Pros: Does what it should, connects to my wireless network. Worth the 12.99 price now that I got it working (See below)
Cons: Extension cord defective.
Overall Review: I am using a Dlink DIR615 with WPA, mixed mode with MAC filtering. I couldn't get it to work and suspected various things until I took the adapter off the extension cord. Worked find plugged directly into the USB port. Tried my own USB extension, again worked fine. Tried the cord on 3 other systems (2 desktops, 1 laptop) with other USB devices to verify and yes, it was the cord.
Pros: Pretty handy. Small size, descent sound, easy to move songs onto it.
Cons: Takes some fiddling to get use to the UI. You will want a better pair of headphones.
Overall Review: For those of you having trouble making it work, here is a PDF manual:
It isn't great, but it is better than nothing.
Pros: Big case. Worked well for 7 months.
Cons: I have owned this case for 7 months. Side 360mm fan just broke. No one at ABS seems to be interested in sending me a new fan, or telling me how to get a new fan. I would be willing to buy it. NewEgg offered to RMA the case, but all I need is the fan, as it is fully used as a server for media files. I guess I will go elsewhere for my future case purchases.
Pros: Roomy. Big fans are pretty quiet. Easy to assemble system. Multiple size rear fan mounting points is a nice touch. Quick internal card brace is also a good design idea. Quick mounts are great. Exterior detail is very nice. I like the folding feet on the bottom.
Cons: Power control to motherboard was 3 pin with blank in the middle, most motherboards now are 2 pin. I had to pop the ground out and move it to make it work.
The main side panel doesn't fit really good and isn't on a rail, so putting it back on is a chore.
Power and control wiring for large side fan are too short. Add a foot or two to make it easier to have the door open and not have to disconnect the wires.
Overall Review: This is a great large case. I am using it for a near 24/7 server with a little bit of external bling and it fits the bill. Check through the cons I posted though for little lingering issues.
