Poor Signal Strength4/22/2020 3:08:11 PM

Pros: Recognized quickly by Windows and Linux, no driver hassles.

Cons: Very poor signal strength, needs to be close to access point. Tried several wifi routers with similar results.

Overall Review: Would not buy again since it's unreliable at any distance at all. This might be due to the form factor and not the actual circuitry.

Decent Fan, But...3/11/2019 11:49:09 AM

Pros: Quiet, seems well made.

Cons: It's listed as 3/4 pin, but it's most definitely not 4-pin

Overall Review: Sometimes searching through hundreds of products is a tough task. Usually I search for 4-pin fans because I want PWM, but there are many listings which count Molex as 4-pin, which it technically is, but not as it pertains to actual connections to the fan. This is one of those listings. Don't make my mistake and accidentally think this is a PWM fan, it's not.

Advertised Specs Don't Match Reality3/16/2018 11:39:52 PM

Pros: Cheap, black inside, rolled edges, decent finish.

Cons: Had to drill out the 3.5" drive cage to fit a 300mm GPU, ATX motherboards have problems. Really most suitable as a Micro-ATX case with small GPU, don't let the "specs" fool you.

Overall Review: ATX boards with angled SATA connectors will not work, as there is a raised lip of metal all along the back edge that blocks access. Too small to be a true ATX case unless very careful selections are made with foreknowledge. The 375mm GPU length spec is a joke, there is about 240mm without drilling out rivets and removing parts of the case.

Inexpensive, Performs as Advertised, Cheap Fan2/28/2018 7:12:14 PM

Pros: - Inexpensive - Good Quality Innards, Mostly - Puts out its rated power

Cons: - Cheap Yate Loon fan died after one year

Overall Review: - If the price is right, get it, but only if you can keep an eye on the fan, and know how to replace it. It's the common 120mm size.

High Failure Rate6/3/2017 4:47:20 PM

Pros: Quiet, decent air flow, PWM fan.

Cons: Two out of four fans failed within hours of installation, they just stopped spinning. Perhaps the only reason all four did not fail is that I returned them all, the last two went back unused.

Overall Review: The fans I received had some kind of serious defect, they became stiff and hard to turn, almost as if someone forgot to add oil before they were finished. If this gets fixed, they will be a good fan for the money. As it stands, they can't be recommended.

Great Budget SSD8/5/2016 11:48:17 AM

Pros: It just works. I haven't benchmarked these drives, but really that's not the point. They are vastly faster, more rugged, and have less power draw than a laptop HDD, and therefore make a great upgrade for an older laptop. They are especially good for people who might be prone to treat their mobile devices roughly.

Cons: These have been absolutely trouble-free, which is more than I can say for some other big name SSDs.

Canon Print Head Defect7/18/2016 8:45:07 PM

Pros: It printed well while it worked.

Cons: This printer, not quite a year after purchase, out of the blue, displays the dreaded and infamous print head is not correct error. Google "Canon Print Head Class Action" for more details. Unfortunately, this printer is not included in the class action, but it should be, because it displays the exact same behavior as the machines described in the suit.

Overall Review: Avoid this printer unless you like working on broken junk.

Very Well Built2/8/2015 2:59:39 PM

Pros: Compact and very solidly built, the best Thin Mini ITX case I have used so far. Everything fit perfectly and the construction is heavy gauge, partially because of the optional monitor stand which would be pretty good in some situations.

Cons: Angled SATA cable exits in wrong direction. I haven't checked if that is because of the motherboard I used not following specifications, but it would be nice if the case came with two proprietary cables, one angled one way and one angled another. As it was, I had to put a piece of electrical tape in the inside of the chassis to keep the metal edge from digging at the wrong-facing connector during assembly. This is a half-egg deduction only because the rest of the case is so brilliant.

Overall Review: I am going to buy another one of these for use with a higher-end Q87mobo, and we'll see if the SATA connector angles the wrong way on that one. I'll update this if I can.

Trouble From The Start2/26/2014 9:52:59 AM

Pros: mSATA saves space and reduces cable clutter

Cons: Used as OS drive, failed to be recognized when waking from sleep from day one, even with proper "Never sleep" power settings applied and the latest firmware "MU03," finally failed after 58 days.

Overall Review: I don't know if I just got a bad one, or if the cheap price indicates some deeper quality issue. If Crucial makes good on their replacement warranty, I will probably sell the new replacement and switch to something different.

Thought it would be nice2/2/2013 8:04:58 PM

Pros: Compact design, backlit keyboard.

Cons: Trackball is a piece of junk! For what they get for this unit, a minimally useful trackball is not too much to ask. It's just too small and too slippery to actually work. Who wants to moisten their digit to get this thing to work? A larger, rubberized ball might make all the difference. We've moved this unit to a less used machine and added a wireless mouse to make it useable.

Overall Review: We haven't found a useful, quality HTPC keyboard yet, even after buying three different kinds. These segment of the the computer peripheral business is simply pathetic.

These CAN work with any case1/6/2013 8:45:09 AM

Pros: Very efficient cooling solution, can be very quiet if the mobo has fan speed controls.

Cons: Large, must check area above heat sinks to ensure no obstructions.

Overall Review: These heatsinks will work with any ATX or EATX case using Supermicro dual CPU mobos by using Supermicro part #SKT-0159L, which acts as an interface between the standard ATX mounting holes and the somewhat unusual 771 heatsink mounting system.

Functional, Poor Ergonomics7/12/2012 5:24:05 PM

Pros: All functions work as advertised with no fuss, all functionality was exposed by native Windows 7 drivers, so no installation routine should be necessary in most situations. Seems fairly solid and reliable for the price.

Cons: Whoever designed this keyboard must have never sat back in their couch or chair to watch a movie. To hold the keyboard comfortably, one must either angle their wrists inward at an awkward angle, or hold ones elbows out. The angles of the sides are exactly the opposite of what they ought to be for comfortable human operation. Also as mentioned, the lack of a button above the trackball forces two-handed operation at all times. This keyboard is best utilized at a desk or somewhere where it does not need to be held in the hands to operate.

Overall Review: Seems to be pretty reliable, though the trackball accuracy is rotten, this is common to this class of device.

No Problem Here8/26/2011 2:24:42 PM

Pros: Lots of cheap space.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I have to wonder if many of these "DOA out of box" reviews are due to improper installation procedures of this Advanced Format Drive. As a Windows 7 64-bit user, there was no issue for me, but other OS users may need to jumper and/or use WD software to prepare the drive for use.

Worked, for a while6/20/2011 9:01:49 PM

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Started failing to read Blu-Ray discs midway through playback at random intervals. Once this happens, the OS (Win7 64-bit) no longer sees the drive until the machine is rebooted. Updates to firmware, OS, and playback software had zero impact, I believe the drive is at fault.
