BitFenix Prodigy M Midnight Black Steel/ Plastic Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Would I do another build with it?...Yes 03/08/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy M Midnight Black Steel/ Plastic Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Enjoyed the quality of materials within the case and the attachments. In my opinion this was a great choice (if a bit pricey) for a Micro ATX build with not a lot of future plans for expansion. Another pro was that cable management was only needed for tidiness

The build just completed for this tower was:
*B75 Motherboard (1 x Sata 3 port, 5 x SATA 2)
*Intel Core i5 (3350P)
*HD 7750 Video Card
*500GB Mechanical HDD
*4 x 2GB DDR3 Memory

Cons: Most of the cons I would say were poor engineering choices made by the designers. As others mentioned the cables running from the main door to the motherboard are quirky, obnoxious, and not a good idea even if the outside is sleek and well done. As well most of the hard drive locations are awkward and bizarre, and if you use a larger video card you lose the optical. Great if only upgrades are planned or to stay as is, but terrible choice if future expansion is needed other than more storage drives.

Other Thoughts: The bottom legs, and the top "handles" are neat. The legs seem flimsy but they just have some movement to them after testing I was happy enough with them. The top handles I would not suggest using for lifting as with fully installed system I would worry about them breaking under dynamic loads (initial lift motion, etc).

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex Plus 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For the first 30 days, for the cost and the specs. I was seeing decent reads, and ok writes over a sata 2 connection.

Cons: 35 days after purchasing though the hard drive made a weird noise on boot, and no longer is recognized by the BIOS even with swapping cables, sata ports, and power supply connections.

Other Thoughts: Have a support ticket in with OCZ... hopefully this is replaced without to much hassle.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, it follows up Windows 7 with some great enhancements. If you can't get over the UI shame on you, its barely there once configured correctly and enables more than it hinders.

Cons: The people complaining about the UI.
