This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single
Pros: I've owned the Klipsch Quintet for at least 10 years and thought I had a better than average set of HT speakers. After seeing the positive reviews for this speaker and the great price, I decided to try it. The difference in quality sound is truly unbelievable. I typically had to set the volume on my receiver in the -10 dB range to be able to hear the voices in movies. With this speaker, I'm around -25 dB, and the quality is exponentially improved. This speaker envelopes the room with not just the voices, but other sounds that I was obviously missing with the smaller speaker. I'm now clear on why they say the center speaker in a HT system is the most important one.
This speaker is very large, but I cannot list this as a con as the dimensions were spelled out clearly before I ordered it. Just understand that no one who mentioned this in their review is exaggerating. It is BIG.
Cons: None. I should have bought two. My son is dying for one after watching Avengers with me using it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price, capacity.
Cons: While the drive was recognized fine on first connect by my laptop, it was not so easy after that. On second connection, it was displayed as an "Unknown USB device" and could not be used, and yes, I disconnected properly. My laptop even informed me that it needed to be formatted, when it finally recognized it again properly, before I could use. I chose not to format, and tried it on another PC successfully. I then connected it to my laptop again and it worked properly. I backed up some stuff, disconnected and connected to my other PC, and got the recognition problem again; connected to my laptop with same recognition problem. Left it off overnight, and it worked properly the next morning. Used McAfee Shredder to shred my stuff off of it that morning and took it back for that whopping $50!
Other Thoughts: It is obvious by the number of threads and problems documented on Seagate's own forums that this is a widespread problem. What is more disappointing is that Seagate has not seen fit to resolve it. Their best advice after hours of research is to return it. I'm done with Seagate externals, but the competition has their share of complaints as well.READ FULL REVIEW
