Pros: This headset is probably the most comfortable I've ever tried and definitely the most comfortable I've owned.
Sound quality is clear
Everything is detachable
Mic works well
Cons: Bass leaves something to be desired but not bad at all for something without its own power source.
Mic leaves my friends deaf sometimes because its super sensitive
Overall Review: I would buy again and highly recommend for anybody looking for a no-frills option.
Pros: Decent coverage and speeds. No issues with rebooting as stated with other people. Handles 900-1000 mbps upload and download on wired with no issues
Cons: 5ghz wifi maxes in the 500's for speeds - I'm not sure if it's an issue with the router or just needs an update or settings changed.
Overall Review: I would buy it again. But wouldn't pay more than $80 for this device. Next time I'll probably do a higher performance router or mesh wifi system
Pros: Very efficient and has enough power to support most applications. Reliable
Cons: the Sata power cable connectors break too easy - down to half of them working
Overall Review: Be careful with the Sata Power cables when you are cramped on space. the bottom portion can break off where it plugs into the hard drive
Pros: Gotta say, never bought ASRock before but I am decently impressed, I took out my ASUS and connected this one and it started right up.
Cons: Cannot find a way to OC the GPU in the bios, have to use software.
Overall Review: UPDATE: Had this board for 1 1/2 years now and still running strong after going through surges and brown-outs. no issues.
Pros: Very dependable
- Last two RAM brands I had died on me within 6 months and this one is going 2+ years strong
Timing and overclock is pretty easy
Cons: None really, not top of the line in terms of speed, but I knew that when I bought.
Overall Review: Going to buy another 8 GB, currently have 8 in my pc now
-Massive room for graphics cards
Cons: Plastic feet are very cheaply made- two broke off within a week
Terrible for multiple hard drives
You can tell Zalman cheaped out on certain aspects of the case
Overall Review: Replaced all the fans with LED fans with a total of 5 fans
Pros: Upgrading from a Phenom 2 965. Has a huge boost in performance and it is very difficult to run this processor to it's limits.
-Great for multi-tasking
Cons: -Stock cooler is terrible
Pros: Upgraded from a Radeon 6850 - almost went with AMD again but I eventually wanted to run dual GPUs and with AMD that would require a new psu
- This has lower power consumption
-Better performance for everything other than 4k resolution compared to the AMD radeon 290x
-Runs cooler and quieter than my last graphics card even on overclock mode
-I can now run Far Cry 4 at Ultra and any other game in my library
-No coil whine so far as some others indicated
Cons: the whole Nvidia 3.5/.05 gb Vram issue but it hasn't caused me any issues with it not being a 4gb
Pros: Bought this card for my dad's computer. So far he can run all of the games he owns and hasn't had any issues with the quality of the card, can't ask for much more for the price. No problems with the drivers, the asus mobo started up right away and I just simply updated them through AMD's website. -- Scores a 6.8 on the windows experience index. (Word of advice - don't update graphics card drivers for either Nvidia or AMD through windows update, had a lot of friends who did this and it caused issues down the road)
Cons: If using HDMI, as with most or all Radeon Cards, you must change the scaling on the card because it will leave a black bar all the way around the screen unless you turn up the over-scan all the way. I had the same issue with my Sapphire HD Radeon 6850 - simply just open the AMD Vision Engine Control and search for Scaling Options.
Overall Review: Some gave this a poor review because of this default setting I listed in the Cons such as the one reviewer who reverted back to their intel 3000 graphics because they did not understand this simple fix. Please don't be that guy who gives a bad review to a decent product due to a minor and easy fix.
Pros: Great graphics card, the best for the price.
Cons: First card was a doa
Pros: This monitor is very thin and lightweight, has amazing picture quality, and different modes such as game mode and theater mode, i absolutely love it
The touch screen buttons are awesome too
Cons: none at all
Pros: Very nice monitor, best i have seen, sharp picture and amazing resolution.
Cons: absolutely nothing at all
Pros: Very good sound quality, easy to use, decent for gaming, good mic
Cons: The chord wore out on me kinda fast towards the tip, it sometimes disconnects when I move it, sometimes the software is a pain but not a big deal
Overall Review: Try not to bend the chord a lot and you should be fine
Pros: Very fast RAM, easy to overclock, works great, i would recommend this to anybody I know
Cons: it was 144.99 when i bought it, now its 120.... all well, still worth every penny, plus i got a free fan with my purchase
Overall Review: AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4 ghz
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard
Kingston HyperX T1 series 4gb 240-pin DDR3 2250
EVGA Nvidia 9800 gtx+
Pros: runs fast when it does run
Cons: Major issues with this RAM, unreliable, failed after 2 days of putting it in, getting blue screen memory dump errors every time I play games, use firefox, and install games. If you buy this you have a chance of it working great or running like a pile of s***, or even a DOA, be ready to return it, Unfortunately I did not install mine until about 29 days after I bought it (I ordered my gaming pc part by part, this was one of the first i ordered) and they won't refund/replace it on the 30th day
Overall Review: I wish i would have bought Kingston, going to contact OCZ and get a replacement hopefully
Pros: Probably one of the best graphics cards you can get for the price, thinking about getting a second one
Cons: Make sure you have a big enough case
Overall Review: I recommend a full tower case definitely, not only because this card takes up some space but you will like the extra room for stuff, I like Apevia X-Jupiter cases, very very roomy
Pros: I just built my gaming PC and wow, this thing is fast, I haven't even overclocked it yet and I am amazed, buy this now if you need the best processor you can get for under 180 bucks
Cons: None yet
Overall Review: Also, the Asus M4A89GTD Pro usb3.0 motherboard is a good choice to go with this processor
