Pros: It has good power output and has survived everything i've thrown at it since 2009. It's now almost 2015
Cons: It's got enough cables to be called a Kraken, and they're stiff.
Other Thoughts: I wish it was still available for purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The headset has worked for me for several years, and still sounds good and working like it was new.
for around $80 (the headset is often on sale), it's a pretty good deal. Despite not being true surround sound, it does emulate it pretty well.
Since the charger for the headset is just microUSB, you can use any standard cable as a replacement.
Cons: Microwave ovens, bluetooth devices, and wireless mice can sometimes interfere with this headset (and vice versa). From the headset's end, you'll notice it occasionally cutting out as it finds a different frequency band to work on.
The device is not true 7.1 surround sound, as it only has 2 physical speakers and then uses software emulation to get the illusion of surround sound.
The equalizer's preamp has been disabled in logitech's drivers (on versions after 8.40) for reasons regarding EU compliance, opting to adjust it automatically behind-the-scenes. This is bad because the headset suffers from bass distortion, and the preamp was previously a way to squeeze better base from the headset. Don't blame logitech, blame the EU regulations.
Other Thoughts: Occasionally the mic mute feature does stops functioning temporarily after wireless reconnects with the dongle. This happens rarely and is minor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great airflow, space for upgrades, a solid and futureproof case.
Cons: The top mount for fans can be difficult to remove, as well as the front dust filter, but those are minor.
The wheels are easily broken and near impossible to find good replacements for. You may want to find third-party case feet to replace the wheels should they break, because Cooler Master almost never has them in stock for replacement.
