bad power switch

Rosewill R5604-BK  0.8mm Japanese Cold Rolled Steel Dual 120mm Fans Screw-Less design ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Rosewill R5604-BK 0.8mm Japanese Cold Rolled Steel Dual 120mm Fans Screw-Less design ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: looks good. good airflow with the two 120mm fans. my system runs cool at 35c. I have a 3500 athlon with a gforce 6800 video card.

Cons: My case power on switch and reset swith did nothing at all. I did not feel like taking everything out and sending it back for a replacement so I install a basic power switch to the mother board that I bought at radio shack and my system boots up fine now. Instead of the oval black switch that comes with the case I now have a pretty round red one. My only other complaint is that the front mounted usb ports are too close together. Normal plugs will fit next to each other but a usb drive will not fit next to another plug.

Overall Review: poor quality control from the manufacturer gave this otherwise nice case a bad rating.

got a bad unit

Pros: low cost

Cons: I installed this unit 3 days ago and unfortunately my computer shuts down anywhere from 2 to 3 times a day. It does so suddenly just like it would if you where to pull the plug out of the wall. As another individual has already posted I am also only getting 11.71 volts. My other components are brand new and of good quality. I just ordered a new OCxxxxxxxxeam which cost a bit more but has great reviews.

Overall Review: I am glad others are happy with this unit but it there seems to be a few lemons popping up.
