PLANTRONICS .Audio 655 DSP USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Gread sound, but this is not true Circumaural 05/13/2013

This review is from: PLANTRONICS .Audio 655 DSP USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset

Pros: Nice sound.
Volume control on a headset.

Cons: Too small, probably it is circumaural for kids.
Mic is muted only when boom is lifted up (and you, basically not exactly sure about that). Would be nice to have a mute button and some indication.
1 egg because a product doesn't correspond it's title.

Other Thoughts: I purchased those only because of the keyword "Circumaural", however this is not exactly true. Those are bigger than my other headsets but still not covering ears and going over them making a pain after some time.

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fastest consumer grade drive. Running tests even with the old firmware shows a speed about the advertised. Highly recommended. But make sure you've updated the firmware.

Cons: Comes with an old (1.3) firmware and you need to update the firmware before putting any data into the drive. Updating a firmware is destructive. Also I may assume that updating a firmware for some people may be quite a hassle.

-1 egg for the old firmware and destructive update

Virtual machine on this drive shows a superior performance on write (about 2x times faster), however read speed is about the same and random R/W operations 3x times slower than on regular hard drive.

-1 egg for performance for Virtual machines.

Gnome disk utility shows quite uneven read speed with long "dips" when it goes about 2x times slower than the maximum.

-1 egg for uneven performance

Just discovered that there is a new firmware on "backing" at OCZ website. Even it says it is non-destructive just in case I need to backup an entire drive
again. Not very convenient.

-1 egg for yet another hassle. OCZ should test the product first than be the "first" with the fastest drive on the marke

Other Thoughts: Update a firmware first, it is destructive.
I prefer to use a Linux based tool to upgrade the firmware. You need UNetbootin tool and a flash drive and download ISO image Anyway you need to run a firmware update when an OS is not running (i.e. you cannot update a system drive).

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fastest consumer grade drive. Running tests even with the old firmware shows a speed about the advertised. Highly recommended. But make sure you've updated the firmware.

Cons: Comes with old (1.3) firmware and you need to update the firmware before putting any data into the drive.

-1 egg for the old firmware.

Other Thoughts: I prefer to use a Linux based tool to upgrade the firmware. The only thing you need to put in on a USB drive. Very easy to do.

Just to repeat what I've said at the beginning - update a firmware before putting any data to this drive. A firmware update is destructive.
