Tempered glass side panel
Cons: 5.25 in drive Bay is worthless
Overall Review: Really happy with this case for the price I paid. It has plenty of space to build in and looks very nice. I have some minor issues with it however. It definitely seems to be an older case that they put a new front panel on and fitted for the glass side panel. Because of the front panel there is no way to use the 5.25 in Bay, unless you use it without the front panel, and that just looks dumb. The space would have been better used for another 120mm fan mount.
The included fans are actually really good. They seem to push a good amount of air and stay fairly quiet. Mine had a small yet major assembly mistake. When they were screwing down one of the fans they caught the wires under the screw. This frayed one of the wires and grounded it to the case. I was thankful that I always remove the included fans first to find the best placement. Had to cut, splice, strip, solder and heatshrink to repair the wire. Fan still works fine. Could have been a fire hazard had I not noticed it and just plugged them in.
I understand mistakes happen in assembly, but I would recommend that anyone who buys this checks all the wires first.
All in all, I would still recommend this case.
Pros: Good quality
Plenty of bits
Durable handy case
Opening tools are very nice and strong
Overall Review: I have been looking for a set like this for some 15 years now. This replaces my hodge podge set of tools and puts them in a very nice, durable and organized case. The case is so well made it even has a nice locking mechanism to keep the bits from falling out. Highly recommend this to anyone who works on electronics.
Overall Review: The chair went together quit easily. I wasn't sure how sturdy it would be as the only thing holding the back on is 4 screws and being sandwiched between the armrests, but it seems quit sturdy. The comfort level is more than I was hoping for. It is an extremely comfortable chair, I have absolutely no regrets.
Pros: well, didn't really find to many.
Cons: The card runs ok, however, it's about the same "ok" as my old 9800pro. The clock speeds are twice as fast as my old card, but it sure doesn't show it. It just isn't for gaming. I gained a little performance in hl2, then I tested it with an older game, far cry. Ran worse on that game than the 9800 did. Soon I'll probably give in and build a new system.
Overall Review: After reading a little more it seems like the 2600pro might be a better choice for gaming. I'm going to give that one a shot. I guess I'll stick with sapphire, cheap but it should work, if not I'll just eat another shipping fee. :( New Egg Rocks.
