Pros: Front panel looks cool and it has one USB 3.0 connection in the front.
Cons: - Power supply: HAD TO BUY A NEW POWER SUPPLY!! My MOBO has an 8 pin 12v socket for the CPU. The power supply did not have an 8 pin socket, only a 4 pin and if you buy this to add lots of equipment for gaming and cooling NOT ENOUGH CABLES.
- Build Quality: The cover for the expansion slots was slightly bent and there's a very cheesy attempt at dust filtration, you won't know this buy looking at the pictures. The front panel comes off too easily 'in my opinion'.
Other Thoughts: NOTE: This case is great if you building a computer for Grandma or Grandpa - a cheap motherboard with a cheap low voltage Processor, one DVD drive, and a HDD. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BUILDING A GAMING PC. I'm building this for my kids, although I'm P!$$3D off I have to spend more money on a PS when one came with this, it'll work out in the end BUT, as stated before, you get what you pay for.
I've been building PCs for a long time, this is not a brand I'll be going with in the future because when I do a build for someone (not my kids), quality is what keeps them coming back or gets me more business. Of course a lot of research based on their needs and budget factors into my decision making, then I give them three options. Personally, I'm a fan of Cougar brand equipment for towers - just my opinion.
This review is from: DVD Replacement Drive for Xbox 360 Dg-16d2s Philips
Pros: NONE, see below
Cons: I was going to replace the board from my old xbox 360 dvd drive and when I opened this one up, I found the board on the new drive is busted and jury rigged. Obviously used or something. Hope the return goes okay :/ They must think that no one would bother looking inside the drive...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I upgraded from a 22" Chime monitor, so this one seemed much bigger at the time, now I'm used to the size. I am a photographer and the colors on here is what I see on photos, so that's a plus. It's also really cool because it goes up down, left, right, and rotates (good for editing photos of people standing. I also do work in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and this monitor works really well with the colors I use for those programs.
Cons: The only con I have and the reason for not giving 5 eggs is the fact that there is a light that goes around the frame of the monitor, as if the lighting were on the edges. It's hard to explain, but it's only noticeable when watching a movie and dark scenes. I'm wondering if I'm the only one since I didn't see anyone else complaining of that.
Other Thoughts: Wish I had the money for two more, for gaming purposes. Yes, I game in my free time. :DREAD FULL REVIEW
