Fractal Design Define R4 PC Case - Black/Pearl by Define R4
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I bought this case for a development machine for work. First off, the case is really really big--if you're planning on hiding this in a corner, it won't work. This is definitely more of a specialist case for someone that wants lots of room. This means, however, that there's tons of space. There 9 3.5" hard drive bays (compatible with 2.5" SSDs as well, but not tool-less for either) and two optical drive bays at the top. Only need 2 drives? That's fine--6 of the hard drive bays easily remove to allow for better airflow. Speaking of airflow, the case comes with 2 140mm fans, one in the front and one in the back. It has space for a LOT more, too. All case fan ports support either 120mm or… Read more

Rather than "standable feet", this keyboard has a permanent lip on the back to prop it up a bit. That said, it feels fairly flat. If you usually type with the feet out, this one may… Read more
AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable 9.8 Feet / &hellip by AmazonBasics
I don't really know what I can say about a cable. It gets signal from Point A to Point B, and the price is reasonable.

Don't be tempted by other companies selling gold-plated cables at extortionate prices. HDMI uses a digital signal, meaning that signal loss doesn't really occur in the same way as an analog cable. Either the signal arrives or it doesn't. In my case, it arrives just fine in my dual-monitor setup.

Hooking this up to your TV may cause some resolution funkiness, but that has absolutely nothing to do with this cable, it's an issue with the TV or computer.

Long story short, this cable works and is cheap. That's pretty much all I need from a string… Read more
