My wife bought me this last year for $139. It is a FANTASTIC wireless headset and I recommend it to anyone on the fence of buying it. You can't go wrong with it, especially at this price!
They're nice. I own a pair. But ever since Logitech unified their drivers, the G930 has one fatal flaw: Every few minutes, it'll drop connection with the PC for a few seconds. Sometimes it'll happen back-to-back and you'll be without sound for a few minutes.
This is a deal-breaker for me because it makes using various voice chat impossible, and ruins games (Black Ops 2, for example. I'll be playing, and suddenly...silence. Sound is critical in a game like that).
Many, many people have this problem. Logitech tries to blame interference, and then suggests you RMA the unit (at your cost). People on their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th G930 still have the problem.
My honest opinion? Save your money.
I've ordered a replacement battery pack from Logitech, hoping that replacing the batteries will fix the problem. If it doesn't, I'll be buying a different gaming headset.
I didn't just jump to this conclusion. I've had these for just over a year. I've tried everything, and researched the issue to death. It's pervasive, it's pernicious, and it seems to be endemic to the G930 (and unfortunately, the G35 -- the wired version of the G930 -- has a lot of problems as well that also sprang up around the time Logitech unified their drivers. Sadly, going back to an older, pre-unified driver doesn't work. Probably did something to the firmware on the headset when the initial upgrade happened).
made this post by mistake. Hm. We can't delete posts any more?
lol i got an email with your original message.
I ended up ordering the steel series v2. with overnight shipping. Why overnight shipping you ask.. well within the past 20 minutes, i just broke my headset... My woman caused me to rage and the cable was wrapped around the arm on my computer chair, i rolled away from my desk and the 3.5 male plug broke off in the port on my computer....
All because she went in her history on her labtop last night and saw me eyeballing the g930's and she purchased them at 120 off amazon and then txted me not to buy a headset.
I had that cheapo headset for 3 years....
