This review is from: Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
Pros: Decent Bass
More RMS Power
Bass Control & Volume Control
Cons: -Useless 360 Degree Sound
-Horrible Humming, Buzzing, Harmonic Distortion sound effects
-It makes loud buzzing sound as you increase volume up to around 40-50%
-360 Degree Sound makes the worse sound quality I've ever heard in my entire life.
Other Thoughts: It's not worth paying $90 for this abysmal Logitech Z523 with 360 Degree Sound Effect. It will never sound as good as Logitech Z313 and even Z623.
Both Z323 and Z523 Speaker 2.1 uses 360 Degree Sound effect and both sounds very garbage!
Don't ever buy this speaker again!
Go with Logitech Z623 2.1 Speaker with higher, clean bass sound quality.
Or if you're on budget, go with Logitech Z313 with fairly decent sound quality.
I've had this for few days and I didn't like it whatsoever! I returned it back to Logitech and gave me refund in 5-10 business days.
Pros: -Great Cooling Solution
-Great Overclocking Performance
-Backshield plate to prevent dust on the back
Cons: -Cannot update VBIOS except ASUS UEFI BIOS Motherboard
-Cannot use Displayport 1.2 due to signal loss issue. Results: Mouse freezing, Video Playback freezes, Windows Taskbar flicker for more than 10 seconds, etc.
-Dual-Link DVI is the only port available without a problem, except Displayport
-Driver issues with ASUS DIRECTCUII GTX 670-DC2-2GD5
Other Thoughts: Please make a better quality GPU that works 100% before you sell it.
It was supposed to be able to update VBIOS on any motherboard such as MSI, EVGA, GIGABYTE, etc.
Displayport doesn't work very well. Lost signal most of the time when it's powered off/on.
I'm tired using Dual-Link DVI cable. Displayport is so much better for higher bandwidth, higher refresh rate, as well as higher color bit rate, and even lower power usage.
When next generation GPU architecture Volta comes out by NVIDIA around 2016, I'm just going to buy GPU from MSI next time since MSI first designed cooling solution on GPU way back in 2007 or 2008. I can't recall.... Besides, it's easy to update VBIOS on MSI graphics card whereas ASUS Graphics Card doesn't allow me to update VBIOS on my MSI GD65 Z77A Motherboard. It's ridiculous!
Please ASUS, test the GPU that's working 100% before you start shipping your products on the market. No more fraud! No more gimmicks! No more defective parts! It's very annoying! I'm not happy right now and I am tired using Dual-Link DVI cable. I really want to switch over to Displayport interface!
Pros: -Very fast Sequential Reads & Write
-Fastest $k Random Reads as well as Writes
-Consumes less power (LPDDR2 SDRAM Cache)
-Uses Toggle-NAND Flash Memory to reduce cost as well as increasing performance
-Does not fail when I first got my hands on SAMSUNG 840 PRO
-Super fast Operating System loading time in less than 15 seconds
-Game loads very quickly and it's very responsive due to lower access time as well as faster Queue Depth of One (4k Reads)
Cons: -Older games does Not require SSD for faster loading time
-Some newer games take full advantage of SSD such as Battlefield 3, Starcraft II, Diablo III, League of Legends, etc. You name it.
-Games these days used more than 10GB nowadays and eats a lot of space which can hurt some consumers to put more money to buy more capacity; however, it's too prohibitive or expensive to invest more than $500 for 500GB Nand Flash Memory or greater.
Other Thoughts: It's highly recommended for everyone to pick up SSD for faster boot time as well as consuming less power and increasing productivity from day to day computer basis.
Don't pick OCZ Vector or other SSD that uses -SandForce controller. SandForce controller gets slowed over time as spaces get filled up.
