Pros: Setup was a breeze and the adapter feels very substantial and well built due to the heat sink.
Noticeably improved signal strength for my PC vs a 2 antenna single band wireless adapter I had been using. I share Wi-Fi with 3 people and up to 10 devices, using the 5GHz band has seemed to improve dropping of connection on the older devices.
Cons: Still not as fast as gigabit ethernet. However I rarely transfer files on my home network and so the speed potential of either is well beyond that of my internet connection
Other Thoughts: If you cannot or do not want to use wired ethernet this is probably the best wireless speed you can get.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful design
Bright and sharp text
Blur free motion when set to 120Hz
As quick as any LCD I have ever tested my reaction on and 144Hz makes motion very smooth in games.
Cons: Even with DAS on and 144Hz I had a longer reaction time than a CRT monitor running at 180Hz by 15-20ms.
Colors of fast moving objects bleed in DAS mode. Visible input delays present on the motion 240 modes but the blur IS cleared up.
I live in a studio apartment and the monitor in standby mode blinks the LED all night, even if you turned power LED off in the menus. To turn the monitor completely off, it shines a blinding grey tone across the entire panel first to show the menu.
Pretty confusing to figure out when the different modes apply. Power saving can only be used without DAS. DAS can only be used without motion 240. Picture mode can't be used with Gaming modes. 144Hz (intuitively) can't be used if you want motion 240.
You can get the monitor to do what you want but it will take a few days understanding the menus
Color accuracy, do not buy this for editing images, extensive online shopping for color sensitive items. Just moving your head up and down is enough to slightly change shades. The monitor is wide enough too that images I know should be a solid tone look slightly gradient towards the corner of the screen. Can't take too many stars away for this as all fast gaming LCD panels likely have this problem.
Energy saving mode even on "Low" causes whole screen shifts of brightness that are annoying.
Other Thoughts: This was my first LCD monitor since using a high end CRT monitor the past 10 years. People who are comparing it to other LCDs will likely feel better about it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism Jet Black Gaming Circumaural Headset
Pros: This headset will provide critical sound details for the FPS gamer. By default the frequency of footsteps is louder and clear.
The separation between sounds is excellent. These block out a substantial amount of outside noise so you will hear even quiet sounds.
Base is satisfying for a headset and accurate, not boomy or clouded.
For the most part no frequency will wash out and make others hard to hear.
These are stylish and have solid build quality.
Cons: They are heavy, not just too heavy to easily wear on a walk or at the gym but you'll notice the weight on your head within a couple hours of first using them. This is something you probably get used to. Treble, sounds higher than vocals in music, are not loud enough or clear enough. In fact for music alone I cannot recommend these as there are options half the price with better sound quality and comfort.
Other Thoughts: For first person shooter gaming these have the most precise detailed sound I have ever heard. They will certainly elevate your game if you are currently on budget headphones, any kind of desktop speaker or you demand the best in everything.
Just listen to your music on something else.
