Pros: Really Compact, very quiet (if you have fan control on the motherboard). Seems solid. Makes a good everyday computer case, I have built two of them now in the last week using ASUS Z97I-PLUS motherboards. The kicker here is that the mother board has both a mini PCI-e and a M.2 (on the underside of the board) so I am able to have a mechanical HD and a Solid state drive with one more solid state drive bay open. However, I used the second 3.5 inch bay for cable management. To top it off there is a fill size blue ray drive in it as well!
Cons: The major con here is that in one of the builds I installed a GT 730 half height card inside and there is absolutely no clearance from the side of the case and the GPU fan. I had to cut vents in. It would be nice to see the case made 1/2 inch taller to allow some ventilation for a GPU. The other is that the front panel audio connector is a bit short for the motherboard, to short to route it around the CPU instead it got over top of the CPU. Other motherboards could be fine. As hinted in the PROS there is was not a thought for cable management and there is old school floppy and molex connectors on the power supply, I just cut them off to save space.
Other Thoughts: Both of the people that I built them for are really happy with the size of the computers, dead is the full or even micro ATX case for web browsing computers. Most people buy a computer with extra room for upgrading and then never use it, why then have a bigger case. I will probably build one for myself for my living room.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Picked this up 9/30/2008. Been running cool and quiet ever since. One of the most reliable pieces of hardware ever owned, no problems out of it.
Cons: They dont make them any more. Power off switch is on the inside of the case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW505 12" Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: I picked this sub up 7 years or so ago when it cost $600. It still works great not a problem from it.
Cons: If used on hardwood floors and at high volume it will have a tendency to vibrate (walk like an old washing machine) across the room.
Other Thoughts: I would not call it room filling bass, if you can get it for less than two hundred I would buy 2 of them, then you will have room filling bass without the sub having to work hard.
Mine gets minimal use now since I built a Transmission Line box and use 2 10inch Dayton reference subs powered by true 1200Watts RMS, but now that I have kids it hardly gets used for its full potential.
