This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: -GREAT airflow
--Lots of fan mount locations, I have 8 excluding my CPU fans.
--Room for large air coolers and H100i setups
-Easy HDD mount, see other thoughts
-Looks awesome with good aftermarket fans
-Room for fans on front and back of hard drive cages
-neat cable management options
Cons: -The 120mm front and 200mm side fans that ship with the case use a proprietary connector, cannot be plugged into motherboard or fan controller (which can only use those three fans). The exhaust fan in the back uses a standard connector.
-Rear thumbscrews strip easily with a screwdriver or excess force. Don't overdo it. (I did)
Other Thoughts: The HDDs can be mounted easily on the bottom two. You can turn the drive and bracket upside down and use right angle data cables.
I've had this case for about 9 months now, and it has been awesome. I put a couple of the lepa casino fans in the front of the case and it looks neat. It's a sweet case for your average gamer/enthusiast.
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-805UB AC1200 Dual Band Wireless USB Adapter
Pros: Well, if it had worked, I'd assume it would have been an upgrade from my current adapter. If you get one that works I'm sure it would be an upgrade from a USB 2.0 wireless adapter, but mine didn't, so it wasn't.
Cons: -Not plug and play
Utilities for these kinds of products rob speed and eat up CPU/RAM and really just shouldn't exist.
I tested on two PCs with USB3 mobo ports. On one, the utility wouldn't even open (Windows 7 Pro Ultimate 64-Bit) and the light on the adapter didn't light up on either PC.
Other Thoughts: Waiting on an RMA. Wish it would have worked, but oh well. USB 3.0 technology probably shouldn't be bought cheaply but I like to roll the dice from time to time. Sometimes I hit a home run, sometimes I strike out. Whatabummer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech M500 Tilt Wheel USB Corded Laser 1000 dpi Mouse
Pros: -It works
-DURABLE. I've had mine long enough to forget exactly how long ago I bought it. I use it every day, thing has been a workhorse.
-ergonomic, not too small
-scroll click thing. You press this button and it takes away the clicks from the scroll wheel, allowing you to scroll freely and quietly.
-Laser, not optical. works on nearly any non-clear or non-reflective surface.
Cons: -1000dpi. This is a bit of a subjective con, some people don't want 8000dpi. Granted, this is not an $80 mouse, so you shouldn't expect high-end performance. If you're not OCD about specs like dpi, you just need an everyday mouse (i.e. 1-2hrs of gaming a day, 3-4 more hrs of other miscellaneous use) that won't peeter out on you 6 months in, go for it.
Other Thoughts: Recently started having trouble with my left-click button and my laser. sometimes it won't point straight up and down. It's had food and beverage spilled on it a number of times over the years and has been fine until now but I'm getting ready to retire it. It's just time. Like I said, got my money's worth, overall the product exceeded my expectations for how little I spent on it.
I didn't buy it at newegg, but if I were buying it today, I would.
