Pros: No need to grab a 980 with this guy. Does it all BF4/COD/HOTS/The Witcher all maxed out at 1080p. I have 2 SLI right now to support some DSR playing at 4k. The witcher does only get about 40 fps @ 4k but no biggie. The card idles at about 35-40 and tops at 70 degrees. I have had it for a long time and no issues!
Cons: None really other than I think of other than hoping to improve the cooling even better
Pros: -Loud and with nice bass
-Water resistant and dust resistant, it really is
-Comes with the wrist strap
-Got it when it was on sale for $59.99
-Battery life is fantastic, full day of playing either at the beach, camping, gym, I use it all around the house too.
Cons: -If you crank up the speaker too loud with the source the speaker can actually bounce and hit so hard it moves off desks, it dropped a couple times while I was in the shower
-Not packaged with a wall charger
-Since I did get it on sale, it is not worth the regular retail price
Overall Review: Overall this handy speaker is awesome for camping, outdoors, gym, sporting events, and the best for the beach since it is dust proof.
It is small enough to fit nicely in a backpack but loud enough to be a force. Overall awesome speaker to have
Pros: -Touchscreen worked, didnt have to open up the tablet
-i3 with 4gb and 128gb ssd
-Magnetic connection to the keyboard dock, reminds me of the surface pro
-Comes with the keyboard
-2 usb with micro hdmi
-Really diggin the SSD in this with the space/performance ratio.
-1080p display, also good for projecting or using another monitor
-Great use with microsoft office for productivity and other apps through the microsoft store
Cons: -Not for gaming or 3D intensive applications, but for basic use which is not really a con, but whatever
-Fixed angle on the keyboard stand. When the tablet is docked into the keyboard you cannot move it. It has a fixed angle
-Not really a con to this product, but I wished the Microsoft store was up to speed on the competition with the amount of apps offered. There are dragging there feet
Overall Review: I upgraded to this 2 in 1 because my old 2 in 1 is slow and extremely annoying. I used to have the Lenovo ideapad k3011w, but that one runs an atom processor and slow on some newer apps and web apps. I mostly use this one for my mobile computing computer/tablet because I have a gaming computer, but I enjoy sitting on the couch sometimes and using this one instead for web browsing, online shopping, etc. It does what I meant to use it for and then some. It can play some low res games, but nothing really more. Great for web based applications, web browsing, Microsoft office, other productivity applications, some games but none of the newer ones.
Pros: its copper design and 750i chipset to sli
Cons: extremely disapointed, i was reading reviews on the board and it seemed like a good buy, i have never bought asus boards or anything made by asus but most of my friends have items made by asus and they like their equipment ex. monitors, etc.. so i thought i would give them a try. i was wrong and way off. as soon as i popped everything in the board would not turn on, with everything hooked up my computer looks like its going to fire up and the cathodes blink for like half a second and nothing happens. i was so ready to game when i got this thing in the mail and after researching about it and checking cmos jumpers, clearing cmos, replacing battery, trying 1 dimm or 0 dimms, only 1 sata drive, no ide drives, it just would not turn on. the motherboard seems to be getting power but does not fire up cuz the green light on the board is on just doesnt want to turn on. i also made sure the front panel case connectors were properly placed like 20 times.
Overall Review: first asus board turns out to be bad so i am very disapointed, but not angry. i just dont understand why companies feel the need to pumped out inventory for clients without fully testing them before. i have bought 3 gigabytes 1xfx, 1 evga, 1 foxconn board from newegg and other websites and have never had 1 problem starting up the board and working. i was a little mad to wait longer to game. i am in the rma process and i dont think ill get another 1, just get me the refund so i can buy an xfx board
Pros: amazing, dropp e8600 down from 40c idle to 37 just the paste itself coming from using artic silver 5
Cons: make a bigger size i guess lol
Overall Review: decided to use with a vigor monsoon cooler and temps dropped 8c combined with this and cooler amazing and i think cleaner then artic silver 5
Pros: popped this sucker in my evga 750i immediately saw temp drops from 44c down to 34c idle while using the new artic mx2 compound coming from artic silver 5 and zalman 92mm, havent gotten a chance to truly test in windows and full load yet gonna be using on a new board which is coming in the mail tomorrow cant wait! amazing cooler for my e8600 wolfdale. using for gaming like cod2, bf bad company 2, doesnt dissapoint one bit, might be expensive but the best air cooler in my opinion and i have used the zalman 92mm copper, artic freezer, and aig all in one water cooler
Cons: HUGE, ......it barely fits in my antec 1200 case which i figured it would cuz i measure before i bought but i did not realize how close the fit was, after soon realizing this my case looks like it holds this big tank of a cooler and looks quite amazing inside with the blue led 120mm fans inside
Overall Review: oh and i love the dual 120's blue led fans their amazing!!!
