This review is from: Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Deep, loud bass. Booming explosions. Hard hitting crashes. Good crossover range and volume control. Dual input.
Cons: Difficult with continuous, transitional frequencies. Loud port noise with musical frequencies below 60-70 Hz. Not clean or clear tone, especially with music.
Other Thoughts: I purchased the PSW10 with expectations of a $100 subwoofer. Well, that is exactly what I received. I do not believe there is a comparably-priced subwoofer with this kind of performance when watching movies. With that said, I do not believe there is a comparably-priced subwoofer with this kind of performance when listening to music. Let me elaborate... this subwoofer is an extremely good deal, but there are compromises, and listening to music is the compromise. If you are a musical enthusiast, you will notice the cons immediately, especially when listening to bass-heavy music, such as hip hop, techno, dance. If you love to watch movies as if you are in the theater, you cannot go wrong. Purchase this with confidence, understanding and having appropriate expectations.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Dolica MS-2USB2000 Black Dual USB DC Car Charger
Pros: Charges iPhone and my Incredible 2 simultaneously.
Cons: Doesn't improve gas mileage. ;-)
Other Thoughts: Directions say to plug in charging devices then plug unit into the 12V socket. This would seem to cause a greater surge. I have left the unit plugged in before charging my devices. No problems ever. The LED always stays on when plugged in, whether charging or not.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Navgear Universal Dash Mount
Pros: The mount will hold most/any windshield mount device. Heavy, large base with lots of surface area. Looks decent.
Cons: Does not "stick" to dashboard of my two vehicles. Not confident it will work much better in others.
Other Thoughts: The underside of the weighted base has a rubberized, somewhat sticky surface. The dashes on my Town and Country and Altima are rather sloped. The mount will not stay in one place during most turns. I even placed the mount on a flat area of the dash and proved only to work slightly better. My guess is there would be no problem if the mount was set into a recess of the dash or against a windshield, pillar, and an opposite sloped area. I will not return the mount, but would if it was worth the hassle. My next approach is to affix some nonslip pads to the bottom. The last resort will be to add a layer of silicone caulk if the pads do not seem to perform better. I would recommend spending a few dollars more for a different brand.READ FULL REVIEW
