Good-looking, servicable case for the price. A few issues.
Pros: -Fans are large, good looking and quiet! Air circulation is excellent. -Power supply at bottom, and with a mesh filter under the case. Screw holes to install power supply up or down. -Fitting a full-size ATX motherboard was pretty easy for the case size. -USB 2.0 and 3.0 front ports. -Tool-less install of optical drives.
Cons: -Missing 1 ATX standoff -Can't get the other side of the case open -Old-style rear-facing internal drive bays with no 2.5" -Y U no have reset button!?
Overall Review: *Barely* fits the Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler. It's good for a cheap build but if you have more money to spend, step up to something else.
The Pixma Pixie likes to play with my sanity.
Pros: Great quality prints when it prints right. Individual cartridges for each ink color make replacements cheaper. Double-sided printing works well and I love the option of using a cassette tray to avoid the hassle of loading every time I have to print, and to keep paper protected from dust.
Cons: Sporadic problems with it not pulling up paper from the cassette tray, and it doesn't always play nice when plugged into my Asus router (will periodically print half of the first page, the other half on the next page, then move on as normal). Also seems to go through ink faster than my prior Pixma iP4300 printer, likely due to more frequent head cleaning.
Overall Review: This is my first disappointment in the Canon Pixma series of printers so far. I hope this is my last.
Great phone, overall.
Pros: -Fast. -Still has a couple of years of promised updates. -Not too much bloat from what I can see. -Nice to still have the SD option for storing photos and downloads. -The solid "glasstic" back still looks premium and less likely to break.
Cons: -Data transfer from old phone (S7 Edge) via WiFi direct was troublesome since it needed a lot of free space on the old device which was almost full, but once I switched to an OTG cable it was hassle-free. -Getting the SD card and SIM in the phone on opposite sides of cartridge requires some patience. -Even with the plastic back, the phone is still a bit slippery and needs a case to protect it. -No headphone jack, but most folks won't care anyways since BT headphones are mostly cheap and have good battery life. -Please let Bixby die, already. You missed the boat and there are already enough assistants out there.
Overall Review: I don't upgrade phones unless I have to, and it looks like I can get about 4 years out of this one.
Pros: - Quiet - Might be good if you want subtle lighting.
Cons: - They are not as bright as pictured. Barely throws out any light to anything else so it seems like it's meant for being visible without helping with overall case lighting. - Red ring is kinda flimsy and may pop out if not handled carefully
Overall Review: Would've hoped for a little more light out of it, but it will do.
Pretty good for a basic, low-cost case
Pros: - Manages to fit an ATX motherboard, optical drive, full size hard drives and backside cable management in a small-ish profile. - Filter for the topside and power supply airflow. - Didn't find sharp edges. - Sufficient options for fan placement.
Cons: - Pretty cramped inside, especially on the backside for cable routing. Might be an issue if you have sausage-fingers. - Replaceable slot covers instead of pop-outs would have been nice. - You can see the slot-holes for a normal metal side panel under the tempered glass. - Have to go to the backside for any drive removal.
Overall Review: It's great for the keeping the blackout look outside while still being able to see the innards.
