Pros: Looks like a Borg Cube, which is the main reason I bought it, despite the price.
USB 3.0 on the front, have not tested them yet.
Non-windowed side also removes (see cons), case also has space to remove CPU bracket on the mobo while it is still installed. VERY useful to upgrade or interchange CPU coolers easily.
All the lights and fans and buttons work.
Plenty of space for large 120mm fans (5 total +1/2 for PSU). I also think I see other places to screw in fans, but I have not tried to screw any fans in to those holes.
Cons: Hard drives go in backwards, just FYI. Took me only about 10 mins to figure it out, that I had to snap the HDD brackets on backwards on the HDD to install them securely in the case. Luckily, the right side panel also removes, but the clearance for the wires could be more. Make sure your power and SATA cables have 90* angles on them so not to bend the wires like mine does, rubbing against the side of the case. :(
Only 1 fan comes with it.
Other Thoughts: Happy camper.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Where do I start?! USB charges while the computer is off
USB 3.0 interface on the mobo, 10 total USB ports on the rear, 2 of them are USB 3.0
6 upward facing SATA 3 ports
3 fan interfaces on the mobo for exhaust/intake fans and 1 for CPU
8+2 power phase, the MOSFET and SB heatsinks are HELD IN by SCREWS, not just tabbed in with plastic push-throughs (they should have done the same thing with the NB in my opinion, but I suppose this is done to easily replace the NB heatsink with aftermarket coolers?)
Clever positioning of the Front Panel interface (power button etc)
Beautiful board layout, nice black PCB. Everything is positioned perfectly. I will be buying more Gigabyte boards in the future, that for sure.
Cons: Uh... No witty comments from me :)
I guess they could have put an IDE on the board, but who uses IDE anymore other than my grandpa? :P
Other Thoughts: BIOS took some getting used to coming from Asus and Biostar, had issues with the memory posting at its rated spec (2133Mhz) but then, the max for the board says 2000Mhz. Noone's perfect, but this isn't a con, just some information for potential buyers :)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bigger than what it replaced; a 19 inch BenQ 4:3 flat screen.
Built in speakers, but not sure yet if they work or what they sound like, as I have aftermarket ones, and there was no 3.5mm aux/audio cable included.
4 USB prots on the back side of the monitor for my keyboard, mouse, phone charger, and whatever else I need at the time. All the buttons and USB ports work.
VGA and DVI
Cons: Packaging was a little sparse, 1 layer of bubble wrap around the critical (screen) part of the product, about 5 sq. ft of paper filler that did absolutely nothing to cushion a knowingly fragile product. -1 egg.
No HDMI port. No audio cable included.
Like everyone else said, the description is for a different monitor, the newer version of this one. But I will not deduct any eggs for this because 1. It's one heck of a deal at $89 with extended warranty, and 2. There is nothing wrong with the monitor itself. No dead pixels, no scratches that I can see anywhere on the screen or the housing.
Other Thoughts: Its actually perfect because Ive been putting off getting a new monitor, because I hate change. This monitor I can hardly tell I bought a widescreen monitor, it is a good upgrade from a 19 inch. All in all, very happy with this refurbished product.
Had it not been for the (lack of) packaging, this product would have 5 eggs hands down.
