G.SKILL RIPJAWS SV710 Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Solid choice once tweaked. 09/21/2015

This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS SV710 Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset

Pros: The earcups feel quality and comfortable. Good sound isolation.
The red ambient internal lighting looks good. Retractable mic stays in position and is easy to manipulate and retract.
Decent sound quality once adjusted (read other thoughts).
Nice digital volume control buttons.
Very long cord with nice USB connector.
No drivers required for basic use.

Cons: Volume level: very loud even at 1 out of 100 volume. Not granular enough at low levels.
EQ: needs bass boost.
Need to talk loudly into the mic.

Other Thoughts: Sound quality is good, mids are not harsh while listening to music. Could use a touch more top end.
The volume issue is mitigated by turning on the bass boost in the Windows Playback Device properties (enhancements). Setting the boost to +9db at 50Hz takes up some of the volume headroom and makes the volume more manageable at lower levels. Adding bass really balances out the sound, let's the 50mm drivers shine.
The noise cancellation is nothing more than a volume gate with short attack and release. Your voice gets a little thinned out as well due to isolating certain frequencies. It can get annoying because you have to talk loudly and have the microphone close to your mouth. Would be nice to be able to turn it off.
I did not have any issues installing. On two PCs, Windows installed it instantly without going online. I'm dropping one star due to Mic noise gate and Volume control granularity.

OCZ Vertex 460A 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Speed - The drive's speed saturates the SATA 3 controller in block sizes 256kb and above. Read and Write are 535MB/s+. Speeds stayed consistent through extended testing,
Form and finish - Very nice metal enclosure. Very presentable in a nice computer.

Cons: The enclosure makes it's considerably heavier than most plastic drives which could matter for a portable machine;.

Other Thoughts: This drive performed as advertised. It pretty much pushes SATA 3 to the limit so the performance could be limited in not robustly implemented SATA 3 controllers. Tested with Intel X99 platform. If the new flash is as durable as advertised, this should be one of the best drives on the market.

Linksys EA9200-4A Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs High Perfomance 03/27/2015

This review is from: Linksys EA9200-4A Wireless AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router

Pros: Speed @ 2.4Ghz N
Speed @ 5.0GHz N
Speed @ 5.0GHz AC
Range @ 2.4GHz
Smooth performance, no ping increase from my wired 1000Mb! (16ms)

Cons: Firmware is a little plain for a high end router.
Only issue I had was when I got too close with a laptop, had to move a few feet away to get data moving. Can't really complain about that.
Price. ~$300

Other Thoughts: Wow, this thing is fast. I get a faster, more consistent Speedtest result using wireless! Yes, that does sound crazy. Yes it's true.
You can feel that there are no bottlenecks or weak links anywhere in this router. I can't say enough about the speed.
The range on 2.4GHz is excellent, my phone now stays connected when I go into a basement laundry room one building over.
I would take off one star for lack of configuration but it's a linksys after all. Wouldn't choose this for a centerpiece of my network but it makes for one heck of an access point.
For the networking inclined: It lets you set it up manually instead of forcing one of those out of box "wizards".
