This review is from: JBL Loft 40 125-watt, 5-1/4" two-way bookshelf speakers
Pros: Treble very clear and detailed when equalized
Bass punchy and strong without subwoofer when placed near wall (especially in the corner like mine)
Well balanced sound, good freq response
Takes banana plugs
Cons: Lightweight (cheaper box materials)
Bass a bit lacking if poorly placed in room
Other Thoughts: Great speakers for music, perhaps not best for movies / TV without adding a dedicated subwoofer and center channel
I found bass to be strong when they're placed near a wall, but not quite as detailed and tight as my 8" subwoofer of course
Pros: fast (over 30ppm)
small size (for laser/scanner)
easy to setup
extra features (print from/to cloud etc.)
duplex prints (two-sided)
scanning feature (also fast)
Cons: fuzzy graphics
colors/shades other than pure black are less sharp
if you look really closely you can see the dots on edges (lower dpi)
no traditional faxing (but can do digital)
no 5ghz wifi support (2.4ghz only)
Other Thoughts: I bought this from BB, not newegg.. but I thought I should leave a review here because I saw so many useless reviews on the page about damaged upon arrival and such (just exchange it with newegg ya donuts). I haven't had issues with mine and I'm happy with the ease of wireless setup and the modern appearance in my home office.
Doesn't look like an eye sore like most printers. Quickly spits out prints within seconds. Relatively quiet, especially compared to inkjet. I have zero power surge issues when laser warms up that I've seen mentioned elsewhere.
This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G
Pros: Best for cooling and overclocking
Huge low RPM fans and heat sink (also a con)
Nearly silent operation.. even during gaming
At least 20% faster than the 770 (2GB), especially at higher res
Extremely efficient power usage
Can enable LED indicator to show GPU temp, load, or fan speed
Cons: Very large card, significantly larger than the gtx 770
Form factor with position of power connectors made it very difficult to fit in my mini-ATX case
Again, due to size of heat sink and power location, it does not sit properly in my case
It exhibits some mild coil whine while gaming, noticeable when audio is quiet (also noticeable due to the fact that my computer runs silently)
Plastic case (doesn't really matter)
Other Thoughts: Probably not a huge upgrade from the 770 but worth the $100 once I sell the 770, especially with the free witcher 3 bundle.
It's a directx 12 card, and handles advanced rendering more efficiently than the 770. much cooler and quieter while using less power.
If only it fit properly in my case.. the EVGA 770 fit perfectly in my mini case but this one is at an awkward angle due to the power cables hitting at top. I would probably exchange for a smaller card if Newegg didn't have a ridiculous 15% charge on return policy. This is mainly why it gets 4/5 eggs rather than 5 for me.. also it would be nice if it didn't have any coil whine.
