Way Better than Before
Pros: -Adjustable lumbar support -Comfortable yet grippy -AWESOME ARMREST ADJUSTABILITY -Good recline -Padding for underside of knees is surprisingly good
Cons: -Needs to be broken in -Recline could use a little more resistance -Not sure if it's intentional, but left armrest goes one click higher than right armrest -Lumbar support could go a little higher
Overall Review: I think the pros and cons say enough, but I love this chair. It's an amazing upgrade from my beat-to-death 4-year-old $100 "gaming" chair with a flimsy backrest, cracked pleather, and almost no seat foam left. The assembly is really easy and self-explanatory; the instructions are very helpful if needed. They give you gloves so you don't mess up the chrome too. If you're willing to wait a few days for the chair to conform to you and loosen up a little, it's super comfy and the recline is great if you want to just relax. I've only had the chair for two weeks so I might come back in a few months with an update, but it's been amazing so far.
Great Case, Good Value, Not So Great Cable Management
Pros: -Comes with 3 LL120s -Pretty good looking -Lots of space for a graphics card (even with an AIO rad)
Cons: -Not able to top mount a rad with fans -Not a lot of room for cable management (even less with the HDD cage installed)
Overall Review: I bought this as a first time builder because I wanted a cool case and LL120 fans without having to fork out a ton of money. I got exactly what I was looking for and I love the case. My only issue with the case is the lack of cable management space in the back, especially since I also have the HDD cage installed. Even though I didn't do a great job at cable managing anyway, there is still a bulge on the back from where I have some of my cables slightly managed. If you're a pro at cable management and aren't running any 3.5" drives, I'd recommend this case in a heartbeat; if you're not, either try finding a case with some more room in the basement and the back or just do what I did and leave the bulge.
The Shuffle Works
Pros: -Great looking -Easily customizable with companion software -Performs like a dream -Was available in the Shuffle without a bundle -Not insanely enormous
Cons: -A little pricey -Could be argued that price/performance isn't great
Overall Review: I waited for about 5-6 months to buy a 3070, and obviously was not able to get one. The Shuffle popped up and said that I had won this one, so this is what I got and I couldn't be happier. I upgraded from a 1070 so the difference is night and day. Coming from a first-time PC builder (with no knowledge of overclocking) it's very easy to use and the companion software is relatively user-friendly. With a mild overclock it does pretty dang good too. With the state of the market right now, I have absolutely zero complaints about this card. If you can afford it and it's in the shuffle, GO FOR IT
Fast, Quiet Fan
Pros: -Moves a ton of air -Pretty quiet while doing so -Looks good for non-RGB -Easy setup, just plug the single fan controller cable in -Great quality for price
Cons: -No RGB but that's only a con for some
Overall Review: Great fan, it moves a ton of air and does it without screaming. Currently using it as a filler fan for an RGB fan I'm waiting to get and it works great. Nice color neutral look so it doesn't stand out if it's you're mismatching fans.
Cool Looking, It Works
Pros: -16GB handles everything I need -Beautiful RGB and no weird black strip at the top and bottom
Cons: -No dummy sticks yet for people who don't want to pay to fill the slots with actual RAM
Overall Review: It's great, it's RAM. Granted CL16 would be appreciated but CL18 works just fine for me since I'm not doing esports level gaming. Only downside for people who love RGB is that there's no dummy sticks available on the market to fill the remaining two slots, and that's the only downside.
It's Windows 10
Pros: It's Windows 10 alright. Everything you love about Microsoft Windows 10.
Cons: It's a CD so I hope you've got some place that sells USB CD readers nearby if you don't have an optical drive in your build.
Overall Review: It's Windows 10, nothing more needs to be said. Just beware that it's a CD install so have a disc reader ready.
