This review is from: LIAN LI PC-Q03B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: The build quality is precise. I has a lot of features that make building a mini-ITX system easy, such as a removable motherboard tray and brackets that you attach your drives to. Comes with a bracket for a micro-ATX power supply that matches the case.
Cons: The metal feet will scuff certain surfaces you set this on and with them being spherical permanently attaching rubber/silicone bumpers to them is difficult. Also, the screws that are holding the the optical drive bracket in are torqued EXTREMELY tight. It is nearly impossible to take them out without stripping the screw heads (this has been the case more than one of these that I've purchased). If Lian-Li is so concerned about these coming loose, why not use some blue thread locker, rather than making them nearly impossible to remove?
Other Thoughts: Looks great. Will continue to buy them, despite the minor gripes I have. Also, using a micro ATX power supply with these makes system building much MUCH easier.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good performance for the money.
Cons: Doesn't support Windows 8 SecureBoot. (Unlike other Mfr's) PNY will not update firmware to support this. The support tech I spoke with literally said that I had bought a more expensive card, they might consider updating the firmware to fix this issue, but in my case, it would never happen. Their support website for this (and other products) is totally worthless.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a good card, it's just disappointing to hear that PNY doesn't care enough about their products/customers to provide the same level of support that other video card manufacturers do.READ FULL REVIEW
