Pros: Good case, big quiet fan for nice airflow, decent looks. Components fit in fine. Had for almost a year now and just bought another one for the wife.
Cons: I didn't use the cheap power supply that came with it. You do know better right? Get a decent 80 Plus PS. I've been using the FSP Group AURUM GOLD 500W and love it, although it's $79.
Other Thoughts: After a few months, the big fan started to go out on me as the lubricant dried up. I peeled back the label a bit, squirted in some oil and it has been running fine for 7+ more months so far now after that. However, the fan LEDs went out one by one and none are on anymore. Front panel LEDs are fine.
Some reviewers complained about thin cheap metal and I don't see what the issue is. I put it under my desk, not roll it down the stairs and jump on it.
Pros: Worked fine for 7 months, although a bit loud when playing games.
Cons: Playing Skyrim and my computer just shut off. I smelled a faint burning smell. I let it rest for a bit and turned it back on, and literally saw the chip on the back of this card light up in sparks.
My system stays relatively cool with a even big 9" side door fan.
Pros: Cheap, works. Let Windows 7 install the driver from the internet (using wired connection at the time).
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to upgrade a laptop used to run Windows Media Center that plays HD TV that my desktop PC records. The built in 802.11g was not quite fast enough to keep up, causing me to run a wired cable so that I did not get a stuttering effect. This small adapter allows it and connects at 144.4 Mbps about 20 ft. away going through 3 walls.READ FULL REVIEW
