This review is from: Samsung HW-H450 Wireless Audio Sound Bar
Pros: Wireless Subwoofer
Broad sound spectrum
Digital SPDIF input
Harmony Remote 650 controls it perfectly
Compact sound bar puts out plenty of sound and fits under or directly in front of your TV, or mounts on wall with supplied mounts.
Subwoofer plenty ample for large bedroom 20x20
Simple simple simple to set up and configure.
Cons: Not 5.1, but it really makes up for it.
Other Thoughts: You are paying more here for the wireless subwoofer, but it does work straight OOB.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY XLR8 SSD9SC240GMDA-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: The PNY XLR8 240GB SSD comes in at a great performance/price point.
It is a solid and reliable performer, and PNY adds on a 3 YR warranty, unlike brand O*Z and others.
Cons: Not really a con, unless you require advanced data encryption on your storage devices. This unit uses the Sandforce 22xx series (2281) controller and does not support AES-256 encryption. AES-128 encryption works perfectly fine as does the drive's standard, un-encrypted operation mode. I think this is probably the reason for the stellar price point as well.
Other Thoughts: This is a no-brainer for a laptop or desktop not requiring the highest AES encryption, and it has very good performance (not the best, but decent read/write speeds). You'll need to spend another $40 or $50 to correct that on a different SSD, if it is worth that much to you. Otherwise, a super value and solid performer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price. (a come-on, of course)
Cons: Failed within a week. OCz hinted they would refund/replace, but its not worth the tap dancing and second guessing I would have to do to even try it.
