HP Color LaserJet CM2320nf CC436A MFC / All-In-One Up to 21 ppm 600 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Laser Printer

Pros: WORKS GREAT, JUST UPDATE THE FIRMWARE TO 2/9/09. REPLACE PAPER TRAY. MOST OF THEM BROKEN ON INNER RIGHT CORNER, DUE DO BAD HP PACKAGE DESIGN. NOTE TRAY COST WITH OVER NIGHT SHIP IS UNDER 40 BUCKS. WHEN THE WEIGHT OF THE PRINTER CRUSHES PACKING THE PRINTER WEIGHT SITS ON THE PAPER TRAY #2 BUSTING OFF A PIECE 3/4 INCH LONG.

Cons: ONE PRINTER WAS SHIPPED SO HARD THAT THE PAPER TRAY WENT UP AND CRACKED THE SINGLE SHEET FEED DOOR HINGE. THIS SINGLE SHEET DOOR DOES INCLUDE HINGE ASSEMBLE. AND IS ALSO UNDE 40 BUCKS WITH OVER NIGHT SHIPPING.

Overall Review: THE SINGLE SHEET BY-PASS DOOR IS A PAIN TO REPLACE, NOT AS EASY AS EARLY SAY 4 AND 4 PLUS BLACKAND WHITE MODELS. ALL AND ALL i LOVE THIS PRINTER, EVEN WITH ITS SHIPPING AND PACKING ISSUES. ITS LIKE ANY THING. I GET 10 TIMES THE WORK OUT OF IT FOR WHAT I PAID FOR IT. NOW THAT IS GOOD FOR HP. JUST FIX THE PACKING BOX PLEASE, OR INCLUDE A FREE 2ND REPLACEMENT PAPER TRAY WITH PRINTER.

These support all SATA drives

Pros: These frames work with the 1.5 tera byte seagates, just bigger than 750g did no exist when manual was writen.

Cons: none

Overall Review: 2 side mounting plates, I wish were connected (one piece), so when installed in inexpensive cases, the frame kits would be easier to install. But that is the cheap case fault not the frame kits. Li-lian cases work great with these frame kits.

OK if you have to have it

Pros: 60mm fan on angle cools ok and does not die "break" as quickly as 40mm fan.

Cons: easy to screw up for non techy person. rack mount options not idea.

Overall Review: pricey, but neweggs price great

this is not a pc60 any more, its a pc68

Pros: Still the Best case going. The pc68 is sexier looking than the pc60. Newegg gives us newer case for same price.

Cons: Too much plastic on front bezel! should of left well enough alone. The holes on pc60 bezel are 1/8+ and never get clogged with dust/dirt. but on pc68 the holes are < 1/16 inch dia and get plugged with dirt and filth 3times faster. The Box is Still Marked PC60 but the chassis on back by fan says pc68. When Lian-Li changed mother board tray back fan vent to smaller holes, "that black round grill", that also clogs up with dirt. They also centered fan so I can not cut out a hole for a 2nd exhaust fan in main board tray.

Overall Review: Lian-Li traded sexier for what was industrial. The power button works a little better like on the very orginal bezel from 8+ years ago. I am looking for orginal bezels for all my pc68 cases to make back into pc60 cases. I want a good inexpense industrial case which the orginal pc60 has been, over last 8 years . Please only make changes to increase air flow not restrict it. If I can still get true pc60 cases let me know how.

Hardrive Great, shipping not

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive (Perpendicular Recording) Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive (Perpendicular Recording) Bare Drive

Pros: The Seagate harddrives are wonderful, never loose data, I still backup to 2nd harddrive, but I run Diags and check drives before installiing and check on drives as they age. They replace critical hardrives every 2 or 3 years, just because.

Cons: NewEgg touched them!!! NewEgg Shipped me 30 drives in bottom of a box, in incomplete packing!!! then wants to charge me restock for their mistake!!! Maybe Newegg should check with manufacter on how to ship harddrives. I refuse to use a harddrive I find in bottom of a box!!! with 30 drives one would think a harddrive shipping container would of been used. Come on newegg get it right, you got great prices and great products.

Overall Review: 30 Wonderful harddrives were sent to an early grave due to NEWEGG's inability to ship/pack harddrives correctly. I would not get hardrives from newegg till they prove they can ship harddrives right on a consistant basis. This has been an ongoing issue. We will see if salesperson calls me back.

they made a great thing even better

Pros: Rev#2 the side rails are one stamping with brace between 2 rails, holds unit square & braces sata connector. 3 of these with 120mm fan in front works great. I have 1000s installed. They are the best. Raid 1, Raid 5, Raid 6, by them selfs. They just work. They now have LEDs

Cons: not free, rev#2 not here sooner. Rev #1 works just fine, just noe LED's. no SATA cable, SATA power adapter cable. but for the Price you can not beat it.

Overall Review: Just hot glue sata cable to frame kit if you are worried about cable falling off. I have not had this issue, because I cut my sata cables apart to verify design before use. Do not use cheap sata cables, ones with long black hood. cut 5 brands of sata cables apart, before you complain about connector. most right angle sata cables are cheap. The longer the black hood the more likely the shielding does not go to the end of cable!!! I like soldier cables, yet i have seen good crimp type sata cables
