Pros: Samsung makes great hardware.
Cons: Samsung is the last to provide updates if they ever do.
Other Thoughts: I have a 10.1 Tab that came with Honey Comb that was still being sold when ICS was out. Samsung finally got an ICS update for it when JB was already out. There is still no JB update for it. The Motorola Xoom which was already history when I bought this, has had JB for quite a while now. My wife and I also have two Galaxy S3s. Came with ICS, and now have JB. Since we got one update and the S4s are out, we will probably be obsolete before our two year contracts are up. Love all the hardware, but will be looking for a company that supports it beyond the sale next time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small good looking 2U case with tray-less hot swap drive bay built in.
Cons: Does not have the two 80mm case fans that are shown in both open pictures. Because the case has no ventilation above the motherboard, those fans are necessary! Ran an a4-5300 (65W) processor up to 68C in about a minute just running the BIOS. Running around 46C now with the lid off waiting for the fans I ordered to arrive.
Other Thoughts: The right mounting bracket handle had been struck fairly hard so that some of the metal was peeled away. There was no damage to that area of the box so I have to assume that either quality control was lousy or the box had been opened before I received it and the damage had been done then. From the pictures I thought the blue finish was anodized, it is paint - it is a bit darker than pictured and has a fine metallic finish. They never said it was anodized so this is more an observation than a complaint. Since this case comes in Red, Blue and Black - common anodizing colors - someone else might assume that also. It is a shame this seems to be getting discontinued. The same case sells on New Egg for $10 more without the hot swap bay (which you can buy for about another $25). So this case will effectively go up about $35.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good Picture, Very bright (and uniformly back lit). Zero dead/stuck pixels. Delivered under $300.
Cons: I don't really need my living room any more. My computer chair will wear out faster.
Other Thoughts: I would buy another couple but I have neither the use nor the room for them. If it lasts over time, this will be one incredible deal. Can't say anything about the speakers since I use an older Altec Lancing 80W setup for sound.READ FULL REVIEW
