Good power supply - slow as hell rebate

CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 (CMPSU-500CX) 500 W ATX12V v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 (CMPSU-500CX) 500 W ATX12V v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Good power supplies so far quite and stable.

Cons: I have bought three Corsair builders series power supplies and all the rebates took at least 12 weeks. Read the rebate form 10-12 weeks. It should say "minimum 12 weeks" even if you do the online pre-registration.

Rebate takes forever

OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500 W ATX12V / EPS12V Active PFC Power Supply
OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500 W ATX12V / EPS12V Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: The power supply seems to work fine.

Cons: Don't count on getting the rebate for 4-5 months.

Overall Review: Wish Newegg offered cheaper FedEx shipping.

Excellent card

Pros: So far it's been great. Can't hear the card over my other case fans and seems to be working well.

Overall Review: Two thumbs up

Enclosure is nice but the included USB is trash

Vantec NexStar CX 3.5" SATA to USB 2.0 & eSATA External Hard Drive Enclosure - Model NST-300SU-BK
Vantec NexStar CX 3.5" SATA to USB 2.0 & eSATA External Hard Drive Enclosure - Model NST-300SU-BK

Pros: The free esata cable w/ purchase is working awesome. Already sent 300GB of data across it.

Cons: The usb cable Vantec included with the enclosure is trash. My PC would not even recognize the drive. Replaced it with a Belkin usb cable and presto drive shows up no problem. Come on Vantec if you are going to include a cable at least make sure they work. A little quality control would be nice if you want people to continue to buy your stuff.

Overall Review: I can't tell you if the included Vantec esata cable works yet (most likely not) but I'll try it in the next week or so and update my review. Vantec should replace the defective usb cable at the very least to keep customers coming back.

Good drive

LG DVD±RW SuperMulti Drive 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH22NS50 Bulk

Pros: It works like a champ. I think its pretty quiet for a DVD-RW. Not as loud as some of the Lite On drives that I have had in the past.

Cons: None... so far... knock on wood

Cheap case

APEVIA Black / Silver SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-AL/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
APEVIA Black / Silver SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-AL/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Its cheap with the rebate but you really have to wait a LONG time for the rebate.

Cons: Its cheap. Not the best layout, sharp edges, plastic on parts that you would like to be metal (cheap) and wait for the rebate form (10-12 weeks for "processing"). The paint job is pretty poor and the metal is thin. Its a pain to swap drives once the motherboard is in.

Overall Review: I can't say anything about the power supply because at this price I'm not willing to risk my parts with that cheap of a PSU. Give it to one of you friends that wants their PC fixed but won't pay you anything to do the work. :)
