Pros: If you are building an HPC, or even just a new PC build without any fancy needs for multiple expansion cards, e.g., a high-end gaming machine, this is a great case to use. It takes an ITX motherboard only, and there's just a couple of choices for SFX power supply (Silverstone), but it'll take any two-slot full-length graphics card you throw at it. The included case fans keep it running cool. In half the space of an ATX mid-tower case.
Cons: Because it is so compact, you do need to take care on the component selection you use. You can't use any CPU fan, you need a low-profile one (or use the stock one that comes with Intel retail CPUs). E.g., NT06-PRO low-profile fits perfectly.
Other Thoughts: As also noted in other reviews, your only choice for optical drive is a low-profile slot-load, e.g., Panasonic UJ-267 (Blu-ray writer) And you do need to also order a data cable for it (Silverstone CP10), there isn't one included.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ran great for 5.5 years...
Cons: 2 out of 3 drives began showing SMART offline uncorrectable errors just after the 5 yr warranty expired. This was in a RAID5 array so was almost a disaster.
Other Thoughts: Replaced with Seagate enterprise drives, my data feels safer now. Shot holes in the WDs with 7.62x51 rounds, data is gone from them for good. Wish I could post a pic.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: IPS panel looked great, nice color palette, wide viewing angles, was very impressed while it was working.
Cons: Extremely wobbly stand, no HDMI input. I had this display on a table with a DVI-D to HDMI converter sticking out of the back of it which made it even more wobbly. You can guess what happened next. It tipped over and fell on it's face catching the edge of the keyboard which SHATTERED THE DISPLAY internally. Needless to say I was VERY displeased that it broke so easily.
Other Thoughts: Sucks that I had it for a couple of days and I now have to eat the cost of this piece of garbage. No more poorly built LG displays for me!READ FULL REVIEW
