Pros: I purchased this case, as a cheap case for my son. When it arrived, it was well packed. After taking the case out of the box, you will notice how sturdy this case actually is. I was pleasantly surprised, since I was expecting a little more flimsy case for the price. You will also notice that the inside of the case is smooth and has very little to no unprotected sides. On that note however, there are no rubber grommets on any of the pass through holes inside the case. This was kind of a bummer for me, but it was a cheaper case, so I did not take of an egg. I just wanted to point this out to those looking at this case. I ordered the grey case, and when I pulled it out, it was a nice glossy grey color. It is a lighter grey, though it is still a dark grey, than what is shown in the given product picture. The window on the case door was a nice bonus to this beautiful case, as it will allow my son's blue lights, and added blue cathodes, to shine bright as he games at night. He is young, so apparently very bright lights that flash with sounds of his music or games, is apparently "the thing to have".
Now, about the fans:
I knew when I purchased this case that it only came with 2, 120 fans. So... if you want to add fans as I did, you can replace the front fans with 2 140's. There is space on the inside top of the case for another set of 140's. The back fan is made solely for a 120, which didn't bother me as my water cooler fan has a 120 also. I just wanted to give a !!!!HEADS UP!!!!, if you place a 140 fan on the top inside of the case, you will NOT be able to install a 5.25" device on the top slot. Since it only has 2 spots for add ins, I would suggest to either place a 120 in that spot or use the top spot for a 3.5" add in like a card reader. This is what I did, so it was not a problem for me. This was Not worth an egg loss, as I knew going into this build it only had 2 slots, and I only needed one for my dvd player and one for my card reader.
The PSU mounts on the bottom of the case, BUT if you do not have a full modular PSU, you will have to unscrew and move the, small 2 slot, HD mount over. It does have other holes closer to the front fan to screw it back into. This would actually be a benefit to those using an HDD. Not so much for the SSD users.
When I go to rebuild my daughters computer, if she doesn't still want a pink case, I will definitely be looking into buying another one of these. It went above and beyond my expectations for a cheap case. The case might be cheap in price, but it is equal to ones much more expensive. Remember, you will have to buy 3 more fans for this case if you are going to utilize all the fan slots it has to offer. For those of you out there looking for a nice looking case that you can show off your internal bling to your friends or family, or just really like to see a beautifully lit up case, this IS the one for you!!!!
Cons: The only con, I truly have for this case, is cable management. But, considering the price and quality of this case, it isn't enough of a con to take away an egg., as it can be remedied.
This case is NOT built for the OCD, clean cable management, people like myself. The space between the back of the motherboard, and the case cover, is very minute to say the least. I spent an hour doing my normal, a-n-a-l cable management routine, only to have to undo it all. Even with the cables tied to the back plate tightly, flat, and smooth, I could not get the case cover to sit perfectly flat. I could however get it closed, but the side cover poked out a bit. This might not bother some, but it was a HUGE annoyance for me, as I am one of those analretentive ocd perfectionist. All that being said, it Can Be Remedied, by using a fully modular PSU. I was using one of my older 1000w semi modular power supplies, which became a pain in my A-R-S-E. So, if you want to bypass my headaches, and have a quick and easy build, do yourself a favor and buy a full modular PSU. For those that do not really care if there are a couple of cable showing in the glass, then this case will be a dream build for you. Even if you have a semi modular PSU.
Overall Review: Knowing what I know now, I would definitely buy this case again. However, I would be smarter and use a full modular PSU to save me some grey hair. As stated before, those that do are not really bothered if some cables show, then this will not be a problem at all for you. Even if you build it with a semi modular PSU.
I do apologize for the long review, but I wanted to let everyone know what they are getting into.
Pros: They are orange, and work on everything I have used them on. They do sound decent for the price.
Cons: After about two weeks the padded ear pieces started to hurt my ears pretty bad. They are the smaller ones that fit on your ear and not over them. They are not worth full price but only worth the $30 I paid for them.
Overall Review: If you have a smaller head or like on the ear headset then these are for you.
Pros: I can not add anymore than what has already been written about this wonderful product. It has been great and has done what it was suppose to do.
Cons: Does not remote start my computer and make me coffee
Overall Review: If you are looking for a product like this, this one is a great and you should definitely consider it.
Pros: It glows and still scrolls
Cons: Within the first week the top trigger finger clicker started to stick pretty bad. After about 5 days of constant use it finally stop sticking constantly. Then not two weeks later the right side rubber piece falls off and then a couple days later the left side fell off. This mouse is one of the poorest built mouses I have ever used.
Overall Review: If you are planning to use this more than an hour or so a week, then STAY away. This mouse has ecrotizing fasciitis!!!! Not worth the money to return it, I will just chalk this one up to lessoned learned.
Pros: /* I have only used the knives for a little while, so please use my feedback accordingly */
I generally do not leave feedback for products,but since this product has very little feedback I felt like I should help others out in their decision.
The knives arrived way quicker than promised, which was a great surprise to me and also speaks well of the company.
They come packaged really well, and each knife was secured in a protected hard foam.
