This review is from: Rosewill 5.1-Channel Vibrating Gaming Headset- USB Connector - RHTS-8206
Pros: Very Comfortable fit
Vibration feedback is a cool novelty
Cons: HORRIBLE mic. I was excited to pull this headset out of the box as it was delivered today and am thoroughly disappointed. None of my friends could understand what I was saying and the sound from the mic was garbled and unintelligible. With vibration feedback enabled - lots of distortion and feedback added to sound. Sound itself was mediocre at best.
Other Thoughts: This is the only product I have bought from Newegg yet I was so disgusted with. I hope I can return it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice GPU, you can tell by the packaging and design that EVGA puts out a quality product. There was definitely a "Wow" factor as I opened up the box. I am running all my games at 1920x1200 with setting most of the way up.
EVGA provides some very nice and useful utilities that you may actually want to install.
Metro is a good game.
The warranty ROCKS.
Cons: Performance is great other than a single anomaly in the game War Thunder with the particle physics frame rates would suddenly drop from 70-100 fps to single digits. Not good in an online game. I cranked down the settings and it disappeared...but kind of a letdown after just upgrading my rig. In Metro Last light the same thing happened. The solution wasn't as evident as with war thunder but after some tweaking and eventually figured it out. In those two games for awhile my laptop with a GeForce 680m was performing better (but at lower resolution). Newer drivers and a relaxation of the settings has since fixed this - so I think it was a driver issue.
I tend to agree that this card is probably overpriced for the performance I've seen so far.
Metro is nice...but look what AMD/Radeon is packaging with their cards... :/
Other Thoughts: I really struggled over which card to buy with my new rig. I'm not disappointed with this card and would still recommend it to someone, but I might make a different decision if I had it to do over, especially with the new cards in the 700 series out now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good performance.
I hear the integrated GPU isn't too bad.
Nice processor overall very happy with it.
Cons: Lament the end of separate mobile and desktop lines. I think with the design and architecture changes Intel has made here - it is clear they are going to merge desktop and laptop CPU lines. Who knows if this is a good thing or not...
Another stupid socket. Really Intel, could you please not change the socket every couple years?!?!
Other Thoughts: Buy the K if you want to overclock.
Intel has merged several power management functions onto the CPU with this line. Just be aware that as a result it will actually run hotter than an equivalent Ivy Bridge chip. This is by design but something to be aware of.
