Pros: Good quality metal HDD brackets, tasteful design, included fan controller is a nice bonus. Grommets for everything eliminate vibration noises. Fan installation is fast and easy, no self-tapping screws to fuss with. Sound insulation everywhere keeps the case fairly quiet. Nice quality power button, reset button is hidden and difficult to press accidentally.
Cons: Runs hot with default fan configuration (temps went up 5C from my p183). I put two better fans in front, temps are still +3C. Tabs on the side panels are flimsy and tend to bend, which makes fitment difficult. Grommets are cheap and fall out all the time. Matte finish absorbs oils, creates spots from handling. Metal is flimsy, tightening screws past hand tight on the psu mount point or PCI port covers will break paint. Plastic doors over the front fans take some finesse to open. Not much room behind the mobo tray for cable routing, and with the cheap grommets I recommend a fully modular PSU for this case.
Other Thoughts: I bought this case for my media PC, and it's not bad for that application. The more I work in this case, the less I like it. I'm not going to replace it, but if I had to do it over again I would have purchased a competing product. There are better cases in this price range, and -much- better cases for only a little bit more money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-8GB
Pros: Very durable, acceptable write speed, fast and friendly customer support.
Cons: It's a bit oversized, as others have noted. Be careful not to lose the cap!
Other Thoughts: The only time I've had one of these break was when they were plugged in and the flash drive got hit by something. I once lost it, and it sat outside in the rain for a few days in the driveway, where I ran over it with my car a couple times. Plugged it back in and it still worked. I buy Flash Voyagers because they can take the abuse I put them through.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SONY Fontopia Series MDR-EX71SLA/W 3.5mm Connector Canal Headphones
Pros: Very nice highs and lows, next to no distortion, very crisp and clear sound. Firm-fitting gold plated connector. Cord is nice and short, so no mess! Comes with a handy case too.
Cons: Bass might be a bit much for some. Sticking a 6Hz sound wave directly into your ear is kinda weird at first. Sony has a weird habit of making earbud cords of different lengths for each ear, which makes wrapping the cords awkward.
Other Thoughts: You might want to get an Audigy 2 or X-Fi sound card to take full advantage of these headphones on your computer. I'm going to get a PCMCIA Audigy 2 for that reason.READ FULL REVIEW
