After some time
Pros: Wireless, Heavy base, very loud if you pump up the volume, and the mic works fine. I have had these for several weeks now and have had zero issue with the mic, I have also put it through its paces with games such as World of Warcraft, Mass Effect 2, and Team fortress 2. They sound crisp, clear, and the surround manipulation with the THX works amazing. The mic is clear and easy for people to hear you even when you have the voice modification on. The range is around 15 feet to 20 which is a fair amount and the USB Charger cable is more than long enough for when you need it plugged in to charge the headset batteries.
Cons: Your not allowed to change the mic quality past default settings?
Overall Review: I do not know what the people below are talking bout "extending" the mic. THe mic does NOT extend out at all so either they are referring to another headset and do not realize it or they just are raving for no reason? As I said before up top the mic works fine in fact it is rather sturdy and would be pretty hard to break unless you are abusing the headset in which case would explain why things would break in general. I would refer this headset to anyone that is tired of cables and wires or just manages to damage wired heasets because these you can walk around with easily unless you need to do the occasional charge.
A Simple Case with Plenty of Potential
Pros: - Plenty of Space inside - Plenty of space for cable management - can hold up to 4 standard hard-drive plus a set location for a SSD right above the drive cage - Plenty of bottom clearance to use on a carpet - front dust filters to keep the inside clean - Optical drive support if you need it
Cons: - Not enough clearance for a 240mm radiator top and cannot place in front either (See other thoughts) - Front and top fan access requires removing the front and top panels - No transparent side panel? (See other thoughts)
Overall Review: Radiator support is minimal for this. A 240mm+ is out of the question due to clearance issues between the top of the case and motherboard/RAM location, and there is no way to put it in the front, but you can still use a 120mm radiator in the back without any issues. I have a push/pull one on there now. The hard-drive can hold plenty of drives, but it is not designed to be removable, so if you wish to SLI/Crossfire make sure your second card with make the fit first. To clean the front dust filter you will need to remove the front panel, but I haven't needed to remove it so far. Dust sits on the front of the case so all you really should have to do is a quick wipe in the front and you are good. The cable management is really easy to do with this case, and I don't think I could of asked for it to be any easier. In the end I would highly recommend this case, even with the dual graphics "problem" it is top quality, specially considering how low the price is. My conclusion is if you don't care for flashy, and want something that is practical and just plan works for a general build I don't think you can get much better than this computer case. Current system in there when writing the review I have an Intel i7-3770k in an Asus Z77-v LK, with 16GB of DDR3 Patriot Extreme RAM, and a Corsair H50 liquid cooler. For graphics I have a EVGA 980 FTW edition. An 850w Thermaltake TR-2 power supply for the system. Storage is a 1 2TB Western Digital Green hard-drive, a 3 TB Western Digital Blue drive, and a 240gb PNY SSD. I also have a Sound Blaster Recon3D sound card in there for audio.
Pros: OK after unpacking this device and working with it in 2 computers i can say under Windows 8 there are no issues. It works great and is recognized immediately and setup was a breeze.
Cons: Under Windows 7 I came across some issues... When using Bluetooth in general I ended up with a lot of crackling and noise with headsets, which would end with me disconnecting the device and having to reconnect it.
Overall Review: If the issues under Windows 7 did not exist I would easily give this 5/5 eggs, but with the seemingly I guess wireless transfer issues I cannot do that. I still love the device and use it with another Bluetooth headset in the bedroom for when I work out so it does what I need it for,
Pros: This is the best headset I have actually owned. I would have to say after owning this for over a year and treating it properly this thing has not let me down. The audio itself is VERY crisp and clear and you can hear everything you would ever want to hear for whatever you do be it gaming, audio editing, music listening, and movie watching. The long cord makes it easily able to reach where you need it and the mic works flawlessly.
Cons: The first one I bought did have a faulty wire inside. I quickly returned them to best buy where I purchased them and or dered another pair online.
Overall Review: I see a lot of people saying they are cheaply made and have broken. I have made SURE to keep these very well taken care of. I had another pair of these that I dropped all the time and ended up having to super glue and zip tie them to keep them together in the end but they still worked.
Pros: I have used 3 of these cases. First was for my sisters computer, I built and then for my father, and now I have one as well. The case worked great and was easy to setup for them. Mine was a little more complicated but I got my whole system in here now with 2 Scythe Ultra Kaze fans in it. One is on the side window and the other is on my Corsair Hydro H50. See other thoughts.
Cons: The only con I would have to say was setting up my system in this thing. It is just generally a little less room than what I am used to working with in a case. I much prefer a full tower (See other thoughts). Though for this size of a case to fit everything in it was excellent. See other thoughts. Also just messing with the front fans a little I can see them being a pain to replace but still a lot easier to replace than in my last case by a long shot.
Overall Review: I got this case because my wife and I have a baby on the way and she would like to eventually get an armoire to hide the computer in so we needed something smaller and with the 20$ off and then an additional 20$ mail in rebate I could not say no to the offer with this case. The only reason one of my Scythe Ultra Kaze is in the side window is because it would not fit on the radiator. I got 2 fans on the H50 just one is the corsair stock that comes with it in the end.
