Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

5 out of 5 eggs Nice for the Price, Awesome for Sonos 05/07/2014

This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

Pros: Fantastic frequency response out of the box. It's like they were made for my ears. Sound even better with a sub but I think they are still decent by themselves. I haven't tried them with movies, but sound wonderful for a wide range of music.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I added Sonos to my house but I'm not a fan of their speakers. So I bought my own speakers and connected them to my Sonos. Half of my 6 setups use these Pioneer speakers and I am incredibly happy with them. I would not hesitate to buy again if I needed to add more later.

Pros: It's so light. People are almost always amazed when they first pick it up. I am extremely happy with this notebook. Toshiba did so many things right. Trackpad is good with 2 and 3 finger support. You may need to tweek it a bit. The CPU is fast and responsive. Some of the Toshiba apps are actually very useful. The battery life gives me all day computing.

Cons: No 2 finger right click. No idea why. I'm going to have to upgrade to as SSD. Why? Because my wife has an SSD in her's. Screen is ok. It won't blow you away but it won't disappoint you either.

Other Thoughts: It has up to 3 finger gesture support. Adobe Reader proves it supports 3 finger swipe up and down in addition to left and right even if it isn't listed in the trackpad settings. If you got more cash to spend look at the R830 series for some serious power upgrades to the notebook. This is the consumer version of the notebook. However, I think this is the best bang for your buck.

Pros: Extremely fast. The noise level hasn't bothered me at all so I'm not sure why people are complaining. It fit in Antec 900 case without any issues. I could not be anymore happy with this card. Best early Christmas present a wife could give her husband.

Cons: The 570 might be better choice in some cases but having Eyefinity more than makes it for it in my book. Also, I had to buy a mini DP adapter to convert to DP so I could use my active DP to DVI adapter. If you look around you can find dirt cheap adapters with reasonable shipping.

Other Thoughts: It runs my Eyefinity setup without any crashes at all unlike by Crossfire 5770 setup it replaced. I'm running 4800x1200 over 3 21" 4:3 displays.
