Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Not bad, Not great. 07/21/2013

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset

Pros: Audio Quality is pretty good and is very clear at high levels. The bass isn't amazing but it better than most headsets I've used. The wireless function is nice, while waiting to queue a game you can roam around the house and not miss a word your buddies in vent are saying. Range is decent, depends greatly on the location of you're usb receiver and the amount of walls.

Cons: Like others have mentioned, the quality of the build materials leaves a little to be desired. Those that put these on by holding the earpieces are all the ones with cracked plastic. Grab just above the earmuff on the band and I reckon you won't have cracked plastic above the muffs. On lower battery my mic quality goes down the drain and my buddies describe it as "disco" mode. At least the speakers are still crystal clear.

There also not anything close to comfortable compared to the Siberia v2 but those are the best I've worn. I'd rank these just above decent and almost good.

I wear glasses and they are fine with these btw.

Other Thoughts: If you're considering these, make sure the wireless function is why. That the only reason I've got left to keep these around. There's something about being able to run to the bathroom while waiting for respawn in dota 2 without missing anything. ;)

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I'll keep it simple. This motherboard is awesome. The 5 year warranty is by far the best part. You can only offer a 5 year warranty on a board you put the best components on. I'm an EE and the quality of this board gets my stamp of approval.

As always it was very easy to install and I haven't had a problem for 6+ months.

Cons: Price, except you really get what you pay for. The higher reliability of the components used on this board is well worth the price in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Reading through reviews today is more like sorting through garbage. If you're like me and read every review you can skip the rest and purchase this thing. I've built 200+ computer builds, ALL of them with ASUS motherboards. This is what I've put in my personal machine.

ASUS Zenbook UX31E-DH52 Intel Core i5 2nd Gen 2557M (1.70 GHz) 4 GB Memory 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 13.3

Pros: In order of amazement: Style, build quality, touchpad, sound, speed/performance, display resolution, battery life, size, extras included, ac adapter, USB 3.0, and it's not a Mac.

Cons: I'm not a fan of the stickers on the palm rest. I appreciate that they are on the mild side and silver but distract from rest of the design.

The silver script writing under the ASUS logo under the display feels out of place.

Obviously these are not deal breakers here.

Other Thoughts: I havn't had this very long and will include a more detailed review later. The touchpad though, is by far the best I've ever seen on a PC. The display resolution and speakers are remarkable considering its size. I can't comment on the pre-installed software because the first thing I booted to was a Windows 7 USB key to install a fresh copy.

I researched way too much before pushing the "add to cart" button so if you are in that boat, hopefully this will help:

(1) The touchpad issue is resolved with new drivers that came out Dec 2011. The touchpad functions much like the Mac touchpad, you can two finger right click, or one finger click in the right click area of the touchpad. Two finger scrolling works both vertical and horizonal directions.
(2) Keyboard is fine, took me less than 90 sec to adjust to its sensitivity.
(3) They ship with a SanDisk SSD which is still very fast, initially they shipped with a slightly faster ADATA SSD.
