Philips SHP9500 Over-Ear Headphone Exclusive - Black

4 out of 5 eggs Good sound and build quality 06/10/2016

This review is from: Philips SHP9500 Over-Ear Headphone Exclusive - Black

Pros: This is a nice quality headset for almost any application. I paired this headphone with a microphone and use it for gaming and music. Sound quality is the best I've heard, and the build quality/construction is very impressive. Comfortably is amazing.

Cons: The size setting for the headband seems to move with normal use, and requires adjustment throughout the day.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that these are open headphones, so even moderate sound levels will blast sound across an open area. Not ideal for a quiet office environment or library, for example. However, my understanding is that open headphones provide better sound quality compared to closed headphones, so there is certainly a reason for it.

The headband (the metal part that clamps around your head) is very loose. If you have a smaller head or move around a lot, these will probably fall of of your head quite a bit. I personally do NOT have an issue with this, but some people have complained, and I must admit they are quite loose. The upside to this is that they are VERY comfortable, and I've had no issues wearing them all day long.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Value - Great Performance 11/18/2013

Pros: Great monitor for the price. Works well for gaming, including games like CS GO. Highly recommended.

Cons: none

PNY GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectX 11 VCGGTX650T1XPB 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Performance is fantastic for the price. Getting 230 FPS average on CS GO with visual settings maxed out and 1440x900 resolution.

Card is relatively small, but that's a good thing!

Cons: Not a con necessarily, but something to be aware of is the clock speeds during game play. I can't say for sure this was a problem specific to the driver or CS GO, but this is my experience.

The game would occasionally drop FPS from ~200 FPS to ~25. This was very intermittent so I brushed it off at first. After a while I decided to install GPUZ so I could monitor clock speeds, temps, etc.

To my surprise I discovered that the GPU and Memory clocks were dropping during game play to the minimum speeds (power saving). This certainly explained why I was seeing the random FPS drops.

I was able to easily fix this problem by going into Nvidia control panel and changing the mode from "Adaptive" to "Performance". Now, anytime the game is loaded, whether I'm playing actively or not, the GPU and memory clocks are 100%, and I've yet to see the problem pop back up.

Again, this is more specific to Nvidia drivers and/or CS GO and not necessarily the card itself. Others have had the same problem with different Nvidia cards.
