This review is from: MG51-USB - Magnum True 5.1 Surround Sound USB Over Ear Headset with Mic - Black
Pros: 1. Good surround sound despite being USB only. After all the bad things I heard about quality around USB only model headsets, I was surprised to hear how good things were. Great bass and wonderful surround.
Cons: 1. First and foremost, the makers of this headset took forever to deliver this. I had to wait three weeks for it to arrive, and when I questioned why it took so long via customer service email, I received no response. Terrible customer service quality if you want something quickly.
2. The cord on this headset is very short. It is only 4 or 5 feet long, which is not nearly long enough if you want any kind of movement while on your computer.
3. Terribly built. After only two months of use the piece attached to the left speaker snapped, making it impossible to keep pressed against your head. It wasn't abused, there are no kids or animals in my home to abuse it while I am away, and when they broke they were simply resting on my head. I shifted in my chair and it simply broke.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy these headphones ever again. They feel very cheaply made, the way it sits on your head is very uncomfortable you can't rely on them to last more than a few months.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS .Audio 326 Supra-aural Stereo Headset
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, affordable.
Cons: Cheaply made, not durable in the least.
Not USB, but that can't be expected on everything.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these boys for Christmas in 2011 and in less than 3 months both of these headphones fell apart. They weren't under heavy use; hell, they didn't even come out of the box until two months after they got them, and they couldn't stay held together. For $20 I expect much higher quality and durability in my headphones. Save your money and buy a different pair of headphones; these ones will break on you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: This keyboard is solid. I've owned it since November of last year and haven't had any problems with it in the technical aspect.
Cons: It get me food and water.
Other Thoughts: I use this keyboard every day, and the only problem I've had with it is the paint on the w, a, s, d, q, e, v, n, o and m keys is rubbing off; same thing goes for the enter and caps lock key. Other than that, everything's fine.
Earlier this year I spilled SODA on the keyboard and thought it was going to be ruined. To my surprise, it worked absolutely perfectly. After a bit of cleaning to get rid of the sticky residue left by the soda, everything is fine. I've owned other keyboards that died after experiencing something like this, so needless to say I'm thoroughly impressed with this product. I would definitely buy again if this beast decides to die.
