Rosewill TU-155 Black 0.8mm SGCC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 400W(20+4 pin) Power Supply

Pros: Great case. Looks good. Power supply works great.

Cons: The blue LEDs are a little annoying. My room is completely blue when it is on at night. Needs longer cables.

Overall Review: I could fix the only con I have about the case but I am too lazy.

Everything good but documentation needs updated.

Foxconn nT-iBT18 NanoPC Barebone

Pros: Small and quiet. USB drive with drivers a big plus.

Cons: Documentation shows that there should be a PCI-E wireless network card, none in the box. USB 2.0 ports are a bit flaky prior to installing all drivers, I had to put the drivers (~1.6 GB) on a file share on my network so I could finish installing them.

Overall Review: After receiving and following the directions I came to a stopping point. In the assembly directions, it shows that there should be a PCI-E wireless network card. It wasn't a big deal for me for it not to have wireless but it concerned me that a part was missing. Installed Windows 7 with no major issues. Went to install all the drivers from previously noted network share and it turns out the wireless card is built into the motherboard. The assembly documentation should be updated to reflect this change.

Works now
