This review is from: Samokleykin Sticker Filter - PC Fan Dust Filter 850x155x5mm
Pros: foam filter material, intended to self-adhere to clean surface. packaging is reusable. advertised measurements are accurate.
product is easily attached in spite of poor adhesive, and thin enough to mount between fan and case without hitting fan blades.
this stuff is a welcome addition to a sparse selection of customizable filter material.
Cons: adhesive not permanent but
*way* overpriced for cheap foam, and that combined with international shipping (no fault of merchant) equals poor value (strictly my opinion).
Other Thoughts: order was placed, merchant shipped, and tracking # issued within 1 day of order. no tracking info for entirety of delivery, which took almost a month. of course, this was not the fault of the merchant, who was very responsive and quick to blame the USPS. also, package was sent registered mail, so i had to make a trip to the post office. maybe not a problem for some, but an inconvenience for me. all this hassle would be eliminated if Newegg would stock the item in-country.
i would buy this product again for a lower price and shipping from within the USA.
Pros: extremely high quality build and finish. no sharp edges anywhere inside or out. thumbscrews everywhere. yards of cooling options including room for more than 1 radiator. very sturdy and solid feel, especially on the top and side panels. power supply has isolated air-flow with removable filter. front bezel is easily removed (no harness) and inexpensive to replace or to have a spare if you are modding. also, power supply has a love-it or hate-it unique mounting plate... i think it's great because it makes for easy access and allows for partially sliding out the p/s during the build. finish is flat-black and exactly the same inside as outside.
CM did not skimp on the quality with this case.
Cons: not many cons, and none worth removing an egg from the rating. limited options for cable management due to case size. adding liquid cooling limits air-flow options if you're not planning on modifying the case. a third of the fan options are 2x80mm... and that is the entire forced-air option for the lower level (where the drives live). only removable filter is under case for power supply... the front filter mesh is built-in the bezel and will need either vacuuming or remove-and-wash.
Other Thoughts: do not listen to reviews saying there is a problem with the x-dock controller card. the only issue is an upside-down mounted molex connector that, if you're not shining a light on, can easily be connected wrong. light your work area and you won't have a problem. e-atx motherboards may fit (some will, some wont, depends on physical size) with small mods.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1st call in to ASUS support I landed a bad one. The person who handled the RMA was great. :-)
Cons: Still 2 eggs for the originally stated reasons...READ FULL REVIEW
