This review is from: Cyber Acoustics CA3001RB 8 Watts 2.1 Speakers
Pros: Unobtrusive little speakers
Frequency response has no major midrange resonance (which often sounds like the speakers are in a cardboard box)
Small woofer box gives reasonable bass for size/cost
Cons: Annoying blue LED + electrical tape = fixed!
Woofer amplifier clips at relatively low volume (one reviewer thought the woofer was rattling, but he's hearing the amplifier clipping)
Woofer box produces midrange as well as bass
Other Thoughts: These are excellent speakers if used for the right purpose.
I am using these with a modern thin LED TV which has terrible speakers. These speakers make an excellent fix at a low price. No need for yet another remote in the system for sound. Just plug these in and leave them on.
I used an audio spectrum analyzer and set up the internal EQ on the TV to get a reasonably flat response.
The woofer box must be placed at center of system as it produces much of the low midrange as well, and those frequencies are somewhat directional.
Pros: Very fast
durable (it's in its second computer)
My desktop boots in 28 seconds
Cons: Read/write times drop to less than expected on random small file access in CrystalDiskMark, but it doesn't seem to be reflected in day-to-day use.
This is just fast!
Other Thoughts: I got this for a boot drive on my Compaq CQ50 laptop and it was not impressive.
Works great in my new desktop; all that was due to the laptop.

Pros: Great Price
Running POE on about 25 foot Cat5e cable without issues
Very flexible operation. What do you want it to do? This thing will do it.
Cons: Complex to set up - mostly due to there being so many options.
Otherwise, it just works.
Other Thoughts: I am using this with an outdoor Yagi antenna.
I can use this over a large area of our yard and have good strong signal coverage.
