Pros: Good deep sound. The sub woofer is absolutely amazing, and it can handle getting pretty loud. The speakers come with nail holes in the back so that they can be mounted on a wall. Independent treble and bass level control nobs.
Cons: Now, all of these cons aren't that big of a deal. I'm just listing them so whoever is reading this knows more about the system. The system has two audio inputs, a 3.5mm jack and a left/right RCA jack. When you are playing something through both inputs, the 3.5mm input will play at full volume, while the RCA input plays at about a third of what the volume should be. If you aren't planning on setting these puppies on a desk, the cables to each speaker aren't extremely long. The power LED is extremely bright. I taped some thick paper over it to dull it.
Overall Review: I use these for my pc and my xbox 360... let me just say that explosions sound awesome! I definitely recommend these speakers, especially for their price. Good buy.
Pros: Very sleek looking. 1080p. Everything you would expect from a 23 inch monitor. The stand is extremely sturdy, which is nice since a lot of monitors have weak stands. Colors look good, can get pretty bright. The price is amazing, especially since Acer makes monitors on the better end of the spectrum.
Cons: As everyone else says, the settings navigation is horrible. Its the actually GUI system with the combination of the strange button layout that is difficult. I do appreciate that Acer hid the buttons though. A little bit of bleeding at the bottom when on a black screen, but only noticeable in a dark room.
Overall Review: I bought this monitor intending to eventually own another one to go along with my Acer GD235HZ, which is the 120 hz version, for a triple monitor set up. I wish it were 23.5 inches, so that the screen height would match up with my other monitor. Also, many of the options on this monitor's settings are unselectable, and I wasn't able to match the colors and brightness between the two models. I'm still really satisfied, it's just the little things that made it lose a star.
Pros: It's a four gig flash drive. No software installed on it. Has a red LED to indicate data transfer. Best part is that it's super cheap and works.
Cons: The rubber casing is not blue... it's more of a violet. And it slides off very easily. There's a hole on the rubber casing but it's really small. Also, if it slides off easily, does it do much use for holding your flash drive on to a key ring?
Overall Review: So what you are really paying for is a little silver flash drive with an optional but not very helpful casing. But hey, all I'm doing is using it for external storage for things I want to transfer to computers that don't belong to me, which it does well. Happy Newegging.
Pros: Think of all the adjectives an awesome monitor would have, and apply them to this one. But add orange to your colors.
Cons: My only complaint as of now is 120hz with HDMI is NOT compatible! I'm a college student, and this was going to be my monitor/my roomate's and my 120hz bluray tv. Well, if you want to go the HDMI bluray player route, only expect 60 hertz. It requires a DVI-D input for 120hz.
Overall Review: I am not using 3D vision so I have no comment about it.
Pros: This case is awesome. The hard drive rack can be rotated 90 degrees. There are rubber mounts for the hard drives and fans for antivibration. The front of the case comes with 5.25" bay covers on the inside, but can be removed so more air flows through the front of the case. Every thing installed easily and fits really tight. Wire management options are excellent. I was worried that the plastic would be cheap, but its very very sturdy and stays secured to the case nicely. Overall, its just a great case.
Cons: The packaging was a little disappointing. It came with foam to support the top and bottom of the case, but its the really cheap, flaky foam. Box was torn up from shipping, but thankfully everything was unharmed. I also wish they made it to where you could mount another 140mm in the front in three 5.25 bays, but that can be easily modded in order to do so.
Overall Review: I highly recommend this case. This case should be at least $160, so for the price, its unbelievable.
Pros: I've never scene a fan that looks like these, and if you are concerned about the white LED on the orange, it looks amazing. They glow more than they light up, so not obnoxiously bright at all. Pushes a good amount of air. Fan is sturdy and looks like it will have a good life span.
Cons: Wish it would push a little more air...
Overall Review: I've scene many reviews that say this fan makes a high pitched noise, and just wanted to let you know about this noise (or my personal experience with it). It does exist, but only if your ear is within two inches of the fan, so realistically, there isn't a high pitched noise. The fan is fairly quite.
Overall Review: I got what I paid for, so I'm satisfied. This is my first 140mm fan, so my review may not be the best. Also, I've scene many reviews that say this fan makes a high pitched noise, and just wanted to let you know about this noise (or my personal experience with it). It does exist, but only if your ear is within two inches of the fan, so realistically, there isn't a high pitched noise. The fan is very quite.
Pros: I use two of these fans on my Cooler Master Hyper 212+ and they work great. They seem to blow more air than may case fans (Xigmatek orange 120mm and 140mm). LEDs are not obnoxiously bright like most fans. Not noticeably loud.
Cons: You only get the cool laser effect the LEDs make if you are looking at the fan straight on. Other than that you don't see much of the LEDs shining on the fan.
Pros: Awesome cooler. I used it for my AM2+ processor and it keeps the thing super cool. Easy to install, and one of the few coolers I know of that can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
Cons: There was a thumb screw in the center of the mounting bracket that the instructions didn't go into detail on. I'm guessing it adjusts how tight it sits against the CPU.
Overall Review: If you are looking for an awesome looking cooler, just pick this thing up and two Cooler Master R4 120mm fans. It looks awesome and the fans are very nice! Also I highly recommend Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound, to get the best performance.
