Corsair Raptor H5 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've been using this headset as my main headset for a couple of months now and I'm surprised by the level of the quality of the headset. The quality of the audio is a major plus for this headset and the volume control is quite easy and convenient. The headset itself is extremely comfortable and does not cause any discomfort at all, even after long use sessions of 4+ hours.

Cons: Microphone level is extremely quiet out of the box. I had to boost the audio levels anywhere from 20-30 db in order for whatever was being spoken to be audible. Tested it in programs like TeamSpeak3/Steam and, with the boost, the microphone was offering pretty good quality. Just make sure that the program you want to use has noise cancellation as an option or it is built-in because obviously with the boost you can get a lot of background noise.

Other Thoughts: I took a gamble on this headset as it was on-sale for $40 with a $30 mail-in rebate. Corsair processed the rebate extremely fast (within 1 month turnaround for those interested). I've been using it via 3.5mm, not by the USB adapter, and I've been using their drivers which you can get from their website for Windows 7 x64. Needless to say, my expectations going into this purchase were quite low (especially given the poor reviews on here) but after this experience, I would definitely buy a Corsair headset again and actually I'd probably prefer it at this point.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Getting 2x 8GB. Reliable.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Just be aware you might have to set it manually to 1600 because it wanted to run it at 1333 on my ASUS P8P67 LE. That's about it. Not really a "con."

ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

5 out of 5 eggs Newegg reviews are fantastic 07/03/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Fairly quiet even on full speed. Seems to push a great deal of air. Extremely well made.

Cons: Has a short USB cord? That's about all I can come up with.

Other Thoughts: Have yet to receive the $10 rebate but at this point I don't really care. Trust the reviewers, it's well worth the $50 if you're in the market for a notebook cooler.
