Creative Sound Blaster Z PCIe 116dB SNR Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Beamforming Microphone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good quality part, The price is good considering there are comparable sound cards that are double the price. drivers got more stable in later releases, good quality sound. No bloatware!

Cons: The headset Mic input jack went out after a year. I didn't notice until I switched from my optical headset to my corded headset. The Red Led CANNOT be turned off and is rather annoying if your case has a different color scheme. I docked an egg for this and for the Mic input failed.

Other Thoughts: I tested the wired headset on my onboard sound and on my work laptop to ensure that it wasn't the headset. I also reinstalled the drivers and it was still bad. It was good while it lasted. I also keep my case free from excess dust on a bi-weekly basis. I ordered a HT Omega Eclaro for replacement, I had a striker 7.1 before this SB -Z that lasted 2 years and I was able to sell it via an online auction as it was still in awesome shape.. Better quality over creative in my opinion. Creative still has a good product..They just like to stop supporting their good products and their drivers are sometimes sketchy.

Syba FT-CPH61023 White Wall Charger For iPod, iPhone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Works as intended. 03/14/2014

This review is from: Syba FT-CPH61023 White Wall Charger For iPod, iPhone

Pros: I ordered 6 of these units, tested all 6 and they worked.

Cons: cheap quality, but they do the job. Just know that the price tag fits the product. They are a good backup, but I wouldn't use it as a main power cord, just a go-to cord if you have a friend or coworker that needs a charge and they forgot their cable.

Other Thoughts: I bought 6 of these for my companies disaster recovery tote. Just for backups, tested all 6 and they worked. I docked an egg because of the quality and they are a bit tough to unlatch from iPhones. You have to be careful and press firmly on release button. They work though, keep in mind these are a low-cost product.. so don't expect them to be top notch.

ASUS GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have tried my share of 600 series GTX cards, 670 and 680. Many of them either micro-stuttered a lot or had overheating issues. Finally, after my last RMA and refund I decided to give ASUS a shot. COOL running, Nice cosmetic appeal, back-plate supported by chassis to prevent sagging, NICE overclocking with GPU tweak and embedded GPU-Z within it. Great card. Wish I had found it sooner, I am thinking I will stick to ASUS or EVGA from now on for more than just motherboards.

Cons: Pricey

Other Thoughts: Stick to the brands that review sites as well as other users talk well of, people usually don't post reviews unless they feel it necessary, sometimes you also still GET what you pay for in GPU market.
