Antec NSK4100 Black SGCC steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs It's possible for a product to be inexpensive *and* smartly designed. 03/22/2016

This review is from: Antec NSK4100 Black SGCC steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Given the price, none, really.

Cons: It's possible for a product to be inexpensive and smartly designed. That's not what happened in this case. It's no better than an el cheapo case, but add $20 for the Antec badge, I guess. I've downgraded my valuation on that name.

Other Thoughts: Even at $20 less than what I paid, I cannot recommend this case over some other random junk case from an unknown manufacturer. It's sad, really, that Antec has let his crud out under their name. I hope my client appreciates that I literally bled building their system.

[ Support UASP and 8TB Drives ] ORICO Tool Free USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive Enclosure case for 3.5inch  SATA HDD and SSD -Black (3588US3)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This inexpensive case is unobtrusive and seems to do the job. I'm getting 60 MB/s read and 120 MB/s write out of a Seagate ST3000DM001.

Cons: The case is pretty cheesy. It does not require tools, but I'm not sure how long these plastic tabs will hold out. It is already a looser fit from having opened it once to install a hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I wish I could find a simply designed and quality built USB3<->SATAIII case.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: These drives perform flawless up until the point where they choke.

Cons: Of the 9 drives, of this model, that I have purchased in the last 2 years, 5 of them have failed.

Other Thoughts: Seagate and the associated resellers have been very good about replacing these failed drives, but the rate of failure is just too high to recommend this unit.
