A550 5.1 Speaker System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs awesome for the price 02/14/2015

This review is from: A550 5.1 Speaker System

Pros: Great price. Good (not great) audio quality once you get the balancing setup properly.

The bass speaker is actually a lot better than expected. I had to turn it all the way down because I immediately got complaints from the next office over.

I would have loved to have these speakers in my college apartment. They sound good enough and I wouldn't get heartbroken if my buddies broke them accidentally during a party.

Cons: The default sound settings (or at least where it started on my system) sounded horrible. I had to play with both the Windows sound settings and the sound card settings (Realtek, built-in on the mobo) for an hour or so to make it sound even OK. I then had to play with the Realtek settings for another couple hours to calibrate the system to where the speakers are placed in the room. Only at this point was it finally acceptable to my ears.

The volume wheel on the desk control is extremely sensitive. It took me several weeks before I learned just how little of turn it takes to manipulate the volume. I am scared to even try to take it all the way up for fear that it would blow the speakers.

Other Thoughts: If you need some speakers for watching videos/movies or listening to music, and superb sound quality is not a concern, this is a great choice. I use them at work; my co-workers have commented that they look nice and the music is clear.

I would not recommend these speakers for 5.1 surround sound PC gaming.

EVGA 512-P3-1310-LR GeForce 210 512MB 32-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low price. Works well. Can run multiple monitors, but I had random problems with browser and MS Office windows not showing up properly or half-loading on the two screens it was running (one HDMI, one VGA); no problems experienced when running a single monitor (HDMI).

Cons: After 9 months, the fan started to go bad. And this thing is *LOUD* when it starts messing up. After 30 minutes I couldn't take it anymore, so I opened the case and stuck a piece of paper in it to jam the fan. When the card dies due to overheating, ill replace it with a fanless model.

Other Thoughts: I have been very happy with Item#: N82E16814130606, which I switched to for new purchases earlier this year because of the higher memory and no fan (otherwise its basically the same card).

Ergoguys WP-012-BK-E Black 5 Buttons USB Wired Optical 800 dpi JOY Vertical Ergonomic Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: First ergo mouse and am very impressed. Definitely not a gaming-worthy mouse, but I am going to take it to work to see if it relieves my wrist strain.

Also fits my huge hands well.

Cons: Just a standard 2-button/wheel mouse.

Other Thoughts: I adjusted to it in about 10 minutes.
