This review is from: Razer Tiamat Over Ear 7.1 Surround Sound PC Gaming Headset
Pros: -Extremely comfortable
-Great for gaming, the 7.1 surround sound works as accurately as it should
-Looks cool and produces great sounds (While it lasts...)
Cons: -Poor Mic design
-Right woofer making a loud crackling noise after 7 months of use (See other thoughs)
Other Thoughts: I really like this headset a lot but it turns out the right sub speaker is going out and it makes this horrible crackling noise and just doesn't produce the sound it did when I got it. I was never rough with it and I didn't drop it or expose it to extreme heat or cold it just.. Started having issues.
The headset sounds great while it's working and I fully recommend it but, I can't really say how the build quality is on these. They feel pretty sturdy but if one of the primary components like a speaker starts going out I don't know what to think. Especially for $180.
I already submitted an RMA claim, just sucks that now I have to pay to return it and hope that I don't get some refurbished one that some fat sweaty dude was using.
This review is from: LOGITECH G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse
Pros: -Looks epic
-Great laser and super smooth tracking
Cons: THE STUPID MOUSEWHEEL
Other Thoughts: Ok so I've had this mouse for a few days now, and I'm beginning to hate it because I use the middle mouse click to open a new tab when I click on a link. HOWEVER I CAN'T BECAUSE WHENEVER I TRY TO USE MIDDLE MOUSE CLICK, IT SCROLLS DOWN!
No matter how focused I try to click it, if the wheel doesn't even move at all it will still scroll down. Locked mode, free-spin mode it still scrolls down when you use the middle mouse button. Completely unacceptable for $80, it takes me 5 or 6 tries to open a page and it makes me want to pitch this thing in the garbage. I have to revert to using my cruddy worn-out R.A.T 5 for internet use because of this stupid mousewheel problem.
Logitech if you can fix this with a patch I will gladly change to 5 eggs but this is insanely frustrating.
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DSX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Audio Card
Pros: -Works with Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset
-Bass kicks HARD
Cons: -See other thoughts
Other Thoughts: After reading up that the drivers are a mess I was somewhat skeptical about this sound card but I soon discovered that's all nonsense. The drivers work just as intended and if they don't work for you there are other community created patches and workarounds (Yes, there is a community surrounding the Xonar series of sound cards).
And for those of you complaining that the software is from 2012 please dunk your heads. It's a sound card, and unless you're buying a $200+ card don't expect monthly updates to fix all of your little nitpicky problems with the interface, get over it.
Overall this sound card works great. I got it, plugged it into a PCI-E x16 lane (x1 is covered by crossfire), installed drivers, and I was listening in pure bliss within 15 minutes. Don't let the bad reviews fool you, most of the people complaining "OH THIS DUZENT WERK!" would probably try to download more ram. Great product ASUS, expect my business in the future!
