Re: I give you the ANTEC SOLO II

I think I still prefer the SOLO to the SOLO II. I like the removable PSU support bar, but would prefer to have an easier opening front door, and more external drive facades. This is fine if all I'm going to have is a DVD and Bluray burner pair, but if I add any A/V front inputs or additional front-c...

Bought 4 F3EG 2TB....

My subjective opinion on the F3EG. I bought four drives this past week and hooked them up over the weekend. One I'm using as unattached backup, while the other three are being run in RAID. Two of the drives have greater vibration than my 500GB blue Caviar, while the other two have less. [The three d...

Not worried about cooling -- if it gets hot, add the front fans.... I am worried about the dust/fingerprint mag...

I'm getting tired of waiting for the 550W Gold model. Just noticed that the S12D-750 is $115 at newegg and the 850W version is $120. Nice. Best I found X650 was at excaliberpc. From what I can see there, looks like the "Gold" premium is $20 (a bit more, really, considering the downsize in watt rati...

Will the 550LT ever show up? It's been >7 months since I started looking for it. I'd like to echo my interest in the answer to that question. I have a similar system I'm building to Hammer's (smaller video card, though -- and I'm putting it in a case :)) I'd like to have the Gold/silent/modular X65...
