    WD makes an amazing SSD in the SN850

    The WD Black SN850 1TB SSD with heatsink is a high performing SSD option. With a small form factor and great build quality, this SSD looks fantastic! It is extremely easy to install and I can’t say enough about the speed!! So good! Worth every penny. The 1TB is a good option for PS5 owners looking to expand their storage. At 1TB, it more than doubles the PS5’s available space. Given the size of the games, it is worth considering the SN850 2TB, if you can find one. You’ll be extremely happy with either.

    Super easy install

    The only downside to this is that it didn’t come out sooner! Now that it’s out they’re hard to find but if you get your hands on one then you won’t be disappointed. One of the fastest M.2 SSDs and comes with a built in heat sink (a must have for the PS5). Took me five minutes to install and that includes taking the pics. Enjoy!

    Compared with the Huntsman Elite V1 Optical Purple

    Let me start out with I have both versions of the Huntsman Elite V1 Purple (Phantom Pudding ABS Caps) and Linear Switch (PBT Doubleshot Caps). I put the Huntsman V2 Purple (right) next to the Huntsman Elite V1 (left). In this review, I am comparing the purple switches V1 vs V2. I am not going to tell you which is better as this feels like a preference thing,

    DIFFERENCES:

    -V2 Wrist is more slanted and fully cushion rather than plastic outlier on the V1. The magnet is also less strong but still works pretty well.

    -V2 does not have RGB lights around the keyboard (see photos)

    -V2 keyboard is also more slanted at the highest level of keyboard prop up (see photos)

    -V2 keyboard has a larger volume dial and is not slanted while the V1 is slanted on the outside.

    -Typing on the V2 feels like it is easier to press down on than the V1, like an easier press.

    -V2 Cushion feels softer (probably because no plastic outlier)

    -V2 has 8000hertz polling rate and feels quicker to register than the V1 (might be a mental thinking thing though, but it does feel like it registers better on the V2 optical purple than the V1 optical purple).

    -V2 only has 1 USB vs. V1 has 2 USB (1 for keyboard and 1 for the RGB on wrist)

    -V2 Lighting seems to be brighter compared to my other V1 PBT Cap (note my V1 Purple switch uses the Phantom Pudding caps so it let's light out more on the back of the keys so I compared it with my linear V1 with Razer PBT).

    -V2 to me the sound is a little louder. The only part that's not loud is when you bottom out, the V2 sounds softer. But the clicks itself on the V2 sound louder than the V1.

    -V2 feels like it's easier to type with

    SAME

    -Material feels the same

    -Optical Switch but V2 is Generation 2. Honestly can't tell the difference. I feel like it's more about the key press than the switch between V1 and V2 optical.

    Off Topic: The Razer Phantom Pudding ABS keycaps let a lot of light out because it's clear on the back of each keycap. PBT honestly has a better cleaner look for photos but looking at it, the ABS Phantom keycaps look cooler. Too bad it's not ABS =\

    PERSONAL: I prefer the V1 just because I like the RGB lights and I don't like the slant on the V2 keyboard when typing. The V2 is definitely overall better, but I like that it doesn't have RGB around the keyboard for a cool RGB look. Maybe they will make a V2 Elite that adds the lights.

    V2 is definitely a better investment than the V1 (and the same price if you buy Razer PBT caps to replace the V1 keys). If you like the RGB around keyboard, higher prop, flatter layout than slanted keyboard of the V2, and don't mind 2 USBs, I would stick with the V1. If you look for which is better, that's obvious that the V2 is better.

    Best game in Switch !!!

    Really great gaming experience. Smooth as butter, great music, fun sound effects, very immersive. We've come a long way from Kart 64. I haven't really played much video games since the N64 (skipped both the Wii and WiiU, so I kinda feel like an old man jumping back into the World of Nintendo). It's made me feel like a kid again, and with how much stress I've been under these last few years with my health... that's a pretty big deal to me. Thank you, Nintendo.

    Best Mario Kart to date

    First off let me say that I bought and played this game since day 1 it was released back on the Wii U so I have already put many hours into it before now. That being said even if you bought and played this on the Wii U it is well worth the price of picking up again on the switch.

    The battle mode is the biggest improvement over the Wii U version, but not the only one. Switch version runs at 1080p vs 720p on Wii U, it comes with all the paid DLC and of course the best feature... you can play it anywhere you want via handheld mode and it is absolutely gorgeous in handheld mode and on a TV.

    If you have never played.... buy it yesterday.... if you have it on Wii U... still buy it.

    As always I would recommend anyone buying video games to get the BestBuy Gamer club, it provides great year long discounts and since I have joined BestBuy is pretty much only place I get any physical games anymore. Great money saver.

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: The Definitive Edition!

    I've been wanting to get Mario Kart 8 since the Wii U, but never had the chance to get it. I'm glad I waited and got the Deluxe version of Mario Kart 8 for the Nintendo Switch. It's so much fun playing Mario Kart 8 on the go! :)

    The graphics look beautiful in 1080p HD. The new racing tracks are really creative. There are some returning retro tracks that have been completely revamped for Mario Kart 8, such as Moo Moo Meadows (Wii), Yoshi's Circuit (GameCube), and Music Park (3DS).

    **DLC & MORE PLAYABLE CHARACTERS!**

    It adds all the DLC packs that were released on the Wii U. Plus, more characters have been added to Mario Kart 8. They added Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy with different color schemes to choose from, Bowser Jr., King Boo, Dry Bones, and an alternate costume for Link (Breath of the Wild tunic) - which was a free update that was added recently.

    **IMPROVED BATTLE MODES!!**

    The Battle modes on the Wii U were just reusing the racing tracks which made it too big to chase after other players. It seemed like battle mode was an afterthought and Nintendo realized they needed to add battle modes for when Mario Kart 8 was first released on the Wii U.

    In the Deluxe Edition, the battle modes are much better and they created some new battle modes. The arenas are smaller, like in previous Mario Kart games. One of the new battle maps has a Splatoon themed arena. Returning modes are Popping Balloons and Bob-omb Blast

    **CONTROLS**

    The controls feel great. There's even a new Smart Steering feature which makes driving and staying on the track easy for those who normally don't play video games that much. Nintendo even added more controller options such as Nintendo Labo Motorcycle and Vehicle.

    Overall, I had a lot of fun playing this game and I recommend this to anyone who likes racing games. Fun to play on your own or play with your friends and family!

    My island has become my sanctuary...

    I'll admit that I wasn't expecting to like this game as much as I do. My friends talked about New Leaf quite a bit when it was released, but I didn't play it at the time. I tried Pocket Camp, but didn't feel it was special enough to invest a significant amount of effort into.

    New Horizons, on the other hand, has been a lifesaver.

    The first thing that really convinced me was the sound effects-- the game's realistic ambient noise are both immersive and relaxing. Different shoes produce different noises on different paths! When you step on grass, it crunches like real grass! The wind sounds exactly like wind! Maybe I'm easily amused, but I'm always so happy just listening to my character walk on stuff.

    And since the game takes place in real time, it genuinely feels like a place I can escape to. The short days in Stardew Valley tend to stress me out, but with Animal Crossing, I can wake up at 7 AM and it'll be 7 on my island as well... and when an hour of real life passes, I don't come back to find that all my Sims either hate me or haven't moved.

    I was skeptical about the deserted island setting at first; I'm not much of a beach person. But I've been impressed at how effectively I can to make my island my own. And the environment is easy to navigate, even for people like me who are easily disoriented by rapidly-moving cameras.

    The characters are mostly cute and friendly, but there's enough of a sense of danger (is that the right word?) to keep the game from feeling overly sweet. Tom Nook is mildly exploitative, but not in a way that feels genuinely threatening. There are wasps and tarantulas/scorpions, but you don't necessarily need to battle them outright-- a net and quick reflexes will do, or you can hide in your house at night. Some of the villagers are awful, and it takes effort to get rid of them (just like real acquaintances tbh), but they won't actually hurt you. And it can be surprisingly fun to commiserate with other players about how much we all hate (or love to hate) a few particular characters.

    That's the key thing here, I think-- Animal Crossing offers social connections, but only if the player actually wants to connect. It's a lighthearted cultural phenomenon in a time when lightheartedness is more necessary than ever. New Horizons can be whatever we need it to be-- perhaps something with strict competitive deadlines, or just a place to run in circles with different shoes to see what sounds you can make. It's something that you can use to connect with others, or to hide in a very expensive basement with fifteen stacks of books. Maybe both.

    Of course, it does have flaws. The controls aren't as well-designed as they could be, and as a result, some simple tasks are more repetitive than they should be. The social features aren't always up to par, either-- the messaging system is convoluted and unwieldy, and having more than two friends on your island can be frustrating. Every time someone shows up or leaves, everyone has to watch a very slow, very predictable animation of them walking in or out of the airport gates.

    Still-- the pros massively outweigh the cons here. It's truly an excellent game.

  • Review by RichterEX2, 10 out of 10
    Excellent game for casual play.

    This isn't a game for those looking for an end goal. This is more of a "go at your own pace" kind of game that lets you explore, and eventually build and customize your own little island. Your storage inventory can be a bit cramped without constantly upgrading your house space, so keep that in mind as you have to save up a considerable amount of bells to afford said upgrades.

    The game gives you lots of opportunities to earn the bells though. Usually through fishing, bug catching, or even turnip trading if you're clever and patient. The game works off of real-time and even has seasons depending on hemisphere (northern or southern). The game could be in winter in the middle of July if you went with southern, but most will go with northern as it better matches North American climates. The animals in the game are quite helpful at times, so be sure to check up on them often, and remember important events such as their birthdays. Just remember to play often.

    You don't have to play every day, but it is recommended to pop in often to see how the villagers are doing, and to do the daily tasks such as fossil digging, harvesting crafting materials, and checking what the stores have for sale. If you're a fan of any of the previous Animal Crossings, then you'll definitely want this one if you have a Switch!

    May lead to a Divorce!

    I asked my husband for this game and the Animal Crossing Switch console and he gladly gifted them to me so I would stop my online shopping. Well...it worked! I no longer shop online (not to the extent I was used to) since I began this game in May2021.

    I am not a gamer and have never played video games till now.

    I cannot put it down!! Now my hubby complains about how much time I invest in playing this game. There have been heated arguments about how much time I spend on playing this game. Thank God for baseball/football games since I can play my game without conflict while hubby watches games.

    I feel like an addict—-automatically waking at 5am to play this amazing game!

    Now I’m going to buy my daughter a switch console and AC game so that we can share some game time together (visiting each other’s island). She’s away at school so it will be fun to connect with her via this game platform.

    This game is FUN, wholesome, and highly addictive.

    First Time Animal Crossing Player Here

    I’ve never played any of the Animal Crossing games before and a lot of people I knew were getting this game. I decided to get it as well.

    Best decision I made. (Even got my best friend addicted to it.)

    It’s a great game to play alone or even with friends. Learning the game was super easy. There is so much to do in the game and you can take your time doing it all. I’ve even heard there will be special events or something similar to that in the future. There’s even specific items that are seasonal items too.

    I do recommend this game (and I have to several of my friends as well.)

    Didn’t think i’d like, but am now obsessed

    Definitely a binge worthy game once i got started, thought i wouldn't like it since I didn’t like the first game for the 3ds, but this one is so much better. I like how it starts out with only a couple other people and slowly turns into a community, and theres way more to do, like crafting, which was non-existent in New Leaf, is a great addition to the game, cause there’s so many materials to work with. And you can customize your island with just about anything as long as you can build it or buy it, also Blathers museum got the best upgrade, might as well be a zoo and aquarium combined, oh, and an art exhibit. It does require a lot of grinding tho, like new materials don’t usually just pop up out of nowhere, u need to find them, so it becomes very repetitive. Kinda reminds me of minecraft how you need to gather and make stuff, except u can sell whatever you don’t need at Nooks Cranny for bells, and depending on what u have u can sell it for a good price, you can also sell stuff at the dropbox when the store isn’t open, which is a huge convenience, in case your pockets are full. Anyway, just an overall good game, i’m glad i bought it. Best Buy is also a good place to get it since it goes on sale there all the time, and you can combine the sale with any member coupons you have to be an even better deal!

    Wonderful game and a great escape!

    A week after receiving the game upon release I’ve been hooked and haven’t put the game down! It is a breath of fresh air despite what is going on in the world today, a great way to relax and keep calm in a world where you can’t get hurt! (Except by those wasps and bees!)

    Animal Crossing is a fantastic series of games, and this one hits the mark as the others have before it! If you need a relaxing and fun game to play, pick this one up and I’m sure that you’ll have a fantastic time!

    Got this controller because my original that came with my PlayStation 5 started having drift.

    Another cool collectible to add to my collection.

    Got the memory card to compete the accessories for my Nintendo Switch Lite. I love the red color and the Nintendo logo. It makes it look legit and very cool thing show to your friend. It reminds me the red memory card for the N64. If your a big fan of Nintendo you got to have it.

    More than enough

    This card turned out to be the red version with the mushroom head on it! I was super pumped to see that when I opened the package. I won't ever need to purchase another card, this thing has more than enough space, especially for someone like me who basically only purchases physical versions of games. Installing it is simple too, just place it under the kickstand on the back and then follow the instructions to update your system, poof you're done.

    Unable to format.

    With only 7 MB of space left, I got the 128 GB on sale and was excited to finally download the games I bought but didn't have the room to play but unfortunately this Sandisk seems to be defective.

    I turned the Switch off, put in the chip, and it said that it needed to be formatted (gives the option to do so right after), it then restarts the switch and the same formatting error pops up. I tried doing it through systems, taking out the chip, restarting the device and waiting for a while before trying again and the error still pops up.

    Looking around online, this error has happened to several people with this particular SD chip; the problem can be remedied by getting a new one that wasn't apart of the faulty batch.

    I plan on exchanging mine since the price was so good but I recommend skipping out on this one and getting a different SD altogether to avoid the chances of getting a broken one.

    MICRO!! works great

    These work great. I bought my twins the Switch a few years back. They barely used them. Well, now they want to use them all the time. I was unaware the memory in these are enough for maybe a game. So I was off to find storage. I bought some other scandisks unaware the one for the switch has to be a micro! Returned the others and was referred to these. They are made especially for the switch. Now all is right with the world and my twins can downloads tons of games. Thank you Scandisk for saving the day!

    SanDisk quality, but slightly overpriced

    Nintendo branded stuff is nice, but this SD card is overpriced, if you are a mega fan then I guess I can understand you wanting this but you are paying a premium for a painted version of a cheaper product. I think it’s awesome to have a nice looking SD card but this is something you would occasionally look at, with that said it’s a good reliable product, this is one of the best micro sd companies so it is a good product, but you are paying for the branding.

    Must have for any switch owner.

    I'd say, if you can afford it, bypass any smaller SD cards and jump to this one or something of a higher size. If you plan on buying lots of digital games on switch, this is definitely a must.

    A must have for switch owners

    the nintendo switch is a very good console, but storage is something it lacks. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage, to get more you must buy an SD card. I got this card on sale for 60$, and man is it worth it. I highly reccomend these while they are on sale, as the more expensive ones can be up to 100$ off!

    Lots of space for gaming

    If you play and download a lot of games then this 256GB memory card will be more than enough. I don't like having to deal with the hassle of deleting games just to make room for new ones. Also I bought this so I wouldn't have to keep switching different memory cards and I can just manage all my games in one.

    So much fun!

    When this game was first announced I wasn't interested at all. But I got caught up in the hype of Nintendo advertising and bought it. This is my first metroid game I am super bad at this game but I'm having the best time!! Yes, I've probably seen the game over screen 40+ times but I don't care! It's soo addictive I can't stop playing. It's so rewarding after you beat a boss or get rewarded for exploring. If you're on the fence about playing jump on over and get into Metroid Dread NOW! Totally worth $60 for me!! I even bought the collector's edition and amiibo.

    Metroid is back with great 2D classic action

    Awesome side-scrolling action. Challenging at times but still fun. A good mix of exploration and cool boss fights. Definitely worth it for a Metroid fan or anyone looking for a good side-scroller. There is a lot to like about this game. My one criticism would be a lack of direction for the player. It can take a bit to learn where the next objective is sometimes. Still a good time though and would recommend as a buy.

    Oct 16, 2021 16:28
  • Review by Hect, 10 out of 10
    Game of the year

    - Quick Summary: This game is absolutely phenomenal and is one of my favorite games of all time. If you love Metroidvanias or are new to the genre, drop what you are doing and play this game.

    - Exploration: 10/10: If you have ever played a Metroidvania, the exploration will feel right at home, and even though the world is massive, I don't think it will be too intimidating for newcomers.

    - Progression: 10/10: The way this Metroid game progresses is stellar as usual, and it finds a nice balance between backtracking and moving to new areas. You may get lost sometimes, however it's usual not for very long.

    - Atmosphere: 11:10: This game might just have the greatest atmosphere I have ever experienced in any game. The planet ZDR ranges from desolate laboratories to lush forests, and every environment is both engaging and lively, with incredibly detailed backgrounds that feel artistic yet alive. I can tell that a lot of effort went into the backgrounds, because they really sell the atmosphere of this game and add extra little details, which is always appreciated. I also love how the feeling of isolation and dread is felt exquisitely throughout the whole game.

    - Horror: 9/10: I would not consider Metroid: Dread to be a proper horror game, however it does have a lot of horror aspects. This is most prevalent in the E.M.M.I. stealth sections, in which an indestructible GLaDOS Demogorgon will chase Samus in designated areas of the map. When entering these rooms, the player will notice an immediate change in the environment. The music turns eerie, and even the visuals have become slightly dark and distorted. I love how these sections can be pretty tense and terrifying due to the fact that the E.M.M.I.'s are attracted to motion, and how these are threats that not even Samus has the means to take down. My only complaint about the horror aspects of this game is that I feel as if the E.M.M.I. sections could have had better placement throughout the campaign as a whole.

    - Combat: 10/10: I can safely say that Metroid: Dread has the best combat out of any Metroid game so far. It's fluid, fast-paced, and requires timing, aim, and skill. This game also has some of my favorite boss battles ever, and some aspects of combat even remind me of DOOM: Eternal, which is a very high compliment.

    - Music: 9/10: As usual, this Metroid game has an absolutely stellar soundtrack, full of songs that are both enjoyable to listen to yet also enhance the atmosphere.

    - Story: 9/10: I'm not going to talk about any spoilers, however I think the story is handled really well in this game. It would have been awesome to have lore entries like in the Prime games, however I was not expecting this since nothing like that has ever been done in a 2d Metroid game before. I also think that Samus as a character is handled spectacularly.

    - Visuals: 11/10: Metroid: Dread is another example of a graphical underpowered game that somehow looks gorgeous due to the incredible art-style and jaw-dropping lighting. This seriously has some of the best lighting I've ever seen in a 2d game and is certainly a contender for one of the best looking games I've ever played.

    - Final Score: 79/80

    Samus truely returns.

    SPOILER FREE REVIEW

    I went into the game blind, I saw the one teaser trailer and that was it. So I didn't exactly know what to expect.

    The game is solid with only arguable nitpicks I can throw at it.

    The problems/nitpicks:

    -You cannot use the dpad for movement. Something I wish I had the option for. The reasoning is likely they want you aiming precisely with your arm cannon but I find running around in a 2D platformer with an analog stick to be clunky and annoying.

    -The game's framerate can be oddly inconsistent, some have suggested this is a memory leak and COULD be patched. It's by no means a deal breaker, but it's really obvious when it happens.

    -Almost zero options, you can't remap any buttons, there's no alternate control schemes, you can't change the difficulty . The usual Nintendo thing they do for some reason.

    Onto the good:

    Visually the game is a treat, they capture a lot of detail in all the environments you explore, effects look really good and they have awesome art design that really shines through when you get a bit further.

    Audio wise I think it sounds really good, the weapons hit hard, the ambient noises are solid and the music is more atmospheric this time but it's fitting considering this game is leaning harder into the more tense horror.

    Story, without spoiling anything I will say this: They treat Metroid as a series and Samus with a lot of respect and do the series and Samus as a character justice.

    The game is highly replayable, not only is there a lot to explore, there's a lot of power ups and going faster & grabbing 100% of items is always a big draw to the series. Also this game has a bunch of sequence breaks and ways to deal with bosses because of that, that makes this game way, way more interesting on repeat playthroughs. I beat it and on my first playthrough it took about 7 hours.

    The game isn't a cake walk though and can challenge you for sure. I 100% recommend this game, it's a fantastic entry to the series and sequel to Fusion- a game I never thought I'd see them make a sequel for

    A Welcome Upgrade

    I purchased 2 of these to replace some non-functioning power strips that had become hazardous to use. I am very happy with this power strip and I have always been a user of APC products. The usb charge ports are not a fast charging type (at least according to my smart phone), but they work as advertised. The spacing and orientation of the outlets alloys for various types and sizes of power bricks or plugs to be used at the same time. I recommend these to anyone who needs a dependable power strip/surge protector. And yes this can be mounted to a bench or desk. One particular feature that you may like is the fact that the power switch cannot be accidentally used as it is recessed. I can't recall how many times my dog (Yes my dog) has accidentally stepped on a power switch, turning off a number of devices. This company has been in the business of power products for many years and is a brand I know I can trust to protect my electrical devices.

    Digital cards are a must. It’s very dangerous to put your credit card information on devices, and it’s not because of hackers, but because my nephew uses the PlayStation, and it’s all too easy to hit a button and buy Fortnite skins. This way I can limit what he buys on there.

    Good option to buy digital PlayStation games

    I prefer this option to add money to my PlayStation Store account for buying games from Sony over using the physical cards bought in brick and motor stores or directly using a credit card online. If this cash card were delivered a little faster and redeemable without issue, I would bump the review up to five stars.

    Specifically, I had an issue redeeming the card in Google Chrome on Windows 10. The email with the redeem link arrived 5 or 10 minutes slower than expected, and the link did not work in the Chrome browser (I got a vague error when trying to open it in that browser). I used Microsoft Edge to option the link and redeem it.

