This review is from: Logitech G330 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: Comfy, simple plug and play, sound quality is sharp (see below in Cons for the "but"...).
Cons: Worried about the "cheap" plastic that was used for the extender part. I was hoping it was a metal piece, but it most certainly is plastic. Though I dont plan on doing anything that would endanger the integrity of the strap, it is something to be aware of.
Sound quality is SHARP, but there is a sever lack of bass coming from the speakers. I wonder, though, if it has something to do with my computer settings and not the headset. I will adjust and update as needed.
Other Thoughts: Not that it matters, but the "microphone" silencer switch on the inline pad does not work when using the headset with Ventrillo. Not that I would ever use it, but during my testing and setup, I wanted to know about all the features.
It DOES work, however, with all other applications.
Pros: Considering everything, this is by far one of the easier installs ive had to contend with! Unfortunately the drivers on the OEM CD were out of date (to be expected). The plug and play feature installed the correct and most recent drivers before I had even put the cd in the tower.
After figuring out what had happened, I proceeded to the NVIDIA Website to get the correct drivers, and it was simple as breathing. Now I am running WoW on ultra at 60-70FPS without lag, inworld and in dunegon/raid.
Cons: So far none!
Other Thoughts: A few things to mention: I downloaded and started using coretemp application so i could monitor my CPU core temps to make sure I wasnt getting any overheating (see earlier post). After 10 hours under load (WoW on ultra, running 2 screens, and a movie on the other screen), the temp never got above 34C*. I am highly impressed. I still ordered 2 new fans to be on the safer side, but otherwise I am pleased.
Also, should note (idiot move alert!) I removed my tower side panel to look inside WHILE the computer was on (i know, idiot move). Everything checked out while I was checking around, however when i went to put the side panel back on, I created a static shock INTO THE CASE. Now, for the 10 sec's i wasnt breathing and no heart beat, the computer only restarted. Ran a diagnostic and everything is running well. Just wanted to point out that this card seems to be pretty strong and resilient.
Same Specs from earlier post apply.
Pros: Card came in quick fashion, was incredibly easy to install. Was very happy with the build and the setup of the hardware itself. The DVI outputs are very clear, and the VGA-DVI adapter was certainly a benefit, saving me another component cost and shipping. Def a plug and play, as long as you have internet connection.
As for gaming and usage, after just Day-1, it has done very well. Ran it on ultra playing WoW for 9 hours (Raiding, dunegons, etc), and it was always above 40FPS, except for one instance where it never got above 10FPS during a fight, but I believe this was to be expected considering cross-realms, server response time, and internet connection speed.
Cons: So far the only cons (and the only thing that I could think to take 1 egg off for) was the amount of heat this card puts off. I dont have a "big" tower by any stretch, but decently sized to allow ample air flow. The tower temp was consistently over 52C*. So I am considering getting additional tower fans.
