This review is from: JVC HA-RX700 Stereo Headphone
Pros: Lightweight for it's size. Durable enough construction that has lasted for over a year of consistent use. Reasonably good sound. Very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
Cons: Low frequency sound probably won't blow you away. Build quality perfectly fine for average use, but don't expect these to be built like a tank. I won''t be taking eggs off for these. If I wanted a top of the line headphone set, then I should have coughed up the money.
Other Thoughts: Very good headphones for the price, and perfectly adequate for day to day use. Audio quality is always going to be subjective. If you;re an audiophile that's very picky about sound, then you should probably move on. II found that these are fine for gaming and watching moves. I've owned headphones in the past that I thought had better bass response, but those headphone also cost me allot more. They do, what I'd consider to be, an average job at shielding out ambient sounds. If you're using these in a loud environment, then your probably going to have a to turn up the volume a little. I remember first getting these from Newegg, and I the build quality might suffer since the price was pretty low. But I've have these for over a year now, and use them daily. Zero issues with the cabling or frame. No sound issues either. The bottom of the right cup has a very small tear, but this can be caused by just regular use. In the end, I'm happy I bought these.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SABRENT SBT-STDB IDE Ultra ATA-100/133 to SATA Port Mini Converter
Pros: I have a couple of older computers I keep around just to tinker with. This worked fine connecting an old WD Caviar drive to an even older beige G3.
Cons: The pics all fit well, but the device it fairly delicate. Playing around with the G3 bit, I removed and installed the device a few times over without any issues, but it needs to be done carefully. On the sata side, I need to gently use a thin blade to wedge the device apart from the drive.
I leave the drive jumper-less and use the jumpers on the board.
Other Thoughts: It seems like the reviews are really at odds here. It might be a problem inherent in hardware adapters, and just getting old, incompatible hardware to work together. Or, perhaps there really is a problem with with them manufacturing this product consistenly. I really can't say for sure since I own only one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series CP1350AVRLCD UPS
Pros: Unfortunately I live in a rural area where the infrastructure isn't as up too par as I'd like. Before buying this, I had lost multiple pieces of equipment over the years. Graphics cards, hard drives, RAM, power supply, and eventually a whole motherboard. While I cannot claim with absolute ceratainty that all of those were due to voltage spikes or brownouts, I can say that I've had this UPS for close to a year now and all my electrical problems have vanished.
In addition to the poor electrical service during adverse conditions, there are full power outages due to winter storms here. There already has been several instances this winter where I needed to do a full shutdown, and the Cyberpower UPS did it's job.
Cons: None. It works exactly as advertised.
Other Thoughts: My stereo, computer, PS3, and 42" LCD monitor are all hooked into the fused portion. Minus the PS3, the rest have been on during an outage. As I recall, I had approximately ten minutes to turn everything off, signifigantly more with the LCD off. More than enough time for me.READ FULL REVIEW
