This review is from: Corsair H2100 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
Good clear sound.
Good sound isolation.
Enough range to be used around a small house/medium apartments
Cons: Battery lasts around 8 hours.
While we are able to use it while plugged in, the usb port is located on the left side, causing the cable to run past you. (assuming your pc is to your right as a standard)
Biggest gripe would be its poor driver. In order to use your headset, you must go to sound settings and set it as default device every single time. The software does not automatically detect headset being used.
Other Thoughts: I did not buy it through NewEgg as I had a giftcard elsewhere.
I wish it had some sort of a programmable button to use for push to talk or other similar features. I dont hear much difference with 7.1 emulated than with what can be achieved through software and lesser headsets. As with every headset, there is a subtle hiss.
Overall I dont feel it replaces something like Hyperx, but rather compliments it. Regardless im pleased with the product.
This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable
Pros: I like some of the android apps and games but utterly hate touch screen controls. The key mapping although not perfect, generally solves this issue for me.
One of the best console emulators I have tried!
Very fast and responsive. Faster than my wifes note 3
Another issue I have with gaming on android devices is they tend to get hot. Piercing heat that makes my joints ache somehow. With built in fan, Im not bothered with heat buildup whatsoever!
This thing is sturdy!
While lacking any sort of Bass, the front speakers are very loud!
Cons: An owner since 12/6/ 2013 today is when my device broke down :(
Con#1 Biggest gripe is after extended use the rubber shell cover on the handles, back and d stick tend to absorb oils and moisture and in turn get gummy and soggy... It got so bad that I had to scrape this gunk from the case.. Please use better quality rubber or none at al next time Nvidia!
Con#2 the screen feels low quality... It should have been larger and at 1080 resolution. After using Note 3 my eyes hurt looking at Shields.
Con#3 Could not get the remote play function to work properly.. Router says 5 GHz frequency (RT-N56U) Shield says and acts like its 2.4 GHz... Shame
Con#4 I was hoping Id be able to use shield as a controller for PC..
Nvidia is stingy to let us have this feature..
Con#5 After nearly a year of use my micro usb port gave out and broke. Asking on the forum for help is pointless.. No replies
Other Thoughts: Hoping to figure out how to get the usb port fixed... Its perfectly functional and a waste to get another one because of something like this... Hoping Shield 2.0 comes out that addresses many of the mentioned gripesREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does exactly what you expect a SSD to do.. Fast
Cons: Failed after about 6 months of use. Blue screen of death galore even on fresh installation. The cause was apparently a built in expiration trigger that is designed to cause it to fail after 5 years.
Other Thoughts: Companies really need to stop with this nonsenseREAD FULL REVIEW
