BitFenix Shinobi Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs I didn't realize that I would like it 06/28/2013

This review is from: BitFenix Shinobi Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I barely looked at the specs and the reviews of this case. When I got the case, I thought nothing of it. When I opened up the box, I was like, "I love this. Why didn't I used this for my main PC." 1) I love the plastic that they use on the top. It isn't plastic that makes you thing it's aluminium and not plastic. It doesn't trick you on that. 2) The case comes nicely apart with extra screws for your wondrous pieces to fit together. 3) The case felt intuitive to put all my hardware in (maybe I just spend too much time building and not much using).

Cons: The only con is that screwing on the standoffs for the motherboard was a pain. There wasn't much documentation for installing the motherboard in the case. The case does not come with easy handles for mobile carrying. Certain screws will not screw into the standoff.

My main complaint is that it doesn't have the best documentation. Otherwise, I'm still in love with bitfenix (even if their hardware might be more expensive in terms of price point to features).

Very basic included fan. I would like to see a 4-pin fan for exhaust rather than 3-pin but what can you expect?

Other Thoughts: Have fun with this chassis.

StarTech S25SLOTR 2.5in SATA Removable Hard Drive Bay for PC Expansion Slot
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is a brilliant tool for tech pros. I can imagine using this for popping in and out SSD's for main rigs or setting up backup using 2.5" drives. Right now, I put this in my main server and plopping in 2.5" drives for Spinrite and Dban to run their magic on them. I wish They came in 3.5" flavors because I would love them even more!

Cons: A little gimicky opening mechanism. I wish it use the PCIe lan for data/power instead of sata power/sata cables. It's a great idea but poorly implemented.

Other Thoughts: I love it. It's exciting

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: If you want a cheap SSD to replace your slow HDD's this is literally the next best thing to buying the 840s or intel's expensive SSDs. I find that this size is perfect for owning an OS while still not purchasing expensive SSD's

Cons: I haven't found any cons Supposedly the reliability isn't too great but I found it usable and without OS issues. Running benchmarks, the speed's are as fast but I purchased a refurbished drive so I'm content.
