Logitech Wireless Combo MK345 with Full-Size Keyboard and Right-Handed Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Nice Workhorse combo kit 03/23/2017

This review is from: Logitech Wireless Combo MK345 with Full-Size Keyboard and Right-Handed Mouse

Pros: On the smaller side without being too small
Price
Texture on the mouse wheel
No extra multimedia shortcut keys. The basics are covered on the FN shift of the function keys. Volume/Mute Play/Pause Track up-down.
Normal keys - Big Backspace & Enter, Full sided inverted T arrow keys, Fullsided Ins/Del Home/End PageUp/Down keys located where they are supposed to be.

Cons: Nitpicking but I like a little more weight in my mice. This one has a single AA so it's pretty light

Other Thoughts: Been waiting for logitech to come up with a new combo. I have been using the MK320/520/710 for what seems like ages. They all have their good and bad points. I wanted a better mouse than the stock one on the 320/520. The 710 was a good set but it was expensive and the keyboard was kind of big and I've had issues with the letters wearing off the keys This set is the Goldie Locks model. Inexpensive but doesn't feel or look cheap (time will tell on the durability).
<edit>
After having several of these in action for awhile I'm dropping the rating down to a 3. Quality issues where the keyboard has died. These do NOT use the unity transmitter so you can't add another logitech keyboard and keep using the mouse without using up a second usb port.

NZXT S340 Matte Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Very Nice Case 12/23/2016

This review is from: NZXT S340 Matte Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Size - Big enough but not a huge monster like some "mid tower" cases these days.
Looks sharp- not typical a black monolith, enough color to look nice without being to flashy for a business.
Construction seemed every bit as nice as cases that I've paid a lot more for.
Price - There are $1xx.00+ cases out there that are nowhere near the quality of this case.
Fans were nice and quiet. OEM case fans are like a box of chocolates. These were nice and quiet.
Wiring management in this case is very nice.

Cons: The two SSD trays are a little hard to install the wiring. Unless you use a Molex-SATA power adapter there the power connector comes straight out, you really have to bend the wiring at 90 degrees.

Other Thoughts: The top fan area can handle a 140MM fan but they only give you a 120MM. Not that big a deal but it's an area that where it is very noticeable. I had a 140MM laying around so I swapped it. Couldn't cost much to put a 140 on it or just put the 120MM in the front where you can't see it.

SUPERMICRO CSE-732i-500B Black Mid-tower Server Chassis 500W power supply w/ PFC, 80 PLUS Bronze 2 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of space. Rotating Drive bay is a nice extra. Quiet. Not invisible quiet but you can put it near people without it being overly noticeable. For a business setting it's not overly flashy or shiny piano black. The flip down 'lock' over the expansion slot covers is handy, no tool needed.

Cons: Would liked a little bigger PSU but at this price point it's good enough.

Other Thoughts: It's a little deeper front to back that what normally passes as a "mid-tower" these days, so keep an eye on the dimensions if space is an issue for you. If you are building anything with a SuperMicro motherboard this is a no brainer. All the power/fan/front panel connectors are the right length and plug in natively. I built a E5 powered ESXi host with 4 SAS drives in about 20 minutes. Pair it with a bigger modular PSU and this case is going to work great for 99% of your builds.
