Monoprice 3.5mm Stereo Plug to 2.5mm Stereo Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated

1 out of 5 eggs Doesn't work in how it should 04/27/2016

This review is from: Monoprice 3.5mm Stereo Plug to 2.5mm Stereo Jack Adaptor - Gold Plated

Pros: None sadly

Cons: This was bundled with an Xbox 360 headset. I understand TRRS and the rings and know it could only handle 2 channels. Regardless, I plugged in a smaller 2.5mm jack and it just falls out. No grip. I've wired some of these myself so I can see the contacts inside but none of them are pressed out enough to form any connection.

Other Thoughts: I logged in simply to try to exchange it. That isn't even an option so it's a straight up waste of life.

Panasonic K-KJ17MCA4BA eneloop Advanced 4-position Charger & 4-pack AA New 2100 Cycles Rechargeable Batteries

Pros: Got these as an alternative to a dedicated Xbox one charger. I just got my xbox and I'm pumping in a good 4 hours a week day and 12+ on weekends and I just had to swap the batteries out a 3rd time yesterday. I always meant to look into using rechargeable batteries and this is definitely a bonus.
I leave 2 ready and once I get a low battery warning, pop it out, put the others in, slap the used ones into the charger and let it go. Just got a 2nd controller so now looking to get another 4x AA and maybe some AAA for back ups.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Definitely an excellent alternative to dedicated xbox 1 chargers. Some use the micro USB slot which is a not very durable and will break the connector with little effort. Some require a special battery and cover to plug into a charging stand, so no good when still wanting to game. This is perfect as you can have an extra set charge as you play. And obviously the batteries aren't restricted to just Xbox use.

Pros: Got this 2 months to replace sli 260gtx that were just getting old, loud and hot.
Got the rebate with no headache as opposed to some reviews. Was playing Planetside2 when i got it, which helped but that game is bottlenecked by cpu more than anything. Now playing FFXIV and its been smooth. Need to check as only slows down with a lot of other players but not card related as in game stuff starts to act weird, unclickable, names not displaying. I'll need some more testing but so far so good.

Cons: I never really checked for heat but when I went to relog into FFXIV, i went to grab my phone sitting on the tower for the softtoken when I noticed how much heat was coming out of the top. Only difference being the card, that narrowed it down. I observed for a few days when i remembered the tweak app was set to auto. Looks like it sat at 30% or so. I manual adjusted to 65% and top fans on my case weren't exhausting hot air as before.
