This review is from: Razer Kraken 7.1 Surround Sound USB Over Ear Gaming Headset
Pros: Loud, like really really loud.
Cons: If you have a larger head these might be a bit uncomfortable.
Other Thoughts: These work in combo with Razer Synapse and Razer Surround, both of which I have had various ups and downs. The headsets themselves are very nice. They look great and sound amazing. I use them for music, gaming, movies, or just when I want to have eargasms in general. They are great for blocking out external noise as well.
The mic is very good, and tucks away when not in use. I've been told that I'm clear over chat and it has nice sensors to block out background noise and easily picks up when you are talking and when you aren't.
Overall they have a good range of sounds. Booming bass, warm middle, and highs don't sound sharp or tinny which is nice in my opinion. As I said before the bass on these is loud which is great for the genre's of music I like to listen. I think the highest I've turned up the volume is 60/100 and that was making the whole headset shake on my ears. Not to mention that I felt like my eardrum were about to rupture.
My one complaint, they tend to squeeze my ears a bit, especially the longer you wear them. I wouldn't say my head is huge but its probably above average. Generally I cant use these for more than three or fours hours at a time, which sucks because they have great sound but I don't like getting head aches while I'm trying to listen to music. I would recommend trying to find a pair in a store or seeing if a friend has one to try on first to see how they will sit on your head. However I don't think that a little bit of squeeze really detriments the headphones, as the sound and mic quality of this headset is so amazing.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: Decent overall read and write speed, really depends more on your CPU for that anyways.
Useful for when you have that DVD or CD that you still need to use on occasion. Really the best part it the price.
Pros: Great price, fits a PCI 1.0 if you have one.
Cons: Really not the best for newer games. Definitely not something you can expect to run highest settings on for most games but will run most things that you will want to play.
Other Thoughts: I've moved onto a more expensive higher up GPU but if I remember some some the FPS on games I played it would be something like Skyrim 45-ish on low to med settings, some random MMO's 60 fps easy.
Honeslty, I wouldn't recommend this as a gaming GPU but if you need something cheaper just to run basic programs or some light video work or something along that nature this will do the trick.
