This review is from: Logitech G933 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
Pros: -Great wireless range
-Reasonable battery life*
Cons: -Non standard battery
-Spendy; Most I've ever spent on a headset
-No, really. The software is awful.
-Large USB receiver. Not a problem for me, but I could see it getting broken off sticking out of a computer.
-Covered in lights. Why? No, really. Give me one good reason.
Other Thoughts: You have to install the software to disable the lights, but once they're gone do yourself a favor and uninstall that software! It caused problems with other applications, but the kicker was when it simply disabled my (WIRED) keyboard during a game. I have no idea how. Killing the process for the logitech headset fixed the issue. I got rid of it after that.
With the software gone, I've never had any of the "shutting off to save power" other people complain about. I've also not had any trouble with the battery- I don't have time to game all day these days, but some nights I'll still go for 6+ hours and I can go 2-3 nights like that before I have to plug this thing in.
That brings me to my biggest complaint- the battery. It's removable, why can't it be standard? At the very least, why can't it be like any (sane) cellphone battery so you can have a spare sitting in a charger, ready to swap out when yours gets low? Plugging in my wireless headset while playing a game is a major bummer, and I'm not about to remember to plug it in after use. Speaking of which, I'm plugging it in right now- because it's been a few days since I remember unplugging it last...
Smaller complaint, the lights are stupid. This is a device that, when in use:
-you can't see
-is limited to battery power
-rides on that fat head of yours
So please, indulge me. Why would you add more plastic and electronics adding weight and increasing power draw for a feature that not only gives no improvement to the purpose of the product, but actually detracts from its functionality? I wonder how many engineering hours were spent (adding to the cost of the product) to design and tweak these.
Other than that, they do their job- and I've not broken them yet.
-simple to set up,
-defaults that make sense
-games for windows live works with it (which isnt as common as you'd think)
-has a high enough wan to lan throughput to keep up with 30mbit wan
Cons: -Does not keep track of DHCP leases through a reboot. this is BAD because the default DHCP lease time is FOREVER.
-Dyndns.org update did not work when my IP changed, forcing me to reboot the router.
-forwarding TCP/UDP 1723 to a LAN machine (pptp server) caused UDP53 (DNS) to stop working. (???) Repeated this three times to be sure...
-Cant seem to block wan IP ranges in the firewall. Might be user error.
-Interface wants to default to a wizard for everything, and the wizard wants to overwrite any manual settings. Annoying
Other Thoughts: I purchased this after reading rave reviews from smallnetbuilder.com on the v1 hardware for this model. After using it a couple weeks, this might just be the worst router I've ever used- only trumped by the $200 netgear I bought locally that couldn't figure out upnp as well as my 10+ year old wrt54gv2.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NORCO RPC-810D Black Steel 4U Rackmount Chassis 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: Solid build, standard ATX psu, fits even a server-sized motherboard
Cons: 60mm exaust vents on the back, 80mm on the top.
Optical drive cage can interfere a little with huge motherboards.
Other Thoughts: I find myself using only the two 120mm intakes because noise is an issue. You CAN fit sata drives, but some cables would cause interferance with the case, including the vertical style SATA plugs.
Theres obviously no room for sata adaptors on pata drive, but it can fit 6 drives.
The corner of my K7D kindof touches the 5.25 cage- after so many changes i've almost broken a cap off.