easily will need a full tower to put this baby in, measure your case and make sure you have room before buying!!!
fits in an antec 1200 full tower
Pros: ONE OF THE BEST ATX FULL TOWERS i have ever touched, its cool and the color is black ;], jk, but seriously case cooled down my e8600 from my old x-navigator like 4 degrees cooler on avg inside the whole case, running SLI x2 evga geforce 9600 gt's and they are running cooler as well. Not just the cooling part of the case but the loops inside to control all of your cables, its amazing by just looping most of the cables on the reverse side can do for your case.
-love the fact most of the case fans built in have a speed controler already on the back including the top, rear, and front fans,
-one of the best cooled full tower cases by air on my opinion
-beast of the desktop
Cons: JUST REMEMBER I WAS TOO EXCITED TO GET THIS CASE FORGOT TO GET 12V ATX Extension for the power supply to reach the top right motherboard, the psu on its side for right now until i get get my extension in the mail, but remember to get one if you dont have modular psu cables, otherwise your cpu power might not reach!, just a reminder OTHERWISE NO CONS AT ALL
p.s. 1 con might be that it can be very heavy for some, most likely girls making their first build, this thing is a beast meaning on the heavy side,
Overall Review: amazing case, so excited to hop out of my old x-navigator full tower and hop into this new one !!!!!

cooling it with air right now, but guess what the case has loop holes for water cooling later on when i decide to switch to water cooling, AMAZING ;]
Pros: lol haha!, i wrote about 2 months ago that i bought one of these bad boys for my media storage, well back for another 1 and neither dissapoint, formatting ntfs on xp pro sp2 and it does take a while but is expected, superb drive for all your storage needs and back for another 1 because got more storage than i thought LOL, freakin amazing and installing the big apps and games on there.
excellent drives for anyone in need of storage, highly recommended and i bought when it was on sale

Cons: some people might still want to cool these bad boys a little more, the run at 30 degrees but its fine with me,
Overall Review: temps usually runnin around 30 in my apevia full tower xnavigator with 3 extra 120's installed in the window but still pretty cool in the hard drive cage
Pros: perfect does what its supposed to changes a sata power pin coming from the psu to a 4 pin molex for anything you need to connect to it, but works and thats what counts
Overall Review: a little pricey for all these case accessories =[
Pros: they give you quite in the pack. its not just 4.......great case screws and are easy to handle, thats why i liked them
Overall Review: wish they gave alot in the pack :D
Pros: grill for your 120mm fans :D, simple easy and effective
Cons: nothing fancy, simple
Overall Review: =]
Pros: works and adds a little flare to my atx full tower.....
