Pros: - Feels sturdy and solid
- Comfortable fit in the ears
- Healthy battery life
- Nice, magnetic charging case with a healthy battery life
Cons: - Does not pair easily to your device
- No volume control on the earbuds themselves
- Doesn't clearly indicate the battery percentage of the earbuds
- Less than optimal touch responsiveness
Overall Review: I was excited about these affordable bluetooth earbuds, especially to use for running. They were working just fine for the first couple weeks of owning them. The pairing process was atypical to what you'd find in other earbuds -- at least in my experience -- but they had a decent sound quality for the price. Don't expect heavy bass or outstanding sound quality, especially considering the price.
Although, I experienced a problem where my device would only play music through a single earbud; you can connect both earbuds to your device, but there is an additional process of pairing the two earbuds together once they've been connected via bluetooth, but I didn't receive the prompt to pair them again.
However, when going through the thicker manual, I fixed the problem. So long as you forget the earbuds from your phone, follow the instructions to place the earbuds back in the charging case, pull them out, hold the touch-sensitive pads for 5 seconds so that they turn off, then hold the touch-sensitive pads again for approximately 10 seconds (the manual says 7, but it took about 10, just wait for the audio cue), the earbuds will turn back on then off again and reset. Then place them into the case, close the lid, then open it up again and put them in your ears and try pairing them again to your device. They should be fine after that. I got the prompt right away after pairing just the right earbud.
These earbuds are decent for the price that you pay, but expect to encounter problems on occasion. In other words, it isn't the seamless experience that you'd expect for tech in 2021.
Pros: -Good price
-Supports Ryzen 7 3700X out of the box
-No BIOS update
-Easy to navigate BIOS
-Plenty of fan headers
-Tons of SATA ports
-2 PCIe x16 ports
Cons: -Has a brown tint to the motherboard so it's a little ugly, but nothing some tempered glass and RGB can't fix
Overall Review: Overall a great motherboard and it is an absolute bargain for the price. Some "higher end" pricier motherboards don't even support overclocking to 3600Hz so I'm amazed that this little fella can handle it.
Pros: -6 RGB 120mm Fans included
-Nice front panel headers
-RGB Fan controller included
-Tempered glass is well made
-Magnetic dusk filters on the top and the bottom of the case
Cons: -Fans come preinstalled so installing the motherboard connections can be tricky, but you can fix that by removing the fans
-The RGB fan controller only supports a 5v 3 pin connection, while most motherboards have a 12v 4 pin
-Cable management is tricky given that the 6 fans come with tons of excess wiring and a RGB fan controller
Overall Review: The RGB fan controller can be tricky to deal with if you don't have a 5v 3 pin connection on your motherboard. On the other hand, the controller comes with a molex connection too, so it should be fine. The case is an absolute bargain for the price and the number of amenities that come with the case such as the 6 fans, the good construction of the case itself, and the handy front panel connections. Cable management can be a little tricky in this case as the 6 fans creates a bundle of wires that you'll need to tie up and stuff into the PSU shroud of the case. Other than that, the case has plenty of grommets for your front panel connectors, USB, GPU, 24 pin, CPU power, etc. I would recommend this case but first time builders will definitely experience a bit of trouble.
Pros: -Easy installation
-Easy to set up
-Works like a charm
Cons: -They send the driver on a Mini CD and I didn't have an optical drive that could read a Mini CD
Overall Review: Despite the issue with the driver being on a Mini CD, I was able to get the driver for the Intel Wireless AC 9260, which is basically what this WiFi card needs, onto a USB from another computer and I was able to download it that way. Just as a slight mention, I couldn't find this specific product on the fenvi website for driver downloads, so it's better to just go with the Intel driver.
On another side note, the WiFi card wouldn't power on when populated in one of my motherboard's PCIe x4 slots, but luckily the motherboard I have comes with two PCIe x16 slots and after plugging it into that slot, it functioned properly.
WiFi signal is strong. Haven't had a dip in WiFi signal yet. I recommend this card if you do not have access to an Ethernet cable.
