This review is from: AFT PRO-57U USB 3.0 5.25" Bay, CompactFlash/ SDHC/ SDXC/ microSD/ microSDXC/ miniSD/ miniSDHC/ MultiMediaCard/ Memory Stick/ xD-Picture Card. All-in-one Internal Media Card Reader
Pros: 1.Works right out of the box. Win7 recognized right away and installed driver.
2. Mobo 20pin adapter is great. I got it on a gigabyte z68xp-udp3.
3. slot for microsd is great for me.
4. 5.25 form made it sit flush with my dvd drive. cleaned up the look on my case a little
Cons: Pricey but if it works longer than the cheapy internal ones then in the long run you are better off. If i dont have to use an external card reader it just makes things look cleaner on my desk which would be worth it.
Other Thoughts: I snaked the usb3 cables through some power cables to take some of the weight off of the 20pin adapter on the mobo.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price was right
Cons: Oh where to begin. Bought it for my new system. Doesnt work. Called Rosewill who I have to say has great customer service. Actually spoke to a real live English speaking person. Anyways he said this model doesnt play nice with 64bit win 7. Even though I updated the drivers blah blah blah its hit or miss. I aint gonna RMA this cause the shipping cost would equal the product itself. What a waste of time. So sad.
Other Thoughts: Really wish Newegg would change from UPS to Fedex. I really hate UPS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IN WIN Dragon Rider Black 1.0 - 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Chose this case for my first self build. Was wavering between this and Antec 1200 V3 but since I already had a Antec 900 I wanted to go with something different. Anyways... Looks very nice. Nice blue leds. Easy case to build with. Lots of space. It's huge! Cable management was easy. I like the easy install cages. Had a nice slot for SSD. Side panel takes 6 120mm fans which is nice. Those swivel feet on the bottom holds it nice and secure.
Cons: Hmm what I didnt like.
- The top I/O panel has too much flex when you plug something in. It works but my old Antec case didnt have any flex.
- DVD burner doesnt quite sit flush with the front of the case. Kinda sits a little back. Wish it sat just a touch forward.
- The 220 mm fan on the side panel definitely touches my Zalman cpu cooler. Just enough to bend it a little. I read someone just shaved it down and I guess you could do that. I'm going to put 4 new 120mm fans instead.
Other Thoughts: All in all I'm very happy with the case. Looks great. Cools nicely. I got my i7 to 4.2 and it runs a nice 30c under normal load. Dual GTX 580 sli runs 40 idle and 79 load. I think it will be cooler once I get my new side fans in. Oh well not bad for my first build
