Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great

Cons: One trigger isn't smooth

Other Thoughts: Bought this to play games on my computer in lieu of an XBox. It works and has great reception. The right trigger came with a scratchy/grinding sound but I'm sure I can pop it open and fix it.

One small note... This and the wired controller are kind of different. Some PC games will not detect the analog sticks and trigger buttons on the wireless model (I found this out while playing AC2-- the wired one works fine). There are workarounds to this if you do a quick Google search. Don't let that keep you from grabbing one though.

NZXT TEMPEST EVO Crafted Series TEVO-001BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great case with tons of room and great airflow.

Cons: Hard drive cage not really secured.
Decent sized space for wire management, but could use more.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for almost two years and I have to say I love it. It's massive, which is perfect for me since I stuck a ton of stuff in there. I replaced all the fans to make it completely quiet and took off all the lights. I have almost a dozen fans in there (6 case, 1 PSU, 1 CPU, 3 GPU), and I can barely hear it with the case doors closed. It was decently priced and is made of high quality material. And I'm really happy with my purchase.

The only complaint I have is that the hard drive cage is supported by a single screw, or none not at all. For the first three or four months, there was a buzzing in my case and I couldn't isolate it. It turns out it was the HDD cage vibrating while spinning up. I eventually figured it out, but had to replace two 2tb drives because the rattling caused the them to develop clicking. It shouldn't be a problem with ssds or smaller/lighter drives, but with 4x2tb drives per cage, the single screw gave out to the weight of the drives.
