This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: I had originally purchased a mid ATX tower but I returned it right away after I saw this baby! Here are the selling points for me.
1) Blue LED fans with a window display on the side
2) USB 3.0 in the front
3) Good size/price for a ATX Mid tower. Looks to be very popular based on the 5/5 ratings on newegg!
4) Great overall design.
Cons: 1) This product has a window, you would want to have the CLEANEST wiring job imaginable. To accomplish this out of the box successfully without much hassle, and not have to do any modding (with a dremel), I would suggest LARGER holes so the wires can be run on the other side. Perhaps another hole access would be ideal.
Check YOUTUBE for a lot of "Antec 900" mods, and take a note where the vast majority apply a dremel.
2) It would have been nice to have 4x USB in the front.
Conclusion: I was able to work with the design and the wiring was clean as possible - without modding. So I won't remove a egg. 5/5!
Other Thoughts: If Antec follows through, this is a solid product. And I would definitely buy another tower for my next set up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair CH-9000019-NA Vengeance K70 Mechanical Keyboard
Pros: I did some research for gaming mechanical keyboards, and I narrowed it down to this specific product.
1) Blue LED backlight (went with BLUE LED fans on my mid-tower, blue led glowing mouse)
2) mechanical keyboard Cherry MX Series - highly responsive, no click, little quieter then the other styles
3) LOCK windows menu key - ideal for gaming
4) brightness levels: off - low - medium - high
5) scrolling volume - change of pace, rather then clicking for vol +/-, just scroll as your leisure
6) Back light profile - able to provide back light specifically to certain keys. Awesome if you have a set of certain keys that are key bounded and only wish for them to display.
7) Included additional set of keys for #1-6, WASD. The left and right edges of the keys are angled so you are able to find your finger position in the dark. Awesome
Other Thoughts: Did I mention I love the blue light on the silver keyboard? Sleek! Great product Corsair!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Boots flawlessly, super fast start up! highly recommended.
Cons: I am new to SDD market and I had no idea that it didn't include any mounting brackets. To make matters worse, my case did not include them, so I had to go out and buy a set.
Looking forward, the CPU industry today now are changing over to SDD, especially with the price's coming down. It would be nice of the OEM, SAMSUNG, to include brackets or at the very least include a small note letting the user know that they aren't included.
