This review is from: rooCASE Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1in.: Multi-Angle Leather Case & Stylus
Pros: Provides additional bulk to a very slim tablet
Protects body of tablet against short drops and normal wear and tear
Appears to be well constructed
Cons: Would be nice to be able to swivel the orientation from landscape to portrait when folded into a stand.
A strap to keep the case folded open would have also been a plus.
Other Thoughts: The reason I gave this a one egg rating is for eBag's handling of my order. I ordered this and paid for two day shipping at the same time I ordered my tablet from newegg. Two days later I had the tablet in hand but eBags still hadn't even charged my account yet. It was 6 days until I got the case.
Upon opening the package, they sent me the wrong case! I really received the case that is 15 dollars cheaper that doesn't include the stylus. After looking at all the packaging, I noticed that the model number on the internal paper packaging was for the cheaper case but the model number on the external plastic packaging matched for the case I ordered.
With how excellent Newegg has always been for me, ordering a product from a partnered supplier has really been a disappointment and I will definately shy away from doing it in the future.
This review is from: SilverStone Fortress Series FT02B-W Black Aluminum / Steel Computer Case
Pros: - Beautiful case with excellent build quality and attention to detail. I've never paid this much for a case but I can say its well worth it. Some things you get what you pay for, this is one of them.
- If you use the built in speed switches for the 3 180mm fans, on low you'll be taking off the cover to make sure they're on, seriously they're that quiet. On high, you can hear them sure but it's pretty quiet, mostly blends in as background noise which is pretty impressive for 180mm.
- I've never been able to get that clean look keeping the wires hidden but there is tons of space behind the motherboard tray to hide wires behind. The only place you can see wires now is where they come up to connect to the different devices.
Cons: -Though the top panel is made with thick sturdy plastic, I feel like im gonna break the pins off everytime I go to pop it off to access the "back panel" connections.
-BFG1000EX PSU intake fan doesnt completely line up with the fresh air intake grill, about 1/3 of it is covered so no guarentees on that perfect alignment there.
-Its quiet sure but not as much as I was expecting from the reviews. I'm coming from a Panzerbox that has x2 200mm fans in it. I was hoping for it to be more quiet then it is (but its still quieter then the Panzerbox).
-I have a full 7.5 inch bluray/dvd burner drive and because of that length the top 2 5.25 bays can't be used because the drive hits the case where it angles down into the slot covers for external connections. On top of that I also run a pair of 6970s in CF and the connections on the drive are pinched in between the drive itself and the second card. If you have a 5.25 device that is 7.5 inches in length the last expansion slot is blocked
Other Thoughts: Even with the one egg off, I could easily recommend this case to anyone looking for a qualit case that cools well while also keeping very quiet at the same time.
I suggest to anyone thinking of getting this case to review their system setup and ensure that if they are going to have multiple GPUs running to make sure that their optical drive is 7 inches or less in length OR to get a set of 90 degree SATA data and power connectors so your not pinching wires into place.
As far as fitment is concerned, 6970s fit in this case with about 2 inches between the end of the card and the fan grills and a Corsair watercooler fits exceptionally well and even looks real nice in this case.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND using a modular PSU to keep it looking clean.
Case comes with adapter brackets to install 120x2 radiator with the 180mm fans.
PSU holds in just fine under the 4 mounting screws.
Pros: Rediculousl fast for its price. If your coming from a mechanical HDD your going to be blown away by the responsiveness that you get from having an OS installed on a SSD.
Cons: Tried installing a few games but didn't notice an appreciable difference in loading times. My guess is most of the load time with games has to deal with loading the resources from ram to vram or something of the sorts. Not really a con in the general sense, but dont expect it to improve your gaming experiance.
Other Thoughts: I stay fairly up to date with my computer systems and have never noticed such a huge jump in performance as I have going from a mechanical HDD to a SSD. This is worth every penny you pay.READ FULL REVIEW
