This review is from: JBL J88i Premium Over-Ear Headphones with Mic-Black
Pros: Packaged well.
Cons: Everything else. Read "Other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: Cannot use on my pc unless i keep pressing the orange button located on the cable regardless if I plug it onto my pc soundcard with built-in amplifier or not. I understand this headphone uses a different cable to control the volume and such but it's ridiculous that I can't even use a regular 3.5mm cable to correct the issue because the plug hole that's on the headset is much smaller and will not fit a regular 3.5mm cable. They should note that on the description that this is strictly not made for computer headphones. Very unhappy with JBL. They described this as "amazing clarity and deep, accurate JBL® Pure Bass". Sadly the bass on this headphone is non existent. The sound overall is just flat out embarrassing. Very comparable to other earbud headphones that comes free with your mp3 players. I can't believe this was actually retailed for 149. Shame on you JBL. My 5 yr old V-Moda Crossfade LP dominates this JBL J88i in every category.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A70F USB3.0 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: All I can say is WOW!! This huge full tower case replaced my old Antec Nine Hundred mid tower case and the difference was night and day. I can actually work on my rig now without having to squeeze my hand inside the case. This Lian Li case definitely seems quality made. This was my first Lian Li case. I was a bit concerned about the durability since it's made by aluminum but no problem here so far. Overall, I'm very happy with this case. Purchased it at almost half off after the promo code. Thanks newegg.
Cons: Not enough airflow. Definitely could use more fans on the top panel and maybe even the side panel. Wish this was a clear window side panel. I don't know why companies still bother with the solid window side panel when most buyers will prefer the clear window panel. I was hoping for it to be a much bigger case but coming from a mid tower case, I'm satisfied.
Other Thoughts: It didn't come with a hot girl inside the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Solid board when it comes to overclocking
-SLI and Crossfire Ready
Cons: -Not as pretty looking as the Sabertooth version.
-Covers PCI slot for soundcard when using 3-Way SLI (1 egg off)
-NOT CREATIVE X-FI CHIP!! (1 egg off) It's very misleading that Asus doesn't clarify the fact that this is not a Creative X-Fi Audio Chip. But they label it as is leading people like myself to think that this is an audio chip from Creative. WRONG!.. This is a Realtek chip that uses Realtek drivers but includes Creative X-Fi Utility Software to work together with the Realtek Chip. There's a reason why they put a sticker on the audio chipset to fool people into thinking this is a Creative X-Fi chip. I'm a big Asus fan but this was a major disappointment for me that they would go this low just to make some extra sales. I've tried the onboard audio from this board and it still sounds junk like any other Realtek Audio Chipset. I decided to put my old Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Chipset which sounds 50 times better.
