Pros: This case caught my eye back in 2007 when I was building a new rig. It cost me $90 and it was a great investment. Sturdy and pretty. The clamshell doors allow any positioning on the left or the right side of your work table. You get a great access to your DVD-RW without having to deal with right/left hinged door. Filters on the front panel are great and easy to take out and clean.
Cons: Not really a con to a modder or anyone who knows how to use a Dremel, but: The HDD cage inside is positioned perpendicularly to the side panel, this highly limits the airflow from the front (intake) 120mm fan. Also, it doesn't allow for the latest High-end GPU to be installed without being 5mm from it. So, I removed the cage completely and to remove some more airflow restrictions I cut out the factory pressed grills on the front and the back of the case. Rear holw is now covered with wire grill and the front one is hidden behind fron t panel. The case still looks stock but makes less hissing noise when the air tunnels through it. and I was able to lower the temps inside at least 8*C. As for cable management, I made a few square cuts outs on the motherboard tray. Some on the bottom when the PCI slots are, and some on the right side of the mobo where 24-pin connector meets the mobo. Now you can barely see any cables in it. All hdds are sitting in 5.25" bays below DVD-RW.

This review is from: Euro Modern Contemporary Waterfall Bathroom Vanity Sink Lavatory Faucet Chrome
Pros: Chrome finish seems to be of a good quality. Got many compliments from my guests.
Cons: This thing makes a very loud and annoying hissing noise that can be heard 3 rooms away. I don't know what exactly causes the noise internally, but I wake up every time someone decides to use the sink at night.
Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for the loud hissing noise, I would rate it 5 eggs; because it does feel like a well built unit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Euro Modern Contemporary 16" Pull Out Spray Kitchen Sink Faucet Brushed Nickel
Pros: Great looking modern faucet. Good internal hot/cold mixer. Nice extension hose. Does the job.
Cons: Because its a single hole mount faucet it was very hard to mount it on my Volga Blue granite counter top. It rotates at the base and has to be readjusted once every few months. Also, this unit uses European tread on original hoses, so I had to find metric to US tread converters.
Other Thoughts: Next time I'll go with dual or triple hole mount faucet. I know it's not gonna look as sexy, but I won't have to dive under the sink to have it re-tightened. Overall it's a good product. Hope I won't have to change my rating anytime soon.READ FULL REVIEW
