Pros: Works, additional DC input.
Cons: Doesn't bring the boys to the yard.
Pros: Supports Eyefinity
Cons: Wasn't free
Won't be my friend
Uses generic drivers if you don't want the proprietary. Plug'n'play worked just fine.
Cons: I can't turn on my microwave with it.
Overall Review: Does what it says it does.
Pros: High amount of storage, 7200RPM, low price.
Cons: First was an RMA, the first thing I've had to send back to Newegg all year. Don't know if it's the way the hard drives are shipped, or if it was just the initial hard drive--hard to say.
Overall Review: When it works, does what it should. I caught it on sale at $55.
Pros: Decent fans, plenty of space for more. Lots of space for anything you could ever need. Convenient power panel on front, two esata ports. Fan controller works reasonably well.
Toolless installation is only for PCI cards and 5.25" bays, not 3.5" drives. That said, the rubber grommets on either side of the hard drives do keep it in pretty well on their own. I'm not sure if they're intended as a holding method or not, to be honest.
Makes for a pretty clean build, all in all.
Cons: Power LED is way too bright! Could practically light up a room, imo. I've got a quarter taped over it right now, and I'm looking around for an LED that is a little less obtrusive.
Doesn't include a mount for a second front fan, but I plan to jerryrig one with zip ties soon enough.
Front panels are a pain to remove, you have to remove the top bezel and then the front bezel, and you have to pop them out from there.
Overall Review: Fans look neat.
Someone else said the power panel looked like cheap plastic...Not really, it's glossy and looks decent enough. Seems to be holding up pretty well.
Two USB ports for charging.
No, seriously, it does have a pretty long battery life.
Can also charge while plugged into the wall
Cons: Wall plug doesn't fold into the device itself, although you can remove the wall-plug portion. Just a minor annoyance, really.
Overall Review: Does exactly what it says it does, and well.
Pros: Works, comes with all necessary screws.
Cons: The HDDs are right next to each other, so it's a bit bothersome to hook them up to the PSU.
Overall Review: No bells or whistles. Just works.
Pros: Wonderful speakers. Makes it a lot easier for me to blast my music :)
Has a little fob that lets you plug in your headset without having to reach to the back of your computer, and also lets you control speaker volume.
Cons: None so far. Maybe that it wasn't 5.1?
Overall Review: Looks great with all the other things on my desk.
