This review is from: JVC HA-RX700 Stereo Headphone
Pros: - Mids and highs and fantastically clear
- Bass is deep but not overwhelming
- Frequency response is generally great for this price point
- Build quality is fantastic
- Comes with a 3.5/6.5mm converter
- Cord is long and very solid
- Fit adjustment could fit almost any head
Cons: - Took a little while to "break in" but were well worth the wait
- Could feel a little heavy after wearing for extended periods
- Could leak sound on higher volumes
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for headphones under the $50 price point, look no further. These are for you. The build quality is outstanding, sound is crystal clear and the fit is very flexible to adjust.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power consumption, price per performance, looks to be reliable so far with all the workload it's currently going through.
Cons: Definitely not reaching advertised speeds. Please read other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I bought this drive on sale from another source and price for performance is OK. But the advertised 450MB/s read/write speeds are definitely not accurate. I'm peaking 225MB/s read speed for 10MB files benchmark and 210MB/s write speed, running Ubuntu 14.04. I found an article later on talking about Kingston using slower NAND chips, hence the price drop and of course performance hit.
Bottom line, it's still a good value for the money, but you won't get the advertised numbers unless you're lucky enough to get one of the older drives. Just Google "An Update to Kingston SSDNow V300: A Switch to Slower Micron NAND" and read through.
This review is from: MASSCOOL 8WA741 92mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: This heatsink/fan come with a copper heatsink = better contact with CPU and better heat conductivity. It cooled down my e5200 overclocked to 3.3 GHz down to 20C idle and about 37C full load. The fan is reasonably quiet and just does the job.
Cons: The fins on the heatsink bend very easily, but they can be easily bent back into place. Also, this is a very large heatsink, so I'd recommend you take your case measurements first before buying. I haven't bothered with the thermal paste that came with it, just used Artic Silver 5.
Other Thoughts: Just a great heatsink/fan for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
