Pros: Case works well. The removable disk pack is very useful. I am using as a portable computer for the heavy computing jobs I do as a consultant all over the world. Also have an Antec Minuet case that is very similar. Reversed case fan on both to blow air into the case. This dropped the CPU temp from 35 to 28 degC for the CPU below.
Cons: Needs more SATA connectors on the PSU. I like the Antec DVD access better because the housing doesn't extend as far into the case, so I couldn't put a BlueRay HD unit in this case, but the exterior looks a bit cooler on this case.
Overall Review: I have the following installed: GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core Processor 8 GB CORSAIR DOMINATOR DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 2 ea WD 1TB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drives 1 ea Fujitsu 80 GB 2.5 inch HD 1 ea LG DVD/CD SATA I use a SKB 20"x16" ID hardside wheeled case to transport including an Acer 20" LCD monitor, and I remove the disk housing and hand carry the disks in a Plano handgun case when flying.
It's a shame
Pros: Nice thin package with high resolution screen, and lots of usb/thunderbolt/hdmi ports. I7 cpu. Supports a 4K external monitor. I use a Roku 43". Not sure why anyone would buy one of those single purpose monitors at a higher price. Haven't tried two monitors yet using the hub below. Upgraded the 512 GB NVMe SSD to 2 TB without a problem by making a recovery USB.
Cons: No RJ45 lan port, but can use a VAVA type hub with one, and that works. 8 GB memory is hard wired so you can't upgrade. Should be at least 16 GB for an I7 cpu. Otherwise you only really need an I5 equivalent. That's why the 3 eggs. Keyboard is hard to read in a brighter lighted area where the backlit doesn't help. Fortunately I can touch type. But I use external mouse and keyboard anyway with the hub, which leaves the USB3 ports for other things. What a nice, powerful computer. Too bad it's only 8 GB memory. Only good for a portable office, and I use a lot of CPU/Memory power.
Overall Review: Great except for memory.
Cons: This is supposed to be a 12 TB SSD. When connected it shows 12.3 TB in both windows and AOMEI. But when I try to write a 6 TB directory it says it needs 4 TB more. This is only a 2 TB flash drive that is doctored to look like a 12 TB exFAT flash drive disk. When writing a smaller file it writes at about 20 Kbytes per second. This is also a very old flash drive. Not what was advertised.
Overall Review: Looks like a scam to me.
