6+ month review
Pros: Okay I had a chance to really use this case and see how it works since I purchased it. First off the people posting the reviews here need to read the manual of this case. The side doors ARE in fact removable if you find the small screws attached to the brackets holding the side windows on. Its a simple 3 minute task to remove the windows on each side. Second the PSU intake is via an air filter just not as great as the multiple filters included in the front of the case, which is also removable. Basically there are no flaws in this case since its 100% user friendly and it was built with customization in mind. For those of you water cooling, this is a great case since you can easily mount your radiator and run your tubing through the pre installed and pre drilled holes you will find on the back of the case and the mounting handles for where you can mount your radiator. Did I forget to say the TT support will be happy to answer any and I mean any questions you have? This is a great case
Cons: Only real con I see is the PWR LED connector which should have been included as a 2-pin and NOT a 3-pin since most new motherboards today use 2-pin. The included fans are super quiet but its my guess they suck in CFM rating since no specs on these were included in the manual.
Overall Review: I Cant wait to see what TT makes next in the Mozart series for an HTPC solution.
Pros: No one carries this anymore other than toshiba online or newegg... I checked everywhere on the net and locally and newegg is the only place that carries it..
Overall Review: Soon newegg will stop carrying this and if I need another replacement for my tablet R25 Ill have to order it directly from toshiba which is very expensive...
Wont get a constant 20x speed but very very close is good enough
Pros: Its a great dvd multi recorder drive and you may not actually see 20x ever, maybe on occasion but even though no media Im aware of goes to 20x speeds, this drive will give you as close to 20x as possible on 18/16x media which is something you cant get on any other drive here on new egg.
Cons: Not much to say other than the cache level, it could have been a bit higher than just 2mb. Ofcourse the price of this would increase as a result...
Overall Review: I like the color swap between black and the other cover included with this drive.
Pros: Just orderd and i compared specifications to all the other burners and I can say this is the best bang for the buck. Now just have to put it through a complete stress test to find out if it does what it says it will do. This is the only burner newegg has at the advertised 20x speed +R/-R
Cons: Only brand to offer the 20x speed here on this site. Why?.... and why only OEM.... rumors say OEM drives are hard to use with updated firmware releases.
Overall Review: not really nothing else to say
great psu but not good enough for an nv8800 gts/gtx
Pros: I had to call up the support line for this brand psu and they said if your 12v amp requirement is more than the 22amps offerd by this units 12v rails then you will need a better psu. Least they were honest.
Cons: Support isnt that great seeing as there is no toll free number and even if you call the one listed on their site it goes to a direct line to an office where some guy picks up and is just a regular FAQ type person or basic Tech/Sales guy who forwards calls to other Techs and will even ask to call you back, quote "if the manager is not there" Not the best type of support by A+ for effort.
Overall Review: Good PSU other than that but dont expect much out of this brand for a high end system which needs/requires a better amp rating on the 12v rails.
