This review is from: Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: I bought this case to replace my CM HAF 932. The shipping invoice said this thing was 24 lbs, but you would never think that once you picked it up. Even with the components mounted.. still not that heavy (my 932, which IS a good case, was a heavy beast to maneuver around even with the wheels mounted).
The HDD cages came stacked side by side, but they are easily reconfigured to stack on top of one another by removing 2 screws.
Cable management was simple, as there is more than ample space between the back wall and door, plus a good amount of cable tie points. The side panel window is huge, which is one of the main reasons I bought this case. Also the top dust filter is magnetic and peels right off - ingenious.
The front panel that covers the front fans has a push-click latch, so you don't have to take anything apart to remove it - also ingenious.
All-in-all, this case is pretty much perfect in every way - very pleased with everything.
Cons: The one the one thing I would have liked to see is more fans. The 932 comes with 3x230mm and 1x140mm fans and they were all LED, so I really didn't have to buy any more fans. This one only has 3 140mm fans and they are not LED. Still, that's not enough to take an egg off on my rating.

This review is from: Linksys AC1900 Dual Band SMART Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (EA6900)
Pros: Good range, solid ports, fast processing, easy setup.
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what all these 1-eggers are talking about. By no means am I discounting their experience and maybe I was just lucky, but I have not had any of the issues they have. On the LAN I have:
3 PCs, 2 NAS devices, 3 media players, Xbox, TV.
Wireless I have: 5 phones, laptop, tablet.
I bought this router because of my fast connection and because the EA3500 just simply couldnt keep up with my demand. Wired, the 6900 eats whatever I throw at it for breakfast. Gaming is smooth and file copies are only limited by disk speed (I love my Samsung 840 Pro).
This thing has been in operation since Dec '13 and continues to go strong. There is the occasional reboot that is required, but I can do that whenever and from wherever I want through the cloud. The only thing I would count as a con is that the interface sometimes gets confused about the device names, but I have a spreadsheet of MAC addresses that I use for static IP addressing anyway, so it's not that big of a deal. I paid over $200 for this at the time - it's only $160 right now - I'd get one and see for yourself. There is NO router that is perfect - remember that.
This review is from: XTRAC PADS RIPPER XL Optical Mouse pad
Pros: This pad has a very nice feel to it and the mouse glides perfectly. The rubber backing on it holds it in place and there's no movement whatsoever.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: When they say "XL" they mean it. So make sure this is the size you're looking for. I have the DPI on my DeathAdder set to 1500 and I get a little "excited" during gaming.. so I needed a big surface to compensate for those sudden shifts in direction. Got exactly what I needed with this well made, inexpensive pad.READ FULL REVIEW
