Pros: - fast
- cool keyboard
- large screen
- did I mention fast?
Cons: - no blu ray
- no ssd
Other Thoughts: I am a graphic artist and have a large desktop PC that I built to do my work on. Problem is that my wife likes to use my PC to play The SIMS because her old quad core laptop couldn't handle it.
So when her old laptop starting to have serious problems, I decided to get her one that would play any game she wants ... and leave my PC alone. This laptop is the one.
It plays the SIMS and every other game she wants smoothly and even better that my 8 Core Graphics Workstation. I even put ADOBE CC on it and played around and was impressed how it handled running InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator all at the same time. It even ran 3D Studio without any issues.
Even without SSD, this PC is fast. A BluRay drive would be nice to have (why aren't those standard yet?) but lack there of is by no means a deal breaker. I am extremely happy with this laptop and world definitely recommend it for whatever your computing needs are.
This review is from: Logitech Z506 75 watts 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
Pros: 5.1 under $60, work ok
Cons: way too short cords, no documentation, no support from logitech
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a PC 5.1 surround sound system I have had for over 8 years. I figured after all that time tech should have improved. Was looking at the z506 at the $100 mark as a possible upgrade so when I saw a referb under $60, I jumped at it. The product came with no documentation at all (and there is none on the web page). Since I had experience with 5.1, I was able to figure it out, but someone with no experience may have troubles, even though everything is color coded.
The sound is ok. Not great and really no upgrade from my old system (other than all speakers now work, which was no longer the case with my old system). My main concern is with the wires. This uses a cable rather than speaker wire which should make it a bit more durable (I hope) but the wire are way too short. My left from speaker is only 3.5 feet from the subwoofer (where everything hooks in) and the cord is pulled tight. the "rear" speakers could even get close to the rear of my small computer room. And since it doesn't use standard speaker wire, I can not extend it. My guess is that this is made more for an office cubical rather than an actual room. I wouldn't pay full price for this item, but if you can get a good deal and don't mind short wires, go ahead and give this a try.
Pros: great resolution and color, awesome blacks
Cons: very shiny, and reflective. Do not have a light behind you.
Other Thoughts: Comes with a great warranty and is an over all great deal for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
