This review is from: Polk Audio CSi A6-Black High Performance Center Speaker Single
Pros: I had to replace my AR2C center (blown tweeter) and since Acoustic Research is out of business I was really concerned about getting a center speaker of the same quality and one that would match the timbre with my AR3's (two main towers.) Took a chance on this after listening to numerous centers. I didn't want to go to high end, would definitely sound off, so tried to stay in the same price range as my original ($600). I have to say that this speaker sounds (and feels) like it was made for the AR3's. I was very pleasantly surprised and will definitely consider Polk's next time I look to put a system together.
A added bonus was the ability to flip the speaker so it pointed at an upward angle for placement under my screen.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended if you need a center speaker (work as a great substitute for me!)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great for BluRay burner (still fairly new tech not support by most manufacturers.) Came with cables, software, manual and blank disc, not bad for an OEM drive.
Other Thoughts: This is my second LG BluRay burner. The first, and still probably one of the best produced to this date, was the GGW-H20L. The GGW-H20L was one of the first consumer BluRay burners with a reasonable price (around $299.00 almost 2 years ago), read HD-DVD's and could write BD-R's at 6x, although no discs were available at that "high" speed. I've never been a huge LG fan but they have done an excellent job in my opinion spear heading BluRay burners, (I.E. both of mine). They started the trend to bring prices down to reasonable levels, and with the relatively large number of GGW-H20L positive reviews and sales, also helped to spur a price decrease in the area of BD media. Being a new technology, the "coaster factor" and high price of media probably turned a lot off a lot of people, after they took the plunge and now new burners can usually only be found online. All new technologies have growing pains and us early adopters need to suck it up; that's why we by these things first!READ FULL REVIEW
