This review is from: LOGISYS Computer ML12GN LED Super Bright Sunlight Stick
Pros: They are very bright green lights, I have an Enthoo Pro with a black tint on the side window and the extra brightness helps illuminate the components through the Tint. They were easy to install, I used command strips at the ends of the tubes and they haven't moved since I installed them, and the molex connector worked fine.
Cons: Just to be clear, I bought two of the LED sticks and have been using them both for the same amount of time. One mounted horizontally on the top of the window, one mounted vertically along the drive bays. After 6 months of use one of the sections of LEDs (3 leds) began to flash. Two weeks later that section of 3 LEDs died. Now after 6 months 4 sections of 3 LEDS are dead and one section is flashing. So half the lights are dead and I don't expect the rest to last long, also now I can barely see into my case.
Other Thoughts: I've read that LEDs are expected to last 50000 hours and LED strips should last at least 10000 hrs, which is at least a year. I might have gotten a bad batch, but for the price I payed for the LEDs I would expect them to last longer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love this case, I didn't even need a case but decided my old one looked like a cheap toy with abysmal functionality compared to the Enthoo Pro. I watched hours of youtube reviews on cases and found this one to be the best value and performance. I use air cooling, and love all the fan mount locations and dust filters. The cable management is perfect, I have a non-modular PSU and I can hide all my cables behind the motherboard tray. The fan controller works great with asus Fan Expert 2, I have 8 fans in it running through PWM controls and I can barely tell its on. I put in 2 super bright green LED sunlight sticks and it looks awesome through the tinted side window.
Cons: Fitting a top 200mm fan is a bit tricky. I bought the Phanteks fan that comes with the case and it fits like a glove. However none of the screws provided work, the screw holes are smaller thread then standard fan screws and the provided screws aren't long enough. Not a problem though, I used a zip ties to replace the screws and it very sturdy.
A few of the thumb screws were loose and some fell out and were rolling around in the case, it wasn't a problem to put them back in place.
Other Thoughts: If you are even considering a case in the $50-$175 range I wouldn't look any further unless you don't like its aesthetics. The only improvement would be to ramp up the size to a super tower for people that are pure enthusiast that wouldn't even be looking at a case in this price range.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If your looking at dash cams you have probably heard of the G1W, it is the flagship of 1080p inexpensive dash cams. I was able to place it behind my rear view mirror and I hard wired it into my fuse box. I don't even have to think about it, it turns on when I start the car and record everything until I turn it off. Video looks great during day.
Cons: Video at night doesn't capture low light areas well. Mount connector to dash cam seems fragile so I just take it off the window when I want to remove it. Battery is garbage, but I don't use it. Had to buy a microsd, bought a 32gb card that cost me half as much as the cam.READ FULL REVIEW
