A Great new Soundcard from Creative Labs

Posted

Pros: As with most sound cards, Audio is much better than Onboard sound processors

Cons: Packaging is a little flimsy, Cant turn the LED lights off

I Ordered This SoundCard as soon as it was available on Newegg. It had been listed for about a week but was shown as being Out of Stock. Newegg Used OnTrac to ship this item and got it to me today. At first glance, The packaging appears to be nice, But if you look closer, you can see that the window on the Card's Cover is clouded by what appears to be the Fake Felt that is used on the internal packaging which has rubbed off and flown around inside the box. Here we can see they did indeed use some sort of spray-on or other type of fake felt on the internal packaging. The card is secured to the packaging by 3 wire ties. Creative must not have anticipated vibration inside the...

Fast SataII SSD for a Great price

Posted

Pros: $1/GB. some of the best performance for Sata II

Cons: Not Sata III. Sandforce controller slows down on uncompressible data

Before buying this drive i had a Samsung 830 Series 64GB SSD used as a games SSD in my main rig. it was almost full (with only 4-5 games on it) so i needed something bigger. when i saw this deal i had to jump on it. Pros: The price at $1 per gigabyte is almost unbeatable for SSDs. its the same amount that i paid for my first 60GB SSD. Using Sean's SSD guide i was able to format the drive and get the games i had on the previous SSD copied and up and running in about 10 minutes (transferring from an external conventional HDD) So far it has performed just as fast or faster for loading Maps in BF3. i have experienced no issues with it. Cons: It isnt Sata III. I knew this going in and tbh i...

Great little adapter

Posted

Pros: Good design and idea, price is great

Cons: locking tab could be stronger

Ive got 2 SSDs in my rig, and the stock 3.5"-2.5" adapters they came with were not standardized or very nice looking. they didnt sit in the same spot and it was almost like a waste of 2 drive bays. this little guy was a great help. Pros: I was able to move my SSDs further into the drive bay so they weren't interfering with my GPU power cables. it allows for 2 2.5" drives to be in a single 3.5" bay. its nice and sturdy once you get it in there. At 10.99 it is a great buy. Cons: i find the locking clip on the front to be a little lacking. when pushing the power cables into the SSDs it can come undone. Other thoughs: i had to re-make the end of my Sata Power cable with some 90deg sata...

Experience the WNR3500L-100NAS

Posted

Pros: Open Source Firmwares available. strong wireless connection quality. great value

Cons: NAS Device support is spotty. not N600. channels must be set manually for each device when in repeater mode

The WNR3500L-100NAS Router is a great start to any home wireless network. It is an incredible value at $70 for the performance it offers out of the box. I received my first WNR3500L-100NAS through the FCC's Samknows Broadband Test program. The first people to sign up for this program got one of these routers with a special firmware that tests your broadband connection performance, for free. Anyone can join this program, but you must purchase the modified box from the SamKnows website. After plugging the Router in behind our DSL Modem/router, my family noticed an immediate improvement in wireless signal quality for everything that we did. The WNR3500L is Also IPv6 Compatible, and when...

My Thoughts on the G930 Headset from Logitech

Posted

Pros: Sound quality Good, No risk of tripping over your cables. Battery lasts long enough for most sessions. Replacement batteries are available

Cons: 2.4GHz Wireless can interfere with nearby Wireless networks. Headset is difficult to power cycle.

The Pros: The Logitech G930 Headset is a High Quality Headset that can stand up to alot of torture. Ive slept with them on for some time I was a little reluctant at first, to switch from my Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer Soundcard to a USB audio processor based Headset, but i had received a $50 off coupon code from Logitech, and after my experience with the quality control lacking Turtle Beach Ear-Force HPA2 Headset, i bit the bullet. In My experience, Sound quality is on par with my add-on Creative card, and not having to plug in 5 different cables for 5.1 channel audio is definitely a plus. The build quality and design is much better than other headsets i have owned, and it is comfortable...
