SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Pro 3.5mm Connector Canal Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Best I've ever used 08/17/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Pro 3.5mm Connector Canal Headset

Pros: These earbuds or headset or whatever you call them are great in my opinion. I've never owned an expensive set of earbuds. I usually spend big money on "over the ear" headphones and these sound like I've got a really nice set of full size headphones on. Bass is very good...not subwoofer good but you're talking a speaker the size of your pinkie fingernail so for the size it's great. I love the ability to use these on my computer using the standard headphone/microphone jacks as well as my smartphone when I'm at the gym to listen to music. They come with a really nice small zippered case with a pocket inside to carry the different sizes of rubber tips and the PC or 3.5mm connector. One of the tips included is made of the a high density foam similar to memory foam and when used will cancel out any outside noise. These are really nice and work great but you don't want to remove them once in because it's kind of a job to get them in correctly. They'd be great if you're by yourself doing something like running on a treadmill.

I've also tried these out on the computer as a headset while using Rosetta Stone. The program requires that you speak back to the computer in the language you're learning. These worked wonderful for that. Much less cumbersome that using a headset. I could see these as just perfect for gaming and I'm guessing that's the market the designers were aiming for.

Overall I'm very happy with these and love using them.

Cons: I really can't think of anything bad to say about these. I guess I could say that it'd be nice if the cord was longer. My PC isn't sitting right in front of me so it was a stretch getting them from the floor to my ears. I assume most people would be using these with a smartphone or laptop and not a huge issue for most people. The newegg description also says that they are 9.8 feet long which is far from the truth. I think they are actually 1.2 meters which would be just under 4 feet.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a nice headphone but hate using those big heavy "over the ears" models I would highly recommend these for you.

Nyrius Aries NPCS549 Prime Wireless HDMI Transmitter & Receiver for HD 1080p 3D Video Streaming
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great solution if you want to connect you computer so that it outputs to the television or another monitor...or whatever. Setup was super easy. All I needed to do was plug the dongle into the HDMI port on my video card on my desktop and plug the main unit into the television or monitor. Once connected you simply need to turn on the compute and it, for me, automatically synced the two together and I was up and running. I tried this out using netflix on the computer to a non-smart tv so the I could watch a show or two. This worked perfectly for that. I can say that I was impressed for with this than my Chromecast dongle since what ever I display on my computer I can display on my television so that made watching Youtube videos actually easier.

So overall I was impressed with the ease of setting up and no jumping through hoops with drivers or software to deal with.

Also, I was impressed with the packaging. The unit came with a large variety of options for installing including power supplies (2) and mini-USB connections if you want to draw power from the computer. It also came with a 90 degree HDMI connector.

Cons: First thing I noticed that made me question the 1080p claim is when I connected my computer to the television, which has the same resolution as my computer screen, I noticed how blurry the screen was. It was obvious that the output was way under 1080p and I'm guessing it was outputting 760p. Also, there was a lot of lag. The lag wasn't super noticeable but I could tell it was there. It was like watching a movie where the voice doesn't quite match the lip movement.

The next item that bothered me about this thing is the quality of the mold used to create the enclosures. For the price they're asking for this I would expect this thing to look a lot nicer. It looks more like they took a standard enclosure mold and modified it "on the cheap" to work with this model.

Lastly, the thing runs really hot! I noticed when I went to move the unit connected to the television that it was hot to the touch. I own one of those infrared temperature devices and tested it on this after I'd watched a couple of youtube videos and it was running around 148 degrees F and after sitting for awhile it returned down to around 120 degrees at idle. This seems really hot to me and made me worry that it was going to melt or damage the furniture it was sitting on.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think there is a place for this device and some people will love this if they have need of it. I really don't see a lot of reasons I'd want one for the price. Much cheaper to buy a 25 foot HDMI cable if I want to connect a couple pieces of electronics together.

5 out of 5 eggs Great No Frills PSU 06/24/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Elite Power - 460W Power Supply

Pros: Very nice PSU that runs very quiet and has standard length cables.

Cons: Cables aren't wrapped so some may not think it's organized looking but I prefer this style. So far I would recommend this PSU.

Other Thoughts: This was a replacement for an older computer build I have. Reviews are good so I hope this will last a long time.