    Digital cards are a must. It’s very dangerous to put your credit card information on devices, and it’s not because of hackers, but because my nephew uses the PlayStation, and it’s all too easy to hit a button and buy Fortnite skins. This way I can limit what he buys on there.

    Good option to buy digital PlayStation games

    I prefer this option to add money to my PlayStation Store account for buying games from Sony over using the physical cards bought in brick and motor stores or directly using a credit card online. If this cash card were delivered a little faster and redeemable without issue, I would bump the review up to five stars.

    Specifically, I had an issue redeeming the card in Google Chrome on Windows 10. The email with the redeem link arrived 5 or 10 minutes slower than expected, and the link did not work in the Chrome browser (I got a vague error when trying to open it in that browser). I used Microsoft Edge to option the link and redeem it.

    PlayStation e-gift card

    Bought this for a gift. Had issues sending it through email. I would recommend purchasing an actual gift card as it was a pain getting transferred from representative to representative and not getting help.

    Must have for any switch owner.

    I'd say, if you can afford it, bypass any smaller SD cards and jump to this one or something of a higher size. If you plan on buying lots of digital games on switch, this is definitely a must.

    A must have for switch owners

    the nintendo switch is a very good console, but storage is something it lacks. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage, to get more you must buy an SD card. I got this card on sale for 60$, and man is it worth it. I highly reccomend these while they are on sale, as the more expensive ones can be up to 100$ off!

    Lots of space for gaming

    If you play and download a lot of games then this 256GB memory card will be more than enough. I don't like having to deal with the hassle of deleting games just to make room for new ones. Also I bought this so I wouldn't have to keep switching different memory cards and I can just manage all my games in one.

    A Welcome Upgrade

    I purchased 2 of these to replace some non-functioning power strips that had become hazardous to use. I am very happy with this power strip and I have always been a user of APC products. The usb charge ports are not a fast charging type (at least according to my smart phone), but they work as advertised. The spacing and orientation of the outlets alloys for various types and sizes of power bricks or plugs to be used at the same time. I recommend these to anyone who needs a dependable power strip/surge protector. And yes this can be mounted to a bench or desk. One particular feature that you may like is the fact that the power switch cannot be accidentally used as it is recessed. I can't recall how many times my dog (Yes my dog) has accidentally stepped on a power switch, turning off a number of devices. This company has been in the business of power products for many years and is a brand I know I can trust to protect my electrical devices.

    First time buyer, happy with my purchase.

    First time buying any iFixit product and I am very impressed with the quality. I needed to replace the fan on my Nvidia GTX 1070ti. Nvidia does not make it easy to get to the fan. I had to do a lot of disassembly but I had every bit I needed in this kit. I used a total of seven different bits for the project due to the different size/type of the screws.

    The included driver is magnetic so holding onto screws is a breeze. Also, the cover of this kit doubles as a sorting tray for screws if needed.

    Very well made and I highly recommend!

    Easy to use

    This kit is a must have for anybody working on Macs/iOS devices more than once. I had a pieces together assortment of tools I had assembled from screen replacements, battery replacements, etc. It was always hard to find the right one and took up a lot of space. This kit makes everything SO MUCH easier - takes up a fraction of the space of ~40 different stand-alone drivers, and every bit is labeled so it takes no time to grab the right one. Unexpected bonus: The case doubles as a pretty decent screw holder/organizer if you are doing a quick fix and don’t have your magnetic organizer mat with you! There are 40 approximately 1”x1” squares inside the top case with a slightly raised divider between them. Easy to get in there and grab your screws. The metal handle is great and I love the knurling on it. Overall, an awesome kit.

  • Review by ITGuy, 10 out of 10
    Very good value

    I'm giving it five stars, but it's not perfect. My IT office uses this and it's overkill for us. The driver is very nice, it's better than most tools I own. The case is magnetic which is amazing. The extension is very durable and can be used for anything where you need a little bit of a reach. The bits are very quality and all labeled on the bit which is very helpful for identifying them if they were to fall out. It's also just a pretty good value for what you're getting.

    The cons: For one, if you're getting this to repair all of your electronic gear, you should know it does not have a small enough size for a Samsung Galaxy active 2 smartwatch. Two: I would say this is not A large enough set for someone like a jeweler. With that said, this will be a outstanding set for anyone working on computers or hobbyists.

    I have been working on laptops, desktops and phones for years using subpar kits because I was cheap.

Wow I am so impressed, I have no idea why I didn't buy these sooner for precision drivers theses are hard to beat and work amazingly well.

    Designed by people who actually use these tools

    The black foam inserts are clearly labeled, so you know what bit you're using (because honestly, most DIYers just spam wildly until we find a bit that fits, rather than reading the labels). The handle is also magnetized, which makes this a huge deal. The blue cap swivels, so you can apply pressure with your palm as you spin the handle with your fingers.

    Lots of great bits included, but by far the most useful one is the straight pin. It's advertised as a SIM removal tool, and I use it to remove my Note 9 SIM. No more straightened out paper clips needed!

    Never Delete a Game Again

    I've been dealing with deleting games and making room for new on new ones on my PS5 for a year now, and I'm so glad I finally went out and bought this. It gives you peace of mind as you almost will never have to worry about storage space again. You can store PS5 and PS4 games on it, and can play PS4 games directly from the hard drive. To play PS5 games, you just need to move it back to the internal storage, but it's a quick process. The hard drive itself is very sleek and is actually much smaller than I thought. I had no issues setting it up at all with my PS5, it was very easy to. It's 100% worth the money and I highly recommend it.

    A necessity for PS5 owners

    This external hard drive is an absolute must if you own a PS5. 5TBs of games including PS5 games can be installed on this. True, you have to move the PS5 games to your PS5 in order to play, but it gets rid of your PS5 running out of space so soon. Load times are really fast even on PS4 games and I haven't filled this thing up even after throwing some truly massive games on it (Avengers, COD, RDR2).

    The Mario Party we have been waiting for!

    This is what we have been waiting for in the Mario Party franchise. The previous Mario Party thag came out 2 years ago or so was okay but fell short. However, this game, Mario Party Superstars, goes back to the roots, brings back classic boards and minigames, has updated visuals, and retain all the charm of what makes a Mario Party game. The controls are spot on. The boards have much variety with the original board mechanics that made them fun. The mini games are excellent. This game really did take the original and mastered it for present day on the newest Nintendo console. Another huge pro is that it comes with online play out of the box! It would be really cool to see more boards to be added to the game from the N64 days. But for now, this game is great. If you want to have some multiplayer fun and make some memories with friends and family -- pick this up!

    The Party still continues

    Mario Party returns again in a new collaboration from the hit Party series. Yes. From 1-10. Take control of your favorite Mario characters and Party on in 5 nostalgic boards from the past such as Peach’s Birthday cake from Mario Party 1, Woody Woods from Mario Party 3, and Horror Land from Mario Party 2.

    Gameplay is like any other Mario Party game, you roll the dice move to a space, grab some coins, spend those coins to get a star, witness an event, and play mini games after each turn. Whoever gets the most stars becomes a superstar and earn coins to spend on unlockables such as stickers, music and more. There are 100 mini games (Including Tug-Of War) that can be played for practice or against players wether local or online to earn more coins to spend and unlocking achievements.

    Grab your party hats, cake, pizza, an unfriend list and let the party begin.

    A refreshing nostalgia trip

    This is the best Mario Party has been in a long time! After the disaster that was the WII U edition of this game I had been losing hope that there would ever be another truly great version released. Mario Party Superstars delivers and then some.

    From the selection of games & maps to the online multiplayer just about everything is done to perfection. My only gripes with the game are I wish there were more maps (not that I don't love what comes with the game I just find myself craving more) and I wish they would have included the story cinematics elements from early boards (I.e the yoshi love story from yoshi island).

    If you're new to the series or looking for a nostalgia trip this game is for you.

    Best "New" Mario Party

    Ever since the release of Mario Party 7, the newer versions of Mario Party on the NextGen consoles have seemed slightly rushed and didn't really maintain the same nostalgic feel the others have. I was pleasantly surprised to find this version captures that feeling perfectly and it even has samples and snippets from the older/games and maps to really magnify that. I wish there were more characters or maybe a create-a-map/custom map option at this point but overall; I am very pleased with this one in general and especially compared to the first one, 5/5!

    Star goals

    While there’s no innovation in this entry, that would be exactly the point. Past titles would try new things based on hardware release or something there other. Apparently fans disliked certain decisions and changes then. So this is like a “listen to the fans” release. This is just a collection of past mini games & boards with reworked graphics. It all works and plays like traditional Mario Party. Prepare for friendships to be tested with this one. Nostalgia is real.

    Worth every cent!

    Picture blew me away!! When I got home with it I watched the final two episodes of Squid Game on Netflix and can’t even count how many times I said Wow! I love the super low profile and how it hides all cords and looks amazing on my tv stand. This tv is so good my roommate came in after I setup and we watched the new trailers for Bond and Free Guy and he left my room saying he wanted to buy one. I’m just beyond impressed with how good the picture looks how quick it responds , the google tv is perfect. The sound is amazing and great amount of bass and how it reflects off the wall is impressive. I have 0 complaints about this tv . Just can’t wait for it to get the VRR which they are promising is coming. 10/10

    Love this tv. This is my first time buying an OLED TV and I realized now why there is such an big hoopla about picture quality of OLED vs LCD tvs. I have next level of admiration for 4K content through this TV now and colors along with intensity of black on screen is mind blowing. After buying this TV I am not sure I will ever go back to an any LCD tv, and yeah not even to those Samsung neo qleds. This TV is way ahead of the competition.

    I love this OLed tv. I did a lot of research and I decided on this one. Right out of the box the picture is phenomenal. I have had the TV for about three weeks now and so far I am very happy. I decided to take the extended warranty just in case. At first I was looking at the a90 but it was just way out of my budget and the A80 the picture was great I’m very happy with it so far highly recommend. I love my Sony.

    The most immersive experience I've had so far

    So I bought this tv a while back and I'm only now doing a review just because I was so busy just watching and enjoying content on the tv that I couldn't work up the will to interrupt my experience to make this. It truly is that impressive.

    First, I'm going to start with the smart features. Google tv with Sony is truly a match made in heaven.

    As we all know, previous android tv versions haven't been the most responsive and fluid experience so I was really shocked and impressed by just how nicely it runs on this set.

    In all the months I've had it, I've not once experienced an app or OS crash and only once did I ever experience something taking an extra second to respond to a click. Truly a leap forward in this experience and kudos to Sony for optimizing as well as they have with the chosen chipset.

    Moving into the meat of the review, the picture quality, this is definitely one of Sony's best showings I've ever seen. They've really gone all out in ensuring this is the next viewing experience you're ever going to have.

    The pictures I've attached don't do any justice to the real life experience of watching content. It really is one of the most immersive experiences I've had.

    The ability of the display to show all of the detail in the source is really remarkable it's something that you really need to experience.

    The scaling is so good that when I'm watching YouTube videos I don't even check the resolution anymore because it always looks so good. I don't know how many times I've been watching a video thinking that's it's 4k only to look and see it's actually streaming in 480p (darn YouTube auto setting).

    The color is also outstanding on this set, you don't get any of the forced saturation or not quite right hues that you can get from other tvs but that doesn't mean it doesn't pop out and make itself known when it needs to, it's just uses a balanced approach that ensures everything looks good and you don't get any artifacts or banding in the image.

    The same goes for the brightness of the set. If you really push it this thing is a light cannon (just switch anything to vivid mode) if you want it to be but it's brightness is best served in the controlled method that is usually Sony's preference. Rather than just having it always be "ON" it makes much more effective use of saving it where it will make the most impact and provide the most detail in the image.

    Motion is the last picture quality element that I wanted to touch on. I've felt with the X1 ultimate chipset that motion had taken a step back in some regards compared to the X1 and X1 extreme especially with the removal of the cinemotion high and low toggle with it just being an off or auto control and I was never able to reach a happy medium.

    I'm very happy to report this is no longer the case. The finetuned algorithm with the XR chip is very impressive and much more realistic to me especially with the restoration of the cinemotiin settings to really allow you to find what settings make you the most happy.

    I personally generally leave the smoothness and clearness motionflow settings at min and cinemotion on high so the cinemotion does all of the conversions and frame interpolation/blending but I've also enjoyed having smoothness at 1 and clearness at 1 to take advantage of X motion clarity so feel free to experiment and see what you like.

    Taken all together, one can't help but to marvel at how natural and pristine the image really is. They've really taken the holistic approach and revisited all of the pillars that make a Sony one of the best in the business. Watching shows, movies, videos on YouTube or playing games on one of the next gen consoles is always just super enjoyable.

    Regarding sound, it as always on the OLED models is really good especially with the new room calibration feature they've added for this year. If you don't have a soundbar or some external sound system, you don't generally need to rush out and get one (especially for those that want clear dialogue this tv excels at it) but for those really wanting to experience Atmos or DTS:X in all it's glory you will want to consider adding at least a soundbar on.

    Speaking of which, I had mentioned this before in one of my previous reviews as something that they should consider for the future but Sony has finally provided a way to allow the TV's to act as the center channel in a home theater system.

    When using one of the new Sony sound systems for this year (HT-A5000, HT-A7000, or HT-A9) you can connect it to the S Center Speaker input and have them work together as some other brands do with their TV's and soundbar. I'm really glad that Sony was thinking along the same lines I was and worked on making this feature because it does add that much more value to the package.

    Input lag when gaming is excellent. It's very fluid and there's no hint of any perceivable delay which is great.

    Really the only negative I have regarding the tv is that only 2 of the 4 HDMI Inputs are HDMI 2.1 compatible. I thought after the original hurdle that HDMI 2.0 provided we would've been past this but for HDMI 2.1 it's the same split experience.

    It's 2021 and this isn't the first year that HDMI 2.1 has been out nor is it the first time that a revision has happened in recent history so imo there is no excuse to only have 2 compatible ports ESPECIALLY when one of those ports is the eARC port so if you happen to have a sound system as well as a PC or more than one next gen console, you're going to have to make a compromise somewhere.

    All in all, I'm very impressed with the performance on offer here and truly do think it's one of the next experiences you can get.

    I can't declare it the definitive best because the A90J does have the heatsink for allowing higher peak brightness (although the A80J gets you about 90-95% of the way for 1k less in price in general) and as I reside in the states I can't speak on top-tier OLEDs from other brands (especially Panasonic who is also legendary in the industry) but taking all of the above performance for the price on offer I believe the A80J occupies the sweet spot that makes it the overall best pick and it should definitely be a top contender for anyone's purchase list.

    Great First Percussive Massager

    I’ve never owned a product like the Theragun Mini – but now I don’t see how I can live without one. The build quality is exquisite – a soft touch finish, weighty, and sturdy. The shape and design are easy in the hand and generally easy to wield.

    I was worried about how loud the unit would be, so I first tested it out with the door closed in the middle of the day. Family reported not even hearing anything. I used it in the evening with a sleeping toddler just down the hallway – no problem! It’s not silent, but it’s much quieter than I expected. People in the same room would notice it on, but in the next room with background noise, probably not.

    The first time I used it on some sore muscles were a little startling. Moving it across the back, the feeling quickly shifted from jarring to a very calming deep muscle massage. I’ve always enjoyed deep tissue massages and this fell into a similar realm of therapy, strangely with seemingly less discomfort.

    I wouldn’t call myself an athlete or an expert in percussive therapy. However, as a dad and full-time employee – my daily aches and pains have never melted away so fast.

    Pain Relief On The Go!

    Keys check, cell phone check, wallet check, Theragun Mini check! If you suffer any muscle or back pain, it will become that essential! The Theragun G3 was my first Theragun and I was a believer after my first use. The Mini now gives me the ability to easily travel with my Theragun and have relief anytime. I like to mountain bike and my ambitions of how far I can go in my mind, are further than my body and muscles want to! I had an experience with muscle cramping from riding to far on a hot day, the mini would have been a lifesaver If I had it at the time.

    The Mini comes with a nice travel pouch, one attachment and works with all the attachments from my G3. The Mini, just like my G3 feels very well made. The mini has 3 speed settings and low is perfect for doing your neck. The G3 only has 2 speeds and even the lowest speed could be a little to hard for some people when doing sensitive areas. The Mini is considerably quieter than my G3, but still has the power to loosen you up.

    The Theragun Mini gives you piece of mind that no matter where you are or what you’re doing, you always have muscle or back pain relief at your reach!

    Small Device. Big Performance.

    I was debating about getting this or the full size Theragun for 100 bucks more. Honestly, I don’t see why anyone would need something more than this. It’s so well built and feels great on sore muscles. My friends and neighbors are addicted to stopping by to use it. Very happy with the purchase.

    small but powerful

    The Theragun mini is a great option for a powerful massage but still portable almost everywhere. I have not personally used a full size or “regular” theragun but based on the pictures, the mini does look decently smaller and a lot more compact. I think this mini option is a good choice for someone who has a theragun already but wants one smaller they can toss in their gym bag etc, or someone who does not own a theragun already but wants to try out a smaller, less expensive version first before spending more for a much higher price tag version. For me, I am the latter. I have heard about the theragun but was not sure if it would be right for me but a mini version seemed like a good way to test it out and I was definitely impressed.

    The Mini does not come with extra attachments, (but they still work if you have them or buy separately) but it does have a standard round edge that seems to work for my basic needs right now. It also comes with a carrying pouch which is soft and really nice to make sure it stays protected if it’s tossing around in your bag or car or wherever, and it comes with a charging cable. Pretty standard stuff there, maybe one other attachment included would have been nice but when they’re trying to offer a budget friendly version, I understand some corners need to be cut. And if you’re simply adding this to your collection of theragun products then you likely have the attachments already. Otherwise, that’s about it as far as what is in the box.

    So how well does it work? I was actually pleasantly surprised how well this Mini version works. I’ve had other massagers and they all seem about the same, never able to get deep enough and don’t help for a very long time. I’ve had the mini for about a week now and have been using it on two problem areas almost every day that I have been having a lot of tension and knots in. One is around my neck and shoulders from looking at phone screens too long and slouching, and the other is around my hips from an uncomfortable bed. Both areas have been feeling much better lately and less tight overall. It’s not like it’s going to be some magical cure, but it does provide temporary relief while I work on getting a better bed and not looking down at my phone so much.

    I also do a fair amount of exercise and workouts during the average week and that’s the other place this little guy shines. Right now with the current spread of coronavirus I’ve been doing workouts at home obviously but once I can get back to the gym I will make sure this is in my bag. I like to use it before a workout to help loosen up any areas that I’ll be focusing on and then again after the workout which seems to help prevent sore muscles the next day as well. If you do a lot of exercise or have any sore areas, this is a great way to relax the muscles and loosen up knots.

    There’s 3 speeds on the mini, I believe the full size versions have more with more features (and higher price tag) but I found the 3 speeds to be a good variety for what I need. The lower speed is better around bone or my neck where you’ll be more sensitive and the higher speeds can really dig into my deep tissue areas that need more power.

    The battery life is really surprising for the small size of the Mini too. Theragun website says it’s 150 minutes of run time which I have not tested with a stopwatch but it definitely lasts a really long time. I’ve been using it a few times a day at all 3 speeds and after almost 7 days it’s just now showing a low battery and I'll need to charge it again. There’s no screen on the mini but it does have a LED light that indicates the battery status. Green/Blue/Red for full, medium and low respectfully. You can also just tap the power button while the device is off to see what the battery level is and while it is operating the LED will light to the appropriate color.

    One thing that comes with a good battery and powerful motor is weight. I have noticed it can be pretty heavy in your hand when you’re trying to work the opposite arm. I found myself massaging my left shoulder/arm while holding it with my right hand and then switching to holding with my left arm to work my right arm because the right was getting sore from holding the theragun, and back and forth it went. But like most massage related products, it works better with two people. If you have someone else who can assist you, you’ll be a lot more relaxed and able to reach your back and shoulders without stressing your opposite arm.

    The noise of the mini is really low as well. Even at high speed it’s not much louder than talking. I was able to use it and watch tv or talk to my wife without having an issue hearing, even when it was right up close to my ear. I mean, it’s not going to be silent, but the idea that they got it to not be annoyingly loud while still running a motor inside is pretty cool.

    Overall, I do feel the theragun mini is a great option for anyone who needs a good, reliable, and portable massager for deep knots and sore muscles. It’s a must for any gym bag.

    PROS:

    - Small, portable design; Take it anywhere!!

    - Soft carrying pouch

    - Very quiet operating levels

    - 3 speeds

    - LONG battery life with LED indicator

    - Short charging time

    - Relatively lightweight

    CONS:

    - A little heavy for holding a long time in some places

    - Matte black finish shows “scuffs” and oils easily

    Theragun

    Best purchase I’ve ever made. I had pain in my elbow and forearm for months. 5 min or using the theragun mini on it , and the pain went away. Now I use it on my sore muscles after working out or just on my sore feet. Worth every penny

    Well-Designed, Portable, Muscle Treatment Relief

    I did not know what to expect when I chose this Theragun Mini by Therabody to review in exchange for the actual product. It turned out to be one of the wisest choices I ever made. I suffer from earlier construction-related injuries to my neck, shoulders, and back. My wife endures severe muscle and joint pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. We both have used prescription creams, rubs, and ointments for relief. All offer short-lived, and welcomed comfort, but are limited in muscle-pain alleviation and are expensive to use.

    We have never considered a 'Massage-Device' similar to the Theragun Mini, because we thought it was probably too painful to endure this kind of pulsating massage technique. Since we are both elderly we now realize “older dogs can learn new tricks”. When I received this Theragun Mini I thought to myself while unboxing this device - it was one ugly, clumsy-looking, massage instrument. Oh', how wrong I was.

    So, what do we think of this Theragun Mini after using it daily for over a week, and why would we recommend it to other folks with muscle pains for an alternative relief to prescription creams, ointments, and pain relievers?

