Rosewill Blackbone - Black Steel & Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Seems cheap at first but... 05/03/2010

This review is from: Rosewill Blackbone - Black Steel & Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: *Everything is black, including inside of case.
*Even include black screws and standoffs
*4 front USB, 1x eSata, standard front audio
*Space for front 120mm fan with foam to help keep dust out
*Space for rear 120mm fan
*Form over function looking
*Good cooling and noise after replacing fans
*Fits my large Cooler Master hyper 212 plus HSF

Cons: *Fans came with that broken/old fan rattling noise. Don't know if cause they were bad from factory or because newegg shipped the case in the product box instead of putting it in an additional case

*parts of the case is really flimsy (bottom, front USB panel) but this is just a x<$40 case. The Front USB panel really bothers me because it moves a lot when plugging and unplugging USB devices.

Other Thoughts: Seams cheap and quality case at first but it really isn't that great. If I had just spend another 10, I could've got the Antec 300 that usually goes on sale or another 20 would've got me the Antec Illusionist version which has quality fans included.

When it came, both my fans were broken. I had to spend $20 to buy two 120mm fans to replace the broken ones that it came with. One of the selling points for me was this case had two 120mm fans with it but having to spend more money to replace the fans made it cost more than a higher quality Antec case.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Fastest (at time of purchase) 7200rpm hard drive.
*Brought two to run RAID 0 and shortstroked. Performance is usually 240MB/s+ read, 200Mb/s write.
*3 year standard warranty
*quiet at first (read below)

Cons: *somewhat loud spinup (somewhat cool because a non-computer literate friend said it sounded like a computer turbo?? lol)
*started clicking after just one month even though SMART data shows drive is fine.

*already 2-8 relocated sectors after just one month on both drives :(

Other Thoughts: I've always used Seagate but their quality has really suffered in the past years + their customer service is horrible. WD's quality has really gone up and their CS is great.

Never had a Samsung hdd before but I expect them to be the same or better than WD. Got this drive because of high performance and great reviews. I really hope that these drives will last a long time and Samsung's warranty department will be nice if something happens.

Rosewill R363-M-BK - Black, Ultra High Gloss Finished Micro ATX Computer Case with 400W ATX 2.2 12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap
It was designed very well for a microATX case but the build quality just doesn't live up to its desgined.
Good cooling, especially adding another 80mm fan to the front of the case.
Good looking, used it for customers build

Cons: The Front bezel is not very durable, especially where the drive shields are. They flex very easily but don't return to their original spot, hence you'll probably get a pushed in look.

The drive shield buttons are not very well designed, pushing in button will flex the front bezel.

Flexing made made a very bad impression when I gave computer to customers.

Other Thoughts: I didn't use the included PSU, with the build quality of this case, I'm not going to trust the PSU.

Used to house a q8300, 8gb ram, gigabyte microATX, Artic Cooler, 1TB Western Digital Black, ATI 4850, OCZ 600w PSU, LG HD-DVD/Blu-ray/DVD Burner. Overall cooling hasn't been any issue.
