WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a functional SATA drive with a decent cache.
Performance is average, about 130mb/s sustained read on the 6g/s connectors on my board. Access times were around 17ms.
Good price.

Cons: It's a hard disk.

Other Thoughts: I'll return to this review in the future and share what I can of it's reliability, but I doubt there will be problems.
If you're considering this drive, you might as well get it.

Logitech H800 USB Connector Supra-aural Wireless Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Careful - Might not be what you're looking for 04/16/2014

This review is from: Logitech H800 USB Connector Supra-aural Wireless Headset

Pros: Functional enough for VOIP, fairly comfortable. Easy set-up. Decent battery life.

Cons: Not for audiophiles. The receiver/transmitter pair has JUST enough bandwidth to perform it's job, so if you are talking and listening simultaneously and the USB bus is taxed at all, you're probably going to hear crackling over the right or both channels.

Other Thoughts: Had I researched them more thoroughly, I might have bought another product. This is the first logitech device that's really let me down in such a big way.

Logitech Wireless Headset h800 for PC, Tablets and Smartphones (981-000337)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Not high fidelity, but functional 04/16/2014

This review is from: Logitech Wireless Headset h800 for PC, Tablets and Smartphones (981-000337)

Pros: Comfortable, functional enough for VOIP. Bluetooth / MiniTRX switch means I can switch seamlessly to my phone and back. I saw one reviewer mention that his did not come with the mini dongle, but mine was in the compartment on the left earpiece.

Cons: After two months, I've learned that Intel speed-step may reduce the power and/or bandwidth to the USB port, which in turn reduces the wireless bandwidth to the headset, resulting in crackling from one or both sides.
Cramming the dongle into a USB3 port actually fixed it for me.

Other Thoughts: Most of these were probably returned for the crackling issue, which is a limitation of the medium, not an actual hardware problem. I assume they're not actually checking the batteries, so beware. Yours may have a similarly short charging life.
Since they're using Lithium packs, it's probably unwise to use them unplugged unless you really need to.
