D-Link DCS-5029L HD 720P Pan/Tilt  Night Vision Motion Detection 2 Way Audio Wireless  mydlink enabled Surveillance Cloud  IP Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Full range of motion
- Wireless and Ethernet capable
- Night vision!
- Feels like sturdy construction

Cons: - You can see red coming from the infrared LEDs. It would have been nice if they were completely "invisible", otherwise making the camera truly hidden in the dark is a little more difficult.
- When viewing the camera live from a browser (On same network), maybe its just with the streaming, but the quality seems to suffer. I can't find any decent setting of resolution that is smooth. 1080 resolution, it looks like maybe 5 frames a second. 720 resolution about 10 FPS. Again, maybe its just because it is trying to stream the feed in real time, and maybe it would be smooth playback if I actually recorded instead, but at this point in time, I am generally disappointed in its quality.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I am just using it wrong, which is why I only deducted one egg, to give room for my ignorance. This is my first network camera I've played with, so I do hope it is just me being stupid.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Its RAM. WYSIWYG* applies in its fullest.

*What you see is what you get.

Kinda hard to write a review for something like this. I mean I ordered RAM, and I got RAM. Exactly what was expected. Price was good, albeit higher then it used to be a couple of years ago, I once got 16GB for $65, but considering the current average price of RAM these days, Its hard to complain with this particular set. As far as 8GB sets go, this one isn't bad at all.

Cons: No choice of colors. Would be cool if we could select from a range of colored heat spreaders, but what can you do...

Other Thoughts: Comes with a cool GSkill sticker. I love those kinds of stickers. Now it looks like my Nvidia Shield tablet has an i5 and some GSkill RAM in it. XD

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Looks great, and feels like solid construction.
- Plenty of room for almost everything (Ill get to that*).
- Aside from the side panels, the top panel removes, allowing you to get your hands in to those trickier places.
- Front fan dust filter. I've never had a case with a dust filter before, so I am excited for that alone.
- TONS of room for power cables. Having the PSU in the back compartment means I was FINALLY able to get good looking cable management for once. If I had a modular PSU, I could do better, but as is, I was able to hide all unused cables very easily.
- Includes 2.5' drive rack standard. My normal 2.5' to 3.5' drive adapters wouldn't align my SSD correctly with the included sata ports on the 3.5' drive mount, so this feature alone saved me from having to buy some special adapter for one, let alone my 3 SSDs. So major kudos on that.
- Side panel with windows and NO fan blocking the view into the case.
- Almost everything, just shy of the motherboard itself, has easy to grip finger screws. Im talking the side panels, the vent covers, the adjustable part of the PSU mount, and even the expansion card slots.
- No screws necessary for the 5.25" bays.**

Cons: - *One tiny issue I had with the case. It has 2x3.5" bays on the bottom with sata connections already in place. This itself is fantastic, but the bay on the left side (Looking in) has some issue with the cables and the adjustable PSU mount getting in the way. You can just bend the cables, but it feels like I am bending them TOO much to make them fit around the PSU mount.
- The front fans include a dust filter, but the top does not. It would have been nice to have included a filter there as well given it is basically direct access for dust to fall into the case.
- **The 5.25" drive bays require you to orient the drives a specific way. (Tray opens, you put the disc in on the left side, when looking at the front of the case). This isn't really an issue, but I was trying to put my DVD drive on the other way and was wondering why it wouldn't click in till I really looked at how the snap pegs worked. And because they were metal, they scratched up the sides of my DVD drive. Minor issue as that will never be seen from the outside.
- I'm throwing this in the cons, but it doesn't really detract from the case at all. But given the case and all of its insides are black, the inclusion of some LED fans would have been nice to illuminate things. The case is great for for the cable management impaired like myself, so being able to show that off would have been nice. But nothing a few extra bucks cant resolve. So again, not really a ding on the overall case, just wanted to point that out.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I couldn't be more happy with the case. I would defiantly consider getting another If I needed another case. It looks like they could nicely stack on top of one another.

And for anyone looking, I just want to point out that YES, this is a wide case. So measure twice before getting it.

One final note: Double check who is selling the case. I know Newegg doesn't do a good job of pointing out when they are not the actual seller, but I strongly suggest NOT buying from " antonline.com". I paid about $20 more than I should have because it was sold through them, and from what I gathered after looking into it, they tend to overcharge on a lot of things.
