Good Drive

Sony Optiarc Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA 12X Half Height Tray Blu-ray Writer BD-5300S

Pros: -Solid construction -Works well

Cons: See other thoughts

Overall Review: This is an OEM product so do not expect to recieve any software, though it may or may not have some attached. You can expect to purchase your own Blueray software, which I was aware of, so don't act suprised when you get this and the drive is only in bubble wrap. I only say this because people will often times jump on OEM products because of the price, only to flame the rating because it is missing something.

Most Critical Review

I own this game

Arma 2: Reinforcements PC Game
Arma 2: Reinforcements PC Game

Pros: -Not load intensive on your GPU -Large Maps that allow you to travel almost anywhere...that is a HUGE plus in my opinion. -Not too hard to learn -Online play is ok. Love being able to operate so many different vehicles. It sort of reminds me of Joint Operations.

Cons: I do own this game although I did not purchase it through newegg. I do agree with the other review that the game is more of a simulation than FPS. -Too many aspects of the game seem to try and simulate actual combat. As a member of the armed forces, there are things that I am able to do that the character in the game doesnt seem to have the ability to do. I feel like the character in the game should be a little more "BA", if you get what I am saying.

Overall Review: I docked one star because in an effort to make the game so real, there were some things that seemed corny. I docked the other star because game play just is not all that great.

Great Case, Outstanding Price!

Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports
Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports

Pros: -Very solid construction -Cooler Master -Good stock airflow. I imagine this thing could be a wind tunnel with the right cable management and added fans. -Case panels designed in such a way that they accommodate lots of cables in the back, should you run your cables that way. -Lots of choices for motherboards, fits pretty much anything. One of the only cases that will take the G1 Assassin, which is the Mobo I have in it.

Cons: -Does not compare to the Silverstone Raven or TJ11, both of which I own, when it comes to cable management. I will say that for the price the case is excellent. Of course I am comparing this to the cost of the Silverstones. -Instruction booklet is terrible.

Overall Review: For the price, it is hard to beat this case. I gave it 5 stars because Cooler Master has provided a cost effective, versatile, quality built product.

Fantasic Drive

Pros: -Fast -Well built -Software is included -It's Asus

Cons: -None at this time

Overall Review: TH Tung, Ted Hsu, Wayne Hsieh, and MT Liao founded asus in 1989. Since then, they have built a very reputable company. They will only get better because they recieve many prototypes from chip designers before the rest of the competition.

Very pleased!

SilverStone RAVEN RV02B-EW Matte black reinforced plastic outer shell, 0.8mm Steel body ATX Full Tower Computer Case
SilverStone RAVEN RV02B-EW Matte black reinforced plastic outer shell, 0.8mm Steel body ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Lots of space -Cable management very easy -Good construction -20 C drop in temperature over previous setup -Airflow is amazing, the 90 turn on the motherboard does wonders for airflow

Cons: -Would not really call it a con because I am going to just buy a new cable, but, I could not place the top lid on using an adapter to connect an older cable to my TV... who really cares about that though? -Sitting here looking at the case, trying to think of an improvement comment... but... there are none at this time.

Overall Review: I purchased this case to house my Gigabyte G1 Assassin and needless to say, because of my inability to research, the darn thing wouldnt fit. No worrys though, I took my old build, threw it in my new case and I am not turning back. I am so impressed with this case that I am going to purchase another Silverstone case that will fit my mobo...the TJ11. Thank you Silverstone.
