This review is from: CASE ROSEWILL | FBM-05 Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case-Retail
Pros: For a Micro or mini unit it works very well.
Fan is not too loud.
Cons: A few problems- see comments below.
Other Thoughts: Would have worked right if I had payed closer attention. The motherboard standoffs were all not threaded appropriately. I tried to screw in the first motherboard screw with what I thought was the best fit out of 3 sizes of screws that were supplied.It seized and when I tried to back off the screw it rotated against the motherboard causing it to wear off the coating which eventually shorted out an destroyed the motherboard(my bad). Come to find out all the standoffs supplied were shallow threaded. I threw the standoffs away and used extras I have collected over the years. I put insulated washers above and below the effected hole but was too late. The damage had all ready been done.From now on I will always test the screw compatibility by hand tightening before I mount a board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Specs are great for a machine of this cost.Couldn't even tell if it was a Refurb. I think some of them are just factory overruns. absolutly NO JUNKWARE installed Only about 45 updates to get. Was updated this year in March.
Cons: A little bit of work to upgrade to SSD. (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Recieved one 2 years ago-still running well. recieved one today and orderd 6 more. The one I got today I logged on to windows and activated it. It even had drivers for my wireless card. I the rebooted and went into the Bios to find the Sata was set at IDE. so changed it to ACHI and of course when I rebooted it ran System Repair and it could not repair. It asked to send results to Microsoft which I did then popped up a screen with choices. I chose Install Windows from existing windows files. After that it installed windows and created an old windows folder in my C drive. Then I did system cleanup and deleted the old Windows folder and files. Now I am good to go and clone an SSD with the licenced windows installation in ACHI mode.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great burner and player.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Have purchased 6 of these drives and all are winners. Had 2 LG blueray drives and 2 lighton drives and all eventually gave out even with updated firmware.Used several brands of discs and good luck with all but mostly use Optical Quantum 4 and 6 by.To the person that said older people would have problems ripping and burning Frozen-I have done it very easy and I am 72 years old.READ FULL REVIEW
