Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Back-lit (GK-OSMIUM)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Just another small problem in my life 07/24/2014

This review is from: Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Red Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Blue Back-lit (GK-OSMIUM)

Pros: Lighting is attractive when it works
Covenient physical volume knobs are good things
Wife loves Cherry MX Red keys

Cons: Lights turn off for no reason
Keyboard disconnects for no apparent reason

Other Thoughts: Given all the the wife has to get frustrated about with PCs, I just don't think I should have to hear about her keyboard of all things. I don't know if there are issues with power management on the USB ports, or something in the design of the Osmium, but this thing sporadically goes dark and disconnects without visible cause. Gigabyte's online help seems difficult to access and I just don't have time to overcome it. So Gigabyte is off the list, and I guess I'm going to drop another C-note on a replacement.

PLANTRONICS GameCom Commander Circumaural Limited Edition Tournament Gaming Headset OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Heavy, but impressive realism 05/19/2014

This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom Commander Circumaural Limited Edition Tournament Gaming Headset OEM

Pros: Everything sounds so real. With VOIP, sounds like the other people talking are inside your skull. Really well constructed.

Cons: Quite heavy and not as cushioned around the ears.
Normal price is probably 3x too high.

Other Thoughts: Got this for my wife who, against all odds, has become an avid MMOFPS player. My current point of reference is my Fatal1ty headset. When I switch over to her GameCom Commander I am struck by the weight of the whole thing. I can feel it pushing on the top of my head, pulling down on the skin around my ears, and pushing a little bit on my ears from the outside. That is compared to the Fatal1ty which is on-ear and very cushioned.

But as soon as someone shoots or talks, the real difference comes through -- voices in your head so clear you might think your are just schizophrenic, and other sounds really full and cleanly expressed.

I'm not an audiophile, but for what it's worth I would certainly consider these if they were deeply discounted again, on the strength of quality sound and construction.

DIYPC MiniQ7-W USB 3.0 w/Dual White Fans White SECC ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This probably saved me $80 because I could fit an existing ATX mobo in this mATX sized case. Small size was my goal, so that was great. Plus, at $40 with free shipping, it seemed like a pretty good value to me. I think the color and jewel-like on-button will appeal to women in a way glowing black and red boxes do not. I had no problem assembling my simple build.

Cons: I think I needed one more standoff than was provided. A couple more zip ties and places to attach them would be nice. It is a little unsturdy overall, as would be expected for the price. I'm not a huge fan of CDR pop-open doors. A couple more zip ties

Other Thoughts: Hey manufacturers, how about making one small-and-light case for each form factor with room only for mobo, large video card, perhaps on a riser, and one SSD. Just vent all the way around and put a 12" fan on one side.
