Pros: -I don't know their regular price, but what I got them for was less than what you'd spend at a decent fast food place. They're cheap.
-Build quality. Braided cable AND wooden construction? These things feel very high quality. Some of the more expensive earbuds that I've purchased don't have these features.
-Sound. I am by no means an audiphile, but I like my stuff to sound good. I have a relatively expensive set of headphones for my desktop (Audiotechnica ATH M-50's), and a nice pair of bluetooth earbuds, but I figured I'd get these as a backup set for either. Wow. These blew away my expectations. Granted, they're not perfect. The EQ is kinda weird, and they are noticeably different sounding than my other sets, but nothing particularly bad. I give the sound a 4/5 but the price and build quality make my overall rating a 5/5.
Cons: -For the price, literally none.
Other Thoughts: I originally only bought these because I didn't want to drag my big headphones to school and back, and my bluetooth earbuds don't like to play well with my laptop, so if I ever needed to watch a video for a class or anything on my laptop, I wouldn't be able to. So these were originally bought with just the intention of using them with my laptop when my nicer buds wouldn't connect. But I will probably be using these for general listening more than I thought I would be.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
Pros: Are you still using that frayed old thing with coffee stains and scratches all over it to put your mouse on? Or are you even *gasp* using your bare desk?! Stop. You stop right there. You may not think there is a problem with what you are doing, but believe me, there is. Once you get a nice, giant pad like this with a perfect cloth surface, it will feel like dragging the mouse across sandpaper the next time you try to use anything else.
Seriously, this thing was the solution to a problem I never realized I had. I mean, who gets picky about their mouse pad, right? Well, now you do. Because this thing rocks and you'll feel out of place whenever you try to use anything else.
Also, do you put your phone on your desk and then get startled by it's deafening vibration against the surface when you get a text? WELL NOT ANYMORE. Because this thing is so freakin huge, there's plenty of room to put your phone on it to, so it doesn't feel like an earthquake every time your mom texts you.
Use it as a coaster! No seriously. And then when it gets gross just run it through the washing machine. I've done this twice and haven't noticed any degradation of the material.
Cons: -Logo is big. I kind of remember it smelling for a bit after first opening. It completely went away, though.
Other Thoughts: They give you a sticker. To advertise to your friends how sweet of a mousepad you have. It's that serious.
Also, just ordered a second one to put under my keyboard so I can have one gigantic MegaMat. Mostly because it was on sale.
Pros: -Aesthetics: Looks mean and serious with a little bit of party on the edges. Love it.
-Performance: I didn't actually test this, but it feels like it moves quite a bit of air on the back exhaust of my case, even on low RPM's
-Noise: Seriously minimal. I have it in my Define R4 with all my other fans turned down and I can't hear anything. It's delightfully quiet as long as you have software/fan controller. Running at max RPM is noticeable but not infuriating unless you're a silence freak.
-Price: Priced competitively, and a killer deal when on sale. I've gotten 3 of these fans, each on a different special. Keep your eyes on the price.
Cons: Honestly, none.
Other Thoughts: Please do not run this off of the included 4pin to Molex adapter. It will run it at full RPMs all the time, and somewhat ruins the entire point of this fan, which is to be SILENT.READ FULL REVIEW
