Cyber Acoustics CA3001RB 8 Watts 2.1 Speakers
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Using for TV 04/04/2014

This review is from: Cyber Acoustics CA3001RB 8 Watts 2.1 Speakers

Pros: Unobtrusive little speakers
Frequency response has no major midrange resonance (which often sounds like the speakers are in a cardboard box)
Small woofer box gives reasonable bass for size/cost

Cons: Annoying blue LED + electrical tape = fixed!
Woofer amplifier clips at relatively low volume (one reviewer thought the woofer was rattling, but he's hearing the amplifier clipping)
Woofer box produces midrange as well as bass

Other Thoughts: These are excellent speakers if used for the right purpose.

I am using these with a modern thin LED TV which has terrible speakers. These speakers make an excellent fix at a low price. No need for yet another remote in the system for sound. Just plug these in and leave them on.

I used an audio spectrum analyzer and set up the internal EQ on the TV to get a reasonably flat response.

The woofer box must be placed at center of system as it produces much of the low midrange as well, and those frequencies are somewhat directional.

HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very fast
durable (it's in its second computer)
My desktop boots in 28 seconds

Cons: Read/write times drop to less than expected on random small file access in CrystalDiskMark, but it doesn't seem to be reflected in day-to-day use.

This is just fast!

Other Thoughts: I got this for a boot drive on my Compaq CQ50 laptop and it was not impressive.
Works great in my new desktop; all that was due to the laptop.
Test results.

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great Price
Strong signal
Running POE on about 25 foot Cat5e cable without issues

Very flexible operation. What do you want it to do? This thing will do it.

Cons: Complex to set up - mostly due to there being so many options.
Otherwise, it just works.

Other Thoughts: I am using this with an outdoor Yagi antenna.
I can use this over a large area of our yard and have good strong signal coverage.