Cons: with it was longer with more lights and a tad cheaper by maybe a buck
Overall Review: not going to mark off eggs for price but wish these case accessories were a little cheaper, duno what the bulk price from logisys is that newegg buys them and duno the margin for these bad boys but wish they were cheaper =]
Pros: works and does what its supposed to......protects against power surges and the length of the power cord is very good too, i think its at like 6"
Overall Review: good cord length and good protection for the price
Pros: amazing nd does what is supposed to moves like 56 cfm or something like that. i actually have 2 of these bad boys with 4 80mm for a total of 6 on my acrylic window. they move quite a bit of air and rank in the middle for quietness, im more of a cool person then my pc being quiet but i did grag some 120mm fan silencers for these
Cons: kind of noisy for the person who likes the quiet pc =/
Overall Review: depending on how you run the 120mm, i run the 120mm intaking air from the outside on my acrylic window so when you do that the fan rubs against the fiber glasses and rattling with the grill to make more noise then it should. if you outtake air from the side panel then you shouldnt have any problem with noise. that is why i got 120mm fan silencers :D, im a gamer and running decent video cards but they are overclocked so these 120mm hit right on them to keep them cool down to 45c
Pros: ssds are in early phase but coming along quite nicely, every shipment from ocz that newegg receives will have updated firmware already on them and no need to flash it. ocz new firmware updates will help read and writes and stuttering. great boot drive, im using windows xp 32bit pro because i havent bothered to grab win7 or vista. 32bit because i have multiplate gaming programs that only work with 32bit os. windows xp sp2 boots in 7 sec
Cons: not slc, but you get what you pay for so its all good, soon we will all be complaining about the price and wont believe how much we paid for mlc ssds but ssds are amazing :D
Overall Review: do your homework and read up on ocz forums, if your looking into ssd remember very still expensive but if your into building and modding pcs like me most likely it will not matter. the price per gig is a big issue but read up on the ocz forums and support to gather information. no cons because it works and it works quick, i cannot stress how much people need to read the ocz forums and support if they have any questions or concerns or help with there ssd drive if they have an ocz drive. they will help alot and give you all the info you need
Pros: works excellent, smooth, and makes for a excellent storage for all my media, i got about700gigs of mp3z, videos and movies so i needed this drive to organize them all, works excellent with the 32mb cache and quickly and cool, about 30c in my apevia full tower with 2 other drives right ontop of it inside the drive cage
Cons: is expected, took a while to format ntfs on windows xp 32bit pro but like i said is expected, just throwing it out there for people to remember
Overall Review: excellent buy for people with alot of media files and in need of super storage
Pros: does what its supposed to, give air slots in the back of your case. trying to move more air
Overall Review: prolly not worth 6.99, more like 2.99,
Pros: excellent light just what i wanted blue lighting from the case and its 2! brightest the case , at night for someone people can be extremely bright
Cons: can be extremely bright but the slot switch you can turn off
Overall Review: excellent for my rig, replace old single cathode
Pros: im pretty sure if your not familiar with arctic silver 5, then you havent been around computers a while. im also pretty sure which gamer/enthusiast doesnt use arctic silver 5
Cons: the only reason i see people not using it is because of the price, is a tad price because they knew everyone was using it. they jumped it up a couple bucks from last time i bought it, they had to jump on the band wagon to make some more money, no worries though happens.....
Overall Review: GREAT STUFF THOUGH IF YOU DO BUY IT
Pros: WOW! im an computer input freak with all the accessories and this mouse is so freakin comfortable for my notebook. Its perfect and feels soooo comfortable for your hands and includes the micro usb adapter especially for notebooks to conceal adapter. WORKS and batteries last a long time in this bad boy. Ive come to be logitech fan at mice/keyboards and they have all worked flawlessly. have this bad boy with my compaq notebook ontop of a pny gaming cloth pad right now, but any surface it does its job. decent software and drivers
Cons: price price price......logitech would sell tons of these, but the features it has, might not be cost benefit for logitech and couldnt gain any margin off these bad boys, im not sure though....
Overall Review: AWESOME!!!!!, im 100% gamer, enthusiast, and i can tell you i love these notebook mice from logitech
Pros: bought 2 of these bad boys to move air from under my oc'd 9600gt's and they do the job really well. when the comp is turned on and feel the back they move tons of air inside the case and works with my case aerodynamics
Cons: price, possibly
Overall Review: works, excellent buy
Pros: well worth the 2$ per each. i bought 4 of these bad boys to add to my atx full tower rig, and no regrets,
pushes tons of air for the aerodynamics of the case and works keeping my vid cards and my hdd to run cool
Overall Review: wish they came with plastic mounting brackets lol
Pros: im one of those odd people who usually buys the lower capacity hdd because i dont need much storage, but it works, this is for my media storage mp3z,vids,pics etc....and it works just fine, formatted ntfs and works like a charm. not very warm either, stays on the cool side around 30c, but my case is always cool @ around 28c, most peoples cases run hotter, WORKS!
Overall Review: works.....decent price.....wish 7200rpm 3.25 form drives were cheaper because ssd are up and rising, they need to go lower!, older technology
Pros: wow this is basically all that you need for most of the tools doing the basics....and more......everything is valid and all the tools are amazing, use them almost everyday
Cons: the phillips/screwdriver they give you wished they were individual, but not really con for everyone,
Overall Review: otherwise excellent buy anyone who hobbies messing around with their rigs
Pros: does what its supposed to, gave me an extra gig in my compaq notebok because i will also be swapping out hdd soon as well. works, and rallies notebook to 3gb
Overall Review: works
