XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, White/Blue LED
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Fair for the price 04/23/2014

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, White/Blue LED

Pros: Color

Cons: Worthless fans

Other Thoughts: The intake fan died within 2 days which wasn't a problem - it's loud and the LEDs are tacky - the problem is now the bezel does not fit firmly to the front after removing it to take out the fan. No matter what I do, it will not tighten up like it was before removing it.

HIS Radeon HD 6950 DirectX 11 H695FN2G2M 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good enough for the cheapest 6950 available. It does not have the latest OpenGL API, but that doesn't matter in many cases.

This card is not unlockable. If you try to flash a 6970 BIOS to this card, you will brick it. There is no dual bios switch, and since it's not reference, the shaders available are what you get - there are no extras to unlock. It was built to be a 6950, not downgraded from higher bins.

Cons: HIS has gone down in quality lately and their warranty is pretty bad compared to most.

Other Thoughts: Great card if you know what you're getting. Don't expect a 6970 for this price because you will never get one from most non-reference cards, 2GB or not. This model in particular will never be flashable.

Panasonic SC-BTT370 FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc  Home  Theater System
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs 10% THD?! Worst sound quality for the price, ever. Panny is turning into Bose. 06/11/2011

This review is from: Panasonic SC-BTT370 FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System

Pros: It doesn't infect you with a disease when touched or looked upon.

Cons: I'll be forthright and admit that a friend bought these and I have listened to them many times in his home. I do not own them myself.

10% Total Harmonic Distortion? Are you kidding me? Please don't let Panasonic get away with this - do some research before paying a 500,000% markup on what this is actually worth

For this price you could get an actual receiver (Plenty of 5.1 Onkyo and Denon receivers for ~$150 that are, and I am not exaggerating, 50 times more powerful than this, and at less than 0.1% THD. Panasonic: 10% distortion; non-scam artists: 0.1%) and speakers that would blow these micro magnet, paper coned dollar store speakers out every window of the house.

Here's an example, a real-world one:
Me: Denon 391 ($140)+Bic DV62si speakers (~$99) 75w RMS per channel, 40hz-20khz of clean, non-distorted power.
My friend: Bad BR player with integrated amp that puts out no more than 2 real watts of power. 65hz-9khz of distorted sound. My cheap speakers put out more bass than

Other Thoughts: Panasonic was once a quality brand, one a person could honestly say and believe that they got what they paid a premium for, but these horrible HTIBs they've been putting out are staining their reputation.

With the awful quality and the high prices, I think they are trying to go the Bose route of shilling tech ignorant consumers with a pretty facade on the outside and the cheapest of the cheap components on the inside. 3ohm speakers are you kidding me? 10% THD is unacceptable; even if you have lived under a rock all your life and never heard a home theater, you would be shocked and appalled at the gall of Panasonic to release this garbage.
