Antec NEW SOLUTION SERIES VSK-3000 Black SGCC steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Solid case for it's price 05/21/2016

This review is from: Antec NEW SOLUTION SERIES VSK-3000 Black SGCC steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Does what I want it to.
Looks slick.
Holds SSD with no additional bracket.

Cons: Inadequate packaging - second one purchased arrived with a damaged front panel.
Black plastic gets dusty quick.

Other Thoughts: I will continue to recommend these for 'cheap case' for a while methinks :)

1 out of 5 eggs Ran fast, failed quickly. 01/11/2016

This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC240GMDA-RB

Pros: Worked as advertised.

Cons: Didn't fail gracefully with SMART.
Failed rather swiftly.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend future purchase from this brand without them really reaching out to consumers. The rest of these reviews should make this evident.

ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked fine for over a year.
Had specs I desired.
Heatsinks look pretty.

Cons: Failed.
In technology, in bulk, there are failures.
Now back in the day ASUS was known for it's support, if something went wrong they'd just send you a new one, and this is why so many trust their brand.

Now they outsource to a company called "freshbooks" and freshbooks doesn't provide support. They provide reasons why they won't support you.

They decided that my RMA was invalid because there was 'dust on the board' 'dust damage' which is silly bordering on absurd.
Dust isn't damage. It's dust. A small amount of dust isn't going to do anything, or if it is, I need to buy other brands because nothing else seems to have any trouble with it. I've worked on customer computers where it's less IT and more archaeology where they're just chuggin' along fine.

If you have dirt in your fans, it decreases cooling, and can cause damage. If you have dust on chips on the board, it does nothing.

Other Thoughts: I doubt anyone can get ALL of the dust off their board before sending it in.
I feel betrayed by this brand's support and image, and will probably no longer purchase ASUS due to their outsourced support company's negligence, automated spam, negative communication, and failure to do their job.

I can no longer recommend ASUS boards, due to this experience.
I will be alerting my customers, clients, and consulted businesses immediately, and this affects an upcoming build, so ASUS, you're losing money already.

Please consider honoring your warranties.
