This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Arctic White Silent ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Wire routing
Cons: Lack of a 3.5 bay. I knew this going in so I am not docking an egg. However, I had to give up my multi-card reader to my other PC b/c there just wasn't room to put in in with both drive slots taken up with a Blu-Ray and Burner drive.
I have to endure jokes from the wife calling it my refrigerator. The door in the front doesn't help its look either.
Other Thoughts: If you want a solid case that works without all the frills and gimmicks get this one. I got tired of my huge water cooled cases and my loud "extreme air" aluminum ones. All of my components are reasonably cooled even with a slight overclock and the case is extremely quiet. Because of its design, cleaning it is simple as well. I clean out my computers monthly and of all that I have ever owned, this case is the cleanest inside.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: TwonkyMedia QKPG could be better.
Other Thoughts: By Far this is the best NAS I have owned especially when compared to any of the Seagate offerings. I have no complaints about the hardware or firmware.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 5 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
Cons: USB whine
Other Thoughts: Other than the USB whine when not in game (it's apparent then), you get a lot for the price. My other headset is a Bose Quiet Comfort 25 but I can't use it for gaming (no mic). This headset, despite not being noise canceling, has good sounding drivers and a microphone that comes across crisp and understandable by others.
I can't fault the headset for features not included, but I do think they could have done a better job to filter out the power whine (USB power) when no other audio is playing. I know it's just not a noisy (poorly grounded) port as it has been tried on two high end gaming machines.
