Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded 2 x USB 3.0
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Issue with 3.5 slots and rails 04/21/2015

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded 2 x USB 3.0

Pros: The case has a bottom mounted power supply. If you mount the supply the way that it was intended then it will draw cool air through the filter on the bottom and then expel the hot air out of the back. The case has cutouts so that the power cabling can be hidden behind the motherboard making for a neatly wired case. The case has plenty of room for mounting hard disks and other devices, but there are some issues as I have listed in the Cons section.

Cons: The second 2.5 inch mount can not be used without removing the motherboard. The disc mounts behind the motherboard and the only way to access the screws is to remove the motherboard. This makes the second 2.5 inch mount impractical to use.

The plastic brackets that are used to lock in the 3.5 inch drives will not work with the 2.5 to 3.5 adapters that come with most SSD drives. The only way that I could make them work was to drill out one screw hole on the bracket and then to drill a new hole through the plastic rail. Then the pen on the bracket will fit into the adapter and you can place a screw into the hole that you drilled into the rail to secure the rail to the 3.5 inch adapter. If you are not handy and have the tools then you have no choice but to use the 2.5 mounts or purchase a 2.5 to 3.5 full sized adapter such as Rosewill RXC200M instead of the small adapter that normally comes with the SSD drive.

Other Thoughts: I hope that someone from Antec is reviewing these comments because one additional hole in the plastic rails won't affect the functionality of the rail and will pretty much solve the issue with the smaller adapters.

The case has two holes in the top of the case towards the rear of the unit. I am assuming that the holes are designed to permit running tubes through the top of the case to a radiator for a water cooled arrangement. I do not see how they could be used on a closed loop water cooler so as far as I am concerned they are simply an eyesore in an otherwise nice case.

All in all, this is a very good case with great airflow and lots of room for all of your hardware. I am so fond of this case design that all I will use is the Antec 300 or the Antec 300 V2.

Logitech M185 910-003922 Gray 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse

Pros: This mouse is a perfect mouse. It is a wireless mouse that works quite well. The mouse is responsive and all that you would expect.

Cons: It is too small and is not comfortable to me. It is about an inch shorter than the Logitech M310 and it is not as high. I will continue to use my old M310 mouse.

Other Thoughts: The mouse works very well as everyone has come to expect from a logitech product. The color of the mouse is gray and black and looks very nice. If you have an extremely small hand then this may be the mouse for you. It would be ideal for a child's hand. Mine has ended up sitting in a drawer waiting for someone to ask me if I have an extra mouse.

ASUS VE278Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I previously reviewed this monitor as being 5 stars and I am still very satisfied with the monitor and it's overall operation. However, I have identified one deficiency that irritates me to no end about the monitor as I have spelled out in the cons section which has caused me to rethink the 5 stars and reduce the original review to 4 stars.

Cons: The power LED is next to impossible to see from the front of the monitor. You have to lean over to see if the monitor is turned on or off. At first I was thinking that the power switch was flaky because at times I would have to press the switch twice or more to turn on the monitor. What was really happening was that I had left the monitor on from my previous session so when I thought I was turning it on I was really turning it off. Then I would have to press it again to turn the monitor on. The power indicator needs to either be placed on the front of the monitor or have a design change so that it is visible from the front.

Other Thoughts: I am still very pleased with the monitor and for the price I paid I would certainly buy it again. As it is you either have to lean way over to see if it is on or off or you have to place a mirror on your desktop to see if the light is on. Perhaps the ASUS representatives will see this review and refer my comments to their design depart so this design flaw, in a otherwise perfect product, can be corrected.
