This review is from: Antec P100 Black Computer Case
Pros: Roomy, decent cable management, easy-access air filters. Silicon-grommet drive trays w/SSD mounting holes. Nice aesthetics. Not a fan of doors, but this one opens wide, has a nice mag-lock and doesn't rattle around.
Cons: Went to this from an Antec Solo, largely to accommodate a regular-size GTX 760. The P100 is lighter/thinner, and lets a little more noise out. (It's still reasonably quiet, though, and while the panels are thin, the overall feel is not flimsy).
Other Thoughts: Stock fans run about 1200rpm at high, and are fairly quiet. Didn't move enough air at low. Haven't added a third yet, but temperatures are noticeably improved over the Solo -- CPU, GPU and 7200rpm drives are all running a few degrees (C) cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP Promo Z24i 24" 8ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 1000:1
Pros: Solid image quality. Colors and brightness are even edge-to-edge, no tint issues like some of the older models. Great for videos and day-to-day desktop apps, and decent for casual gaming. Nice quality stand, easily adjustable (looks great when rotated for pinball or old vertical arcade games!). Low power, stays nice & cool.
Cons: Lacks HDMI. A bit of corner glow, if you go black-screen in a dark room. Minor, nothing I'd ding it for.
Other Thoughts: Definitely a 1920x1200 panel (lots of online listings are wrongly showing it to be 1920x1080).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: FlingSmash w/Wii Remote Plus Bundle Wii Game
Pros: The Wii Remote Plus is in the box.
Cons: Flingsmash is also in the box.
Other Thoughts: Nintendo usually has decent games in their remote bundles, but this one reeks of "we needed something in a box in time for the holidays." If you're mainly looking for the remote+ (which is much nicer than plugging the add-on into the old remote), then save a sawbuck and pick it up as a standalone.READ FULL REVIEW
