Cooler Master HAF 922 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This case is fully metal, fully painted, comes with water-cooling support, it's totally tool-less, provides massive space for massive graphics cards, has massive airflow AND is already setup to mount even more fans. It also has a sizeble cutout for mounting a sizeable CPU fan. It's stylish, and includes a built in red LED in the front. After almost 3 years of owning it I've never had a problem with it. I've seen plenty of other $100 cases and this one absolutely blows them all out of the water.

Cons: It's pretty big, and it's very heavy, even more so when filled with components. The HDD trays are tool less, but it feels much better when you just screw in the HDD. My case didn't come with any dust filters, except the disk drive compartments, right where there's really no airflow and thus, no need for dust filters. The LED on the front fan is somewhat difficult to see. It would've been nice if the case included a side window from the factory, but that is in fact available aftermarket.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook-  Intel Core i7 8GB RAM 256GB SSD 14
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Decent processor, 8GB of ram, 256GB SSD, great battery life as well as super fast charging speed.

Cons: Only has a 265GB SSD, Windows will probably take up 16-25GB of that. No discrete GPU, only integrated (heat!). The screen is only 14in and isn't even 1080p (its 900p), there's no optical drive (bye bye DVDs), the battery is NOT replaceable, and is integrated, so once the battery is dead, you've got a $1,500 brick.

Other Thoughts: Frankly, I don't own this laptop. However, according to the specifications, as a consumer, you can do a LOT better with $1,500. This laptop is NOT worth that much money. You could custom build an AMAZING desktop for that much. You could also get a much better laptop with that kind of cash. I have no idea why this laptop's price is so high. I'd pay more like $300-450 for specs that bad.

Cooler Master HAF 922 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: VERY good air flow, cool temps even at high load, sturdy construction, spacious, and customizable, huge gpus will fit in this case, and it's set up for water cooling from the get go, many options for cable routing and management. With a glass window, some LED's, and a water cooler for the cpu like an H100i, this case looks gorgeous.

Cons: Attracts a lot of dust, there doesn't seem to be any filters, the red LED fan the case comes with is very dim, the metal mesh on the top of the case is a little flimsy, the water cooling grommets on the back of the case tend to fall inside if they're pushed, and they're REALLY annoying to get back out. The case is rather heavy and pretty big/bulky for a mid-tower case, it was very difficult trying to install a cpu cooler because the cut out for the back of the mobo was somewhat small and finally, I can't seem to charge USB devices using the ports on the front.

Other Thoughts: For $100 this case was a steal, and I'd recommend it to anyone. It had a few cons, yes, but I've had the case for 2 going on 3 years now. I wouldn't expect it to be perfect.
