This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Pros: Large, strudy, window, removable HD cage, plenty of space for cable management, not going to get knocked over, keeps the noise level down, really nice to build into.
Cons: the door opens to the left so when it sits on my right its inconvenient... but I rarely have to open the door. Not really a "con" for me, but it may be for other ppl who burn cds often.
The white in the computer was not what I was looking for, but I went out and bought about $10 in painting supplies and painted the inside of my case (the white parts) black so it would match my color scheme. It looks amazing now.
Other Thoughts: I cant believe I haven't reviewed this item yet. This is my first case and I bought it with the thought of having it for a long long time. After building in this and rebuilding in it, I have no doubt I have chosen the right case for me.
With the removable HD cage you dont have to worry about having a long card. In fact, if you dont want to take out the HD cage and simply just turn it so the open side is face towards the front and back of the case it allows for better air flow and more room for long GPUs.
You should note that this case is HEAVY. No joke, but for me thats a good thing, I dont want some flimsy plastic case that vibrates when Im putting my components underload. Nor do I want a case that is so light that if I bang my knee against my desk it will shake it off balance.
BUY! Is the underlining message here folks
Pros: Look, feel, ease, size, responsiveness, usefulness all exceeded my expectations. I did not purchase this for myself so I havent had the chance to go through it in detail, however my experience has been delightful. I could see myself using this at work, home, and just waiting at the doctors office. The OS is not confusing and very creative, I really like the built in backgrounds and color schemes they give each user- good variety. Kick stand is awesome.
Cons: Weight was a little heavy and out of the box there was no charge so I thought I got a dud. Also, the marketplace is not the same as ios or android tablet would bring you, though I have had WP since the beginning the market place is always growing and merging.
Other Thoughts: I didnt want to add this into the cons since its not REALLY a con. But, this is why I took an egg away. This is a real deal tablet. Its not a reader and its not an Ipad, both of which I think serve specific purposes that fit the masses when they think tablet. I went into purchasing this "tablet" simply for entertainment purposes, but I should of gone with an Ipad or Galaxy Tab if that were the case.
Point is while the Windows tablet can function as a gaming and movie watching device you would loose out on all the other features this bad boy carries. This tablet would be perfect for a student. No you wont type 10 page papers on this thing, but you can take your notes on, you can present your power point on it, you can catch the latest Parks and Recreation episode in between classes on it, you can skype your group on it, and you could film your class so you can go back and see what you missed while you slept off that hangover in the back of the classroom on it. I am pretty sure you can do much much more with this, but again I purchased for someone else and have only had the chance to view part of product.
Overall great product- wish I had this when I was in school would of made life hella easy. I may get myself one for work.
This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Pro 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive GDP2000EU
Pros: 2TB of memory - good paperweight
Cons: I bought this because I could tell my laptop was about to go Kaput (which it did) and I had a ton of movies, shows, pictures, and VERY important papers stored on my laptop. So I transferred it over to the Fantom. Worked well and everything checked out.
But than I ran into money problems and could not purchase a computer so everything that was on the Fantom stayed on the HD longer than I wanted (4 months). So 4 months went by and I turned on my Fantom maybe twice to retrieve some files. Until i was able to build my computer, I loaded the Fantom expecting to pull on my media and of course everything was corrupted.
So I owned it for about 4 months, than stored it for another 4 without much use and after 8 months total before it back useless.
Not to mention this thing is big, ugly and loud. Not worth the money
