Pros: Quiet and fast for rotational drives. Cheap per GB compared to SSD.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have two of these in raid 0 (striped) for performance and they do just about as good as a single SSD drive. This is a cheaper alternative then a decent SSD drive if you stripe them. I'm waiting for Intel's SSD's to drop in price then ill probably pick up two of those to stripe as well. OS and a game or two on the SSD's, all other programs installed on these two and i have two green drives mirrored for data and backups.

Great case!

Pros: Love the case over-all, very nice clean look with just enough room inside. Not too big, not too small. It feels solid. Nice slide out Motherboard tray.

Cons: My only complaint is cable management. No easy ports to run/hide cables through behind motherboard. Hard to get your drive SATA cables over to the Mobo w/out running through that port hole/slot used for air intake. (depending on length of cables and mobo style) I still managed to run everything how i wanted, but its tighter then i would have liked. It's also a little heavy but that's to be expected with an all metal case. Still love it.

Overall Review: I ordered coolmaster sound dampening foam and cut it to fit in this case so it runs pretty quiet with 5 120mm case fans and watercooling. Also ordered the optional watercooling radiator bracket that fits in the top. What I've got inside: Black Lights and reactive watercooling tubing.

SAMSUNG 226BW 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI-D LCD Monitor

Pros: Good size, nice and bright. Colors are outstanding compaired to my old 19" LCD. Bought it at best buy as an open box buy. 287. 00 so got a good deal for a retail price. No major issues

Cons: Some back light bleeding, which is to be expected from LCD's, its less then my 19". Now that i have a good quality monitor i now can see how the rest of my system is lacking, going to upgrade my Video card and ram next.

Overall Review: My monitor did not have any identifying model letters. "S","A", or "C", but after a little research (and had to break it down and take it apart to look at the actual LCD panel model number LTM220M1-L01) i found out it was actually produced by samsung and not one of the bad brands.

Comments: Great little camera, i love everything about it. Except the continuous shooting option is definately not as fast as it claims. Manual gives speeds of 2.5 frames per second when camera is set to its lowest quality settings. I found this not be true, more like 1 frame every 1.5 seconds. Other then that, its perfect for my needs. Neweggs service was awesome as usual
