Corsair H2100 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Good entry level gaming headset 02/05/2015

This review is from: Corsair H2100 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: The Corsair H2100 Gaming headset is a good entry level wireless gaming headset for the cost. The package contains the headset, a USB receiver, a USB extension cable for the receiver, a USB charging cable, a quick start guide, a safety leaflet, a warranty guide, and an Australian specific warranty card. Overall the sound quality is ok (notes in the cons section). These would be good for casual gaming, 2 way communication during games, or movie watching on a budget. The construction quality seems pretty good as well.

The pairing of the receiver to the headset was painless. The volume knob on the headset controls your PC’s volume level.

The Optional software gives you a bit more control of the headset as far as sound quality goes and allows you to setup profiles for various uses.

To mute the mic just swing the mic boom up.

Cons: Heavy bass, treble lacking.

There is a noticeable rattle in my right ear during prolonged low bass. (Maybe a flaw in the speaker?)

I can’t reboot my laptop with the USB receiver installed as it locks up my machine.

Surround sound isn’t quite what I have come to expect from a gaming headset. If someone is behind me in a game I really can’t tell by listening.

Other Thoughts: If you are a serious about sound quality and after a reference set of headphones these are not for you. If you want a decent low price set of wireless headphones for gaming then I highly recommend you try these out.

DEEPCOOL Multi Core X8 Laptop Cooling Pad 17
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The Deep Cool Multi Core x8 Laptop Cooling pad has some nice features not found in other cooling pads. For one you have 4 very quiet fans with a selector to choose the bottom two, top two, or all four. The design allows for adequate air flow know matter how flat-bottomed your laptop/notebook is, and there is a pass-through USB port available if so you don't have to sacrifice a port in order to use the pad.

Cons: Heavy and thick. At just over an inch thick this will raise your laptop/notebook quite a bit off the desk, you may have to change your typing posture. I typically use a laptop with a docking station and extended sheet battery. This cooling pad with the tilt legs extended sit at the same height as my keyboard (without even having a laptop/notebook on top of it.

Other Thoughts: This is a good cooling pad and I would recommend for those who use their laptop/notebook for gaming or functions have cause high CPU usage. I would not purchase this if you are planning on traveling with it.

TP-LINK TL-SG108E 8-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch, 8 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 Ports, MTU/Port/Tag-Based VLAN, QoS and IGMP
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The TP-LINK TL-SG108E seems to be a well-built switch with an option to operate as a managed switch. The box contains the switch, AC adaptor, quick start guide, a resource cd, and stick-on rubber feet. The switch has a metal frame and measures 6.2”x4”x1”. If you want to run this as an 8-port Gigabit switch just plug it in and go. However, if you want to configure it to act as a managed switch, complete with V-Lans, trunk groups, port mirroring, and DHCP just pop in the cd and install the included management software. The TP-Link “Easy Smart Configuration Utility” has a nice interface and functions well. Speeds test well and I have not experienced any issues with this switch during my initial testing.

Cons: Included CD is of the 3.5” style. This is nice for packaging but if you don’t have a cd rom bay that can utilize this size (some laptops with electronic insert and eject for cd’s) it may be an issue for you.
No Ethernet cable included, although this seems to be becoming the norm.

Other Thoughts: This is a pretty robust switch for the price.
