Corsair Obsidian Series 250D (CC-9011047-WW) Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Houses full size ATX power supplies, Great implementation of HDD and SSD cages that are easily accessible from the rear, Can accept large GPU's, GPU gets plenty of air as it sits right up against a vent, Decent amount of cable routing options, Dust filters are well implemented and are easily accessible, Overall very clean and aesthetically pleasing to look at case thats easy to build in

Cons: Hard drive retention clips are very weak, mine broke, but not worth docking an egg. Fairly large for a mITX case. Other than that I have no complaints

Other Thoughts: I built this as a living room HTPC/Fully capable gaming rig. This was a very fun and rewarding build to do. I was able to fit a Powercolor PCS+ r9 290 inside the case with a little coaxing, but thats a 300+mm card!!!!
4770k at 4.6ghz
ASUS Z97i PLUS mITX motherboard
Corsair CX600 PSU
Corsair H100i (fits perfectly!)
Trident X 2400mhz cl10 2 x 8gb
1TB Caviar Blue and 250gb 840evo SSD

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Extremely FAST!!
Utility software it comes with is actually very useful
Rapid Mode

Cons: None.
Wish I had bought a higher capacity one?

Other Thoughts: I have been thoroughly impressed with this SSD and the software that works with it. Software can optimize Windows setting for performance, maximum capacity, maximum reliabilty, and/or custom.
What really makes this SSD stand out is Rapid Mode, making a this thing run at speeds of two SSD's in raid 0.
On my fx8350, 8gb of gskill 1866 memory I was able to get 1025 MB/s sequential read and 908 MB/s sequential write.

AGPtek Wireless Controller PC Windows Gaming Receiver for Microsoft Xbox 360 - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as intended
Seems of good quality

Cons: Kinda a hassle to setup.
Comes with no instructions

Other Thoughts: After downloading the Xbox controller drivers from microsoft and manually configuring it, it works perfectly. Minor hassle, but I paid $7 for it, so Im very happy with it
