4 out of 5 eggs 10 years later... 11/28/2016

This review is from: ALTEC LANSING 251 60 Watts 5.1 Speaker

Pros: Sound quality has not aged. Works well with Realtek hd audio drivers and fair enough without drivers in some cases.

Cons: Drivers. some are better , some are worse, and some are worse. I must have tried 40 or 50 different variants and revisions. R276 64 bit seems to work for me better than most. R272 is good but lacks one or two things. ie scroll wheel control of HD audio manager.
Since most codecs are optimized for 2 speakers or headphones these days (subjective opinion)

Other Thoughts: i just wanted to speak my two cents and review since i see these selling here and there. also For those who desire 5.1 speakers, if i may ask you to ask yourself if you mind having more wires about under your desk.

aslo, While i did not purchase these on newegg, or anywhere for that matter. I received them as a gift, or hand me down. They have been in use for about 10 years now and i am pretty sure they sound as they did when brand new. Durable product.


Pros: Aesthetically pleasing design
LED lights are not overly bright which is always a good thing.
Fairly good flow and not much noise at lower RPM settings. (1000 rpm)

Cons: Noticeably louder at 1200-1300 rpm.
Not compatible with low voltage adapter or plugs that i use with my case which is a Corsair 400R.
Fan speed only goes down to 1000 rpm approx with the lowest possible setting in UEFI on an Z77 board.

Other Thoughts: For the simple fact that a low voltage adapter would address the issues i mentioned i do recommend these for front fans.

last thought: i wonder why parts between corsair would not fit out of the box.

SanDisk Extreme Pro 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I know it is fast. You know it is fast. No need to mention that.
The one thing that Sandisk has done well in my eyes is the consistency of performance over time.
Non degradation of components.(syntax may not be correct)

Cons: No

Other Thoughts: A 240GB SSD (Sata III) is priced considerably lower than recent years. For the remaining drives with MLC Nand , there is not a better choice at current price. This is basically the Extreme II in terms of performance and quality.
