Pros: It a good, reliable drive that *used* to be cheap.
Cons: The price has more than doubled from a couple years ago when I bought a few of these drives. Apparently this is due to flooding in Thailand, the major world supplier of HDDs.
Other Thoughts: I'd probably wait on buying any HDD until the problems in Thailand are sorted out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is thin, light, and consumes less power than a traditional LCD.
Cons: The first thing I noticed was that the monitor had major color balance issues out of the box. All the colors were washed out. Installing the 'Magictune' program that came with the monitor allows you to adjust the color to a slight degree, but not enough to fix the problem. Eventually I had to go into the control panel for my video card and set the color balance directly from there. Even then, I could never get the balance right... reds always came out looking magenta or pink.
Secondly, ghosting is a major problem on this monitor. Its very noticeable in games.
Thirdly, the construction of this monitor is way too cheap. The screen pivots on a cheap plastic ball joint, but only by a few degrees back and forth. The screen shakes like a leaf due to the slightest vibration, such as when typing. I guess this is to be expected when the screen is supported by nothing but a thin stalk of acrylic.
Also there's no wall/desk mounting ability, as it does not have the holes to attach a mount
Other Thoughts: This monitor is priced far too high for the cheap quality that you get.
Samsung's decision to replace actual buttons with touch-sensitive panels is cool for the first few days of using it, but then it becomes a tedious gimmick because it often wont register a hit if you don't press it just right.
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-65B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, light, well designed as most Lian Li cases are, good build quality.
Cons: Lian Li gets most things right, but the front USB ports are a real problem on this case. First, they are located at floor level... making it difficult to plug in a USB device. They should be located on top of the case. I would think the majority of people have their towers on the floor, rather than at desk level, so its seems odd they would put the ports at the very bottom of the case.
Second, the USB ports are TOO CLOSE together. Plugging in a large thumb drive, for instance, will render the opposite USB port useless since its blocked.
Finally, the blue LED power light is a bit too bright.
Other Thoughts: Overall its a decent case, but the USB issue always annoys me whenever i have to plug in a USB device into the front.READ FULL REVIEW
