Pros: Overall nice quality for the price, decently solid materials. Good amount of holes and space on the back/bottom area ("behind" the right-side panel.)
Drive cage has a nice tool-less system design/idea, that seems quite nice once you figure it out.
Cons: The design doesn't work with the funky window cutout.
The drives are supposed to be mounted in "backwards", i.e. w/ the power/sata ports facing away from the window. This would be fine, if:
1 - The manual mentioned that.
2 - The manual pictures didn't show it them the *wrong* way!
3 - That the fancy window shape didn't interfere with the tool-less mounting rails. YES, I have the drives oriented correctly, YES the drives are pushed in all the way against the little nub stops until they click. The edge of the blue window cutout is catching on the mounting rail, at least with some of the drive slots. Go through the reviews of some of the other color versions, you'll find several people that can't actually close the case, even after figuring out the cable orientation.
I might be able to fix it by re-arranging drives, which means pulling the other cover off, and trying to make the power cables match up to the magic spot that won't catch on the side panel.
Other Thoughts: Not my style, but others like it. Overall nice quality, but with a fatal flaw. Stay away if you plan to use more than 2 or 3 drives.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G35 USB 2.0 Connector Surround Sound Headset
Pros: Sounds much better than el cheapos.
Software seems pretty decent.
Emulated 7.1 is better than nothing.
Cons: Hurts like heck! It's just heavy and incredibly uncomfortable to wear - ears hurt and my neck aches after just setting it up and testing in a couple games and music, no matter how I adjust it.
Got some cracking/popping/static when games init sound/switch tracks or similar.
Surround effect is...minimal. No better, possibly worse than I was getting with a cheapie headset and the free razr surround emulation.
Apparently it cause The Witcher 2 to crash to desktop - at least it's never done it before.
Other Thoughts: Since it's a refurb, NewEgg says it's not eligible for a refund. :( My fault for not checking that I guess, but now I have to find someone with a neck made of steel and fifty bucks...
(Also it was missing one of the head bands, and one head band was kinda deformed looking. Not a huge deal, but...)
This review is from: ASUS RT-N10P Wireless N150 Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Price vs features, firmware and UI.
Cons: Only the features you're trading off for the price: no 5Ghz, no GigE, no USB ports, doesn't make breakfast. No auto-check for firmware updates.
Other Thoughts: Purchased for a client with simple/modest needs on a residential DSL. My first use of ASUS-branded anything for wireless, but it came up fast, it was easy to set the important things and update to the latest firmware. (I did not have time to explore the more advanced features, no idea if you can run alternative firmware on it.) It's been in use for about a week, hopefully it will be as solid as it seems.READ FULL REVIEW
