Pros: Lot of room, great fans for a while
Cons: fans clog with dust and fail and cannot be taken apart to clean
Other Thoughts: I really like this case and would have given it 5 stars if the two front fans (for the disk drives) hadn't clogged with dust and failed after about a year. Granted, the house is dusty and we have a cat, but we vacuum every week (including the front grill of the case). The front fans can no longer turn due to dust in the bearings and they cannot be disassembled without damage (it appears the blade assembly is glued in place. Some fans have a nut such that the blades can be removed). The fans appear to be 135 mm. I am ordering replacementsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Superb sound. Comfortable.
Cons: If hooked to an audio source - such as a pre-amp tape monitor out or PC line level out (regardless of the base or headphone volume and settings), it will shut off after 6 minutes without warning. This is a battery saving "feature" that cannot be defeated.
Other Thoughts: I was attempting to use these as wireless headphones. Google found others who had the exact same problem. First email to support went unanswered; second got a reply when I said I had 4 days before I would return them to NewEgg. First reply tech support asked if I had turned on the transmitter. Second email they said "This is why we don't recommend them as wireless headphones." I wish it had said that in the vendor literature; if it had, I wouldn't have bought them.
As usual, 5 eggs for NewEgg customer service.
Pros: Worked flawlessly for 21 months. Five stars until a couple days ago.
Cons: Froze after 21 months. Recycled, and it froze again after a few hours.
Other Thoughts: Hopefully I won't have to pay shipping for a replacement.
We will see what a Manufacturer Warranty of Parts 5 years limited and Labor 5 years limited is worth. I will follow up.
