Pros: It works
Cons: The USB and audio cable is too short to use for a laptop without extensions. What were they thinking? This adapter is probably most used for a laptop. The audio, in particular, needs generally to go all the way in the front. So it is shy of only 1 inch because they were to cheap to even add a full 12 inches. Actually, I needed just 1 more inch on the audio and it would have fit. I even needed an extension to reach the USB port
Other Thoughts: I gave it 3 eggs because of the short cables but it does work. So now you have to pay for more cables when $25 is enough anyway.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I really like this power supply; granted it is not modular but I love how long cables are, particularly the CPU cable. I have a mid tower case. The CPU cable is so long that I am able to route it around my motherboard keeping it out of sight. I have a 900 watt Antec and disappointed how short the CPU cable was. I had to route it over the video card which generally seems the case. Some complained that the cables were too long. I love how long they are. It gives you plenty of room to play with them.
Cons: It is not modular but I didn't want to pay extra for a modular PSU, so it is not really a con.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: I was choosing between the Antec three hundred two and this Corsair 200R computer case due to pricing. I have to agree with the reviews. I liked the Antec three hundred from a previous build but it was messy; whereas, as the reviews say, it is a joy to build with the Corsair 200R. There is just plenty of room to maneuver and hide the cables. It has very nice 4 ssd drive bays that easily fit in. You do need the spacers for your SSD drives that usually come with it to make for a snugger fit. And they have 4 bays for your 3.5 hard drive that face towards you but have to be plugged in from the other side. They are all plastic but I was satisfied how well they fit and snapped in place.Due to it's width, it can accommodate these monster sized video cards nowadays. The Antec three hundred was a little tight for the video card but there was enough for it to fight..
Cons: I don't know if I like the power supply on the bottom but that seems to be the trend. You have to be careful if you put this case on a rug. I would recommend putting a board underneath or thick plastic sheet.. It also makes it farther for the CPU power supply cable to reach. It could always be cheaper :) But I liked the nice clean look and there were no sharp edges. Beautiful interior. All black. So I was satisfied. I wanted to buy the Antec three hundred two since it was $10 cheaper but I decided to to just spend the extra $10 since the Antec Three hundred two was messy.
Other Thoughts: The only thing that bothers me with newer cases is that the power supply is on the bottom; so the CPU power supply cable has to reach all the way across the motherboard. But when you add a video card, it is tight to stretch over the video card. I decided to buy the CABLE STARTECH| ATXP4EXT RT. This OCZ 600 watt skimped on the CPU power supply cable. I actually haven't put the video card in yet, but I can see it is going to be tight like my previous build with the Antec 300.READ FULL REVIEW
