This review is from: NZXT FS-200RB-BLED 200mm SILENT Blue LED Fan with ON/OFF Switch
Pros: I have no idea... It's probably a good fan.. if you have an NZXT case.
Cons: see other thoughts
Other Thoughts: Buyer beware:
This fan is NOT compatible with non-NZXT cases. It does NOT conform to standard 200mm mounting specifications - the screw tabs are about 1/2 a cm too short on all 4 sides. Meaning I can screw ONE screw in... and NONE of the others will line up, so I CANNOT mount it in my Corsair 600T.
This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller
Pros: Looks pretty, while it lasts.
Cons: Where do I begin?
-Obnoxious beeping noise every 3 minutes on auto mode. The only way I could stop it was BOTH switching to manual -AND- setting temp alarm off.
-Buttons don't light up - good luck not pressing restart in darkness.
This review is from: CM Storm Sirus - True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Control Module
Pros: -Extremely comfortable, very big (good if you have a big head)
-Build quality is very high all around.
-Decent, but not outstanding bass response.
-The tactical puck is a very sexy and highly functional piece of hardware sitting on your desk, but read "other thoughts" regarding it's major flaw.
-Microphone is extremely high quality, and performs very well. My friends say I sound way better then when I was using my desktop Mic.
-I'm a competitive FPS gamer. Positional accuracy is important to me, which is why I wanted to try these headphones out. It is decent with these phones, but performance is inconsistent, and varies depending on the game. Truth be told, there are better performers out there in this price range. I'm talking about higher end stereo headphones with virtual surround sound.
-No documentation AT ALL for the 3.5mm jacks (for connecting to a 5.1+ sound card). Which colors correspond to which speakers (front, center, rear, sub)? I don't know! I e-mailed CoolerMaster support regarding this issue and here is the response I got:
"Hi, sir, it is USB device, plug to USB port, so, it do not have 3.5mm jacks. Thanks!"
Shameful and pathetic. They don't seem to know anything about the product they are supposed to be supporting.
-Value: The "tactical puck" can only be connected via USB, not through your sound card. See other thoughts:
Other Thoughts: Regarding value, a chunk that $130 price tag is paying the tactical puck. This is a seriously flawed design in that it can ONLY be hooked up through USB, using it's own built-in sound drivers. This means greatly reduced sound quality as compared to a headset which is connected via a dedicated high-end sound card. We should NOT have to choose between getting the best sound quality and using the beautiful and functional piece of hardware that we're paying for (the puck). CM needs to either redesign this product to allow the tactical puck to connect via normal 3.5mm jacks in addition to USB, or they need to release a lower-priced version ($70-80) that excludes the tactical puck entirely, for those of us who want to use our high-end dedicated sound cards.READ FULL REVIEW
