StarTech.com MDP2VGDVHD Mini DisplayPort Adapter - 3-in-1 - 1080p - Monitor Adapter - Mini DP to HDMI / VGA / DVI Adapter Hub

Pros: Does what I need it to do (only tested the DVI port). Works on my Mac mini at work.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Bought this to dual monitor on my work Mac mini. First time I plugged in my monitor it didn't work (plugged in the monitor cable to this adapter first, then plugged in the adapter to the computer). The screen just showed black with no dual monitoring. HOWEVER, it worked after plugging this adapter into the computer first, and THEN plugging the monitor cable into the adapter. After that the second monitor showed up immediately and all was good.

Easy setup. Has all the cables.

Pros: - comes with all the cables I needed for two hard drives, a cd drive, and my motherboard. Also has some extra cables for an eventual graphics card expansion. - modular, so I can set the extra cables aside without them taking up space in my case

Cons: - none so far

Overall Review: The price was right to replace my existing 750W power supply which died unexpectedly. It fit in the case with ease. Cables were long enough to reach all of my components with ease. For a modular PSU, it was the cheapest one I could find. I'm not pressing it too hard, as I don't have a high power graphics card, but so far it's working as expected.

Does the job in style!

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: - Blue Lighting for style - Multiple fans with varying speeds for cooling - Fans are quiet (unless set to max speeds) - Tray on top for holding my external hard drive while I work

Cons: - Unable to control lights - Cant change fan speeds without opening up the case

Overall Review: Ultimately, this case does its job well and does it in style. Played in the GW2 Beta in late April and everything stayed sufficiently well cooled with no issues. I would have liked the ability to control the fan speeds without having to open the case or relying on a motherboard. Also would like the ability to turn the lights off if I ever needed to. Other than that, the case is solid. Easy to get into if necessary and comes with USB 3.0 on the front (only really useful if your motherboard supports USB 3.0 though). I am very satisfied with this case.
