This review is from: HGST Touro Desk Pro 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 0S03503 Black
Pros: 4TB's at a low price.
Cons: No power button.
Freezed all the time.
Freezing so much now im sure its going to die soon.
Freezes up my computer when shut down or even boot up to the point that i have to unplug it to kill what ever processes it's so slowly trying to compute.
Other Thoughts: I gave it 3 Eggs before, if i could now i would give it 0
It was fast when i got it, its so slow now that everything i do takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
It's going to die soon.
Do not buy this drive. Waste of money.
This review is from: ASUS XONAR DSX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Audio Card
Pros: - Great Sound Quality
- Great for speakers
- Easy to manually install (no power due to pci-e)
- Easy to install software
- Best for the 25 - 100 dollar range
- Software is user friendly (basic onboard style settings)
Cons: - Little amplification for Audiophile Headphones (Cans Fool!)
I bought this card because I read its specs (192KHz, 24-bit) and knew that it would perform and i could tweek it to get what sound I wanted but the actual output is lacking. Possibly because its pci-e and has no power plugs like standard pci? I had an HT Striker before standard pci and it could punch a lot of output to quality headphones. I listen to music as loud as i can without it hurting physically w/ the greatest amount of level bass. So yeah...->
- The Drivers, effects and EQ
You would think, hey man maybe you could correct that output issue in the software/drivers? You can raise the audio level a little more in the "audiocenters" "mixer" just enough to merit the question "Why was it even lowered stock?". The Effects are in the style of basic onboard cards a la realtek (exact actually and i don't use that stuff/fluff anyways so w/e). The EQ is your basic winamp or realtek style which is always nice but i expected more (asking too much?).
Other Thoughts: Don't let my title and review scare you, this card gives amazing sound at a great low cost. It will blow any mobo/onboard audio in quality and performance of course with these specs. The EQ is always capable of tweaking and getting that sound you want for whatever style of music you listen to. I didn't want to spend more than 80 dollars and this was the best for that price range and i would purchase it again. I was just hoping for a diamond in the rough I guessREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Audio-Technica ATR-1200 Black 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Cardioid Vocal Microphone
Pros: For 17 Dollars the sound quality exceeds what you pay for. This isn't a regular PC mic, this is a vocal Mic so you have to get very close to have it pick up your vocals but its very crisp and clear with proper deep lows and great mids, haven't tested the highs but i from the sound it would be lacking.
Cons: Might just be the Mic that came to me in the mail, but this ATR1200 has a silver metal protective hash top, not the black top in the picture but that doesn't bother me much. What bothers me is that it only records to the left channel only, not stereo, not even mono, just left speaker/phone/channel. That bugged me sorely. When ever i record my voice i have to split the stereo tracks, delete the right channel, dupe the left into the right. Just stupid. I have 3 different sound cards, and from stock mobo, to my omega, and my xonar it does the same thing.
Other Thoughts: If i could i'd give it a 2.5 out of 5 i would.
It might just be the Mic i got, but if this is the case for all then I wouldn't recommend buying it. If its just mine I would highly recommend this mic to anyone doing low budget hobby/project music or maybe hosting an online talk show.
