Logitech Z506 75 watts 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs made for a cubical? 01/05/2015

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.

Acer H6 Series H236HLbid Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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.

EnGenius ESR1200 Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz Wireless AC1200 Cloud Gigabit Router with USB Port and EnShare
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice design. Dual band, create your own cloud

Cons: 5 GHz band will drop

Other Thoughts: This router is much more stable than my old Netgear. The old would require rebooting on a daily basis. I have only had to reboot this one once.

The 5GHz band is quite fast for the limited devices that support it, but it does tend to drop a lot and have to be manually reconnected. (A lot is a relative term, once every few days).

Use the could share and hooked up my 1.5TB external HDD up to it. Was able to access from work, but transfer speeds were crazy slow, so, you are still better off using SkyDrive or Google Drive. Not a deal breaker by any means, but if that is a feature you are looking at as a prime reason to buy, you might want to pass.
