Pros: The pros. that I had for this model are in my original review dated 4/9/12 and titled "can't go wrong."
At this time the only thing I can say is on the occasions when it works it works o.k.
Cons: I had two of these. Literally wore one out, and this was the second one. It was a little quirky from day one in that the tray, when the button was pushed, would come out quite fast and immediately go back in. Annoying but I lived with it. Lately, about 60-70% of the time it won't read disks, or starts to read the disc then stops, or will be reading the disk (music, movie, data, whatever) and about 1/2 way through will stop.
Tonight it simply shut down while reading data to be transfered to another disc, and locked up the PC again. Cold shut-down required.
Out of warranty, but that's o.k.
And I am not knocking ASUS; I will be ordering another DVD-RW and it will be either the the F model ASUS or a Lite-On: these are the two brands that OVERALL I have had the most reliability.
Pros: The USB Dongle actually let them produce acceptable sound. Excellent deal (WOW! $59!!)
Newegg shipping was, again, the best I have ever used/encountered in my long life.
Cons: Using the 3.5 connections I had to turn up the in-line Plantronics volume to Max to get enough volume AND my on-board sound to about 90%.
Sound was NOT as good at any volume as my old Sennheiser HD280's nor my old Plantronics DSP500s.
The Big One (CON) was that the microphone could not be made to work properly or with any volume nor consistent volume: Didn't matter what the settings were on my PC nor in Steam Chat, nor in game (where no one could hear me if there was any kind of action) Nor whether I used the USB Dongle or plugged directly into my PC microphone connection. Plantronics support, though friendly, was no help. I spent about 3 hours (a little yesterday 7/19, and about 2 1/2 hours today trying to get it to work: I was assisted by a friend locally with whom I communicated and he was able to tell me how (terrible) the sound was.
Oh yeah, my grandson tried them, just with audio, no microphone, and told me his 306's or 355's (can't remember which) sounded better!
Other Thoughts: A pity. Good looking, should have been killer sound and performance. Top rated by MaximumPC. A waste of my time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE - Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Used this for my grandson's build over a year ago. Found it easy to work in (no, not as easy as a full tower, but still easy). Good airflow. I had no problems with cable routing/storage, and didn't expect extra room for perfect routing. Have recommended this case to probably two dozen people - in person and on forums - who wanted a nice inexpensive case.
This will be the case I will use to build a new PC for my business classroom (though I will probably go with the 3.0 version)
It looks really sharp and pretty, too.
Cons: I don't have any. See 'other thoughts' (Hey Newegg! Please check it out.)
Other Thoughts: After initial build found the power button missing. Called Newegg a couple days later when we couldn't locate the button and they sent me a complete front panel, no charge and no return necessary. Wow! The day it arrived, bofore opening, the power button fell out of ???? in the case and I reinstalled it and it has worked fine since.
Newegg! Do you want the replacement panel back?? I would be more then happy to return it at my cost. It's still in the original shipping boxl
You guys are still the best! keep up the great work.
