Pros: - SSD is reasonably priced along with other brands of SSD's.
- 3 Year Warranty is pretty good from a reputable company.
Installed this along with a fresh copy of Windows 10 into my HTPC and have had no issues for the past month or so. From boot to home screen is about 7 seconds for me! Newegg's speed ratings are different from SP's actual rating and the speeds I got are closer to what SP is saying which was around 520-537MB/s Read and 490-501MB/s Write. That's impressive but nothing surprising since SSD's with this interface (SATA 3) aren't going to get much faster than that, they've pretty much capped out.
In terms of longevity it's still a mystery since I haven't had it long enough to write my expereience on how it's going to be in the next 2-3 years. For me I personally don't upgrade SSD's unless they die and hopefully this thing never does that, or at least for a very long time. For the price and performance you get (same as other SSD's) I say this is a great alternative to other higher priced SSD's.
Cons: Packaging is meh.. No protection from it's own packaging but was shipped inside a box with other material so it shouldn't be an issue.
Firmware needed to be updated but no big issue.
Other Thoughts: Easily recommend this to anyone on a budget. The SSD marketplace is cramped and the amount of different types are abundant so choosing one may be hard but I think it's easy to say we have a solid SSD here for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nothing short from Corsair. Power supply booted up on first try, no funky smell, no coil whine, no problems what so ever!
I am currently powering the following rig.
EVGA GTX 1070
2 x 250GB SSD
650W for around $69 is quite good comparing the jump from that to a 750W or so. I see no point in needing anymore juice for a single card rig. Packaging is top notch and I love the sleek look of this PSU. Sticker on it is black and silver so it doesn't pop out for anyone who does not have a power supply cover. Modular design is a plus, all cords are sleeved and construction overall feels solid!
Cons: None, it worked and has been powering my system for over a month or so now. Corsair warranty is also second to none in my book.
Other Thoughts: If $60-70 is your price range for a budget power supply, definitely consider this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset
Pros: To begin with the pros, the packaging on this headset was above average and it was a delight to unbox. Instructions are easy to understand and setup on the headset and the receiver was also a breeze. I had everything hooked up and was able to get sound out of em within 10-15 minutes.
The material that goes around your ears are comfortable and have had no issues with wearing these for a few hours. Sound is punchy and everything from mid to highs are well balanced. Nothing sounds mushy or off. Sure they aren't the greatest but I have used far worse wireless headsets.
Battery life on these far surpassed my expectations and on top of that you get TWO, yes TWO batteries NOT ONE! This was well though out by Steel Series. Instead of waiting for the battery to recharge and be able to use the headset again, all you need to do is swap out the batteries and you're good to go again. I love it when more than one battery is included with any electronic item that uses a battery. That means less money spent afterwards for more batteries.
I'm not a big fan of virtual surround sound but this headset does offer it and from my personal testing the results are fair. Nothing beats a true 7.1 surround sound and headsets in my opinion will never achieve that.
Over all the headset far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a -$300 wireless gaming headset.
Cons: Only a few issues I ran into.
First was that I was getting some delay with audio. Whatever I was watching was ahead of the audio. The problem soon went away and has never returned. Maybe some sort of interference?
I did drop connecting a few times but again have not had any issues what so ever afterwards.
Other Thoughts: Other than the somewhat steep price tag, the headset is definitely worth the money.
It has dropped since the last time I saw it and at the price it is currently at it's even a better buy now. Overall I am quite happy with it, the sound, the quality and overall construction of the headset. Seems like I will be using this for as long as it lives!
