Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Where's the case? How do I get one? -1 egg for it not being included as others described. Risky just putting it in my laptop bag without some kind of cover. The foam thing won't last long.
Other Thoughts: I have an AOC 21.5" monitor I got awhile back as a second desktop monitor, and their quality is good for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
Pros: These sound great and are very transparent. You also can't beat the special price of $99.99 each with free shipping (thanks, NewEgg!). One arrived yesterday from Nashville and one arrived today from Memphis. I wish I had gotten two from Nashville (see Cons). I am replacing a pair of RT55's on stands for my main stereo rig, and these bad boys love my sufficiently powered Onkyo receiver. +/- 0 volume is simply awesome. I really like the sound.
Cons: Unfortunately, one of the speakers arrived with the speaker grill broken (seriously collapsed at the top with broken plastic). I described the issue when I registered the speaker with the broken grill earlier today, but haven't heard back from Polk Audio yet. From what I'm seeing in the other reviews, it will be awhile before I get a new one. Automatic 1 egg deduction for hassle factor. Maybe if Polk Audio folks read these reviews, they'll send the grill manufacturing design back to those engineers who are always under pressure to cost-cut their designs. The RT55's were a much better design and manufactured with a better quality grill. I think a speaker grill that is nearly free standing and suspended away from the speaker box is just asking for trouble, especially one made of thin plastic.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Portable 100GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive ST910021U2-RK
Pros: Fast enough to run a Virtual Machine from and still be a nice external image backup device for my notebook.
Cons: None; 7200 RPM and 100 GB makes it worth the slight premium.
Other Thoughts: I got one of these from Dell before NewEgg started carrying it. I would have bought it from NewEgg, but it simply wasn't available until now.READ FULL REVIEW
