Pros: The sound from the headphones is good; haven't done extensive testing. The earcups seal out noise from the environment rather well.
Cons: I have a hard time with headphones that grab my ears too tightly. Generally I prefer earcups that encircle my entire ear. These earcups do a good job sealing out sound but they make my ears quite sore after even 30-45 minutes of use.
Other Thoughts: Got these on a Black Friday special; because of that I will keep them. They are too uncomfortable for extended use, which is too bad because they have a lot of promise.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-S084C
Pros: Bus powered, small. Works well with a variety of OS'es. Own one and decided to pick one up for the office. Works with win 2000 as well and has been a real lifesaver around the office for mobile laptops w no optical drive. Also great for systems that are having trouble with their optical drive or for a system that needs a second DVD burner.
Cons: None so far!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER COSMOS S RC-1100-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: I didn't realize how big this thing was!! However, it is excellent for cooling - many places to attach 120mm fans. More room than you will know what to do with, also built in in cable management. Styling is sleek, case is easy to open and has plenty of room for growth. Has Esata on the front panel along with 4 USB ports and firewire. Love this case.
Cons: Furniture sized case - it could suffice as an end table, no joke. Has a shock-mounted hard drive enclosure which sits inside 3 of the 5.25" bays - very difficult to remove. Open the metal "shutters" on the front, take out the blank plates/grates, unlock the retaining clip and push that thing right out. Takes a significant amount of force.
There is a spot to mount a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case; the vibration will transfer directly to the case if you don't put a gasket or rubber ring of some kind there underneath the fan (VERY loud) and the screws are very difficult to reach from the bottom of the case due to the contour of plastic molding on the bottom. Not impossible, just annoying.
Other Thoughts: Watch out for the 200mm fan on the side! The fan protrudes so far into the case that my Dark Knight CPU heat sink bumped into it. I had to remove the fan from the side panel, take off the snazzy looking "Cosmos S" grill and mount the fan to the outside of the case. Aesthetic sacrifice for function. I would advise that you double check your CPU cooler and make sure that it fits between the 200 mm fan and the motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
