This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T20 Series II 28W RMS 2.0 Multimedia Speakers
Pros: Compact, good looking speakers.Well balanced sound, with ample power and very adequate bass for home computer audio. Extremely nice 'heft' and finish.
Cons: Please accept my apology for deducting one egg, and for this somewhat unrelated gripe, but I feel shoppers should be aware of the Egg's lame returns policy:
NE initially shipped me a damaged set of DOA speakers that looked like someone else's return, then charged me 11 bucks to return and exchange them via the UPS store, which I was forced to drive across town to personally deliver to. The 'Egg 'sale' price ended up being not such a good deal, especially after having to wait an additional week to finally receive a second shipment containing a genuinely new item.
I understand that electronics purchases occasionally arrive DOA or damaged. BUT when Ammazon sells you a defective item, they send UPS to your door to pick up the return for FREE; no questions asked. Guess where I'm buying my electronics from now on... Buyer beware.
Pros: Inexpensive for 2gb, runs cool for passive, no fan noise.
Cons: Takes up half of adjacent PCI slot, refuses to bring me a beer.
Other Thoughts: I replaced a flaky XFX 1gb passively cooled video card with this Zotac. I'm happy to now have a more powerful GPU with driver software that doesn't cause my computer to randomly crash and reboot.
I have a 120 mm intake fan that blows across the PCI slots in my cramped mini tower, and Speedfan reports GPU temps constantly below 60 Celsius.
