This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor40 Series II Two-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker (Black) Pair
Pros: Amazing sound clarity. Pretty great bass from a "small" speaker.
Cons: A little big and heavy for a "bookshelf" speaker, but I made it work. NOTE the port on the back pushes a lot of air, if you put these in a bookshelf make sure there is room for air movement or be prepared to cut a hold in the back of your bookshelf (which is what I did).
Other Thoughts: I got these and the matching center channel with the 8" sub for my living room. I have actually disconnected the sub and just use these speakers, they put out plenty bass for me all by themselves except for low rumbling movies. I have them "hidden in plain sight" in bookshelves next to my TV, they take up a whole shelf by themselves. And I had to cut a hole in the back of the bookshelves to allow for air movement, the rear port on these speakers really moves a lot of air. Except for really deep bass these sound better than my old tower speakers, without taking up the space.
Match the rest of your speakers with similar Polk and you'll have an awesome sounding experience.

Pros: Lots of outlets and USB ports.
Cons: Bigger than what I would like. I wanted to put it in my laptop bag... it's too big for that. But I'll just use it around the house or stick in my suitcase if I go on a trip.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate 4TB Expansion Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STEA4000400 Black
Pros: So fast for USB. Hooked up to USB3 I threw 2TB of movies at it and it never, ever dipped below 120mbs on the copy. And it's silent and a great size. Got a little warm but not hot.
Cons: I wish the cord was longer. Seriously, 18" is barely enough to get to the back of my case and put the drive on top, it's a stretch.
The drive is too tall for a PS4 if you're thinking about that. Stick to the 2TB one.
Other Thoughts: A great deal when it was on sale. If I ever fill this up with backups I will certainly buy another.READ FULL REVIEW
