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.

This review is from: MTX StreetAudio iX1 On-Ear Acoustic Monitor Headphones - Red
Pros: MTX StreetAudio iX1 On-Ear Acoustic Monitor Headphones what a name lol but what a great set of headphones. I myself do not normally use headphones as I find them cumbersome and unnecessary since I live alone. But I must say I truly enjoyed using these over the last 2 weeks and heard sounds I did not even know my games were making. These headphone are very well built with soft supple leather ear cuffs and aluminum adjustable band makes them tight without hurting your ears. The ability to plug in a second set of earphone in a daisy chain is awesome. I particularity liked the cable that comes with it (2 as a matter of fact) they are superbly made to avoid tangling I have seen with my former step-sons headsets, he constantly untangling it, I do not see this becoming an issue with these headphones. The sound reproduction of these headphones is superb as well. I used them a lot with my iPhone 5 listening to iTunes and WOW!!!! my iPhone never sounded so great. I also used these on several marathon gaming sessions and man oh man the games never sounded better, I cant believe the sounds I was missing until now. They also include a very nice and rugged carrying case with them that easily holds the entire scope of the packaging. Headphones and both cables which have a meshed pocket to hold them perfectly secure.
Cons: I really do not have any cons to mention I could not find a single thing bad with this headphones. So might say there to tight but I think that is a good point as it keeps them securely in place over your ears, as I mentioned in the pro's I did several long gaming sessions and found no fatigue at all.
Other Thoughts: if your looking to buy a nice lightweight superbly made set of headphones look no further. These are awesome great sound reproduction easy on the ears and head as well as the wallet. Having had the chance to review these has made me a headphone user where I normally did not before. Great construction handy carrying case and the ability to plug in another set of phones in daisy chain makes these tops in my book. Buy with confidence.READ FULL REVIEW
