LIAN LI PC-B25F Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 03/27/2012

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-B25F Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I bought these as an alternative to the chore of constantly having to connect my phone or laptop o our entertainment system every time we wanted to play music on decent speakers. Now we can simply play directly from our PC. The bass is loud and the bass knob is nice to have for adjusting depending on what were listening to at the time.

I positioned the subwoofer aimed at the wall and I can fill our living space with bass.

The satellites have crisp highs and decent range for 35W each. At 50% power on the volume knob my wife finally got nervous during my test and told me that was enough. ;)

More than enough power to fill our 900 sq/ft downtown (meaning loud) apartment.

No giant power brick or 3-prong plug. Unboxing was excellent. Terrific packaging design.

Cons: Proprietary connectors so not scalable.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for anyone looking for an all-in-one PC speaker solution on a budget with not much space to work with.

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Does everything as advertised. Boot times cut in half (Win7 Home x64). Installed Windows with updates in ~20 mins.

Application performance is also better, as is gaming performance (CoD Black Ops, L4D2, CnC3:KW).

Seamless install on my Dell XPS M1530. Very happy with this purchase. I think it's worth the few extra bucks over a standard 500GB 7200rpm 2.5" HDD.

Upgraded firmware with no problem (5 minutes plus a reboot) and Windows Experience score went up .2 points (from 5.9 to 6.1).

Cons: None so far. I haven't witnessed any of the issues some of the others are having.

Other Thoughts: Upgrading from another OEM Seagate 160GB 7200rpm HDD that came in my Dell XPS M1530. It just died so I bought the XT 500GB as a replacement. After reading some of the comments I was a little hesitant so I waited a few months. Also my OEM HDD dying helped me to pull the trigger. :)

Not sure if some of these other posters are getting bad drives or what but I have witnessed zero problems and am very happy with this purchase.

Western Digital WD Green WD15EARS 1.5TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought this along with an external hard drive case to serve my home backup needs. Was faster than I expected being a "green" drive, but I'm sure the 64MB cache has something to do with that. Works perfectly.

Cons: None for me.
