This review is from: Kingston HyperX Edition Steelseries Siberia v2 Headset
Pros: Very comfortable. Retractable mic is convenient. I only pull it out far enough to be next to my mouth. No need to pull the mic out and hang in front of my lips. Everyone is able to hear me loud and clear.
Comes with a cord extension if you need the extra length.
Other Thoughts: I have had a few headsets in the past. My favorite was a $40 plantronics brand from best buy that lasted me for several years. I pwned many noobs in my 1.6 and CZ days with that headset. Over time the volume wheel caused the sound to short out which required I fiddle with it from time to time to make sure sound came out of both ears evenly.
That headset finally fell to my wrath and had to be replaced. It's been a few years since I had that one, but I definitely can tell this one is the best headset I've ever owned. the sound is very crisp and clear. Much easier to distinguish different sounds. Music and bass also very pleasing with this headset.
Good construction and quality feel.
Pros: Very big compared to the 17" Hanns G I upgraded from.
I was still impressed with it compared to the 21" AOC my wife is using.
Good, bright colors when calibrated correctly. Once I switched it to sRGB I only had to make minor adjustments to brightness and contrast to get a nice, crisp display.
Colors are much better than any other monitor I have owned before.
Cons: When using the premium setting for AMA it causes ghosting. I tried it out a few times and was not able to get over the level of ghosting produced on the premium setting. High setting is just fine.
Other Thoughts: I was disappointed to find out that this monitor only does 60 Hz at 1080. I thought it would do 75 Hz at 1080, but I'm ok with that. I should have researched it a bit further before making an assumption.
I mostly play CS:GO and this monitor has made a difference. I will eventually upgrade to a 120-144 capable monitor, but I can't really take full advantage of that now due to limitations with my video card.
Pros: This is the first time I can remember in years of shopping at newegg that i received an order in less than 7 calendar days. I got this one, I think, on the third day after ordering.
I envy all you who brag of receiving your orders in a day or two.
I got this to replace a MoBo that was crippled after a surge. Thankfully only the board needed replacing and it was completely painless.
Cons: IDK. Maybe could have been a bit bigger to allow for another pci slot, but I really don't need it so not much of a con.
Other Thoughts: The board is tiny. I knew it was micro atx, but it's about 2/3 the size of the micro atx board it replaced. I was just surprised. Makes my mid tower look huge on the inside. Less is more? No complaints here.READ FULL REVIEW
