3 out of 5 eggs Junk 01/29/2013

This review is from: RAZER ORCA 3.5mm Circumaural Headphone

Pros: Adjustable, decent sound quality

Cons: Ridiculously short lifespan. Two different pairs completely stop working on one side after within a 4 month period.

Pros: Ample performance for pricepoint. Easily runs DX10 games at native resolution. Noise footprint is quiet and great for note-taking in class or at conferences.

Cons: Battery-life of 2.5 hours.
Noise footprint increases significantly under load.
Speaker beep for volume keys is a bit loud. Display has very noticeable light-skewing; a little more than I'd expect of a TFT.

Other Thoughts: The touchpad takes some getting used to, but has amazing functionality from zoom gesture to edge-scrolling. Pre-loaded goodies are not that intrusive and are removed easily if you find them irritating.

Pros: Solid performer, known brand, the numbers say it all.

Cons: Very specific configurations may be required. Overclocking was spotty.

Other Thoughts: Using a Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard with F3 bios. Default XMP sets the voltage 0.15v too low. If it's not on profile 1 and enhancement is not set to Turbo (default), it may not post.
