This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS SV710 Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset
Pros: Great sound, comfortable, microphone design, cord length
Cons: microphone sound quality
Other Thoughts: While the headset is physically large, it's surprisingly light & comfortable. Playing different bass frequencies through the headset, I get great bass down to 31Hz. The bass isn't as effective below that but surprisingly, it's still audible down to about 25Hz before it starts falling completely flat. I wish the sub in my home could go as low as this headset can.
I had to turn on mic boost in my PC's settings to be heard and it isn't as clear as the headset this replaced. Despite the microphone not being as clear, it's not terrible and others can still understand me fine. Most the time I'm wearing a headset I have no need for a microphone, it's nice being able to retract it until it's needed.
I tried the various sound presets but I'm picky with my audio, I had to use the 10-Band EQ in order to customize the sound to my liking.
This replaced a TB Ear Force X11 with an Ear Force DSS 7.1 processor. They perform similar "surround sound" wise but the G.SKILL has much better bass and is far superior at blocking out ambient noise.
This isn't just a great headset in its price range, it sounds better than headsets I've spent quite a bit more on than this one sells for. I wasn't sure about this product at first, the only G.SKILL products I've owned was their memory modules but it turns out they make great headsets too.
This review is from: CORSAIR 16GB USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X1-16GB
Pros: size, design (love the slider designed drives), plenty of speed for HD video playback
Other Thoughts: it's a nice drive, I also own one of Corsair's 256gb slider drives (Voyager X1). I'm going to repeat what everybody else says, but I love that there's no cap. The sliders by Corsair are the best design out there and they're also affordable.
4K: read 8.002 - write 0.338
Seq: read 82.64 - write 10.07
Cons: While the difference is minuscule, the only con I can come up with is it not being platinum rated.
Other Thoughts: While the ability to monitor your fan speed/loads with the Corsair Link interface is neat, my favorite features of this power supply are its aesthetics.
The edges being flat give the power supply a sleek look. You'll like it whether you have a case that displays it or you're like me and you tend to take/post pictures of your builds.
The 20+4 pin needs to be used on any PC this is installed in so the only reason I can see for them making that cable modular is so it'd match the other cables. I won't purchase a non-modular power supply, even if it's a PC nobody will ever see the inside of. It's worth it to spend the few extra dollars to not have to zip-tie the extra cables, on top of that the extra cables can potentially affect the airflow.
The fan on this Power supply only turns on when it needs to, otherwise it's completely silent. I've upgraded all the fans in my case so my PC could run silent, I couldn't ask for a better power supply to compliment it.
Corsair has been good to me thus far with their power supplies, I've owned many and each one has outlived the PC it was purchased for. I'm currently running a single GTX 970, I was afraid of running 2 on the 550w power supply this replaced but my second to SLI will be my next purchase.
