This review is from: Philips SHP9500 Over-Ear Headphone Exclusive - Black
Pros: These headphones really keep blowing me away! Bass is balanced, sound-stage is very open while keeping control over the mids and highs. Super lightweight, and since I use them for both music and gaming, they are about as good as it gets for this price without going to higher-end Sennheiser or Beyerdynamic. I have a set of DT 770's and they are awesome, but not NEARLY as comfortable as these SHP9500's. I saw them on MassDrop about a month ago for about $100 and almost got them then.... Glad I did't as with the sale I and many others picked these up on NewEgg for $50.
Cons: None... how can you for $50...?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very nice case and great quality for a sub $40 case. The layout is perfect and the chassis really light. All black paint inside and out looks super nice once the build is complete.
Cons: Some issues:
1. Piece of paper stuck where the motherboard mounts that got painted over at the factory. However, the motherboard covers this.
2. Not wide enough for the ever popular Cooler Master Hyper 212. Only 3mm more width would just fit this amazing and favorite CPU cooler.
3. FINGER PRINTS... lol... this is just the paint they use. Not a huge deal, but annoying when moving it around.
Other Thoughts: Slapped a mini-ITX board in this case with an i3 - 4370. Sadly had to use the stock cooler because I didn't' have time to order a different one.
Other than that, building in this case was an easy experience.
Pros: Looked great in my case and they were fast when they worked..
Cons: Yup... one of em died and the other is now blue screening like a champ...
Other Thoughts: Bought 2 of these to run in RAID0. They ran for a month... that was that.
Should have known better than to buy refurbs trying to get as much as I could for a $3000+ x79 build.
Also had a NEW OCZ 1000w power supply die... and a Swiftech AIO water cooler die on the new rig too.
I have to say that this is the first time I have EVER in 15 years of building had this many duds from one retailer on a single build, yet I stay loyal...
I have been buying from Newegg for over 10 years through my business for personal and this is very disappointing.
Actually at this point I'm fairly enraged by all the wasted time... we are talking almost 100 man hours in build time, for troubleshooting, repairs, phone calls from vendors asking me up change my reviews if they take care of me. Not to mention the waiting on replacements and I'm just stupid enough to purchase something new so I don't have to wait and just sell the refurb I get from the manufacturer.
Newegg is too big to care anymore so we are dumped off to the manufacturer.
Hopefully Corsair will make a quicker turnaround for me this time on these drives since I now have their DomiGT, 650D, K70, H100 (should have stayed with that), these broken refurbs and a V2000 7.1 wireless headset.
It's not like I didn't try to get the best... :\
