This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: Best overall headset I've had so far. Works great. Sounds great. Have not had complaints from others about the microphone. I never timed the battery to see if it lasts the full 10 hours, but it does last a long time. I've done 5 hour sessions, plus other later sessions before charging was needed. It will beep about ever 5 seconds or so when low. It will also keep working for a long time after the low battery beep starts, I gave up waiting for it to die after about a minute of it beeping and just plugged it in and kept using it.
It also plays VERY loud. It will rattle your head pretty good.
The volume roller on the headset is an awesome feature. You can turn the sound up and down very quickly and intuitively.
Headset is very comfortable to use. The ear padding is firm, but adapts to your head pretty quickly and does not exert any excess pressure anywhere. I should say I did change the ear padding, but not until after using the stock padding for a while so I could accurately comment on it. I had nicer ear pads left over from my old WoW headset that I broke and I use them now. They were the same size pads as the Corsair ones, but much softer and fake leather instead of cloth.
Also, the mic boom auto mutes when flipped up. It's a feature they don't advertise well.
The range is pretty far, but you're not gonna be going to the neighbor's house with it. I make it about 25 feet through 3 walls and around a big steel safe.
Cons: Not really cons, but my old WoW headset spoiled me. My old WoW head set came with a carrying bag, I now use it to carry this headset, transmitter, charge cable, and transmitter extension cable.
Also, my old WoW headset came with a USB plug dust cover for the transmitter. I use that cover to protect the USB plug on this transmitter now.
Also, while the Corsair ear pads were nice and comfortable, like I said in the pro section, I used my old WoW pads and put them on the Corsair headset.
I think voice sounded slightly better on my WoW headset, but I know this mic is waaaay better than my WoW mic.
Other Thoughts: I have not even tried their software. I didn't think of it until just now. I just plug it in and use it. I've read/heard good things about the software, but because I mostly use it for voice, I hadn't looked into it much.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Athena Power Cable-M84M84F 8" Extension & Conversion Four-In-One
Pros: It extends my power cable. It looks good.
Cons: Its a 4 pin x2 connector, I used it as an 8 pin x1. It does take a small amount of finesse and mechanical aptitude to plug it in correctly. However, it is not any more difficult than most any power supply that uses multipurpose connectors like this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: Works as intended. Mine came with SSD mounting screws X 8 and tray mounting screws X 4
I installed 2 SSD's per bracket with no problems, well, except one problem I'll mention below.
Cons: This could be a con of the bracket, or a con of my power supply. My power connectors have the wires coming off of the plug @ 90 degrees. I had to notch out part of the bracket to clear these wires for the SSD closest to the bottom of the mounting adapter. Not a big deal to me.READ FULL REVIEW
