OtterBox Defender Case with Belt Clip for HTC One X Black Built-in Screen Protector 77-19686
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like the feel of the case, it protects my phone well (though I've only dropped this phone once).

Cons: The rubber is very soft, and within 3 months had deformed away from the corners of the hard plastic shell. This was just from the friction with my pocket, I had not removed the rubber since first assembling the case.

Within 6 months the tab covering the USB port began to tear. Within 8 months the USB port flap had ripped off and the flap for the headphone port was beginning to tear.

When I went to warranty this clearly defective product I was informed they no longer made it and the only available replacement was some purple ones they had in stock or blue Commuter cases (Approx $15 less value, no screen protector).

Other Thoughts: I spent the extra money for this case because of the warranty. Otterbox cannot properly fulfill their warranty, and the product was falling apart within a few months. I will not be doing business with this company in the future.

COUGAR 14CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1000RPM, 73.2CFM, 18dBA - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The fan is quiet and attractive. The blue lights radiate nicely from the fan blades, so the LEDs don't look like mini-spotlights. The frame feels solid and well made. There is rubber around the screw holes to help dampen vibrations, and it seems like it might actually do something.

Cons: The included mounting hardware must be a prank. The screws included were very soft and even though I was using the right size screwdriver I was not able to thread through the fan's plastic without stripping them.

The rubber pegs which supposedly are for tool-less installation and vibration absorption simply do not fit in the fan. I had two other people look at them and try. I tried pushing them through with a hex wrench. I tried pulling them with pliers. There simply is no way these fit in the screw holes.

Those are both minor complaints. Most of us have plenty of extra fan screws around. I just grabbed some extras I had and the fan installed fine.

Other Thoughts: I would probably purchase this product again. The cheap screws and ill-fitting tool-less pegs should not be a major hurdle for anyone who has parts lying around from previous PC builds.

Rosewill RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3 6 ft. Black High Speed HDMI Cable M-M

2 out of 5 eggs Typical Rosewill 11/19/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3 6 ft. Black High Speed HDMI Cable M-M

Pros: A decent length at a low price. Cables are thick and feel like they're decent quality (though this is not the case).

Cons: Typical Rosewill quality (or lack there of). Bought 3 of these. One didn't work straight out of the box, the other died the first time I unplugged it. I didn't yank it out by the cord or anything, I just gently removed it from my GPU, installed a new one, and when I plugged the HDMI in it was broken. Weird rainbow pixels scattered across the screen. It really freaked me out since I had just installed a new video card, but thankfully it turned out to just be the Rosewill cable.

Other Thoughts: Like everything Rosewill makes, you have to decide your self if the savings are worth the risk. For this particular product I would say you can find much better cables for only a fraction more.
