This review is from: SHARKOON X-Tatic Pro Real 5.1 Gaming Headset for Xbox 360, PS3 & PC
Pros: I will not talk a lot about all of its features just read some of the other reviews. I mainly wanted everyone to know that due to a firmware update for the PS4 this headset now works great with it. Everything now works just like it does on the PC and the PS3, just plug in the optical cable into the PS4 and then plug in the supplied USB cable and now the PS4 recognizes and uses the mic via the USB interface. There are a couple of settings that need to be made on your PS4.
Other Thoughts: I also find them to be very comfortable for long term use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Hey this is not the best keyboard out there but for 19.99 (I got mine on Newegg Flash last week) is a winner. For me it has a good feel and the keys are easy to see especially in the dark. No it is not a gaming keyboard but I do not know of any that are this inexpensive. I mainly bought mine as a back up keyboard and was not expecting much but after using it for a while I was pleasantly surprised.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: For me this could be perfect if they made it wireless. I like the fact that it is very light weight. Oh also I wish that you could adjust how bright the illumination is, the way it is designed it is either off or on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Everything works as it is supposed to, I purchased two of these enclosures the last time they were on sale. For those of you having problems with them not working correctly, the problem is probably due to you using Western Digital drives, they design their drives to purposely not work in raid set ups because they want you to spend hundreds of dollars on their enterprise drives. There was so much complaining from enthusiasts like you and me who build their own systems that they finally developed a modestly priced drive called the WD Red that is meant for NAS and raid setups. As of now they do not have any 2.5" drive that will work in a raid set up. I had a different 2.5" raid enclosure that when I first set it up I only had two different drives so I configured it as non raid, I think CinRaid calls it Big but I believe the correct term is JOBD. The drives I used were a Samsung 1TB and a 500GB WD Black. Well every few minutes the raid would fall off line and I would have to unplug it and then re attach it to the usb for it to work again. After this happened for a while I did some Google searches to see if I could find out what was wrong and found several articles that all stated the same thing, if you want to build a relatively cheap raid do not buy WD drives because they by design will not work in a raid. I purchased an additional 1TB Samsung drive and have never had an issue since, I believe that every other brand will work in a raid but not WD. After my previous enclosures power connector failed I bought the two CineRaid enclosures and have not had any difficulties. For me a very big PRO is they did not use the micro B USB3 connector. I have not owned one device that uses this connector that I have not had connectivity issues. The type of connector for me is the deciding factor if I will purchase a USB 3 device or not. If it has any other type connector then I buy it but not if it uses the micro B USB 3 connector.
Cons: No eSATA port, it is not really a con but as a note to CineRaid. I would pay more for the same enclosure if you also included an eSATA port.
Other Thoughts: do not hesitate to buy if you want a compact fast enclosure. I use mine for my Steam account, I now have 166 games and have used up 733GBs of space. Not too long from now I will need more than 1TB. I use an external drive for Steam so I can use it with my Gaming Desktop as well as my Laptop without using up all the storage space on the laptop just for a duplicate Steam. For those wondering how I did this I Do a regular Steam install on the different systems so Steam is registered in the Windows registry but I do not use the Steam on the C drive. When I plug in the external drive I launch Steam from a shortcut I put in the drives root directory. I simply open the drive in Explorer and click on the short cut pointing to the Steam.exe that is on the external drive. The only draw back is you need to disable the Steam Guard that checks if the system is a trusted system. If you do not then every time you log into Steam you have to activate the system each time.READ FULL REVIEW
