Creative 70GH014000002 3.5mm / USB2.0 Connector Circumaural Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent Product, but Consider Your Competition! 08/27/2012

This review is from: Creative 70GH014000002 3.5mm / USB2.0 Connector Circumaural Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma Headset

Pros: - 3.5mm jacks. VERY IMPORTANT. Read "Other Thoughts."

- Steel band gives confidence in overall fitting of headset, I broke 2 Plantronics' headset bands (don't get me wrong I still love their products) because my head is kinda too big I guess.

- Pleather feels absolutely fantastic, and even better so when worn in a little.

-50mm drivers give excellent bass, but clarity gets hurt a bit especially on instrumental songs. Definitely want to use a sound card with 3.5mm's plugged if you're more music oriented.

-Overall sound quality is excellent, especially with my Xonar DGX.

Cons: - Flimsy ribbon cable. I taped my wire halfway up under my keyboard drawer just to be safe from chair leg crushing it or pulling it out.

- Mini pop filter over mic comes off more easily... considering to glue it down, lol!

- Wouldn't have minded if cable was maybe 1ft. or 2ft. longer. Still sufficiently long though.

Other Thoughts: I'm a gamer who cares about sound (I've been spoiled by an X-Fi Xtremegamer for years and immediately hear differences in Realtek), but not as much as an audiophile to get a seperate headPHONE and standalone microhpone then you're in a pretty small niche category nowaways. Getting a USB headset renders your sound card useless, yet that's where most of the mainstream headset market is nowadays, which sucks.

If Creative just addressed all this quality issues, this is a winning product. There are only a few competing headsets left in the ~$60-80 range with this sound quality, headset convenience, USING 3.5MM jacks and I'm glad Creative is a maker of one of them.

I personally haven't had any problems with the microphone, I read the issues that people had with it and swore I'd just jam the microphone in as tightly as I could and would NOT use the USB card (just to eliminate any possible backfires). So far, no issues with mic.

Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Maru2 140 series SM1425SL12L 140mm Case Fan
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Quiet, Decent CFM, Excellent Build Quality 01/23/2011

This review is from: Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Maru2 140 series SM1425SL12L 140mm Case Fan

Pros: +VERY Quiet
+Decent CFM/DBa produced Ratio
+Fits easily
+No flashy LEDs

Cons: -Does not run well with a fan controller/hooked up to the mobo

Other Thoughts: The reviewer who gave this 1 egg obviously didn't know what to do with this case fan. It should not be hooked up to any fan controller or the motherboard, it should just be hooked up to a PSU's molex connector and let it run 100%. Even at 100% it is still very, very quiet.
