This review is from: Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Pros: Xbox 360 controllers are the most supported gamepads in PC gaming.
Fairly ergonomic design.
Cons: Could have better battery life.
Other Thoughts: I own 5 of these sets, and the most recent was purchased through newegg market vendor "Funtech" which is based out of china. The controller I received is definitely a Chinese clone. Given it is a very good copy, but its not the official MS product I though I was ordering. Nonetheless, the wireless receiver was detected immediately by my PC and aside from a few rough spots around the edge of the controller its a near perfect replica.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sanyo 50" LED-LCD HDTV - FVF5044
Pros: The price for this TV was simply a great deal. Regardless of being a refurbished item it came in a factory box with the remote and all manuals.
Setup was simple and easy. I had the stand installed on the unit and connected it to my HTPC within 5 minutes of opening the box. The PC detected the screen correctly as soon as it was connected.
The screen is bright and the picture is very clear. I am writing this review from this screen right now sitting approximately 10' away @ 1080P with the firefox default font.
I just got done watching a few various animes that I know have extremely vibrant colors in them and the colors come through nicely.
Cons: Speakers are pretty quiet.
Roku stick not included in box its a coupon code.
No batteries for the remote.
Other Thoughts: My particular unit did not include the coupon code for the free roku. Not a big deal since I am using a HTPC. As this is a refurbished unit newegg does not guarantee that all listed accessories will be included.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is decently stylish and very well priced.
The compact form factor is great and it fits standard ATX PSUs.
Includes thumb screws for the side panels.
Front IO cables are plenty long enough.
Packaged in a thick box with plenty of form fitting foam.
Cons: As is expected on a case in this price point its made from thin stamped steel panels which results in some sharp edges on the inside.
Its a bit flimsy but its not weak enough to be concerned with it.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this case so that I could pass my wifes old GA-A75M + A8-3870K APU setup along to my brother inlaw when I upgraded her to a 2500K and it worked perfectly. The cost of the case made it ideal to gift my old hardware to a relative.
I would have preferred a 120MM rear exhaust and side intake but you cant expect the world when your pricing a case at this level.
Overall if your building on a budget and looking for a nice looking M-ATX case this is an excellent choice.
