This review is from: Rosewill 5.1-Channel Vibrating Gaming Headset- USB Connector - RHTS-8206
Pros: The sound. I have been using a set of Professional headphones for several years, and my backup was an old Plantronics gaming headset: both, I thought, were really good. This relatively inexpensive headset blow them away! Great sound positioning, bass can be as loud and enveloping as you want. For ~$40, really nice.
Cons: See comments in Other thoughts. No real 'Cons.'
Other Thoughts: They are not as good as the professional Sennheiser for music, but not bad (according to my hearing).
On my head and ears, they get a little uncomfortable after about 2 hrs., but that is a long time.
I did not install the provided software, but Windows audio panel can set them up as 7.1 speakers, just takes a little tinkering with the audio panel settings.
Pros: Stable, high quality, good CAS for 1.5V. If you are into it it overclocks. Using the XMS in two gaming multi/use and gaming computers, and have used the XMS in both DDR2 and DDR3 versions. Using their Vengeance in my gaming PC.
Cons: None really; just a reminder that EVERY manufacture has parts that occasionally fail, even Corsair.
Other Thoughts: Have used Corsair ram almost exclusively for several years now. Tried Patriot, and for a long time used Crucial; howerver both had problems that I have never encountered with Corsair.
Corsair customer service is excellent, but to be fair Crucial's is at least as good, but Patriots was just o.k.
Pros: The pros. that I had for this model are in my original review dated 4/9/12 and titled "can't go wrong."
At this time the only thing I can say is on the occasions when it works it works o.k.
Cons: I had two of these. Literally wore one out, and this was the second one. It was a little quirky from day one in that the tray, when the button was pushed, would come out quite fast and immediately go back in. Annoying but I lived with it. Lately, about 60-70% of the time it won't read disks, or starts to read the disc then stops, or will be reading the disk (music, movie, data, whatever) and about 1/2 way through will stop.
Tonight it simply shut down while reading data to be transfered to another disc, and locked up the PC again. Cold shut-down required.
Out of warranty, but that's o.k.
And I am not knocking ASUS; I will be ordering another DVD-RW and it will be either the the F model ASUS or a Lite-On: these are the two brands that OVERALL I have had the most reliability.
