This review is from: Logitech Multimedia Speakers Z200 with Stereo Sound for Multiple Devices, Black
Pros: They worked out of the box...not much else really. Let me give a little bit of a background here. (Skip this paragraph if you want to read the review part) I've been using Cyber Acoustics CA-3090 speakers for over 5 years now. The plastic speaker bubbles are dented, the knob has to be on full volume or the sound only plays on 1 of the 2 speakers, and one of them doesn't even have a stand anymore; It lays on its side since it broke off. I've long been overdue for a replacement set, and at $25, I decided I'd finally get some use out of my gift cards.
Cons: When I bought my previous speakers in 2011, they went for about $30, so I figured I would get about the same quality with these as the ones that I already had, an assumption which I later regretted. One of the reasons I decided on these was because they didn't have a bulky sub-woofer attachment, but these speakers are enormous. There's barely room on my desk for these things. In addition, the sound quality is terrible. I'm not an audio snob, and I've never used high-end audio systems. Even so, I could tell how bad the audio on these is. Everything coming out of them sounds muffled, like I'd taken a towel and thrown it over the speakers. I tried to use them for a couple weeks, but after a session of using them where the terrible quality of the speakers stood out (they really can't do bass very well) I disconnected them and re-connected my half-broken, 5-year-old speakers.
Other Thoughts: In short, unless you're going to be using these for a party full of loud, drunk people who wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway, I'd pass on these. There are other cheap speakers with much better quality, and these are terrible even for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The room my desktop computer is located in is notorious for getting terrible reception. Not just from the Wi-fi router but from cell networks as well. I bought this adapter hoping it would help with this problem, and I was not disappointed. I now have a steady, strong W-fi signal consistently at 4 out of 5 bars. I sometimes even get full usage out of the 35/35 network speed.
Cons: The only problem I had with the adapter was it's cradle, which started giving me connection issues. But now I have the adapter plugged directly into a front panel USB 3.0 port, and it works great.
Other Thoughts: If you're having signal issues where you need a Wi-Fi adapter, then DEFINITELY considering getting this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: USB Wired Controller for Microsoft Xbox 360 XBOX360 OEM Black
Pros: It worked for a bit...
Cons: Where to begin. I made the mistake of installing this remote's drivers while plugged into a USB 3.0 port, and then the remote refused to work unless plugged into a 3.0 port else the drivers wouldn't install properly. The A/B/X/Y buttons were somehow of lesser quality, and two of them got stuck down for no reason and I had to open up the remote to fix 'em. The joysticks were low quality, I used a controller testing program to figure that one out.
Other Thoughts: I thought I'd be saving myself a bit of money on this remote, but honestly it wasn't worth it. It really is worthwhile to spend a bit more on a better quality controller.READ FULL REVIEW
