This review is from: Antec P280 Black Super Mid Tower Computer Case
+Sturdy side panels
+Removable dust filters
+Matte, textured surface is nice
+Silicon feet are effective at reducing vibration
+Plenty of space for hard drive storage, installation is easy
Cons: -Cheap plastic hard drive cage rattles without additional damping
-Cheap plastic dust filters rattle without additional damping
-Cheap fans make whirring noise at low RPMs
-Cheap fan controller hub is a burden
-Acoustic insulation is non-existent
-Front magnetic door is flimsy
Other Thoughts: *Knocked the rating once because it advertises itself as a 'quiet' computing case and is not.
*Knocked the rating once again because the most attractive features are subpar.
*Cheap, flimsy plastic components at this price is inexcusable.
*Not worth it unless you can get it for 2/3 the price.
Pros: +color representation is very good, but not perfect.
+blacks are about as close to black as you can expect from this price point.
+auto color configuration was very close to the best color settings, only slightly warmer.
+LED back-lighting is clean and even.
+included stand is fully adjustable. I had purchased an 'Ergotron Neo-Flex' stand as a precaution, and was pleasantly surprised that it was not needed. Now a co-worker can have a better stand, huzzah.
+no dead pixels.
+built-in USB HUB works well, if that kind of thing appeals to you.
Cons: -slight color discoloration off-axis from left or right in landscape orientation (apparent but not terribly noticeable in portait orientation).
-looking from the bottom of the display upwards, there is no noticeable discoloration; looking from the top-down, however, discoloration is very apparent. Seeing as how these translate to left/right while in portrait orientation, this may affect how you can position these displays.
Other Thoughts: *this is the first week review. I'll probably write a follow-up after three or four months to report on durability.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mionix Propus 380 Gaming Mouse Pad
Pros: + The pad has maintained its ability to cling to many surfaces of varying textures. Don't get dust on the bottom, as this will reduce grip.
+ Even with wear, the pad looks the same as the day it was delivered, which is snappy.
+ Tracks beautifully with Logitech and Razer laser and optical mice.
Cons: - After a little over a month of use for 4-6 hours per day, some balding on the surface has caused the pad to feel less comfortable than a slip of printer paper.
Other Thoughts: * For the price of the pad, I would have expected it to last longer than it did. Too bad these things don't come with warranties.READ FULL REVIEW
