This review is from: ASUS CUBE V2 With Google TV Wireless Interface - Retail
Pros: has a lot of your online tools in one one place, can switch from TV to online, to netflix in a few button pushes.
Cons: netflix doesn't work, it tries to load movies and times out. I haven't bothered with google tv, or my a- prime accounts, because if netflix doesn't play, i doubt those will play either. About to remove it from my tv.
Other Thoughts: The idea is certainly cool, put all your internet tools, tv and apps all in one easy to use interface.. well so it seems at first till you hit the mouse (pointer) button on the side. The layout of the remote sucks, i always hit that button accidentally. Oh and asus writes back a day after the rebate expired that i sent something in wrong. So if you're looking for this thing cheap, be very wary.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HYPE RC Crash-Proof Sphere Robotic UFO
Pros: it does fly.
Cons: well, wasn't expecting much, but wanted to fly this by my fruit trees to scare the squirrels away lol. I thought the crash proof shell would be a slightly harder plastic. it's very thin plastic that if you even bump the wall or anything as it's flying will make the propeller hit the shell as it deflects in on inpact. So it's not really crash proof. IR controller is pretty cheap but it works.
Other Thoughts: hard to keep in a hover state, have to adjust power slightly contstantly, and moving it slightly hgher then it goes and hits the ceiling then lower It just slightly and it'll drop down to the floor. once it rolled upside down and then it was stuck. So not the robust ufo helicopter I was looking for. Also needs 6AA for controller LOL. wow. Oh I don't know the range, haven't flown it outside yet till I get the hang of the controls. which are just 2 sticks up and down but still, not the easiest to control.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
Pros: Decided to get these while on sale. For the price these are great full sounding drivers. Since its 4 6.5 inch drivers, the sound is still crisp yet doesnt get that low. I have the Dsw 660 sub set at 80 hz and everything sounds amazing with my audyssey multi ex32 calibrated sound. Using 4 monitor 40s as my surround now, cs2 center. Just amazing for the money.
Cons: Still not earth shattering bass. Needs a good sub.
Other Thoughts: great speakers, would have loved 4 of these in a 5.1 configuration. But just as happy with my monitor 40s in a 6.1 config with the 70s in the front. Either way you'll enjoy great movies and DVD music with this setup.READ FULL REVIEW
