4 out of 5 eggs Better than Average Chassis 07/29/2015


Pros: This chassis is roughly the size of a mid-tower PC chassis, but with better construction and cooling. The main cooling impetus is a single 120mm bulkhead fan, which moves a lot of air without being noisy.

Assembly is not a problem with this chassis and while compact, it's surprisingly easy to build. The overall construction is solid and the chassis has an attractive appearance. The availability of USB ports at the front panel is a nice feature.

Cons: We deducted one egg for this chassis because past experience has demonstrated that the stick-on rubber feet tend to come off. Plastic feet attached with screws, as was done with older Antec chassis, would be better.

Other Thoughts: Previous versions of this Atlas chassis included a power supply, which we found to be a negative—Antec power supplies have had a history of being failure-prone. That has limited our use of this chassis, as we knew that eventually the power supply would fail. Now that a "bare" chassis is available, we will purchase a number of these for future builds.

1 out of 5 eggs Very Disappointed This Time 07/29/2015

This review is from: KeyTronic E03600P2 Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard

Pros: None to report in this review.

Cons: We ordered two of these keyboards, which order was fulfilled by an outfit called, with whom we have had no prior experience. Both keyboards are defective and were poorly packaged for shipment. One keyboard has a sticking zero key on the numeric keypad and the other with a jammed space bar. The latter keyboard also shows some signs of having been previously sold to someone else, as it was not packaged as it would have been had it comes from the manufacturer.

Unfortunately, we placed these items into our inventory before the defects were discovered. When they were discovered, Newegg would not make good on either unit and deferred the matter to Antonline, the rationale being the latter was the seller, not Newegg. Antonline was uncooperative as well, leaving us with no alternative but to ship these keyboards at our expense to Key Tronic for warranty. The cost to ship them approaches the cost of purchase, so we may end up cannibalizing them for parts.

This nonsense of transferring orders to other vendors and not being willing to make right on a defective product may end up costing Newegg our business. We don't appreciate being ripped off by a seller (Antonline) with whom we had no intention of doing business.

Other Thoughts: Key Tronic products are good, but we suggest you think about it before ordering them through Newegg. We discovered that apparently all Key Tronic orders are being fulfilled by non-Newegg sellers. Accordingly, we will no longer be purchasing any Key Tronic product from Newegg. Caveat emptor!

Fractal Design Integra R2 500W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This power supply seems to regulate well under load, which is really all that you can ask of a power supply.

Cons: Hold up time is very short if subjected to a power blip.

The thermally controlled fan won't pull enough air to adequately ventilate the chassis, so be sure to have other cooling installed.

Other Thoughts: The use of thermally controlled fans in power supplies is unfortunate, as both the power supply and the computer itself will tend to run at temperatures that are somewhat higher than healthy. Too bad that no power supply manufacturer has seen fit to make the use of thermal control an option via a selector switch.
