IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful case. Nice cable management. Easy to carry. Almost tool less. LEDs are cool. Installing hard drives was an absolute breeze. Cables are nicely labeled. Packing for the case in the box is appropriate and protects the case rather nicely. Case fans are very quiet.

Cons: Instructions are presented on a fold-out and not a book type manual. The instructions (if you can call them instructions) are just pictures as the text below is virtually useless. The worst part: the rubber grommets that hold the rear fan in place. Why rubber!!! When installing a water cooled fan, the screws for the fan had nothing to secure to as the screw head was too small for the rubber grommet and passed right through it! Why not use the case and cut an appropriate hole for screws??? As a result of this layout, installing a self inclosed water cooler was a nightmare. Furthermore, one of the rubber grommets split in half so now I have only 3 screws holding the rear fan (as extras are not included). Not a deal breaker but a real hassle when installing third party fans. A metal grommet would have been the way to go on this - 2 eggs off for that.

Other Thoughts: I like the case so I'm stuck with 3 grommets. May try to go to a hardware store to find a metal replacement for all 4 grommets. Fans are near silent which is great. I setup the new AMD FX chip with this case and it runs absolutely silent. Would have been nice if the cutout for the estata on the front of the case was actually cutout so you could use it. This is one of the nicer cases offered by In Win.

Ceton InfiniTV 6 ETH – Six-Tuner CableCARD Ethernet Network Tuner for Win7 and Win8 PC 5504-DCT06EX-ETH
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 6 tuners, Ethernet connection to switch, all computers on network can see tuners and watch television. Setup relatively quick and straightforward. Price is okay.

Cons: Current Ceton drivers (13.5.24.142) for this unit cause random crashes in Windows Media Center whereas the previous software installed (I was using the pci-4 tuner version) was rock solid. The crashes are happening in Windows 8 on a brand new install with no other programs loaded. Having a hard time locking down the issue.

Other Thoughts: Ceton tends to update their software regularly so I'm hoping the next update will stabilize my current build. If you're not afraid of a little excitement, take a look at this tuner.

D-Link DGS-1024A DGS-1024A Unmanaged 24-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Unmanaged Done Right! 05/23/2013

This review is from: D-Link DGS-1024A DGS-1024A Unmanaged 24-Port Unmanaged Gigabit Switch

Pros: Plug and play - the end. Very little heat generated. It just works!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Numbers could be a little larger in the front. I like that the cables connect in the back of the device making the numbers on the front a little easier to read. Price was also excellent. Looking forward to many years of use.
