Support SPCR by finding good homes for mostly new and near-new gear from our test labs! We always need to make room for more gear to be tested. Prices are much lower than new anywhere. Remember -- first come, first served! And if nothing looks appealing to you, maybe you know someone else who'd love to get their hands on that something here. Most items have been reviewed by SPCR. Look in the appropriate section on the main site to see what we think of it.

The gear listed here are tagged...
*(R) = used only for review testing, usually almost brand new
*(U) = used in the lab as part of a testing platform
*(AN) = extra samples that are as-new
*(N) = new items

For obvious reasons, there is no warranty, but unless stated otherwise, each item is in original working order.

** All prices are in US$; only paypal accepted, to mikec@silentpcreview.com. Shipping is not included unless stated otherwise; the postal service is used.

For shipping estimates, contact Mike by email only - (mikec@silentpcreview.com)
State clearly the items you're interested in and...
** If you are in Canada, state your postal code.
** If you are in the US, tell me your state.
** If you are elsewhere in the world, state your country.
Inquiries not following these simple guidelines will be ignored.

For those that don't know, Mike is great! He even measured the inside of the Antec 902 I bought to make sure my oversized motherboard would properly fit. Cheers again Mike, a pleasure to deal with you and help support the site.

Hi Mike,
I can't find the review for the Silverstone Ensemble EB02-S... I searched the site but I didn't get lucky. Could you point me to it please ?

The cost of shipping is usually prohibitive. Sending stuff by ship is sometimes OK cost-wise, but takes forever. For small, light high value things -- like CPUs -- it's doable, but for most other things, I don't recommend it.

Are most items still available?

I am looking to build a HTPC and am looking at the cases you have available. I'm in Victoria but know enough people in Van to arrange a pick up or drop off.

Thanks

Had to exclude shipping from case prices -- many are too heavy & big, cost nears $100 when shipping across to East coast. Don't have a big volume corporate acc which allows cheaper shipping.

Just a note: have you given a look to eBay's Global Shipping Programme rates? Maybe they can be competitive (I've bought a case in USA on ebay.com last month, I've paid less than 50 USD for end-to-end shipping up to Italy).
