This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: Great side visibility with its viewing window, easy-to-open side panel thanks to grippable screws, nice looking case
Cons: Terrible with keeping out dust -- the inside of your case will get caked with it, as will the grills on the side and rear of the case.
Other Thoughts: This case has been around for a long time - I bought it back in 2008 and mine is nearly six years in operation at this point. Long story short, the inside of this case looks like a haunted mansion -- everything is caked with dust, and that's after blowing it out regularly. The absolute worst are the fan blades (case fans, as well as those over the RAM and graphics card) and heatsink -- I cannot seem to keep them clean for long. The case does have good airflow if you're tying down your cables, but it is also suctioning everything in the immediate area at the front of the case and pulling it right in.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Allegedly it's a good unit when it works (I wouldn't know)
Cons: It's OLD (circa 2004), unsupported by newer OS's, and it comes with no video capture software.
Other Thoughts: I've fought endlessly to get the ADVC300 to work with a Vista Ultimate 64-bit system, but it simply does not. I suppose I could reformat my rig, buy Windows 7 and attempt to use that, but that is ridiculous, IMO. Fellow consumers - this product is very old. Note how the majority of reviews are from the mid 2000s. After doing a lot of research after fighting with Roxio/Virtualdub/WinDV software not accepting this device, I've learned that it simply has tons of compatibility issues with Win Vista Ultimate 64 - so, if that is your OS, I'll save you a lot of trouble here and will tell you that it won't work (the box itself says that it supports Win 2000 & XP, enough said).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's recommended along with Linksys routers, and you should always get a recommended router/adapter combo
Cons: Drops connection unexpectedly, for no reason...sometimes, it's literally impossible to get the connection back. If you plan to connect an iPod Touch to it, GOOD LUCK, it only works in WEP mode -- hopefully that won't interfere with the rest of your network. Once again, sometimes the connection is dropped to such a degree that it is impossible to figure out how to re-connect to the router - even if you go into manual settings & input the IP, Subnet, Gateway and DNS's yourself. The "one push setup" is a joke. The only way to fix big problems is to sell it online, and get a Netgear...READ FULL REVIEW
