Pros: - Price per GB
- Stays relatively cool
- Rock solid stability (2.5 years now)
Cons: - 16MB cache, but whatever, this is a blue drive.
Other Thoughts: - I've had this drive since may of 2011 for a backup for my personal files, pictures, documents and my music. Drive is still 100% sound via SMART, HDTune, CrystalDisk and Speedfan diagnostics. The HDD gets used about 2 hours every day and it still behaves as it did the day i bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Screen is responsive and very bright
- VERY thin. i underestimated the thickness dimensions quite a bit. The dimensions listed are including the stand (so 6.66" for stand base). The thickness is about 10mm.
- Very low power consumption. Leads to the monitor staying quite cool (temperature wise :P).
- I prefer the gloss finish, some do not, i think it makes the monitor look sharp and prominent on the desk.
Cons: - View angle is very limited. Expected with non-IPS though
- The stand is short compared to many other monitors i have used.
- It's shown in the pictures, but the horizontal DVI/VGA input makes wall mounting difficult.
- Screen is very prone to smudging and is difficult to clean. Would leave me to believe there is no protective layering on the LCD screen.
Other Thoughts: Black friday deal, $99.99. wish i had bought 2 more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: - The padded headrest is very plush and VERY comfortable
- The 7.1 surround does a fantastic job of simulating the sound.
- I have ran bass tests, digital surround, Pro Logic II and some high treble tests. Fantastic in every regard.
- Battery life is great, i had 9 hours straight of moderate use before the low-battery signal began.
- The microphone is roughly 70% noise-cancelling. Using audacity's decibel tests and a separate microphone i was able to do some recording and testing.
Cons: - This may be obvious to some, but these are not noise cancelling headphones (inverting sound waves). These are more along the lines of noise-isolating earphones.
- The foam cushioning may be too large for people with larger ears, or ears that stick out pretty far. I have moderate size ears and the cushioning presses lightly around the outside of my ears. For me it's comfortable.
Other Thoughts: - The previous review stated that there was humming in his headset with the USB charger plugged in. I did not have any humming with or without the charger plugged in. Likely a bad set.
- The sound truly is fantastic, i had to remove my headset a few times to make sure i wasn't hearing my regular 7.1 stereo set. This was done in a quiet environment though.
- Leather or leatherette circumaural tends to block outside noise (isolate) a bit better than the microfiber does. However, i find the microfiber to be a bit more comfortable and less hot.
- Like most electronics, and particularly these Li-ion batteries, always charge something full before using it. It improves the capacity.
