Pros: Nice design and layout. Did not have any problems installing a motherboard, cpu, memory, dvd drive, two 500gb hard drives, and two 80mm case fans.
Cons: 250w psu only has two sata power connections. I had to buy a molex to sata adapter to power a second hard drive. Not a big deal though.
Overall Review: I did not have to modify or cut on this case in any way. The 250w PSU is running my setup just fine so far.
Zotac 880 GITX AM3 mobo
3.2 Ghz AMD Callisto Dual Core. (had to relocate cpu fan)
2 - G Skill 4gb ddr3 sticks
2 - 500gb hard drives
LG dvd drive
Pros: I like the black look of these memory sticks. I bought two for my Mini ITX build. They work fine with my Zotac Motherboard. They are not big and bulky.
Pros: Great features in such a small package. Been running for two weeks now with no problems.
Cons: None....Except for the shipping charges.
Overall Review: This is my first Mini ITX build and I must say that I am well pleased with it. Here is a list of everything I used and all bought from newegg.
APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
ZOTAC 880GITX-A-E AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
G.SKILL Value Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory
Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
LG CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH22NS70
Added another 500gb drive i had laying around.
I had to relocate the CPU fan because of the limited space. I also added two 80mm fans to the bottom of the case so she will have plenty of air flow.
Pros: Heavy duty construction. Feels and looks bulletproof. Video quality looks real good for the price I paid. Focus and zoom works well, but feels a little delicate while adjusting. I will be buying more.
Cons: The size. It is bigger than I thought it would be. Not ceiling mountable.
Overall Review: The Infared is really bright up close. Overall this is a great buy.
Pros: This system looks nice and compact, but that is all the pros I will give it. We ordered two of these systems.
Cons: Both DVRs were randomly restarting themselves several times a day and resetting the time and date. The camera quality was absolutely unacceptable to me. The picture looked horrible. I tried to adjust the color, saturation, and other settings and it made very little difference. I ran both systems for a week and that was enough for me. I returned both systems.
Overall Review: I ordered a comparable system here at Newegg made by Aposonic and it is working good so far.
Pros: Good memory for the price. I upgraded from 1 gig in my new laptop to this. Works fine so far although I have only tried it for two days now.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I installed this in my new Dell Inspiron 1420 with Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4Ghz Processor.
Pros: The price is great. Install was easy. Worked the first time with my CF card. Not tried any other cards yet, but I am sure they would work as well. Nice having a usb on the front of my case. I would of giving this product a 5 rating, but the housing seems bit on the flimsy side.
Cons: Flimsy housing, but for the price its nothing to be concerned with at all. I would buy another one if the need arises.
Overall Review: I have dealt with Newegg several times in the past and have had nothing but good success with them. Great prices and Fast shipping. Thanks for giving us a great place to shop.
