This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V351A Silver Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Computer Case
Pros: - great looking
- nice aluminum finish
- houses ATX PSUs and full length video cards
Cons: - bigger than expected for SFF (though to house what it does, i guess its acceptable)
- inner case design seems lacking
- tools provided were cheap and broke.
- standard wires not always long enough
- though it fits ATX psu's and full length video cards, it does not do so comfortably.
- HD housing cannot fit both full size 3.5" drives, the connectors, and the HDD fan.
Other Thoughts: having owned several lian li cases, my expectations are pretty high with this company, especially due to their slightly premium price tag. i was a bit surprised that some of it felt rather cheap, unlike their other cases i've worked with. First, the mobo mounting system was shoddy. the provided tool broke the first time i used it, and the mounting screws didnt feel like they went all the way through. second, the connection for the HD Audio doesnt reach all the way around on the Biostar TH67+ mobo. at least not with a full size video card in the way. Third, after you put the mounting screws on the HDDs, the sata power and sata connections stick out too much to have room for the fan that comes with the case.
all in all... the case is alright. just don't expect the ease of use typically associated with lian li, just the final look.
This review is from: Kensington K33902US USB 2.0 Bluetooth Micro Adapter
Cons: -drivers suck
-toshiba drivers suck
-toshiba downloaded drivers have a 30 day trial
Other Thoughts: win7 x64:
this device was a bit frustrating. when i first plugged it in, it wouldn't recognize the device (despite what it claims on the MS site). So downloaded the toshiba bluetooth stack. this just ended up with windows complaining the drivers are not suitable for the computer blah blah. but the program would still run, but it would never recognize the keyboard. yes, i ran the x64 driver stack install.
so finally i just unplugged the device, uninstalled the worthless toshiba drivers completely. then i decided to stick it back in and see what happens. lo and behold, it works, and my apple wireless keyboard paired just fine.
seriously? but whatever, it works now.
