Ok for a budget kit. 03/09/2011
This review is from: VIZO VIZO-SCB-BL Cable Binding Kit (UV Blue)
I do a lot of mods, and I generally do almost all the sleeving myself. I've used high quality, high density sleeving and bargain bin stuff and everything in between. Some easy to work with, some difficult. This kit falls somewhere in the middle if you take price into consideration. So it is about average quality for the price I guess you'd say. But they don't get much cheaper than this! (that should tell you something right there.)
I don't think you could sleeve a whole power supply with this. Especially the included shrink wrap is minimal.
Certainly not a whole case with all the bells and whistles.
UV brightness is not that great. The colors in general will not impress anyone, they are washed out and bland. In particular the shrink wrap is almost a gray color. The included tie wraps are some of the cheapest I've ever seen, most of the ones I attempted to use simply broke apart before I could completely tie them. I threw them out. For the price, what can you expect. The kit was serviceable.
The sleeving frays easily. The density is not very good, it is quite easy to see the cables underneath so for a system under a great deal of scrutiny, I wouldn't recommend it..
But for budget builders, I definitely would.
It is very easy to work with, and it stretches farther than the higher density sleeving. Most kits I get are about 2:1, meaning 1/4 sleeve will almost fit around a 1/2" plug. This stuff is more like 3:1. Also means it will stretch a bit too far on the end and fray like mad. Use a hot knife to cut.
This makes it easy for folks who don't want to tear apart all their connectors just to sleeve their PC.
It seems a little shorter than some kits, I don't think one would be enough if you have a gaming system, lots o fans, etc. I'd buy two if I was sleeving the whole PC with it.
Recommended for amateur and budget builders.
