Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs There are better headsets for the $$$. 04/14/2014

This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: Programmable G-keys let you push-to-talk while away from computer.

Charges while in-use

Red LED on mic boom indicates muted

Virtual surround sound is good (but there's free virtual surround for all headphones from RAZER)

Sound quality is passable (with some EQ tweaks)

Cons: HEAVY! Because it's so heavy it needs more padding in top band. What's there won't last. Earphones swivel so you can't pick them up without it flopping around like a fish in your hands. They're so heavy it feels like you'll break them by picking them up by the earphones. Poor reliability - my first set went bonkers and wouldn't charge. Many people had this problem on forums. Software virtual surround screws up on some mono sources like TeamSpeak (Mumble positional audio only comes out of right earphone). Mic input is a bit low (it won't distort but it may be too quiet) - some software will auto-set your mic to max input (i.e. Skype)

Other Thoughts: I own Plantronics 995 for seven years now. Still works but batt needs to be replaced and I have to tear it apart to do it. It doesn't charge while in-use and has no programmable buttons for ptt so it's not good enough for me.

Find another headset that has PTT buttons, charges in-use, LED on mic boom, mutes on boom up, doesn't have swivel earphones, and weighs less.

ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Lousy aftermarket support 10/28/2012

This review is from: ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: tri-SLI, Triple channel RAM, easy overclocking, auto-resets to defaults after failed overclocking attempt

Cons: First: The drivers that came on CD and the drivers on the web site never worked for the X-Fi sound. The Creative Labs software said it couldn't find a supported chip. Asus support said I could RMA the board back. Okay, big disappointment but I'm not taking a working motherboard out of my best PC to replace on-board sound. They probably knew that was a problem with a whole bunch of version 1.xx owners. I bought an aftermarket Sound Blaster Extreme.

Second: Huge!!! Can't use a >2TB HD for your Windows 7 operating system. Windows 7 64 bit has no problem formatting my 3TB drive as GPT partition but you can't boot from it because they never added UEFI to the BIOS. It could have and should have been done, but the didn't. I'm sure it was to drive people to upgrade to their newer Rampage IV boards. I paid a whole lot of money for this high-end board and it should have received better aftermarket support. Their were other boards at the time of my purchase that had UEFI but I didn't know to look for it and had been an Asus Fan-boy for 20 years. NO MORE! Gigabyte, here I come!!!

Other Thoughts: I've owned Asus products since the early 90's when they were an up and coming generic like Samsung used to be as well. I think my P2B-N with an overclocked Celeron is still running in a relatives garage. Their quality and support has dwindled over the decades and I have had the last straw.

Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs What a great deal! 04/21/2006

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

Pros: The PSU is from a great PSU manufacturer. It's pretty quiet. It actually is a 430 watt PS (not like bad ones that ship with case). The cables are braided in black nylon and won't get cut. The black color looks great in my case.

Cons: You could get quieter power supplies with larger fans at slower RPM.
