Most Favorable Review

Great case

Fractal Design Define R3 Arctic White w/ USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case
Fractal Design Define R3 Arctic White w/ USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case

Pros: My friend and I purchased two of these cases, one white and one black. I ordered the white one and I have to say the paint on it is very nice quality. I really like that this box uses actual screws to keep things down no plastic clips or anything fancy. Plenty of space for everything I needed

Cons: None that I can think of

Most Critical Review

Hit or miss

SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter
SYBA SD-ADA50016 SATA II to IDE ATA133 Bi-directional Adapter

Pros: Idea is solid, seems to work with HDDs

Cons: Updating a friends case with new MB, chip, mem, wanted to keep the IDE DVD drive he had. So I was going from IDE dvd drive to SATA mb. Gave this a go and could not get a Sony DVD drive to be seen in the bios. Not going to really fault Syba for this as some devices are just old but it seems this works better with HDDs ( reading the reviews ) I would say it's a shot in the dark for optical drives. Some may work while others won't. For the cost, worth a shot.

Overall Review: I will hang onto this to test more, but tried two DVD drives with no luck. Yes all powers were connected and followed jumper recommendations, along with experimenting. No luck:( Time to have my buddy just buy a SATA DVD drive.

Decent Fan

ZALMAN SF3 120mm Shark's Fin Blade ELQ (EverLasting Quiet) Bearing Case Fan
ZALMAN SF3 120mm Shark's Fin Blade ELQ (EverLasting Quiet) Bearing Case Fan

Pros: I have the Fractal Design Define R3 Arctic White case and these add a nice look to that color scheme. Compared to my last build, these fans are whisper quiet. I thought the silicone pins worked great, and installation was easy.

Cons: Playing around with my air direction the fan to seemed to make more noise pushing air inside the case than push air out.

Great TV

Pioneer KURO 50" 1080p Plasma HDTV PDP-5020FD
Pioneer KURO 50" 1080p Plasma HDTV PDP-5020FD

Pros: Awesome picture, enough options to satisfy the average tech head. Compliments a blu ray player very nicely.

Cons: Pioneer is going out of the plasma business. This is probably the last year you will see the Kuro. Unless Panasonic decides to continue it since they have bought it out. Just google it.

Overall Review: Make sure you check your shipment. First one I had delivered had a huge crack on the front. Of course New Eggs customer service was on top of it.
