This review is from: Klipsch HD 500 5.1 High Definition Theater system
Pros: Good starter kit. Bass is impressive, even in a 400 sq ft room. Gets you going with impressive clarity, so you can start watching movies the way they were meant to be heard.
Music can range from good to lacking. Most classical is amazing. I closed my eyes and was immediately transported to a concert hall. Techno was also good. Defined highs mixed with powerful bass is what that music is all about. Rock...not so much...see cons for more info.
If you can pick this up for cheap, you will be well rewarded.
Cons: I found the system to have very powerful highs and very powerful lows, but almost completely lacking in mid-range punch. The 2.5" woofers just don't push hard enough for a lot of songs in the rock genre. To make matters worse, the sub can't handle a higher crossover frequency to offset the lack of woofer punch.
Other Thoughts: Movies and electronic (techno etc) music sound fantastic on this system. Explosions hit hard, and speech comes across crystal clear. Turn on a rock song, though, and you will be left wondering why you don't even hear notes that hit hard on your car's stock speakers.
I personally ended up getting some bookshelf speakers with 5.25" woofers for moderately cheap. Now music has the proper punch.
In summary, if you purchase this system along with some more beefy bookshelf speakers, you'll be set. You can use the 2 spare Klipsch speakers as "presence" channels, giving you a nice 7.1 setup.
Pros: Quiet, fast, large.
Cons: It's not an SSD?
Other Thoughts: I didn't know how loud my old drive was until I threw this guy in. It is quiet while accessing data and seems to perform well overall.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 108 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Red) Model DT108/8GBZ
Pros: Small, light, pretty, fast.
Cons: No USB sheath...or whatever it's called...over the male end of the port, if that matters to you.
Other Thoughts: The fact that you can insert this both directions into a port is a negative, but I can get over it. The speeds are fast compared to my other drives, so I like that fact.READ FULL REVIEW
