GIGABYTE GV-N970G1 GAMING-4GD GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs everything I've been throwing at it flawlessly
Quiet
Looks great in case with the lit up "Windforce" logo

Cons: The moment I read that the card is actually 3.5g, all of my games suddenly looked like they were running on Commodore 64 graphics. I am infuriated, and all of the smooth gameplay and crispness I was granted when I was FALSELY lead to believe that it was a 4g card went out the window. Everyone grab your torches and pitchforks right now, and let us march to Nvidia...

----Are they gone?--- Great!

In all seriousness, I have no cons for this card. The only thing is my CPU, which is causing a serious bottleneck in certain games, but that's not the card's fault.

Other Thoughts: For those dealt a serious blow and are crushed by the 3.5 fiasco, put some peel and stick flames on the case. It'll really help.

CORSAIR GS series GS800 800W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready Factory Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: LED color and change option was cool
The intermittent fan was nice and quiet
Had enough juice for what I needed

Cons: Died after a month of use. It first started cutting off after several hours, then fewer hours, then eventually about 10 minutes. Had to RMA it, and I'm still waiting for the "new" one to return.

Other Thoughts: Currently using my, now antique, Thermaltake 430w PSU as a backup, which has been in 4 rigs through it's life.

I would rate a bit higher because the RMA process was fairly simple, but my problem is that not only was the original PSU deemed "defective", then returned and "refurbished", but it is now being returned a third time to the factory for more issues. What does it take to get a functioning PSU?

PLANTRONICS GameCom 85750-01 3.5mm Connector Circumaural 307 Stereo Gaming Headsets
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic sound quality... with a catch... 08/02/2014

This review is from: PLANTRONICS GameCom 85750-01 3.5mm Connector Circumaural 307 Stereo Gaming Headsets

Pros: -As title says, fantastic sound quality with great bass
-Comfortable
-Good mic

Cons: -The wire build quality, and volume control box
-Above ^ x100

Other Thoughts: Just a heads up, the Plantronics .audio 355 is the exact same model as this, and is about $12 cheaper. Only difference is this one has cloth ear cushions, and the red trim pieces.

Over the past 8 years, I've owned and went through about 6 or 7 of these headsets. I'm not hard on them, but I'm not really easy on them either, and they certainly get used.

Normally one would give up and perhaps get a better quality one, right? But no, because I still cannot find a better sounding headset. After my second one broke (right speaker on both just died), I tried the more expensive brands (turtle beach, steel series, etc), but they didn't come even close to the sound quality of these cheap little things. I even bought the big brother of this model (gamecom 780), but they didn't pack the punch the 307 delivers.

I don't know what the manufacture uses for the speakers, but they're doing it right. I ONLY wish they put the same amount of effort into the wire and volume control box. Every pair I get usually gets me about a year of use, and they all either die from the volume box shorting out, or the right speaker starts to cut out....and it's ALWAYS the right speaker. I'm guessing the left speaker gets jealous of the right one for some reason, and assassinates it at some point.
