Sentey Eagle Plus Extreme Division Tower Case - 2 x 120mm Blue LED Fan Cooler / HD Audio / 1 x USB 3.0 / Removable Aluminum HDD-SSD Tray / Screwless
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like the simplicity and the easy design for external water cooling. I also appreciate the grate on the bottom for reasons other PC builders will recognize. The price is unbeatable and the design is aesthetically pleasing without all the shiny bells and whistles.

Cons: The side door doesn't fit properly. After finally putting the machine together I fit the prongs into their rightful place and went to screw it in, I discovered a good two centimeter gap between the door with the hole for the screw and the actual case. nothing else was pushing it out or fitting incorrectly--it just happened to be built this exact way. I got it on another site but it shouldn't matter. QA is QA and Sentey dropped the ball on this. I can find alternatives to close the side panel but I shouldn't have to and it sends a very loud message of "what you pay for is what you get, see exhibit A."

I built this for a friend, but use a higher end Sentey for my own rig, and I love it. I suspect I just got a dud, but I see no evidence of warping, pressure damage, or bad soldering--it literally appears to just be the wrong size--off by two centimeters. Very irritating, very unnecessary. If I weren't in a hurry to get the machine to a client I'd have thrown a fit.

ARCTIC Breeze Pro USB-Powered 92mm Desktop Fan, Adjustable Fan Speed, 4-Port USB Hub - White
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Compact, quiet, low voltage.

Cons: I unplugged it and set it on my desk at work. Someone walked by and knocked it off the desk and it fell maybe three feet and landed on the carpet. The CARPET. Two of the blades immediately snapped. Device is unusable. Beware of crappily made miniature fans like this. They also tend to loosen the USB port.

ARCTIC Breeze Mobile USB-Powered 92mm Portable Fan, Portable Cooling Solution, Quiet Fan - White
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It spins, fast. I'm in a rather hot office so it's kind of nice to have -- the fact it's USB and so portable allows a variety of angles to blow air, all in all it's just a fan though. It is almost completely silent however and that should not be overlooked.

Cons: The neck is too short and often contradicts the physics of the blades. No LED (but for the price makes sense) and no control of the speed. It's like using the wind turbines from SimCity 2000 instead of hydro electric powerplants to win over the favor of the local populace. ;)

Other Thoughts: I've seen hundreds of these but I ordered it on a whim, it gets funny looks and so do I, but I just wish it were capable of radiating cooler (and more) air.
