Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Worth it~ 05/15/2015

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset

Pros: -Really amazing sound quality.
-Flawless playback up to 7-12 ft away.
-Comfy on the head.
-Their warranty department replaced it after moving internationally.

Cons: -The charging cable breaks too frequently.
-The plastic frame holding the ear pieces on breaks too easily.

Other Thoughts: Its a really great headset overall and the warranty replacing the headset is great also. Despite buying it in the US the European Corsair team replaced it after the plastic broke the first time and gave me another year extended warranty.

The sound quality is flawless from all around our house and we use the headset to make lets play videos with near flawless audio quality.

ASUS ENGTX590/3DIS/3GD5 GeForce GTX 590 (Fermi) 3GB 768-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It did what it said, it continued to work and pump out some serious graphics. I was able to play Grand Theft Auto V with it (GTAV) and it handled it no problem at all.

It is capable of playing a lot of the more modern titles without any issues at all.

Cons: -It stopped working a day after the warranty expired..

-Horrendous overheating issue even with proper cooling.

-Needs new thermal paste a few months after use.

-Upon replacing thermal paste the heat-sink had damage marks on it from the assembly line.

-Easily bricked upon a firmware update to prevent meltdowns.

-Memory clock is unstable at default and underclocking makes it more stable. (A degree of knowledge is needed to actually make it stable.)

- It is a power hog.

- Finding a water cooling block for it is near impossible.

- Did I mention overheating issue? It idled at 136-142F with proper ventilation.

Other Thoughts: Wait a few months before you buy a graphics card or motherboard online. Never go for the newest model that just comes out. I bought my two GTX 590's upon their release and I ended up regretting it.

Despite the overheating issue being in every GTX590 the ASUS ones I have had have more serious issues that I doubt the company will take the time to look into,

Wait a few months and watch the market before you make any purchases. You will end up saving a lot of money if you do and not stressing about the quality of the parts.

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It worked for a few months.

Cons: It constantly was detecting that I plugged a Mic / Speaker in.
Then it caught fire, yes dead serious the motherboard caught fire.
I didn't even overclock with the motherboard, and it caught fire.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it at all.
I sent it to ASUS for repairs wrapped in 2inchs of bubble wrap.
After contacting ASUS cause my RMA number no longer pulled open my case online they said it was in repair already and will be done soon.

I contact them again after two day's and they said it was damaged in shipping and cause of that it is now no longer under warranty and I need to pay $147 to get it repaired.

Would have been nice if they told me two days before when I contacted the company, Decided to pull ASUS up on the better Business bureau only to find out the company has
"shady repair policy's, with a total of 861 issues regarding the company's repairs on products purchased"

I asked for a Manager regarding the issue they won't even put one of the phone to talk to me, they continued to promptly tell me I need to pay the $147, and nothing else at one point the employee proceeded to ignore me cause I said I want to speak to a manager.

Don't waste your money buy a Gigabyte Motherboard
