Pros: Includes 2 quiet 120MM fans. Power supply on bottom which provides better circulation. Nice HDD cage which makes it easy to install drives. Vents on the top to let heat escape. Easy to work on.
Cons: No speaker. Speakers are still necessary for BIOS alarms, not just during boot time but if fan fails, CPU overheats, etc. HDD cage is great for SATA drives, but IDE drives do NOT work in cage. Lips on the back of the cage prevent plugging in the cable and power plug.
Overall Review: I really like this case. I like the looks and functionality. It is very easy for TAGAN to add a speaker, they must cost pennies. I pulled one from an old case and installed myself. I had no way around the IDE drive problem. Fortunately, I only used an IDE for the install process and ended up with all SATA drives. If you plan on installing an IDE drive, you will have to get an adapter and put it in the 51/2" bay. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
3130CN Replacement Cart.
Pros: 1 out of 4 worked
Cons: I bought 3 colored cartridges for 3130CN. Magenta was orange. Yellow asked to restart printer. Cyan would not let printer print. I hope to get a refund. Original cart. works perfectly
Overall Review: I hope to find a re-manufactured cartridge for my 3130CN as the OEM are expensive.
Returned, but may have been good.
Pros: Good fast shipping, great price. No problem returning, good service. The external case did not work so I returned it and ordered a new one. The new one didn't work either. That's when I switched cables on the off chance that it was the cable. It was the cable. The USB works fine with a good cable. Now I am wondering if that was the problem with the first item.
Overall Review: The USB cases may have both been ok, but the cable on the second one was bad. I wonder if that was the problem with the first one.
