Velodyne vFree Wireless Bluetooth Headphones (Silver)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty Darn Good 02/02/2015

This review is from: Velodyne vFree Wireless Bluetooth Headphones (Silver)

Pros: Good, balanced sound.
Quite comfortable.
Good range

Cons: Could be a little less cheaply-made.

Other Thoughts: These aren't noise-cancelling. I've never seen this claimed, so don't know why some reviews raise a stink about it. I also see an inexplicable range of sound quality claims. Go figure. I've got fine ears, and some great-sounding, very well-reviewed headphones. IMHO, these sound just fine. The biggest problem -- far-and-away -- is that Bluetooth blows. Depending on the implementation, your sound may be poor, and have such high latency that you can't watch movies/video with these. If so, that's the fault of the transmitting device, not these. I have a good Bluetooth host, and experience slight, but non-problematic latency.

Steeply discounted (four tens) these are an absolute steal.

Polk Audio Atrium 4 Compact Indoor/Outdoor Speaker White Pair
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Own. Love. 12/16/2014

This review is from: Polk Audio Atrium 4 Compact Indoor/Outdoor Speaker White Pair

Pros: Small, great, surprisingly good sound.

Cons: Woofer cage is potmetal.

Other Thoughts: These speakers punch well above their weight class. For < three figures, I'd buy them again in a heartbeat. The only real down is that one dropped from a modest height onto a wood floor. From this, the woofer cage bent, and the driver no longer worked. Polk sold me a new driver, all is well. But they should be made from stiffer metal. That aside, these are really great speakers. I highly recommend them. Remember, for proper bass, placement is ALWAYS critical.

COOLER MASTER Elite 110 RC-110-KKN2 Midnight Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case with Standard Size ATX PSU and 120mm Radiator Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: As chassis go, it's admittedly fairly small. "Okay" looking; not great. Yeah, you can add a bunch of drives on there, and a pretty big video card.

Cons: It's STILL WAAY TOO BIG!!! Why are "gamers" considered to be the only market for SFF?!? Even with a discrete video card, probably 50% of the internal volume is wasted. I ABSOLUTELY do NOT need an optical drive, and if I did, I'd be okay with EITHER a thin/laptop formfactor drive (easy to source) or USB. So why all this extra space? The issue is the standard ATX formfactor P/S, which is a poor choice; you want to go with a 1U/"server"-style, which are much more dense, but otherwise power/energy comparable.

Other Thoughts: NOBODY HAS YET gotten this chassis formfactor right! The Lian-Li LI PC-TU200B is only slightly larger, and much, much nicer/lighter (though admittedly much more expensive).

Please, Lian-Li -- or anybody -- MAKE A SMALLEST-POSSIBLE MINI-ITX CHASSIS. You'd sell a ton of 'em.
