Pros: It was a great hdd. It housed movies from my media server. I am not using raid on it.
Cons: I started getting I/O errors from it. S.M.A.R.T. didn't show any issues. I connected it to 2 different computers with different cables & kept getting the I/O errors. Wasn't able to get the movies off it, since it was to far gone. It died right after the warranty.
Other Thoughts: A 4tb took the place of this drive and it is a seagate.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have this in a server. It is used for the boot ssd. I use it with Ubuntu. No issues setting it up. Been using it for over 2 years in a 24/7 server
Cons: I didn't have luck getting the USB 3.0 to work, but that might be a driver issue with Ubuntu.
Other Thoughts: I really don't have need for the USB 3.0 side of it, I got it mainly for the sata connections since I only needed 2 & it was cheap at time of purchase. I don't do anything heavy on the ssd, so I cant comment on the speed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I got this to house my server that runs 24/7, I recently installed another fan in the front & it was easier then other cases. This cases houses everything I have put in it. Granted I don't have a video card. I use the built in apu. It didn't come dented or damaged. Had this case over 2 years.
Cons: Had some trouble doing cable management, but I think that is me. First case I had that has cable management.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a no frill looking pc that will sent under a desk or closet, then this is the case you want. I don't use the 5.25" external drives. The server has no need for them. Will put a 3.5 to 5.25 adapter there soon.READ FULL REVIEW
