Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers

3 out of 5 eggs Auto Mute Sucks! 05/12/2015

This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers

Pros: High quality, nice piano black finish.

Cons: This Auto Mute is killing me. Any time I watch a video it seems like I always have to restart it so the speakers can turn on. So aggravating. As for Facebook or email notifications, forget it, speakers will be off. Tried to work this issue out with the manufacture to no avail.

Other Thoughts: If you like this model, buy the older version on the internet. I purchased a pair and am much happier.

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great drive for the price, only $55. I have this one and one purchased 3 years ago in a RAID 1 array. Faster read times than a comparable 1 GB WD Black.

Cons: I have had to RMA one of these Seagate drives in the past. Probably not be as reliable as a comparable 1GB WD Black.

Other Thoughts: Most drives have a bathtub life cycle, fail at the beginning or end but usually not in the middle. Statically an RMA drive still has a lot of life in it, if not all, since people RMA good drive since they don't know what they are doing during installs.

AMD FX-9370 Vishera 4.4GHz Socket AM3+ 220W 8-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9370FHHKWOX with Liquid Cooling Kit
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Factory Overclock. Gamming with it, seems smother than my old 1100T. Used 1100T, to upgrade Dad's PC (Gigabyte), this is why I love AMD. If Steamroller is AM3+, I will have 3 CPU upgrades on this MB. Intel PC is done with just 1 CPU update. A Scary Boo for Halloween to Intel. (Although, Main PC is an ASRock Z68 Pro/i7-3770K)

Cons: Not as fast as my old 1100T in SuperPi it replaced (single core test).

Other Thoughts: Running on my second PC, an ASRock 990FX Extreme4 (BIOS 1.80, FX-9370 not supported by OEM) with air cooling (Enzotech Extreme-X, with extra fan, both fans at max). Idles at 52C. All Cores running it hit 68C in very short test and was climbing higher fast. OCZ ZT 650W. EVGA GTX 570 Classified. For about 3 months or week after you could get one on another site. Hope this helps.
