Pros: Having owned this case for over a year now, I figured I can post a review. This currently house a a intel setup, with 2 SSD's (was 4 at one point) 3 HDD, a ODD and a 1100w PSU, and an Antec H2O 620 cooler. It runs 24/7 and havn't had any issues with all the mess and clutter I have all around it. Will purchase another soon.
Pros: Top quality material. Great to use with the monitor. Front pocket for cable storage
Cons: wish I can get a few extra
Pros: The monitor work great. Out of box, installed drivers and up and running with in 5 minutes. Love that it auto detects the monitor orientation and adjusts but it could be a con if I am also moving it to adjust while setting up workstation. Great price compared to most other online stores and with the Free case. I bought another as a gift 2 weeks later.
I was able to get several other people at my work to purchase as well.
Cons: so far, none
Overall Review: I wish that it was driver free. Maybe that can be something build in with the next version of windows?
Pros: Fast and Cheap (got 3 sets on the BF sale 12GB of goodness) got my windows 7 memory index up to 7.7
Cons: unable to get them to work stable with ASUS X58 Sabertooth @1600
I understand the manual state that they are verified to work @1333 but there's gotta be some kind of work around
Pros: Monitor is hugh. 1600x1200 no problems on my Geforce 7800GTOC. Replaces my huge 19 in CRT that took up most of the desk space. Games play nicely.
Cons: Took 1 week from ship to receive. (what happened, keeps on getting left at ternmals and train delays) Got 1 freaking dead pixel that the 4 inchs from the left and 1.75 inchs from the bottom. Why oh why.. 1 single dead pixel.. can't do anything about it. geez.. what luck! :(
Overall Review: Over all I would have given this product a 5 star. But due to that lateness in shipping and the dead pixel exchange policy. I had to gave it 1 less. Anyone know how I can try to get this turned around?
Comments: For the Question Guy. SATA II works with SATA I drive as well. WD Raptor is currently in SATA I I believe and the main difference is that 3GBps vs 1.5GBps. Great board. Still wish that Intel would add a second PATA for some of us who have a warehouse full of PATA drive.
Comments: You can't ask for much more on this card. Bought it because I bought 1 for a friend's pc as upgrade to onboard, saw that it came with all the extras (he got the 128MB USB drive I did not) I benched it againest a 5600U, 5700LE and 5700 still got better scored then all three (with 3DMark05). Performs great in games and as TV. I think it's Nvidia software encoder so it does task your system a little bit. Remote is not the greatest but it works. Wireless KB and Mouse is better. FM Tuner could be better too. But for the price I'm not complaining.
