Pros: capacity, value
Other Thoughts: Great value. I bought this to replace a tiny 40 gigabyte WD IDE drive. I unwrapped this Maxtor HD from the bubble wrap and installed it into my mobo. SATA connectors are easier to connect than IDE. Popped in my Win XP disk, and the OS installed quickly. OEM, so no SATA connectors, but my ASUS main board came with those. Newegg packs its products well. As usual, awesome customer service.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: low price, big bang for the buck, Asus quality
Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade my new system -- ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus, AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core, & 2 gig DDR 2 RAM. This card replaces my stock Nvidia 6150SE onboard video, and my system feels faster overall now. Games like "GTA: San Andreas", "Xpand Rally", "Half-Life 2", etc. run much smoother, and I can run these games at max settings now so the games look better with more detail.
It was easy to install. I just unplugged my cables, inserted it into the PCI-E slot, and Vista recognized it right away and installed the correct drivers and erased the old drivers for the onboard video. I'll buy a better card (8500 or better) in a year or so, but this should be fine for now. I can run "Bioshock", "Crysis", and "Orange Box" now.
Pros: build quality seems high for a cheap case, low price, 2 tone color.
Other Thoughts: I paired this with an ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus main board for my new PC. It is a nice budget case. Lots of room inside, so installing the main board and drives was easy. Build quality seems higher than other cheap cases I've had before.
It has a cool looking blue light around the front power button. I like having the front USB (2) and audio jacks. The PS works fine. I bought an ASUS case because I've always had good luck with ASUS products, and this PC case continues that pattern.
My ASUS main board came with a "Powered by ASUS" case sticker which I stuck to the front of the case. Pretty cool to have an ASUS case with an ASUS mobo.
