Pros: Nice design, not too bright for bedroom office system, comes with OK PSU
Cons: Just a little too tight - PSU and front panel cables barely make it through the tight space after you install a DVD drive and HD. Also, I wanted to put a fan on each side of the motherboard, one pulling air in and one pushing air out... but once you put in the motherboard, there is only room for one fan on the same side as the PSU... with just an extra half inch on the other side I could have put another fan in. Oh well... hopefully the CPU fan and the one case fan will be enough to keep my 3.6 Ghz / 24 GB RAM rig cooled.
Other Thoughts: Not a lot of great option for smaller systems out there, but this one is pretty good for the money. I would buy again, but if a new one comes out with that extra 1/2 inch depth and width I would replace this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Black Hercules MicroATX 500W Silent Power Supply 20/24pin SATA
More cable options than most microATX PSUs
Cons: Loud fan
Other Thoughts: Higher wattage than most microATX PSUs out there. However, this is not silent... by far the loudest fan in my rig. I'm knocking two stars off for that as it is a big disappointment considering the product name has "Silent Power Supply" in it. Other than that, it seems to be performing quite nicely.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung BDJM51 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player
Pros: Small and compact, plays movies just fine.
Cons: Oh my gosh... it sounds like a plane is taking off when this thing is playing... we have to turn the sound way up to mask the sound. And forget about dramatic moments of silence during any movie, this thing totally kills the mood.
Other Thoughts: I decided to return it, but then realized as I was trying to do so that it had been just over 30 days. I guess I will have to bite the bullet on this one. I will give it to a deaf person and buy a new one.READ FULL REVIEW
