This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)
Pros: Worked right away in every way the description says. Good make, lots of ports, great profile, good indicator lights
Cons: The USB cord is pretty darn short-- easily replaceable but annoying.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus for Mac 2TB 3.5" USB 3.0 Mac Storage - Desktop Model STCB2000900
Pros: Once I got it working, it's been great, exactly what you want from a USB 3.0 portable hard drive.
Once I got it installed, the Dashboard is simple and easy to use.
Cons: Initially showed up as a device, said it was installed, but wasn't in Computer. Well ok, set options to show empty drives.
Oh? Still not there?
Well alright then, Disk Management here we go.
There it is! Wait, why doesn't it have a name? Just a blank field for a 2 TB drive.
Well, alright, I'll just rename it.
Right click on the drive, and every single option is greyed out.
Ok then... can't rename the drive to be recognized. Fun.
15 minutes of troubleshooting later, including installing the Seagate troubleshooter, Windows 7 drivers, and Dashboard (which also did not automatically install like it was supposed to), I just reformatted the drive. No more shenanigans, little drive.
Set up and named the drive through Windows, and it worked like a charm immediately.
This darn thing wasn't formatted correctly, it appears. That's a bad move, Seagate.
Other Thoughts: It's a good drive, but it's also hard to have a bad drive. Either it works or it doesn't.
I shouldn't have to reformat the darn thing to use it.
This review is from: SYBA GamesterGear P3210 Rumble Effect PC & PS3 Wired Gaming Headset
Pros: - The sound is great.
-The mic is one of the best-sounding mics I've ever dealt with.
-Even the rumble effect, which I was tentative about, is a nice touch. Think of it as a subtle bass effect. It's pretty good.
-Cord is nice, long, and durable.
-The volume control is easy to use and very worthwhile.
-Very comfortable headset. Haven't worn it for too long straight, yet (just a few hours), but pretty good so far.
- Pretty much plug-in-and-play (once I got it working).
Cons: When I first tried making this headset work, the mic refused to pick up any sound. At all. The audio worked great but no fiddling with sound settings, headphone controls, or restarting the computer did any good. My comp registered the mic but would pick up no sound. Couldn't get it working on my roommate's laptop either, but could get HIS headset working fine on my computer.
I went off to do something else for several hours and then tried again, and it worked perfectly the second I plugged it in. Strangest thing. I have no idea what went wrong the first time-- I plugged it in multiple times securely before.
Anyways, everything is working great now-- see pros.
One other con:
-The chat volume control on the volume control does absolutely nothing. Mic turns on and off fine, bass control works, and Game volume just controls the general volume. Chat volume is not altered as far as I can tell. Not a huge thing for me, but notable.
-Lastly, if your mic is on, you will hear the mic in the headset, very well and very clear. The mic is fantastic and I personally like this, but some people do not like this.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very nice, great-looking and performing headset. Would recommend even at the current $65, even though I managed to get it on a much deeper sale.READ FULL REVIEW
