This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 Series II 32 watts RMS 2.0 Speakers
Pros: Excellent sound.
Just the right size for desktop use.
Well built with look & feel of quality.
The sound produced is great for watching streaming media (Netflix, Hulu Plus) and playing music. Quality highs and mid-range and surprising bass response given their size.
Cons: Auto-off. As others have mentioned, these will automatically shut off after a while and take several seconds to resume sound after the first bit of audio is sent.
Cable from left to right speaker could be longer. But is probably OK for nearly all desktop configs. I have dual 27" screens and the cable is long enough to connect the speakers when placed on either side of the dual monitors.
Other Thoughts: Very happy with these speakers. I had some older 5.1 speakers and was annoyed with the clutter of the center speaker + 4 satellites and sub-woofer.
The T40s won't produce the same low frequency sound of a sub, but they don't a great job considering their size. I don't need to rattle the windows, I just want quality sound. These deliver.
Also, got them during a special along with a "shop mobile" coupon so ended only paying sixty-seven Washingtons. Great deal on some great speakers! Thanks Newegg :)
This review is from: Hamilton Beach 49981 Stainless steel The Scoop Single-Cup Coffee Maker
Pros: Can use your own coffee, no pods to buy, Reusable metal basket filters, easy to clean, makes really good (& hot) coffee. Perfect for the "coffee snob" (like me) who needs a small personal coffee maker at work because the coffee provided is nasty.
The flippable metal cup holder is a really nice touch.
Overall, a high quality, well-constructed coffee maker.
Other Thoughts: Why isn't there a basket filter-holder hook on both sides? There are 2 filters, why not 2 hooks? Would be handy for storage so that the filters can dry.
Tips: The drip can splatter a bit, so I build up a little platform underneath so that my travel mug barely fits under. This eliminates the small amount of coffee spray.
I wipe off the water dispenser lid after each use and also rinse the basket and secondary basket. They come clean without soap if you don't let the grounds dry in the basket.
I've also found that you need to grind the coffee a little more coarse than you're probably used to. Otherwise, you end up with coffee sediment in the brew.
And DO NOT overfill the filter basket thinking you'll end up with a strong cup o' Joe. The coffee bubbles up and ends up all over the brew top and thermoplastic o-ring. Which is a pain to clean.
Great L'ill coffee maker. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.
