MartinLogan Motion 8 Bookshelf Speaker Each
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic Speakers 07/28/2013

This review is from: MartinLogan Motion 8 Bookshelf Speaker Each

Pros: "Folded Motion Tweeter" (an Air Motion Transformer) is, to my ears, one of the more phenomenal tweeters I have heard. It gives you clean, clear reproduction of high frequencies without giving that overly-crisp, overly harsh sound that you get out of many other tweeters on speakers. The rest of the speaker is pretty nice too, but I can think of nothing about this that is plain about it.

Good sound. Good vocals. If you want decent left/right speakers, theses are solid and they would be great as a Center channel (which is more or less what it was designed for).

It's also nice that you can get away with giving it less power than some of the other audiophile class speakers. But keep in mind if you put a horribly cheap amp on this you will probably get distortion just like with any other speaker. Your system is only as good as your weakest link.

Cons: Price? But it's really not a bad price for the amount of clarity that you get from it.

Other Thoughts: I thought that I needed to chime in because Martin Logan is a phenomenal company who make great sounding speakers even at entry level (for an audiophile) prices. I have talked with several people who have had nothing but great things to say about how Martin Logan treats their customers and handles warranty claims. I own several of their speakers and plan to own several more.

4 out of 5 eggs Cool in more than one way 05/27/2009

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Cooled down my processor's temp (both idle and high-usage) anywhere from 15-20 degrees depending on what I'm doing. I was idling anywhere from 45-50 degrees Celsius on my Q6600, now it's usually closer to 30 or 33C.

Great for video encoding :-)

Also runs very quiet, especially considering what a beast it is.

Cons: The included 'Fan Speed Controller' was broken. It was like the fan couldn't get enough power. The fan would sit there and twitch like it was trying to start spinning but couldn't quite get enough juice. I didn't really care since I wanted the mainboard to control it anyways, but you would have been nice to have one less broken piece.

Those L.E.D.s look cool, but I wish there was an easy way to disable them. Blue light isn't the most helpful thing when trying to sleep, and I keep my computer in my bedroom.

Other Thoughts: Because of the broken speed control adapter, I was worried about the overall quality, but after having this for several months now, I can assure you that the fan and heatsink are top-notch. Just let your motherboard take control of it.

I highly recommend this to anybody running too hot, especially with the summer months coming up.

Like others have said though, watch your case clearance. it is HUGE. But not really a problem is you have a real computer case, not one of the tiny ones.

This review is from: Tablets

Pros: It's a free hat with a long bill. I like the orange rim quite a lot.

Cons: It's not already broken in...must...start...wearing it in!

Other Thoughts: freaking awesome, it's a comfy hat. Best friend actually wants to buy one now too.
