XCLIO Blackhawk Advanced Black Finish 0.8 mm SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Full Tower Extreme Cooling Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: After a year and a half of working with this case, it's time to start looking for a new one. Not that there's anything particularly bad about this one - it's done its job quite well. Incredible amount of space to work with, looks good, and the first time those fans start spinning just sounds cathartic. As for cooling, this case has no problems whatsoever. Mine kept everything under 30C, even under pretty heavy load.

Cons: Trouble is, I kept the fans in mine running at max speed with LED's on almost nonstop for eighteen months. So if you're dumb enough to do that, I suppose there's a con - you'll want to replace it after about a year or two. Again, not a flaw with the case, just the user!

Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BA-WOPSU Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Big case, good airflow. Positioning of fans is very good. Plenty of space for hard drives, 5.25" drives. Also, it looks really good.

Cons: As stated in other reviews, the faceplate should NOT be used as a handle when lifting this! One of the connector pins securing it to the rest of the case snapped. Additionally, the screw-less rails used to secure the 5.25" drives are a bit hard to get positioned correctly in place.

Other Thoughts: Building my sister a computer and one of her requirements was "it has to look pretty with all those flashy lights and stuff". Well, this case fits the bill quite well! Plus it gives her the cooling she'll need for all the other stuff I've stuck in this machine.

ADESSO EL-9805PB Blue 105 Normal Keys 18 Function Keys PS/2 Standard Illuminated media Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Owned this for six months now. Keys are not sticking. It's as bright as day one. I'm totally used to the keyboard layout now. Regular boards feel a bit weird at this point.

Cons: I have yet to find an electroluminescent mouse to go with it.

Other Thoughts: I'm the guy who's brother said "Your keyboard is AWESOME." It totally is. While the machine I built is my current trophy in terms of technical stuff, it just wouldn't be the same without this keyboard. The computer is beautiful - but this is the crown jewel in the entire computing setup I have. It brings the aesthetics together VERY nicely.
