This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE
Pros: Capacity, read/write speeds
Cons: See other
Other Thoughts: This is the second unit I have purchased, and I've had the same issue with both: When formatted with exfat or OS extended journaled, the drive simply starts to not be detected after a few days. My PC will only detect over USB 2.0, and on my mac it will only stay up for about 20 seconds, just long enough to corrupt anything I'm trying to move from one machine to another. I figured the first one for a fluke, but it's now official: I can't say how it works under NTFS, but I have a multi OS component that essentially requires EXfat, and for whatever reason this drive has issues with that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Definitive Technology Incline Desktop Computer Speaker with DAC - Pair (Black)
Pros: Amazing sound, built in DAC. 3.5mm jack, optical in
Cons: Proprietary speaker cable to attach speakers to each other, and it's not really all that long. Back panel covers 3.5mm and optical in ports and is . . . . attached EXTREMELY securely. If you use USB connection, it's not an issue.
Other Thoughts: Bought these on clearance from a local blue and yellow colored retailer, as they were priced to sell. Honestly I wasn't exactly sure what to expect from "audiophile" grade computer speakers. . Ive run M Audio monitors, the mainstream "high end" Klipsch Pro Media 2.1s, and at the price I got them and the description of the design, I was intrigued. I got them home, plugged them in, played with them for awhile, let my ears adjust to them [my current audio solutions are very treble heavy] and relaxed.
After several days, I don't want to get up or shut them off. THE SOUND IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I dunno if I'd pay the original price of $400, but if you can get these for $250 or less, and high quality audio experience is important to you, DON'T HESITATE!! They're clean, they're warm, they're amazingly forgiving on placement. . they honestly sound like speakers 2x their size. The passive radiators add plenty of low end, and it's as tight and responsive as you'd expect from a sealed passive rad setup.
This review is from: Razer Adaro Wireless - Bluetooth Headphones
Pros: Clear vibrant sound, [mostly] well constructed, long battery life.
Cons: Charging port cover is delicate enough that it came off the second time I attempted to pull it back. I was as gentle as I could be, but I guess it was more delicate.
Other Thoughts: Going into and coming back into sleep mode while these are attached can cause the audio to get muffled. . like a headphone cord that's half unplugged. I cannot determine whether this is an issue with my notebook or the headphones, so I'm mentioning it.
Overall, sound quality and general build quality are 5/5. Battery life is 5/5, range is 3/5 [SOMETIMES they go long distances, other times 4 ft away they start breaking up. Overall the product probably deserves 4.5/5 starts or so.
So why did I only give it 3 eggs?
When you turn on and off these headphones you get a nice verbal statement from a very european sounding female voice "your device is connected"
Upon shutting down, you get "your device is disconnect".
From ANY OTHER COMPANY this would not be worth mentioning, but this is Razer. It is a premium product developed by a private company that went out of their way to make sure the audio was spoken in EURO English, yet you get "device is disconnect". Yes, it's a nitpick. NO it does not affect the general performance of the sound from these headphones... but it drives me nuts every time I shut them off.
