Most Favorable Review

Honestly? I just like the color.

OKGEAR GC18AUBM12 1.5 ft. (18 in.) SATA 3.0 Cable with Metal Latch, Straight to Right Angle, UV Blue
OKGEAR GC18AUBM12 1.5 ft. (18 in.) SATA 3.0 Cable with Metal Latch, Straight to Right Angle, UV Blue

Pros: 6 Gpbs, 18" Not black or red.

Cons: I can't think of any.

Overall Review: I wouldn't mind seeing a "assorted color pack" of SATA cables so I could do a color based mapping of ports to drives. ;)

Has served me well

CyberPower Rackmount CPS1500AVR 1500VA 950W 6 x 5-15R Battery/Surge Protected Outlets UPS

Pros: Rack mountable, sturdy/durable

Cons: Didn't like my generator very much.

Overall Review: Has been running dutifully since spring 2009. The fans started coming on even when the unit was on line power indicating the batteries were starting to go. After replacing the batteries the unit is quiet again.

Quick Update

IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply
IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply

Pros: Just a quick update to say thanks to InWin for sending replacement latches to me (see prior review). I'd give the case 4.5 stars if could (also wish I could just edit/reply to my previous review).

Cons: N/A

Doesn't suck

IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply
IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply

Pros: o Relatively inexpensive o Fairly roomy o Drive bays pre-wired for SATA and power o Raised mobo mountings for common mount points (I needed to install one mounting for a standard ATX mobo) o Pretty lights o Largely tool-less install

Cons: The latches that hold the sides of the case in place feel a little flimsy and come off easily. It would seem my case shipped with one of these clips missing. :( The case doesn't offer much in terms of cable/wire management. A few holes but not much depth behind the motherboard. As far as I could see there was no way to route the 8 pin power cable for my mobo except in front. (mobo was ASRock Z77 Extreme4)

Overall Review: Neutral: Silly locked hatch for hot swapping drives (as others have mentioned the lock is sort of odd since removing the side of the computer is reasonably trivial No front ports for eSATA or Firewire (lack of demand?) Bottom line: I'm reasonably happy with the case but may look elsewhere next time.

Worked great for 3GS

Pros: inexpensive, convenient, & stable charging platform for my 3GS.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Only used it for charging, ended up giving it away when I upgraded to an iPhone 5

Can't beat the price.

Pros: Fits 3GS phone in a case if you take out the insert. Weighted stand has a nice heft, grip to it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Got this for under $10 and free shipping. As others have noted there is no charger include. You'll need to use the USB port on your computer or an adapter (e.g. the one that came with your phone). For the price I'm not complaining.
