This review is from: Definitive Technology Mythos Two On-Wall or Table top Speaker Single
Pros: Decent build quality
Cons: Supplied specs are misleading at best.
Other Thoughts: Please read manrecon's review - it is on the money.
I purchased some 8040 series surrounds and feel like I was VERY mislead regarding specifications.
The mid-bass drivers are smaller that specs would seem to indicate and low frequency performance will not even come close to the specs (overall 50z spec), they will do about 200hz. I had also some promonitor 1000's spec'd at 8 ohms, DC resistance was about 3.4 ohms or so. That indicated an approximately 4 ohm speaker. They are not horrible but the Deftech specs are meaningless.
Pros: The drive worked fine right out of the box. No driver issues or firmware issues that I'm aware of at this time. Cosmetics are nice (the gloss matches my other drive and case nicely).
Cons: The particular drive I have seems very noisy, much more so than my other burner rating at a very similar speed. The Plextor is also MUCH more particular of Media that the other drives I have owned. Additionally it is commonly is very slow or fails when finalizing the burned CD or DVD. I wouldn't be quite so critical of the drive is it weren't priced as a premium product. Overall I would say this is a okay drive but not superb; possibly even a bit on the sub standard side overall.
In summary it worked but not as well as my other burners and also is quite a bit louder. It's just not as seamless and enjoyable to use as some of the others out there. If a person is a Plextor fanboy then nothing is really wrong with it but If all you want is a quality working burner than you can save some money and likely get a better drive elsewhere.
Pros: This is a decent price and okay performance.
Cons: Quality control seems to be an issue. Data is always more valuable that the item it's stored on. Both consumers and manufactures need to keep this in mind. All the engineering and technology is a waste if it's never executed to a quality product. Maybe China is no longer the bargain is used to be, possibly US manufacturing wasn't such a bad deal after all - just food for thought.READ FULL REVIEW