When opening the box the first thing you notice is how light these knives are, which helps a lot with hand fatigue.
The knives seem well crafted, and the ones I received came without any defects.
They were pretty sharp out of the box. I sharpened more for what I do, and they just needed a quick buffing for a very sharp edge. So far mine have kept their edges nicely.
One of the biggest bonuses to these knives are the grove they have for the finger closest to the blade. Unlike other knives I have used with a protective grove, these were indented deep enough and have a rounded tip on them so that it is almost impossible for your finger to slip out towards the blade.
3.Helping With Fatigue A+
4. Safety A+
5. Longevity ? I have not had these knives long enough to give an opinion on this, all though I will update my feedback accordingly.
6.These were worth way more than the price I paid. They have held up just as good as my more expensive blades.
7. In the end I have zero worry of my wife using these blades, and it will also make her life easier.
Cons: These refuse to cook and clean for me.
Overall Review: If you are looking for a great set of knives that are priced way below what they are truly worth, than these knives are for you.
I will update this feedback after a month of use, and then periodically afterwards.
Pros: Evga tech service has been great, they are a really good company to work with and are great to deal with. That is why this is getting 2 eggs. GO EVGA tech support.
Cons: This card has been nothing but trouble. I am personally on my second card that is being sent in for a RMA. This time I am just stepping up to the 295. The 285 overclocked edition was nothing but TROUBLE. I have had nothing but BSOD crashes in my games, I have had to underclock by around 22% to get it to work without crashes. STAY AWAY, go for the F T W version or the normal out the box version. Or just step up to the 295 and be done with it.
Overall Review: I can't speak high enough about the EVGA people that tech support that has been helping me. They have personally returned e-mails withing the hour, and have called me to help figure things out. They are A class and I will continue to buy from EVGA. Just had back luck with this card :(
Pros: Use to be a great headset until I switched to Vista 64 bit.
Cons: Mic troubles

It is currently not compatible with Vista 64-bit.
If there is anything else we can assist you with, please let us know.
Thank you for choosing Plantronics.
Customer (lionel ) 06/04/2009 08:56 AM
Yes it is, Vista Ultimate 64 bit
Response (Fermin M) 06/03/2009 11:14 PM
Is the Vista Ultimate 64-bit?
Customer (lionel ) 06/03/2009 07:58 PM
I have recently updated to windows vista ultimate and my headset mic doesn't work anymore. I have went in a turned mute off in control panel, but control panel does not have plantronics drivers installed and can't find them.
They were working just fine on vista 32, but since I upgraded it has totally went out.
Pros: I have these on the childrens computer and they work great. What more can you ask for, for 20 bucks?
Cons: People crying because they do not preform like 100$ speakers, you get what you pay for.
Overall Review: If you just want somthing for light listening or for your children these are the perfect set, and they are cheep to boot. If you want heavy bass and dynamic speakers come off the money and get a better set.
Pros: If you are looking for a nice quiet fan to cool your case these are NOT it, if you are looking for a fan that will move a ton of air and sounds like a hoover vacuum at full blast then this is your fan.
Cons: Loud if not on controller
Overall Review: I bought a Zalman fan control to go with four of these on my case and they are a dream. Make sure you have a controller or you will have to put your case in another room .
Cons: Pure trash, went out on me just after a year
Overall Review: Don't buy.
Pros: Love it, has worked well for me. Oh and paired with Tomato firmware it rocks
Cons: Wasn't free
Overall Review: TOMATO all the way.
Pros: Don't Blink or you will miss the shipment, WOW super fast shipping by new egg again. Product is great and as described :).
Cons: No adapter, no biggie but would have been nice.
Overall Review: SMALL, tiny, micro, wow
Pros: Does what I bought it to do, nothing more nothing less. I have had no problems as of yet with lights or controls. Newegg rocks as usual.
Cons: Flimsy, but not enough to warrant a -egg.
Pros: Great burner, does exactly what I bought it to do and at a great price and speed.
Comments: very quiet and a great fan.
Comments: This case runs my system very cold, it is awesome, beside the 120 in the back, you can install a 120 in the front, and 3 80's on the side, the metel is a little flimsy but I bought it for the airflow and got my money plus some out of it, and NEW EGG ROCKS
Comments: This MB is def. functioned packed, but it does have it's problems. First it took forever for it to even reconize my monitor during start up, for the first day I had to reboot just for my display to show, then after 5 days of running, the fan is going out, there are current bios flashes for it, but do your homework before you buy.but as always new egg rocks.
Comments: This thing SMOKES, nothing more to say, besides new egg rocks.
Comments: If you are a gammer then you got to have this, it is sleek, comfortable and fits realy well in the hand. and A++++++ to new egg for the fast shipping.
Comments: BIG,FAST,QUIET, nothing more to say.
Comments: This ps has every connector one could possibly want, plus it powers everything nicely. Oh btw, this ps is long, so if you have a fan on the top of your case, make sure the size of this will not interfear. besides that, great ps at a realy awesome deal.
Comments: This is a great and handy little storage device, it was the right price and just what my wife needed for her pics. Simple and to the point.
