This review is from: Zotac ZBOX CI320 nano Desktop Computer - Intel Celeron N2930 1.83 GHz - Mini PC
Pros: Small, inexpensive. Works great with 4GB ram and cheap Mushkin 60GB ssd.
Cons: Could not get it to work with usb cd-rom drive installing windows 7 from disc. Spent 3 hours trying to figure out. I'm really not a fan of American Megatrends BIOS'.
Other Thoughts: Put your windows install onto a bootable usb to install it.
It's not going to knock your socks off, but for a casual browsing pc in your living room, you can't beat the $ and the size.
This review is from: DELL AX510PA Flat Panel Stereo Sound Bar
Pros: Great look! Really looks sleek and professional under your Dell monitor. Mine had 2 headphone jacks on the side. Uses the power jack under your monitor so no power cables to your outlet***
Cons: Sound quality is what you would expect. Nothing fancy, average sound. The white light in the center is a tad bright and distracting. Black electrical tape would fix this.
Other Thoughts: ***need to make sure your Dell monitor supports sound bars. Just google your monitor and take a look at pictures of the back. If it has those 2 clips in the back and the power port, then you are fine.
***It also comes with an AC power adapter. If your monitor doesnt have the power jack underneath then the included AC power jack allows you to plug it into the wall!
Also, you really could use this with any monitor and just leave it sitting on the desk.
This review is from: LEPA Casino 1C (LPVC1C12P-BL) 120mm Blue LED Case Fan
Pros: Looks cool when fan runs at full speed. Not terribly priced.
Cons: Ok, here it comes. The 4-pin connection is used by the motherboard to vary the RPM of the fan. (To control the speed of the fan). The problem is that when you set the BIOS to control the fan using the PWM setting, THE LIGHTS DON'T TURN ON! So, for my mobo, the only way to get the light show is to run the fan at full speed. And it is loud. If you use the SMART fan option (either voltage, auto, or PWM) you will not get the lights to show. This is absolutely ridiculous and should be corrected by the manufacturer.
Other Thoughts: Now, if your using the pc heavy and it actually causes the fan to spin higher the light might actually go on but I haven't tested that.
Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3. A 5ish year old board.
