Pros: I needed one of these for my work vehicle since the company doesn't pay to even have a CD player put in the car. This prod-cast great stereo sound (no more mono sound) over all the other electronics i have int he vehicle (Radar, computer, wireless mic, and radio) The you throw in the Bluetooth and how easy it pairs with your phone. This should be the product of the year it is that great. And I'm a tech guy. It has made driving in my work vehilce that much better.
Cons: No that i can think of at all. Well maybe why didn't i find this product a year ago. I wasted tons of money on bad FM transmitter and was so mad every time i did, until now.
Overall Review: If you need a FM transmitter buy this one. Believe me i've tried them all from the $120.00 models to the $10.00 ones. This is the best one for sound quailty and enjoyment. If you need a Bluetooth then this is the same.
Pros: I bought this TV because it was on sale ans cheap. I needed a flat screen for one of the bedrooms. And this looks and sounds good enough to replace my living room TV which I paid a $1,000.00 more for. I'm very happy with this TV. I gave up on them a couple years ago. Sony maybe back on my radar for tech items.
Cons: The menu kind of reminds me on PS3 which isn't bad but seems outdated.
Overall Review: If you need a great TV for under $600.00 this is the best to get. It has a better picture and sound then my 55" Samsung smart TV which i paid a lot for.
Pros: I love Corsair's power supplies. I had the 700 watts one and it died after two years of use. I called Corsair and they sent a brand new one. So for now on i buy Corsair's power supplies. I have bought three of these for other systems and they work great and never fail.
Cons: Nothing beside the price.
Overall Review: If your building a system which you want to last more than a year, buy Corsair. If your building a system for someone use this and they never call you to fix it.
Pros: This case is big and is made well. I have owned a lot of cases and have worked on a lot. This one is great for the price. Hardware is good
Cons: Cheap fans
Pros: OK so I had to use windows 7 to build my Raid but it worked. My BIOS won't let me run one SSD drive and 5 HDD stacked in a RAID. But windows will. I have a ASUS saber-tooth running an i7-860 on 8 Gbs of ram. Any one know of a way to make the BIOS run a raid setup and a boot drive off of the BIOS.
Cons: 3TB drive =5.45TB wow I lost half TB. SLOW
Overall Review: I didn't need speed so them being slow is ok for me. If i used or was able to use the BIOS RAID the speed would increase. I don't think anyone use use these drives as their main boot drive.
Pros: I love em. The price was right. My girlfriend hates them. Her cats hate them. My movies, games and songs love em. What a difference over the stock Z-2300. The sound guilty is way better then the $80.00 dollar price tag. I love Polk Audio. Everything they makes sound great and last a long time.
Cons: I didn't buy a set to replace my rear speakers, in my main surrounds setup.
Overall Review: I stole this idea from a youtube.com video. I hook my 30s to my Loitech Z2300. I just bought a RCA ends and put them on the end of my speaker wire and bam.
Pros: So I bought this thinking I could save all my ripped movies. Well I was wrong. I have a fast setup 12 gig ram 60gb SSD drive plus a 1.5 tb hdd. I7-860 cpu. My boot time was super fast until I put their sata card in. My computer tries to boot off of the sata card and takes forever(over a minute).
Cons: I can't get raid to work. I've installed 4 drives and formatted all of them. I tried to run raid on all of them and they can't find the drives. I tried each drive by themselves and the drives work. What a joke a waste of money.Sans Digital tech support never got back to me. I never got a real person on the phone.
Overall Review: I have set up raid before and it was easy. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. But since Sans Digital tech support sucks and the manual they sent with their products sucks, I'll never know. So basically if building computer is not something you have a degree in don't waste your time. Oh I have built over 20 rigs in my life even servers, water cooled unit and overclocked ones so it not like i don't know my way around a computer.
Pros: This is my first wall mount so I don't have something to compare it to. I mounted a 32 Samsung LCD TV to it and it works great. The built in level helps out plus they give you every type of mounting screws you could ever need.
Cons: I wish the back plate was longer. I live in a old house and where I wanted to mount the TV, the studs were not 16 on center. This isn't SIIG problem but it would have been nicer to have it made for 24 in on center.
Overall Review: Thick metal, feel like it made very well.
Pros: Price got them on sale from Newegg. The size not to big not to small. They sound great. I had to reset my radio/amp to get the sound out of em. But they handle great.
Overall Review: I've always wanted tower speakers but never wanted to pay the money. Polk and Newegg made it happen.
Pros: So this power supply worked great for 11 months. It powered 3 hard drives and a SSD drive. Plus my water cooling pump, SLI, two Blue-ray drives and a four-core CPU with HT that was over clocked. It ran 24/7. Corsair's 7 year warranty and they stand behind their product. I bought Corsair because I was sick of buying bad power supplies and I made the right choice.
Cons: It stopped working after 11 months. I think it was a storm that blow the power supply.
Overall Review: I called Corsair and got a real person within 1 min and he spoke clean English. I sent the power supply back and they sent a brand new one within a week (during X-MAS). Great company great power supply.
Pros: The case is well made. If your buying this case because you plan on putting water in it you made the right choice. You could put any size water system in it without any concern. There is a lot of room behind the motherboard tray to hide wires. The finish is well made, I dropped a heavy piece of metal on it and no scratch. (Thank g*d my heart stopped for a min)The case is huge, it wont fit under my desk, its oo to big to fit on top. The size is unlike any other case I've owned. The 230mm fans are great, they move a ton of air with little noise.
Cons: The edges of the sheet metal are sharp I cut my finger trying to move the power supply panel. That being said the power supply panel is the only cheap feeling piece of this case. The top grill is kind of ugly, but im a modder so it not a big deal. The bottom plate rattles alittle because there are some many holes for the fans. I put a piece of sound dampening on the bottle and that solved the problem.
Overall Review: I have built over 50 computers with different case. I was stuck on Silverstone and Lanli, but i think CoolerMaster has changed my mind.
Cons: why is it that thermaltke copys (or trys to copy) every thing that every one makes. for the money you might as well get the real thing. Thermatke is a ripe and always has been don't buy its a big ripe off
