Pros: It is a somewhat functional paper weight.
Cons: This is the smallest "full sized case" I have ever seen. I have bought a couple of the cheap $20 DIY mid-sized cases before and they where pretty good for what they where. This case is the same as those mid size case with a two holes cut in the top for two 120mm fans and maybe an inch longer. For something that costs 4 times more I expect more then that. This case is way too small. There is just enough room for the PSU and a normal ATX MB. There is no clearance on the top between the MB and the top of the case. I tried to sick a 120x240 mm water cooler on top, but there was not enough room for it. I have built lots of PCs before with the water cooler before and this is the only "full sized case" with two 120mm fans on top that I could not sick the water cooler in it. I had to cut the bottom front plastic and the bottom of the 5 in drive bay to fit the water cooler on it. For the amount of work I put into this case I could have bought a mid size case and saved a bunch of cash.
Other Thoughts: If I knew how small this case is, I would have just spent the extra $20 and bought any other full size case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Makes a good paper weight.
Cons: The first SSD would not show up in any bois, so I sent it back to Newegg for a replacement. According to Newegg the SATA connector was cracked. When the second one came, it appeared to be in working order. So, I installed Windows 7 and everything was working fine. Then the next day the computer started crashing and I got S.M.A.R.T. errors form the drive. I tried DBANing the drive, but it did not help. I ended up sending that drive back for refund.
Other Thoughts: This was the first time I bought something made by Mushkin. One DOA is forgivable, but two in a row is unacceptable. I will not be ordering anything else made by Mushkin anytime soon.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The mouse has back and forward buttons that are well positioned.
Cons: The keyboard and mouse lose connection all the time. When I have them 2-3 feet away from the receiver it is bad, but when I go to my couch 6 feet away it’s a nightmare. Typing, gaming and not smashing the keyboard when it kills for the 5th time are near impossible. The connection is so bad it manages to screws up dragon age a game where the battle is fought 90% of the time in pause.
Other Thoughts: As soon as I get the cash for a new keyboard this one is going to find itself in a dark place waiting for the garbage truck.READ FULL REVIEW
