Got the drive today. I will definitely say as for SSD casing, it is by far the worst I've had and I've had many SSD's. The bare aluminum is all blotchy. Thankfully it is the bottom so won't be seen in most cases.

both of mine will be here today, I may have to commission a family member to pick it up from the post office though...darn working until 10, other than that though, I have to wait for my order from performance Pcs to get here so that I can wire them up nicely, although i MIGHT have enough molex-> sata adapters to do it quick and dirty

Anybody else find the Newegg Visa verification process takes forever? I know it was a long weekend, but my card is already officially "visa verified" so it sure as hell shouldn't have taken until today. Damn thing's not even packed yet, let alone shipped!!!!!
yes it has been taking a long time in the last 2 months minimum of 2 days to verify

And as I predicted..... 1 day to get from NJ to Concord ON, with updates every 3-4 hrs, and now it's sitting there for 24 hrs..... don't know if that's where the warehouse is, or if it's actually moving but not being updated on the servers.

got mine in, eventually mounted *the silverstone adapter I'm using is just a little bit offsized for my tool less clips, so I had to use screws, and hope I torqued them down enough that they would clear the cage....still fighting with getting them aligned *just grabbed a win7 repair disc*

Grrrrrr..........

Ever had one of those delivery experiences that would ensure a first-time order would be the last ever????

Of course the package arrives in Moncton friday afternoon, so not in the system until this morning..... moncton doesn't have a UPS delivery person so they contract out to Puro.... check the tracking this morning expecting to see "on truck for delivery" and instead see "please contact UPS, postcard has been sent to receiver"......

Call UPS and they tell me that puro has it and it's being held for pickup (about 45 minutes round trip for me), I asked why nobody attempted to deliver it and they had puro call me.... turns out the shipping label was "damaged" and left off one of the #s of my street address. Fine.... but if they couldn't pull the address off of the label, HTH are they going to send me a postcard letting me know the issue????

So far.... I ordered it on the 1'st and best would be me picking it up on the 13'th.... I could have had something shipped from hong kong in that time.........
