All in all, I'm quite relieved that Newegg.com carries this model, and others of the same design as this one in stock!

When consulting with the tracking number provided, it NEVER SAYS "Out For Delivery" even though it says the item, whether it be part 1 or part 2 of the whole order, is to be delivered TODAY (October 8th, 2021) and it's already 10:47pm EDT here in Dacula, GA 30019! So... What do you and freaking FedEx have to say about THAT!? Sincerely Unsatisfied, Michael Simkins
NEVER AGAIN FROM SCREWY CHINA!
I should not have to wait THIS FREAKING LONG for any product, and I found the same product elsewhere and within the good ole' USA at the same or lower price, but have not ordered it yet until I get my FULL REFUND from screwy China! If I had my own country to take care for and govern, and I had my pick of allies on a list, and China came up, and all the other allies I could trade with and NO risk of being double-crossed, I'd skip CHINA and ally myself with more honest and like-minded allies to trade and be friends with! I WILL NOT WAIT 2 FREAKING WEEKS FOR A PRODUCT WHEN I CAN FIND THE SAME THING HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND ONLY WAIT 4 TO 6 DAYS FOR DELIVERY!
I LOVE IT!
I cannot believe it took me a whole month of searching for the right PC chassis in a copy-paper White color before I researched and saw the videos and video reviews on YouTube and looking at all the outer and inner photos at every angle before settling on this Raijintek Agos White Tower Chassis! Sure I ended up throwing the stupid tool-less optical drive fasteners, but as for the rest of it... I LOVE IT!
