Awesome. Only have two problems. Im a manufacturing technician btw.
Pros: Awesome. Everything youtube channel gamers nexus said was pretty much spot on. General asthetics: The case just looks powerful and makes me excited. Quality of materials: great Pre-assembly: came all put together so you just take of all the many things you dont want. Features: definatly comes with more things than you want, probably for customizability. So youll just build it how you like. Definatly no need to put everything on. Mesh+fans: I was worried about how the mesh kinda took away from the rgb of the fans in youtube videos, but in person i dont even notice it. Probably has something to do with how we have 2 eyes and not one camera lense and can see through mesh better than a camera. Totally not something to worry about. Packaging: awesome. Came in a giant bag so you can take it out of the box easily. Only had top and bottom styrofoam pieces. Sat about 3 or 4 inches away from the cardboard all arround, just open air and thin milimeter foam. A puncture would be devistating.
Cons: 2 or 3 things. -All screws were over tightened. Seriously. The gpu support arm bent instead of hinged at the joint because it was to tight. And it should have had a washer too. -The screws on the glass were way to tight too. Also no washer. I literally broke a coin and it didnt budge. I had to go get a big *** flat head screwdriver, and, like always, the depth of the groove in the flat had was shallow as ***i and i lost the grip twice causing me to impact my glass two times on one side. Im a technician IRL and -I- had problems, meaning others should approach this portion of break down with caution... This is not good enginearing. Please dont make asthetic choises like this over functionality. This is a moderatly advanced case and people will modify their rig multiple times in this case. Anyways. Loosen the screw on the inside a little but not to much so it freespins. A cheap latch with an expencive screw. -motherboard stand off holes not threaded or they were painted over. I had to use my Electronics Screw Set to drive those things in. You WILL need a special screwdriver socket head for all of the screws, and one that you can torque with (like a wrinch) or thats really really long for the ones closest to the edge where you cant gets your hand in to turn. -rgb: just use ARGB. Doesnt have insteuctions for setting up ARGB. the controller could use some more settings. Verrry basic. Cant do secondary colors without argb motherboard. Also it uses the reset switch to control rgb so you 1. Sacrifice reset button, 2. The button is so tiny its really hard to press especially in the dark, arguable where rgb is most used and effective.
Overall Review: Overall awesome case with some super basic common since problems that failed to get caught caight at quality inspection. Would definatly buy again though.
Works most of the time. Has technically saved me time but is not perfect.
Pros: Superb casing. It's a brick. I don't recommend dropping it though. Detects inputs automatically (has problems though) and it skips ports that don't have things plugged in (convenient).
Cons: - It does not always have a proper image (low res), did not have sound on occasions. Troubleshot by restarting tv (didn't work), changed channels on the switch itself (didn't work), restarted my Xbox (did work but is by far the most annoying). Shouldn't have to go as far as unplugging wires as that would render this device useless, but so far I believe starting my tv FIRST then the Xbox or the ps4 next works best. HDMI cables support features like "hot plug" and they also run 5 volts dc on a couple of pins, so this device should not have problems connecting, but seeing that it does, there is some sort of problem with it. Maybe it doesn't throw all its poles. Maybe it doesn't work well with the power coming from the HDMI cable or amplify well enough. Maybe it doesn't utilize the Hot Plug as it should. I'm not breaking out the multimeter to find out. Either way, HDMI's have "hot plug" which means there is really no excuse for this problem unless it lies in the console itself. - The remote control doesn't work out of the box... - Fat power brick, hogs space on the power strip. Obviously multiple devices will be hooked up at one station so it would be nice if it didn't take up two on a strip.
Overall Review: I'm not the first review with the same problems.
