This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: Beautiful sound. The ear cups are really comfortable, and cut out the majority of ambient sound. Easy to use. I downloaded the accompanying software off Corsair's site, so I'm getting simulated 7.1. Noticeable difference between just plain stereo.
Cons: When you have the dongle plugged in, your normal speakers are disabled (at least I couldn't find a way to have them both active). Set the earphones to the default sound device, and when you unplug the dongle, your regular speakers will be the fallback device. Wish they would BOTH play the sound at the same time, and I could just turn the headphones off instead of having to mess with the dongle.
Other Thoughts: Kind of heavy, but I guess when it comes to speakers and headphones, the heaver the magnets, the better the sound. Takes up 2 USB ports, one for the dongle, one for charging. If you have lots (my system has like 14), no big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill NEC 4+1 Ports USB 2.0 PCIE Card Model RC-503
Pros: - Needed extra USB 2.0 ports, and this card does the trick.
- PCIEx1 interface, small form factor, fits nicely between my SLI setup.
Cons: - Getting a molex connector routed to it was "interesting", would be nice if it didn't want one. But it does allow for USB-powered devices w/o taxing the PCI bus.
Other Thoughts: - Would have LOVED to have found a card with 2 or more INTERNAL USB headers, but this one got me across the finish line.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Installed easy, just need a mobo USB internal connector.
- Included Y-cable long enough to reach in a large case.
- Card slots seem to give a good grip when inserting a card, no loose connections.
Cons: - Price, but I'm betting you get what you pay for here. May outlast everything else in this build!
Other Thoughts: Card slots and front USB port all working with no issues so far.READ FULL REVIEW
