Most Favorable Review

Nice case

Pros: Fairly spacious, can remove the extra dive cage if you have cables long enough for the bottom drive racks. Bottom drive racks are right in front of two drive cages which allows them to be cooled.

Cons: I used a Blue Orb II CPU cooler and it only allows a little space between it and the power supply. Had to remove the PS to plug in the extra 4-pin power adapter and one case fan.

Overall Review: The above-mentioned cooler centers right on the side heat-duct (yes, heat duct, not fan like the picture had me expect) which is absolutely perfect - heat blows directly out instead of into the main airflow, which helps with 90mm rear fan.

Pros: Everything in my previous review, but it does, in fact work with a PC.

Cons: If not placed in the ear properly it can get uncomfortable quickly.

Overall Review: I stated previously that I couldn't use it with my PC. In fact, it was a problem with my bluetooth software - it was out of date but Windows Update wasn't picking it up and my PC's manufacturer didn't send me an e-mail notification of the update despite having registered for such. Now that everything is updated, it works as well as you'd expect for a cellphone headset. The battery lasts longer than advertised while using Ventrilo, likely because I'm not constantly receiving the usual 'noise' that you'd get over a cell phone voice connection.

Cell Phone only

Pros: Inexpensive. Comfortable. Ear hook is on a swivel in case you need to change ears for any reason.

Cons: Not compatible in any way, shape, or form with a PC. Could not get headset functions to work with Win7 and this product is new enough that I can't find any help online.

Overall Review: I'm sure this would be great if I had purchased it just for a cell phone, but since I need it for both my cell and my PC, it's heading back for a refund. However, that's no good reason to drop its rating.
