Pros: Decent Price
install cpu, mem, Connect HD, PS- Post, load windows files, good to go!
Intel graphics 3000 is the best integrated grapchics solution I have seen. impressive. Great little setup for the money.
Cons: only 2 mem slots but then MSI makes a different model with 4, so no problem really.
No OC genie button.no biggy either.
Other Thoughts: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM (PC3 10600) KVR1333D3N9K2/8G
WD 1.5 black drive 6.0gb
Everything worked first attempt loaded windows 7 in 12 minutes. Cant complain, just ordered a second board for another build.
Pros: Very fast drive
Cons: Slow windows 7 install. I thought the drive had hung up during the install, finally the progress bar started moving. About three months after installing the drive I started getting windows errors,corrupt drive errors. I am tired of this. I saw where OCZ told another newegg customer with similar issues to simply go to the ocz forum and update the firmware. I looked at that , no easy way to do that nor does the website show a firmware for anything other than linux. I am so tired of dealing with the constant drive errors I am installing a new SATA 3 SSD. Not as fast but it will be better than this. I have installed 5 SSd's in new systems with no problems like this. I installed this drive to see what it would do. It is fast but just is not worth the aggravation. If this product has a chance to succeed, the firmware update process will have to be improved.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-power 2.1 PC Speaker System
Pros: Great Sound if you have time to constatantly tweak the LCD controller settings with so many variable settings for different types of music, movies or gaming.
Cons: I use and love many Corsair products but NOT this one.
The LCD controller failed one month after purchase
**LCD controller to complicated to adjust-to many screen settings to adjust during music play.
**In my humble opinion this product is not up to the usual Corsair standards I am accustomed to. I wish I could get a refund or credit from Corsair- I would send them back.
Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this set of speakers. I am a loyal Corsair customer for many years, power supplies, cases, desktop memory etc. I spent $250.00 for this product thinking it would be an improvent over my $150.00 speakers-Wrong. The LCD screen went dead a month after I purchased. The speakers cannot be used without the LCD screen controller. The company emailed they woudl take care of it. They did- They sent a brand new set of speakers, not just the controller. This means it is easier or less costly for the company to replace the entire product rather than the defective LCD controller?
Overall you can get good sound with these speakers but the LCD controller is the biggest drawback due to the fact that it there are to many sound settings and it is difficult to naviagate through them while listening to music. Replace the fancy LCD controller with a manual bass and treble control knob and this would be a much better product worthy of the Corsair name.
