Study, heavy duty, reliable.
Pros: Sturdy steel construction Strong cages, People who have issues with the slides on the top and bottom don't realize they can pinch the holding tabs to make them hold better. Plastic rails are both a blessing and a con, they are not super sturdy, but they are good, and work well. Quiet Fans, I have seen comments both ways on this, but the noctua's I have installed in my RSV-4000 are actually twice as loud as the 8 in this case. I thought my noctuas would be quieter, but I have only found they move more air. Excellent build all around, and supports SSI-EEB though they don't claim that, my S2600CP has been fully mounted with zero missing holes, or fixed standoffs. I would totally get this for all my servers, but I would like to have the quickmount cages instead. But They should be interchangeable, the 4 drive cages from my RSV-4000 Cases do fit perfectly into this one as well.
Cons: Fans with fan-headers would be great, but far from a real problem, I would rather convert from fan-header to molex than the other way around. Over all I love these cases, and would only request that they always support up to SSI-EEB and have all the supported boards listed.
Overall Review: Case is very long, make sure your rack is either 4 post, or you are willing to have it sticking out. I custom built my rack to be 36" long and it still fills the rack very well. In terms of others most of anything I want to say is already in the PRO's. One comment though - Name of the plate that the ATX hole is plugged with so I can get a proper redundant power supply for this case. Totally awesome case. Options that work: This cage is interchangeable with the current case cages: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132035 With how they are mounted, these should also work: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132037 (Hot swappable) Another suggestion is to get these Rails(If they ever come back in stock): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132033 Power supply for dual power connectors should fit if you remove the back ATX adaptor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817338061
Excellent Refurb SSD
Pros: All of the Corsair drives I've bought have lasted a long time. 2 in routers, 4 years no issues, no reallocated sectors. We'll see how long these ones last.
Cons: UEFI issues, Windows 10 doesn't seem to install, but I have limited testing on that. Works with older bootloader method.
Excellent little routers
Pros: Very snappy for the hardware that is in them Excellent updates, and on point team Excellent support
Cons: Lack of basic ports Some limitations that may be temporary with rules and such in the software
Overall Review: This router has an excellent support chain, and I would recommend it for any business.
