WHAT?! RIDE AN EMU? I CAN'T HEAR YOU, SPEAK UP!

Razer Hammerhead Pro In-Ear Gaming and Music Headset
Razer Hammerhead Pro In-Ear Gaming and Music Headset

Pros: I use these exclusively on my surface pro 2, and once you get the razer software in, and get the EQ tuned up just right, they will absolutely liquify your eardrums... these things are loud and clear. Bass is STUPIDLY overwhelming is you set it to be, but again, USE YOUR SOFTWARE EQ! razer provides very nice software with these, (downloadable, with an in-box key) and even cloudsaves your settings. All these "snobs" whining about audio quality need to see themselves out... you bought a headset that SPECIFICALLY STATES IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that they're made for bass... next time you'll learn to read the frelling manual. From a music standpoint, they could use some work, and a lot of their shortcomings in that regard can be nursed with the razer software... They however from a *gaming* standpoint, are utterly phenominal. The mic is spot on too.

Cons: Whiny wanna-be audiosnobs and hipsters that think not reading the massive black font on the package declaring they're bass heavy by design gives them a creative license to whine about it being bass heavy by design.

Most Critical Review

I want to use this thing SO badly...

ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Affordable. ASUS name.

Cons: Powers off after an hour and absolutely REFUSES to reinitialize on usb 2, or 3 until I unplug it, wait a minute, then plug it into a completely different port. Tried 2 desktops, a tablet, a laptop, and 3 servers, all the same thing, so it's not the local config. I expected more out of ASUS networking from products I use of theirs, this one seems to be the black sheep of the bunch. Time to go back to Intel wireless.

Great cooler!

Cooler Master Hyper 612 Ver.2 - Silent CPU Air Cooler with 6 Direct Contact Heatpipes and Folding Fin Structure

Pros: I can now throw out my H100i V2. I installed this to my FX8350, and let prime95 run for 6 hours... It never broke 52c. Idles at 30c, my ambient in the room is 28c. Really quiet. The installation was super painless, I recommend cobbling up the base pre-install to make sure you understand how it goes together.

Cons: Only con I have is that i didn't buy this instead of that lousy H100 in the first place.

Overall Review: Could not possibly recommend this enough.

Further reinforcement that newer is not always better.

SilverStone RAVEN RV02B-EW-USB3.0 Matte black reinforced plastic outer shell, 0.8mm Steel body ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Window Side Panel with 2X USB3.0 ports

Pros: Roomy, solid, looks really good, and cools like a beast!

Cons: No cons to note, the rear panel is a little tight, but this case does nothing to help you. Silverstone is function over form, and always has been, know what you're getting into before you buy.

Overall Review: Cannot recommend this enough.

Lenovo delivers once again.

Pros: Bought one for the wife, roommate, and mother in law, they ll love them, not much else to say... they get HEAVY daily usage, and never miss a beat. Thank you lenovo for yet another quality product!

Cons: Evidently I need to be an android app to get any attention anymore.

It is what it says on the tin.
