Plantronics RIG Flex Gaming Headset For Mobile Devices and PC, Mac - Brown Box Version
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Very comfortable with decent sound quality, needs a few refinements. 09/27/2016

This review is from: Plantronics RIG Flex Gaming Headset For Mobile Devices and PC, Mac - Brown Box Version

Pros: Right out of the box I can say that it seems to be of pretty good build quality. It's fairly lightweight , which is a good thing for long sessions. I love that they are cloth ear cups not fake leather! Good call Plantronics! Much less heat build up. The sound quality is what I would say is middle of the road leaning toward good. There is plenty of Bass for gaming but still well rounded enough to listen to music. I do like the idea of the detachable/swappable boom mic for an inline mic which is a pretty unique feature. If Plantronics sells replacement parts it would be very handy to be able to replace just the mic if it ever stopped working. I also like the flat cable vs a round rubber or braided cable. It's very pliable and has less ability to tangle. I do wish however it was a little longer. If your PC plugin is more than 3 feet away there isn't much slack. The boom mic seems to pick up voice and cancel noise properly at a medium speaking volume as well. More about the Mic in the 'Cons'.. All in all for only $20 during a Shell Shocker deal I am very satisfied.

Cons: -Short Cable
-Boom mic will not hold a curved shape. It is fixed in a straight forward position.
-The adjustable head band moves almost too easily. No defined "click" into place.

I would really like to see them come out with a better boom mic solution. I don't like the fact that it's not adjustable and I simply have to talk louder because it wont curve closer to my mouth. I also would like to see some stiffer resistance on the over the head adjustment band. It just moves to easily.

Other Thoughts: I also got these during a Shell Shocker deal like the reviewer before me. It's been many years since i've purchased a Plantronics headset but my very old basic one is still kicking so I suppose that says something about Plantronics quality.. Or at least how it used to be. I think at its normal price of $39.99 there are a lot of great options. But for only $20 during the Shell Shocker deal I could not pass it up.

Thermaltake Core P3 Snow ATX Open Frame Panoramic Viewing Tt LCS Certified Gaming Computer Case CA-1G4-00M6WN-00
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Great Layout, Terrible PCI-E Riser Card, AGAIN! 08/31/2016

This review is from: Thermaltake Core P3 Snow ATX Open Frame Panoramic Viewing Tt LCS Certified Gaming Computer Case CA-1G4-00M6WN-00

Pros: Great open, unique design. Much lighter and noticeably smaller than my Core P5. The metal is thick and has a reinforced frame inside the back panel for VESA mounting. Lots of room for cable management back there as well. Unlike the Core P5, you WILL be able to use your All in One liquid coolers with the standard 12' hoses as they will easily stretch over to the radiator/fan mounting on the right side of the case.

Cons: Again, Thermaltake is bundling their garbage PCI-E Riser cards with this case. The one that came with my Core P5 died within a month and this one was DOA. I strongly encourage anyone buying this not to get your hopes up about mounting your GPU upright with that riser card. Why Thermaltake thinks its acceptable to continue to include these with the Core P5 and Core P3 is unacceptably irresponsible considering all the negative feedback on numerous sites. I had to hastle calling and emailing them last time around to slow responses and dont plan on bothering again. I will order a different aftermarket one somewhere else.

Other Thoughts: Its a cool looking case. Great cable management, nice tempered glass etc.. But Thermaltake, do your loyal customers a solid and get some quality PCI-E Riser Cards to go with these cases. You aren't making any new friends.


Pros: Very low temps under load and almost completely silent! With the latest Windows 10 updates its outpacing the GTX 980ti in most games for less money (got it on sale for $379). Awesome build quality. This drives my 2560 x 1080p Freesync monitor with ease. I usually have to lock my frame rates in most games to keep it under 75Hz to take advantage of Freesync.. Thats a good thing :)

Cons: My only complaint is the thickness of the Radiator. I was not able to fit it in the top/rear fan slot in my Thermaltake X31 case. It's too big and interferes with my MOBO I/O shroud. Had to rig it up to fit in a bottom fan slot which isn't ideal but it seems to work fine.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an R9 390X after gifting it to friend. The Fury X is only about 10% faster so if you are thinking of that specific upgrade, I would not recommend it. However if you have anything older like a R9 200 series it would be a noticeable improvement.
