This review is from: E8 v3 D4 - Sundown Audio 8" 300W RMS Dual 4-Ohm E Series V3 Subwoofer
Pros: This sub puts out lots of clean bass. I was very pleased with the output from it. I used to run two 15" JLw0 subs at 450W RMS, so I'm used to HUGE bass. I was just looking to add some low end to my stock F150 system and was pleasantly surprised. I put this sub in a .3 cu/ft sealed enclosure (after sub displacement). It shakes the mirrors and gives a nice strong punch to the chest.
Cons: It's heavy? lol
Other Thoughts: I was really pleased with the clarity of this sub. I always preferred bigger subs, but this has shown me you can get big clean bass from an 8" sub. I had it hooked up to a 500W RMS Alpine amp. Unfortunately I lost the amp when I went to test one of my OLD 15's on it and the 15 couldn't take it. So, I'm going to build a ported home theater box for it and see how this sub does there. BTW, Woofers Etc was great. I ordered the wrong ohm sub and they changed it to the one I needed. They also answered some other questions I had. Sub came in a VERY sturdy box.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset - Xbox One (Black)
Pros: First of all, sound is great. That's well established. What's not so great? The mic, the build quality and the customer service.
Cons: First headset, mic stopped working. Sent it back to Astro and they send me a headset that sounds like the mic was in my mouth at all times. Send that back to Astro and they send me a headset that sounds like the mic is being screamed into (distortion). Send that back to Astro and they send me back the headset saying there's "not anything they can find". I have two a50's btw, and the other so far is ok, though the mic leaves a bit to be desired. Finally Astro says they'll replace the headset and they send me back THE SAME EXACT HEADSET! Fortunately they paid for all the shipping, but I'm still stuck with a headset no one wants to use. I might stick it on the home theater to listen to movies when it's just me. The mic is unusable.
Both A50's I have pick up any kind of air noise, like a ceiling fan on low, so it doesn't take much. The troubled one is awful in this respect. The good one is "tolerable" in that respect.
Other Thoughts: If you care about mic quality, or you use a fan of any sort, I'd spend you're money elsewhere. If you really only care about sound quality, it's ok, but you can get better for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great on power at idle.
Not a bad card really.
In SLI this would probably be great with 3x1080p monitors.
Cons: Was hoping for a little more. At 1440p I'd go for the 670 or 770, both are better than this. See other thoughts...
Other Thoughts: I got this as a Warranty exchange for a GTX580 1.5gb. On paper this is on par with that, and it is mostly. I still feel the 580 is overall a stronger card. I "had" 2 580's fortunately not in SLI but I was hoping I could do that in the future as I upgraded. I also have a GTX670 2gb and that card is better than this one in every respect. I'd have to say by at least %30. You can still get the 670 for less than this one. The 770 will blow this away. Also after testing at 1440p nothing used more than 2gb VRAM. I also noticed it states that 2gb is dedicated and 2gb is shared. Whatever that means, might be more for SLI? I'll probably put this in my HTPC as I have room and it's got good power consumption on idle. Hopefully nvidia has the sound over HDMI issues worked out with this. The GTX670 wouldn't always turn on the sound over HDMI when the TV came on.READ FULL REVIEW
