Antec Performance One Series P193 V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Nearly Perfect for Home Server 01/18/2012

This review is from: Antec Performance One Series P193 V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Well laid out, built well, nice baby-proof design

Cons: missing pc speaker

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent case. I purchased this to replace my existing case as it was not toddler-proof as this one is. With the front door covering the power and reset switches, this is an excellent case for my data server. Lots of room and very intelligently designed. Comes with 3 large fans + 1 HUGE fan built-in.
The only regret is that it is missing a PC speaker, which is useful for headless servers.

Pros: Very fast card
Many output options
Excellent price/performance ratio

Cons: Quality Control is poor
2 dead cards

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card to play Rift and enjoy some occasional gaming. The card lasted approximately 3 weeks then would no longer power up - dead. Newegg was excellent, as always, and RMA'd the card. The second card arrived shortly and was dead on arrival. I RMA'd the second and had my money refunded. I eventually just settled on an EVGA NVidia GTX 465 card, which cost a little more, but works fine.

I'm at the point in my life where I am too busy to fiddle with video cards for hours to save myself a $10-20, which I lost in the RMA shipping cost for the first item. The poor quality control of this product is abhorrent. I should have paid more attention to the negative feedback (14% !!) on prior to making my purchase.

In short: stay away from this product unless you enjoy rolling the dice. If all 14% of the negative complaints are DOA products, then you basically have a 1 in 7 chance the card you buy is going to be dead within a month.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased 3 of these units at once and installed into an unRaid. They have been running beautifully 24/ serving media for a month without a single problem.
I purchased them on sale and, though they are more expensive than several of the competitors, the newegg feedback indicates the quality of these drives far outweighs the delta cost increase.

Cons: a little expensive currently (just a penny under a hundred bucks)
