This review is from: Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones (Black)
Pros: Fantastic headphones, everything in the other reviews is true about the sound of these, so clear and crisp highs, deep bass but not too much, sounds in the music I never heard with other headphones. I've tested Beats Pro and Beats Studio and compared to Audio-Technica they are like garbage. I've had the Sennheiser HD-280 pro for a long time and they also have great sound, but these Audio-Technica beat the Sennheiser in sound and build quality, they cost about $50 more but it is worth it. There are probably better headphones than these but they cost a lot more than $130 that I paid for them on sale.
Cons: The only con I have is that they have a lot of pressure on my ears when wearing them for a long time and my head is not very big, maybe it's my ears because I have the same problem with most other headphones too. But I'm so happy with the sound that I'll take the pain just to be able to enjoy the sound of these :)
Other Thoughts: If you can get them on sale just go for it, you can't go wrong.
Also you're going to need a good sound card to be able to enjoy these headphones. I personally use Creative Sound Blaster Extreme Gamer which is 5-7 years old but still great sound card, other people use Asus Xonar series, but if you have just on board sound card don't expect to hear the fantastic sound of the Audio-Technica.
This review is from: Tek Republic TIU-3000 3.5" Front Panel USB 3.0 2-Port Hub
Pros: It works, but I wouldn't buy it again
Cons: It is 3.5" and it looked like 5.25" on the picture, I have 4- 5,25" bays available and just 2- 3.5" one of them has 1 SSD and I put the hub in the second one, but if I want to put another HDD or SSD it's not possible. It'is in the description that is 3.5" but I didn't look at it, I just saw the pictures and the good reviews.
The screws are not solid steel, very soft, they hold the hub, but I don't like em.
Not easy to install, it took me 30 minutes for something that should take 5-10 minutes.
Other Thoughts: For the $7 on sale price it is not too bad if you need the front USB3 ports.
If you have a case without 3.5" available bay, you can't install it.
Pros: Performs as expected - Rise of the Tomb Raider 111 FPS average, Batman Arkham Knight 104 FPS average,@1080P without overclocking
Build quality is solid
Looks nice and has a back plate
Coolers work fine although I only have it for 1 day :)
Price was the best for in stock at the time of purchase 419.99 and free shipping
Cons: It is not $380 MSRP as Nvidia mentioned it will be. I couldn't wait for the price to drop, maybe in 6 months it will be.
Two 8 pin power connectors instead of one 8 pin and one 6 pin, but I was lucky my power supply is also EVGA so it has two 8 pin connectors, adapter cables are included in the box for whoever needs it.
It is very big and heavy it barely fit in my case, so it was not easy to install, but once installed it runs fine.
Other Thoughts: The card is very nice and it looks better than the pictures, I liked the MSI GTX 1070 more, but this one was less expensive and with free shipping, so I don't regret choosing it. For 1080P gaming I could have gotten GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480 which also preform great at 1080P, but I think the GTX 1070 will perform great and longer before I have to buy a new one, and the stock availability was very limited for the other cards so I just couldn't wait, also it is good to have 6 teraflops GPU power :) The Radeon RX 490 will probably have similar performance as the GTX 1070 at a lower price, so it is a shame that AMD always can't release their cards in time to compete with Nvidia. Coming from GTX 760 this card is great I hope it will last for 3 years before I have to buy another.READ FULL REVIEW
