This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB - Brown
Pros: All in all a high quality product. Functions as expected.
Cons: After a year and a half of ownership (beyond the 1 year warranty) the tablet would no longer start. The screen would flash briefly when the power button was depressed, but nothing else happened. The battery also would not charge. Upon further research, I found that a common issue caused the battery connection to become loose. I was able to easily open the case and plug the battery back in, and now it works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech MDP2DVIS Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter
Pros: Works well, solidly built. Bought this to run a third monitor in AMD Eyefinity on a Radeon HD 6950 and it works like a charm. Now if only it was cheaper...
Cons: not free. It annoys me that AMD advertises their video cards as supporting 3 monitors, but you need to buy an adapter to actually use three.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec TWO HUNDRED S Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: I've always liked Antec's cases, and this one is no exception. There's tons of space and plenty of room for cable management alongside the drive bays.
One qualm I've had with Antec's cases is their use of molex power connectors for the case fans, as opposed to 3-pin connectors. This means the fans are drawing power directly from the PSU, not via the motherboard, so the fan speeds cannot be set using software.
That being said, there are some variable speed switches on the back of the case which make adjusting fan speeds a snap (not all Antec cases have this, so I was pleasantly surprised).
The front cover is metal, but it has a fabric insert attached to the inside of the front bezel, which acts as a filter, and there are fan mounts for two additional 120 mm fans in the front.
Oh and this case is very well built and sturdy.
Cons: No 3 1/2 inch drive bay mounts. Although it's not advertised as such, Antec cases I've bought in the past included a bracket for mounting a 3 1/2 inch drive in one of the 5 1/2 inch drive bays.
Front i/o cables are a little short, you might have to stretch them right over top of the motherboard.
