Pros: -Well packaged.
-They came in a time efficient matter.
-Convenient plastic dual battery storage case(times two).
-They perform as expected for Samsung 25R's(which is very good for higher amperage draws).
-They pass every visual inspection as real Samsung 25R's.
Cons: None thus-far.
Overall Review: To get 4 legit 25R's at this price was a great deal and I'd easily recommend this to anyone trying not to die from smoking cigarettes.
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: Poor Fan design
Overall Review: Does the job, and does it well. However, it has a bit of a scraping sound coming from the fan. It is at a very low volume, but still... can be a bit annoying. Won't be buying another PSU from Antec.
Performance @ 1080p
Overall Review: This GPU is exactly what I was hoping for for my target resolution of 1080p.
Sound deadening isn't preinstalled
Sound deadening isn't sufficient
Air flow is mediocre
Overall Review: There's absolutely nothing positive to say about this fan. See the "Cons" above. It's just simply a poorly designed fan with no upsides.
Easy to build in
Great cable management
Cons: Included fans aren't of the best quality
Rear fan mount is flimsy
Overall Review: It comes with it's flaws. i.e. a flimsy rear fan mount. Semi-Loud front fans that have a bit of a grind/tick noise going on at a lowish volume. But hard to knock at this price point. I can't imagine a better budget case.
Pros: As advertised
Overall Review: XMP applied without a hitch on the ASRock B450 Fatality
BIOS UI is outstanding
Cons: RGB Software is unusable
Overall Review: This MoBo is great. Especially for the price. But the RGB software is absolutely unusable. Be prepared to only use the simple lighting controls found in the BIOS if you purchase this board.
Cons: Cooler is horrible
Overall Review: Why even include this cooler? Just ship the CPU bare bones, drop the price accordingly, in the future. Then it'd be a 5 egg product.
Overall Review: Does what it is supposed to do.
Pros: Built Well
Overall Review: Don't buy overpriced Ethernet cables when this exists.
Pros: Structural build quality and presentation seemed good.
Cons: Arrived DOA. Clear lack of quality control. Returned to Newegg.
Pros: Price, final build outcome.
Cons: Build quality, lack of quality control.
Overall Review: I'm writing this review on the behalf of my significant other, this case was to be used in her first build. I supervised and helped when things got rough.
Now, if you're on a tight budget, it is a great case for the price. But here's my main issue with it: It was purchased for use in my girlfriends first build... THE ATX STANDOFF HOLES DO NOT LINE UP! The top two holes were of by a few millimeters. Now that is a huge letdown for me as it seemed like such a nice case for the price. Also seemed like it was a simple case for a first time builder like my girlfriend, absolutely not. She's a girl, and the fact that she couldn't get the motherboard to line up with the standoffs literally had her in tears from the frustration. So I gave it a go, and yes, the standoff holes were not really close at all. So I had to improvise to make it happen for her. Upon finally getting the motherboard to line up, I was then faced with the fact that the top left standoff hole was already STRIPPED! Before we ever even got a chance to put the standoff into it! In my opinion, this is unacceptable.
Secondly, it is very rattly. Makes a tinny noise with the cause having nothing to do with anything but a cheaply made case. The case feet have no rubber on them, so it slides everywhere easily... which is bad but we knew it before buying it, so no fault there. The side panels are rubbish. They do not line up with the top grooves properly, so it is a hassle to get them slid in while still locking in the top and bottom, which is required to prevent the case from having gaps and bulges.
Overall, just a terrible case to build in. But I will give it some credit, once it is built, it is a great case for the money. Still, I do not recommend this for novice builders.
