Pros: Actually made it into my shopping cart and all the way through checkout. Truly a Christmas miracle.
Cons: The 30 times I tried to get one of these cards. Had to buy a power supply I didn’t need in order to get my hands on one.
Overall Review: If you can get one, the I recommend it! It’s fast, quiet and, unlike my 1080 Ti, it actually works!
Pros: Great, huge cooling fans. Low-key lighting. Great interior spacing. Nice setup to keep cords under control.
Cons: Nonexistent manual. Vague-to-no identification of front panel connectors.
I had to read a system assembly blog (linked to by Corsair's website) to figure out the fan control config.
Overall Review: One of the best cases I have purchased over the years.
It's bigger than I expected, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It was really easy installing components and working my way in/around the case. I'm not a big LED fan but I liked the soft, white lighting I can see through the metal mesh in front. It's really quiet and seems to be doing an excellent job keeping the system and my Raedon HD 6950 cool (though I haven't tried to pushing it yet). Fans even at max speed are quiet and move a lot of air.
A great value.
Pros: Great performance. Good price. Nice addition of the Dirt 3 game.
Cons: I wish they'd enclosed a Display Port to DVI adapter with the card instead of making me pay an additional $27 for the privilege of running 3 DVI monitors with Eyefinity.
Overall Review: I've been running a 3-monitor Eyefinity setup through this and it's been rendering like a champ. I haven't tried to run it through anything too taxing yet but the Left 4 Dead 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 sessions have been a blast. Nice, clean calibration interface through The Catalyst Control Panel. Very nice.
Pros: Couldn't resist adding 3 of these to my system when they went on sale. Great brightness. Responsive. Monitor stand is simple but not as flimsy as many I've seen/used.
Cons: Although it is VESA compliant, I wish that the monitors had the ability to be set up in portrait view out of the box.
Overall Review: The bezel isn't to large for the Eyefinity setup I'm running. I've mostly used them for gaming and they work really well and I haven't even tried to calibrate them yet.
Pros: I had 3 DVI-based monitors and wanted to take advantage of my Raedon HD 6950's Eyefinity capability and this made it happen.
Overall Review: It's unfortunate that my Sapphire card didn't have one of these adapters already in it but that's a comment for the card's review.
Pros: Better constructed than the standard Rock Band drum kit I had. It's great to have the cymbals now.
Cons: Nearly everything is plastic, including the screw clips for the cymbals. I'm not sure the cymbals are going to hold up so well over time.
Overall Review: Be careful when you set up the cymbals and make sure the cords are secured and not touching any of the drum pads below. It took me a few bad drumming sessions to discover that one of the cymbal cables was tapping the drum pad below it every time I hit the cymbal.
Pros: Great size. Nice mounting hardware. The base is designed so you can run speaker wire out the bottom of the speakers, and straight into the wall.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: They do just what they're supposed to do. Good range. Good size. No complaints.
