Great Build Quality, questionable (lack) features
Pros: The look of the chair is amazing, the fake leather is extremely nice and clean, comfortable feeling and theres no sags on the stitching, its all tight and crisp looking. Chair itself is pretty comfortable (280 pound guy here) and I definitely dont see it breaking on me. 0 tilt/lean to it when sitting in it. My roommate bought a similar chair and his has a slight lean if you move right or left in it, this stays firmly in place. Overall nice chair for the money. My friends cost $175 and I prefer mine for sure, his may have more "features" but mine is overall a better build quality and comfort
Cons: I really thought the lumbar support would have straps to adjust the pillow up or down or atleast keep it in place. Truth is, its literally just a pillow that sits on the chair, not even that comfortable. I prefer it without it. The directions were also a huge hassle, it wasnt difficult to put together once I realized what was what, the print on the manual is extremely small and kind of blurry/faded, not a big deal but made me squint a few times to make things out.
Overall Review: Overall for the price (I paid $115 shipped) which is right where I wanted to pay. Im sure a DXRacer or one of the other name brands are more comfortable/feature rich, but for this price I dont think you can beat it. Definitely better than my old chair.
Worst earphones ive ever used
Pros: 1. Cool Design 2. Nice Case 3. Good range 4. Quick set up
Cons: 1. The ear bud is massive, if you have average to small ears these will be extremely uncomfortable and wont fit in your ear correctly 2. Sound quality is simply poor, absolutely no bass 3. Not loud what so ever, in a room with nobody else in it and had the volume cranked all way up and could still barely hear my music. It sounded like volume was only half way up or so 4. Sort of relates to point 1, but it does not stay in ear due to the large size. Could not get it to settle in correctly and constantly fell out of my ear while working out.
Overall Review: Extremely disappointed with both the product and the seller. First off the item took over a month to arrive to me as it had gotten "lost" in the mail. In the day and age of tracking info being readily available, no reason a package should go missing. After the month + it finally arrived and I was pretty excited. Upon opening I noticed how huge the ear buds were and knew then and there that these would not be comfortable nor fit correctly. Was hoping the sound quality would atleast offset all of the issues ive had, huge NOPE on that aspect too. My $12 sony in-ear buds sound VASTLY better than these, I can actually make out my music on those. Do yourself a favor and do not purchase these, even if they are dirt cheap. These arent even worth taking for free. Expect so much more from JBL and Under Armour.
Incredible Budget Case
Pros: - Nice aesthetic - Alot of room - Great cable management - Build Quality - Glass side panel - Ventilation (see cons too) - Easy to build in
Cons: - The mesh on the case is extremely fine/ thick and restricts airflow considerably - Lighting on connectors is powered by Molex
Overall Review: This is the cheapest case I have ever built in. I had very low expectations and was really just looking for a barebones case that did what I needed. Little did I know this was going to be arguably one of my favorite cases ive ever built in. First impression is it is a good looking clean case. Lots of ventilation points, good size, glass panel, etc. Just looks very simple and sleek which I enjoy. Upon starting to build, I quickly learned that you can remove basically everything you want. Which makes it extremely easy to build in. There were enough cutouts in the right places to make running cables easy, and reaching to get them was a breeze with all the access points you had. The one con I noticed was the mesh filters. I ended up removing all of them in order to allow for the best airflow. This ended up helping take around 15 degrees off total temps of everything. It will require more upkeep, but thats worth it for parts that are breathing better. My last build was in the Corsair 4000D airflow which was my previous favorite case and this reminds me alot of that but at a MUCH lower price point. That alone makes this my new favorite case. I also really like that the IO is on the side and not the top. Easy to access and see when I need it.
Beast of a Card
Pros: - Great Cooling - Fast Performance - Nice Design - Worked with little to no set up
Cons: - Large, its a thin card but extremely long and wide - No lighting
Overall Review: I consider myself a pc enthusiast though I had fallen a bit away from building and using for about 2-3 years (mainly during covid). I originally had a nice PC with a 2070Super in it that I loved but decided to sell the entire system when PC parts became scarce and I wanted to cash in. I then went roughly 2 years with no real PC until I bought a gaming laptop with a 3060ti in it. It was a nice laptop but the laptop had a limited cpu and laptop gpus always arent that great either. So I decided to sell that and get back into real pc gaming. I came across this card when I was debating the 3060ti, 3070 (& ti variant) and the 6700xt. I didnt know 6750xt was a thing until I saw this and found it was only like $30more for what looked like a 6-10% or so increase in performance per game. Figured it was worth it. I must not have realized how bottlenecked that laptop actually was in gaming because games that I was getting around 65fps in, im getting around 90+ here and its incredible. First game I tested was Forza Horizon 5. I got a stable 60-65fps at ultra settings on the laptop, but with this I cranked it to Extreme settings and was getting 90+ fps on average. The card never went above 65 degrees either! Overall I am EXTREMELY happy with this purchase. I do wish it was Nvidia as I enjoy DLSS and have always been in that ecosystem, this is my first AMD graphics card so everything is new to me with their software and its not quite as simple and intuitive as Geforce is. But for the massive price to performance jump between this vs 3070/ti it was a no brainer to go this route and im happy I did. Just make sure your case is large enough to properly fit and cool this.
Nice Features, lackluster image
Pros: - 165hz is great - Stand is actually decent even though there not much adjustment, looks and feels premium - Slim design - Flat panel, no pointless curve
Cons: The overall image quality leaves alot to be desired. The whites are more grey, though the blacks and contrasts is really solid. Im coming from a budget 4k 60hz Samsung panel which may be affecting my initial feeling of this monitor. The colors and vibrancy of that Samsung panel absolutely BLOWS this away and I believe that was a VA panel as well. I've tried messing with settings on this pixio and nothing really gets it right. Turning up the backlight/brightness just dull out the overall image. Im sure I will get used to the less than stellar brightness as I continue to use it, but it is kind of disappointing.
Overall Review: Was going to sell the 4k Samsung but may end up keeping just for games where I prefer better image over smoother gameplay. I would recommend this if youre more of a multiplayer person as the 144/165hz is a huge difference and this monitor will be fine. But If youre more into single player and pretty looking games, I would go with a different monitor.
Pros: I have changed cases many times in the past 3-4 years, ive had great ones from Corsair and Phanteks but this one takes first place. The white is a beautiful matt finish with a great texture feel, not that glossy slick finish. Wanted to do a white and orange build and this fits all my parts perfectly. Plenty of room to build in, lots of space in back to run wires, tons of cable management areas to tie down, tempered glass is beautiful. Love how the tempered glass has a rather thick black border to hide about an inch of case all the way around. I have 4 corsair node lighting strips on all 4 sides and it hides them perfectly while also allowing the leds to really pop. Also a must for VR users, the 2 usb 3.0 and 2 usb 2.0 and hdmi ports on front IO is amazing and much needed. Air Flow seems to be solid. Have the front as intake and back and top as exhaust and things seem to stay pretty cool. Overall extreme happy with this case and dont think I will be straying from it anytime soon like I have in past with cases. At $100, you cant go wrong.
Cons: Only major gripe is how large some of the front IO cables are. The usb 3.0 cable and hdmi cable are extremely thick and stiff and the hdmi cable is a little too long. There was a ton of cable left over from both so it was a bit of a pain getting everything tucked away and managed.
