Antec Solution SLK1650B Black Steel ATX Mini Tower Computer Case 350W Power Supply
Antec Solution SLK1650B Black Steel ATX Mini Tower Computer Case 350W Power Supply

Pros: Looks nice, simple to use, works well.

Cons: * The power connector wasn't quite compatable with an ASRock 939 motherboard. After removing the 4-pin extension, I had to cut along one of the notches to make it fit (otherwise it would tear off one of the capacitors). * Older CD drives don't fit in some of the CD slots * The power LED jumper is 3-pin, and some motherboards require a 2-pin connector

Nice overall, but difficult to work with

Foxconn RS233 Black+Light Silver Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 150W Power Supply
Foxconn RS233 Black+Light Silver Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 150W Power Supply

Pros: Case looks great, built well.

Cons: If you want to buy this case, you have to find a motherboard that matches. Because the DVD drive sits on top of a good section of the motherboard, you can't get components that are too tall. I bought the GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3. With that motherboard, the DVD drive sits directly on top of the CPU slot and the memory. The stock CPU was way too tall. I had to get a Silverstone NT07-1156, and basically cut part of it, and it still barely fits. Make sure to get memory without the fancy heat cages. Also, the power cables and motherboard cables are on the opposite side that most motherboards expect, so they'll likely have to stretch across the entire computer.

If you like consistency, try something else

Pros: Looks pretty

Cons: The wireless connection disconnects at random times. You have to reset the router. Restarting the router every 15 minutes is VERY annoying. If you play games, which requires a constant online connection, this router is not for you.

Simply excellent

Comments: Works right out of the box, it made all my USB components (especially the scanner and printer) much much faster. My hardware is pretty old, but this card had no trouble working. Simply great!
