Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid case, easy to run/hide wires, plenty of room, nice appearance. Nothing on it seems cheap or flimsy. Screwholes line up with everything nicely.

I have primarily used Antec cases in the past, and will now recommend Corsairs as well.

Cons: One minor complaint--Poor documentation: not that there needs to be a lot explained in a case but nothing besides a very general "quick start" manual (a folded page) that just identifies the major components of the case. Nothing other than the same guide at their site. I specifically had questions about the front panel wires, which I am sure their support could answer, but just a few lines on the quick start about it would have been easier.

Other Thoughts: I really like the case, would buy it again.

ASUS Xonar D2 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Ultra Fidelity Sound Card with Complete Dolby/DTS Sound Technologies
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great sound, color-coded LED inputs make it easy to see what you are doing when making changes, easy installation. I am very happy with the sound both through my Monitor S2's and my Sennheiser HD250's. Music sounds great, as do movies.

The effects (although I prefer not to use) perform well.

Cons: When sound sources go silent, there is usually a little problem with some noise, but quickly fades.

I am not a fan of the enhanced settings (reverb, etc.), but not because they aren't good, just I prefer not to affect the sound. As I say above, they actually work really well.

Absolutely no technical support, as with all Asus products. I have several components from Asus, and all have worked great, luckily--but whenever I have had minor issues there is absolutely no help whatsoever, as well as a website I found cumbersome to join and navigate.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, it's a gamble buying Asus mostly due to an apparent lack of support. So far I have not had any reason to stop purchasing products from them because of the quality of the products, but that may change once something fails.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: works well with vista 64, burns fast and accurately

Cons: none i can think of

Other Thoughts: i use this as my main drive and have burned dozens of cds and dvds with no issues. I also have put these into builds I have done for others, as well as my own rig.
