Pros: It functions as good as any other cable
It feels like quality
It's 10 bucks...at present.
Overall Review: Doeit.
Pros: Sound quality is great
Canal buds are very comfortable (I use the largest set)
Isolation is better than any I've had before*
Buttons have great tactile feedback
Mic works very well
Cons: On the Nexus One, which it isn't advertised to work with, you cannot use the volume controls or the skip BACK control. Play/pause and skip forward work perfectly. Keep this in mind if you're using an Android OS.
The wiring feels really cheap, and is a bit shiny; I prefer matte finish for longevity of appearance and durability.
Overall Review: The wiring feels cheap, but only time will tell.
I'm far from an audiophile. I've got about $3k into my desktop, and I have no intention of upgrading the 3.1 speaker system I'm using that came with my very first computer; a Gateway 2000 PII G6 (266MHz!!!). I've Krylon Fusion'ed them in a timeless color, black, but other than that they remain the same. My headsets, prior to this one, were all OEM; the ones that came with my Ericcson w810i were very good, though. From HTC, I get dung. So now I have this wonderful Klipsch S4i headset, and am out more than I've spent on a listening device over the past decade for it. The iPod I was given has sat in a dock for wireless speakers, also a gift, since day one; unless it was attached to an FM transmitter (same gift bag, awesome of them!).
Pros: Fast and easy.
Cons: Very inefficient by modern standards.
Overall Review: I hated to purchase another AMD product after their treatment of early Phenom adopters running 64-bit OS's; claiming that x64 was supported when there IS a fatal flaw with the chip. If you tell me it's the OS, you're a troll. AMD's official policy was to say that, but has been proven false by independent testers from the start.
However, it was much cheaper to upgrade the processor for this system than start new. As soon as this motherboard requires upgrading, I'll be going to Intel.
Pros: Works great in all 32-bit operating systems.
Cons: COMPLETELY incompatible with ALL 64-bit operating systems; personally checked Vista, XP, and a slue of linux kernels.
AMD is COMPLETELY aware of the problem, but will not admit it as to prevent refunds to customers.
AMD is willing to do that, and willing to have consumers loose use of their processor while it is being "tested" by their lab; which will of course tell you that it's working fine, and that the OS is to blame.
Overall Review: I've been a fan of AMD for their economy of speed for a long time, but not at the new price that includes such business practices.
Happily, I helped cost them a two year contract with a local firm of which a group of friends are at various levels of management. Intel may be over priced, but as long as the driving force at AMD remains the same, I'll pay whatever it takes.
Pros: It's the best out there! It's very easy to put large text files on there, additional programs, 3rd party software, etc. It's easy to use. It's easy to program. I absolutely love it.
Cons: There is an issue with 3+ integrations at once on rare occasion. This prevents me from using it for such, because one wrong answer out of a hundred is enough to make me pull my hair out. Also, be sure to place algebraic limits in parenthesis when using built in functions or it will mess up the order of operations.
I wish it had a button that would list all possible simplified solutions; not to mention simplified solutions when dealing with more complex problems.
I would like the option of step-by-step solutions for problems. (See: Ti89.com)
I want to see integrated bluetooth, a SDHC card slot, and optional password protection (anti-theft measure).
Overall Review: I've never had anyone use mine that didn't love it.
My additional programs include: ME Pro, EE Pro, Table of Elements, Notefolio, Ti-Reader and others.
I do NOT recommend this product to people in math classes below Calculus II.
Pros: Great little case. Looks good, great air flow, easy to place noise reduction modifications Aluminum construction makes it light weight while being sturdy enough. The mobo tray is awesome, but requires power supply removal to place proc. fan; they should have made the power supply screws thumb screws.
Cons: Font bezel isn't as sturdy as it should be. The power switch is very touch, activating even at a slight bump of the front panel (often turning the PC off or on when not intended)
Overall Review: I would definitely use this case again.
Pros: Offers features not commonly found on mATX boards, yet.
Cons: internal HD audio port does not work at all, meaning the front panel of your case will not work. Latest BIOS fixed several of the other issues, such as hanging up if a key was held down.
Overall Review: I wouldn't buy this board again unless I was putting an AM2+ proc. in it.
Pros: Everything works as advertised. The price is great. I've put this drive in every computer I've built in the past few months.
Overall Review: Couldn't be any happier with an optical drive, unless it was faster.
Pros: The sound quality is great, bass is more than expected for their size, wire length allows creative placement.
Cons: The volume controller sucks, would prefer it out of the loop. Built in wire management would be a great feature. Sub-wolfer shape, considering the direction and wire placement, is odd.
Overall Review: Extremely pleased with the purchase, considering the price.
Pros: Great heatsinks with all pertinent information clearly visible.
Cons: Mail-in Rebate still isn't here...if it ever will be.
Pros: Vibrant, crisp color. The indicator light and menu buttons are tucked away beautifully (since mine is in my bedroom, these things matter to me)
Cons: Heavy bleed through on top and moderate on bottom, only for a cm each, though.
Overall Review: Cannot beat it, for the price.
Pros: Silent, easy to work with, durable, future proof, aesthetically pleasing,...I could go on forever. This case is near perfect.
Cons: Far, far too little intake. 3x120mm blowing out and 1 120mm pulling in...?! I'm going to attempt putting an intake in the front HDD area
DO NOT PUT THIS UNDER A DESK. It needs plenty of overhead to exhaust the hot air.
Overall Review: Cosmos 1000, Phenom 9600BE (B2), Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe, 4 x 2gb A-data DDR2 800, EVGA 8800 GT, PC Power and Cooling S75QB 750W.
Pros: TLB issue is rare and only applies to specific uses, just forget about it (if it would be an issue for you, you'd already know). This processor is king of the hill when taking into account price barriers and Intel being the devil. The stock heat sink is a thing of beauty. Out of the box temps were 37*-45* from idle to 100%, respectively. Overdrive application is the cats pajamas.
Cons: None at all.
Pros: The materials, decibels, and price are amazing.
Cons: 3/4 of them run at the bare minimum of the advertised RPM, the other 1/4 runs bellow the minimum.
Overall Review: At $8, you cannot go wrong with these fans.
Pros: Runs very cool and stable. Perfect for office applications.
Overall Review: Rosewill R379 w/300W, Athlon 64 X2 4000+, MSI K9AGM2-L, 2 x 2gb A-data DDR2 800.
Pros: Runs very cool, everything fit nicely, no sharp edges, doesn't feel flimsy or cheap.
Cons: Wish there was an aluminum version...
Pros: All features work flawlessly.
Pros: It's a flash card at a great price. There's nothing exceptional about the product itself, it either works or it doesn't. The price, ease of purchase, speed of delivery, and wonderful support that comes with purchasing it here, on NewEgg, is what matters.
Cons: I didn't upgrade sooner...
Overall Review: I, as a lot of other people on here, purchased this for my w810i. It works flawlessly, storing music, pictures, video, everything... I loaded UBCD (UltimateBootCD) onto it for emergencies. This is a great product, the only reason not to buy it is if your device will support a larger card and you have the money to go that route.
