This review is from: Pro Earhook Mini XLR TA4F Headworn Microphone For Shure Wireless Omnidirectional Mic
Pros: Fits virtually any head very well. Comfortable and easy to use for extended periods. Stays in position well. Reversible to place mic on left or right side of head. Mic is easily positioned.
Cons: Larger than acceptable noise floor, with much hiss.
Other Thoughts: We bought this to replace a headworn mic that only fit on one ear. That one frequently came loose while being used. This one stays in place very nicely since it hooks to both ears, but the noise floor is not acceptable. We've now mounted our old mic to the frame of this one, hopefully solving all the problems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, very light weight, somewhat customizable with available software from Logitech, good battery life.
Cons: Although their software promises that the F keys can ALL be modified or even returned to the normal F key functions, this isn't currently true. F10, F11 and F12 are permanently assigned as media controls for back, play/pause and forward, respectively. So if your software uses those F keys, you may be somewhat frustrated.
I frequently switch between normal and full-screen in IE with the F11 key, but with this keyboard I must add the FN key with my other hand. I also have other software that uses F11, so this might bug me more than other folks.
Also, even though it's illuminated very nicely, only those reassigned labels light up on the F keys. The F1 - F12 labels are added in an orange color which is invisible without direct light shining on the keyboard, and even then don't stand out at all.
Other Thoughts: People have been complaining to Logitech about these types of changes since they brought out their first Illuminated Keyboard, but they don't seem to listen at all. They do make occasional, seemingly random, changes. For example, this one has reassigned the F8 key to open IE to your home page. Their other illuminated keyboards have reassigned F1. Changing from one to another only leads to problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Spun up right away
Cons: Bearing noise was immediately extreme; much louder than the six-year-old fan (which ran 24/7) it was to replace! Have RMA'd and hopefully will get back one which is as quiet as other reviews implied.
Other Thoughts: This sounded like a very old sleeve bearing. It was among the loudest fan bearings I've ever heard, and was the first NEW fan I've bought ANYWHERE with nasty bearing noise.READ FULL REVIEW
