Most Favorable Review

Very nice case

Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW Black/Silver Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW Black/Silver Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Simple design without all of the obnoxious flashy objects on the front. Front panel being metal mesh allows good air from front to back. Front mounted 80mm fan blows on my HDD keeping them nice and cool. Plenty of space inside of the case for all of your accessories.

Cons: The 80mm fan plug is sort of hidden on the solid panel side, no biggie though, just make sure to look for it. Also newegg is great but they have this listed as ATX compatible when it is micro-ATX compatible also. I almost did not buy this case because I wasn't sure if my pre-fab micro-atx mobo would work. I searched some other websites and saw that it was micro-ATX compatible and purchased it.

Overall Review: Highly recommend for simple design, easy install, good price and plenty of space!!

Bad cable

VANTEC 10" Clear/Silver Floppy drive round cable, Booted, 2-Connector Model CBL-FDD10-CS*2
VANTEC 10" Clear/Silver Floppy drive round cable, Booted, 2-Connector Model CBL-FDD10-CS*2

Pros: Looks good and have always had good products from Vantec. All of my rounded cables are from this company.

Cons: Arrived DOA. Made my floppy act stupid. Hooked up an old ribbon and it worked fine, put this cable on and messed up city.

Overall Review: I always buy Vantec so was disappointed in this cable. I have had nothing but good products from Vantec and will continue to buy them. Newegg was great and shipped me a new one for free.

Pros: None

Cons: Ive built many computers but this is my first DOA motherboard. Had a second one shipped to me and that one died as well. Done with Asus motherboards.

Beware

Rosewill - Black & Silver, 0.8mm SGCC Steel Slim Micro ATX Computer Case with ATX12V Flex 300W Power Supply - R379-M
Rosewill - Black & Silver, 0.8mm SGCC Steel Slim Micro ATX Computer Case with ATX12V Flex 300W Power Supply - R379-M

Pros: Slim design

Cons: I bought 2 of these cases for my exam rooms and both 80mm case fans died within 6 months and had to be replaced. 1 of the power supplies died within 3 months and finding a replacement has been tough. I purchased a new micro atx power supply but the mounting holes are not the same as the originals. If you read the other negative posts they all had short lived power supplies.

Overall Review: Decent case but have spare parts ready.
