This review is from: Sennheiser HD239 On-Ear Headphones
Pros: Good sound with a strong bass. I really like so called Open-Aire acoustic system. This is my favorite Headphone at a moment. I paid only $40 during Black Friday sale and can say that the sound worth every penny I spent on it.
Cons: I wouldn't pay the full price, despite the sound quality. I was very careful with these phones and never moved them away from my desk; used not more than for 50 hours total. Tonight the left driver suddenly died in the middle of song. Had to disassemble the left side and to solder wire which simply fell off from a little PCB. This wire goes from PCB to speaker and should never be under any stress, except a vibration. Soldering quality is just ridiculous. That's why I knocked-off two stars
Other Thoughts: The cord is short, but it might be considered as a benefit.
With the bass going strong, at times it feels like equalizer's help is needed to raise up some high frequencies.
Ear pads are soft and comfy, but not perfect.
The overall value is great. Just don't know when solder joints will fail on the right side.
Honestly, I wouldn't write this review if not the soldering quality. I assume there will be others frustrated with the same issue.
The disassembling wasn't that hard. Just slightly squeeze ear pad and pull it out. They are exchangeable and therefore it shouldn't be hard to take them off. Next step will be to remove 3 screws and carefully pull the plastic grille with attached speaker out of housing. All wires and solder joints are accessible.
Otherwise, contact the manufacturer and enjoy your 2-years warranty :)
This review is from: RAIDMAX RX-450K Continuous 450 watts ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V Power Supply
Pros: Works as it should. Seems to be a good product.
Cons: Power cable is really cheap - just compare its connector against most of other power cables and you will know why I complain. It was working for few days, until I decided to burn CD - PC simply died in a middle of process.
Other Thoughts: PSU looks unusual with external fan, but that should be OK in most PC cases. Wires are not as good, as on old HP 300W PSU. Only one power connector for SATA drive - good thing I had a handful of adapters. Power cable (AC) should be replaced with a good one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RC-209-EX PCI 2.3, 32bit, 33/66Mhz SATA Controller Card
Pros: Works great in WinXP SP2 environment. Smooth installation. Allows to connect up to 4 HDD's. Manufacturing quality looks solid as well.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I saw many complaints about user manual printing quality - I got perfectly printed one: I could set all jumpers without opening PDF from CD. (just feel lucky...)
By the way: product description doesn't say that all 6 channels should work at the same time - this card allows to select 4 (out of 6) channels, in any configuration.
