Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Buy This Cabinet! 11/15/2013

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is unquestionably the best mid-tower I've ever purchased. Both sides come off, with thumbscrews. The power supply (not included) fits on the bottom, enhancing stability. Fans on top and rear move a lot of air, and if extra air is needed one or two fans can be mounted in front.. The metalwork is burr- and sharp-edge free. A bag of hardware is included, with a handful of plastic ties. Overall, a real gem.

Cons: None, other than the fact it wasn't free.

ECS X77H2-A3 v1.2 LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought this board for its specifications and the five five-star reviews. I am not disappointed. The board's layout is adequately roomy: nothing's difficult to plug in. It booted correctly on first power-up and has run smoothly since. This is an ideal mobo for a simple mid-range computer project.

Cons: About the only con--and it's a small one--is that the BIOS setup screen was designed by a graphics artist, not a computer engineer. It's arty, but it's not easily figured out. I still can't guarantee I have everything optimized. At least the factory defaults work OK.

And, of course, the installation disc has assorted bloatware, but you can run the installation disk by looking at the folders thereon and clicking "Setup" if it looks necessary.

Other Thoughts: This is my first ECS board, and I'm very favorably impressed. I've used mainline manufacturer's boards before, and--thus far--the ECS is their equal, if not better.

Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Standard Edition
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great printer but..... 09/02/2013

This review is from: Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Standard Edition

Pros: Excellent print quality: setup panel covers almost every imaginable combination of paper and print options: silent: works find with USB 2.0: automatic black ink selection.

Cons: Expensive ink ($500 for a full set of cartridges): took 37% of the factory-supplied cartridge set to "charge" the printer.

When printing from Photoshop CS5 (or 4 or 6), you are likely to get a message "The saved printer is not compatible with this version Photoshop..." If you get this message, or if nothing happens when you click "Print," you will be in a world of hurt, There is apparently no true, simply, solution to this problem, which appears to be an Adobe bug compounded by Epson's firmware.

And this too: as the other reviewer noted, the printer's LCD messages were clearly written by someone who isn't a native English speaker.

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best printer out there in the advanced amateur/low-end pro range. If I could print problem-free I'd give it six stars, but it's being quite a hassle.
