Pros: The USB Dongle actually let them produce acceptable sound. Excellent deal (WOW! $59!!)
Newegg shipping was, again, the best I have ever used/encountered in my long life.
Cons: Using the 3.5 connections I had to turn up the in-line Plantronics volume to Max to get enough volume AND my on-board sound to about 90%.
Sound was NOT as good at any volume as my old Sennheiser HD280's nor my old Plantronics DSP500s.
The Big One (CON) was that the microphone could not be made to work properly or with any volume nor consistent volume: Didn't matter what the settings were on my PC nor in Steam Chat, nor in game (where no one could hear me if there was any kind of action) Nor whether I used the USB Dongle or plugged directly into my PC microphone connection. Plantronics support, though friendly, was no help. I spent about 3 hours (a little yesterday 7/19, and about 2 1/2 hours today trying to get it to work: I was assisted by a friend locally with whom I communicated and he was able to tell me how (terrible) the sound was.
Oh yeah, my grandson tried them, just with audio, no microphone, and told me his 306's or 355's (can't remember which) sounded better!
Other Thoughts: A pity. Good looking, should have been killer sound and performance. Top rated by MaximumPC. A waste of my time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Used this for my grandson's build over a year ago. Found it easy to work in (no, not as easy as a full tower, but still easy). Good airflow. I had no problems with cable routing/storage, and didn't expect extra room for perfect routing. Have recommended this case to probably two dozen people - in person and on forums - who wanted a nice inexpensive case.
This will be the case I will use to build a new PC for my business classroom (though I will probably go with the 3.0 version)
It looks really sharp and pretty, too.
Cons: I don't have any. See 'other thoughts' (Hey Newegg! Please check it out.)
Other Thoughts: After initial build found the power button missing. Called Newegg a couple days later when we couldn't locate the button and they sent me a complete front panel, no charge and no return necessary. Wow! The day it arrived, bofore opening, the power button fell out of ???? in the case and I reinstalled it and it has worked fine since.
Newegg! Do you want the replacement panel back?? I would be more then happy to return it at my cost. It's still in the original shipping boxl
You guys are still the best! keep up the great work.
Pros: Very customizable. Once set up it was the best feeling and most comfortable mouse I have ever used. So nice that my wife wanted one immediately after I got mine.
Cons: Did NOT buy this at Newegg. DID read the reviews here, but bought it anyway to try.
Wife's lasted about 6 months before it started tracking weirdly and locking up the PC. Unplugging/replugging in, reinstalling hardware, using Windows generic drivers -nothing helped. Returned to store, back to Logitech.
Mine lasted until about 2 weeks ago (not quite 1 year), then started 'flipping out' while gaming; I knew about lifting it from the mat and having weird things happen, but it started doing those weird things every time I moved to the left: Not good in an FPS game nor when working within Excel docs.
Also, the feet were worn out. I put on Teflon tape designed for mouse feet and that helped.
My local retailer was good enough to take it back and give me a store credit.
Other Thoughts: I Realllly liked that mouse, but I have Logitech mice that are 5-7 years old and are still working great. For what the RAT cost, it should have lasted a loooonnnng time. bummer.
To all of you who have one of these and it is working, I hope it continues to do so and lasts a long time. While it worked it was really nice.
