Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl w/ USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I actually own the titanium gray version of this which is discontinued, but wanted to leave my praise for this great case all the same. This thing is incredibly quiet even when gaming, in fact it's nearly as silent as my old 2010 iMac which is saying something. The minimalist aesthetic is gorgeous and looks great under any desk, no need to be embarrassed about a gaudy gaming rig when you have company over. Cable management was a dream when building my setup and all my components have perfect airflow.

Cons: Despite being called a 'mid tower', this thing is pretty large. Not full-tower large, but bigger than I was expecting. It's also pretty wide, I'm guessing to allow room for cable management behind the motherboard plate. My other complaint? This sucker is *heavy*, mostly due to sound dampening materials, but don't harbor any thoughts of lugging your rig back and forth between bedroom and living room.

Other Thoughts: One of the latches on the front fan cover grille was broken when I received the case, but Fractal's support quickly responded and Fedex'ed me a couple replacements. I basically had to destroy the old latch to get it out, but at least I don't have to worry about the new one going anywhere!

SAPPHIRE 100352-2L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card really straddles the price/performance sweet spot, more expensive cards don't have dramatically higher benchmarks and this will handle anything you can throw at it at 1080P and ultra settings. Plus, AMD's Never Settle Reloaded promo is an amazing deal (especially since they just added FC3: Blood Dragon) and goes a long way toward justifying the expense of this card - a powerhouse card plus three brand new AAA games for ~$300? Not bad at all.

Cons: This is mostly negated for me since I have a mostly silent case, but I have noticed a bit of coil whine under load when the side panel's off. Also, this card is *huge* - gaming cases won't have a problem with it, but if you have a smaller case make sure to take measurements before purchasing.

4 out of 5 eggs Solid touchpad for Win 8 03/10/2013

This review is from: Logitech T650 910-003057 USB RF Wireless Touchpad

Pros: As a recent convert from Macs to PCs, a great touchpad experience was something I always missed. However, this touchpad combined with Windows 8's gesture support makes Windows 8 much more usable, especially in a desktop setting.

Cons: It's expensive. Somehow this costs $10 more than Apple's own Magic Trackpad. This touchpad is usable for certain games (Civilization, Sim City, etc.) but it's mostly terrible as a gaming device. If you're into gaming, make sure to have a gamepad or be prepared to also hang onto your old mouse in combination with this touchpad.
