Other Thoughts: Love the all black interior and the orange claw design in the front. Bottom mounted PSU. Good cable management. 2 HDD cages (top one is removable) accomodating a total of 8 possible drives. There are 2 slots up top for 5.25" options (DVD, Fan Controllers, SD Readers, etc). Overall tool-less design (including the back PCI plate covers).
Cooling -- Comes with 4 fans (2x 120mm LED, 1x 120mm, 1x 140mm). Supports 6 fans total. No option for side mounted (GPU cooling) fan. Wide enough to support air coolers up to 175mm tall (Hyper 212 Evo, etc). Liquid cooling holes already drilled w/ rubber grommets.
Hardware -- Interior is nice and the space behind the main tray is adequate for running cables. The PCI card slot covers are removed by screws.
Extras -- Front panel options are all at the top of the case. 2x USB 2.0 & 2x USB 3.0 slots. HD Audio connections for both headphones & mic, large power button in the center and a smaller reset button on the right. Includes extra screws & zip ties. Manual could be better (but all case manuals are that way)
Overall -- For under a $100 you get a really nice, mid-tower ATX case with 4 fans preinstalled (2x orange LED), support for both air & liquid cooling CPU designs, front panel USB 2.0 & 3.0, Tool-less design throughout, removable HDD cages, good cable management options, and bottom mounted PSU.
This review is from: Audiovox FMDIRB
Pros: Price, Works Seamlessly with Audiovox/Advent Players, Long Audio Cord, No more interference!
Cons: Doesn't fit all car antennas/radios (needed adapters for both radio and antenna for late model dodge caravan... Metra EU-40). Comes with old school antenna plug, so check your radio first!
Other Thoughts: This works as a wired FM modulator. It requires a device that transmits FM output through a 3.5mm jack.
This is found on the underside of most Audiovox and Advent brand overhead DVD players.
The antenna plug goes into the back of your radio in the dash. You may need an adapter for this, I did. Your existing antenna plug goes into the metal box (again an adapter may be needed). The long wire is then routed behind/under the dash, up the side support beam, across the headliner to the DVD player and the 3.5 mm plug goes into the underside if the DVD player. Most radio shops can install this module for a reasonable price ($100-200 USD) if you aren't comfortable with this process.
It works best if you disconnect the little blue FM wire from the player first.
Now when you turn on the player, whatever channel you've chosen on the DVD player will be transmitted via the wire to your radio. No interference at all.
This WILL NOT work as a direct sound output (ie. From an iPod)
This review is from: Logitech MK120 Wired USB Keyboard and Mouse - Black
Pros: Nice, clean design. Mouse is comfortable (and can be easily used by a left-handed individual). Excellent price.
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice, wired keyboard and mouse combo. As long as you understand what you are getting (basic keyboard, two button mouse with a center, clickable scroll wheel), you should be very happy.
It does not have back-lit keys, it doesn't have dedicated keyboard shortcuts, it doesn't do your dishes...
If you need a basic, wired keyboard and mouse at a great price (which is what 99% of users out there will want), this is a perfect choice. If you are looking for more, look elsewhere.
