Most Favorable Review

Excellent case

SIGMA ZEN ZEN-WDP diamond pink SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
SIGMA ZEN ZEN-WDP diamond pink SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -120mm rear fan and 80mm side fan. -Screwless mounting system for drives works surprisingly well. -Bottom HDD cage. -Front panel stuff. -Sturdy construction. Front panel door isn't cheap like most cases. -Color isn't obnoxious but also isn't dull.

Cons: -The expansion bracket holders are more gimmicky than anything else. You'll want to screw your cards down anyway, which the case thankfully provides holes for. -The mid-3.5 bays may require you to remove the other side panel so you can get to the drive mounting tabs on the other side. -Little cooling options other than the two included fans.

Overall Review: -I've honestly never heard of Sigma but was pleasantly surprised by this case.

Most Critical Review

Tries to wow you but not very good

BlueAnt V1x Bluetooth Headset w/ Voice Control & Noise Cancellation
BlueAnt V1x Bluetooth Headset w/ Voice Control & Noise Cancellation

Pros: -Pairs quickly, even has a voice instruct you over the earpiece if you don't know how. -Small, very comfortable even after extended wear

Cons: -Drops connection from phone constantly, even drops calls due to its random disconnection. -Inconsistent sound quality. Will sometimes get complaints from the other person about my voice quality while other times there will be no complaints, even when standing in the same place. -Relatively low battery life compared to other headsets I've used.

Overall Review: To be fair, I got this on the cheap during a sale so I got what I paid for. That saves it from being just one egg.

Nice and easy

Western Digital Elements 1.5TB Desktop External Hard Drive
Western Digital Elements 1.5TB Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: One-minutre-quick set-up out of the box. Painless. Great capacity for the price.

Cons: NTFS formatting has it at 1.36 GB, but that happens.

Overall Review: I've seen others with Elements externals and have been very happy. Not as fast as my eSATA enclosure that gave out, but gets the job done.

It hurts but works

TekNmotion TM-YW100A 3.5mm Connector Circumaural White Yapster Universal Gaming Headset
TekNmotion TM-YW100A 3.5mm Connector Circumaural White Yapster Universal Gaming Headset

Pros: Cheap. Offers decent directional sense for gaming. Mic not terrible.

Cons: They fit very tightly; not like a head in a vise, but pretty close. Have to take them off during gaming sessions during lulls in play. Definitely not for people who always want headphones on, such as myself.

Overall Review: My $20.00 Gamecom1's finally gave out and Logitech doesn't make 'em anymore. These are a far cry from their comfort and audio quality.

Good board

Foxconn A74ML-K AM3/AM2+ AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Foxconn A74ML-K AM3/AM2+ AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: No hiccups, no install problems

Cons: Included back plate could not fit into mobo due to the mobo rising too high from mounting screws. Probably the cases' fault but still an irritant.

Just fine

Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Typical value from Rosewill, solid construction.

Cons: Only got one mobo mounting screw. Really? Also couldn't mount my mobo properly because the mounting screws made the mobo rise too high so it wouldn't meet its back plate.

Overall Review: Watch that back fan. Ripped my hand right open.
