Pros: It seems to be working well growing a tray of tomato seedlings.
Cons: Fans are loud. After only a few days of operation had one extra noisy fan fail to run. I have a box full of old computer fans so I replaced the failed fan myself.
Overall Review: The color of the light is rough to look at so I made a cardboard light box to avoid the pinkness while I have it indoors.
Pros: Picked up a couple of these to replace units We'd had for years. They work well and do tolerate the occasional trip through the washing machine and dryer.
Cons: Only good for about ten trips through the wash.
Pros: Inexpensive small storage for car audio
Cons: Write speed it rather low, but for car audio music storage its not a problem.
Pros: It worked to repair an old LG TV after the stock power supply failed.
Pros: Super quiet and solid. Easy to install hardware into.
This is the 4th Sonata case I've used but the first III version. Must say I prefer the new front styling over the previous II version.
Cons: Case has too may air leaks around the cd/dvd drives to make the air filter effective. I'm going to mod the front door to better seal this area to keep dust out the drives.
Overall Review: Wish this case came without the powersupply. I will not use a multi rail 12v supply.
Pros: Its been super stable, not one hang up. Like the heat sink type and layout. Running raid 1 just fine.
Installed Xp home for my Wife's new machine.
Bios recognized new Wolfdale E7300 processor.
Cons: Package does not come with a card slot com port adapter. MoBoad has a com port socket though, so I can get it going when I pick up an adapter. I need this to interface with a UPS.
Did not recognize my Gskill memory as 1066, had to set manually. Nothing usual about that though.
Overall Review: I have been buying Asus boards for many years. First thing to do is disable all the automatic overclocking features. Adjust them manually if you like. Get the latest drivers off the slow Asus web site, have your raid driver floppy ready for windows install.
