Pros: I purchased two of these with my 2010 christmas bonus. They've served me very adequately in a dual monitor setup. I'm not a visual aficionado, but the colors look nice, and I've never had any problems with video or anything. Considering the price, I've been extremely pleased with their performance over the last year.
Cons: Two cons, one minor, one major enough to drop the review from 5 stars down to 3.
First, as a minor critique, the monitors become very dark when viewed from a high or low angle. I know this is commonplace with LCD monitors, but it seems particularly pronounced on these monitors. However, these are the first LCD monitors I've actually owned, so I could simply be unaware of what is typical.
My major complaint is that one of my monitors is starting to have serious display issues after only a year. In the top right hand corner there is a dark red spot which seems to be growing in size. It's only about a centimeter of dark color radiating from the corner at the moment, but it's not going away. I've noticed one other small spot which seems to be doing this as well, along the top edge.
Additionally, the top center of the monitor seems to have developed a massive cluster of dead pixels, but only when viewed from certain angles or on certain colors. Sometimes blue, sometimes yellow.
Other Thoughts: I have not yet contacted customer support to see if the warranty will cover this. I need to find my warranty first, but I only have 2-3 weeks left. If I'm particularly impressed or disappointed with their service on this, I will report back.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have never been happier with the comfort, features, and sound quality of headphones. This blows away pretty much anything I've ever been able to find in any store on all counts. Everything from the ample size of the circumaural phones, to the detachable microphone, to the extra long cord.
Cons: I've owned two of these headsets, and both of them have had the plastic body break after just a few months.
I thought, when paying $90 for a pair of headphones, that I would receive a product which could withstand careful handling, and several hours of use each day. Yet here I am, using a headband to hold them to my head, with one of the ear pieces hanging by nothing but the electric wire.
Other Thoughts: I love these headphones. But having lost two of them in such a short time, I simply can't justify spending this much money on the same thing all over again.READ FULL REVIEW
