This review is from: SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25", 2x3.5"+1x2.5"HDD or 1x3.5"+2x2.5"HDD, 3x120mm golf bladed fan, 11" expansion card capable HTPC Case with 2X USB3.0 ports (Black)
Pros: Good looking
Cons: None of now
Other Thoughts: A lot of the negative reviews here are rather silly.
This case is designed for HTPC. Water cooler does not belong here. The large $300 video card does not belong here. HTPC does not need the large gaming card. This is not a gaming case.
This case is for a medium power, quiet HTPC set up. I have:
AMD FM1 type GPU/CPU
Corsair 450W PS
Single SATA HD
My CPU fan is running at 1500 rpm and two original fans running at about 620 rpm. I do not hear the fan noise.
As for the HD LED. The comments are very silly. The HD LED is there. But in order not to have very bright LED light, the HD LED was not drilled. So it is power/HD combo LED. With the same LED, you can still see the HD activities. So this is not distracting with TV viewing. Some case LEDs are too bright for this purpose.
This review is from: iCanonic Black Blue 12,000 mAh Universal Rechargable Power Pack ICR-12000B
Pros: Relative fast charge.
Cons: Well, it is not fancy as some of the others have. I care less about this.
Other Thoughts: Almost all the other portable batteries I've looked at have the Micro USB power input. And this is the very first one I found that does not use the Micro USB. Charging input makes a big difference. With AC charger, you can charge it much faster.
I use this battery mainly to power my MiFi. That box has a small cellphone type battery, but it lasts only minutes. I do not know why. With this large battery, I never have to worry about the MiFi out of power. I also use the battery to charge my Galaxy and Nexus tab. I've not used more than 1/2 of the capacity.
A good buy.
This review is from: Total Defense Premium Internet Security - 5 User
Cons: Basically the software is free and they make $ by subscription service.
Rebate is scam.
Other Thoughts: I was wondering why this product has been bundled with so many other products and is basically free if you get the rebate ($60 to $80). Now I know.
First, it is very hard to get your rebate. I do not know what the success rate is to get the rebate. I figure very very low.
The software is essentially free and they try to get your money by forcing you to install the software and use its subscription service. To submit the rebate, you'll have to activate the product. I figure they would make the rebate eligible only if you keep using their service. Or no rebate!
Most subscription-bases software is totally free, but this company add one more layer trying to get your $ through the rebate scam. You can't change your mind after you purchase the software.
Do not buy.
