Pros: Very durable keyboard and does what it is supposed to.
Cons: Doesn't save the back light settings so you need to set them every time you turn on your PC. Didn't think this would annoy me (I read it in other reviews prior to purchase) but it does.
Keys are quite a bit louder than I expected. I got the Brown Cherry MX and they are much louder than I thought they would be based on other keyboards I have used. The keys are much lighter touch and give less feedback than normal brown cherry mx switches. I can feel the bump, but it is definitely less than on standard brown cherrys.
Other Thoughts: If I had to do it again I might have just gone with the blue cherry or black cherry. Not enough feedback off these keys to make them much different than the blacks and they are too loud to make it much different than the blues. The black switches would have given more force behind the keys and the blues more feedback. I had a sample set of keys from (another website) and these keys feel nothing like the keys I got in the sample.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XBOX 360 Wireless Network Adapter N
Cons: Product attempted to connect to my network and promptly corrupted my XBOX 360 causing a red ring of death. My first time encountering the infamous red ring. Very angry right now because this product is replace only and I have 0 confidence in plugging a replacement into the new XBOX 360 I am going to have to buy because of this piece of garbage.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS. There must be no quality control on these products if they can brick a perfectly working XBOX 360 within literally 30 seconds of plugging it in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MKII
Pros: Great sound quality
In-line audio and mic control
Well padded earphones
Good noise canceling
Comfortable to wear
8 foot cord
Cons: The earphones spin nearly 90 degrees in each direction to hug your head no matter how oddly shaped. This would be a plus, but it leaves the headphones feeling like they are going to break in your hand every time you pick them up. They seem to be of sturdy construction other than this issue so it might just be the strangeness of having the headset rearrange itself every time I pick it up.
Other Thoughts: Didn't know whether to put this in pros or cons, but this headphone is not wireless.
This can be seen as a pro because wireless headsets tend to have poor sound quality, but I consider it equally a con because corded = fragile. Every corded headset I've owned has failed due to a wiring problem and usually within the first 8 months of ownership. This is fine when you're buying $15-$20 headsets, but when you're shelling out $100 for one a failure due to poor soldering after 6-8 months is not what you want.
I want to stress that this headset has not yet failed me, but at $100 price tag, I'm treating it like my first born (surrounding it by guards, shooting first and asking no questions later when anyone gets near it).
