This review is from: be quiet! SILENT BASE 800 ATX Full Tower PC Case - Silver
Pros: Amazing sleek modern design. Quiet, even with 5 fans (true they are be quiet! fans). Wonderful cord management options for a clean look when you're finished. I love the professional feel of the case.
Cons: The case is designed so that the direction the door opens can be switched, however, changing the position of the door reveled a major flaw. The plastic pegs that the screws attach to on the door are extremely thin, and very prone to breaking. If this happens, the only way to secure them is to drive them partially through the door. It is tragically ugly having a screw end protruding from the front of such a sleek case. Before resorting to this, I attempted to return the door to its original position. The exact same thing happened even though I was being extremely careful.
Other Thoughts: The plastic peg holding the door needs to be redesigned! It is way to easy to break, and either renders the door unusable or makes the screw stick out of the door.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad S415 14" Touch AMD A6-5200 4GB / 500GB HD Win 8 (59385549)
Pros: If you want something cheap and surprisingly capable, yet still very portable, and light look no further.
And theirs even a touchscreen!
This laptop manages to keep pace with my kids casual online/offline games and habits.
As well as my own productivity, and online habits.
It does all of this with a surprising efficiency for its price.
Cons: The laptop has a bit of flex if mishandled.
The design while light sacrificed the battery for weight it will only last 3-4 hours, with good use.
I've noticed the fan while silent can make it's presence known in a rather quite room/environment. The fan profile is to aggressive I've observed no heat coming from this thing, yet the fan at 50%+ load makes a ramp to a noticeable sound. Again in a rather quite room otherwise it can drown out it's own "noise".
Other Thoughts: Those of you no convinced, well I believe it helps with windows 8 greatly in it's rather awkward navigation. The touchscreen performs rather well, it only really seems to misbehave because of the software.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-Link TL-ANT2405C 2.4GHz 5dBi Indoor/Desktop Omni-directional Antenna
Pros: Took a signal from an average router and made the differences between no (or hardly any) reception to amazing or surprising reception.
Cons: Next day shipping with rush processing wasn't free.
Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these the first one was when we were borrowing my neighbors wifi, then we got the second with a new NIC . The difference between upstairs (plugged directly into the router) and down stairs (wifi) is NONE. Third one was for the kids computer when one of them broke the USB NIC, and we used an old PCI NIC. Well 40 feet away and through 3 walls and a brick fire place the antenna it had didn't cut it, this did!
Very satisfied with this product!
