This review is from: BALT 90005 iFlex Series File Cabinet, 13w x 19 3/4d x 26 1/8h, Cherry
Pros: Very nice and rounded finish, easy to assemble. Rolls well on the above average wheels.
Cons: Poor quality drawers.
Other Thoughts: I own a Balt 20x72 inch table that is very nice. Rounded legs, feels sturdy, etc. I thought this would be similar quality however I was very much disappointed.
This cabinet's drawers are terrible. They do not slide smooth and they have no runners to keep the drawer from tilting downward when extended. The big drawer is nearly useless.
In my opinion, good quality drawers are a requirement. This unit is going back.
During the same time, I tried some of the drawers from the IKEA AKURUM series and I was very impressed. (The IKEA drawers are still budget drawers, but WORLDS better than these Balt drawers.)
Pros: Beautiful monitor, solid construction, color calibration.
Cons: Expensive, heavy, somewhat poor aesthetics.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this monitor and the Dell U2412M at the same time. Both monitors are incredible, but the Dell is 1/3rd the price. There are some VERY detailed reviews at TFT Central that discuss both of these monitors and I couldn't decide which one I wanted more so I ordered both.
The NEC is a little bit more stable than the Dell, and the NEC offers a color calibration device. Because I am not super concerned with color accuracy I opted for the cheaper Dell.
This review is from: Bose® Companion® 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System
Pros: Great sounding speakers at a reasonable price
Cons: No auxiliary input or treble or base controls.
Other Thoughts: These are great speakers in this price range and in this physical size. Compared to the M-Audio AV30s that I own, these speakers do quite well. The Bose sound like good speakers, the AV30s sound like you are really there. The AV30s are in my opinion significantly better. However, I needed a set of good speakers that didn't take up a lot of space. For that purpose, these speakers are amazing.
Ps: I also have the Logitech Z-2300, and I feel that the M-Audio AV30s sound better even though the Z-2300s have better bass.
