SAMSUNG SD590 Series S27D590P Black High glossy 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The stand is quite stable. Also the rear control stick and UI work quite well.

Cons: Everything else... The stand does not allow the monitor to be completely vertical, making it tilt back. The backlight bleeds through very badly, starting at the right and left edges and continuing 1/3 across the screen. My rather old Samsung 2433BW monitor actually has far less bleed. Also, the display looks crazy bright, forcing me to lower the contrast on both the display and the video card settings to zero, plus lowering the video card's gamma setting quite a lot. Even then, I still preferred my old monitor's image quality over this one (which was a total shock). Most people would compliment the brightness and contrast, but I found it to be a nuisance, irritating my eyes, and hard to reduce without hurting the image quality. Seriously, it was crazy bright. As for the IPS tech in the display, I couldn't tell that there were more colors in the image. The colors in my old monitor literally looked the same (if not better, given the brightness problems).

Other Thoughts: Maybe my old Samsung 2433BW was unusually high quality for its era, but I was severely disappointed with this PLS monitor. It has actually made me question the value of IPS at all. I certainly won't buy a Samsung again since I simply can't trust them to deliver quality any more.

Rosewill - 3.5mm Stereo Coupler (2 Pack)

5 out of 5 eggs Good Quality 01/26/2013

This review is from: Rosewill - 3.5mm Stereo Coupler (2 Pack)

Pros: I'm listening to 32-bit music through my Sound Blaster X-Fi, Monster cable, Klipsch in-ear headphones, and this coupler. The audio sounds great. The only improvement I can make to this setup is a professional audio receiver and studio monitors. This is apparently a good product.

Cons: Why is one blue? It's not a con, though. I just thought I'd type something. :P

Logitech 980186-0403 Silver USB Connector USB Desktop Microphone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Low Volume and No Bass 08/09/2012

This review is from: Logitech 980186-0403 Silver USB Connector USB Desktop Microphone

Pros: It's weighted base stays in place. The mute/on button is convenient. The audio quality is decent for the price.

Cons: This mic picks up no bass at all. I have a low bass voice, so I sound like a young high school kid with this thing despite being a grown man. The volume pickup is very low. Since it uses USB instead of mini-jack, I can't use gain boost and such.

Other Thoughts: If you're gonna do a lot of mic stuff that other people will hear, then I highly recommend investing in a more expensive option.