    * EFFECTIVENESS – Simply stated, this rascal works beyond my/our expectations! It is amazing the way its pulsating percussion attachments relieves our muscle pains, and makes for a HAPPY Grandma and Grandpa. The included standard ball is meant for most massage applications and targets percussive therapy treatment while still allowing for broad use on small and large muscle groups. I use this Theragun Mini, with the standard included ball, at its highest setting for my knees. The included 'standard ball' is appropriate for most massage applications, and, the speed intensity of the pulses can easily be changed to customize our comfort-relief preferences. We ordered and received the 'Thumb' and 'Dampener' attachments to enhance our therapeutic, massage benefits (see pics). The 'Thumb' accessory is terrific for more intense muscle massage areas like on my shoulders. And, the larger 'Dampener' attachment is outstanding for use on more sensitive areas like my wife's neck and lower back. WooHoo! The attachment accessories are inexpensive, effective, and expands the massage-effectiveness of this Theragun Mini.

    * OPERATION - There is a simplistic 'Learning-Curve' to its operation, tailored to my/your own personal use. Once I read the included and uncomplicated instructions, I charged the on-board, Lithium-Ion Battery, and was ready to use this baby when the flashing light turned Solid Green (after 30 minutes), and 80 minutes from a deleted charge. It has a multi-functional, LED, power/speed button on the right side of the device. When the Theragun Mini button is depressed it automatically engages the lowest massage speed of 1750 PPM and turns the unit ON. I can keep the ON/OFF button depressed to engage the 2100, or 2400 PPM speeds, accordingly. An LED light on the Right-Hand of the ON/OFF power switch will indicate the appropriate massage speeds, 1750, 2100, or 2400 Pulses Per Minute (PPM). Keeping the button depressed for several seconds will shut the unit down.

    * BUILD – This clunky-looking unit is so ergonomic and lightweight to hold while using, it is pleasantly surprising! It weighs approximately 1.2 pounds. This triangular-shaped massager is covered with a non-slip material, which enables a firm grip in hard-to-reach and more difficult areas of my body. I have arthritis, yet, can maneuver this massager effortlessly without any stress on my wrists or hands. It is cleverly designed to be ergonomic and runs fairly quiet while providing various speeds of pain-relieving rapid percussion. It is not noisy, but the higher your selected, percussion speed the more its operation is noticed. However, it is entirely overshadowed by its welcomed muscle relief. How cool is that?

    BATTERY LIFE – One of the most impressive features of this Theragun Mini is its long battery life. At present my wife and I share this unit and we both use it intermittently the entire day. At 150 minutes of use, on full charge, it has lasted us three days before recharging. We found that it takes approximately an hour and 15 minutes to completely recharge. Be aware this unit has a proprietary charger. Battery level on the mini is indicated with the following colors:

    Flashing red: Low charge

    Flashing blue: Half-way charged

    Flashing green: High charge

    Solid green: Fully charged

    * TRAVEL - I travel a lot as a Consultant for Construction Inspections, which requires me to climb ladders, multi-story roofs, scaffolds, and crawl through confined spaces while trekking through, and, over construction debris. After work in the privacy of my motel room the percussion therapy provided by this Theragun Mini is amazing. It allows me comforting, muscle, pain relief while I am on the road. A handy soft travel pouch is included, which will hold the Mini unit with the standard ball attachment. This Theragun Mini was designed to be portable and actually enables me to do my job much more effectively. YooHoo!

    * ACCESORIES – All of the standard accessories offered by Therabody fit the Theragun Mini. It is worth looking into the various options of attachments if you are serious about percussion, muscle pain relief. I am pleased that I did.

    * CONS – The only one I have is relatively minor – The provided, soft, travel case does not have the additional room to hold the proprietary charger, or any additional attachments. It only holds the basic Theragun Mini and standard ball. I will pack those items separately in my backpack when I go on the road.

    * SUMMARY – I highly recommend this Theragun Mini by Therabody as an inexpensive, but thoroughly effective, portable, percussion, massage device. It is compact, but powerful in delivering soothing, muscle, pain relief. Love It! This makes an excellent gift to any loved one, family member, or friend, who suffers nagging, muscle pain.

    Just what I was looking for

    I’m always on the lookout for pain relieving devices due Osteoarthritis, “and getting old :O “and just wear and tear on the body. My wife also needs some help with a sore back as she is constantly lifting heavy items “for her” are her job. I saw that Theragun had the new Mini model out and wanted to give it a try as it’s more portable and doesn’t cost as much as other units.

    Unboxing and First thoughts:

    The Mini came in a nice Theragun logoed box and inside it was a zippered neoprene case with the Mini inside, “nice they are including a quality case with it”, a charger, guide, warranty information and a Theragun sticker.

    I was really surprised at the weight of the unit and size. It’s not very big but it feels very robust and has a good bit of weight to it “feels like a quality product”. The end attachment is the “regular” sized attachment and is already installed on the device. I went ahead and plugged it in and let it charge up before the first use. Next to the power button there are three small LEDs that indicate the power setting “there are three”, and a quick tap of the power button cycles through these. The power plug has a standard power barrel type tip on it and you’ll have to keep this around to charge it up.

    The outside of the device is coated with a rubbery type surface and that makes it very easy to hold on to. The shape is about perfect to grab onto and hold without slipping. Neither of us have a problem holding onto it.

    Use:

    Now with all the social distancing that’s been going on I haven’t gone to a chiropractor here lately and have notice my neck and back were giving me some issues. While I do have other massage devices, mainly a chair insert “that has worked really well over the years”, it just does Swedish type massage nothing really deep like the devices my chiropractor uses.

    There’s a power button on the side of the device and you press/hold for just a second to turn it on, do the same to turn it off and it starts right in. I was surprised just how much power this had and running it over my neck felt great “just like the device my chiro used”. The low setting is pretty powerful and going up to level 2 and 3 it surprisingly beat the heck out of you “in a good way”. I did find that level 2 was pretty much my preferred setting, 2 being a little too slow, and more hammer type, and three just a little too much vibration in there.

    I ran the device over my neck, shoulders and then had my wife run it over my back, and the first time using this everything was a little sensitive to it so she didn’t do it long. But after waiting an hour I felt great and wanted to do some more so I went at it again. I’ve noticed now that after using it a couple days the sensitivity to it is less and my back and neck pain are so much better “truly amazing, “should have had one of these years ago”.

    My wife wanted me to run over her shoulders as she was pretty sore from lifting heavy items at work and loved it. She said it helped the stiffness right away and couldn’t believe the difference “especially the next morning”. She also had me try it on her feet, from standing all day they were sore. I used it on the soles of her feet and she was overjoyed how well this works for taking out the stiff/sore feeling.

    Conclusion:

    We are both so impressed with the Mini that it will be getting some heavy use for as long as it lasts. I would say that it’s as good as the machine my chiro used and with this one being a portable unit I can use it anywhere I want without being tied to an electrical outlet “only when charging”.

    I did notice though that you can overdo it, and I was pretty sore the next day after going over my neck quite a few times the first day. That’s only taken a day to resolve and I’m back to using it regularly. This has also helped immensely for my sleep and I don’t wake up nearly as stiff as I usually do, “my wife has the same comments”.

    As for noise, this is quiet enough to where you won’t disturb anyone, “could even use it in an office setting”. I do happen to have an Extech professional sound meter and took some readings. The room I was in was at 37.6db for the base “very quiet”. From 18” away I read 47.3db on low, 48.6db on medium and 52.6db on high. Then I moved 6’ away and the meter read 45.1db low, 46.5db on medium and 51.4db on high. The high setting is about the equivalent to a refrigerator running up close so across a room more than 6’ away the sound shouldn’t bother anyone. The sound it generates is more of a low pitch sound too “reminds me of my wife’s sewing machine” and it’s not a high pitched irritating sound at all.

    We both really love this device and hope it give us many years of use. If you have ever been to a chiropractor or physical therapist and have had them use one of those percussion machines on you then you’ll know what this is like. It really helped with our aches and pains and hopefully it will do the same for you too. The company also has different attachments and we will be ordering some of them to try out. Some for larger areas and less impact and others for fingertip / thumb sized high pressure points.

    We never had an issue with running out of power, and it’s close to the manufacturers claim of 150 minutes “we never timed it but it lasted a long time before needing a charge”.

    A necessary tool for computer maintenance

    If you're in a house with a lot of carpet and not much humidity this is pretty much a necessary tool for digging around inside of any electronics. If you're not in a house with carpeting and it feels like you're in a swamp, or a particularly sweaty armpit, you should still get this anyway. Don't accidentally brick your expensive GPU by carrying static electricity on your grubby little fingers - have you SEEN the prices of those things nowadays?

    Fantastic SSD for your PS5 expansion bay

    I installed this SSD into my PS5 along with a cheap heat sync I found online. This is a cheaper way to get your PS5 SSD than buying one with a factory installed heat sync. Save yourself the money and do it yourself.

    Speeds exceed that of the internal SSD in the PS5. I have had zero issue's with the drive after installing over 1.2TB of games onto it. I keep PS5 exclusive games on the internal while everything else goes on this drive.

    Great product and if/when 4TB versions come down in price substantially I will be looking to upgrade.

    Samsung made a fantastic NVMe

    Samsung 980 Pro NVME PCIe 4.0 is one quick SSD. The lighting quick drive move over files quickly at a insane speed. The drive is lighting fast moving over hundreds upon hundreds of gigs of data in a matter of seconds. Large Steam files moved over rapidly from my game library.

    I had easily installed a 2nd NVME slot on Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 which was a breeze. The drive is small but carefully placing it inside was was a snap. I place some games on the drive like Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy XV, Doom Eternal, MK11, GTAV, and Resident Evil: Village. Loading times was improved at an insane rate. Forza Horizon 4 photo was at an Instant at loading the scene. Applications open up at an lighting speed. (Photos will show default real world testing.)

    I love the drive and give ample amount of storage space for my gaming needs. It’s fast and quick, I believe Samsung as usual make fantastic NVME drives so the reliability is good. Of course if you have a Gaming PC, Want to make your laptop faster, or just want more storage. This is clearly a top preforming drive.

    The fastest PCIe 4 SSD in the market

    If you have the hardware capable of supporting PCIe Gen 4, or plan to upgrade to it in the near future, the 980 Pro is one of the best top-performing SSD's available in the market. All that performance doesn't come cheap, but you also get peace of mind from the top-notch quality Samsung is known for.

    Comparing it to the 970 Evo Plus 2TB I currently have on my laptop benchmark numbers are very similar since my laptop PCEi interface is Gen 3x4. So far Samsung has not released an NVMe driver for the 980 Pro. As of right now, my 970 Evo Plus is running on Samsung NVMe driver and the 980 Pro on Microsoft drivers. There is potential for a bump in performance, whenever Samsung does release a driver for the 980 Pro.

    FYI

    If Samsung Magician is having issues recognizing the drive, most likely your system is running on Raid mode and not AHCI mode. Make sure to reach out to the manufacturer of your system for assistance on switching Windows from Raid to AHCI. Do not attempt this process without first consulting the manufacturer since it can end damaging important Windows OS files.

    Overall

    The 980 Pro is one of the best performing SSD’s out there, but if you don’t have the PCIe Gen 4 interface to take advantage of it, performance-wise will be very similar to something like a 970 Evo Plus. If you absolutely want the best for your system the 980 Pro is a good start. Now, if you’re not planning to upgrade your hardware anytime soon to support PCIe Gen 4, you might want to save some money by going with a previous generation like the 970 Evo Plus that is still considered one of the fastest PCIe Gen 3 SSD’s out there.

The whole hardware and software completion 30 minutes up and running. The 980 pro a little faster startup, big improvement over gaming smoothness and latency highly recommend lots of improvement over my 4 year old Samsung 960 to the 980 pro.

    Great NVME for a PCLE 3.0 or 4.0 slot

    I received the 2TB 980 PRO PCLe 4.0 NVMe from Samsung and it’s a beast. I did an upgrade from a 500GB SSD which was still doing me justice but being able to store games on the NVMe and start them, has really cut the load time. The one downside is that my mother board only has a PCLe 3.0 slot, so I am not getting the read/write times that I could get with a PCLe 4.0, but the numbers are still huge. I am averaging 3,300 MB/s read and write times, if I had a PCLe 4.0 it would be getting around 7,000 MB/s on read and write times. Samsung has monitoring program called Magician. Magician monitors drive health, optimize performance, can encrypt the drive, and update your firmware. One of my favorite aspects of the magician software is the heat monitoring that it does. You can run it at full throttle and be able to actively manage the heat buildup. The 980 PRO PCLe 4.0 NVMe will be a great drive for many years to come.

    Fast!

    Maximizing the potential of my motherboard! Booting, loading games, editing photos, converting videos, name it this drive does it very fast. Great investment! Big storage and I'm not even close to half capacity. Will definitely buy again for a PS5, that is if ever I get the chance to buy one at retail price lol!

    Can’t go wrong with Samsung drives.

    Real fast m.2 drive. I wish I could get a 4TB size. I buy this little guy for my Ps5. I been buying Samsung drives for all my pc builds and laptops. I believe I have a issue before and Samsung send me a replacement.

    Overall I happy and planning by more of this drive when processor and motherboard gets a better decent price.

    I've been needing a desktop for a while now, but with so many options out there its hard to find one that suits my needs. The Best Buy employees went above and beyond with guiding and directing me to get something that makes sense for my needs. The CyberPower desktop that I bought has plenty of power to play the latest games and run CAD programs for my college projects. Overall the buying experience was amazing.

    Amazing PC by Cyberpower as always!!

    This PC is amazing, got it yesterday and it has lightning fast performance, Booted up Apex Legends and got insane performance, V-sync on and I stayed locked at 144Fps with medium-high settings, never dropped a frame, Do be wary that this PC only comes installed with 8Gb of ram, I'd suggest another 16Gb upgrade of Corsair Vengeance RGB SL to get this performance, Other than that, Great PC, Cyberpower always Delivers!!!

    Great PC at a great price.

    This build is focused mainly on 1080P gaming, and it works splendidly for that. It performs pretty well with VR as well. Ive been able to play Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 VR with good quality. Some modern games have no problem with 60fps 1440p, and older games can typically even do 4k.

    Windows 11 doesnt play well in my experience. I downgraded to Windows 10 and saw a massive performance increase. So i suggest you do that. I also had 16gb of ram in my last pc that I moved over. So not sure how it performs with just the single channel 8gb.

    The case is spacious and really lets the PC breathe. Easy to work around in and add new components. I have installed an HDD, a Sata SSD, and changed out the ram very easily. Good organized wire managment too. You can change the colors or patterns of the RGB with a few buttons on the case itself.

    All in all this is a great PC and the price is fantastic. Definitely pleased, and totally recommend at this price.

    Great

    Great product. Runs very quiet. Quality Fans don't make noise. comes with gigabyte b550 ud ac mini atx motherboard and crucial ballistic ram. Asrock dual fan amd gpu.(at least my version) Has 2 antennas one for wifi and the other for Bluetooth, make sure you install those first they bend 180 degrees, screw them in then twist to 90 degrees. The led lights can be controlled from the unit itself with 2 small buttons, if you hold the m button down all the lights shutoff, no software needed. Seems like plenty of room to upgrade GPU later.

    Overall with the shortage this is a great unit with a sleek looking case.

Played Half Life alyx beat saber and some ve chat flawlessly. I did run into issues where I couldn’t move my fingers in VRchat for pcvr but I’m working on fixing that.

    VR headset for the mainstream

    Absolutely awesome mind blowing experience! The Quest 2 is definitely brings VR to the mainstream in terms of hardware and software. It is easy to setup and a pleasure to use. The guardian safety software feature is genius. You can optionally use the headset for pcvr and have a game library separate from the Oculus store if that is what you prefer.

    Hardware wise, the headset and controllers feel high quality. It does not have that cheap plastic feel. The controllers are ergonomic but are good for small to medium sized hands. The thumbsticks are a tad small for me and can be a bit larger. The headset is front heavy and can be tricky to adjust the strap to be comfortable. The display looks great and has no screen door effect. The included glasses spacer works as stated if you meet the requirements and you are careful when putting the headset on/off. The Quest 2 now comes with a silicone cover which is good for hygiene and easy to clean.

    While the Quest 2 is good headset overall but there are some caveats to keep in mind. The head strap is not the best and it is almost necessary to get a 3rd party strap. The field of view is narrow but not a deal breaker. Only having 3 IPD settings is not great, a slider would have been ideal. People with small noses will have a "nose gap" that allows light to leak inside the headset which can break immersion, a 3rd party face cover with a nose flap can help with that. Perhaps the biggest gripe is the Facebook account requirement. While I understand that there are those who want to use their headset as they see fit, you won't get that when Facebook is involved.

    My final thoughts is that I'm thoroughly impressed with what Oculus brought to the table. The relaunch of the Quest 2 feels like a great deal when they increased the storage to 128gb. I can already see myself putting a ton of use into the Quest 2.

    Clear Picture and Works well

    This is my second C920S that I have bought in the last 6 months. The first one I needed for my desktop to conduct meetings, Skype with family, and more. The camera has worked flawlessly in that regard. I'm using it on a Win10 system. This second one that I bought I needed for my living room to Skype through my Xbox.

    The camera features a [email protected] fps sensor, privacy shutter, dual microphones for stereo audio, and a built in stand. The stand also features a 1/4-20 threaded insert to mount to a tripod or any other camera mounting platform.

    The privacy shutter is nothing more that a flap the closes down over the lens, so it provides a modicum of privacy. For those people that are more sensitive to privacy needs the most effective way to shut out would-be snoopers is to unplug the camera after use. The great thing about this camera is it is quickly recognized and setup by Win10, so unplugging/plugging back in doesn't cause a large disruption.

    Cable length sits right at 5ft and connects via USB A. It also has a velcro strap tethered to the cable to make it easier to bundle up.

    The camera FOV is 78°. This narrower FOV limits the viewing area, which allows you to retain some privacy while on a video call or stream. The last thing I would want is a wide angle view of my basement while on a video conference with coworkers and outside vendors.

    Video quality is excellent and the clarity is right where it needs to be. In lower light conditions the camera automatically adjusts its ISO setting to keep the image bright. I have found that I can still be easily seen while in a darkened room, and only the light from my screen is illuminating me.

    The dual stereo mic does a good job of picking up audio even from a distance. This is really useful to me when I am Skyping through my Xbox. The camera is on top of my TV and I am sitting about 12-15ft away. I don't have to shout, but rather talk in a fairly normal tone and the other party can hear me just fine.

    Overall I was really happy with the first camera I bought. It worked great and delivered on its specs and performance. I liked it enough that I bought a second to use as the camera on my Xbox. It has a solid price/performance argument going for it.

  • Review by Trobadour, 10 out of 10
    Great Streamer Cam

    ---SETUP---

    The setup of this WebCam is fast. Out of the box, it was plug and play ready on my MAC.

    ---FEATURES---

    The key features of this webcam include autofocus, auto-white balance, a microphone, and a removable privacy cover. 1080P 30FPS or 720P 30 FPS, 78o wide angle lens.

    ---PERFORMANCE---

    The performance of the WebCam is great out of the box. I used it with Facetime for an online interview for a new job and the interviewer made a comment on how clear my image was compared to those he had interviewed that day. The microphone works well also if you are using it close to you. For gaming, though, I rerouted the output to a different mic but it makes for a great starter WebCam.

    ---EXPECTATIONS---

    The product meets my expectations. You don’t need a tripod to use this, as it has a hinge that can adjust to any laptop or monitor. I had a small tripod laying around and I used the tripod screw hole to place it closer to me and record me at a preferable angle and out of the way of my TV’s line of view. It worked flawlessly with OBS and I was able to set up a filter for chroma key without having to turn on my studio lights, meaning that the regular room lighting was enough to capture a bright enough image needed for a green screen.

    ---VALUE---

    The price for the Webcam in terms of value is great. For basic things like Facetime, Google Hangouts, or Skype, you will love it. As a gaming facecam, you will find its ease of use and integration with OBS welcoming.

    ---APPROVAL---

    I highly recommend this product for people who make video calls or video-conferencing as it will definitely look better than anything that already comes with your laptop or monitor. Xbox players can plug it in directly to the Xbox for streaming from the Xbox with a facecam. PC streamers can customize it even further with OBS or XSPLIT. You will love the HD capture of your camera and the price.

    I can't get over the quality of this webcam! I have been using my laptop camera for as long as I can remember. I've now been working from home for several years and finally invested in a webcam.

    Great 1080p entry level camera

    Since I work from home more now, I needed a higher quality camera than my laptop one. This is still 30 fps, but the quality was greatly improved. Haven't tested the onboard mics because I use a headset. The privacy cover helps for peace of mind if I accidentally turn on the camera or join a meeting where the camera is on by default.

    Better than using a Tablet

    I purchased this web cam to ensure better video chats using our computer. We had been using a tablet and found that access was not very good and video quality was fair. Setting up on the desktop computer Monitor was quick. From a 8" Tablet to a 24" Monitor was quite a difference. The first time using was amazing at the difference. No more fumbling with the Tablet to get our Video to work and easier to see who we wore talking to.

    Great picture but too much looming/bleeding

    I bought this TV on September 19, 2021 and the picture was the most crystal clear picture I've ever seen. I LOVED it. Movies, TV shows, and video games looked fantastic. The interactive menu was a bit sluggish as but still worked fairly well. Then all of a sudden, we had a blooming/bleeding/clouding issue that remains on the screen no matter what was showing. This showed up in the upper left corner of the screen. It remained to the point that we wanted a replacement, so we replaced on September 29, 2021.

    This TV set had the exact same issue, which makes me believe it's an issue with the way this Samsung TV model is made. Blooming or clouding in the with the same placement but taking over a larger portion of the screen on the right side instead of the left (pics attached). I loved the TV so much and it was the most clear picture I could imagine. Refresh rate was top notch. It was like a window instead of a TV screen. However, the constant blooming was too much to bear and was terrible while watching dark scenes at night.

    I used a receiver for surround sound so I did not use the speakers on the TV.

    I played around with the picture settings many times and checked out the firmware update. There was nothing that could have fixed the issue.

