This review is from: SteelSeries H Circumaural Wireless Headset
Pros: SteelSeries H Circumaural Wireless Headset is an awesome headset bar none. I've used a few different headsets thru the years and these are by far the best ever. Inside the box you'll find every connector you'll need and not to mention power plugs for if I recall correctly every part of the world. @ batteries for endless gaming or audio listening enjoyment. You easily charge one battery in the base while using the second one. But don't expect to be having to change it very often I got well over 15hours on one and it was still going when i shut it down. The sound quality was superior to any headset i have used prior to these. Somewhat easy to set up with basic knowledge of audio systems. Had minor issues connecting it to my pc but it didn't take long to figure out. The base unit which is small and in my honest opinion very well done can easily placed on your desk without taking up to much real estate. Has a very sleek white lighting scheme that isn't over bearing at all. Has different profiles for all your audio needs. PC, console,Home Theater. Low latency is advertised and I can say without a doubt I noticed non at all. Sounds were heard as they were produced. Basically saying when i pulled the trigger I instantly heard the shot. Unlike other headsets I've used where it seemed to be a slight delay in sound from action. Another sweet feature is when using these on your HTPC (or other home theater setup) you dont have to get up or fidget for a remote, you simply use the on-ear buttons to make whatever changes you need to make your listening environment better.
Cons: Cons well gonna be picky here but hey need to say a little bit. The instructions for an item of this price caliber I found to be lacking. Why put all this effort in to designing a the unit this great with all the bundles accessories and skimp out on full fledged instructions. Granted a lot of folks who buy this type of item normally can fumble their way thru it, but you have to keep the newer class of folks just starting into this arena something more than here is the manual if you cant figure it out call us/ or go online method. Second con is the price its a tad expensive @299$ but some would argue that for its quality and performance its worth it, I have to agree there.
Other Thoughts: Superior build quality, superior sound quality. Without a doubt a headset that sets a new mark for other to reach for. I am truly stoked at this units overall Quality. Nothing feels flimsy or ready to break, and very very comfortable for those marathon sessions of gaming or audio enjoyment. If your looking for a great headset look no further this is the one you have been looking for.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 16GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-16GB-NA
Pros: The CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 16GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-16GB-NA is a very very small USB device for moving your photos or files from your Android device to your computer and vice versa. It is USB 3.0 ready and is backwards compatible to USB 2.0 standards. File transfer speeds are awesome was able to very quickly load it up fully from my camera/Phone to my desktop without the annoying slow upload speed of mt former method using a USB cable. I am truly amazed at how fast this very tiny USB stick is. I can see its size being a pro and a con. On the pro side since this is the part of the review were on, its size will allow for several of these to be stored into your camera's case or whatever carrying device you use without being overly cumbersome. With the changeable caps you can easily see which one you use for what purpose. Also a huge plus is that it requires no software or app to use it, very very nice Corsair. I hate having to install software or apps to use simple devices like this one. Another pro is its price, at this price I'd happily buy several to have spares about and not break the bank.
Cons: The only con I found with this is also a pro. That being its size. I can see it easily getting lost or left behind cause its so small it'll be easily overlooked. But as I mentioned its size for me is a huge pro. And as i was typing my other thought I remembered one last con. It only works for android devices and Windows/Mac desktops I cant believe they did not give it iPhone support. But thats also a neg against iPhone as they dont put USB ports on them.
Other Thoughts: Without a doubt this is a very fine product Corsair has brought to us. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for small portable storage solutions for their mobile devices. Except iPhone's but again thats more of an iPhone issue not a fault of this flash drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great processor way way better than Bulldozer 8 cores easily overclocks. Handles everything I've thrown at it and asks for more. These are highly binned processors that they have been able to throw high volts at to guarantee the speeds its rated for and then some. Don't cry about the price guys it beats an Intel CPU for bang for buck. A price premium should be expected for the binning process.
Cons: runs hot but its expected with a 220w TDP this should really not be a con as we should expect higher temps since its made this way. But wanted to put it here so others will see. You need a GOOD QUALITY Heat-sink with GOOD QUALITY fans or water cooling to tame this beast. Do not expect a 30$ cooler to handle it (in other words don't expect your CM 212+ EVO to keep it in check) it just isn't smart.
Other Thoughts: OK this should be known for those just foraging into high end computers. You will need a motherboard with solid VRM's good power phases and cooling on the NB and VRM area of the board, if you plan on overclocking (even if you don't good power and vrms are a must). If you plan on overclocking this beast you'll need active cooling on the vrm's as well as a GOOD motherboard (don't expect your 75$ board to handle the power requirements this bad boy needs. Get yourself a GOOD QUALITY board and enjoy it. I'm running mine in a Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z and its sweet. But even it needs active cooling for the vrm's I'll be adding the full cover water-block for the board in the very near future. ALL in ALL this beast is very good at what it was designed to be, One of the Fastest (GHz) processor on the market.
