This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: You can tell by looking at this headset that a lot of work and time has gone into the design of this headset. Corsair has been bringing some quality products to the table and this one is no different.
- Lightweight and durable with the hinges being what feels like aluminum.
- Buttons on the headset once you get used to them are easy to hit
- Infomic is ok i guess
- Microphone sounds relatively clear and crisp.
- 50mm drivers capable of making some neutral sound
- RGB lighting on a headset?? Cool in theory but all i can see is battery drain.
- Somewhere between 8 and 10 hours of battery life before the thing starts beeping telling me it's at 15%
Cons: None of these cons would drive me from reducing eggs but for the amount of effort they put in designing this headset i don't understand why
- Infomic leds are pointed AWAY from you
- Buttons could be more responsive
- Software could be better... Needs a different way of monitoring battery life
- It seems initial firmware make it so the headset doesn't get very loud and i often find too much having everything turned all the way up.
- RANGE (40 ft is dreaming, it's 21 feet to my kitchen and it cuts in and out and lets forget about going to any other room..)
Other Thoughts: This headset is a good skype/gaming headset even for the price. Getting up and not having to take off headphones is an awesome idea but the range on these things really leave something to be desired.
Sound quality is acceptable, but don't go into these things expecting better sound than a pair of decent headphones. Though the sound quality is improved with software EQ but it's still not as good as i think it could be.
The infomic has the LEDS pointed away from you, so you either need to just hold your hand over the LEDS to tell or just turn the mic to you but this is probably because you dont want LEDS pointed at your eyeballs when your trying to game. There were other ways to tackle this, like lights pointing down or ones that aren't bright etc.
Overall being able to skype and game and listen to music all without having any wires attached to me makes me give this product a thumbs up. The battery life was good, EQ makes these things heaps better and the mic was unsurprisingly good quality as well. Would recommend to a friend.
Pros: Nice packaging made from materials that are nice to touch.
Inside the packaging you get:
- TP link wireless n300 extender
- quick start guide
- installation disk
- general license notice.
Cons: None really. it's an inexpensive product and you get what you pay for. A basic wifi extender that does it's job but nothing miraculous.
Other Thoughts: Speeds could be better but i put this near my west wall closest to my drive way to get better wifi signals in my drive way. It has helped a lot by allowing me to listen to pandora when i work on my car.
My internet service is 100mb download and 5mb upload but i typically get around 120mb down and 7mb up, and in the room with the router i get those speeds with around 30 or so ping. Using this adapter i managed to get a whopping 22mb down and 3mb up with 75 ping using speed test on my phone.
Does it work? yes. Is it the best product out there? No. Is it practical for the everyday consumer who just needs wifi a little farther away? yes. Do i reccomend gaming or doing anything intensive with it? No.
You get what you pay for and honestly for just letting me play music on pandora out in my driveway i would buy this inexpensive well designed product 10 out of 10 times.
This review is from: CORSAIR 256GB USB Flash Drive Model CMFSL3X2-256GB
Pros: Fast usb drives that gets faster with higher capacities, much like ssds do.
These drives are small and compact with a not too bright but just right blue LED indicator light.
Corsair makes some aesthetically pleasing and well built products and this one is no different.
Nice rubber finish on the sides to help with sliding the drive, overall corsair has completely changed my mind on flash drives. Having the speed these have i'll never go back to other flash drives.
Cons: The only gripe i have with this drive is that the usb connector is exposed and has nothing protecting it, but i suppose you could always just blow out any particles of pocket lint that manage to get in there
Other Thoughts: For me, this drive was already exciting because of it's rated 200mb/s read and 90mb/s write but my results got even better than that.
We'll start off with it's results with crystal disk mark, this flash drive benched
That's already faster than what it's specified so my real world tests included copying over a large game(gta5) which is 61gb and a folder that is 1gb of mixed pictures/videos
Read: 195mb/s with burst speeds high as 245mb/s
write: 120mb/s with burst speeds high as 150mb/s
While the reads are pretty much in margin of error, that's a 33% faster speed than what it's rated for. Overall, i am very happy with the performance of this drive but you should also not forget, this drive is 256gb!! i'll be really surprised if i ever manage to fill this drive.