    I've had $300 tvs for years that have had no issues but two straight flagship Samsung's costing over $1,000 gave me the issue.

    It was disappointing and unacceptable. I replaced with a Sony which has its own myriad of issues. The quality of TVs in this day don't seem to match the quality of yesteryear.

    MUST HAVE/INSANELY FAST

    MUST HAVE. Unfortunately it is a small chunk of change but with today’s file sizes and everything you honestly kind of need it. I’m loving it though. Really small, nice form factor, etc. Has roughly 920ish gbs of usable storage. Since it is a proprietary form of storage though I can still use the quick resume feature on all my games I have downloaded to the card and everything still loads insanely fast!

    A must need for Xbox Series X/S!

    I highly recommend the Seagate expansion card for the Xbox Series X/S. 4K optimized games mean more detailed textures and graphics, which, in turn, means games will increase the amount of space they take up! 1TB might seem like a lot on these new consoles, but with 4K optimization patches, the GBs will start to add up quickly. I bought the 1TB expansion card as soon as it was announced because of this. Pre-ordered both and got them on launch day (11/10/2020).

    “Pricey but pays off”

    A must have no matter the price. This is really the only storage place that has the same speed as the internal hard drive on the Xbox Series X/S. If you would like to play next gen games, you need this. Without this, you won’t be able to play next gen games unless you install them on the internal drive which fills up fast with how much space you are ACTUALLY given on the Xbox Series X/S and how much space the new games take up. Pricey but pays off!

    Little card, big power.

    Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Definitely yes. It's quick, works seamlessly with my xbox and it loads games with ease. I only wish I came in a 2 TB option.

    If you need fast storage, this is the way to go!

    If you external storage that has the same speed as the internal storage, this is what you want to get. Also, if you want great features like quick load times and quick resume.. you are going to want to get this.

    Small, portable and designed for the Series X/S, this is a great accessory for your new console.

    It adds that extra clout for when your buddies come over and see it sticking out the back of your new Xbox. As always it doesn't add a full 1TB. Works well.

    Just buy it.

    Is expesive but is the best way to expand your storage on xbox series x. Yes you can find cheaper alternatives but will you be able to run last gen games drirectly from them? Is expansive but thats what this technology cost this days anyway super fast storage better than PC instant response. Playstation don't give storags options as of right now be thankful to have this option.

    Superb Sound/Ultra Noise-Canceling/Premium Quality

    The new Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless headphones are a clear improvement over Sony’s already excellent line of Bluetooth headphones. They are very comfortable and provide superb listening experience at home, traveling or in a noisy office. They incorporate extremely effective noise suppression, have easy-to-operate controls and a very long battery life. Their unmatched quality is evident in every feature.

    Sony is one of the largest consumer electronic companies in the world. It began in 1946 as an electronics shop but soon began producing its own products, starting with tape recorders and transistor radios in the mid-1950s. Sony built a reputation for quality and introduced many innovations in portable audio, including the Walkman in 1979, the CD disc in 1983, flash memory for audio and video in 1998 and the Blu-ray HD disc in 2000. Its consumer audio products including stereo component systems, speakers and headphones are very well-regarded for quality and features.

    Here are the key features:

    • Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling over-the-ear Bluetooth headphones

    • Ergonomic, fully adjustable over-ear, closed dynamic headphone

    • 40 mm dome driver for maximum bass and very accurate wide frequency response

    • Advanced noise-canceling/suppression technology uses two microphones on each earphone to analyze and block external noises, may be switched on or off and may be optimized for wearing conditions and atmospheric pressure

    • Artificial Intelligence and Digital Sound Enhancement Engine technology to accurately upscale compressed music, especially high-pitched sounds normally lost

    • Monitor function allows ambient sound to be easily heard while wearing headphones, may be switched on or off; Speak-to-Chat provides automatic pause and resume without removing earphone

    • Voice Assist function compatible with Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant

    • Bluetooth 5.0, reception range up to 30 feet, NFC pairing connection option, supports SBC, AAC and LDAC codecs; simultaneous connection to two devices

    • Sony Headphones Connect app provides extensive sound customization and 3D Reality Audio

    • HD Voice and built-in microphone for making and receiving phone calls with high quality sound

    • Touch control on side of right earphone to raise/lower volume, next/previous track selection

    • Power, Bluetooth pairing, Monitor and Noise Cancel buttons on left earphone

    • Rechargeable 3.7v internal lithium ion power source: 10 minute quick charge gives 5 hours of play time, 3 hours to fully charge with included 8” USB-C connection cable (recharge at 5.0v)

    • Headphones will operate 30+ hours (38+ hours with noise reduction off) continuously from a full charge, 9 day standby time, customizable auto-off timer

    • Can also operate without using any power by connecting an included 4.1 foot 3.5 mm stereo cable to left earphone

    • 3.5 mm (headphone) male-to-male 50” connection cable included

    • Airplane in-flight audio connector included

    • 4 – 40,000 Hz audio frequency range, less than 1% THD distortion

    • Sony Headphone Connect app provides graphic equalizer and presets

    • Easy to follow illustrated quick set-up guide

    • Foldable design for compact storage

    • Size: 5.5 inches by 6.6 inches by 3.5 inches

    • Weight: 9 ounces

    • Hard case with outside and inside pockets for accessories included

    • One year warranty on parts and labor

    Included in the slip-cover box are full instructions/set-up guide and a very nice, compact hard case which contains the headphones, a short USB-C charging cable, a 50 inch long 3.5 mm direct-connect wire cable and airplane audio adapter. The quick set-up guide is comprehensive with step-by-step instructions for using the headphones, a trouble-shooting checklist, technical specifications and detailed explanations for using each feature.

    The headphones have a non-reflective black finish and very attractive copper-colored lettering and highlights, substantial bass-producing drivers and super-soft memory-foam cushions on each headphone for superb comfort and noise isolation. They fold flat to enable compact storage and to easily fit into a purse, drawers, etc. The Sony WH-1000XM4 has a look of quiet quality and business elegance without flashy excess.

    The headphones use USB-C technology and are quick-charging. In just 10 minutes you have 5 hours of play time. Full charge is accomplished in three hours. The stated music playing time of thirty hours seems conservative since I found the headphones would operate for nearly forty-five hours before fading out. The customizable auto-off feature aids this very long battery life.

    An audio prompt indicates when the power is on or off and a second press of the power button gives a voice guidance of the remaining power level. Pair the earphones with your phone or other source via Bluetooth or NFC. The connection remained very solid throughout my home, up to nearly 50 feet.

    The headphones are fully adjustable and the very soft pads completely and comfortably enclose even the largest ears. The Sony WH-1000XM4 are perhaps the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. They are light (9 ounces) and have plenty of adjustment range to enable a perfect fit. You can wear them for many hours in perfect comfort and your ears will never complain.

    Even without the noise-canceling function most external sounds are blocked. Pressing the Custom (automatic noise canceling) button turns on that feature and sets the level of noise reduction and there is an audio announcement that it is active (or that it has been turned off.) The ANC technology is very sophisticated, utilizing two microphones on each earphone to analyze external sounds and cancel it. You can even customize the noise cancellation for wearing conditions and atmospheric pressure. My favorite test is to turn on both my shower and bathroom sink faucet and the noise (which would normally be very loud) was just a faint hiss which I could easily ignore while listening to the music. Even without music playing the noise canceling feature was extremely effective. You can also adjust the degree of noise cancellation using the Headphone Connect app. A perfect companion for isolating you with just your music in public transit and airplanes!

    But you buy headphones primarily to provide sound, not to eliminate it. Here you will find your investment well-rewarded! The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones utilize Sony’s DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) and Artificial Intelligence technology to accurately expand digital music, especially higher-frequencies which are often chopped out in the compression process. Bass and mid-range sounds are very well reproduced. You can modify the sound contour/response by utilizing the Sony Headphones Connect app which features a full equalizer, a number of surround sound presets and sound positioning controls. For those who like heavy bass these are an ideal choice. If you want to cut back the bass the equalizer on the app will do that very effectively. I played every range of music, from classical, blues, hard rock, jazz and a full range of vocals (opera through folk ballads) and these fine headphones never disappointed me. The sound quality is just beautiful.

    I compared the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones to another set from Sony which are priced about 25% lower and a super-premium set from another audio supplier priced about 25% higher. Compared to the lower-priced Sony headphones the WH-1000XM4 provided more features and better sound which more than justified the price differential. Compared to the higher-priced set I found that the Sony WH-1000XM4 provided noticeably better noise reduction and equal music reproduction. I think that to find a significantly better set of headphones you would have to spend at least 50% more, and even then most users would not really appreciate any difference in sound or features.

    Like all good earphones these will respond to various voice commands, allow you to interact with Siri, take calls, etc. Each earphone has some controls. The right side has a nice touch pad which will raise/lower volume, skip tracks (forward and backward), pause and repeat tracks and has a microphone for use during calls. The left side turns the earphones on/off, handles Bluetooth pairing, activates the noise cancelation feature and also takes calls. One nice feature is Quick Attention which shuts off noise cancellation and lowers music volume when you touch the right headphone, enabling you to easily hear outside sounds (such as transit announcements), and then resumes noise cancellation and music volume when you remove your hand. But an even more clever feature is Speak-to-Chat which shuts off noise reduction and music when you speak, then resumes music and noise reduction when you stop speaking. Don’t worry if you like to sing along to your music – you can disable this feature! Finally, if you rely on Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant you will appreciate the easy integration with those services provided by these headphones.

    In summary, the Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones are an excellent value and packed with premium features for discerning music fans who demand superb noise isolation, a very comfortable headset and above-all, beautiful and accurate sound reproduction. They are an ideal choice for traveling and would pass boring hours in airports and on planes with gold stars for quality, sound level and range. I am happy to award Sony’s new WH-1000XM4 a full five stars and a hearty, unqualified endorsement. Invest in these and you will receive the twin dividends of heavenly music and unmatched isolation from all of the unwanted, annoying noises assaulting you every day!

    Outstanding Audio and Noise Cancelling

    The Sony WH-1000XM4’s (XM4’s from now on) are a pair of much awaited and longed for headphones and I am here to report that Sony has impressed me yet again. Let’s start with inside the box where we have a hard carrying case, the headphones, a usb type C cable, an airplane adapter, a 3.5mm cable along with the usual paperwork.

    The Headphone is designed like any other typical headphone but I must point out that both the earcup cushions and the headband cushion are extremely comfortable and this lead to me being able to use the XM4’s for hours without much complaint. The clamping pressure from the headphone is virtually unnoticeable and this is significant because I have a big head so the headphone probably stretches more for me than it does for the average person. The right headphone has the touch capacitive controls as well as the usb charging port and the NFC mechanism for pairing, while the left headphone has the power button and the custom button (which you are allowed to change to trigger voice assistant or toggle ambient control the audio-jack port. Also a first for me on a headphone, Sony has followed their true wireless earphones and placed a proximity sensor in the left earcup that senses when yo-u have the headphone on and pauses/resumes your media based on removing or putting the headphones on. I must also point out that the hardcase is well designed with a net storage on the outside of the case. Also inside the case all the cables have a suitable storage spot and there are paper cut outs that instruct you how to carefully position the headphones to be placed in the case.

    So, how do they sound?? Fantastic! All music comes through sounding great without even having to change and tweak the equalizer settings through the Headphone app. The music comes through full and clear and for those concerned about bass, you have comfortable thumps and punches that are not overwhelming and can be modified in the app. The same goes for Noise cancelling level which can also be controlled through the app. The XM4’s Sony created has the best noise cancelling headphone I have ever used. At full strength it is able to suppress so much background noise it can actually surprise you. If people are in a room with you and having a conversation( not too far from you), you won’t be able to hear anything they are saying even with the music off. The effect is most obvious in noisy areas like a street or around heavy machinery where the feature shines.

    What else do I like? Sony has finally created a XM headphone that has multipoint pairing. This means that XM4’s can simultaneously pair to two bluetooth devices. The way I utilize this is to pair the XM4’s to both my laptop and my cellphone so that if I am listening to audio on my laptop and a call comes in, the headphone switches the audio automatically to my cell phone and allows me to answer the call. What’s also amazing is that once the call ends it automatically switches back to my laptop audio.

    On the topic of a phone call, I can say that phone conversations I’ve had went very well. The persons on the other end of the line could hear me clearly and loudly while we conversed, even when I was in a noisy background. It seems the combination of the five mics as well as Sony’s software works superbly well to suppress background noise while highlighting my voice. Another stand out feature I absolutely appreciate is Speak to Chat feature. Basically what this does is that while you have the headphones all, if you would like to speak to someone , you can just speak and the headphones pick up that you are talking, lowers your volume and allows the ambient noise to flood the headphones. This is great if you don't want to keep taking off and putting on your headphones every time to talk to someone. Note that this feature can be turned on and off in the app and you can also change the length of the timeout with the smallest being 15 seconds.

    Finally, battery life. Sony reports 30 hours of use with noise cancelling on so I guess you can squeeze a few more hours out of it with noise cancelling off. I’ve been using it continuously between my laptop and phone for the last few days and I have yet to charge it. From the app the battery level says 40% remaining and I can attest to using it for about 15 to 20 hours so I have no doubt about Sony’s claim.

    The XM4’s are a definite two thumbs up for me. Superior sound and noise cancelling, feature rich app and more than a literal day of battery and multi-device pairing, it doesn’t get much better than this.

    Awesome sound and noise cancellation

    ## Design

    The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are somewhat large, but the ear-cups are well padded and are very comfortable to wear for hours on end. The headband portion also has plenty of padding so that the headphones rest comfortably on the top of your head.

    The ear-cups do a good job of creating a loose seal around your ears, so much so that I definitely get the "ear sweats" which is common with many over-the-ear headphones.

    The headphones come a hard travel case with a soft fabric exterior. Storing the headphones requires completely retracting the headband (I would prefer if you could leave it at the size that fits my head). A helpful diagram is included inside the case that shows you how to fold the headphones so they fit properly.

    ## Performance

    The sound quality on the Sony WH-1000XM4 is incredible and is definitely up there with the Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones. Highs and mids come through crystal clear and the bass is plentiful. The Sony WH-1000XM4 also has something called "Edge-AI" where it tries to enhance compressed music (such as a low quality Pandora stream). It's hard to gauge it's effectiveness as I couldn't find a way to turn the feature on and off, but it is likely another contributing factor to the awesome sound quality.

    Call quality also appears to work very well on the WH-1000XM4. The microphones seem to pick up my voice well while filtering out some of the background sounds around me (but it still picks up some things like typing on a keyboard).

    The noise cancellation feature is also top-notch. It not only filters out general "hums" such as an air conditioner running, but it also does a good job of filtering out people talking and even other music sources near you. It does have it limits: it won't completely filter out a blaring stereo next to you or completely eliminate the sound of your riding mower. However, it does a good enough job that you can listen to your music or podcast at a comfortable listening level without needing to crank up the volume to overcome the outside world.

    The level of noise cancellation can also be adjust in the Sony Headphones app and there are a lot of cool features associated with it that I'll detail in the next section.

    ## Features

    - Speak-to-Chat: This is probably my favorite feature of these headphones. It seems like whenever I'm at work, I no sooner put on my headphones than someone walks up with a question. With the WH-1000XM4, as soon as I start talking, the headphones react, turning off the noise cancellation feature, lowering the volume of my music, and relaying the voice of the person talking to me. After 30 seconds (this is adjustable in the app) when I finished speaking, the noise cancellation turns backs on and the volume of music is brought back up. You can also double-tap the right ear-cup when you're finished speaking to resume your music.

    - Quick listen: If you need to catch an announcement, for example, you can cup your hand over the right ear-cup's touch sensor to turn off the noise cancellation feature temporarily.

    - Adaptive Sound Control: Another cool feature that lowers the Active Noise Cancellation feature whenever the headphones detect that you've started walking. This lets in some of the outside sounds by lowering the level of noise cancellation so you're more aware of what is happening around you. If you frequently move, it can get a bit annoying as the headphones will play a short tone whenever the mode changes.

    - Touch controls: The touch controls on the right ear-cup are intuitive: swiping your finger up and down on the ear-cup adjusts the volume and swiping left and right changes the track. Double-tapping the center pauses and plays your music.

    - Wearing detection: A sensor in the left ear-cup can detect when you remove the headphones, automatically pausing your music. Music resumes when you put the headphones back on.

    - Dual pairing: With many of us working from home, this feature is great as it allows you to pair the headphones with your phone and your computer at the same time. Therefore, I can listen to music from my phone, but automatically switch over to my computer to listen to a webinar. It looks like there are a few kinks to work out with this feature as I found that it did not always switch automatically, or would sometimes take awhile to change from one source to the next.

    - Background firmware updates: I had a pair of truly wireless Sony headphones that required me to babysit them for a good 30-40 minutes while the firmware update file transferred and then installed, however they were unusable while that happened. A launch-day firmware update was available for the WH-1000XM4 and it seemed to transfer from my phone to the headphones in the background while I was listening to music. I received a notification when it was ready to install, and after a quick reboot, the headphones were updated. This was a much better experience!

    ## Battery Life

    The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones can last up to 30 hours when using Bluetooth with the noise cancellation feature enabled. The headphones are recharged with a USB-C cable (yay, no Micro USB!) and if you're in a hurry, a 10 minute charge can net you up to 5 hours of listening time.

    ## Summary

    Overall, the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are a solid alternative to the Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones and offer some some great features (such as speak-to-chat) not found on the QuietComfort headphones. Long battery life, wearing detection and dual Bluetooth connections round out an impressive feature set on a pair of headphones with awesome noise cancellation and sound quality.

    I love them

    I absolutely LOVE these. Ive owned the for 5 months now. The noise cancelling is about a 4.5 out of 5. If you have music or something playing that 4.5 is taken to a 5 cause you can't hear anything outside then unless you switch it to ambiet noise. If you have noisy roommates, etc., you will love these. Sound quality is around a 4.7 for me. Best headphones ive ever owned. You have to download a free app for your phone to use them. There, you can change the tone of the sound in several different ways. These are the best. If your looking for peace around you, pick them up. They charge quickly. Padding is A+++ and extremely comfortable to wear for hours. Be patient if your having issues setting them up. Included is a charging cable and very nice hardshell carrying case.

    10/10 Would Recommend

    [I want to preface this by saying I'm not a Sony "fan" I'm not giving a good review because of the brand, this is my genuine opinion] Been using em for a couple months now and the build quality is great, very sturdy, and the audio is high quality. If you love bass, you're all good with these headphones, if the default sound is not to your liking, you can easily change it with the Sony app. the only thing I will say is, these headphones pick up fingerprints kinda easily, so if you're nitpick about that maybe consider getting a lighter color.

    Content never sound so sweet

    I have been salivating at a chance to purchase these headphones, since the reviews on YouTube by MKBHD. Folks I can tell you, it is a phenomenal piece of technology for it being a headphone. The crew at Sony that engineered this baby made it so intuitive. The audio through the headphones to telecom the battery levels once you tap the power. Cables you don have use headphones issued on the plane. I am extremely happy with my purchase. Usually, I’d wait a year after manufacture warranty to expire to get a thorough understanding of the product, but I couldn’t contend myself. Parents are really going to appreciate the noises canceling feature but plea use it responsibly. LOL!

    Excellent Sound & Features

    I ordered these on a pre-black friday sale weeks before the main sales were announced on best buy. I had extensively researched the headphones (and previous generation XM3) for about 10 months prior to pulling the trigger, comparing them to literally everything else in its tranche and also more expensive models. This included audio-technica, bose, sennheiser, bowers & wilson, and bang & olufsen to name a few. I recommend these headphones over the others for several reasons:

    1. Sound quality. The sound out of the box was not to my liking, but the beauty of the Sony app is that you can craft the EQ how you want. I was able to find a custom setting that enhances nearly all of the music I listen to. I'm very happy with the high quality sound across the board. Do not buy a NC headphone without the ability to tweak the EQ. Sound quality is a relative matter and you may be unhappy with the out-of-the-box sound if you opt for a cheaper model.

    2. Noise canceling. Top-notch with a ton of features allowing for levels of ambient sound to your liking. Adaptive sound control is a huge plus

    3. Functionality. Ability to connect to 2 devices simultaneously. Of course more would be great but at least 2 is crucial (which is why I would buy XM4 over XM3). I usually connect to my ipad and iphone and can seamlessly move between both.

    4. Comfort. I previously owned a pair of Sennheisers which were very uncomfortable. I would give these XM4's 9/10 in terms of comfort. I will admit that it took me a few weeks to get used to the pressure but in finding the sweet spot (about 5 clicks up on the head band) I am now able to wear them for hours without needing to take them off.

    5. Call quality. I've tested these with multiple family members and friends. They have all given these at least 9/10 in terms of call quality in moderate background sound environments. Will the call quality be the best on the market? Probably not, but personally I didn't buy these for calls. Rest assured, you'll be fine.

    6. Style. I like the minimal design. They are matte black with a sleek non-offensive look which I actually like more than the Bose. I would say opt for the black over silver (almost a pewter grey) because over time they will show scratches and smudges less.

    Conclusion. If you're on the fence, take a look a the many reviews on youtube especially the ones comparing models. I highly recommend you buy these over the probably cheaper XM3's (depending on when you view this). The added features are worth spending more, but good news is that these seem to routinely go on sale. Worth every penny for WFH, music lovers, and even calls. Enjoy :)

    No Regrets!!! Excellent!!!

    At first I'm so hesitant to buy this headphone for about 2 weeks choosing between a headphone and airpods. I've been wearing airpods since its first launch having the 1st gen and 2nd gen so moving to a headphone is a tough decision. Putting it on my cart then removing it, then back again. I have seen multiple reviews on both the pros and cons before convincing myself to finally buy it. I'm so happy with my new headphone and the color that matches my iphone 12 pro max and specially having it connected to two (2) devices at the same time!!! My Iphone and Macbook is connected at the same time! This is Awesome!!! I will definitely recommend to a friend!

