This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Fantastic build quality. Dead silent. has a few awesome and mostly unique features like the push button side panel. I have very high end hardware in this case with about 10 total fans when you count case, video card, CPU and PS fans.... Would be hard to tell it was on at all if it didn't have a power light.
Cons: no REAL cons.
Other Thoughts: the front panel door isn't as great as advertised. It's NOT meant for someone who actually needs frequent front panel access (for media drives). The option to open the door from either side doesn't work well. it's nearly as likely that you will pull the door off as open one side. or you'll try to open from one direction and accidentally open from the other. It's more like a semi-hinging Tupperware lid than anything else. It's annoying if you have to open the door constantly. If you don't use DVD's on a regular basis then this case is flat out awesome. The company should have just put standard hinges on the door with a "push to open" latch like everyone elseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KRUPS XP5620 Black/Steel Precise Tamp Espresso Maker
Pros: I only payed around 100 bucks for it so... considering it works and makes delicious espresso it's hard to complain. The steam pump does a wonderful job as well. It very quickly whips up the milk whether it's 2% or skim. Takes a little time to prep between modes (10 seconds or so which can get tedious) Someone said the steam nozzle was plastic, it has a plastic GRIP on it yes so you don't burn your hand off when you remove it for cleaning but he clearly had some type of other defect. The attachment itself is steel.
The self tamping feature is also amazing, it puts the right pressure on the grinds automatically which keeps you from having to grind the coffee perfectly to match the machine. It basically makes it so it's impossible for you to ruin or burn your coffee by mistake.
Cons: none really
Other Thoughts: Don't go into this expecting a miracle machine. It's an Entry level espresso machine that performs like a mid level espresso machine. Obviously if you spend 500 bucks on a machine it's going to be superior in every way... but it won't be 500% superior, not by a long shot. It depends on how serious you are about your coffee.... But this is an outstanding machine for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
