Pros: -Well-built and solid, nice fit & finish
-Painted inside & out
-No sharp edges
-Room for cable routing
Cons: -It has top fan mounts (not really a con, I just worry about things falling into the case)
Other Thoughts: This is a surprisingly nice case for an inexpensive, no-frills product. The case looks nice inside & out, with lots of nice touches. It's hard to explain exactly, but you can always tell when you use a product that someone thought very carefully about: there are slim fingerholds on the side panels so you don't have to pry them off with your fingernails; the power LED is a cool white ring around the button; all inside edges are rounded or sanded; everything fits firmly without forcing or slack. The included 120mm fan is 3-wire and very quiet.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, from build-and-forget to constant component replacers.
This review is from: RiDATA 4.7GB 16X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model DRD-4716-RDCB100E
Cons: I've been buying Ridata media for years, with no problems, but for some reason with this SKU they decided to print the stupid "Ridata DVD" logo repeated over the ENTIRE DVD surface. So, there's no place to write, because the entire surface is covered with their stupid logo. It's textured too, so even if you were going to stick a label on it won't adhere properly.
Other Thoughts: These are basically worthless. I write on DVDR's with a thick black marker, and I can only make out what I've written by holding the disc at a specific angle and squinting. I'm really frustrated that I just blew $25 on this piece of junk that I'm basically going to have to toss in the trash. Ridata is great, but don't buy any of their product without being able to see what's printed on the surface.
Hey Newegg, maybe include a picture of the actual media in your listings, so I can tell which media is worthless, and I don't end up throwing away whole spindles of media.
