This review is from: NZXT Tempest 210 CA-TP210-01 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Fits any ATX board with plenty of room, good cable management, plenty of airflow possibilities for gamer, painted interior, looks nice. Good price.
Cons: Mobo screws not the flanged type--heads are too small. Front grille has tabs that get in the way of 5.25 devices--have to be trimmed. Plastic top cover mounting screw boss was broken off on arrival; glued it back but found it so difficult to run the screw in from the underside, I just glued the thing on. There are no blocking covers available for unused fan grilles--had to make my own and tape on with Gorilla tape. Not everyone needs 4 case fans. Front indicator LEDs leak light through USB ports, audio plugs, and between front grille and top cover--had to block with foam. Dropping one egg for all this.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a good deal and I would consider buying another one. I feel it's not worth spending arm and leg on a better case, and would rather put the cash into the internals.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Koutech IO-FPM220 3.5" Floppy Drive & Multi Card Reader Front Panel
Pros: Having done some cursory research, I wished to avoid a low quality unit and one that would not read floppies written on ancient drives. I had an old floppy with some files written on a 2004 floppy drive and they read perfectly. I was also impressed with the quality of the unit overall. Moreover, my machine had an internal USB port so I did not need the included cover plate with the hole and grommet. Removal was easy because they slotted the cover eliminating the need to cut the wire or cover. Now if I switch machines I still have an unbutchered plate and a solid, unspliced cable. So between these three attributes and the reasonable price, I have given the 5 eggs.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
