Most Critical Review

A very average chair at a premium price

Vertagear Racing Series P-Line PL6000 Ergonomic Racing Style Gaming Office Chair - Black/Carbon (Rev. 2)
Vertagear Racing Series P-Line PL6000 Ergonomic Racing Style Gaming Office Chair - Black/Carbon (Rev. 2)

Pros: The chair is comfortable and fits me nicely, I'm 6'5" 350lbs so I'm a big guy but still within the weight capacity for the chair. I can use pretty much any height setting and be fairly comfortable, now my only problem is my desk isn't tall enough to go with the chair. Comfort wise I think it feels great, I see some people saying that it is to firm but its a big chair made for bigger people so I think that is part of the reason some people feel it is to firm but for me its perfect.

Cons: I only have one problem with the chair and its a bit of a big one... The wheels, man are the wheels bad and weak compared to the rest of the chair. Like I mentioned above I'm a big guy but still within the capacity of the chair but not even 30 minutes after putting the chair together one of the wheels popped apart and will go back together but won't stay if I try and roll around while sitting in the chair. Edit: The longer I have the chair the more I find meh about it and at this price that's not really acceptable. The back does not sit straight its alignment is off vertically and horizontally, its not a deal breaker but at this price it should be right. I really want to like this chair more and maybe I'll be able to move past all of that once I get my new wheels in, I ordered some of the rollerblade style wheels since they may hold up better, but Vertagear contacted me last week and told me that once I sent them my address they would send me a new set of wheels and I responded with my address and everything and heard nothing back and I haven't gotten any wheels in the mail yet and its been over a week.

Overall Review: I like the chair and hate the wheels, or really wheel since so far I only have a problem with one of them.

Cons: none

Pros: its a good cpu for the price... overclocked to 3.2 GHz easily. again its cheap.

Cons: the 955 BE out preforms this processor... i wanted the 955 but it was out of stock. other than that none really

Pros: its modular for one its blue led and its more than powerful enough for most budget machines which is exactly what my computer is.

Cons: the supplementary power to the CPU is a little short... even for my mid tower.

Does everything i expected

Pros: This is a great budget card... the best in my opinion. it works pretty well i play a few computer games and it plays them all very well. the added fact that you get dirt 3 free just sweetens the deal... again in my opinion dirt 3 is a good game

Cons: none really... its big but not to big so it fits my case with ease.