    The option to customize the RGB is a welcome one

    Yes, I paid an extra $20 so I could have the option to turn off the LED while streaming, ha ha. I had the original QuadCast with bright red LEDs. The sound quality was top-notch. However, no matter where I put it on my desk near my voice while I was gaming, it was so hard not to get distracted by the bright red LED. So I returned the original QuadCast to get the QuadCast S. I think it's worth the additional $20 if LED color matching or simply turning off the LED when it's live is something worth a lot to you.

    With the QuadCast S, you get the same mic only that the rear connection is USB-C (thank goodness) and through the beta software, you can turn OFF the LED when the mic is live and leave the LED on when it is muted. So I have mine set to have a red LED on when muted, and off altogether when live. Such a welcome option. Especially if you just want a nice mic without the lights yelling out "LOOK! LOOK! THIS IS A GAMER MIC!" - lol.

    Overall, this mic is one of the best USB mics I've used so far (it surpasses my old Blue Yeti USB which is surprising, plus that thing is a HUGE mic and is quite the eyesore to look at).

    Note: Probably best to get an additional pop filter. Even though this mic is advertised to have a "built-in pop filter", it's not that great to be honest. Throw in another pop filter to adequately remedy any annoying 'plosives'. Also, get a boom arm for this mic :-)

    Fantastic Mic worth every penny!

    Fantastic mic with no complaints. I have this mic set up at my desk for recording voice overs and some game chat.

    Solid mic with crystal clear quality, comes with a built in shock mount, stand, fully customizable RGB and an internal Pop Filter.

    Has 4 different sound profiles which allow you to record directly in front of the mic, front and back, left and right, or a 360° area around the mic. (Compatible with PC and Playstation but not XBOX and Switch unfortunately...)

    This mic also attaches to most boom arms and uses a custom USB Type-C Cord to power it. The mic also sports a simple Touch-to-Mute button at the top of the mic. When the Light goes off, the mic is muted. When the light is on, its recieving audio.

    (I added an extra Pop Filter to the mic due to the built in one not being enough for my liking.)

    Must have for any switch owner!

    Having the Wii version in my collection, I am happy to say this is a worthwhile HD remaster. Being able to skip some of the handholding and not use motion controls is how the game should have been released originally. The graphics and load times are a huge improvement.

    Classic wii Zelda brought to the Switch

    A great classic brought to the switch. The game is very fun from the old wii era of Nintendo. The controller settings take getting used to if you are more familiar with breath of the wild controls as this game was meant for the wii motion plus. Luckily if you don’t like the motion controls you can swap to the normal button controls. The graphics are nice and have been up scaled for the switch resolutions. This game will bring you many hours of fun.

    Skyward Sword is Amazing

    This is a fantastic port from the Wii to Switch. I enjoyed Skyward Sword with the motion plus controller for the Wii and beat it several times. Playing it now on the Switch with my son has been the best. The game still has an interesting pastel pallet for it's landscapes but the models and everything else are much sharper and detailed now. This is a great game if you like The Legend of Zelda Series. If you haven't played it, canonically it's the first and it's amazing what you get to experience and see how it all began. If your only Zelda game has been Breath of the Wild, which is also an amazing entry in the series, this game is more grounded in what the other 3D Zelda games have been. By this I mean having actual dungeons and a more linear progression vs open world exploration. Bot h are good in their own ways, but if you're looking for a more traditional 3D Zelda experience with a great story and great gameplay, this is it.

    Nvidia Streaming Supremacy?

    I have been looking at the Nvidia Shield for a looooong time and finally decided to buy it as a birthday present for myself. I have several streaming devices in my house from Roku, Google, AirTV, and Xfinity. The main things that attracted me to the Shield are Dolby Atmos support in Netflix, built in Chromecast, and the AI upscaling. All of my favorite apps work - Pandora, Hoopla, Peacock, YouTube TV, and Disney +. I am still figuring out the various features but am not sold on the upscaling as it seems to over sharpen most of the source material. Time will tell if my opinion grows stronger but I like most of what I've seen from this device.

    Worth it!

    If you have fast internet a 4k tv and a decent sound bar you want this.

    The upscaling alone makes this worth it.

    I was using ps4 for streaming and everything else.

    I still love my ps4 but shield tv is much more versatile in terms of content and connectivity. I still haven't really scratch the surface.

    I do have a few cons though, mainly having to do with customization which is something android is known for so hopefully we will see more options down the road.

    Bought for Gamestream

    Not gonna lie, I bought this mainly for gamestream, then as streaming device second. Gamestream is a headache to setup but once you have 1) really good gaming rig, 2) fix whatever bugs there are, this is capable of gamestreaming 4k60 even with a very fast 5ghz wifi (I have Ac3150 beamforming router with AC1900 beamforming capable card on the rig). So far I've played Rocket League, a few Assassin's Creed games, and tried Battlefield V Campaign for the lol. Stutters only come if someone walks through the hallway between the router and the office where the Desktop is situated. Aside from that, the 4k60 stream is excellent and the wireless xbox360 gamepad input lag is bearable to singleplayer games. Don't bother trying on games that require no input lag at all.

    The AI Upscale is a pleasant surprise and Netflix standard streaming looks like a legit 4k stream. Compared to when I stream directly from my Smart TV. On the other hand, my 4k HDR streams from Disney Channel is working flawlessly with my HDR capable TV.

    On another note, my Dolby digital sound is going through the the shield, then to TV then to TV's HDMI ARC connected to a samsung Dolby 5.1 Soundbar + wireless soundwoofer & rear speakers. So I can attest that Dolby passthrough works. Not sure about Dolby atmos though.

    It is also good for running android games or if you subscribe, Nvidia's GeForce Now. Also, the price is pretty high up there so the only worth it specs from this device is the gamestream and the AI upscale. If you can't justify that cost, you should try looking at other cheaper streaming device then.

    Side note, turn on HDMI-CEC on the shield and your tv. This will allow you to turn on the Shield, the TV and the Sound bar all at the same time with just the Shield's remote. Also, turn on the HDMI-CEC volume control (alongside in the TV settings). I only need the Shield's remote through this setting to turn on, and even mute and adjust volume.

    Ai Upscaling Beast!

    I am extremely impressed with the Ai Upscaling! So glad that I learned about this product online! It blows away the internal processor on my 75” Sony X900h. I wasn’t happy with the clarity of the tv itself but when I added the Nvidia Shield TV Pro it made lower quality video POP! Watching older shows look so vivid now.

    Great Media player,..4 1/2 Stars

    I'm not a gamer I purchase this for streaming Movies and TV Shows.I must say the 4k picture quality is great that without the upscaling turn on.Easy set up althought I dislike the keyboard that could be improved,as I stated before I'm not a gamer so I can't speak on that part off this device but I heard it was great also according to the reviews on (YT).As for Download and Streaming speeds we know that depends on your service provider and the tier of mbps you have with them although it seen Streaming does work faster with my NSTVP. The player looks great and the control remote feel good your hand.

    Very responsive and accurate tracking

    I am strangely picky about mice. I can't stand Bluetooth mice because the latency, and the imperfect tracking drives me crazy. This mouse supports Bluetooth, but also supports its own proprietary wireless mode in conjunction with an included USB adapter. My last mouse was a razer pro click wireless, which supported these same modes, but it was white and didn't match my new PC setup. I tried the Logitech MX master 3, but I found it's wireless adapter mode to perform no better than Bluetooth (poorly), so ended up returning it. Unlike the MX master, this mouse performs excellent with its wireless adapter.

    Expensive but R&D and craftsmanship isnt cheap

    As an owner of the FinalMouse Ultralight, Logitech G Pro Wired, Roccat Kone Pure, etc etc- I have my fair share of experiences with mice. Despite it's high price point I was confident in my purchase given Logitech's stellar track record of hardware.

    What I opened once it arrived was a mouse that truly is setting a gold standard. The wireless technology is unmatched on the market, the buttons have a satisfying click to them, the RGB is minimal and not obnoxious, one if not the top sensor on the market and all bundled into 80 grams. An insane feat to achieve.

    I have a 20cm by 9.5cm hand size with a fingertip grip, the mouse is rated as a medium size so if you're looking for a large mouse, this may not be for you. It's also skinnier than the average mouse, perfect for me but maybe not for you. The best bet is to take the plunge when you see one and give it a few hours of use to decide. It's going to take a lot from the competitors to sway me away from this mouse!

    Lightweight - Super Fast

    I have been using the G Pro Wireless for about 2 weeks now. I have gamed with it, worked with it, and made it my daily driver for this time period to get a good feel for it. My normal work mouse is the Logitech M705 Marathon mouse (used for over 7 years now), and my original gaming mouse was a Logitech G602. I love wireless mice, and refuse to use wired because I hate dragging the cord around. That's what drew me to this mouse. The super fast Lightspeed transmitter really makes the difference, and I had no discernible input lag. I am also a sucker for RGB peripherals.

    When I first pulled the mouse out of the box I honestly didn't care for how it felt in my hands. The outer shell felt too smooth to me. The G602 has a textured outer shell and the M705 has a rubber coated shell. I had always preferred a textured/grippy outershell for any mouse I used. I got used to it pretty quickly, but it was off-putting at first (mostly due to callouses on my hands not feeling any grip). In the end I got used to the texture and had no problem gripping it - the shape of the mouse is really comfortable which helped. The next thing I noticed was how light this mouse is. 80 grams! My M705 is 135g and my G602 is a whopping 152g! Even my kids' little M325c weighs 93g, and its tiny! I never noticed how heavy my mice were until I started using this mouse. It's insane how light it is. Several of my gaming coworkers commented that it felt too light for them, so I let them drive it for a half hour each. When their half hour was up they were much more open to it, so maybe it converted them? The weight of the mouse just lets it become an extension of your hand vs. a paperweight you drag around. It really disappears, and the shape is ergonomically pleasing.

    Most of my time was spent using it for work - I spend 8+ hours a day at my work computer doing 3D CAD modeling, as well as CorelDraw, and database work. These last few weeks I have been churning out a lot of new models and drawings, so I have been clicking and moving this mouse around like a madman. In my past experience with my M705 I would experience wrist and index finger fatigue from this level of activity. I didn't feel that at all with the G Pro Wireless (GPW). The lightweight (80g) body of the mouse just kind of melted away and made it easy for rapid movements around my model. The LMB click weight is also super light, and vastly more responsive than my M705 and G602. I can honestly say that I have gotten finger cramps in the past from working like this, but the GPW never left my finger feeling strained. My only complaint for office work is the lack of Hyper-Fast Scrolling that my M705 has. That is a super handy feature when doing database work, but I know the weight of the Hyper-Fast wheel is a penalty for a mouse trying to be as ultralight as possible.

    For my time spent gaming I played Far Cry 5 and Overwatch. FC5 doesn't necessarily need an ultralight high-speed mouse, but I wanted to play it the last few nights ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. The jump from my G602 to the GPW was dramatic. My god the weight savings were so beneficial - being able to easily flick the mouse with no effort was awesome. The Hero sensor is so much more accurate than the sensor in my G602. I always had trouble being consistent with my shots using the G602. I can tell my accuracy has been sharpened with the Hero sensor. I can run at a higher sensitivity now, and still be accurate whereas before I would find myself overshooting my onscreen target. That lightweight LMB click was so crisp in comparison to the G602, that I got back into using McCree for my hero for the first time in a while. I found it difficult to use the right-side rear button in practice (I'm right handed btw), so I swapped out the button for the 'flush' mount button. It was pretty easy to setup a game profile in the Logitech Gaming Software, so I assigned the side buttons (and disabled the one I swapped out) for my Overwatch profile. PC gaming stuff isn't supposed to be this easy to work with, but here I am happily playing my games with a new mouse without a care in the world.

    For my gaming sessions I picked up the Logitech Powerplay mouse pad that wirelessly charges the mouse. I played games with and without the wireless charging weight, so I could get a accurate impression of its effect. The wireless charging disk on the bottom of the mouse adds about 10g - still a svelte 90g for the whole mouse. After a couple of hours playing with and without, I honestly couldn't tell much of a difference. The extra weight barely registered on my performance in Overwatch. I did fiddle with my DPI settings to account for the change in weight, which I think softened its effect on my games. Also, the RGB on the mouse syncs with the RGB of the pad - very nice.

    Overall, I am really enjoying the G Pro Wireless. The only drawback I found was the lack of Hyper-Fast Scrolling (like in the G903), but I can get over that because there are several great features that make up for it. If you are a serious gamer with equally serious reservations about wireless, I would say that the GPW can assuage those fears. Good luck and happy gaming!

    Great but not worth $150

    This mouse is the lightest mouse I've ever held. So if you are looking for a light mouse, this is it. About how fast it responds, well, I don't notice a lag, but I didn't notice a lag with some cheaper wireless mice. But I'm assuming it's doing its job because this is Logitech and I doubt they would lie about its speed. The reason I didn't give this mouse 5 stars is because I don't think the price is justified in the mouse for the following reasons:

    (1) Button Placement. This mouse only has two side buttons on each side, and they are placed in positions that I didn't find comfortable (I was used to playing with a mouse that had 12 buttons on the side that were in much easier to reach places). If you are used to the positions on these buttons based on previous mice you have used, then this shouldn’t be a problem. But as for me, it really hurt my hand to get my thumb to move to those positions. I'm now proficient at it after 2 months of using it and it no longer hurts.

    (2) Accuracy. I didn’t notice a difference between this mouse and other mice that are much cheaper, with regard to their accuracy. Maybe I'm not pro enough to evaluate this mouse in this regard. I am only rated 3400 SR in Overwatch (Diamond), I've never been to Masters or Grand Masters. Maybe one of them should write a review in regards to its accuracy, because as for me, I don't notice a difference. All this talk about a 16K accurate sensor, it might be that accurate, but I can’t tell it apart from cheaper mice.

    (3) Don't get tricked! This mouse is reported to have a 1ms response rate, which is on par with wired speeds, but what they don't tell you is that the reason it has 1ms response rate is because they have a USB extender attached to the wireless receiver, that you must place within 20 cm of your mouse to achieve those speeds (about 8 inches). To be honest, that kind of defeats the purpose of having a wireless mouse. Also, the booklet does not go into detail about whether the front of the mouse must be within 8 inches, or the whole mouse has to be within 8 inches (I provided pictures so you can see what that looks like). Based off the drawing, it seems like only the front of the mouse has to be within 8 inches, which in this case, is actually not that bad if you are already used to playing on medium sized mouse pads. I am one of the few gamers who needs an XL gaming pad due how spread out my arms are when I game. But, if you think you can keep all your mouse movements within 8in of the wireless receiver, then this shouldn’t pose a problem. I just don't like that they hid this fact in their promotion of the mouse. Seems a little deceptive.

    All in all, I decided to keep the mouse because I really hate wired and because I have the cash to burn. But I don’t think a lot of gamers think $150 is burnable money on a mouse, so in that regard, I don’t think the price is justified in the tech specs. As a result, I only give this 4/5 stars.

    Great wireless gaming mouse

    Way overpriced, like all Logitech products. However, Logi always puts out top of the line quality with their higher tier peripherals. If you dont mind spending $100 on a mouse, i highly recommend this one.

    G Pro Wireless is my HERO

    Logitech - G PRO HERO Wireless Gaming Mouse

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ***** The Review *****

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse contains one of the best sensors yet it doesn’t scream “gaming”. It’s an extremely stripped down design that was made to perform, but don’t be fooled; the mouse is definitely not fragile. The mouse is incredibly light (80G). When I say light, I literally mean light. If you’ve ever held one of those Scotch Shipping tape rolls (the red plastic one), the mouse is just a little bit heavier than that. I guess it ultimately depends on your preference. For me personally, I do enjoy using a lighter mouse since I play with pretty low sensitivity on FPS games. So if ever need to do those sudden “flick” shots, you won’t have any problem doing that with the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is quite small. It’s not so small that it’s uncomfortable or anything though. Whether you’re a palm or claw grip user, I think you'll find the mouse still comfortable; even during long gaming sessions.

    The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse sports a top of the line sensor while remaining subtle with it’s simple yet beautiful barebone design. The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse contains the HERO 16K sensor made by Logitech. Lets just put it this way, I had 0 issues getting headshots in competitive FPS games. If you’re not into FPS and need it for something like Starcraft 2, you won’t have any problems gliding across your mousepad with the G Pro Wireless. The HERO 16K sensor gives you the ability to adjust your DPI from 100 ~ 16,000 and does not have any smoothing, filtering, or acceleration. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse was made to be perfectly ambidextrous. You have your standard left click button, right click button, and a clickable scroll wheel. With the G Pro Wireless, you’ll find thumb buttons on either side of the mouse. So this means it’s perfect for either right or left hand users. With the G Pro Wireless, you also have the option to swap out the thumb buttons so that it’s “tailored” to either right or left handed users. Another personal preference mentioned here is the DPI switch. Instead of being on top of the mouse like other traditional gaming mice, it’s located on the bottom. I personally don’t have a problem with this because depending on which game I am going to launch, I’ll have my DPI setting adjusted prior to gaming anyways. I like this better as there have been times where I accidently change my DPI while shooting on other mice. Speaking of the underbelly of the mouse, it also has a storage compartment for the USB dongle. If you already own the Logitech Powerplay or want to purchase it (Logitech’s Charing Mouse Pad), the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse is also compatible with that.

    The G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse by Logitech also utilizes the traditional Logitech Gaming Software or the newer Logitech software called Logitech G Hub. This is where “preference” comes into play again; you can use either or. With the software from Logitech, it allows you to to customize DPI levels, set up macros, and control RGB lighting (along with other neat features). Adjusting the lighting allows you to control the G logo, the palm area of the mouse, and the 3 DPI indicator lights on the top of the mouse. Logitech states that the mouse can last on an estimated time of 40 ~ 50 hours on one single charge (dependant on different lighting profiles though of course). For whatever reason if you forget to charge your G Pro Wireless Mouse, you can always simply just plug it in with the included long braided cable.

    The bottom line is if you decide to purchase the Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse; you will be rocking an incredibly light mouse that is wireless, sports one of the best sensors (HERO) out there made by Logitech, and is a mouse that you won’t be afraid to whip out and use in public with it’s beautiful yet elegant and simple design. I personally don’t have any cons to note for this gaming peripheral. Everyone out there knows that if you’re a hardcore PC gamer, not only do you need a high end gaming PC; you deserve high end gaming peripherals as well. The Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse does not disappoint.

    The option to customize the RGB is a welcome one

    Yes, I paid an extra $20 so I could have the option to turn off the LED while streaming, ha ha. I had the original QuadCast with bright red LEDs. The sound quality was top-notch. However, no matter where I put it on my desk near my voice while I was gaming, it was so hard not to get distracted by the bright red LED. So I returned the original QuadCast to get the QuadCast S. I think it's worth the additional $20 if LED color matching or simply turning off the LED when it's live is something worth a lot to you.

    With the QuadCast S, you get the same mic only that the rear connection is USB-C (thank goodness) and through the beta software, you can turn OFF the LED when the mic is live and leave the LED on when it is muted. So I have mine set to have a red LED on when muted, and off altogether when live. Such a welcome option. Especially if you just want a nice mic without the lights yelling out "LOOK! LOOK! THIS IS A GAMER MIC!" - lol.

    Overall, this mic is one of the best USB mics I've used so far (it surpasses my old Blue Yeti USB which is surprising, plus that thing is a HUGE mic and is quite the eyesore to look at).

    Note: Probably best to get an additional pop filter. Even though this mic is advertised to have a "built-in pop filter", it's not that great to be honest. Throw in another pop filter to adequately remedy any annoying 'plosives'. Also, get a boom arm for this mic :-)

    Fantastic Mic worth every penny!

    Fantastic mic with no complaints. I have this mic set up at my desk for recording voice overs and some game chat.

    Solid mic with crystal clear quality, comes with a built in shock mount, stand, fully customizable RGB and an internal Pop Filter.

    Has 4 different sound profiles which allow you to record directly in front of the mic, front and back, left and right, or a 360° area around the mic. (Compatible with PC and Playstation but not XBOX and Switch unfortunately...)

    This mic also attaches to most boom arms and uses a custom USB Type-C Cord to power it. The mic also sports a simple Touch-to-Mute button at the top of the mic. When the Light goes off, the mic is muted. When the light is on, its recieving audio.

    (I added an extra Pop Filter to the mic due to the built in one not being enough for my liking.)

    Nvidia Streaming Supremacy?

    I have been looking at the Nvidia Shield for a looooong time and finally decided to buy it as a birthday present for myself. I have several streaming devices in my house from Roku, Google, AirTV, and Xfinity. The main things that attracted me to the Shield are Dolby Atmos support in Netflix, built in Chromecast, and the AI upscaling. All of my favorite apps work - Pandora, Hoopla, Peacock, YouTube TV, and Disney +. I am still figuring out the various features but am not sold on the upscaling as it seems to over sharpen most of the source material. Time will tell if my opinion grows stronger but I like most of what I've seen from this device.

    Worth it!

    If you have fast internet a 4k tv and a decent sound bar you want this.

    The upscaling alone makes this worth it.

    I was using ps4 for streaming and everything else.

    I still love my ps4 but shield tv is much more versatile in terms of content and connectivity. I still haven't really scratch the surface.

    I do have a few cons though, mainly having to do with customization which is something android is known for so hopefully we will see more options down the road.

    I love my Nvidia Shield TV Pro ~ In the past I've purchased the Fire Stick , Fire TV Cube and MIBOX but the best out of all of them was the Nvidia Shield TV Pro ~ Take my advice if you don't have the money right now save and be happy of the purchase instead of regretting the decision 2 or 3 months down the line of one of the other purchases

    Bought for Gamestream

    Not gonna lie, I bought this mainly for gamestream, then as streaming device second. Gamestream is a headache to setup but once you have 1) really good gaming rig, 2) fix whatever bugs there are, this is capable of gamestreaming 4k60 even with a very fast 5ghz wifi (I have Ac3150 beamforming router with AC1900 beamforming capable card on the rig). So far I've played Rocket League, a few Assassin's Creed games, and tried Battlefield V Campaign for the lol. Stutters only come if someone walks through the hallway between the router and the office where the Desktop is situated. Aside from that, the 4k60 stream is excellent and the wireless xbox360 gamepad input lag is bearable to singleplayer games. Don't bother trying on games that require no input lag at all.

