Pros: After a year or more it still works and has never seemed to be anything less than fully functional.
Cons: It doesn't have any big capacitors, but apparently it doesn't need them either.
Other Thoughts: Wireless devices that work reliably for a long time are much better than those that do not, in my humble opinion.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SABRENT EC-UST25 Aluminum 2.5" USB2.0 to SATA External Enclosure
Pros: It works well, it's attractive looking, it came with everything necessary except of course for the disk. It's got an aluminum chassis/hood to help cool things more quickly.
Cons: I was a bit turned off by the way it required me to drive metal screws through a piece of plastic that didn't have a hole yet for the screw. Probably there's a limited number of times a guy could change disks in there before the plastic and/or screws become dysfunctional.
I believe that it does require more power than some of the other comparable items of this time.
Other Thoughts: I can't say for sure, because I've only tried using one HD in it and haven't experimented with other disks, but I think this thing needs both USB plugs to be delivering power more often than other items of this type that I have experience with. I think the others are fine with only the 5 watts (1A) from using just one USB port.
This one often needs more power or it will perform some noisy actions if it's only getting power from one port or plug. Even when it has enough juice, it seems like it might be radiating a little more heat than I'd expect.
Like I said I can't be 100% sure about this judgement, and if I could be then my rating would be less approving.
Anyway, I'm still glad I have it, and I'm happy that I can use the 500 GB disk that I have in it, in it. I have to be conscious about plugs and ports, but it sure does get put to use!
This review is from: HIS Stereo Headphone with Microphone
Pros: Very clear sound comes out of the drivers which are very efficient speakers. It's lightweight and quite compact, so it doesn't get in the way. The around-the-back-of-the-head style is great. The size of the speakers is much larger than I would've expected in such a small headset. The fabric jacket over the cord is a nice touch, as are the controls (volume/mute/etc.)
Cons: I expected them to do more bass output, considering how pretty they are and how loud they are and how ideal they seem to be in all other ways.
Other Thoughts: Maybe I'm being too picky when I give them -1 egg for not having very good bass response, after all I do use them for my main microphone headset on my main PC.
Probably I could just use an equalizer effect on the audio output to compensate for what seems like a bias towards mid and high-frequencies. On the other hand, if that's all it takes, then TEAC should have just built it in to the thing themselves.
From the appearance and the specs, I expected better bass, but then again I wouldn't want them to be much heavier or bulkier. The lightness and compactness are very appealing, like I said.
They probably deserve a full 5-eggs rating for being so great for every purpose except the audiophile bass-fanatic's music listening. I think if they could allow for a bit more excursion, if the drivers could move just a little farther and kick out bass that was a little deeper and louder, then That would be the Perfect lightweight headset!
And yes I DO wear them on my head -- no I'm not expecting them to create bass that I can hear from a distance or anything like that, just a little bit of it for the ears.
