DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Adequate, though just barely...

Cons: One SEVERE flaw...

Other Thoughts: I'm torn between two case types. One, is the solid as a tank Antec cases of old. I love 'em because of their sturdiness and construction. The other is the Rosewill Challenger, Deepcool Tesseract lightweight cases that are much easier to move around. I like the fact that these lightweight cases can be flipped over easier for removing/replacing/rearranging connections, disconnecting and reconnecting hard drives, etc. The Tessearct falls into this catergory.

The severe flaw, however, is the expansion slot design. They're made of cut out steel and, yup, once you pop 'em out they won't fit back in. Not no way no how. That means that if you decide to remove your graphics card or some other device you're stuck with a gaping hole in the rear of your case.

Have never run into this before not with cases new or old, cheap or dear. This made my experience with this case somewhat disappointing.

Kaybles HDMI-S-15 15 ft. High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet and Gold Plated Connector in OEM Package M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems to work and haven't ruled out using it for other devices.

Cons: Expected better... I expected that thick, sturdy, shielded rubber feel but this feels more like thin, stiff, plastic sheathing. May be of lower quality than the one I got from the cable company; will have to check them side by side to confirm...

Other Thoughts: I had hoped to use my HDTV as a computer monitor via HDMI as the supplied VGA input lacks HDCP support. Am using an ATI 6850 card which offers native HDMI support and went with this cable directly to the HDMI out on the TV. I was much better off with dual link DVI-D cable via a small DVI female to HDMI end. Don't want to blame the product unnecessarily but thought that a straight HDMI to HDMI connection would offer the best video. I was wrong. Use of this cable got progressively worse and so I went back to my old connection after a week. Will keep it around as it may be useful for something else (other than a PC to HDTV connector).

CyberLink PowerDVD 13 Ultra

2 out of 5 eggs End of Life, Dave? 03/15/2014

This review is from: CyberLink PowerDVD 13 Ultra

Pros: These products are, in fact, nice while they last....

Cons: Reviewers should demand information about Cyberlink's "End of Life" policies, which will render their blu-ray software useless if you don't pay them again for an "upgrade" once they're designated "End of Life." The previous reviewer, Richard, is correct. I was burned this way with PowerDVD9 which stopped working in 2012.

Other Thoughts: If Cyberlink were to clearly announce when "End of Life" takes effect in the product specifications, then consumers might make a more informed decision about the actual usefulness and value of this software. But because they never will, your value to them as sheep to be marketed to may be greater than the value of the actual software is to you. I, for one, do not appreciate being hounded to pay money to update a product I've already legally purchased just so that it will continue to work. Imagine if your hardware had a secret "end of life" policy by the manufacturer that rendered it unworkable by a certain date - there'd be a tremendous uproar! To be fair, Cyberlink isn't the only company guilty of this deceptive practice, others do it as well. Unfortunately, that doesn't make it any less deceptive. I invested in a PC and software to do MY work, not somebody else's. I would advise those considering this purchase to demand and consider truthful and accurate information from the manufacturer on the life of this software before spending $100 on it.
