Nice little case

Pros: It's good looking and blends in well with my A/V Receiver as an HTPC. I put in an Intel MOBO with integrated HDMI Video. SSD boot drive, 3.5" Second drive, Standard size Blu-Ray Drive, and a card reader in the floppy bay.

Cons: The only Con is that you have to use low-profile memory. The standard memory with heatsinks touch the bottom of the ODD. Not enough to take an egg away.

Overall Review: Plan your assembly carefully. Everything is a tight fit. Leave the optical drive for last or it will just be in the way. Mount your hard drive(s) first, then the MOBO, run all your cabling, and then mount the optical drive.

Failed after two days use

Pros: I bought this drive in December, but I only put it into to use yesterday and today it is failing. Newegg says that they can´t give me an RMA because 30 days have passed and I know have to go to the manufacturer for warranty replacement. Way to go Newegg! That´s how you treat a good customer! B.T.W., I see that this unit has been discontinued, probably because of the piece of junk that it is. I shpould have suspected that there was a reason for the low Price.

Cons: What else can I say? It failed after two days. It's Junk!

Overall Review: It's easier for me to just junk the drive and buy a new one (not Seagate), than to go through the hassle of dealing with the manufacturer. Even though I bought it over 30 days ago, it's only been in use for the last two. Newegg should step up and RMA the unit.

Don't buy this unit. Arrived DOA. Looked repackaged

Pros: None. Unit was DOA

Cons: Unit was DOA. Had water damage on PC board. The unit looked like it had been repackaged. Gave it 1 Egg because you would not let me give it none.
