This review is from: Rosewill ARMOR-EVO - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX MBs - Six (6) Pre-Installed Fans: 2 x Front Red LED 120mm, 2 x Top 120mm, 1 x Side 230mm, 1 x Rear 120mm (Supports Up to 9)
Pros: This was my first build and I think the case helped make it easier. It seems solid and everything fits together nicely. It comes with a lot of fans, so that was one additional thing I didn't have to buy. They're quieter than I expected. It has a cable management area, which makes life easy. The temperatures of the components inside are good, so I guess it's all working well. It was a good choice at the price point it was at.
Cons: It's aesthetically challenged. It's under my desk, so I don't care. As I middle aged woman, I realize that these things are not exactly designed with me in mind. I'm not taking off any points for it, because you can see what it looks like in the picture and taste is subjective.
Other Thoughts: When I first took it out of the box, I thought it was awfully big and blocky, but now that it's sitting under my desk, I barely notice it. I bought it for practicality and that was the right choice.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: For a desktop - none.
Cons: Buggy. Crashes. Frustrating.
Other Thoughts: I have Windows 8 on an ultraportable laptop with a touch screen and think it's fine. This purchase, however, was for a desktop. I tried a free operating system just to determine that it wasn't the hardware. I tried reinstalling Windows 8. Finally, I just gave up and purchased Window 7, which is running like a charm. I feel like I just threw money out the window. I couldn't in good conscience recommend to anyone that they purchase Windows 8 for a desktop system.READ FULL REVIEW
