Pros: Low-profile(but does take up 2 PCI spaces)
Cons: Bad performance for the money
Other Thoughts: For the same price, I could have gotten an older GDDR5 card with less memory and better performance.
I bought this to replace a 3yr older Radeon card, and that was my initial mistake. This one is much worse than that one, not only in my personal testing but also in written review, and scoring just over 950 on the PassMark benchmark.
Overall, it's my own fault for not doing my research prior and just trusting the numbers provided. I intend to ask for a refund but I don't expect it since it isn't faulty.
This review is from: Rosewill Helix RM-20 Mouse
Pros: I wasn't expecting much, I just needed a replacement. That being said, I'm pleasantly surprised that I got such a good mouse for so little.
The scroll wheel is nice and tight but also silent, I haven't had to clean off the foot pads, or blow dust out of the laser, or press the buttons extra firm to get them to work, or anything else that tends to plague similarly priced mice.
Cons: I was hitting the thumb buttons on accident for the first few days, but that's since stopped. I assume it just took getting used to.
Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased so far with this purchase... I only hope it holds up over time :D We'll see!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: inland 87052 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Multimedia Headset with Volume Control
Pros: Very lightweight
Not tight at all even after long periods
Good sounding microphone (while it lasts)
Decently clear sounding headphones (while they last)
Cons: Headphones are already starting to crackle
Friends complaining of microphone crackling already as well
Have only owned them for 2 weeks
Other Thoughts: The headphone crackling seems to be coming from the in-line volume control. When I'm not using them, they hang safely next to my desk and the cord is too short to have been run over by my chair (which had been a problem with previous headsets) so there is no reason for it to be acting up this early. The cords don't get bent or twisted in any way but when I purposefully move the area around the volume control, even mildly, I hear the crackling in the headset.
The microphone crackling seems to be intermittent as I can find no direct action that is causing it. I only ever move the microphone up and down a couple inches which is well within it's range of motion.
