This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
Pros: Plenty of room, well constructed, really made of metal with a plastic front overlay. It was a pleasure to install items except for the hard drives that are oriented 90 deg from normal. If they were the usual orientation, there would be less room. The ENERMAX NAXN ENP450AST 450W ATX12V Power Supply was perfect for the bottom install. Cables long enough to reach the board and cpu power connections.
Cons: One of the plastic front cover retainers broke off when I popped the panel off for the nth time. May have been my bad, not sure. Did not effect the panel. Disc drives turned 90 deg a bit of a pain, but if both side covers are off, not a problem. This was my first bottom power supply build, and the Enermax was a good choice, thanks to the info on the Enermax reviews. The hard drive led is bright as noted by others, but I have the case at knee level and it is no problem.
Other Thoughts: I don't get excited about cases. In general, they have something I don't like. This case is one of the all time favorites. The blue fan leds are not objectionable like I thought they would be. This case is fine for my workstation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Wintec FileMate B2020 Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard and Mouse Bundle
Pros: Works well. Replaces a Logitech keyboard and mouse (wireless) that was malfunctioning. Good tactile feel. Don't like the back key placement, keep hitting \ with my little finger. Mouse is light and sensitive, both positive attributes.
Cons: No instructions whatsoever in the box. Didn't realize the mouse wheel had to be depressed to activate the mouse. Almost sent it back. The Logitech had no such requirement.
Other Thoughts: Good bang for the buck.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Belkin F2N503 6" Power Switch Y-splitter Cable
Pros: None to state. The cable is not what I wanted.
Cons: Pictured with the cable are adapters that do not come with the cable. I have a need to revive an old system, and need a power plug for the floppy drive. If I received all that are pictured, I would be all set. The only thing for sale is the Y connector.
Other Thoughts: The cable looks good. Belkin makes a good product.READ FULL REVIEW
