Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Better off spending a little more 07/04/2014

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: - Inexpensive (Ordered mine while 50% off)
-Works well enough

Cons: -Feels very flimsy
- Stopped working within the manufacturers warranty, and any attempts to send it in have ended in a dead end. For some reason they're not honoring the warranty since I didn't purchase it from a certain competitor supposedly.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for an inexpensive headset this one isn't too bad, but it's not great by any means and don't even bother getting a warranty on it. I suppose if you can get it during a sale it's a nice backup headset in case your main one breaks for some reason.

3 out of 5 eggs Leaves Some to be Desired 12/27/2013

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: For the price, even if it's not on sale, the headset is comfortable and feels loose so that I can't imagine anyone's ears being squeezed or pressed like some headsets cause.

Cons: I'm unsure if I just have some defect in the headset I received or if this is the case with a decent amount of them, but I've had a lot of issues with the mic. For one, it cuts out very frequently so the end of my sentences are cut off. Unplugging and replugging the mic input wire into the mobo is a fix, that while temporarily, works for a an hour which is usually long enough for any gaming I'm doing. Sometimes though, I'll have to unplug it about every 10 minutes so I'm not having 20-70% of what I'm saying cut out.

Other Thoughts: I still gave it 3 eggs because I have a feeling I just got a defective headset and everything else about it is still quite nice for $50. Regardless, I'll be going with a different brand for a replacement soon.

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Speed
-Much better than AMD processors of a similar price.

Cons: -There is nothing wrong with this cpu in any sense. I wouldn't mind if it cost a little less, but you get the quality for what you pay and this is a just a great cpu.

Other Thoughts: Intel made a great cpu, if you're looking a this vs a i7 definitely go with the i5 (there's a new one out now so might as well buy that one). But the difference between the i5 and i7 is very little, yet the cost is large. IMO just get the i5 and replace it when the next one comes out, or the one after that. It won't cost much more than just buying an i7 in the first place but that new one will be much better than an i7 which is by that time 2 years older.
