This review is from: Polk Audio RTi8 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (single)
Pros: I have owned a lot of Polk speakers(M70, M50, M40, M30, RTi10, CSiA6, FXiA6, RTiA3, RTi6 and the RTi8's). These are much more detailed than the M70's and have a warmer more open sound than the RTi10's.
The RTi8 paired with the CSiA6 and FXiA6 surrounds give me a great home theater experience.
Even though my RTi10's have a lot more bass the mid's on these RTi8's sound so much better to me.
If there is any weakness in the sound of these speakers it is the bass. I run them with a sub but often listen to music without the sub and find the bass adequate for my taste.
These don't need tons of power to sound their best. I power these with a Yamaha RX-V773 receiver rated @ 95 watts per channel and am totally satisfied with the sound. I have listened to these on a Yamaha receiver rated @ 70 watts per channel and that was plenty for these.
Cons: Bass may not be enough to satisfy many.
Takes many hours of break-in before they sound their best.
Other Thoughts: Of all the Polk speakers I have owned I like these the best for home theater fronts and for listening to stereo music.
At less than $200 each these are a bargain.
Pros: With my I7 2600K this thing runs PCARS great. It is a huge upgrade over my previous GTX 770 4G.
Easily overclocks to exceed the performance of a base GTX 980.
My temps never exceed 70 degrees with the fan on auto even when running GPU at 110%.
Cons: Backplate model cost much more.
Other Thoughts: I read a lot of reviews before I purchased this and most thought this was the best of the GTX 970's.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: THRUSTMASTER T300RS The FIRST official Force Feedback wheel for PS4 (1080 degrees)
Pros: Substantial FFB upgrade from my G25 and G27.
I use this wheel exclusively on PC and have been able to configure the wheel on all my racing games: NR2003, GTR2, Dirt 2 & 3, LFS, Iracing, Assetto Corsa, Shift2 and Pcars.
In all these games the FFB feels much more natural and gives much better feel for when the tires have reached their limit in cornering compared to my G25 and G27.
Much stronger FFB than G25/G27.
My immersion is much enhanced with this belt drive wheel.
Cons: Pedals are very light, have no clutch and I can feel no progression in the brake.
No separate shifter, only paddle shifter.
Twice the cost of a G27
Other Thoughts: I use an adapter to use my G25 pedals with this wheel.
If this wheel came with a better pedal set I would rate it a 5.
