Most Favorable Review

Absolutely fantastic!!!

Blue Snowball USB Microphone - Gloss Black
Blue Snowball USB Microphone - Gloss Black

Pros: Great sound quality, Good quality cable, thick wires like high end speaker cables, Looks darn good! Nice glossy finish with chrome emblem, Really nice stand, it is plastic but it high grade molding, Screws on to standard mounts, Plug and Play installation with Win 10

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: i purchased this microphone to use with Dragon voice software. I am a quadriplegic with impaired speech. My brother mounted it for me and plugged it in, I adjusted the device settings, and it was ready to go. I am running Dragon 12.5 under Windows 10 on an older AMD based system but it has a MSI 790FX-GD70 which has better audio than my newer ASUS 990FX system. Even with my "less than natural" voice it only took about 30 hours to work my old computer entirely with my voice. I use the microphone positioned about 3" from my mouth. The performance is consistent regardless of the ambient noise. My computer sits less than 3' to my side and there is a fan on the floor right in front of me, neither one affects my use of the microphone. (the computer has 4 device fans and 4 case fans including 2 Cougar Vortex fans- it ain't quiet, the fan on the floor is set to high when it's on) This microphone is 103mm dia. and 480g, to you peeps not up to speed yet, that is about 4" and a touch over 1lb.. I am thrilled with how well this microphone works and love the way it looks, I hope the additional info I provided helps give some real world context to good this thing really is. If this microphone works for me, it will work for anyone.

Most Critical Review

Weak and unreliable connection

StarTech.com PCI300WN2X2 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Works, almost all the time.*

Cons: * Week inconsistent connection, somewhere between slow to nothing transfer rate.

Overall Review: If you're looking for an internal Wi-Fi card, this ain't it… I get a better connection with a USB device I bought for half the price. This card gets 0-1 bars almost all the time and the USB gets 3 bars consistently. Don't buy this.

not happy

Pros: Trusted brand... Not too expensive..

Cons: Constant issues with regular DVDs

Overall Review: I installed this drive and I have had trouble from the start when trying to watch standard DVDs. I kept sending DVDs back to the rental service because I thought it was the DVDs. Finally realized it was the drive. Replaced with a Lite–On drive and every DVD works just fine.

Good PSU, but less than expected.

CORSAIR RMx Series RM550X 550W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply
CORSAIR RMx Series RM550X 550W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Consistent stable power… Fully modular PSU at a low price… Silent!!! The fan turns off after initial startup and rarely ever comes on… Good quality stranded cables.

Cons: Not really any*

Overall Review: This really is a nice PSU for the price. I was surprised to find normal heavy gauge stranded cables instead of the ribbon cables my previous Corsair PSU's came with. As mentioned earlier this thing is completely silent after startup, the fan is temperature controlled and has never came on except under extreme loads. *My only issue with this PSU is the location of the cable ports. I didn't pay close enough attention when looking at the photos because all the connectors are located along the bottom edge… This prevented me from installing it with the fan up like I prefer. I usually use the PSU as a extra exhaust, but since this one doesn't have Corsair LINK it really doesn't matter. In hindsight, I wish I had purchased a different PSU but this one is working great so it's a keeper.

A really good fan

Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Red LED Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan (CO-9050017-RLED )
Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Red LED Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan (CO-9050017-RLED )

Pros: Very quiet… Descent price… Really good red color LED's.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Corsair must have made some improvements to this model because they are much quieter than the ones I purchased previously. No, they are not as quiet as Noctua fans but they are pretty close. Corsair is my "go to brand" for LED fans. I have never had one that was DOA or that failed. I installed 4 AF series fans in my new Corsair Obsidian 450-D, 2 x 140mm (front) and 2 x 120mm (bottom intake and rear exhaust). Most system temperatures run only a few degrees above room temperature. (A Corsair H110i /w ML-140 on intake is mounted in the top and the PSU is mounted fan down)

Very Impressed

MSI Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card RX 580 GAMING X 8G

Pros: Great performance Great looking Extremely QUIET

Cons: Not many options on LED control

Overall Review: I chose this GPU because it has a metal back plate, the price, and the colors to go in my all black and red build. This card has more power than I will ever need but the advantage is the fans rarely ever come on which makes it totally silent most of the time. I used a Cooler Master vertical GPU mount to help show it off.

Great service

The package arrived quickly just like from Newegg… When I decided to return the item I purchased, I received a quick response and they were very helpful and totally cooperative… I will buy from them again if the opportunity arises.
