Most Favorable Review

amazing value for the money

iStarUSA D-214-MATX Black Steel 2U Rackmount Chassis 2 External 5.25" Drive Bays
iStarUSA D-214-MATX Black Steel 2U Rackmount Chassis 2 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: Great Price excellent craftsmanship

Cons: Tons of screws. Everything is held down with multiple screws. It would have been very nice to see a tool less design. This is the only reason it lost a star.

Overall Review: I was worried this case would be made with thin aluminum or still, but to my surprise I found it to be made with thick steel which is very nice. Overall this is a fantastic case that I would recommend. I will be buying another one to put my pfsense server build into.

DOA

Mushkin Enhanced Helix-L M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDHL1TB-D8
Mushkin Enhanced Helix-L M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDHL1TB-D8

Pros: None

Cons: Drive arrived DOA

Overall Review: I saw the negative reviews about dead drives and figured it was a small percent of them happening and that I would be good. I was wrong. Drive was dead on arrival. I have had good experiences with mushkin ram, but I would advise you to say away from their ssds. I should have stuck with Samsung.

Best carplay radio for the price

Pros: Apple carplay works very well Screen is responsive hands free calling and siri work as expected

Cons: Can be a little sluggish when hitting the home button

Overall Review: This is a fantastic radio for the price. I would recommend it for anyone looking for an inexpensive radio that has carplay built in.

DOA

MSI AM1I AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Was cheap.

Cons: Board was DOA. I've had issues in the past with MSI but thought I'd give this one a try. Big mistake. Newegg was helpful as they always are and issued me an RMA. I ordered me an Asus board which is what I should have ordered in the first place.

Overall Review: Don't waste your time or money. Spend a little more and get the Asus.

Pros: Price was good

Cons: The drive died after 2 months of use. Using Parted Magic it shows the drive is in pre-failure, and it will not boot any operating system.

Overall Review: DO NOT BUY
