Pros: Virtually silent, does not require 6-pin power cable to run. No issues with install.
Cons: none as of now
Other Thoughts: bought this card for the family computer that I occasionally do light gaming on. Put it in our Gateway (i5-2300, 2.8 Sandy bridge, Blu-Ray, 1 HDD, 300w psu) worked without issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Energy ESW-M8 1200 Watt Mini Subwoofer (Black) Single
Pros: Super small. Very enveloping bass. Very nice looking. Seems solidly built.
Cons: A bit boomy at first. After break in period and tweaking is much better. Still not quite as "punchy" as I would expect from 8" but good nonetheless. Unit says "Designed in Canada (ok), built in China (not ok)"
Other Thoughts: This is our first subwoofer and probably would be rated highly due to improvement over having none. Recently upgraded receiver to Yamaha rx-a800. Powering Polk Monitor 70's (front), old Advent Audio Focus (center), Polk Fxi-a4's (rear surround) and this sub. Although a hodgepodge of brands sounds quite excellent and the sub after tweaking and break in sounds very good. The size is very important. So small, can fit anywhere and be unobtrusive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast startup. After removing some programs from startup, computer is at the welcome screen 32 seconds after pressing the on button. Super quiet. Plenty of USB's. Powerful quad (despite no virtual cores). Plenty of storage and ram. Blu-Ray is nice as well. I like the look of the case and the angled/easily accessable usb/card slots are nice. After a month+ use, still very satisfied with product.
Cons: Would have liked a restore disc, but the backup utility is ok.
Other Thoughts: When this pc is discounted to the 500 dollar range it is a perfect pc, but even at retail it's worth the price. This is about the 7th or 8th family pc I've bought and it is by far the best. Super quiet, very functional and powerful. The startup is wonderfully quick, especially considering it has a mechanical hard disc. Our last pc had Vista and moving to W7 was great. If you are in the market for a new (non-gaming) pc, this is one that should be strongly considered.READ FULL REVIEW
