Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best I've ever had. 08/04/2014

This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: Clear tones, sufficiently loud, comfortable during long sessions.

With some third party software, I was able to configure one of the side buttons as a "push to talk" for teamspeak. Lets me communicate when walking about.

I recommend this to anyone who asks.

Cons: Could not use it at work, due to signal interference from another (900 mhz, I assume?) source.

MSI GT Series GT70 Dominator-895 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4800MQ (2.70GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 3GB 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Capable of handling anything I've thrown at it thus far. Perhaps not 60fps @ max settings, but smooth and good looking.

Impressed with the sound. Often sounds better than the TV I hook it up to in whatever random hotel I happen to be staying at in a given week.

Significantly less heat buildup than my last gaming laptop.

Little wasted space in the design. I was able to fit it into my old rolling bag, which was not designed to accommodate such a large laptop. Handles conveniently enough when passing through airport security.

Boots impressively fast, even without an SSD.

Cons: Windows 8. Tried to approach it with an open mind, but I've ended up spending hours trying to make 8 be less like 8, and more like 7. I've strongly considered wiping the system and "downgrading" to 7.

Lots of bloatware and trial software. Once again, I would have greatly preferred to start with a clean OS.

1TB drive isn't exactly small, but it does keep me from keeping my entire steam library on the local machine.

Other Thoughts: I travel most weeks, and wanted a large screen, 1080p option for entertainment. This machine has not disappointed. No real issues, aside from the windows 8 hassle.

1EG-MBK Metallic Black 39-Inch Electric Guitar Package w/ Gig Bag, Picks, Strap & More (Full Size)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, and suitable for my needs as an absolute beginner.

Cons: I've run into two issues within my ~2 weeks of ownership:

1. The included strap was not quite long enough to let me comfortably position the instrument. I'm a bit taller than your average person (just under 6'2") so this may not be an issue for more normal sized people. Furthermore, the discomfort may have been related to my inexperience.

Regardless, as I struggled to find a comfortable position, the slider that allows you to take in the slack on the strap broke. No huge loss, as I had not intended to use anything less than the maximum length. A couple days later, however, the strap completely severed at the point where it anchors to the guitar. I've since replaced the strap with a longer version, acquired elsewhere.

2. While learning a new song, I noticed that one note continually sounded wrong. I ensured that the string was in tune, and all other fretted notes along that string rang clear. All was in good order, except for that note (2nd string, 11th fret.)

Did some further testing, and found two other notes that buzzed, rather than sounding clear. Research has indicated that parts of the fret bars are a bit too high, making it impossible for those notes to be played properly.

Alas, it seems that the broken strap prevents me from getting a free replacement through the supplier, so I will either choose to learn songs that don't use the bad notes (not too difficult, as the other notes aren't immensely popular in the types of songs I am learning) or pay out of pocket for repairs at a local store.

Other Thoughts: I know the cons section was long, but I would still recommend this for a beginner. Hard to find full sized guitars at this price.
