Much better than expected

Turtle Beach XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Headset Ear Force X41
Turtle Beach XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Headset Ear Force X41

Pros: I was a little skeptical reading through the countless reviews on how this headset "hisses" and "pops". How the bass doesn't "thump" and all. How it constantly looses wireless sync. Let me tell you this has not been the case with my experience! I have tried them all, the tritton, the razer chimera, and A40 wireless Astros and this is by far the best wireless heaset experience. Call of duty sounds alive! loud enough that I had to lower the volume a few times. This headset sounds amazing. It's comfortable and does the job right. You hear a small "hissing" sound, but it's hardly noticeable and goes away with game sound. The only unit that came close in comparison were the Astro a40, but the price is not worth it. The mic works well too, if the game sound gets loud the mic adjusts accordingly. Definately a good choice and the bass is just right. This is a gaming wireless headset for $140 so if you're expecting audiphile quality you have to be crazy! You won't be disappointed!

Cons: *Non Rechargeable batteries *Not completely wireless you still need a cable from headset to xbox 360 controller. *Wish it came in black, white looks too cheap. *Doesn't feel like the best quality out there, in fact they feel very light and some complaint about the cheap "plastic" feel. *Price could of been lower, as newer units have been introduced.

Overall Review: Make sure you have some rechargeable batteries available as I can see the battery draining pretty quickly. The razer chimera wireless has built in rechargeable batteries that charge with the dock and comes in black, turtle beach step your game up! This unit gets the job done, and music sounds just right too. People have complained about interference, however I have this next to my wireless router and I have a wireless 2.4ghz phone close to the unit and have yet to experience any interference. And if you are experiencing interference, make sure you look around your household for other forms of interference. I literally have the router and headset base side by side. I read somewhere that if you adjust the channel on your wireless network to a higher channel, this should remedy the interference as this unit works in the lower channels. Just food for some thought.

Beware, causes Kernel panics on imac 2010

Mushkin Enhanced 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Memory for Apple Model 976647A
Mushkin Enhanced 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Memory for Apple Model 976647A

Pros: Beware, none

Cons: Installed on my iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2010) after seeing this memory was supported by my system. However, after install it kept causing kernel panics which caused a rebooting loop. Not compatible with this mac. Tried all different configurations and this memory just doesn't work. If you read through apple's support forum, you'll see imac are pretty "picky" when it comes to memory.

3 WORDS....WOW!

LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)
LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: This product exceeds my expectations for it's functionality, sound, and comfort! I was skeptical in buying another bluetooth headset and after reading several reviews on this unit I wasn't too convinced of how great they would sound. I read a review where one person stated the sound is not stereo like....well...were they wrong! This thing sounds amazing when it comes to playing music or on on the phone. I have this synced with my Galaxy SII. These are superior to most wired headsets and the bass is incredible. Nowhere did I read it was a noise cancellation headphones/bluetooth but wow, it sure does a good job in making you think it is. If I am on the subway or find myself walking through a huge crowd, all I do is press on the play button and boom! Every noise around me suddenly disappears! My GF is constantly fighting me over using this unit. I have owned several other bt units and they all look dorky and stupid. Some are real flimsy and easy get lost.

Cons: none so far...

Overall Review: Very comfortable, easy to use and long battery life. I am so happy I was thinking of buying a second pair to keep just in case. They're so light you can't even feel you have it on. No more losing bluetooth or misplacing them.

first unit was a dud

MASSCOOL HS-MA103 Mini HDMI Amplifier Switch 3 in 1 out

Pros: If it works it's great and it auto senses the input being used without the need for an external power source. I didn't have to buy an AV receiver or even bother using the button on the unit to switch between sources.

Cons: First unit was a dud. And after reading through several other site's user reviews, it's not very uncommon to receive a defective unit due to poor manufacturing. Video started flickering when a source such as my xbox 360 or ps3 were turned on.

Overall Review: Newegg is simply the best online electronic/computer site ever! I didn't have to wait long before they shipped a replacement free of charge without a hitch! They even allowed for me to keep the old (which is practically useless). And for this, newegg has me as one of their many loyal customers. Can't beat free overnight shipping!

Worthless...Volume Super LOW!

Sennheiser HD201 Over-Ear Headphones
Sennheiser HD201 Over-Ear Headphones

Pros: +Comfortable +looks great +cheap price +good brand +clear sound

Cons: -VERY LOW SOUND! Ipod standard headphones have BETTER LOUDER SOUND! and no, it's not because they're in ears as compared to these!

Overall Review: I just recently ordered the hd202s from the same manufacturer and will be returning these. The hd202 have louder sound/bass, come with a cord wrapping thingy, and are a bit smaller. I tried them both. Don't be cheap like me and spend a little more on the hd202s you won't be disappointed. Also check out the reviews here comparing both and also check out ama..zon's reviews on the hd202.

Pretty impressed

Microsoft - 16GB Zune HD (BLACK)
Microsoft - 16GB Zune HD (BLACK)

Pros: I was skeptical at first, but after signing up for the zune pass I fell in love with this device. Microsoft got it right this time and the OLED screen sharpness is amazing. This mp3/mp4 player in conjunction with Microsoft’s subscription plan by far outshines Apple’s iTouch. I was skeptical at first, since I have been a loyal follower of the iPods/iphones since their beginnings. I loved the simplicity of the iTouch and ITunes, but the Zune HD is a very solid product. It’s easy to navigate, screen is very responsive, and os is clean and easy to navigate. Zune HD remembers the last song you listened to and where you left of during your listening of that song. It’s a solid Mp3/mp4 player with lots of great features. My options were between an ITouch 8gig $190 or a Zune HD 16gig $219 (free shipping!) It’s a no brainer that you get more for your money with a Zune HD. Zune 4.0 software is something not to be reckoned with. With my Zune pass subscription every song, album, podca

Cons: Don’t like how small and fragile this zune player is. It resembles an iPod nano in size. You might be fooled by the online images of this device, but this thing is small and looks very fragile! I wish it was a bit bigger as it looks a bit like one of those cheap flash mp3 players on the market. So far the size is the only thing preventing me from completely falling in love with this device. There are no cases/holders for this device yet, I checked online and found nothing, not even online! Web browser is not up to par with the itouch’s safari browser. In fact the Zune browser appears to be more like a WAP browser than anything else. It’s nice how this device allows you to download music out of the marketplace straight from the device while utilizing Wi-Fi, however I been unsuccessful at doing so. For some reason I keep getting error messages. I can connect to my WI-FI, but maybe the marketplace was down during time of test. Stock headphones are not even up to par wit

Overall Review: I just wish this thing was slightly bigger yet smaller than the iTouch. I thought this device was about the size of the old zune but just thinner. In conclusion, the main thing this device has an advantage over the Itouch is in the zune pass subscription service. Other than that, the itouch has the greater more flexible advantage.