    The AI Upscale is a pleasant surprise and Netflix standard streaming looks like a legit 4k stream. Compared to when I stream directly from my Smart TV. On the other hand, my 4k HDR streams from Disney Channel is working flawlessly with my HDR capable TV.

    On another note, my Dolby digital sound is going through the the shield, then to TV then to TV's HDMI ARC connected to a samsung Dolby 5.1 Soundbar + wireless soundwoofer & rear speakers. So I can attest that Dolby passthrough works. Not sure about Dolby atmos though.

    It is also good for running android games or if you subscribe, Nvidia's GeForce Now. Also, the price is pretty high up there so the only worth it specs from this device is the gamestream and the AI upscale. If you can't justify that cost, you should try looking at other cheaper streaming device then.

    Side note, turn on HDMI-CEC on the shield and your tv. This will allow you to turn on the Shield, the TV and the Sound bar all at the same time with just the Shield's remote. Also, turn on the HDMI-CEC volume control (alongside in the TV settings). I only need the Shield's remote through this setting to turn on, and even mute and adjust volume.

    Ai Upscaling Beast!

    I am extremely impressed with the Ai Upscaling! So glad that I learned about this product online! It blows away the internal processor on my 75” Sony X900h. I wasn’t happy with the clarity of the tv itself but when I added the Nvidia Shield TV Pro it made lower quality video POP! Watching older shows look so vivid now.

    Great Media player,..4 1/2 Stars

    I'm not a gamer I purchase this for streaming Movies and TV Shows.I must say the 4k picture quality is great that without the upscaling turn on.Easy set up althought I dislike the keyboard that could be improved,as I stated before I'm not a gamer so I can't speak on that part off this device but I heard it was great also according to the reviews on (YT).As for Download and Streaming speeds we know that depends on your service provider and the tier of mbps you have with them although it seen Streaming does work faster with my NSTVP. The player looks great and the control remote feel good your hand.

    Philips Hue Play White & Color Ambiance Light

    I really enjoy this light and plan to get a few more. It's is a bit of an investment. They are on the expensive side and you MUST have a Philips Hue Bridge dock to set it up which is more money spent but I'm very pleased with the result. They are small and light enough to put pretty much anywhere. I am also grateful they came with an easy screw on dock for a standing light. Great app with simple and easy use that can be used with other light software. I use this light and another Philips Hue brand light for my own stream light aesthetics and I absolutely love how it has come out. If you can find this product on sale, you are golden!

    Hue play bar perfect addition to Game Room TV

    The Hue Play Bar goes perfect with my Samsung Q70 65’ TV. I set up both LED bars behind my TV using the 3M tape to attach the bars. I did not want the light from the bars to overwhelm the TV in the background. And the amount of light is just perfect for me. I plan on adding the Hue Play HDMI next week when it comes out. It will complete the 4K movie watching experience with the LED Bars lighting syncing with the movie. I might add an additional hue light strip behind the seating area down the road. But for now the two led bars and the hue light on the lamp will due.

    Worth it.

    A bit expensive and I wish they where longer but completely worth it. I've built my own addressable LED setups with Arduino before and it's totally possible to get the same look for cheaper but what makes this better is the functionality and compatibility with multiple different platforms and your not getting stuck doing all the heavy lifting in the form of integration because Philips constantly updates the devices with their own patch work. They are adding more 3rd party partners as well which is cool. The video mode through Windows is absolutely amazing if set up right as well. I would recommend these but also recommend Philips to MAKE A LARGER SET!!! lol

    Accurate and Excellently Weighted

    KEY FEATURES

    Fully Customizable

    26000 dpi Resolution

    Up to 1000Hz Polling

    INITIAL SET-UP AND CONFIGURATION

    My opinions of the Razer Synapse software stated in my review of the Huntsman keyboard carryover to the Basilisk mouse. I won't rehash all the details, but I do not like the Synapse software. Like the keyboard, the freshly downloaded Synapse software would not recognize the Basilisk mouse without first downloading a 100+MB software update. Additionally, Windows 10 did not recognize the device after plugging it in either. So initial set-up is definitely WAY MORE cumbersome than most any other mouse on the market.

    USE AND PERFORMANCE

    The mouse is great! It is weighted perfectly and glides smoothly and precisely. The mouse has a premium texture and feel about it. The left and right buttons have the same odd texture that the new Huntsman keyboard has. Like the keyboard, it feels odd at first, but after a couple of minutes, you wonder why other mice don't have the same texture.

    The Synapse software allows for full customization of the mouse. Buttons, Macros, sensitivity, scrolling, precision, it is all there and fully adjustable to your liking. Similar to Razer's other products, the lighting is bright and vibrant. The colors are rich and true, unlike some other manufacturers' products that tend to look dull and washed out. One unique feature that is a gimmick, but I find thoroughly enjoyable is the LED strip a the bottom of the mouse. It is recessed just enough that it makes the mouse appear like it is levitating on the mousepad. Cool!

    FINAL THOUGHTS

    It's hard to write a huge amount about a mouse. But final thoughts are that I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed. It is a precise and well-made piece of hardware that manages to satisfy what gamers' want as well as what business and casual users need.

    If you are already invested in the Razer infrastructure and in need of a new mouse, this should be a no-brainer. If you are not already invested, but need a mouse and have been curious about Razer's qualities, you won't be disappointed and may very well win you over to their universe.

    Like my review of other Razer products, this is a 5 star mouse hampered by 3 star software. I don't see how this mouse wouldn't serve any buyer well.

    An easy to use colorful gaming mouse

    I’ve been bouncing back and forth between a small wireless mouse and a trackpad for a long time now. So, switching over to a wired gaming mouse was an intriguing opportunity. The mouse is very lightweight and easy to move around. My main computer is a Mac and I didn’t have any issues with connecting it for use.

    The packaging is simple and well defined. I’ve seen a lot of mouses have poorly designed retail boxes, but this one is hard to miss and you can easily identify the mouse as the Razer Basilisk V3. If you have a machine that uses Windows 10 or higher, you can take full advantage of the programmable mouse buttons alongside the Razer Cortex software. The form of the mouse is great and it fits most hands. The scroll wheel can switch between smooth and clicky. I’ve had this feature for a while with my wireless mouse so it was a welcome addition to this model.

    I didn't have any issues with moving the mouse around on my XL mouse/desk pad. The mouse is very comfortable use and the placement of the buttons is great. The shape/design of the mouse is also very aesthetically pleasing. It just looks really cool. I love that it has RGB lights built in. They are bright and colorful. I don’t usually like wired mouses because the wire clutters up my desktop. The cable on this mouse is lightweight and honestly, I haven’t noticed it much. I don’t feel tethered to anything like I usually do when I am using a wired mouse.

    The mouse is a quality product and incredibly solid in nature. It’s easy to use for gaming as well as standard operating procedures.

    Responsive and light

    Pros

    Relatively light

    Cord isn’t even noticeable

    5 profiles can be stored onboard

    Notched and free spin wheel

    Cons

    No glide

    pad on the right side of mouse

    Design

    At first glance, you would be forgiven if you thought the Basilisk V3 was a V2. Externally the changes are subtle. The trigger button is not fixed in place, not removable, and is shorter. A light now surrounds the base which causes the base to glow. Underneath, the control to switch from notched scrolling to free spin is gone and has been replaced with a software control of the mode. Also, underneath is a profile switch button as it can now store up to 5 profiles directly into onboard storage.

    Setup and Performance

    While not the lightest mouse available, the Basilisk feels light and comfortable in the hand. It is very flickable and switch activation is fast without being so touchy as to allow accidental activation. The Speedflex cable seems unnoticeable and thankfully doesn’t seem to snag on anything. It feel as though it were a wireless mouse. Quick movements are precise with no perceptible lag over overshoot.

    At first glance, the most noticeable change over the previous generation is the lighting. However, the most significant change is the scroll wheel. You can change from natural scrolling to notched scrolling using a button on the top, but the control is electronic. This means you can also control it through software and via game profiles. You can also a setting where you have the wheel change modes based on speed. Go slow and it is in notched mode but speed up enough and it becomes free spinning. It seems like a nice idea but the transition between modes is abrupt and somewhat odd as you hear it click and feel it change feel during operation. This possibly is a feature that you can get accustomed to, but for now it’s interesting but odd. Most people would likely choose to set it in the preferred mode manually or use the profile switch option as it is more seamless. Where is really comes in handy is in profiles. Do you like the wheel to scroll freely outside of games but need finer control in game? Just set your game profile for notched movement of the wheel. When you fire up the game it will automatically switch modes on the wheel. Once you exit, it switches back to free spinning all on its own. The buttons feel consistent and activate almost exactly at the same moment you hear and feel the click, possibly just slightly before. The pressure required is well weighted, not overly sensitive nor too hard. If there was any criticism of the design, it would be the glide pads. While having a large left pad and only a tiny pad around the sensor for the right works, it seems likely that down the wrong this could cause issues.

    With Razer Synapse you can map and change the function of each button and the scroll wheel. You can also create profiles that automatically switch between games. A nice additional is onboard profile storage. If you want to take your mouse with you, you can also store up to 5 profiles directly into the onboard storage on the mouse. You can switch between them using a profile switch on the bottom. This way you don’t have to have Synapse installed in every place you use the Basilisk. Just make to upload the profiles you need before you go.

    Final Thoughts

    It’s hard top find fault with the Razer Basilisk V3. It’s smooth, responsive, and feels comfortable. If you are in the market for a gaming mouse and are open to the idea of a wired one, its worth giving the Basilisk V3 a try. You might find yourself happy surprised you chose a wired.

    A serious mouse for serious gamers

    The Razer Basilisk V3 wired optical mouse is a terrific mouse for gamers. With 11 programmable buttons, you can not only make it work for you, but customize it for every game you play. My first recommendation is to use the Razer software called Synapse. It allows you to make adjusts to the buttons and the RGB lighting, and you can create an account or login to your existing one, to save your settings. The Synapse software is used for a lot of Razer products, so if you also have a Razer keyboard, you can use the same program to adjust both devices.

    The software is also a good place to figure out what all those buttons do. In my case, my previous mice was simpler so I needed a little help. You can also use the Chroma Studio to sync the RGB colors with other lighting devices, including Philips Hue lightbulbs. Nanoleafs have been discontinued, but are still supported to some degree, at least for now, although it says July 2021.

    Out of the box, the mouse was a litte too fast for me, but one of the default buttons changes the DPI, so I could quickly switch to the perfect setting. The mouse feels very responsive and accurate, and it was a pleasure playing games with it. It does a great job at non-gaming tasks too, like browsing.

    I would argue that this is the most complete mouse on the market, in terms of functionality, at least for gamers. The scroll button in particular, is so much more useful than a typical one, especially since you can go sideways, but also because of alternative smart scrolling settings.

    I found the Basilisk V3 to be comfortable after hours of use, which is important for extended gaming sessions. It’s wired, but as long as the cable is placed correctly, that shouldn’t be a concern, and it’s made out of a nice, soft material that doesn’t get stuck as easily as typical rubber cables. I’m glad it’s wired actually because it keeps the latency and connection in check.

    Judging by the feel of the material and continued use of buttons and wheel, this thing feels like it’s built to last a long time. This was my first Razer mouse, but it doesn’t look like it will be my last. The price seems pretty fair to me, considering the quality of the product. I have no harsh criticisms for this mouse, at least not after a few days of use, so I’m giving it two thumbs up.

    So fluid.

    You have to appreciate the plug and play ability of this mouse and all things supported by Razer’s Synapse desktop client. RGB has come a long way and the ease to set this up is highly appreciated. The software will automatically be offered for you to download when this is plugged into your computer if it is set to do so.

    It feels really light to the touch in operation. Not only does it look like it’s floating with the ring of LEDs active at the base, it feels like it as well. I also didn’t find that I was having an issue with accidental clicks because of how effortless it is to move. The cord is made of one of the lightest and softest cables I have ever tested on a mouse. It’s a lot like a shoelace and has no discernable drag on a desk surface. It may sound like an odd description, but it is an incredible design.

    One of my favorite settings that I found so far are on the scroll wheel. Changing the tactile spin in a program rather than a physical toggle on the mouse itself is an excellent weight saving design. The Smart-Reel option is perfect for getting to the end of a long web page or document. Every button is customizable. Run programs, enter text, change sensitivity, change profiles, run shortcuts, disable buttons, change lighting, etc. Even the profile button at the base of the mouse can be customized to do something you would otherwise not ever want to do with an accidental click.

    I’m sure most consumers of RGB products buy them for the looks. And this mouse absolutely delivers there. The absurdly easy integration with Wallpaper Engine is...legit. However, I encourage you to dive into Synapse and really look into how you can make your daily computing and gaming experience more efficient using the wide range of custom options it offers.

    Fantastic mouse for a fantastic price

    Great mouse! It is well priced and well designed. I love the RGB lighting. Synapse can customize the RGB lighting, DPI, surface calibration, and button mapping.

    The new scroll wheel is god tier. It's awesome and extremely satisfying. Razer totally nailed it!

    Pros:

    - lots of beautiful RGB lighting

    - well placed thumb buttons

    - free-spin scroll wheel works great

    - super comfortable in the hand

    - very flexible wire

    - the optical switches feel great and have a nice click noise

    Cons:

    - the "sniper" DPI button is a bit too mushy, I would have liked it to be more firm and clicky, a bit too much force to press it in my opinion

    - the scroll wheel is a little bit louder than my previous mouse, but it's not too bad after getting used to it

    - a little over 100g is a bit heavy, but it feels very familiar coming from my previous mouse

    - the two buttons below the scroll wheel (scroll wheel lock/unlock and DPI adjustment) can be a bit awkward to press sometimes

    - not fingertip grip friendly, palm grip is best. claw grip will be fine. small hands will feel awkward, medium and large hands will feel comfortable

    Overall, a very solid mouse and I'm loving it so far. I highly recommend trying it out!

    The limits of value and performance

    The right-handed ergonomic design and appearance is very clearly the Thunderbird family style. Its size is medium to large, its lines are round and natural, and its weight of 101 grams is much lighter than the G502. v3's two scroll wheel modes are very surprising, which is why there was a delay in switching to Thunderbird. The newly added RGB light band is very stunning, and it can bring users a more excellent lighting atmosphere performance.

    High quality microphone and webcam

    Very professional sounding microphone. I have been asked several times if I am a streamer in games because of the quality. Webcam is crystal clear and I often receive compliments on the video quality in Zoom calls. I choose to run it at 760p 60fps instead of 1080p 30fps because it has less artifacts while using autofocus.

    Why 4 stars?

    It's because the microphone picks up EVERY noise, including echo and keyboard clicks. I had to install sound treatment in my office to reduce echo and a windscreen to reduce keyboard clicks. Also had to buy a microphone boom arm with a suspension mount to avoid the microphone picking up common desk sounds (like bumping the desk with a chair).

    Awesome deal, when it’s on discount :)

    I got this on 11/23 when it was on sale for $129. The mic is the blackout version, you also get the c922 Logitech webcam with the mini tripod stand, and a 3 month free code for xsplit if you want. The c922 is basically the c920 with some upgrades that don’t really matter.

    If you love the c920 the c922 does everything it does, plus a little more. I posted an unboxing on YouTube, but links aren’t allowed in reviews, so I’ve included a picture.

    I highly recommend this bundle when it’s discounted at $129, but the full $229 price is the same, or even sometimes more expensive than buying separately and then you can choose your mix color. At $129 I couldn’t pass up on the deal.

    Replaced my Apple Watch with this gem. I like the durability and the battery life is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I took mine on a 5 day hunt. Using the "breadcrumbs" GPS feature (without phone connected), weather, and other features it still was at 1/2 charge when I got home. I like the physical buttons and the "find my phone" actually pings the phone until you find it.... not once so you have to button smash your wrist.... (cough cough....Apple). BUY THIS WATCH if your about having something that actually works and has useful features. DO NOT buy this watch if your hipster friends will ridicule you for spending money on something "non apple" because they "fight the machine."

    I really want it to like this so called smart watch. It has some cool features and really bridges the gap between smart watch and hybrid . Battery life is amazing. It seems like it has everything I was looking for in a smart watch except for the touchscreen. I really wanted a touch screen.

    But no dealbreaker. I did not like the fact that my sleep was not being monitored correctly especially after trying some of the other options out there in the past

    I slept during the afternoon one day and I did not monitor my sleep at all. I thought I would use the esports feature but I let it fall by the wayside.This watch is for someone out there but that someone is it me. I am definitely taking this back.

Maybe I was to hyper and exited for my expectations. This one counts on your clothes that you wear. Nothing like this has happened with this game before.

    Another great FarCry title, but needs some patches

    I have been playing this for a month now, taking my time, and am not quite through the main story line. I have enjoyed the last few FarCry releases and this is no exception. You star as a guerilla fighter in a corrupt Carribean nation working to rally countrymen to the cause and topple the military and corrupt dictator, played by Giancarlo Esposito from Breaking Bad. The stealth kill opportunities are numerous, fun weapons, funny dialogue, huge map, amazing graphics on the PS5.

    My one complaint, Ubisoft should have spent a few more weeks debugging this title before release. I did not experience the technical glitches that are present here on any of the prior releases. Weird stuff, like when you parachute into a military area to start a mission, it wont let you boot up any of your weapons from the weapon wheel. No bueno! Frantic jittery image playback at a few points. One time I was flying a plane on a mission, the screen went dark and then jumped to end game animation with the character in a chaise lounge on the beach. Just weird. But I can forgive that, because the game is that good. When the game starts, choose the female Dani character. She is excellent.

    Same Far Cry Experience

    If you're a fan of Far Cry games, you'll enjoy this. If this is your first Far Cry, you're in for a treat as this is probably one of the more polished entries into the series.

    Its not a perfect 5/5 for me because of the way Ubisoft is doubling down on size and amount of things to do. This is subjective of course, some gamers love the value in a game that gives you dozens and dozens of hours of gameplay. But ultimately I found myself at around the 10 hour mark completely overwhelmed by just how much is going on within the map... and how big said map is.

    My other criticism is the RPG element Ubisoft has injected into this, which is the mechanic of requiring the right type of ammunition for different enemies. This mechanic quickly becomes tedious to manage, and doesn't give you that feel of having 1 or 2 favorite guns that you rely on for the majority of the game.

    So not sure if I'll finish this - but definitely a great "value" game that will keep fans entertained for a long time.

    I have been waiting for this game to finally release and I can honestly say I'm not disappointed with it! I've had a lot of fun and im no where near done with the main story line. I've enjoyed it and highly recommend it to old fans of the Far Cry series and new!

    Great addition to FC series

    Main villain is very good, great voice acting. Map is huge with lots of bases, roadblocks to capture. Lots of weapons, vehicles that are all customizable. New features include customizable backpack weapons that serve as a finisher, followers you can recruit and send on missions, some lite base building. Skill tree is gone and somewhat replaced by gear options. Guns for hire seems mostly focused on animal companions. Graphics are great on ps5 but I have noticed some screen tearing. I have enjoyed far cry 4, 5, and primal and 6 is another great addition to the series

    The first real Far Cry game in years

    This really takes me back to what I enjoyed about the Far Cry series years ago. It feels like playing through Far Cry 3 again for the first time. Compelling story in a tropical setting with some serious elements mixed with some whacky stuff too. Lots of vehicles and weapons to suit any play style (I personally prefer stealth most of the time). The graphics and voice acting (as well as mocap) is all very well done. This is one of the best Far Cry games I've played in years and really happy to see the series returning to what made it so great. It's still a very open world experience with some guidance but allows you to take things on at your own pace and with some freedom in the order in which you do things. Definitely worth picking up a copy!

    It's a Far Cry game!

    A lot of complaints out there that the Far Cry blueprint is getting old and that this iteration doesn't add enough to the formula to distinguish it from previous versions.

    Maybe so. But I am having fun with it. It's great on the PS5, super fast and responsive, and it looks great. Stealth is harder in this game than previous ones, which is actually cool. And I feel like there are a wider array of mission types than before so that's a plus.

    My only complaint is that the Spanglish and cultural cues are condescending and a bit cringe (that's as nice as I can put it), but that's pretty much a Far Cry trademark as well, isn't it?

    Overall pretty fun.

    Same FarCry, but still the same fun

    FarCry 6 is pretty much more of what you come to expect from the series. It has a lot of side activities, and things to collect. They took different ideas from their other games like Ghost Recon. One of those is collecting guns in crates to add to your arsenal. The grqphics are nice, but I do believe that it's time to leave last gen behind at some point. It looks good, but it could look way better if made for next gen only. I have not finished the game yet, but what I have played is extremely fun, and highly recommended.

    Must have!

    If you have and elite strap, this is a must have case! Well worth the price! Fits your quest 2 perfectly with no movement. A solid case. It has a pocket in the front I think for a charging cable, but I feel it's kinda small, so I put a microfiber cloth in its place.

    Great case

    Good quality case, it's sturdy and I wouldn't be worried if it took a fall. My only real complaint would be that, the headset fits tight with the glasses extension attached. I wish it was designed with the controller holder just a bit to the right and it would be perfect. Love the color and quality.

    Protect you purchase.

    I bought this after about a week and realized a case was a necessity. I have a you tube channel VRGamerz where I play and review everything VR. But I can say this is a great hard shell case. It’s light enough to carry in a backpack while sturdy enough to protect your purchase.

    Quality case from Oculus!

    Does it is claims to do. I was a bit turned off at the price and contemplated the LowePro Drone CS200 case but once I attached the “elite” Quest 2 headpiece, the LowePro was useless as I had to disassemble the unit in order to get it to fit. In comes the Oculus OEM case. Yes it’s 50 bucks but it fits everything perfectly with appropriate grooves to mold your headset. And that includes keeping the elite headpiece attached. I’m not sure what the other guy is talking about who complained that this felt cheap. That’s completely false. This case has a nice heft to it but not too light. The exterior is a bit lighter than the pictures in color. The inside is nice, felt lined and there’s a low profile zipper that keeps everything looking clean. If you do plan on taking this with you places, you’ll probably need to upgrade you backpack as this isn’t a small case. I have include a couple of snaps. At time of picture, I had the Elite strap loaned to a friend. Happy VR’ing!

