This review is from: Antec P280 Black Super Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Heaps of room inside.
Easy cable management.
Front USB 3 ports.
Filters for front and PSU fans.
Built in fan headers for top and rear case fans.
Silicon cushioned HD trays.
Quiet . . . Once you replace supplied fans.
Cons: Supplied case fans aren't all that quiet. Even on low setting.
Much bigger than I was expecting. This could be a "pro" as well, but something to be aware of.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is an excellent case to work with. Lots of room and and with cable management options, your install will look very clean! It's a big case and has lots of fan options to keep everything nice and cool.
My only issue is that the supplied fans aren't what I would call "quiet". A bit disappointing considering Antec is billing this as a "Quiet Computing" case. But once you replace the fans with Noctua or Antec TruQuiet fans, things are nearly silent.
So if you're after a nice, quiet case (I record voice over in the same room as my system), pick this up. Just be prepared to change the fans. :)
This review is from: Antec TrueQuiet 120 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Very quiet on low speed setting.
Silicon mounts on corners.
Decent length of wire to reach mobo fan header.
Cons: Fan speed switch is a little short.
Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to replace the fans that came with my Antec P280 case. I had some reservations since I'm a fan of Noctua case fans, but so far I've been very impressed! Very quiet on low RPM setting but still moves enough air to keep temps down. Seriously, these are VERY quiet.
If you need a quiet case and want to save a few bucks, pick up a few of these and put them on low. Great stand in for Noctua fans.
Pros: Easy to install. Nice strong signal. No messing around. It just works like it's supposed to. Nice!
Cons: For the back of my desktop, the antenna is facing down due to the direction of the USB. Not a big deal. If it was a real issue for me, I'd just use the supplied USB extension cable.
Other Thoughts: This is the second TP-Link wireless USB I've owned. Previous to the first one, I had never heard of the company before, but I have to say I've been impressed.
I now have a TP-Link wireless g USB adapter, a TP-Link wireless n 150Mbps router and now this adapter. All work fine and have never given me any issues. Unlike my previous experiences with D-link, Belkin, etc, which cost more.
