5 out of 5 eggs Great TV for the price. 03/27/2014

This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA

Pros: Nice TV. Didn't need a smart TV. I'm using it with a low voltage, core i3 mythbuntu system. Perfect for this application.

Cons: The remote leaves a bit to be desired. Some buttons are too close together, so it's easy to fat finger unless you are very careful. This won't matter to me for long, as I will need to get a different remote to control the mythbuntu system. Currently, I'm using a wireless keyboard for everything except power on/off. I did get a Flirc (Iremote interface device for my computer) to make the transition to a different remote of my choice.

Other Thoughts: Can't beat the price. Quality seems great. Time will tell, but at this time, I'm completely happy with this purchase.

4 out of 5 eggs May require an adapter cable (not included) for modern systems 03/27/2014

This review is from: SeaSonic SSR-360GP 360W ATX12V v2.31 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Efficient PS for a modern, low voltage HTPC system. ATX Form Factor

Cons: Could not connect 3 SATA devices in my CORSAIR R200 case. The 3 devices were: a SDD, a HDD and a Blu-Ray burner. Per case design, each of these items were mounted in a different area of the case, but only separated by a few inches. The burner up top, the SSD middle, and the HDD bottom and sideways. The two cables with two SATA connectors each would not reach to the 3 different areas. Luckily, I had a Molex to SATA power adapter cable from a previous CORSAIR power supply purchase. It was able to use it with the Molex supply line to power my 3rd device.

Other Thoughts: SeaSonic - how about including a Molex to SATA power adapter cable in the box like CORSAIR does with their units? Or, making the spacing between the connectors on the same power supply line a bit larger for modern case designs. New cases have changed a bit with the inclusion of SSDs. Since this unit will power a modern Haswell CPU, perhaps the cabling should be updated also....

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic Compact ATX Mid Tower Case

3 out of 5 eggs Only 1 complaint, but it is a big one. 03/27/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic Compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Great case except for one detail (see cons). Plenty of room for drives & fans. 4 internal slots for SSDs. 3 exterior accessible 5.25" slots. 4 internal sideways mounted 5.25" slots. Power supply can be mounted to pull intake air from the case interior or from outside case.

Cons: I really hate the toggle-type power switch on this case. It's been a month and I still can't get used to it. I've hit the wrong side of the toggle button numerous times. The button is the same color as the case (i.e. black), so in low light conditions, when I want to power on the box, I have to feel for the toggle. When the computer is on, the power light is so bright white, it easily lights up the wall 20 feet behind me. Not a good choice to use for a multi-purpose HTPC box.

Other Thoughts: Give me a round push style power button any day. The reset button should be at least 3 inches away from the power button and it should be a recessed smaller round push button. I don't even mind the pin style reset buttons.

Also wish it had slightly taller rubber leg buttons. There is not much room for the power supply air intake between the bottom of the case and the tabletop.

If this case didn't have the toggle-type power button and intense white power light, I would have given it 5 eggs.