    Best Quest 2 carrying case

    I love love love this case. It keeps my Quest 2, the controllers, the charger, microfiber cloths, and headphones completely safe and snug. The shell is hard enough to be protective but not so hard that it feels like it could crack manipulated enough. And the design is the best part; it just looks so sleek and futuristic. 10/10 for design, easy to bring along anywhere, and protection.

    Pricey, but nice.

    Pros:

    1. Pretty design

    2. Nice Texture

    3. Looks expensive

    4. Lens compartment has a plastic insert so the controllers won’t scratch the lens.

    Cons:

    1. The Zipper seems fragile, and I don’t like the in seem design.

    2. No padding, hard plastic on the inside.

    3. Expensive, should have a pouch or something else to curve the price.

    My favorite headphones!

    I am thoroughly impressed so far.

    Packaging is simplistic and straight to the point with two peel back tabs that let you inside. From there, you will see the NCH 700's case which was smaller than I thought because they don't fold up like the QC35II's. The case fits in my work bag just fine. However, I do have say it's not as small overall as the QC35II's case. The NCH 700 case has a little magnetic flap inside that stores the audio and USB-C cable. No airplane adapter. Thank you Bose for going USB-C with the NCH 700's. What's left is manuals and warranty cards.

    The feel of the NCH 700's is nice. It's a streamlined design that grew on me and looks very modern. Weight is slightly more than the QC35II's. Build quality is significantly superior with more metals being used and most importantly, the comfort is similar. I would maybe give the slight edge to the QC35II in comfort due to the lower weight, but the NCH 700's is still a very comfortable headphone. The headband adjustment is smooth and should accommodate a wide variety of head sizes just fine. Ear-cup openings is similar to the QC35II with the left and right labels inside the ear cups for easy notation on how to put the headphones on.

    Controls are great and I can say the touch controls are very responsive and intuitive. Swipe up for volume increase. Swipe down for volume decrease. Swipe forward for the next track. Swipe backward for the previous track. Double tap to play and pause. Tap once to accept and incoming call. Tap and hold to reject the call. Tap and hold to go to a shortcut predefined in the app. The current shortcut available was to have the voice prompt alert you of the current battery life in which she tells you the estimated time until the battery is dead. There's 3 dedicated buttons on the NCH 700's. The two on the right is responsible for Power on/Bluetooth pairing and voice assistance/mute mic. The one on the left is to cycle between the 3 preset noice cancelling modes defined with the app. The right earpiece houses the USB-C port and the left earpiece houses the audio input port.

    The app provides a lot of functionality control. You can on the fly scroll though the noise cancelling/ambient modes from 0-10. 0 being like having no headphones on at all and 10 being in your own little acoustical chamber. You can launch Bose AR apps and experience augmented reality with he NCH 700's. Pretty cool. You can select the sources that are connected and add a new source or remove an existing source. The NCH 700 can connect to up to 2 devices at once. You can set your voice assistant between Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa. You can set how much of your voice is heard during phone calls or voice assistant interaction. If you're familiar with the QC35II's Bose Connect app, it's pretty much similar settings you can control.

    Sound on the NCH 700's is clean, open and balanced. No frequency really stands out so you get an accurate representation of your music. I would say they sound similar to the QC35II but with a tighter bass. The Sony WH1000Xm3 has this false stigma that they sound superior to the QC35II but that's because the Sony's accentuate the bass frequencies which to the untrained ear is more exciting and pleasing. This is not a better sound, it's a different sound that is not accurate to the source material. The Bose sounds more accurate, more like being in the studio. A flat sound will not sound exciting to everyone especially those with untrained ears. Sound is subjective overall so you can't go wrong with what you enjoy listening to. I really enjoy the NCH 700's sound. It's a smooth and clear sound that plays well with all genres. If you want a lot of bass, look elsewhere towards the Sony's.

    Noise cancelling is insanely good on the NCH 700's. Probably the best I've experience, but honestly, the Sony WH1000Xm3 set the bar so high in terms of noise cancellation that the NCH 700 doesn't really wow me. I think they are about as equally good, but the NCH 700 takes the cake because I don't get those distortion artifacts when the ANC pressure within the ear cups is disrupted from sudden vibrations to the headphones that plagues the Sony WH1000XM3. For example this is caused by being on a bus while on a bumpy road or running with your headphones on. The ambient mode is very natural feeling on the NCH 700 and it's great being able to have awareness while listening to audio in situations where you don't want to blocked completely from the world. Wish it had the Sony's right hand palm over the ear cup feature where it seamlessly kicks in ambient sound and lowers the music volume so you can quickly hear someone or something and then once your hand leaves the right ear cup, everything reverts back to normal.

    The mains reason the new NCH 700's are the new ANC headphone kings is the voice mic quality on calls and interacting with your voice assistant. It's amazing how clear your voice is projected onto the other line while using the NCH 700. These are killer for conference calls even if you dare take them in the middle of Times Square, NYC.

    Overall, the NCH 700 is a welcome evolution to the Bose headphone line up and I'm sure these will win the hearts of many. Highly recommended!

    Music for your world

    Bose 700 headphones arrived today; the headset system clearly spoke First Class. Upon opening the product box found a carrying case for the Bose 700’s that is both nicely designed and quite suitable for storing or travelling with the headphones.

    The 700’s are both very comfortable wearing and the tactile sensation to the touch in your hand and upon your head is far removed from any headsets that I have previously reviewed/used. The texture of the ear and head cushions are the definition of comfort. The 700’s rest lightly on your head and are basically not noticeable when you put them on, after a few minutes you barely notice you are wearing the headset.

    To setup the 700’s you download the Bose Music app and follow the instructions. Bose Music app will setup popular streaming music services automatically, cool. One item that caught my eye is your current music selection is displayed on app. The extra attention to detail app programming shines through.

    First experience with noise cancellation tech, in a word, Wow. Turned on some James Taylor mid-range volume, put the headset on and at first did not realize that I could not hear an A/C unit just twenty feet from me. Only when I took the headphones off did hit me that all the sounds in the room had “magically” disappeared. You can program three settings from complete noise cancellation to mid and no cancellation, very nice.

    Music is perfectly clear including the most subtle audio with extraordinary spatial environment, each instrument/vocal comes through stunningly. Fact is the 700’s are the best headphones at music reproduction that I have experienced. From a wide range of genres going back to the 60’s through modern and Rock to Phantom of the Opera it was musical bliss.

    Fun Stuff:

    - Controls are well placed and the Touch Surface Controls for volume and track selection are spot on.

    - Battery life should easily deliver twenty hours of fun

    - Conversation mode

    - Built in Alexa - Simple easy setup – Great Feature

    - Mobile call management

    “Bose Headphones 700 feature an unrivaled four-microphone system that picks up and isolates your voice while cancelling the noise around you. You’ll hear and be heard like never before — even in noisy environments.” Good stuff.

    Typically, not a big headphone enthusiast, I have now been converted with the Bose 700 headphones. Bose has covered all the bases in their new headset.

    The 700’s speak class, performance and functionality clearly.

  • Review by EricV, 6 out of 10
    Great features and convenience but lacks detail

    Design/build: The design is polarizing with a minimalist and modern look. The earcups are plastic with synthetic leather earpads. Headband is steel with silicone padding and silicone covering the top. Some minor marring/scratches do occur at the adjustment point of the headband and earcups.

    Comfort: The padding on the earcups and headband provide ample cushioning without getting too hot. The clamping force on the headband is stronger. You will also notice the added weight compared to the QC35II.

    ANC: I find that the ANC is really good but I don't find it any better the WH-1000XM3 or the QC35II. I do like that you adjust the ANC level from 0-10 (hear through-max). I also did not observe white noise or cabin pressure. ANC performance did well in windy environments.

    Sound: It sounds the same as the QC35II. The sound is clear but lacks detail, dynamic range is reduced as you increase volume, soundstage lacks depth. There is a delay between the video and sound, but not too noticeable. Headphone use SBC and AAC audio codecs, no Hi-res codecs such as LDAC or APTX HD

    Controls: I do like that they separated the ANC and assistant buttons. Touch controls on right earcup work well however I feel that the touch area is too small and that the headband interferes with its function.

    Mic/calls: Great improvement in the sound quality. One of the best headphones for making calls.

    Connection: No Bluetooth issues when connected with PC and Android phone. Did not observe stutters while playing music or video. You can connect two devices at the same time.

    App: New Bose app for controlling ANC levels, updating firmware or as a controller for your media. Currently you cannot control your EQ with app. You do need a Bose account to utilize.

    Recommendation: Overall the headphones provide great features and convenience. It works well as an ANC headphones and is excellent for making calls. If you are looking for something with better sound, it's not there. At $400, I cannot recommend these when there are other competing headphones that provide the same or better performance at a lower price.

    Buttery soft headband....

    I was torn between these headphones and Sony’s latest but ended up sticking with Bose. These are definitely an improvement on the Quiet Comfort 35 II. The headband is really soft and I like the way the ear cups attach. I miss that they don’t bend inward for smaller storing but that hinge proved a problem for me. The controls will take some getting used to for me but I like how easy it is to change the volume and track. The fact that they have a magnetic closure for the cord compartment of the case is a big plus and improvement.

    I bought these when they were on sale for $300 which was a great deal.

    Excellent

    Bose - Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

    Included- 20" USB-C to USB-A charging cable, 42' audio only cable, noise cancelling headphones, owner manual, and protective case.

    I have owned a few pairs of Bose headphones, but these are my first noice cancelling headphones. I was so excited for these, knowing what Bose offers.

    Packaging- the box that the headphones came in had a seal on both sides that are supposed to easily tear so the box will open. However, one of the sides didn't work so well and it took a chunk of box out of it. It's not a huge deal, but obviously I would have liked the box to not look janky. Inside, is a nice slim case that zips open and closed with a cloth interior. It holds the headphones and the cables neatly. It's great for storage and travel. That way they won't get damaged or dusty.

    Design- the design is sleek and attractive. I like that they are not gigantic and bulky, which noice cancelling headphones can be. The headband is not wide, only 1" at it's widest point. The size adjusts by sliding the ear cups up and down the headband instead of have another joint to extend or contract. The ear cups don't fold, they turn or pivot flat. It keeps the integrity of the headband better this way. The ear cups and the headband are very comfortable for shorter periods of time. I don't think I'd want to wear any pair all day long.

    I understand nowadays every product has an app to go with it. I also am slightly annoyed that it's required instead of an optional feature. You will have to download the free Bose Music app to proceed. You can customize a name or use a preset option for your headphones. It was easy to pair them to my phones. The app will display your battery life and what song you are playing. The app will not let you customize the sounds on the app. That is something that needs to be added. I expect that from this product and brand. I also wish Bose would consolidate their music apps. I have to have a separate app for their soundbars that I own.

    Controls- Everything is by touch with taps or swipes or a simple touch of a button. It take a little bit of time getting used to but probably will require more If you are left handed since the controls are on the right cup only. I don't use Alexa or Siri too often but I find that Alexa understands me better.

    Sound- I think the sound quality is excellent. I am not disappointed in the 700's at all. I am not a music snob though. I mainly listen to top 40 and it's great for me. The noise cancelling works great too. I love that there are different levels - 0-10. You can also make 3 different favorite settings if you have certain specific needs or situations. Anything to tailor it to your experience is great.

    I'm so glad I have these. I do recommend these if you like Bose, need a wireless noise canceling pair and can afford them.

    Absolutely!

    My very first pair of noise canceling headphones were a Bose that I purchased 7 years ago. I still own and use that pair of Bose QC 15 headphones. Through the years, I have always considered upgrading but have never had a good enough reason to. Mainly because Bose is so consistently good with their headphones that all the newer models have been very similar in sound, comfort and function as my old faithful pair of QC’s. Well, I now find myself with a set of the new Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 and I once again am impressed of how good previous versions of Bose headphones hold up even today. That said, the 700 do feel, look and sound incrementally better to me. Allow me to geek out over the details a bit...

    - The Bose 700 have better passive noise isolation. The headphones block more ambient noise passively by just the cup and pad materials. The trade-off is that the headphones seem to be just ever so slightly more warm to wear than the previous QC15, 25 and 35 models.

    - The active noise cancelation is slightly better also. Perhaps not better but different. The 700 tend to cancel out a few decibels less of the lowest sounds (airplane cabin noise) but then block more than before of the mid to high frequencies (busy office or coffee shop). Personally, I do not fly much so I prefer the noise canceling prowess of the Bose NC 700.

    - The sound signature remains true to Bose’ custom but is ultimately better. The 700 seem to have higher impedance drivers. This means that it takes more electricity to move the electromagnet that moves the drivers which move air creating sound frequencies. Higher impedance drivers means a stronger bass that is more controlled and tight. The trade off to he high impedance speakers which take more energy to drive is twofold: 1) Listening to the headphones passively through the wire sounds significantly worse. These drivers need more amplification than the average 3.5 mm headphone jack provides. 2) Wireless battery life still remains near 20 hours. Personally, I prefer the slightly better sound over more battery life or better sounding passive mode.

    - The 700 have slightly better imaging. Closed back headphones do not do imaging as well as their open back cousins. The soundstage is still within my head but the instrument separation is better than previous Bose. So great to imagine an actual stage in a performance theatre and to be able to hear exactly where each orchestra member is sitting. It just makes music that much more immersive.

    - The highs are better! I read some reviews that say the sound of the higher frequencies such as symbols is inconsistent depending on how the headphones are seated on your ear and how good of a seal there is. I understand this, but to me the highs sound absolutely fantastic. They are not rolled off. A symbol finishes its ring until the very last vibration. There is also no harshness nor brittleness ever at higher volumes. The highs are very very nicely done for a noise canceling headphone. Now, if you wear glasses and do not have as good of a seal then your experience may vary.

    - The mids such as voices are more present and transparent than previous generation Bose noice canceling headphones. I have listened to many very expensive headphones where the mids get lost in the mix. Not here. Bose managed to have sub-level lows and ear tickling highs while still maintaining the mids. Very great.

    - The Bose QC35 first introduced us to volume specific bass equalization. In other words, Bose increases the volume of the bass at lower levels so that the it could be properly heard when it normally would not be present enough. The Bose 700 does the same! So great to hear the full frequency spectrum even when playing music at very low volumes.

    - Unfortunately, to my ear Bose decreases the bass at higher volumes - like over 80%. I would rather have this than to have distorted bass yet the balance is thus off at these higher volumes. Thankfully I never listen this loud.

    - The sound of my own voice during phone calls sounds more natural than ever. Really, this is hard to do because when wearing headphones our own voice sounds odd to us. Try plugging your ears and while you talking. It voice sounds like it is under water. It takes a lot of equalization in order to take what we hear naturally and pump in some of what the microphones are hearing on the outside and equalize it in a way so that it sounds natural. It is not perfect, but I am still in awe. I have never heard it done this well.

    - The ear cups are taller than previous Bose headphones. This gives more margin of error and a larger sweet-spot when adjusting the headband. Good thing because it is hard to get the headband back to the exact location where it was previously. I miss the “clicks” of the previous models. It made it so easy to count the “clicks” to place the headband exactly where it was proven comfortable.

    - At first I was annoyed by the physical buttons. They seemed too large and too openly placed in that I accidentally pressed them when just taking the headphones on and off. Now, they do not bother me at all. Muscle memory has me avoiding accidental presses. In fact, the buttons (both physical and touch) have grown on me. I appreciate how they disappear into the sleek design.

    - The design to me looks very fantastic. So sleek with the steal headband with very soft silicones and leatherettes. To my eye, my QC 15 look dated and the QC 35 series now look like a tank.

    - One final little detail. I love that the weight balance of the headphones allows the ear cups to automatically lay flat when I hold the headband. Makes it so easy to place the 700’s back into their case (see photo).

    As you can tell, I have been obsessing over these headphones. Most of these details I have shared may go unnoticed by the average consumer. Yet, I can’t help to think that most anyone will appreciate the sum total of the parts. Most will probably acknowledge that the Bose NC 700 just sound good, feel good and work well. Now, to my fellow arm-chair audiophiles - consider that these Bose Noise Canceling 700 headphones are an all-in-one product. Bose has nicely paired their own custom drivers with their own DAC (assuming it is a proprietary DAC in there) and also an amplifier. All the while simultaneously pumping in sound that cancels out the ambient noise. Quite a feat! Of course, you can get better sounding headphones elsewhere but you will also need a great dedicated DAC and then an amplifier. All the while, you probably still will be settling for a headphone that is much less comfortable. And, you might constantly be experiencing hoping to pair the right DAC with the right cans and amplifier. When I look at it this way, the Bose 700 are worth the money and do have a place in my collection.

    My favorite headphones!

    I am thoroughly impressed so far.

    Packaging is simplistic and straight to the point with two peel back tabs that let you inside. From there, you will see the NCH 700's case which was smaller than I thought because they don't fold up like the QC35II's. The case fits in my work bag just fine. However, I do have say it's not as small overall as the QC35II's case. The NCH 700 case has a little magnetic flap inside that stores the audio and USB-C cable. No airplane adapter. Thank you Bose for going USB-C with the NCH 700's. What's left is manuals and warranty cards.

    The feel of the NCH 700's is nice. It's a streamlined design that grew on me and looks very modern. Weight is slightly more than the QC35II's. Build quality is significantly superior with more metals being used and most importantly, the comfort is similar. I would maybe give the slight edge to the QC35II in comfort due to the lower weight, but the NCH 700's is still a very comfortable headphone. The headband adjustment is smooth and should accommodate a wide variety of head sizes just fine. Ear-cup openings is similar to the QC35II with the left and right labels inside the ear cups for easy notation on how to put the headphones on.

    Controls are great and I can say the touch controls are very responsive and intuitive. Swipe up for volume increase. Swipe down for volume decrease. Swipe forward for the next track. Swipe backward for the previous track. Double tap to play and pause. Tap once to accept and incoming call. Tap and hold to reject the call. Tap and hold to go to a shortcut predefined in the app. The current shortcut available was to have the voice prompt alert you of the current battery life in which she tells you the estimated time until the battery is dead. There's 3 dedicated buttons on the NCH 700's. The two on the right is responsible for Power on/Bluetooth pairing and voice assistance/mute mic. The one on the left is to cycle between the 3 preset noice cancelling modes defined with the app. The right earpiece houses the USB-C port and the left earpiece houses the audio input port.

    The app provides a lot of functionality control. You can on the fly scroll though the noise cancelling/ambient modes from 0-10. 0 being like having no headphones on at all and 10 being in your own little acoustical chamber. You can launch Bose AR apps and experience augmented reality with he NCH 700's. Pretty cool. You can select the sources that are connected and add a new source or remove an existing source. The NCH 700 can connect to up to 2 devices at once. You can set your voice assistant between Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa. You can set how much of your voice is heard during phone calls or voice assistant interaction. If you're familiar with the QC35II's Bose Connect app, it's pretty much similar settings you can control.

    Sound on the NCH 700's is clean, open and balanced. No frequency really stands out so you get an accurate representation of your music. I would say they sound similar to the QC35II but with a tighter bass. The Sony WH1000Xm3 has this false stigma that they sound superior to the QC35II but that's because the Sony's accentuate the bass frequencies which to the untrained ear is more exciting and pleasing. This is not a better sound, it's a different sound that is not accurate to the source material. The Bose sounds more accurate, more like being in the studio. A flat sound will not sound exciting to everyone especially those with untrained ears. Sound is subjective overall so you can't go wrong with what you enjoy listening to. I really enjoy the NCH 700's sound. It's a smooth and clear sound that plays well with all genres. If you want a lot of bass, look elsewhere towards the Sony's.

    Noise cancelling is insanely good on the NCH 700's. Probably the best I've experience, but honestly, the Sony WH1000Xm3 set the bar so high in terms of noise cancellation that the NCH 700 doesn't really wow me. I think they are about as equally good, but the NCH 700 takes the cake because I don't get those distortion artifacts when the ANC pressure within the ear cups is disrupted from sudden vibrations to the headphones that plagues the Sony WH1000XM3. For example this is caused by being on a bus while on a bumpy road or running with your headphones on. The ambient mode is very natural feeling on the NCH 700 and it's great being able to have awareness while listening to audio in situations where you don't want to blocked completely from the world. Wish it had the Sony's right hand palm over the ear cup feature where it seamlessly kicks in ambient sound and lowers the music volume so you can quickly hear someone or something and then once your hand leaves the right ear cup, everything reverts back to normal.

    The mains reason the new NCH 700's are the new ANC headphone kings is the voice mic quality on calls and interacting with your voice assistant. It's amazing how clear your voice is projected onto the other line while using the NCH 700. These are killer for conference calls even if you dare take them in the middle of Times Square, NYC.

    Overall, the NCH 700 is a welcome evolution to the Bose headphone line up and I'm sure these will win the hearts of many. Highly recommended!

    Music for your world

    Bose 700 headphones arrived today; the headset system clearly spoke First Class. Upon opening the product box found a carrying case for the Bose 700’s that is both nicely designed and quite suitable for storing or travelling with the headphones.

    The 700’s are both very comfortable wearing and the tactile sensation to the touch in your hand and upon your head is far removed from any headsets that I have previously reviewed/used. The texture of the ear and head cushions are the definition of comfort. The 700’s rest lightly on your head and are basically not noticeable when you put them on, after a few minutes you barely notice you are wearing the headset.

    To setup the 700’s you download the Bose Music app and follow the instructions. Bose Music app will setup popular streaming music services automatically, cool. One item that caught my eye is your current music selection is displayed on app. The extra attention to detail app programming shines through.

