Pros: Handled the games I was playing. Quiet, though that isn't particularly important.
About a month ago my PC shut down when loading a game that is heavy on graphics. Wouldn't restart, I assumed the power supply or motherboard/processor had died (Would not post-powered off; with no 8-pin to processor it would stay on, but obviously not do anything, with/without video card (I tried 3) made no difference). Given it's 5 years old, I figured it's a good time to upgrade the rest of my system.
New motherboard, power supply, processor, and RAM- was working fine during setup. Unplugged a USB device, heard a pop, PC shut down. Rebooted with the side panel off, another pop and a flame on the video card. Not too thrilled that now the rest of my system was at risk, but hopefully it was just the card that died.
Installed an old 4850, and it's working again, so I don't know what to say about this card, other than it died prematurely.
Other Thoughts: I hate rating products poorly because of a defect. Working, it's a 5. But right now it's a very expensive paperweight.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RHM-556 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: The sound is good. I use these as the only speakers on my computer, and so far don't miss having PC speakers. The headset is comfortable, I have worn them for over 8 hours at a time, and I wear glasses.
The mic has had no complaints. I like that it can be retracted when not needed.
Cons: As they are comfortable and don't put a lot of pressure on your head, sudden movements would make them shift. The mic does pick up little sounds like keys tapping, but turning the mic volume down eliminates hearing it yourself at least.
Other Thoughts: For the price, I'm getting my girlfriend a pair, so we can both enjoy our movies, gaming, etc on the computer in 'silence.'
I've had mine for a little over a month, and use them every day.
