Pros: Key travel is somewhere between a traditional keyboard and a laptop's shallow travel distance. Works without having to manually install drivers for Windows 7 32-bit. The media function keys even work!
Cons: A bit expensive, and there is too much extraneous plastic. The clear white trim just adds bulk. And for such a thin keyboard, there isn't a need for a palm rest.
Overall Review: Perhaps they should include a USB extension cord in case the keyboard USB cord is not long enough.
Pros: Cheap. Decent read/write speeds. Works for 1 week.
Cons: This is the 2nd drive of 2 which failed. The first drive failed after 1 week. It's S.M.A.R.T. showed read errors, so doing a sector analysis of the drive, there was over 1.5GB of defective sectors. I RMA'd the drive and the 2nd drive upon receipt, showed no bad sectors. After only 1 week, the computer would freeze randomly, task manager shows the drive at 100%. Doing a sector analysis of the 2nd drive showed over 30GB of defective sectors in the SSD.
Overall Review: Do not buy. This is 2/2 drives that went bad after only a week. Look at the other reviews around this time period.
Pros: Built this for a Sandy Bridge build. The 90 degree rotation of the motherboard is great for venting out heat from the top. It fit a 580 GTX and a 1200W PSU, so there is enough space. At least for me, the space between the motherboard try and the outer case plate provided for more than enough room for cables. The SSD tray was a nice touch and does not take away any bays. Optical drives fit flush against the front, and does not take away from the look of the case.
Cons: To replaced a 3.5" drive, you'll have to remove the motherboard. The PSU air intake is a little too small for a large PSU.
Overall Review: They should have rotated the HDD cage too, for ease of accessing those drives. The V-shaped LED light on the front of the case is a bit tacky, but that's just my taste.
