This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46
Pros: Speed was better than any flash drive I've used recently.
Light weight, you'll forget about it in your pocket.
Cons: Covers do not stay fully extended as easily as they should and do not protect the most important contacts. It's as though they're only there to prevent bending.
Too small for optimum ergonomics. You're going to drop it a lot unless you have tiny fingers.
Was not compatible with my Samsung S4 mini without additional software.
Allen at SanDisc Support automatically replies to reviews less than 5 stars with a cut and paste message even when the lost feedback is fundamental to the design.
Color and design is boring to look at.
Pros: Fits in my MSI X79a-GD45 Plus motherboard without needing to remove the oversized CPU heatsink or avoid using particular DIMM slots.
Provides a very noticeable boost in system performance upgrading from one 8GB stick of PC3 12800
Scores a maximum score of 7.9 for memory operations per second in Windows Experience Index.
Cons: Packaging is not the best,
Paper box provides no support and both modules were loose within the plastic case. Shaking side to side made the modules impact each other. As well as one corner of the PCB had slipped to a higher ledge than the rest of the plastic backing so a sharp impact from above could chip or crack the PCB. That's a real possibility since they were shipped in a bubble envelope.
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1400 Dual 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: The construction is sound and they are very comfortable. You shouldn't break these even throwing them loose into a backpack and not being particularly careful.
The blue instead the ear cushion looks stylish.
Great noise isolation. High volumes aren't needed in noisy environments.
The high frequencies are not reproduced, what can be heard is too tinny or slightly distorted.
Bass has decent reproduction but the sound pressure isn't high enough to feel it, it just sounds correct.
Conveniently the mic can be moved out of the line of sight when not being used.
The microphone is mildly successful at blocking out background noise (music).
Cons: They are not very sensitive and with my Soundblaster onboard, the maximum volume in windows, on the headphone cord and in the application is not often not as loud as I would like. Fortunately noise isolation is excellent and high volumes are not needed to hear the sound.
Very very low base frequencies cannot be heard.
The sound quality at every frequency is worse than the bundled earbuds included with my S4 mini cellphone.
There is also a popping sound heard over the recording.
The low-fi sound quality is worse than both my 8 year old Creative desktop speakers and my 6 year old Audio Technica headphones. Which cost approximately the same as these.
Other Thoughts: The Vengeance 1400 headset does not sound good compared to my 6 year old Audio Technica ATH - A 55 headphones. These and my 7.1 Creative Inspire Speakers were my reference devices.
The mid range sound reproduction is clear but quiet compared to the base.
Voice recording is clear and accurate but there is plenty of background hiss.
I must restate how accurate the voice recording is, I sound exactly the same on the recording as I do in person.
I would give these a 1 star review but they are not worthless, have some strengths and certainly appear they'll last a long time, but why you'd want to endure less than great sound while other options have better sound reproduction and recording is beyond me. I didn't know headsets this expensive sounded this bad.
Even the Steel Series headset 5Hv2 sounded better than these (for audio playback only, recording accuracy is superior on these if you ignore the hiss and pops) and they cost less than these 7 years ago.
