This review is from: LIAN LI PC-7B plus II Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This is clearly the old PC-60 case with a new back panel that deletes the removable motherboard tray to allow clearance for a 120mm fan in place of the old 80mm. The front panel uses a 2 bay 3.5" cage rather than a 3 bay to allow a 120mm fan on the front. It still has the 4 external 5.25" bays to allow my 3 bay hot swap drive cage and an optical drive.
Cons: Not for all, but I drilled out the rivets on the removable 3.5" drive cage at the bottom, removed the useless speaker (don't they know about piezo speakers?) and rotated the cage 90 degrees and reattached with rivets to allow access to drives without interfering with the video card.
Other Thoughts: The old removable PC-60 mobo tray never did allow a tall cooler to be used without removing it before sliding the tray in or out. If this case were 1 miserable inch wider the motherboard tray could come back with cpu back access if the opening were reinforced (what I did for my PC-60) or a thicker aluminum used for the tray. Turn the bottom drive cage. Keep the other features. The mobo tray could be removed or inserted with a taller cooler in place. If these changes were done this would be the best case on the planet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I replaced an almost new set of stock pads and rotors with these. I wanted that extra stopping power and I got it. Sometimes expectations are met. Who woulda figured?
They're gorgeous and they really work!
Cons: None at this price!
Other Thoughts: Stopping better is the difference between a crash and a near miss. My wife drives this truck. When I saw what they are for this price I had no problem jumping at this and hoped I'd get better than the almost new brakes that kept dusting up my wheels. They stop with authority and don't squeal, squeak or dust. Much better than stock brakes. Win Win!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kensington K33978WW UH4000 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub
Pros: Small size, instantly recognized and just works as advertised. I expected something bigger and was pleasantly surprised how compact this thing was. Couldn't be simpler. No disc, no driver install. Just plug it in and you have 4 USB 3 ports (really 3 because you plugged it into a port ... duh!). Bet your laptop has one USB 3 same as mine. Problem solved!
Cons: Can't find a con at this price.
Other Thoughts: No change to normal operation with thumb drives. Still need to "stop" them before removal at the taskbar. I doubted because let's face it ... there's some useless junk out there. This is a no brainer and glad I got it.READ FULL REVIEW
