ROCCAT KAVE 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs one of the best 04/11/2014

This review is from: ROCCAT KAVE 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

Pros: * high quality
* good 5.1 positional audio (FPS titles)
* adequate bass
* comfortable for long play (once fitted)
* good mic

Cons: * fit - needed to add extra padding to headband
once done headset was very comfortable for extended play.
* after two years leather covering earcups disintegrating .
foam pads still intact. comfort unaffected.

Other Thoughts: have tried MANY 5.1 headsets...
all were garbage audio or very poor quality.
ALL previous 5.1 headsets were broken within a year.
This one outlasted them substantially.... still working well.
looking forward to the "Kave XTD Analog".

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: good processor
plenty of ram
large drive
nice screen
brushed aluminum finish

Cons: Windows 8 - minus one egg.
designed for touch screens, tablets, and phones...
NOT keyboard or mouse friendly.
switched bios to 'legacy' then installed Win 7 x64 Ultimate...
MUCH better! :)

Other Thoughts: actually got this for my mom.
she loves it!
several friends have since asked for one too.

great lap top for the money!

Thermaltake SMART M Series SP-850M 850W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Powerful
* Modular
* High Quality Construction
* Flat Modular Cables
* Compact Size

Cons: * Not Silent. Audible. Can get loud when gaming.
* UGLY decals... truly painful to look at :p

Other Thoughts: need a power supply for a friend.
Personally only purchase Corsair AX series.
they are the best. period. have owned 6 total.
passed down to friends over the years as i upgraded.
Each is still going strong.

Friend had an Ultra X3 1000watt that died
he wanted something quick.
Best buy was our only local option for 'same day' acquisition.
(yes, friend was unwilling to wait for shipping)

This Thermaltake 850 is powerful, modular, high quality construction.
good reviews on Best Buy and Newegg.
Very capable unit that is well designed... EXCEPT...
My only complaint is noise level.
the fan is never truly silent. always audible.
during gaming the unit gets loud if stressed.
Currently loudest component in case.
Of my personal 6 Corsair AX units never heard one... ever.
Even when running SLI and Crossfire.

This unit gets the job done and makes few compromises.
Just be aware the fan is audible...
oh, and the decals are UGLY! :p

Worth the asking price at Best Buy... BUT...
here on newegg would spend a little extra and get the AX750 instead.
