JBL Synchros S300 Premium On-Ear Headphones for iOS with built-in remote/Microphone - Black/Blue
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: They do a good job of sealing out most ambient noise. The detachable cord is great if you're prone to snagging. It'll disconnect from either the device or the headphone (or both) if you get it caught on something, saving the cord from damage. The iOS controls work as prescribed and call quality is exemplary. Ear cups swivel so it'll lay flat, which is great for packing them away.

Cons: They could be a little bigger. I have them pulled all the way out and I wish they went another click or two.

Other Thoughts: I had $300 noise-cancelling headphones that went belly up and I vowed I wouldn't spend that much on headphones again. I tried a few others, but wound up giving them away because they fell short in one way or another. I picked these up on a shell-shocker and they turned out to be the best sounding, best looking, best featured headphones in the sub-$100 category. I wound up getting two more for the wife and daughter. One of my dogs chewed the cord on mine. I contacted JBL/Harmon and they said "sorry, you're on your own". Wow, okay. I found a 2.5mm/3.5mm cord with iOS controls for another brand. It worked just fine. Oh, hey... Everyone complaining that they're not loud enough... They're $30 headphones. That's like complaining that your Kia isn't as fast as a Corvette. Buy Bose, Beats or something else if you need to deafen yourself.

Rosewill RCAB-11010 65 ft. Black USB2.0 Active Extension Cable Supports Windows 7, Gold Plated, Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plays nicely with Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit versions), no quirkiness or failures.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: In my house, the HTPC is just out of range of my wireless keyboard/mouse when comfortably sitting on my sofa. By using this extension and routing the cable around the perimeter of the room, the receiver is now next to the sofa. No more problems when trying to navigate Windows Media Center or searching Netflix or Hulu.

Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 Plus Bronze ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powers the modest requirements of my HTPC.

Cons: After about a week, the fan became noisy (like a bad bearing). Give it a whack, it quiets down for a while. Since I'm not fond of hitting my PC, I'm not pleased with this condition.

Other Thoughts: Silence is golden, so no gold for this power supply. I had really hoped it was a case fan or the CPU fan making the noise, but those weren't the culprits. Nuts.
