This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very minimal and compact design without compromising the ability to use full-size components apart from the microATX motherboard. Unique HDD/SSD mounts allow full-length video cards.
Cons: The very same minimal and compact design requires that builders using this case have a decent amount of skill to successfully put it together. It's definitely a tight fit, and I wouldn't dream of using this case on a PC that I plan to remove or upgrade anything in for a long time. For me, this build will eventually graduate into a personal server, so small form-factor was the deciding feature. Still, a double-edged blade. Make sure you know what you're getting into.
Other Thoughts: The HDD/SSD mounts took me about an hour of trying different things before having to google it. It works great, I'm just an idiot that couldn't figure out how it worked.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Gold plated
Short cable (longer cables, especially cheap ones, lose more power over the length)
Snug connector doesn't fall out
Cons: Short cable, obviously unsuitable for those who need a longer cable
Snug connector is great for me, keeps the thing firmly in there, others may not like it
Other Thoughts: I never feel like the connector is too snug or tight, but it does require a good push and a good tug to insert and remove it.
All in all, it was perfect for my personal usage. If you want a connector that doesn't fall out, don't need/want a long cable, you'll not find a better cable. Especially cheap considering it has gold plating and ferrite. It should go without saying that if you want a long cable or a less firm connection, you shouldn't purchase this.
Pros: Large, yet fits perfectly into the right hand, giving a great precise feel.
Two very distinct side buttons. Too many buttons annoys me, two is plenty.
Dimpled scroll wheel is very satisfying to use.
Lasted two years of daily, very very heavy use.
Cons: Relatively low DPI compared to modern high performance mice.
Friend broke my scroll wheel, now I have to buy a new one :( Might upgrade to a higher tier Gigabyte mouse.
Other Thoughts: If you want a cheap, simple, comfortable mouse, you're on the right page. After using this mouse for so long, no other feels quite the same, none have fit my hand quite the way this one does.READ FULL REVIEW
