This review is from: PLANTRONICS Voyager Legend Black Bluetooth Headset
Pros: I was happy to see such a good price on a Plantronics Legend. Unfortunately, it's not a Plantronics Legend.
Cons: Looks nice, but doesn't seem to be the real thing. Legend has a magnetic adapter -- this product does not. Legend has an LED above the on switch. This product's LED is below. This product pairs to bluetooth as "V8", leading me to believe that this is really the Sunyou V8 headset, not Plantronics.
Other Thoughts: Not cool, Newegg. Misrepresentation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX Vortex 3620mini Black Metal / ABS MicroATX Tower Computer Case
Pros: I had an Athlon II x2 245 sitting around and wanted to know how inexpensively I could put it to use. I picked up a Corsair 430W PS for $20 with rebate, a MSI microatx board with built in graphics for $45, 2Gb of RAM (only $13), and this case for $29 (on sale). About $100 of extra investment -- I added a used HD and CDROM and was good to go!
The case is pretty good. Relatively attractive. Not too flimsy, all the right screws. My PSU fits fine. Small, but enough room to work. Front panel jacks fit the bill. Fans are quiet enough (although I replaced the blue LED fan in front). I'm not going to be generating too much heat, but I have no worries there -- plenty of ventilation.
Cons: Front plastic panel is a little cheap and hard to work with. Not a big problem.
Other Thoughts: PSU + case = <$50. Good formula! Better deal than some combo case/PSU setups. Add a microATX board and it's also better than any barebones systems that I looked at.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: I was lucky to get this PSU at $20 (with rebate). At this price -- fan is very quiet, 80 plus efficiency, and looks amazing! Currently powering a very basic Athlon II x2 245 system with onboard graphics.
Cons: Only 3 molex connectors, but I've only needed three so far!
Other Thoughts: I have a 750 watt Corsair which I was very impressed with. This appears to have the same build quality, but with less power/connectors.READ FULL REVIEW