    First experience with noise cancellation tech, in a word, Wow. Turned on some James Taylor mid-range volume, put the headset on and at first did not realize that I could not hear an A/C unit just twenty feet from me. Only when I took the headphones off did hit me that all the sounds in the room had “magically” disappeared. You can program three settings from complete noise cancellation to mid and no cancellation, very nice.

    Music is perfectly clear including the most subtle audio with extraordinary spatial environment, each instrument/vocal comes through stunningly. Fact is the 700’s are the best headphones at music reproduction that I have experienced. From a wide range of genres going back to the 60’s through modern and Rock to Phantom of the Opera it was musical bliss.

    Fun Stuff:

    - Controls are well placed and the Touch Surface Controls for volume and track selection are spot on.

    - Battery life should easily deliver twenty hours of fun

    - Conversation mode

    - Built in Alexa - Simple easy setup – Great Feature

    - Mobile call management

    “Bose Headphones 700 feature an unrivaled four-microphone system that picks up and isolates your voice while cancelling the noise around you. You’ll hear and be heard like never before — even in noisy environments.” Good stuff.

    Typically, not a big headphone enthusiast, I have now been converted with the Bose 700 headphones. Bose has covered all the bases in their new headset.

    The 700’s speak class, performance and functionality clearly.

    Great features and convenience but lacks detail

    Design/build: The design is polarizing with a minimalist and modern look. The earcups are plastic with synthetic leather earpads. Headband is steel with silicone padding and silicone covering the top. Some minor marring/scratches do occur at the adjustment point of the headband and earcups.

    Comfort: The padding on the earcups and headband provide ample cushioning without getting too hot. The clamping force on the headband is stronger. You will also notice the added weight compared to the QC35II.

    ANC: I find that the ANC is really good but I don't find it any better the WH-1000XM3 or the QC35II. I do like that you adjust the ANC level from 0-10 (hear through-max). I also did not observe white noise or cabin pressure. ANC performance did well in windy environments.

    Sound: It sounds the same as the QC35II. The sound is clear but lacks detail, dynamic range is reduced as you increase volume, soundstage lacks depth. There is a delay between the video and sound, but not too noticeable. Headphone use SBC and AAC audio codecs, no Hi-res codecs such as LDAC or APTX HD

    Controls: I do like that they separated the ANC and assistant buttons. Touch controls on right earcup work well however I feel that the touch area is too small and that the headband interferes with its function.

    Mic/calls: Great improvement in the sound quality. One of the best headphones for making calls.

    Connection: No Bluetooth issues when connected with PC and Android phone. Did not observe stutters while playing music or video. You can connect two devices at the same time.

    App: New Bose app for controlling ANC levels, updating firmware or as a controller for your media. Currently you cannot control your EQ with app. You do need a Bose account to utilize.

    Recommendation: Overall the headphones provide great features and convenience. It works well as an ANC headphones and is excellent for making calls. If you are looking for something with better sound, it's not there. At $400, I cannot recommend these when there are other competing headphones that provide the same or better performance at a lower price.

    Buttery soft headband....

    I was torn between these headphones and Sony’s latest but ended up sticking with Bose. These are definitely an improvement on the Quiet Comfort 35 II. The headband is really soft and I like the way the ear cups attach. I miss that they don’t bend inward for smaller storing but that hinge proved a problem for me. The controls will take some getting used to for me but I like how easy it is to change the volume and track. The fact that they have a magnetic closure for the cord compartment of the case is a big plus and improvement.

    I bought these when they were on sale for $300 which was a great deal.

    Excellent

    Bose - Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

    Included- 20" USB-C to USB-A charging cable, 42' audio only cable, noise cancelling headphones, owner manual, and protective case.

    I have owned a few pairs of Bose headphones, but these are my first noice cancelling headphones. I was so excited for these, knowing what Bose offers.

    Packaging- the box that the headphones came in had a seal on both sides that are supposed to easily tear so the box will open. However, one of the sides didn't work so well and it took a chunk of box out of it. It's not a huge deal, but obviously I would have liked the box to not look janky. Inside, is a nice slim case that zips open and closed with a cloth interior. It holds the headphones and the cables neatly. It's great for storage and travel. That way they won't get damaged or dusty.

    Design- the design is sleek and attractive. I like that they are not gigantic and bulky, which noice cancelling headphones can be. The headband is not wide, only 1" at it's widest point. The size adjusts by sliding the ear cups up and down the headband instead of have another joint to extend or contract. The ear cups don't fold, they turn or pivot flat. It keeps the integrity of the headband better this way. The ear cups and the headband are very comfortable for shorter periods of time. I don't think I'd want to wear any pair all day long.

    I understand nowadays every product has an app to go with it. I also am slightly annoyed that it's required instead of an optional feature. You will have to download the free Bose Music app to proceed. You can customize a name or use a preset option for your headphones. It was easy to pair them to my phones. The app will display your battery life and what song you are playing. The app will not let you customize the sounds on the app. That is something that needs to be added. I expect that from this product and brand. I also wish Bose would consolidate their music apps. I have to have a separate app for their soundbars that I own.

    Controls- Everything is by touch with taps or swipes or a simple touch of a button. It take a little bit of time getting used to but probably will require more If you are left handed since the controls are on the right cup only. I don't use Alexa or Siri too often but I find that Alexa understands me better.

    Sound- I think the sound quality is excellent. I am not disappointed in the 700's at all. I am not a music snob though. I mainly listen to top 40 and it's great for me. The noise cancelling works great too. I love that there are different levels - 0-10. You can also make 3 different favorite settings if you have certain specific needs or situations. Anything to tailor it to your experience is great.

    I'm so glad I have these. I do recommend these if you like Bose, need a wireless noise canceling pair and can afford them.

    Absolutely!

    My very first pair of noise canceling headphones were a Bose that I purchased 7 years ago. I still own and use that pair of Bose QC 15 headphones. Through the years, I have always considered upgrading but have never had a good enough reason to. Mainly because Bose is so consistently good with their headphones that all the newer models have been very similar in sound, comfort and function as my old faithful pair of QC’s. Well, I now find myself with a set of the new Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 and I once again am impressed of how good previous versions of Bose headphones hold up even today. That said, the 700 do feel, look and sound incrementally better to me. Allow me to geek out over the details a bit...

    - The Bose 700 have better passive noise isolation. The headphones block more ambient noise passively by just the cup and pad materials. The trade-off is that the headphones seem to be just ever so slightly more warm to wear than the previous QC15, 25 and 35 models.

    - The active noise cancelation is slightly better also. Perhaps not better but different. The 700 tend to cancel out a few decibels less of the lowest sounds (airplane cabin noise) but then block more than before of the mid to high frequencies (busy office or coffee shop). Personally, I do not fly much so I prefer the noise canceling prowess of the Bose NC 700.

    - The sound signature remains true to Bose’ custom but is ultimately better. The 700 seem to have higher impedance drivers. This means that it takes more electricity to move the electromagnet that moves the drivers which move air creating sound frequencies. Higher impedance drivers means a stronger bass that is more controlled and tight. The trade off to he high impedance speakers which take more energy to drive is twofold: 1) Listening to the headphones passively through the wire sounds significantly worse. These drivers need more amplification than the average 3.5 mm headphone jack provides. 2) Wireless battery life still remains near 20 hours. Personally, I prefer the slightly better sound over more battery life or better sounding passive mode.

    - The 700 have slightly better imaging. Closed back headphones do not do imaging as well as their open back cousins. The soundstage is still within my head but the instrument separation is better than previous Bose. So great to imagine an actual stage in a performance theatre and to be able to hear exactly where each orchestra member is sitting. It just makes music that much more immersive.

    - The highs are better! I read some reviews that say the sound of the higher frequencies such as symbols is inconsistent depending on how the headphones are seated on your ear and how good of a seal there is. I understand this, but to me the highs sound absolutely fantastic. They are not rolled off. A symbol finishes its ring until the very last vibration. There is also no harshness nor brittleness ever at higher volumes. The highs are very very nicely done for a noise canceling headphone. Now, if you wear glasses and do not have as good of a seal then your experience may vary.

    - The mids such as voices are more present and transparent than previous generation Bose noice canceling headphones. I have listened to many very expensive headphones where the mids get lost in the mix. Not here. Bose managed to have sub-level lows and ear tickling highs while still maintaining the mids. Very great.

    - The Bose QC35 first introduced us to volume specific bass equalization. In other words, Bose increases the volume of the bass at lower levels so that the it could be properly heard when it normally would not be present enough. The Bose 700 does the same! So great to hear the full frequency spectrum even when playing music at very low volumes.

    - Unfortunately, to my ear Bose decreases the bass at higher volumes - like over 80%. I would rather have this than to have distorted bass yet the balance is thus off at these higher volumes. Thankfully I never listen this loud.

    - The sound of my own voice during phone calls sounds more natural than ever. Really, this is hard to do because when wearing headphones our own voice sounds odd to us. Try plugging your ears and while you talking. It voice sounds like it is under water. It takes a lot of equalization in order to take what we hear naturally and pump in some of what the microphones are hearing on the outside and equalize it in a way so that it sounds natural. It is not perfect, but I am still in awe. I have never heard it done this well.

    - The ear cups are taller than previous Bose headphones. This gives more margin of error and a larger sweet-spot when adjusting the headband. Good thing because it is hard to get the headband back to the exact location where it was previously. I miss the “clicks” of the previous models. It made it so easy to count the “clicks” to place the headband exactly where it was proven comfortable.

    - At first I was annoyed by the physical buttons. They seemed too large and too openly placed in that I accidentally pressed them when just taking the headphones on and off. Now, they do not bother me at all. Muscle memory has me avoiding accidental presses. In fact, the buttons (both physical and touch) have grown on me. I appreciate how they disappear into the sleek design.

    - The design to me looks very fantastic. So sleek with the steal headband with very soft silicones and leatherettes. To my eye, my QC 15 look dated and the QC 35 series now look like a tank.

    - One final little detail. I love that the weight balance of the headphones allows the ear cups to automatically lay flat when I hold the headband. Makes it so easy to place the 700’s back into their case (see photo).

    As you can tell, I have been obsessing over these headphones. Most of these details I have shared may go unnoticed by the average consumer. Yet, I can’t help to think that most anyone will appreciate the sum total of the parts. Most will probably acknowledge that the Bose NC 700 just sound good, feel good and work well. Now, to my fellow arm-chair audiophiles - consider that these Bose Noise Canceling 700 headphones are an all-in-one product. Bose has nicely paired their own custom drivers with their own DAC (assuming it is a proprietary DAC in there) and also an amplifier.

    Great

    So I came from turtle beach’s which was great I loved them for my Xbox not for my pc. These are great it has a control where you can pick if you want to hear the game or your chat more. It also has a led ring around each headset so that’s dope. A little on the heavy side if your use to smaller headset but over all it’s a go

    Overpriced for the quality, Not durable as claimed

    I've been looking for a durable headset with good sound quality that I could use for my playstation. And let me tell you, the Steel Series Arctis 5 is NOT that headset. Very mediocre sound quality, not worthit for a $90 headset. It's still wired even though the packaging claims it's misleading "bluetooth" features. Selling a wired headset at anything over $60 is a joke in my opinion. Finally my biggest issue, the durability. What led me to buy this product in the first place. Most of my headsets in the past have mic or audio quality that deteriorates and the physical toughness of most gaming headsets, or lack there of has made me search for a TOUGH headset. The arctis 3 claims to be durable and seems so out of the packaging. But less than a month after my purchase, the left ear broke off. After investigating where it broke, I discovered the two ear cups are attached to the main headband with a piece of 3-4mm wide plastic. I have no idea how such poor engineering took place, but this "durable" headset has the strength of a #2 pencil.

    Good sound

    Sound is great, nice bass, and i wasnt really expecting it to light up and change color on the ear covers. The headband is also pretty comfortable and adjustable. However, the mic light can shine in your eyes, the light turns off when youre muted. So if you have a side conversation while streaming, its at least a good visual reminder that youre not muted.

    Mic can slide in and out of headset (giggity)

    RGB and equalizer are addressable in app.

    Works on Xbox and PS4 or anything with 3.5mm aux but only bad thing: RGB no-worky unless used on PC (which you plug headset into via USB)

    Knob can easily adjust volume of game or chat. Turn knob to chat to hear people better / turn knob to other side to shut-up everyone else and focus on game.

    Cons:

    Is not fireproof - don't roast marshmallows with it.

    RGB might or might not increase FPS - Probably not but you should still get every component and peripheral you possibly can get that has RGB!

    ( o_O) Would you buy this? I'd buy this...

    GREAT BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

    When I first got these, I thought they seemed too quiet. After downloading the EQ software and making some adjustments, I found it super easy, and I’m super happy with the product. This is the BEST headset on the market for an affordable price. The only “bad” thing about these is that they don’t have as much bass as my old Razer Nari essentials. If I could give them 6/5 stars, I would.

    Great product ruined by poor integration and app.

    These Nanoleaf Shapes (Hexagons) are a fabulous addition to a room, and when working, they really add a nice dimension and ambiance to your space.

    SETTING UP THE LIGHTS:

    I have over 70 smart devices on my network, so am no stranger to setting up connected smart products. The integration of these Nanoleaf Shapes had me almost pulling my hair out.

    To start with, the QR and Home Kit icons that are engraved into the back of the control panel would not talk to the app. Whenever I scanned them, the auto scan function would highlight the edge of the control panel, or a cut out on the back, but NEVER affix itself to either of the codes on the back. I then resorted to the printed card inside the box. Finally, the Home Kit code was recognized, it showed that I was trying to connect a light, so I proceeded. Well, I was repeatedly given a message that the light was unreachable. So, troubleshooting online, if you keep attempting, you are given an option to input the code that is above the Home Kit icon. I repeatedly entered that code, and was told that the code was invalid for my product. After more online research, I found out that I am not isolated in my issue and should contact Nanoleaf. I wasn't going to be defeated, so I continued to try. Doing a scan on my wifi network, I could see the product, (Shapes with a 4 digit code), so I looked at connecting via AP, instead of scanning the QR/Home Kit code. In doing so, it showed that I was connected to the light, but then the Nanoleaf app was showing the light as Unresponsive. I reset the Nanoleaf Hexagon several times, to no avail. I persevered some more, I had been troubleshooting for almost 2 hours and getting very irate. Well, finally, the product took down my network, and stripped over 50% of my smart devices from my network. A call to AT&T and over an hour of troubleshooting later, I had to do a hard reset on my router. My smart products came back online, so I gave the Nanoleaf another chance.

    Again, more issues with connection, and then finally, by using the Home Kit app, and not the Nanoleaf app, I was able to get the lights connected, and responsive.

    ENJOYING THE LIGHTS:

    Now that I was able to access the lights, and control them in Home Kit, I opened up the Nanoleaf app, and finally the lights showed up as responsive in there too. I was able to play around with the lights.

    The product itself is very easy to clip together, power up and get lit up (once the above issues were resolved). Please be aware that when you plug in the panels and start to clip them in, keep your hands away from the connection terminals. You can feel a small shock from them if you come into contact with them.

    Everything you need to connect the lights and attach them to the wall is included in the kit, but if you want to make a design wrap around a wall, you need to purchase separate flexible cables/connectors.

    As soon as you clip the lights into the connectors, they light up. They are touch sensitive and react to touching, dragging your finger over them, or tapping them. They offer 16+ million colors and a white light range of 1200K-6500K by pressing the - and + button at the same time. Each press changes the light output. We've been most impressed by the music visualizer (or even just your voice makes them react). My son loves this feature and keep shouting at the wall! Constantly asking Alexa to play different songs to see how they react. And talking of Alexa, there is a Nanoleaf skill available, which I have connected and enabled so that the Shape lights are voice activated. I can just say 'Alexa, turn on Shapes' and she'll turn them on and off as requested.

    They also have 'Layout Detect' which makes sure that the lighting flows smoothly between each panel, and doesn't jump around to different light panels when using preprogrammed lighting scenes. One power supply can power up to 21 panels, and one control panel can control up to 500 panels, so the lighting possibilities are only limited by your creativity.

    I chose to mount the Shapes to the wall using 3M Command strips and not the included adhesive, and I'm glad I did. I read online (while researching the connectivity issues) that the adhesive supplied is really strong. When I initially mounted the lights, I had them too high for my son, and had to reposition them. Using the Command strips made that nice and easy.

    The lights work with Apple Home Kit, Google Assistant, Alexa, IFTTT and Smart Things.

    I've used the Home Kit app to get them connected, the Nanoleaf app to control settings and Alexa to voice control them.

    I'm pleased with the lights, their functionality, their brightness and their versatility, now that they are connected, but that initial experience with the product really was terrible, especially when I was so excited to receive them and set them up.

    Hopefully my experience with the set up of the lights was somewhat of a rare occurrence. Otherwise, they really are a nice product!

    Freaking Awesome

    They are amazing! I didn’t think I’d fall in love with these lights as much as I did. I had doubts about paying that much for led lights but I can honestly say it was worth it!

    the best thing you can buy for your space

    These lights are one of the best purchases I've ever made. They can instantly transform the environment and are a game changer during covid times, especially. I can turn my living room into a dance club, cozy cocktail lounge, etc. by messing with the settings. Setting the colors to music is fun too. It really feels like these lights are getting me through the covid, pacific NW gloomy winter.

    Three friends have bought these after seeing them at my place. The fact that they function as lighting, an art piece, and a magical transportation machine makes them a steal for the price. For $200 or less, you can feel like you're somewhere else, impress your friends, and tie an environment together. I haven't played around too much with the touch component of these lights but imagine kids would get a kick out of them.

    Best Lights for your Bedroom!

    These Nanoleafs are literally the best part about my room. They are super versatile in which you can use them as both reading and mood lighting. You can change the lights into so many different colors and patterns and you can even make them music sync! It was also super easy to set up using the app as well as mounting them to the wall. I get so many compliments whenever I have guests over.

    The product is very nice but I was not happy with the damage it did to my wall. If you want to change the placement it basically destroys the wall and also doesn’t stick as well once you remove it. No room for error. Otherwise very cool product.

    It doesn’t get better than this!

    Firstly, I have the Nvidia Shield TV 2017 version and absolutely love it. I’m not much of a gamer and use it primarily for daily streaming apps, Plex and Third Party apps. It was frustrating that Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos were unavailable on streaming apps.

    I now feel that Nvidia Shield has delivered the perfect all in one streaming device for me. AI upscaling works really well on non 4K content (especially on YouTube and Netflix content), Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Tegra X1+ chip (definitely improves the speed of the device), SD slot for expandable storage.

    Just like any tech, there’s always room for a little improvement. This is what’s still lacking, but really is so insignificant to me right now...

    •Doesn’t do HDR for YouTube

    •No HDR10+

    •No Wi-Fi 6

    •No HDMI 2.1

    One more thing for those that buy this device for third party apps. You will notice that the app “Downloader” is no longer in the google play store. No worries...just download “Puffin Browser”. Search for www.google.com in the “Search or type URL”. Once that opens up, just search for Downloader and download from there. I saw another reviewer who said Puffin didn’t work, but he or she is wrong because it worked perfectly for me getting Downloader.

    Big improvement on the remote.

    I have the 2019 pro version as well. The Nvidia Shield TV devices are awesome. The new remote is a big improvement but there is still room to grow. My favorite remote is still the Samsung One remote. Sometimes less is more with the buttons Nvidia. A home icon guess a long way for guests in our house that are not well versed with Android's dot home button.

    This device is great for streaming and for our YouTube TV experience as we cut the cord years ago. The updated UI is great but I wish it had a My Library section for our Google Movies and TV shows like it does on Google TV.

    For gaming, the Nvidia Shield devices are stellar. Stadia is awesome, works with the Stadia controller and Xbox controllers. Nvidia GeForce Now is good, not great but good. Steam Link works flawlessly. For all three of these services you need a great, hard wired internet connection.

    I hope the updates and innovation keeps coming from Nvidia with their Shield devices.

    If it’s not a shield you’re wasting your money

    I also have the previous 2 versions of the Shield and have always been pleased with them. This one is by far the best and, to me, a great upgrade from the 2017 Shield. It is considerably faster than before, searching and responding almost instantly with a fast internet connection. Even using Wi-Fi, it tested at over 50 MBPS from a 400 MBPS wired Comcast connection. The 4K upgrading works great and on an LG OLED TV the picture quality is outstanding using the medium sharpness setting. The new remote is a huge improvement over the original and even a lot better than the after market one I had purchased to replace the goofy OEM remote on the previous version. The initial installation is the best I have ever seen. It pretty much set itself up by just entering the phone # on my Google account. I like the new form factor and just let it hang behind the Television completely out of sight. The voice command seems faster and more accurate than previously. I am not sure if there is a limit to the size micro SD car it supports, its not mentioned in the Microscopic little guide provided or on the Nvidia website. It does work with a 256 GB card, that was the largest I had available.

    Nice Speakers !

    I recently purchased these speakers for my new Mac mini set-up. It was an easy install and the Mac detected them right away. The Bluetooth feature was a bonus as my Mac Mini has only one AUX port and I'm currently using them for my headset/mic set-up. A very nice full sound for their size and keeping in mind they are only for my desk top. I use them for listening to my music while I work as well as streaming movies. I also like LED light features. Overall, a very good value for their price point ! I definitely recommend.

    Great Speakers!

    Ok, so starting off I just needed a set of speakers and a was torn between these and these and the Logitech Z200 speakers. The only thing that pushed me to these speakers is the Bluetooth capability.

    Now, having set them up and tested the sound, I have to say that these speakers are awesome! The sound is super clear and the bluetooth was easy to set up.

    For anyone wondering, the power cable is a USB cable to USB adapter plug, however, if you have a desktop you shouldn't have a problem running the speakers off of the desktop USB port instead of a wall plug.

    TLDR; These speakers are great for the price, have a really easy setup, and look sick.

    Good sounding speakers for a good price.

    These little speakers have good sound for the price. The lights are cool, but it's nice to be able to turn them off at night. They don't take up much space either. The front is pretty shiny which can be a bit distracting if it is reflecting your mouse. Easily connected to my pc and phone's bluetooth.
