This review is from: Antec ASK4000E-U3 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Good affordable case with acceptable construction. (I got mine for $50). It is fairly thin sheet metal, but for the price it works. The rear fan is of good Antec quality and is quiet when connected to my mobo fan header. There is a basic, but welcomed, spot to support an SSD. Front port USB3 is nice ( no adapter to USB2.0 if you don't have the header)
Cons: Unit arrived damaged. Antec needs to ship these cases with thicker protective foam surrounding the case. This is cost cutting at its worst. The shipper possibly dropped the box as there is a slight soft spot on the box corner, but nothing on the box is visibly torn or crushed. This is Antec's fault for improperly packaging their product with poor quality foam and too little of it. The case back lower corner was seriously deformed. I had to pound it back just to take the side panel OFF. It looks terrible. My customer couldn't wait (twas a christmas gift) and accepted the computer with the damaged case. Disappointing. I can't recommend this case because of this issue, and I won't purchase another unless I know it will be protected reliably.
Other con is that the cables for the power, reset, LED, USB3, and audio are in an awkward place and there is really no way to wrap them in a clean way.
Oh, only 6 standoff screws provided! Luckily I had others, but others may not be so lucky. Hope this was just a mistake and not policy.
Other Thoughts: The front "brushed aluminum" bezel is actually just high quality plastic. Not a con, just something you should know. Beware long graphics cards. My MSI 660GT with oversized fans fit, but just barely.
4-egg case.... 1-egg packaging. Too too bad.
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDQUA-016G-A11A Flash Card
Pros: Fast and has been reliable for me.
Other Thoughts: I'm using this on a rooted HTC EVO 4G Smartphone. Using A2SD to automatically move apps to this SD Card and phone is much faster because of the speed compared to the stock SD card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: i-Work 77-765 6PC PLIERS SET
Cons: Tools are so cheap that the teeth on the pliers don't properly touch. Needle nose pliers weren't even straight. I suggest you avoid. There are other places to get cheap tools that aren't this, well... cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
