Pros: It's cheep.
It went into my PCI Wi-Fi card.
Cons: Bought it on Sunday arrived at USPS on Thursday. No holidays during that week or the week after. Arrived at my door step Tuesday.
Other Thoughts: Was a little worried that it wouldn't show up because of other comments complaining about parts not showing up and can't get a refund. So I just took a small risk ($5 after shipping) and got it because my last antenna broke during moving into my new home. Happy I got it and didn't cost a lot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 CC-9011034-WLED Silver Steel ATX Cube Computer Case
Pros: This case was almost to easy to work with.
Nice open area to work with wiring.
Lots of air flow.
Dual chamber to separate the power supply.
Extra zip ties and screws for fans.
Simple design that works.
Has a dust filter.
Cons: Now here is why I knocked an egg from a almost perfect case. The screws for the case fans are complete garbage. I almost striped every single screw (did destroy one and had to use pliers to unscrew it and used it to pre-thread the fans but didn't seem to help.) to add three 120mm fans in the front and move the two 140mm fans from the front to the top. I replaced one of the screws that was striped with one from my old Antec 900 case on a fan I haven't installed yet and was not threaded and it went in so much better than the screws that corsair gave me and it is installed into a corsair fan. This little headache took me about an hour to install 5 fans by taking out 3 fans from my old case (which took 5 mins) to install 5 fans into the 540. (which took 45 mins). Anyways they are in and not rattling even when they are spinning at max speeds which makes me happy.
Other Thoughts: I like the look of this case a lot more than my old Antec 900 and wanted to get it for some time now. I'm just glad I have wire management instead of trying to run all the cables threw one opening and shoved under the HDD rack on the bottom. I don't need to take the whole case a part just to clean it correctly once a month because it has a no dust filter. The only thing I did like the 900 was the side fan I had installed as a blower to suck heat from my MSI GTX 770 card from the side which drop the temps on him almost by 10C.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Everything about it feels very sturdy and doesn't feel like it will break by touching it.
I like the screen on it, colors seem very accurate and is bright.
Pretty snappy for a Intel Atom seems they have improved it quite a bit sense I used one.
It has MS Office 365 for free for 1 year which is a $100 annually by itself.
Cons: It can all ways use a better CPU like the MS Surface Pro's have. The i5 would jack up the price close to those and would help out with more demanding games and programs.
Other Thoughts: I'm not really going to use it for gaming because it was mostly for web browsing, school work and small little games that don't demand to much GPU/CPU power.
I didn't say the SSD size as a con because MS Office gives you 15 Gb on the cloud for free and have an HDD on my network for music and movies if I want to watch them or store more information onto it.
If people start complaining and rating it down because it doesn't play a game great well they wasted their money and should built a desktop for $400 with an AMD A-10 series APU or just go all out on it or bought a $800 or more laptop with a decent discrete GPU.
