This review is from: ASUS USB 2.0 Black External Slim CD/DVD Writer Model SDRW-08D2S-U
Pros: Free shipping and yet it arrives the very next day? Sign me up!
Plugged into my wife's new laptop and was immediately recognized w/o the software that accompanied it (laptop is running windows 8). The price was a bit more than some cheaper options but there's a reason this model is getting the reviews it is.. you wont go wrong picking it up if you find yourself in need of a CD-ROM. I'm not even sure we will ever utilize the DVD writing capabilities but regardless, I'm very happy with the purchase.
Cons: None yet - but it has only been a week. So far no complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
Pros: The package arrived in good condition. Things went downhill almost immediately after opening it though. See "Cons" for more.
Cons: The headset itself feels flimsy and cheap. I've bought headsets in a similar price range and have found them to be much sturdier. Both the microphone/sound wires are intermingled into one very thin and flimsy cord. The microphone was DOA so I cannot comment on how good or bad that is. Upon plugging it in I could immediately detect a drop in sound quality from my 4 year old Steelseries Siberias that only cost me a fraction more at the time (another sale). To put things in perspective I typically leave my windows volume and gaming volume around mid-level but even after turning them both to max I still heard less with this Fatality headset than I did with that particular set. I'd even place this below my even older set of Everglides that have begun to dry rot due to nearly being a decade old.
Overall I'm very dissatisfied and have opened an RMA to return them.
Other Thoughts: I would guess for the price a gamer who has never owned a mid or high level headset would probably not have issues with these but honestly.. I would suggest spending an extra 15 or 20 dollars on a better performing set. This was my first and most likely last Creative product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Optical Mouse pad
Pros: The following is based on experiences while using a Logitech MX518 (1800 dpi)
Very, very smooth and accurate tracking.
Plenty of space but not to the point it's obnoxious.
Cons: I wish they were more durable; they insist washing them extends their lives but once the pad wears down and I attempt to restore a bit of life into it by washing it I found its performance to be the same. I play A LOT of qlive and urban terror so I abuse my mice/mousepads a bit more than average users (my opinion). If I'm lucky I can get a good 4 months out of it, and that's only by rotating the pad so I make use of as much of it as I can.
My only real issue outside the durability, which really isn't a huge issue since it's only $15 most of the time, is the fact you cannot really utilize the corner where the logo is on the pad. The mouse doesn't like tracking over that part and it's not nearly as smooth as the rest of the pad (this is normal for most pads but I still don't like it :p).
Other Thoughts: Nice pad, I strongly suggest this for gamers - especially if you are using an optical mouse of any brand.READ FULL REVIEW
