Pros: They were dirt cheap so about as good as expected. Don't use them too often so didn't want invest too much.
Cons: Tinny feeling, keys stick and are unresponsive sometimes. Some difficulties in software and configurations. For the price though, can't really go wrong if you don't use them extreme amounts or for complex gaming. I bought them for use with old school console emulators.
Pros: Great durable cable, great price for size. Good flexible neck and guards.
Pros: Average cable. Good flexible neck and guards for cap, good price.
Pros: Great for the price. Solid, has held up for years no problems. Such a significant jump from HDD
Cons: Not the fastest. For a bit extra $$ can have faster. The age old dilemma with PC components....'Well for $XX more....' Got to draw the line somewhere, I did, and am very happy.
Pros: Pretty standard cable... good neck on it, durable...
Pros: Durable, reliable, quiet, efficient cooling. Good price.
Pros: Upgraded to the 1000 finally. Much improved, more reliable. Never have issues so far. Lots of ports, great price! I like the colors.
Overall Review: Would be nice to have wireless included in it, which there are options out there. Always good to have the wireless option.
Pros: CHEAP! Reliable wireless, pretty good distance for the wireless. Use it for a home theatre system, to control the PC from afar with no wires. Good battery life.
Cons: Kind of tinny feeling. Has held up and is suitable for my needs.
Pros: Cheap, gold plated connectors, work great.
Pros: Cheap at the time for a decent CPU. I only use this with a simple home theatre build. Wanted something kind of mid level as this was at the time and AMD of course is always cheaper.
Cons: Only worthwhile for a very simple build. Pretty power hungry CPU as are most AMDs.
Pros: Cheap price, good cooling capabilities. Nice build attributes, locking systems, cable management, etc...
Cons: Rear fan failed nearly instantly. Top fan a bit laggy. Feels kind of tinny, not real durable. No USB 3.0 on front.
Overall Review: I like the more expensive cases for a more serious build. This one was for a simple home theatre build. But a little extra $$ can get you superior included cooling power, USB 3.0s on the front, some even have LED on/off switches which I love. Not a big fan of LED though...tacky. Nice at night but otherwise a waste. And when I'm sleeping I hate the LEDs blaring into my face.
Pros: Bought for my home theatre PC to just watch movie/tv. No gaming. Handles 1080p and anything else just fine. Couldn't beat the price, originally picked it up for like $30 or something. Doesn't draw much power.
Cons: Weak for gaming or much more demanding situations.
Overall Review: I prefer an actual GPU vs. onboard, even for just watching movies. More reliable and just like to have the extra breathing room.
Pros: Has held up and run my Home Theatre PC for about 2 years with no issues. Price was dirt cheap when I built it.
Cons: Not ideal for any more high end build. I like the new modular options now.
Overall Review: If you have a more power hungry high end machine, I'd jump up to the HX or AX series. Better efficiency and internals. Worth the extra $$ to safe some wear and tear on your system. The Cs and Cx series are more for simple builds, low strain, less demanding components.
Pros: Has been going strong for about 2 years. Good price, got it for cheap on a special deal on here.
Cons: Not the fastest but still significant improvement over HDD.
Pros: Great price, work flawlessly, have been going strong for years.
Pros: Works great, reliable and quick.
Overall Review: Why not spend $40 more for an all in one BDr/DVDr/CDr?
Pros: Has held up to serious abuse for years with no issues.
Cons: Outdated chipsets and socket type. Not really a con if it's what you're after though...
Pros: Use primarily to burn data disks. Has held up over the years with no issues
Cons: Burn time is a bit slow. Faster speeds now. Takes quite awhile to burn a full data disc.
Overall Review: Worth the money over a regular dvd/cd. Extra
Pros: Perfect size for me. Has held up pretty well. Great price at the time.
Cons: Collects dust and grit a bit worse because of the surface type. Not any worse than similar ones though I'd assume.
Pros: Have had these for years, with no issues. Cool colors, and reasonably priced.
Cons: There are cheaper options out there but not by much.
Overall Review: Personal opinion.... I hate the tall cooling fins. Typical install not a problem but if you fill 4 slots on your mobo and have a big aftermarket CPU heatsink, good luck fitting these in that last RAM slot.
Pros: I've had several of these. Back when I purchased them you couldn't beat it. They were about $70/ea. and They have run like champs since day 1 and continue to. Once I fill them up they either sit in my PC and run all day, or in external enclosures and run whenever I need to pull something off them.
Cons: None. Maybe, size. With capacities growing and growing, it's maybe considered small but I don't like to invest in huge 4TB drives. I feel the 1TBs are more reliable.
Pros: I own multiples of this product. Durable, slim and sleek, simple design. Stackable. I through all my old used up 1TB HDDs in these to use as externals to access programs, music, movies...etc. Price is great.
Cons: A bit slow but no more so than any other of similar specs.
Pros: Great keyboard, great shape and fit. Love the backlighting and customizable colors and Gkeys. Absolutely awesome for gaming. Great bang for the buck. There are fancier options out there but I <3 Logitech. Thing has held up for years, no issues whatsoever.
Overall Review: Just a thought.... would be cool if they made WASD a different color/texture and could edit certain key groupings to be different colors from the rest....
Pros: Good product, had one die on me after about a year, replaced and other works fine. Only docked stars due to 'Other thoughts' section
Cons: First one failed after nearly a year.
Overall Review: Why not spend an extra $40+/- and just get a blu-ray/dvd/cd combo. The times they are a changing. Might as well have all in one, save power consumption and space. I don't use a blu-ray to watch movies, just for burning and reading data between PCs.
Pros: Does it's job, Love the 90 degree angle. Makes for cleaner builds and better cable management.
