Most Critical Review

No I didn't like it

Rosewill 11 pcs Stainless-Steel BBQ Set with Aluminum Storage Case R11BBQ-11001A
Rosewill 11 pcs Stainless-Steel BBQ Set with Aluminum Storage Case R11BBQ-11001A

Pros: It's fun to think you have tools to BBQ with.

Cons: These were flimsy and useless. Everything bent and handles fell off. The spatula lasted the longest, but it eventually failed.

Shipped to the wrong City over 370 miles away.

Creative Sound Blaster PLAY! 3 24-bit 96KHz USB Interface Sound Card

Cons: Never recieved the product

Overall Review: The incompetent sub humans at King of the forest were somehow so incompetent that they couldn't even get the address right even though it was transmitted to them electronically with my order. Now I have to wait 7-10 days for them to process my claim and another two weeks after that to see if they can ship it to the right address. If you're looking to buy this product, buy it from a different retailer. I'm very disappointed.

Nice TV stand

AVF FSL700LUCB-A 32 - 65" Reflections - Lucerne Curved Pedestal TV Stand
AVF FSL700LUCB-A 32 - 65" Reflections - Lucerne Curved Pedestal TV Stand

Pros: It was well packaged and undamaged by shipping. The instructions were very clear. The construction is well done; there were no sharp edges or other obvious defects. It includes mounting bolts to fit any TV you may want to use with it. Mounting the TV (50" in my case) was a breeze.

Overall Review: A nice looking, sturdy, and easy to assemble solution for mounting your tv without having to put holes in your walls.

Sexy RAM for my birthday

Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLBED38G1600HC9DC01
Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLBED38G1600HC9DC01

Pros: It was my birthday so I decided to gift myself some more memory for my PC. I already use Team memory and it is operating without issue with a 15% overclock on the CPU.

Cons: I can think of no cons.

Overall Review: I went with Team a few years ago, and I think I'm a firmly loyal customer now.

My first USB headset

PLANTRONICS .Audio 655 DSP USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
PLANTRONICS .Audio 655 DSP USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset

Pros: - Crisp highs, rich lows, thunderous bass that shows up at just the right times. I had just got these to replace a set from another manufacturer that had an unsatisfying mic. In a game of ARMA III I was honestly shocked at the almost visceral *thud* from a nearby explosion. I had never experienced such a thing from a headset in a game before. - I am absolutely delighted with the way they sound to the ears, and the mic is accurate and noise free. - They are well constructed and feel solid; even the hinge on the mic feels strong. - The cord is nice and long which affords me flexibility in desk cable management, the placement of my actual PC, and lets me pick the USB ports I prefer to use. It seems like a little thing, but it makes me happy.

Cons: - Yes, I have a large head. When I first got them 6+ months ago, sometimes after about three hours or so my ears would experience a slight ache. I measured, and when at rest the cushions on the earpieces are 2 1/4 inches apart. They have relaxed considerably with frequent use. I guess you would call this a "breaking in" period. - It would be nice if there was a button to mute the mic; you have to lift it to mute it. At first I was skeptical about whether that would be a weak point in the design, but there's not been any crackling and the connection seems very solid.
