This review is from: Antec GX500 ILLUSION Computer Case
Pros: this case has good space for cables in the pocket behind the Mobo. made my cable management easy with the areas that are cut out in the areas around the motherboard and between the hard drive space. really well placed loops in the frame for wrapping twist ties. nice air port below the power supplies position with a dust filter and the case sits on legs so there is enough gap for air intake. I got a EVGA 600w psu that fit perfectly. the 3 fans that came with the case had their power cables ran behind the Mobo and met at a molex connector with pre labled connectors for top, back and front fan 3pin connectors.
Cons: I only really had 2 problems and minor at that.
first was I got extra 120mm fans for the front and side of the case. the window fan was fine but the 2 front fan ports have only 2 spots diagonal to screw into and you have to use the long screws with different thread size to mount them. the other spots to screw into are capped for some reason like they got solderer over on purpose. call it a design flaw.
second issue is new to me because I have never used a 2.5inch SSD and the way the SSD I purchased just happened to be hard to mount because of the way the hard drive bay is in the case. the bay is riveted in place and the 2.5inch mount is only a thin piece of the frame on the side you screw into and like 2 little nubs on the opposite side but they didn't sit in the right space for my SSD to be level and it made setting the screws a chore without a 3rd hand.
not worth taking an egg off as it might just be my problem with my choice of other hardware. everything else went really well. and I really like this case maybe even more then my Antec 900.
Other Thoughts: this was a case I got for a new computer for my mom. so she didnt really need anything special but for the price this was a really good choice. got it on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: working just fine.
Cons: none so far. I had a problem with an old cable dieing. was worried it was hard drive. swapped sata cable to find it was just a bad cable so bought a few of these for spares.
Other Thoughts: got this on cyber monday for a really cheap deal of 99 cents. with free shiping. so if you can wait to get them around a holiday sale you can probably save a bit, and buy an extra cable. way cheaper to buy on newegg then at a local store that wanted 15 dollars for 1 cable that was like 8 inches.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VGA to S-Video/RCA Converter Adapter cable for TV AV
Pros: I got this for a older computer to hook up to a TV with S-video. does the job. nice cable. and the ends are female so I didnt need to find any S-video F-F adapters.
Cons: no problems with this product so far. I only would of liked to get a DVI to s-video/AV adapter. not sure if this will work with DVI to d-sub adapter yet. keep meaning to try it out because all my newer video cards have 2 DVI ports and HDMI. the computer I used this on is the last one with any D-sub outputs.
Other Thoughts: like I said in the Cons not the cables or companies fault so I dont take any eggs away. this does exactly what I expected it to do. turns a TV into spare monitor. or would work with a projector or other older device to send signal from my computers.READ FULL REVIEW
