Worth Every Cent
Pros: Every connector you could ever need. VERY quiet fan. I'm running 2 HDD's, a dual core processor, PCI video card, a few case fans, and 2 DVD-R drives without any issue (as would be expected). One of my buddies referred me to Johnny Guru who gives a top-notch appraisal of this unit:
Cons: I didn't suck it up and buy a good power supply years ago.
Overall Review: I must have bought no less than 7 or 8 cheap power supplies in the last decade. Every time one went out, I rushed down to <insert generic computer parts store compatible with newegg's review policy> to buy the budget $30 everyday low price, everyday low quality power supply. This time when the original power supply that came with the case died on me, I thought I'd see what the expensive power supplies were all about. My conclusion: "they're worth it."
Pros: Reminded me why to not purchase things "for later use."
Cons: Absolutely awful. The metal on the mount is very sturdy but the hardware on the articulating arm SUCKS. Absolutely cheap as can be. Does not hold up well at all -- it slops around with a measly 20 lb monitor attached to it.... I had to drill new holes in the frame and mod it substantially (to a permanent fixed angle too) in order to get it to hold steady. Pathetic.
Overall Review: Unfortunately, I bought a pair of them ~4-5 months prior to when I actually intended to use them (moronic).
