This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Pros: This case is really quiet. I do not know if it is on unless I look at the light.
The holes in the case for routing wiring are well planned, I was able to keep the case really tidy.
The case is very solid, it feels like metal and definitely weighs like it. However, when picking it up be careful what you grab for, the front of the case is on hinges as you see in the picture.
It is really cool temperature-wise, coming from a full tower with plenty of fans I wasn't so sure about just having two case fans. Turns out two is more than enough.
Also, the case is very spacious, I have a 3rd party cooler and GTX 760, both have an ample amount of room.
Finally, as someone living with 2 dogs and 2 cats, I am very happy with the case's very fine filters and airflow direction.
Cons: I'm not so sure about having paid $120 for a case, but I'm still happy with my product.
Other Thoughts: don't bother with liquid cooling or extra fansREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The monitor is exceptionally vibrant coming from a non-LED lit matte screen. The colors were also unusual to me at first but that is because the monitor was not set to 'warm' by default.
The touch responsiveness and accuracy is really impressive for how much was paid. I'm personally interested in seeing Microsoft's hybrid OS works out. That is my primary reason for paying the extra $50 for touch capabilities.
The viewing angles on the screen are really great; however, please remember that on glass screens, glare always gets the last laugh.
Having built in speakers is really convenient, but allow me to also emphasize build quality here. This monitor is incredibly sturdy and feels very solid. The kickstand in back was really well made. I personally expected it to be flimsy.
One final note, I love how little room the monitor takes up. Usually, the base stand on monitors tends to take quite a bit of space in an effort to keep the monitor stable.
Cons: Built-in speakers. They are both a pro and a con.
They are very quite and lack bass. In fact, many headphones at 100% volume are louder than the speakers in this monitor.
But, with a decent sound card or amplifier these speakers will do just fine. My sound card just about doubled the volume, which makes up enough sound for my instrumental/classic music and gaming.
Buying an external pair of speakers is an option but there goes some of the space saving.
Other Thoughts: In my opinion, this monitor is worthwhile buying. Might as well enjoy the touchscreen revolution :)READ FULL REVIEW
