Astro Gaming A30 PC Gaming Headset - League of Legends Edition

4 out of 5 eggs Nice Features 10/19/2014

This review is from: Astro Gaming A30 PC Gaming Headset - League of Legends Edition

Pros: Headset is able to be unplugged at every point you would want which is nice if something breaks would be easy to be able to just replace a certain part.

The speakers are able to be rotated 90 degrees so it will stay close to your head/ears at all times.

The materials seem to be good quality, all gold plated connectors.

It has a mute button right next to the mute slider switch which is great for when you need to cough or make some obnoxious noise just press a button to temp mute yourself.

You can get redesigned ear phone covers even custom designed ones which is very cool, the covers are easy to change and it comes with two different ones.

Good sound quality. Mids and highs sound great.

Works with cell which is nice.

The noise cancellation is amazing, I can listen to music very loud and it still only picks up my voice when I talk I really like that.

Cons: The only problem I have is when I hit the mute button and then let go it does not pick up my voice for about 10 sec after I release the button.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if there is something wrong with my headset or it's a common thing, but it seems when I mute the headset with the slider and other people are talking they are able to hear themselves from me, Not even sure how that is happening.

Pros: Stock boost settings are pretty good. They go up to 1201 mhz core clock for me.

Customer service is great, first card had a screaming fan(bearing loud as could be.) Sent them an e-mail got a response with in 30 min. I was in the first 30 days they offered to pay for shipping both ways and replace the card.

Cons: First one was DoA bad fans.

This cards fan is incredibly loud above 2000 RPM if you use a headset or have music going it's not going to bother you as much. I have a feeling it's the set up of the fans that makes it loud and not the quality of the fans.

The heat! This thing runs hot it could be that the heat sync was put on poorly or something but even at idle it doesn't drop below 40 degrees, under full load it get's in the mid to upper 70's. I have a well ventilated case with several 120mm fans and 220 mm fans on it but I have never had a GPU run that hot even overclocked.

Other Thoughts: MSI z87 mPower mobo

Pros: I have owned this monitor for 10 months now.

The colors are very rich and bright, I have it setting next to my LG TV and it blows it away on the colors and quality of the screen.

The Default menu options are actually useful where as most tv/monitors always seem to look a bit off.

The swivel stand works great haven't had any issues with it at all, I could see it being a bit flimsy at times but I rotate it daily 90+ degrees and still do not have any issues.

The high adjustment is pretty good as well. Can get about 5" out of it pretty easily and it has held up well so far.

Easy and quick to put together and start using.

Comes with a standard set of 3d glasses and a clip on set in case you wear glasses.

Cons: 3d is useless for the most part, if you own nvidia you will have to purchase additional accessories for it. Only 60hz (which I knew about going into it. And you should as well if you read the specs.)

The 2d to 3d conversion they have built in only seems to add a bit of depth for what ever you're viewing. You also have to be looking at a certain range from it and have it adjusted Perfectly then it will get about 60%-70% of the screen

The menu user settings were pretty lacking not much to adjust or change.

Other Thoughts: Cannot overclock this pretty much at all, got about 70hz and that was it. I was able to get 2560x 1440 on the screen res no problem. Though I did not try to go any higher on the screen reso.

Personally I wish I would've skipped on the 3d and just got a higher hz/resolution monitor for the money. But I cannot complain it has been good so far
