Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Good overall, some issues 07/06/2014

This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: First of all, I like the design. The front isn't really as 'metallic' as it appears in the photo, but it's a good-looking case. it also fits all my components well while staying sufficiently compact.

Cons: It's got really lightweight, thin metal and can cut you if you're not careful. I've sliced my finger trying to get a stubborn PCI card out of the case. Also, the front USB ports are awful. The only things that work in them are flash drives. Anything with a cable will need to be plugged into the motherboard directly. If I can find some better cables to put inside the case, I might try that.

Other Thoughts: It's not a bad case, but I still think it could be better for the price, especially regarding the quality of the front USB ports and the cabling that goes to them.

4 out of 5 eggs Decent case, good price 01/29/2014

This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: It's small, but big enough for a standard ATX power supply.

It comes with two fans (and the front fan is gigantic).

All my components fit nicely inside with plenty of room (although I am using one of the 'skinny' mATX motherboards).

Cons: The 'look' in real life doesn't match the pictures on here.

The metal is thin and flimsy-feeling, but as long as you're not rough with it, it should be fine.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty happy with the case for the price, other than the fact that the real-life look doesn't match the picture. The metallic-looking bits at the top and bottom in the picture are quite a bit darker than in the photo, almost black in fact (very dark grey), and are obviously made of what I like to call 'sparkly plastic'. They did a good job with the 'brushed' look, though. The power button is also black (I thought from the photo that it would be silver). I could see the case looking like the photo if the photo was taken with an overly bright flash, but under normal lighting it won't ever look like that. Aside from that, it's very nice, and I only wish I had a black faceplate for my floppy drive so that it didn't look so out of place compared to the rest of the case (it's nice and beige).

AOC E2425SWD Black 24
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -High contrast ratio
-Energy efficient
-Lots of menu options

Cons: -Poor viewing angles
-Awkward button placement
-Confusing adjustment of some settings

Other Thoughts: I just bought one of these from Staples for, oddly enough, the same price as here on NewEgg. I've been less than impressed. I suppose it's not really a bad monitor, but it has some annoying things about it that will lead me to return it tomorrow. My number one problem is the viewing angle. It's so much worse than my old ProView monitor that was made in '07. It's not just the uneven brightness that gets me (practically every LCD monitor has uneven brightness), it's that the farther off center you look on the screen, the more yellow and dingy the colors look. I mean, that happens with any LCD monitor if you view it at a severe enough angle, but with this monitor I can see the effect just being seated with my head dead center a couple of feet away from the monitor. The corners, especially the upper ones, appear noticeably more yellow than the rest of the screen at a normal viewing distance. Aside from that, it has some confusing menu options and it seemed to put some odd outlines around text on the screen (especially text with a grey background). I was able to get around the weird outlines on text by turning on a 'bright window' and setting it to fill the entire screen, but doing so made a lot of the other picture control options ineffective. So all in all, I'm not very satisfied with this monitor. I can see how some people might be willing to put up with it, but I suppose I'm just a little too OCD to deal with it and would rather try to squeeze a little more life out of my aging ProView than deal with this monitor for more than a day. Back to Staples it shall go!
