GIGABYTE gz-ph1a3 Black SGCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs You get exactly what you pay for 09/15/2011

This review is from: GIGABYTE gz-ph1a3 Black SGCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Price
SLIGHTLY smaller foot print. Probably better suited for a micro atx boards.
LEDs function as a night light...or flickering lamp

Cons: Little tight inside. I had some navigating some components.
LEDs burn retinas
I/O panel has razor sharp edges

Other Thoughts: This is a pretty utilitarian case, which I'm completely happy with. The one image led me to believe the side panel was hinged. Be sure not to drop yours like I did (no harm done). The LEDs are VERY bright, which I still don't understand. It needs a dimmer switch. I put electrical tape over them. I did manage to filet the tip of my finger on the I/O panel, but that's my fault, not the case's -- just a warning.

I'm a pretty happy camper with a new budget PC. :)

5 out of 5 eggs Good lil system for the price 08/25/2006

This review is from: AOpen XC Cube EX761 AMD Athlon 64/Sempron AMD Socket 754 SiS 761GX SiS Mirage 1 Barebone

Pros: Nice system, compact design, lightweight (relatively), nifty blue LED around the power button. Great everything-integrated mobo; it's got a hole for about any connection you can think of.

Cons: SOMETIMES it sounds like a hairdryer when it first starts up...I guess it depends on the mood its in, but it soon quiets down. Don't put any loose papers by the exhaust. ;)

Other Thoughts: I hesistate to call it a "con" because it's really not, but the socket 754 really limits your options as far as processor speed is concerned. If you never plan on having a system over 2.8Ghz-ish this is great buy. Otherwise you may want to step up to a more flexible socket type.
