Awesome fans

Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan
Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan

Pros: These fans are awesome. It's definitely worth it to pay a bit extra to get the Scythe fans... they move a lot of air and are very quiet (they move quite a bit more air than the much louder 140mm fans in my case).

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Great fans, never a problem.

Most Critical Review

Worked well while it worked

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST380815AS 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda 7200.10 ST380815AS 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It worked well for a while. Easy setup (not that it means much referring to a hard drive). Still covered under the 3 yr limited warranty.

Cons: It died on me after just about 1 year. There was really no warning at all, either. This was being used as a boot drive on my desktop with extremely low work loads. The only data stored on this drive was the operating system; it should have lasted longer.

Overall Review: I could understand if this was a high capacity drive being used for audio/video editing and/or constant ripping and data migration... but it was not. It really had very minimal use (the desktop isn't even on all that often). This is very disappointing for me; after years of patronage with Seagate (pretty much every other drive I have purchased), I have now ordered a Western Digital drive to replace this one... check the ratings there after about a year or so to see the comparison.

Great keyboard for the price

Pros: Good keyboard... solid, not too loud, comfortable

Cons: It's not a ridiculous gamer's board.

Overall Review: For the amount of money I have not a single complaint. Good buy.

Great case

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice case overall, good build quality, easy assembly/disassembly, lots of room (for all of my components, anyway), nicely vented for optimal airflow. Oh, and it looks pretty nice.

Cons: No real cons to list here.

Overall Review: Just make sure (as I'm sure you know from reading other reviews) that you make sure to get a power supply with ample cable lengths as the power supply resides on the bottom of this case.
