This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
Pros: Yes I have these! The negative reviewer missed many points in speaker design. #1- the plasti-shell mounting is for fast and accurate assembly, using the lowest cost driver frame, It is not correct to upsize a driver when vented. What you do is RIGHT-SIZE it to the correct volume. and here, as in the crossover, we see a designed, not thrown together unit. Cheap speaker? Yes! I found the harmonic distortion high in the bass driver, below 200Hz. It is also true that you DO NOT hear this unless you aspire to organ concertos! Tweeter is fine & is time-aligned!
Cons: Vinyl. You can peel it off & do elegant veneer. Just do paper-backed veneer
Other Thoughts: A serious quality spkr. at this size costs 10 times as much! For just one!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reviewed as being quiet.
Cons: I thought it was super quiet, 'till I realized it was not spinning. I also thought it would not initialize under sata IDE, whereas it was just dead. No biggie. My raptor is nice, & runs under sata 6, so all is well.
Other Thoughts: My other reviews mentioned switching from s-IDE to S-AHCI under windows. This worked superbly. Windows re-initialzes ( realy just writes acouple of files to) ALL of your connected drives at one time/ Easy-Peasy (Goo-it)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: an update to above:
There are SOME mb's that allow mixed ide & ahci on the sata ports, like top 2 ahci---bottom 2 ide. (Both of mine don't) There is a proceedure to reset your main drive, holding the win 7 system, from ide to ahci. It's fast, but rather scary. Backup first. Then you can format any storage drives to ahci. Otherwise, use someone else's computer.
Cons: there are no cons.READ FULL REVIEW
