Corsair Obsidian Series 450D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case Compatible with ATX (not included) Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Serious quality & design issues. Not worth the retail price. 08/11/2016

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 450D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case Compatible with ATX (not included) Power Supply

Pros: -Overall case aesthetics were pleasing. Nothing too flashy or cheap looking.
-Fans seemed decent. Quiet and with good air flow. Long enough cables too.
-Decent mounting for a top mounted radiator.
-Good size for a water cooling setup with an ATX motherboard.
-Rubber grommets that were for routing wires were a nice touch.
-Side window being flush mounted gave the case a little nicer look.
-Fan filters all around. The use of magnets made changing out filters easy.

Cons: -For this case being around 90% steel, it flexed way too much. This made putting the side panel on harder at times than it had to be.
-Push button front fan grill comes off too easy. It really should have been magnetic.
-Quick tool-less optical drive bay mechanism did not allow a drive to slide in easy. I almost felt like I was going to break it when I installed it.
-Reset switch/power switch/HD light/Power light header cables were about 4 inches too short to my MSI Z170A motherboard.
-Paint (on mine) had overspray/spatter on the one side and a place inside where they had missed painting it all together. That spot actually had rust on it.
-About half of the screws for the motherboard stand offs were cross threaded.
-The drive cage was also a bit on the thin side.


Other Thoughts: My first impression of the case was great, but as I dug in and started to mount everything it went downhill. I ended up sending this case back to Newegg and went with another vendor. I really had high hopes as Corsair sells some really great power supplies and water coolers. But I will stay clear of their computer cases. For the money there are better choices available.

Canon imageCLASS MF8280CW wireless Color Multifunction laser printer, 14 ppm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap price when on sale. Prints are average. Did what other users suggested, installed driver directly from Canon, no issues under Windows 7/8.

Originally had the unit set up with wired ethernet, then went to wireless. No issues.

Very quick first print. Made probably 20 color fliers in roughly 2 minutes for a car that I was selling.

Build quality seems a little on the light side. Not quite the office grade of our HP laser printers that we have at work, but definitely better than a "consumer" grade home printer. I expect this thing to last awhile.

Cons: Tried to print pre-cut business card sheets, toner would not lay 100% evenly on them. Package even said "compatible with all inkjet and laser printers". Bought glossy version instead, worked fine.

As others have said, your mileage may vary on the starter toner. Already burned half-way through mine as it sits. Roughly 200 pages have been pushed to it, mostly color fliers, so really not that bad. Still beats using my ink jet HP.

Other Thoughts: I wish newegg would have double boxed this thing. The box was beat up pretty bad. By the time I got it the handle was broke (UPS guy wasnt happy it broke halfway up the stairs) and there was a huge hole punched through the side of the box. Luckily, nothing inside was broke.

JBL J88i Premium Over-Ear Headphones with Mic - Black

5 out of 5 eggs Good bargain when on sale. 02/24/2015

This review is from: JBL J88i Premium Over-Ear Headphones with Mic - Black

Pros: The earpads one these are very soft smooth leather.
They are relatively light.
I can go a couple hours before they start to fatigue my head/ears at all.

Overall design is clean looking. Locking removable cable is a nice touch. In line Microphone and select switch works on my Android Phones. Volume controls do not. Have not tried it on an apple device yet. My desktop computer picks up the microphone only.

Lower bass frequencies is average on these. 60hz down these seem to be missing some omph compared to other headphones I own. Even with an EQ pattern boosting this range they are a little light. Overall sound quality is decent, considering the price.

The box they came shipped in was pretty snazzy. Definitely well packed and very professional looking. A zippered carrying pouch is a nice touch as well.

Cons: SOOOOO CLOSE on the full compatibilty with an Android phone. (I know these are advertised for use with apple, so not really a con.) Just the (+ -) volume controls dont work. Using the PowerAmp app on my HTC M8 one Smartphone the play/pause/track up/track down functions work great!!! As well as making a call using the microphone.

Other Thoughts: For the price newegg had them on sale for I couldnt pass them up. I really wish I had bought 2 more pairs for my brothers to use. Probably the lowest paid JBL product I have ever owned but the best in terms of feeling like I got a great deal. I have never been dissapointed by buying JBL anything.
