Antec GX500 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Very good case - Not great 07/17/2014

This review is from: Antec GX500 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case has plenty of room and comes with a nice set of hardware (spacers, screws, washer, speaker.) Has the 3.0 USB hookup, yeah for that. The top of the 3.5 HD cage has a install space for a SSD (again, with applicable screws. Some don't) The top is plastic, be prepared to settle for that, if you're not aware. IT's not the best stern plastic, but it isn't lame arrsse plastic either. All in all, for the price it is well worth the $$. Comes with 3 fans, 2 top, 1 back. If on a budget, take a top and put it in front (should have probably come that way anyway. LLOLL.)

Cons: The strength of the chassis metal is below par for what I've come to expect from Antec. Realist though, for the money, wasn't expecting 900/1200 level thickness. But be forewarned, it is pretty flimsy. Not the best fans, like used to with Antec, but sure they do the trick. Have to ding a egg though for the skimpy metalness (or lack thereof.)

Other Thoughts: For a same tier case, look at the SilverStone PRECISION Series PS09B. It's actually less, and comes with padded sides for noise control. Sell builds, and wouldn't use either personally, but the PS09B rides a bit better and isn't as much right now. I would buy this GX500 again though at the right price (got a good deal here.)

TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Someone earlier said they believe they got a Hitachi drive, not a Toshiba. This isn't accurate. WD bought Hitchi, but part of the conditions for the purchase, international oversight I guess, they had to sell off a bunch of Hitachi/WD assets and equipment to finalize the purchase. Toshiba has also sold a portion of its storage capacity to WD, and in return, bought some of the equipment and assets WD had to sell.

Cons: Thus, the reviewer got a Toshiba drive drive, but it was for all and intent and prupose probably made on Hitchi production lines just transferring over, since these changes are still taking place. I guess one could get technical and say, they recieved an Hitchi drive, but if that were truly accurate on that logic, then they really would have goten a WD drive! I plan to buy a Toshiba drive to bench, and hope they work some of the earlier Hitachi speeds into them. But if you got the money, WD Black is still the way to go in the 3.5 market.

Other Thoughts: Of course Seagate quality control and assurance is still the pits. Man, people still hold on to Seagate, even though their failure rate is incredible.

Samsung 60
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs KNOWWHJATBYNOW? 07/06/2012

This review is from: Samsung 60" Class (60.0" Diag.) 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV UN60EH6000FXZA

Pros: KnowbyNow claims he/she is intelligent and by reading the website has deciphered there potentially a sam going on here to get CC info before showing price. Well KBK, did you read the disclaimer of whay they have to keep the price off until post? I work in Sales man, it is true, OEM comapnies will not let reseller like Newegg sell below a certain price if they openly advertise the price, and when a reseller is forced to do so, it is b/c the price is below, usually too far below the manufacturers MSRP!!! If they didn't they would void agreements b/w them and they lose certain prices they buy at themselves. So there big brain, read a little more before you spout off.

Cons: This is why 12 people have already gave you tools status.
Oh, nice TV by the way, the slim version is sweet.
