This review is from: Sony SS-CR3000 Three Speaker Package
Pros: Cute little speakers that provide mid-range frequencies for the partially deaf.
Cons: Incorrect specifications given. The center channel contains only two drivers, both are 2.75"; there is no tweeter. The satellites each have only one driver, being 2.75".
Other Thoughts: For acceptable frequency response, you need to add both a subwoofer and a center channel tweeter.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great configuration:
Kepler GPU wt 1 GB GDDR5
12 GB RAM
2 TB HDD
Front and back USB 3
Memory card reader
Runs fairly quiet and cool. Good performance all around.
Dell is good about keeping drivers and BIOS available for update.
Cons: Has only 1 SATA III (6 gbps) port.
Does not include drive rails for adding another HDD.
"Front" headphone jack is actually on top of the machine towards the back (need long headphone cable).
GPU is not as powerful as you might expect from a Kepler-based board.
Does not have an LED to indicate when the PC is sleeping.
You may want a better keyboard.
Other Thoughts: Adding an SSD as you primary drive, the included 2 TB drive will need to move to an SATA II port (or you can add an SATA III controller card to the machine).
This PC is such a solid deal, I purchased two of them.
This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 PCI-e Card with HDD Power Connector (3 + 1 Ports) Model SD-PEX20080
Pros: Provides 3 external USB 3 ports, 1 internal USB port.
Cons: Needs 5V power to be supplied via Molex connector. This is not optional as might be implied by the included instructions; the card will not function at all without it. Works fine with this power connection.
Other Thoughts: Uses a x1 PCI Express 2.0 slot. The included instructions point you to a third party website for the drivers (VIA). The drivers found there are newer than those found on SYBA's website. SYBA's website does not mention the third party website. Performance of the card is fine; I deducted a star due to the sketchy documentation.
