    I just bought this mostly due to one of my coworkers having it and me falling in love with it.

    And this because I always seem to need to charge my iPhone at like the worst possible moments and its super helpful.

    Lol, yea it is an awful video but I thought I would post it any how. I work at a theatre and it is nice to have a flashlight that can be big and bright and then get small and zoom in. It can go probably about 40' up in the air when it is focused and glow the area as if it were only 10 feet away and it is small enough that you do not notice it in your pocket. Which is nice because I sometime hate carrying around my M20 warrior from Olight because it is big and can't focus but it's hella bright. But my switch or something on my m20 is going bad so I have to fix that.

    Fridge raid operation failed, abort mission, RETREAT!

    But seriously, use those in semi-wide open area, not a cluttered kitchen.

    Currently saving up money for an LCD monitor and likely PS3 and will buy them as soon as I got settled in my university at fall.

    if it's solely for PS3 the official Sony PS3 one is pretty decent with wireless and simulated surround sound

    otherwise if you want cross platform go hunt for a pair of turtlebeach or something like that

    This.

    Tried my friend's 300$ turtle beach wireless headset, it was awesome, he uses it for both his PS3 and XBOX 360.

    I can never justify paying so much for a headset.... I just regular earbuds, but then again im not much of an audiophile.

    I think they buy them more for the fake surround sound to hear footsteps more than anything else. lol.

    Although there are some headsets that actually have more than 1 speaker in their cups.

    My Sennheiser are worth $300 but I only paid half that. Actually I didnt pay it at all, my awesome girlfriend bought it for me for Xmas 2010

    That's pretty sweet. I wouldn't pay past $150 for a headset.

    Yea neither would I. I have seen some make off of Turtle Beach stuff that's called Komodo I think for like 10 bucks less and I was like are you serious? Apparently they are waaaay worse than turtle beach so spend the 10 bucks for the good stuff.

    My parent brought it for my pre-u education. Not what I expected and I'm not sure it will be comfortable or not to type a lengthy Japanese paragraph on it as I'm expecting a Thinkpad instead.
