This review is from: V7 V7TN460G Black High Yield Replacement Toner Cartridge for Brother TN460
Pros: It slipped into the drum enclosure and fit into the HL-1440 laser print.
Cons: The gears on the toner cartridge seize up, causing a grinding noise as it prints a page with black horizontal lines.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this in 2012 and then found I didn't need it, so I put the box away in the proper orientation (so as to make sure it would not cause the toner to settle in a strange manner). I recently opened it up and attempted to use it in my Brother HL-1440 print. Obviously, I've had it too long to even think of getting a refund or replacement. However, in searching the Internet, I'm finding lots of complaints of this nature.
I'm presently searching for a way to free-up the gears so they work as intended. So far, no luck.
Pros: Case comes with a 500W PS. Great ventilation (back, side, front, and top). It's generally solid with few/no metal protrusions/snags. One fan (but can accept one or two more). The power supply mount is in the bottom of the case, making it easier to attach the mobo. It arrived unblemished, shipped only in its own box (no additional packing).
Cons: The case comes with brass-colored posts that screw into the side of the case - these are for setting the mobo on. It also comes with three distinct types of screws - and only one of these types actually fit the brass posts !! Be aware of this during assembly so that you choose the right screw.
It also comes with audio and usb ports on the top of the case. I imagine these will collect dust due to their placement. Also, the top of the case is open to ventilation - this could cause more dust to enter the case . . . but I'm not sure since I've not had one like this before. These are mostly known items, which is why I'm not downgrading it.
Other Thoughts: There's a lot that I like about this case. For this kind of build (a server/general purpose computing platform with on-board video), I'd likely buy it again. I think the PS is a bit underpowered if you're looking for a high-end gaming box with really fast video.
Build includes: ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI USB 3.0 uATX AMD Motherboard, AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX, CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
Although not germane to this review, I'm building this as a Linux box for testing LAMP, Openstack, and general purpose desktop computing. I expect the case to provide sufficient cooling for these purposes.
Pros: Quality CPU - works as expected.
Other Thoughts: Foxconn micro-atx mobo; AMD x2 5000+, Samsung DVD writer, OCZ-6400 2 2-gig strips. Running Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS with Gnome interface.READ FULL REVIEW
