This review is from: Phanteks PH-ES515P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Enthoo Pro M ATX Chassis
Pros: 1. Roomy
2. Good mounting system
3. Allows 140mm fans in the front and back
4. Space for radiators
5. Mid Tower
Cons: 1. 1 stripped screw thread, unable to use that hole
2. The front of the case takes 140mm fans but you must use the radiator screws to achieve this not the self tapping ones you'd normally have. Took me a moment to figure that out.
Other Thoughts: I actually did not expect this case to be perfect when I got it, every single case I've ever bought has had issues with something. Usually threads or mounting positions/screw holes being off. Here is no exception either.
The area where you'd attach the Phanteks PWM Fan Hub with screws was not properly threaded. 1 thread went inward toward the motherboard (correct) while the other went outward away from the motherboard and was not the same size. It was unusable as the screw would not fit through. I managed to drill it out and cut the excess off using a razor but that was NOT FUN. I'd honestly just have preferred screws and nuts which is what I'll end up having to do anyway now.
Also the Drop-N-Lock SSD Bracket is a nice idea but there are 2 things I'm not fond about. The first is basically it's tight, so sliding your SSD into the bracket will pretty much scratch the sides of it or the bracket itself. Something I'm used to but why couldn't they just make the bracket differently to prevent scratches in the first place?
Next the screws used in the Drop-N-Lock SSD Bracket are not my favorite. Sure they work but how many times will you be able to lock them before they wear down? I'm unsure but it seems like that's something that will eventually happen.
Over-all the case is fantastic but some design elements are things I'd have changed.
Pros: 1. Cheap
2. External antennas
3. Easily beats out routers not supporting AC
4. Dual band support
5. Has a many options available after logging in
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: The reviews here are varied, I'm going to wait and see just how this router acts. If it turns bad I'll report back. As for the time being the ONLY reliable router I've ever had was the Apple Airport Express. It never, ever, ever drops connections period. Wish me luck!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS USB-BT400 USB 2.0 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter
Pros: 1. None
Cons: 1. None, couldn't use it to find them
Other Thoughts: I am not knocking this product but pointing out that on my system I couldn't get it to fit correctly. The pressure required to get it in the USB port was not normal, I did get it in the main port of the case and then a usb 3.0 powered hub which would not read it as being inserted. From what I can tell it's just to tight and you need to literally push down hard to get it in a port, any port.
I threw it out the first day because of this, I don't seem to have damaged any ports but really how annoying I even tried. If it won't fit then don't use it period.
