This review is from: Klipsch Synergy KSW12 12-Inch Powered Subwoofer
Pros: Set up was a snap. I enjoy that the subwoofer has variable boost and a good frequency range. The volume and crossover knobs are well put together so they will not rotate while bass is being provided (which changes the sound), lighter than expected so easy to move which allows mine to creep across the floor during some of the music I listen too. Substantially fills an acoustic hole that we lacked before having it. Sci-Fi movies and "Casper the Friendly Ghost" sound fantastic. (Casper was one of the first to extensively use DTS and it sounds great).
Cons: None as I purchased mine while it was on sale
Other Thoughts: A friend of mine set his up over where the forced air used to come through his floor and the bass actually sounds like it's coming from under the floor all around the room.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97WE LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Excellent price and everything works great...
Cons: .... except the sound. Sound drops during games with the latest updates, grounded-off set screws, tested power supply, did just about everything I could to get the sound to work. Put a different soundcard in, disabled the on-board still exhibits the same issue. Seems to be a known issue yet no fix as with their Z87 predecessor.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunately the sound thing is a deal-breaker and I am now looking at a different mainboard - otherwise this mainboard is perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDQ77MK LGA 1155 Intel Q77 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It was very affordable when I bought it last September and fast! On board sound is good for most intentions
Cons: None really, had a bit of an issue with the TPM not being compatible.
Other Thoughts: Fixed the TPM issue by installing the software, activating the chip with the software, reinstalling Windows, then turning on the TPM. Then it was fine, oh, and the NICs began to go, eventually with Windows first, then with every other operating system. Linux Mint lasted the longest....READ FULL REVIEW
