This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - White
Pros: - Most importantly, sounds great
- Looks cool
- Mic is good for gaming
- The LEDs look cool
- Easy to setup
- Easy to use
- Corsair ecosystem
- NO WIRES
Cons: - PC only...
- Wireless range can cut out if I run to the restroom wearing it (30 feet?)
- The mic is great for gaming but not the best in the world if you're looking for audio chocolate.
- The LEDs are cool but I can't see my ears.
Other Thoughts: Ok, so I want to start off with saying I really liked the headset. It's light, looks good, it's comfortable over long periods of time, it sounds good, and the mic works fine for voice comms.
I have a few minor complaints. I can't see my ears and my wife doesn't care how cool my headset looks, the LEDs really don't do much but drain battery. They are cool though.
I can't use this with my phone. This is a big push from a lot of companies lately as people move more and more into the mobile world, I was a bit disappointed.
I can't really tell how many .1s these are. Listen, these sound really good, but if you REALLY care, I have no real way of telling you how surround soundish the surround sound is. You can't match having a room full of speakers, obviously, so I don't really think it matters.
These are probably fine for twitch/voice comms. If you want to record music, really you need to get a condenser mic or something though. That being said, these sound great for what they are (I used to use a rockband mic).
The end verdict: I like them, I recommend them. If you are in the market for a gaming wireless headset, you can't go wrong with Corsair.
Pros: - Awesome packaging
- Good concept
- Good design
- Easy to install
- Good instructions
- LEDs on the cooler
- Well made
Cons: - When I unsleep/power up the fans go to max and turn my room into a tornado for a few seconds
Other Thoughts: I installed this bad boy into a Phanteks Pro M with absolutely no issues. It came with everything I needed, and according to the internet the thermal paste on the cooling block is top tier so I didn't even need to worry about it. The instructions walked me right through the setup and I encountered absolutely no issues or hiccups.
The cpu block has some LEDs you can configure with the software, and you can set constant, music, or temperature for the colors. It's really nice and looks great.
The included fans run very well, but like I mentioned above it will go to full power when I resume/power up and it is amazingly loud for a few seconds. I am not sure if it is an issue with the software, my board, or what.
The tubes were a bit longer than I needed but not really an issue.
This is used with a Z710 chipset and skylake 6600k overclocked to 4.5Ghz. I chill at about 25c with a slight increase when used.
Highly recommended for power users, gamers, and overclockers. It's an extremely quiet and efficient way to cool your system, and is a solid investment.
This review is from: TP-LINK TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: - It handles DOCSIS 3.0 traffic very well
- Easy to set up. Just call your ISP and give them the MAC or use the website.
- On paper it's faster than ISP models, but my service isn't above 300MBs so I can't tell.
Cons: - This has wall mount holes, but they are on the bottom... if you mount this it's sticking straight out of the wall.
- The power brick is huge.
Other Thoughts: This was hard for me to use. While on paper it should work fine with Cox, they won't activate it. At least not in my area. I tried a couple different people to see if I could sneak it in, no dice. Luckily I had a friend with Comcast and I was able to put it through its paces.
Installation is easy.
1) Let your ISP know you have a new modem.
2) Shut down your router (if you have one).
3) Plug this into your router, screw in the coax.
4) Turn on your modem first, then you're router.
After everything powered on it was in action. The speed tests were very similar to the model it replaced, as both units were DOCSIS 3.0. For anyone who doesn't know ,DOCSIS 3.0 lets your modem use 8 downstream channels and 4 upstream. So if you have an old 2.0 model and are experiencing slow downs when you know your speed should be fast, I really suggest upgrading to 3.0 (as long as your ISP supports it)
My biggest complaint about this modem is that the wall mount screws are on the bottom. I wall mount all my stuff to save space, and my modem/router sits flush against the wall, it's great. Not so much with this. If you put it on the wall it's going to stick out 8 inches. It looks ridiculous, just like the soda can routers from some manufacturers. There's absolutely no reason it should be set up like that.
If you have cable service and need/rent a modem, buy this. It will work well for you. Before you get it though, make sure your ISP will turn it on for you. Even thought it SHOULD work, it doesn't mean they will let you.
4/5 eggs for the weird design, the huge power brick, and no cox support.
