Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA  Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs yah it works 08/12/2013

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.

AZZA Genesis 9000 CSAZ-9000B Black 0.8mm SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs A big messa this Azza 09/21/2012

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.

SteelSeries Ikari Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs double clicking goof of a mouse 09/07/2012

This review is from: SteelSeries Ikari Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse

Pros: Fits hand nicely - Yah i got bigger hands than some.
Doesn't have a lot of extra buttons - has 3.
Easy to set up software that doesn't get in the way.
Variable dpi speeds and can change on the fly to 1 of 2 presets.

Cons: The Bad - left clicker started double clicking within several months.
The Ugly - Steelseries tech support - I got one help email, with a program called mousefix attached - it didn't work for me; I did, however follow the instructions about putting it to the Start menu - still this mouse doubleclicks unexpectedly.
Another Bad thing - Steelseries did not respond to my email stating the above.
Good Thing - I'm going to buy another Logitech Gx whatever.

Other Thoughts: Save your money - even tho its out of stock here, its still buyable at Steelseries.
I've had 3 of these mice - the first one succumbed to the 2times clicking after 4 years - good enuf; the 2nd one is hardly used, but still good; obviously this 3rd one is ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-d, but its condition isn't as bad as that first one, but its still unuseable.
