This review is from: Rosewill RANGER-M - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Size, weight, vented front panel
Cons: Weight, wasted drive cages space, no 140mm holes drilled.
Is there a single buyer who mounted 2 DVD drives in mini tower? I don't even need one. Today DVD existence is warranted for only one thing: installing Win 7.

This review is from: SilenX EFZ-100HA2 100mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler
Cons: Useless: not PWM, spins at 2300 rpm making lots of noise even when processor is idle; i5 stock which it replaced was PWM. There is mfr disclaimer why they don't use PWM. Ironically, the explanation is the same on all their products: be it tiny 70 mm fan for this heatsink, or huge (and therefore slow spinning, silent) 140 mm case fan. I read it as thinly veneered cost saving.
Other Thoughts: I ended up unscrewing the fan, and put 120 mm on top.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great update from 24" both resolution and screen size wise.
Cons: Doesn't withstand cost/benefit analysis. Price for 30" held steady for 3 years already -- this is a misnomer in tech world. Today one can purchase a pair of good-enough 46" 1080p LCD TVs for the price of one 30" monitor?READ FULL REVIEW
