This review is from: Tt eSPORTS SHOCK ONE Diamond Black DTS 5.1 Gaming Headset HT-SHO001EC
Pros: Exceptional build quality over my previous headset (Gamecom 777, which snapped in two). The materials are of higher quality than others I've used. The DTS audio is great when watching your favorite blurays and you can definitely hear your enemies sneaking up on you when gaming. The braided cable is a nice feature with the attached velcro strap, so you don't have to wind the cable around your headphones when transporting. The nice bonuses would include the light-up Tt logo on the ear cups (which can be switched off) and the inline controller which is easy to use but also has a sliding "Lock" on the side to keep from accidently triggering a button (mute) mid-game. Though it didn't matter to me, some may enjoy the extra long 3 meter USB cable on this headset. It will have no trouble reaching the rear input on your case and will still leave you with slack to move around a bit. This headset also includes interchangeable ear pads; one set is leather which are good for isolation, one is cloth
Cons: None so far :)
Other Thoughts: I am extremely pleased with Thermaltake and will likely purchase other Tt eSports products based on the how much I love these headphones. A vast upgrade from my previous headset from a different brand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I now play on maxed settings on every game I own and haven't even seen it stutter. The fans are so efficient that I never hear them spin up, but I also run it in a very well ventilated Xaser VI.
I'm so happy with this card! Easy install and included DVI to HDMI was a nice bonus too.
Cons: Size matters. I have an EVGA X58 Classified E-ATX mobo and it's nearly the same length, so be aware of your dimensions and any conflicts you may have with connections on your own mobo. MEASURE!
Price...but you definitely get what you pay for with this card. I just wish I could've bought two at the same time.
Other Thoughts: I hear there are some compatibility issues with Crossfiring this card...and that it must be the same model of ASUS card. This isn't a problem for my setup, but I will need an extended Crossfire bridge to do so (not hard to find), as the included bridges would be one slot too short.
I haven't done any overclocking with this card, but I haven't deemed it necessary yet either. It runs every game I own on MAX settings, so I'll have to wait for the next set of games to come out to really push this card.
