Most Favorable Review

Large Capacity, Cheap Price, Amazing Speed !

HP EX950 M.2 2280 2TB PCle Gen3 x4, NVMe1.3 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 5MS24AA#ABC
HP EX950 M.2 2280 2TB PCle Gen3 x4, NVMe1.3 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 5MS24AA#ABC

Pros: - Runs cool - 2TB Capacity - Very high speed (more details under) - Great Price (Almost half the price of other 2TB PCIe ssds, but also faster)

Cons: Virtually zero cons

Overall Review: I wanted to get rid of my 2.5'' drives and all the cluster of cables (Sata and power) and this drive saved me. I went from a Samsung 960 Evo 500GB to this HP EX950 2TB and here are the benchmarks results using AS SSD 2.0.6821 with 3GB file size: - Sequential Read/Write MB/s :.EX950 = 2953 / 2693 | 960 Evo = 2532 / 1579 - 4K Read/Write MB/s :...............EX950 = 57.85 / 137.61 | 960 Evo = 39.92 / 121.20 - 4K-64Thrd Read/Write MB/s :.EX950 = 1384 / 1431 | 960 Evo = 1005 / 607 - Access Time in MS :..................EX950 = 0.025 / 0.081 | 960 Evo = 0.068 / 0.093 - Final Score Read/Write:...........EX950 = 1738 / 1838 | 960 Evo = 1298 / 886 Total Score : 4461 2806 As you can see, the EX950 is a beast, it compares to a 970 evo but twice as cheap for the same capacity. The 5 Year waranty is very gracious of them.

Most Critical Review

No bass in left ear

Corsair H2100 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
Corsair H2100 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: - Lightweight - Good looking - Very soft earpads

Cons: When they came in, the left ear had no bass. It creates a mixed sound and makes you dizzy.

Overall Review: Buy paying a over 100$ headset, I thought it would be high quality. I had the 2000 for over a year and gave them to my brother, I wanted to buy the 2000 again but could only find the H2100. If you compare the two, the H2100 feels more premium but fragile at the same time. Like I said, my pair came with the left ear lacking bass compared to the right ear. When on your head you have the impression that the Left ear is Louder but it actually lacks bass. I tried them for 30 minutes before having a headache since both ears are not on the same level of sound. Very disappointed in the quality of recent Corsair products. I did an RMA for a Replacement instead of Refund to give Corsair a second chance. Now I'm stuck playing without a headset for a unknown period of time.

Wonderful

Pros: - Very good looking - Big heatsink - Feels premium

Cons: A bit expensive for CL16 but 3200MHz still gives 10ns access time so good in my opinion.

Premium feel !

Samsung Galaxy S9+ 4G LTE 6.2" Unlocked Smart Phone with 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM, Titanium Grey, SM-G965WZAAXAC
Samsung Galaxy S9+ 4G LTE 6.2" Unlocked Smart Phone with 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM, Titanium Grey, SM-G965WZAAXAC

Pros: Went from Oneplus One to Axon 7 to this, I can say it's day and night. Everything is snappy and fluid. The battery is insane, after some light game, browsing, youtube and spotify I come home with still more than 60% battery left.

Cons: None that I can think of right now after a week of using it.

Overall Review: The headphone jack is so handy when you need to plug your friend's speakers quickly or just don't have a wireless headset laying around.

If you want to see magic, this is it.

ASUS VG248QE 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (GTG) 144Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED NVIDIA 3D Gaming Monitor
ASUS VG248QE 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms (GTG) 144Hz DVI-D HDMI DisplayPort Built-in Speakers Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED NVIDIA 3D Gaming Monitor

Pros: Truly amazing. 24", 144hz, 1080p. Just wow. I was having an old samsung 20" 1600x900 60hz and this asus screen just blown my eyes away! I rarely write reviews, but I take time to share my experience with you guys that can't decide between some screens. The answer is simple. it starts with VG and ends with 248QE. I never saw this anywhere on the box or videos, but you have pre-set modes. Theater, Gamer, Scenary, etc. I always takes Theather Mode for gaming. Makes the sky, grass, ocean even beautifuller (what?). Some people don't care of HZ but I game since 4 years now, and I always had 60hz monitor. 144hz (or 120hz) DOES makes a difference in ANY game. Smoother, more precision, better view, etc!

Cons: Even at 35% Brigthness, it's still bright when browsing on white sites (newegg for exemple). And the speakers are very not loud. Just enough to watch movies without speakers or headphones.

Overall Review: No need to go with 27" or higher then 1080p, your eyes won't even see the difference. This is just amazing for gaming, movies, creations etc. I currently have a GTX 560ti and it does not give 144FPS in all games (no way :P) but if you have a GTX 670 or higher, you will see what is 144hz.
