Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Update to: Died after 5 days 09/14/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Sound great, very good range, onboard volume and mic mute buttons. Very good dynamic range -not what I'd call audiophile quality but very good for a wide range of sounds in movies and games.

Cons: Not noise cancelling. Can still hear room noise unless they are cranked up (and they get REALLY LOUD if you're into that.)

Other Thoughts: These headphones seemed to die on me after 5 days of use -just before my first review. After letting them sit with the USB transmitter unplugger for a few days I plugged them back in to their USB charger and let them recharge fully.
I used them with my laptop and they worked fine, then re-tried my desktop and got the same odd behavior. Rebooted PC with them completely detatched, then reattached and now they seem to be working fine. It's been a headache but they have worked now for over a week, and I've been using them nightly so I'm happy. It could have been a windows 8.1 issue on my desktop. Have windows 10 on laptop and it never had issues. Ended up not taking Corsair up on their offer to help but do greatly appreciate that response to my first review!

1 out of 5 eggs Died after 5 days... 09/02/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: This headset feels great, sounds great (for movies and most games I've tried) and is ultra-convenient and responsive as a wireless headset. Very good range.

Cons: Completely died on day 5. Won't turn on at all. USB pings when I plug it into my PC, but nothing from the headset. When I plugged the USB transponder into my PC today it made the headphones the default audio device (didn't do that before) which shut off the speakers while listening to my favorite YouTube Channel: RedLetterMedia. And then the headphones didn't even have sound! They had no light, no sound, and I had no joy.

Other Thoughts: Reboot: No Go. Unplug-replug: No Go. Change USB port: NO Go. All of the above in one pass: No Go.
A busted VCR would be better than this.
C'mon Corsair, make this right. I have another Best of the Worst in my queue!

WD Blue WD10J31X 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs SSHD is Advancing Well 08/01/2015

This review is from: WD Blue WD10J31X 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive

Pros: SSD Speed for often-used applications, Large capacity, decent file transfer speeds, good price.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice improvement over the last generation of SSHD. I cloned my laptop's (Lenovo y50, i5, 8GB, GTX860m) Kingston 240GB SSDNow300 V to it, but before that I ran several benchmarks as a control on the SSD. Then I benchmarked the heck out of this SSHD, running each benchmark at least three times to see the improvement with each run -and it was significant. The Witcher 2 open improved from 33.8 seconds on first run to 26.1 seconds on the third run. Not much improvement past that, but the SSD in my main rig with a similar Core i5 takes 28.3 seconds... PC Mark Vantage (I know, kind of old) told a very interesting story: SSD score was 11,037. SSHD (1) 5892 (2) 6668 (3) 7227 (4) 7598 This drive improved the score 129% in four runs. While it never got close the the SSD, other tests were much more competitive. Shadow of Mordor built-in benchmark: SSD Max fps=81.39 Avg=38.33 SSHD (1) Max=87.32 Avg.=35.06 (2) Max.=72.69 Avg.=36.96 (3) Max.=113.07 Avg.=37.28 (4) Max.=96.51 Avg.=38.61 This test showed this SSHD besting my SSD in max and average framerates by the third and fourth run! Windows boot times were very average when it was first installed, but improved dramatically getting the final boot time down to 20 seconds to functioning desktop. The HDD that came with this laptop took a solid 45+ seconds to boot, but my SSD boots in around 13, so basically this SSHD is a very nice balance between storage and speed. It's important to remember that it will only improve the performance of programs that run multiple times because it has to cache the loading files to its little SSD portion. How it learns this is a mystery to me but it works! If you have a laptop with one drive bay you can't go wrong with this drive.

A note on large file transfers: I used a Samsung Portable SSD T1 to test this (USB3.0 drive and PC port.) A 1.5GB video file copied onto the SSHD at around 30MB/s, but the same file was able to write back to the SSD at a whopping 300MP/s for about half of the transfer, then it slowed and hovered around 100MB/s. Still extremely fast. Considering that pulling data off the drive whether opening a file or moving stuff to another drive is the most important part of a disk drive's performance to most people, this thing works perfectly.
