This review is from: Steren 252-601 Steren 1 5' 2 5mm male to 2 5mm male - stereo
Pros: Kind of hard to screw up a stereo cable, not much to say here.
Cons: Their failure to use any sort of punctuation in their listing lead me to believe I was ordering a 5 foot cable, where as it is actually a 1.5 foot cable.

This review is from: Creative Labs GH0100 Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset
Pros: Nice quality, pretty flashy headset lights
Cons: Heavy, hot, stupid power level logic. My biggest problem with this headset since day one is that it apparently will refuse to stay on if the battery is dead, EVEN IF THE CHARGER IS PLUGGED IN. Without delving into the wonderful world of expletives, I cannot properly express how mad this makes me. When my headset battery runs out and I plug it into a wall adapater, I expect it to stay on since it has a constant supply of power from the wall outlet, This is NOT the case. I spent $160 on this headset and I actually regret doing so. Granted, a lot of the reason for grabbing it was the free game time card dropped the effective price to $130, but still, I would definitely not buy this headset again. I also had to RMA it twice for various malfunctions over the time the warranty was valid. I do not enjoy buying what equates to a high performance, high price car and getting this kind of sad performance and quality.
Other Thoughts: The LED light colors to indicate charge status would be handy if they were not on the back of the headset where you can't see it while wearing. Flashing a red LED at me to tell me the battery is dying does not do me much good if I can't see it. A certain other manufacturer embedded a tiny red LED in the microphone boom, which was visible while wearing. Such a great feature that this expensive headset failed to include. Also, the removable microphone was at first a potential perk, but I ended up quickly losing the microphone and had to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a replacement. Swivel boom, anyone?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap + effective, would have been good for mom's facebooking / flash games.
Cons: I'm extremely put off by this being described as "Low Profile Ready" without including the bracket. If you're going to advertize it as Low Profile, include the bracket. There's no reason I need to run around and buy extra hardware for a video card when that hardware consists of about 25 cents worth of aluminum.
Other Thoughts: I love my EVGA motherboard and video card, but this is one of those "why" moments where you really just have to wonder if it was really worth losing a sale because you're too worried about saving costs to include a simple, cheap-to-produce bracket (this comment aimed at EVGA and not Newegg). Another brand's card costs $2 more and includes the bracket. They gained a sale + support because of that.READ FULL REVIEW
