Pros: Perfect size for what I need. Two higher-end PCs, three monitors, one television and a satellite receiver will (should) run through my normal outages. We get a lot of 1-5 minute outages over the summer months and this will do the job.
Cons: So far, after owning this for one day, the fan died. It started out whining, then wobbling, then stopping & starting. When I tested the battery by unplugging it from the wall, the fan spun up and I couldn't hear myself think. I'll have to see how the replacement works but I suspect if the fan works, the unit may be in good shape.
Overall Review: Had to RMA this after one day. Also, although I wouldn't deduct an egg for the product, the shipping was pretty bad. It was shipped in its original box with no outer packaging. I understand it's 30lbs, but having a device sit on my front porch all day when everyone who wanders by knows what it is doesn't give me a happy feeling. Also, the box arrived broken (the bottom tape was off and the flaps were opened) and one of the foam protectors was destroyed (which probably attributes to the damaged unit).
Pros: HIGHLY configurable, very comfortable, excellent response
Cons: Uses cloud tech and is always online, LMB doing the infamous double-clicking thing within a year.
Overall Review: As with many other people here, my Naga started the double-clicking left button thing within just about a year. It started as just a minor aggravation but has moved into the realm of unusable. The worst part was when I contacted them for warranty replacement, there is no option for cross shipping and the turnaround time was estimated at 3-4 weeks after they receive the broken one. I absolutely love this mouse (when it worked) and would hate to play any game without it for a few days, never mind a month.
I will probably end up sucking it up and buying another one because I love it, but I'm angry at both the flawed LMB design and the crazy exchange/repair/replacement/whatever policy.
Pros: Great cooling, tons of room, 2.5" drive bays for SSDs
Cons: Need to research power supplies to make sure the motherboard power will reach, top 200mm fan poor quality
Overall Review: I have owned three of these cases and although they are excellent for nearly everything you throw at them, their one huge defect is the 200mm fan on top. In all three of my cases, the fan started rattling within one year of purchase. I have had two replaced under warranty and I just sent my third RMA request in yesterday for the same defect. If they get the fan issue resolved, this case would be perfect in every way.
About my con re: power supply leads, make sure you research power supplies. Since the PSU sits on the bottom and most motherboards are designed nearly the same anymore, because of the size of this case, your PSU power leads may JUST make it to the top of the board. You will probably have to go around the video card for it to just reach. This thing is HUGE.
Pros: - Tons of connectors
- Pushes out loads of power
- Modular (for the most part)
Cons: I can't think of any.
Overall Review: When I saw the box for this thing, I thought Newegg had sent me two. It's HUGE. You can tell you're getting a piece of equipment that the company takes pride in; the power supply is wrapped in a soft, black bag and the connectors are in a very nice velcro pouch. You almost don't want to take it out because it looks so comfy.
I used it in an Antec Eleven Hundred case, so it is bottom-mounted. The attached, non-modular leads were JUST long enough to route through the case and reach the top of the motherboard. The modular leads were nice and long as well and I didn't need to stretch anything beyond its means.
It is powering an MSI Z77 board, an i7-3770K Ivy, 16GB RAM, a GTX670, 2 SSDs, a conventional HD, a sound card, 5 120mm & the big 200mm fans in the case, and a couple of DVD drives. All this and I think it's bored out of its mind.
You get what you pay for. Also, Newegg's shipping was spot on as usual.
