Pros: Comfortable, a 3 hour gaming session made my ears a bit warm, but not uncomfortable.
Well made, I don't feel like I will break them.
Easy set up. I switch between using them on my PS3 and Xbox360. The alternate sound presets are cool, but I use the main preset on both platforms. I think you get the best balance that way.
The sound quality is great, with very little distortion. I have gotten distortion at high volume, but at that point, its too loud anyway. The lows are not bone shaking, but it is well balanced.
Cons: The swivels on the ear cups feel a bit flimsy. I have a really nice set of Sony monitors that feel the same way. That being said, I think if you refrain from chucking them across the room, you should be just fine.
The surround sound is not as well defined as I would like. I get a general sense of direction in BF3, Space Marine, MW3 or GoW3, but not a head turning "what was that" reaction. That being said, I still like the effect.
The reviews with issues placing the base station near a 2.4ghz wireless router are accurate. Mine was about 4 feet away diagonally and I was getting drop outs and chat distortion.
Other Thoughts: About the 2.4ghz interference. My first solution was to change channels. I tried ch1 through ch11 on my Linksys E2000. No luck. If I changed to 5ghz, the dropouts and distortion disappeared, but my iPhone/iPad lost wifi connectivity. My final solution was to grab my old Linksys WRT54GS and set it up in my office about 30 feet away as a Wifi access point. Problem solved. NowREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Wenger Black 15"/15.4" COMET Double Gusset Computer Case Model WA-7411-02
Pros: Nice Styling, great build quality. Plenty of pockets for mouse, spare network hub and patch cables. Good padding for laptop, with comfy handles and shoulder straps. Exterior is made from 1000 denier Cordura, or somthing like that, and looks great after lots of use, and the zippers have yet to sprip on me.
Cons: Just a bit heavy with all loaded up, but I just need to work out more!
Other Thoughts: I worked at REI for several years, and spend some of those years in Customer Service. I NEVER saw Wenger bags and cases returned. That's saying something!READ FULL REVIEW
