Sony PS4/PS3 Gold Wireless Stereo Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing for the Price 05/29/2014

This review is from: Sony PS4/PS3 Gold Wireless Stereo Headset

Pros: - Fits very well and is comfortable
- Works on PC, Mac, PS3, and PS4
- Can change the equalizer settings on the PS3 or PS4 app and they will apply to the "2" setting on the headset, meaning that equalizer setting will be in effect on the PC and Mac as well.
- Plug and Play
- Great Sound quality!
- 7.1 virtual surround sound on the PS3 and PS4
- Long Battery life
- Built in hidden mic

Cons: Mic quality isn't the best, it's great for online games, but if you record videos and do narration or voice overs, look for something higher quality.

Otherwise, it's great for skype and chatting while gaming.

Other Thoughts: For the price, and the fact that it works on PC as well, this is a steal

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe MKNSSDCR240GB-DX 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Fast, very fast!!!
-Boots windows 7 in about 8-10 seconds
-I can open multiple programs with near instant speed
-Makes my overall system feel much faster.
-Even with a lot of programs to load on startup, the desktop loads very quickly, virtually no waiting time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive since last October (2013) and have had no problems whatsoever. The online reviews for this drive were very good and the user reviews were good as well as well. I've always gone with Mushkin for RAM and I thought, why not for SSDs as well. I was not disappointed :)

I've had good experience with Mushkin's customer service in the past (2007) when I had a bad stick of RAM. They tested the sticks, while sending me updates about them, and sent me a brand new pair the following week. I hope that their customer quality has remained the same.

I highly recommend this Solid State Drive both for its price and performance.

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Large amount of storage
-Pretty quiet (after firmware update)
-Great performance for storing and loading games off of.

Cons: Intermittent chirp when I first got this and was very concerned. Doing a little research revealed that it was a problem with disk parking and the acceleration and deceleration of the disk...Imagine going fast in a car and suddenly slamming the breaks and then flooring the gas again.....and that happening multiple times.

Fortunately there is a firmware update to fix that, although the chirp remained for a while, less intermittent, after the firmware update; it did go away eventually.

Other Thoughts: Even though the drive performs well today, the intermittent chirp, along with the fact that many others had the same problem, along with the chirp would lead to disk failure, also with that many Seagate drives (especially this model) have failed and along with that I don't see a manufacturer's response to the negative reviews; is more than enough to deter me from making any future Seagate purchases. I understand that not all drives are perfect and they all fail eventually, but, from what I have observed, Seagate has an alarming failure rate even today. It shows me that after a year of my purchase, Seagate has done nothing to rectify the problem. At least Western Digital shows that they care by responding to the negative reviews with a manufacturer's response here on newegg and offer help.

I consider myself lucky that my drive hasn't failed me yet, if at all, but my next purchase will not be from Seagate unless I see a change in quality and customer service satisfaction.
