TekNmotion Yapster Plus 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Headset! 04/25/2014

This review is from: TekNmotion Yapster Plus 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: Great sound quality. Cheap. Does the job. Quick disconnect feature is a GODSEND. Good job here guys! I can actually use this as a headset for my phones (at home. I'm not wearing this in public. I'm not a complete goober)and it sounds amazing!

Cons: Ear cups are on the small side. I haven't really found any that are large, though so I suppose this isn't a deal breaker. The material on the ear cups is leathery, so don't expect great sweat dissipation like you'd find in higher quality headsets. In comparison to the Turtle Beach X12 (since TekNMotion uses many of TB's designs), the "arms" of the headset are on the flimsy side. I keep waiting for someone to make a quality METAL headset so these things don't snap on people with bigger heads. On the other hand, the TBX12 is also flimsy and they generally run 15 bucks more so you be the judge. The adjustable mic feels a little flimsy, but it hasn't broken off yet and the mic still works great even after a month of abuse.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is an excellent headset. It's a decent buy at 30 bucks. I've been a fan of TekNMotion since the original Yapster, which lasted me a record 10 months and only cost 20 bucks. Compared to the TBX12 which lasted me around 8 months and various Logitech products which tend to last about 2 months and I'd say TekNMotion is the winner. Only time will tell if this headset lasts that long, but I will say if it does, TNM has a repeat customer on their hands.

WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent drive. Low noise. Installation was a snap into an old Acer that had one of the thousands of WD Blue drives that FAIL miserably in it. Black series is rock solid though. Would buy again.

Cons: Price per gigabyte. This should be going down as SSD prices are going down. Either way, it's still a good drive and a decent deal, but these should be $50.00, not $80.00

Other Thoughts: The price per gigabyte is fluctuating so wildly on traditional hard drives yet the price per gig of an SSD seems to be going down drastically. It might be worth it to wait another year to upgrade to an SSD unless you have a worthless WD Blue drive in your laptop and NEED a drive right now.

VisionTek 900292 Radeon HD 3450 512MB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Ive had 2 of these, one in my wife's pc and one in mine for over 2 years. Not raided or anything fancy, just used as a regular hard disk with windows vista and 7 on them. Have had no issues whatsoever out of them. Excellent drives.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Some people will try to make you believe these drives are only for use in RAID arrays. This may be their intended purpose, but they work just fine for every day use. Don't believe everything that you read on the internets by people claiming to have over the top tech knowledge. Most people claiming they have programming level tech knowledge are liars and had no idea what they were doing nor had any business attempting to build their own pc. Take some of these reviews with a grain of salt.
