This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported
Pros: I've built a lot of PCs over the years and for an inexpensive case I'd choose this one over and over. Great cooling, great features, great access. The three fans are enough for most builds but you can another one over the CPU and it has upper rear grommets if you need to water cool. The front panel fan has an LED, if you're into that. The PSU is bottom mounted with plenty of clearance for larger supplies and MBs. It provides 5 external bays (3 - 5 1/4s & 2- 3 1/2s) great for optional SSD drive bays, USB 3.0 ports, fan controller, or Memory card readers. You can install 5 internal drives without needing any screws and there are 7 expansion tabs on the rear panel. This case is had to beat at this price point !!
Cons: No USB 3 ports.
Other Thoughts: The missing USB 3 ports are easy and inexpensive to add.
I just used this case to update my sons system to an I7, Z97 MB, Dual GTX 760 (4GB ea & SLI), 1 SSD, with 3 data drives(4TB ea), 1 kW PSU, cool master CPU water cooler and the only thing I had to buy that any equivalent case would have had was an adapter for the 3.5" bay to add USB 3 ports.
This review is from: DC9096-2 XRP 18V 2.4 Ah Ni-Cd Battery (2-Pack)
Pros: Awesome deal when on sale. Fits your tools, (some no names get stuck on OR WORSE FALL OFF). These charge fast, I have a dual fast charger and these batteries LOVE it. They last just as long as any others I have including the factory batteries.
Cons: NONE in almost a year of use.
Other Thoughts: Always let your newly charged battery cool before you use it and they will last forever . . .
I bought 4 no name batteries at the same time, they don't latch or release properly, they are also real light weight (lesser quality) I wish I'd just bought six of these !!!!!
Pros: Awesome monitors. Out of the box color slightly mismatched but tweaked rite in.
Running them wall mounted (yea VESA) side-by-side. They line up perfect and look GREAT.
Not a gamer so can’t help anybody there, but for doing documentation, graphic, CAD, and video they are fine for $200. Expected some graininess @ only 1080 but took the chance for the sale price and was REAL glad I did. No dead or stuck pixels on either monitor.
Cons: I decided to connect them DVI as HDMI causes a shadow box that wastes an inch of screen all-the-way-around. The band is very annoying (I paid for that real estate) besides I don’t see any other difference when watching videos not to mention two inches of a document is a huge loss @ 1080. Speakers are ok for youtube but I really recommend they NOT be your only ones . . .
And what is up with a VGA cable . . .
Other Thoughts: I’m waiting for the sale price to come around again so I can get another one to KVM switch my other two systems with.READ FULL REVIEW
