Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Supra-aural Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs They don't suck 06/19/2013

This review is from: Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Supra-aural Headset

Pros: Comfortable. Light. Voice clarity is very good.

Cons: The cord is very long. Might be a pro for some but it gets tangled up and catches on stuff around my desk constantly. I've had to tape up tears in the wire sleeve from getting caught under my chair wheels.

ViewSonic VX2250wm-LED Black 21.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great colors, crisp, thin. Very bright for sunny rooms. Nice and straight forward OSD.

Cons: I know not to expect much from built-in speakers but it's like they actually took the speakers out of a PSP and built them into the back of the monitor facing straight backwards. They're beyond horrible.

The dynamic contrast isn't that great. Being an LED it should have better control over the lighted and darkened zones. The whole thing goes dark when you bring up a dark web page making multi-tasking annoying.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up at a pawn shop for $95. I highly recommend it if you can pick it up on sale and you're looking for a deal. For $160 (current Newegg price after discount) I would probably go with something else.

XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easily among the best graphics muscle for the money. I can run most games at 1920x1080 on maxed graphics on my 37" screen.

XFX lifetime warranty is nothing to laugh at either.

Cons: Runs HOT! I have great airflow in my case. With the stock cooler it was ~60C idle and over 95C under heavy load.

Slapped a Zalman VF700 on it. It's not supported but it will fit. However, it just doesn't have the cooling power to satisfy this card. The heat issues got even worse.

Didn't deduct eggs because of the XFX lifetime warranty and modern chips are hard to overheat.

ATI cards can be quirky with some games.

Other Thoughts: Buy a good aftermarket cooler with RAM syncs for this card if you have any hopes of overclocking.

I'm going to get a Zalman VF1000 with some copper RAM syncs to put on this card and bring the temps down to a reasonable level.
