Pros: Timely enough shipping, considering its coming from China. It all works, tho now I wonder why did I build a media pc ? apart from playing my mp3s, I do disc playback only.
Even this newb had it batteried up and working - with the usb plugged into the rear of the media pc - facing away from the kybrd & mse - and working within minutes.
Cons: Not so much of a con but a note - for the newbies like me, I didn't realize that there was a usb wireless packed into the mouse's bottom. Also, the box seems to show an off/off switch on the mouse's bottom - nope ! that's the optical lens ! Don't try to switch that ;-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)
Pros: Kudos to the guy below who suggested that you check your bios sata drive settings - worked a charm. Also, kept getting BSOD when trying to install XP from ide rom to ide drive, switched the rom cable to the last of 4 sata ports - ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 mobo has ports 5,6 & 7 under a different drive in bios that goes away when you set 1st 4 ports to IDE.
Cons: No language at all in box or site about setting bios to IDE - doh !
1 egg off for that.
Other Thoughts: working right now as intended ... couldn't figure out the language about rom drive not working, take jumper off and put it to NC, but there is a jumper on the card, the pins below it are labelled LED.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AZZA Genesis 9000 CSAZ-9000B Black 0.8mm SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Big case with 7 fans
Accepts a 120.4 rad in top & 120.2 in bottom
Reversible mobo tray and side panels
Removeable mobo tray serves as a tech bench
Bottom fans & psu configurable.
I like the case LED strips on front and top.
I like its bottom vented structure, similar to the NZXT switch.
As solidly built as any other China made case these days.
Cons: There's so little radiator clearance - latest rads are 54mm, 58mm, 60mm, 80mm tall - low fpi #, for slow fans - and none of them can be used in this case. Not as a 120.4 rad.
R-atx clearance = 50mm. L-atx clearance - 56mm.
The side panels - either you accept them or hate them, don't think there's anyone who loves them.
Would I buy it again ? NO !
Other Thoughts: I blindly bought this case, and then got educated about rads and what fits this case. I've been able to find only 2 build cases using radiator - 1 of them cyberpowerpc when they showed their build in Feb. How they got 25mm thick fans to install with a 360 rad inside a R-atx setup is beyond me. You mite be able to fit a narrower shorter 360 rad and fit 3 fans inside the case, depending on mobo's heatsinks, the 8pin, etc.READ FULL REVIEW
