Turtle Beach Ear Force Z300 Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs $39 headset for $200 12/13/2015

This review is from: Turtle Beach Ear Force Z300 Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset

Pros: 1.) Sound quality is good for games
2.) 2 simultaneous inputs
3.) Mic is not as problematic as with older models

Cons: 1.) Extremely short wireless range
2.) Annoying, low quality voice prompts that stop your audio when they play
3.) Cheap, problematic USB receiver that loses connection when you're 12 inches away from it.
4.) Shallow, poor sound quality for music. The much less expensive PX3 has better sound quality.
5.) Low Battery prompt doesn't always work, and so sometimes it just turns off without warning.
6.) Short battery life. Not even close to advertised 14 hours.
7.) Receiver is flimsy and feels like it's going to break when you click the pairing button.

Other Thoughts: Just skip these. I got them on a black friday sale for $89 and even for that price I'm highly disappointed. I love the PX3, except for the fact that when it powers off, the whole thing has to be reset to make the microphone work again. That's the only reason I 'upgraded.' The quality and build of this headset feels like it's a $39 Logitech that I bought at Target.

The sound quality is fine for gaming. There is some, but not much noise canceling.

Just skip this and get something else. $200? Really?

MSI GeForce GTX 970 DirectX 12 GTX 970 4GD5T OC 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No coil whine.
Quiet
Triple the performance of my previous card (7870)
Don't have to SLI to play games in 1080p

Cons: I have had this card for 4 months now. No problems experienced until this month. Recently the Nvidia driver started crashing a lot, and sometimes games just crash to the desktop. I have done extensive temperature, power, and stress testing.

Other Thoughts: I want to love this card. But I am feeling like I should have chosen another brand. Maybe I just got unlucky. I'll try to work with MSI and see what happens.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's fast. It's energy efficient. It's almost completely silent. It has about triple the performance of my old 7870. It has great OC tools. The price was pretty good. Zero coil whine.

Cons: It sags a little

Other Thoughts: This is a very long card. You need a large case. You need 2x6 ping power cables. It's not super power-hungry, so you don't 'need' a high wattage PSU with an intel system.
