This review is from: Logitech MK120 Wired USB Keyboard and Mouse - Black
Pros: It's cheap. It types well. The feet on the bottom don't break off from just having your hands on the keyboard. I have no complaints about these keyboards.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: I'm not an angry German/Austrian trying to play Unreal so it should hold up for most things.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a good monitor for most things like web surfing, YouTube, movies, basic games, etc.
The base for a monitor this cheap is hefty enough.
It didn't come with dead pixels.
Cons: The way the monitor attaches to the base is really bizarre. I have another Acer monitor where it slips in a slot and you tighten it. This thing on the other hand has two interlocking pieces of metal to I assume make the design tool less, but it makes it hard to fit in right. Oh yes, tilting it is horrible. There's a screw inside that's nearly impossible to loosen with average tools and trying to tilt the base without loosening it feels like you'll make it crack like a KitKat bar. No, I don't want a break of that.
Other Thoughts: It's a good monitor if you don't mind fiddling around with its quirks to get it working.
I didn't test the built in speakers. Why try those when you can use a decent set of speakers?
This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED
Pros: Was building a desktop computer for my mom and had a friend help choose out parts. We eventually chose this as the price was right and it looked adequate enough.
We were both surprised by how sturdy the case felt for the price. Very stable and doesn't vibrate from drives running hard. It also has enough room for okay cable management even when using a non modular PSU as long as you get a little creative. The SSD bay on the side works well - feels very clean being out of the way and unnoticeable.
The tool less drive bay is nice. Fits 3.5 or 2.5 easily.
The included fans are very quiet. The loudest thing you can hear from this case is the regular HDD spinning. Or I'm deaf. Your mileage may vary.
Cons: The power and reset buttons feel cheap. They're like something on a Fisher Price knockoff.
The drive bay on the bottom cannot be removed, or at least we didn't find a way to remove it so we could move cables around more. Speaking of the bay, plugging SATA cables into your drives can be kinda awkward since the space where every other I/O cable goes through is already kinda packed making it difficult to feed the cable into to keep everything clean looking. There's also very little room behind the bay to plug them into the drives - very cramped.
The I/O cables in our case weren't labeled clearly for some reason.
Tons of ventilation, to the point where anything can get in. Gonna need to buy a lot of canned air for this.
Other Thoughts: I'd imagine it you wanted to install more fans for something like a liquid cooled setup all the extra vent mount points would give you a lot of options.
My mom was happy with having a new computer and she finds it pretty, especially the blue lights on the front.
