This review is from: RCA ANT1450B Flat Antenna With Amplifier in Black Finish
Pros: It works. You will receive some channels if you hook it up to your TV or a DTV receiver. More compact than rabbit ears.
Cons: It works no better than my 15 year old rabbit ears from radio shack. I tried 3 different orientations, both passive and amplified. Amplifier doesn't seem to help at all (and frequently makes reception worse). Eventually got the same number of channels as I was getting with my old antenna. Still only get CBS and ABC intermittently. I assumed a newer amplified antenna would provide a stronger signal so I could receive these channels, but no luck. These stations are only about 20 miles away, but that is too far for this little guy.
Other Thoughts: This is an OK antenna if you have no other way to receive over the air signals. Just don't expect it to be any better than a decent set of rabbit ears.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill R102-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Cheap. Looks nice. If all of your stuff actually fits in the case, it would probably be just fine.
Cons: Standard Size DVD/ CD-ROM Drive will not fit in this case. The top two 5.25" Bays are too narrow, you can't even get the drive in. The drive will go in to the third bay, but this bay is lined up with the motherboard, and the drive runs into the motherboard before it is all the way in. No way to secure the drive, and you could possibly damage the motherboard trying to get it to fit. The DVD burner I am using is not large at all, 1 5/8" x 5 3/4" x 6 3/4", but there is no way it will fit in this case.
Other Thoughts: Make sure your stuff will fit in this case. I assumed all ATX/ Micro ATX cases would support standard drives. Aparrently not. If your drive is longer than 6 1/2", it won't fit in this case unless it is a slim drive.READ FULL REVIEW
