Greatvalue@40bucks, Standard setup for wired 2.1 system
Pros: Price of course, out paces many, more expensive, 2.1 systems I have experienced. Styling is unique. Attainable volume levels will enrage room mates, family, and/or neighbors.
Cons: Styling is unique. Attainable volume levels will enrage room mates, family, and/or neighbors. Wire insulation seems inadequate; care should be taken upon setup to keep cables from being to close/touching or you may get mains hum.The kit should include harness separators other than what is on the sub. (-1 whole egg for the hassle of making my own)
Overall Review: My opinion; this is a loud speaker set-up. I have retired higher priced systems that may have slightly better sound quality at low volume only. They are now retired because of their inability to perform. As others have stated, the controller is...fickle to get set for all genres as no neutral flat index is recognizable and is of particular impact for PC applications with dedicated sound cards. The control module inadequacies are not enough to break an egg over. Conclusion; this product has my respect. It seems sound quality improves after some use, a break in period may be causation. The sub will vibrate unsecured objects. This system works!
Pros: it is actually a very cool piece of kit. I like it and is better quality than most home store plastic fixtures.
Cons: The lens was mounted crooked from manufacturing and could have been easily rectified if I cared. I don't for what I use it for.
Overall Review: I use this as an over head to an outside side gate entrance. The I.R. device kicks the light on high for 30 seconds when any warm body gets within a few feet. Super bright. Perfect for my purpose! it is not all plastic like home store fixtures and the charge lasts all night as long as you initially charge it proper per any new solar NiCd device. (put in full sun then put under fake light during dark hours for the first 36 to 72 hours, so as not to allow battery usage for a few days: allow the batteries to get an initial full charge. mount it and forget).
Works as intended and then some
Pros: Unique design for sure
Cons: None at all
Overall Review: This 2.0 system punches way above its class. I would challenge anyone to find media speakers that perform at this level in the price range, or even double, or triple the price. Plug the USB into a 3.0 / 3.1 port or power strip quick charge for increased performance. Awesome for what they are: inexpensive media speakers.
Very good build quality.
Pros: The case has the fit and finish of a much more expensive ITX. Easily maintained dust filtration system as long as good positive case pressure is considered in a build. Nice reflective interior finishes enhance any added lighting.
Cons: Of course the elephant in the room..top mounted PSU. Cable management is as others have expressed, a bit challenging and a full modular PSU recommended. A better consideration may be one of the top brand name PSU's in which custom length wire looms can be obtained from third party vendors to complete the true professional build this case deserves.
Overall Review: Really impressed with this case and will consider it a top option for my next ITX request. I am not sure about cooling efficiency as my first time using this brand was for a pretty mild system. Their website is tragically lacking content and information so this case might not be ideal for a first timer. Super awesome case for the price. Blown away in fact!
works as intended
Pros: It works well for unlocked CPU's with a mild OC in a case with high air flow. Easy to mount and the hardware is properly machined.
Cons: I like the product but...DO NOT use the pre-applied thermal paste under any condition. It will not fill the concavity of an Intel CPU and will not spread evenly over a convex AMD.
Overall Review: I give 5 eggs as it makes almost a 10C lower temp than stock CPU fan setup, under stress, with consideration. DO NOT use the supplied thermal paste or you will be writing a review with one egg, finding out about warranties on effected hardware.
