Pros: Airs out wine to perfection! Easy to clean and easy to use! It's an absolute must for any home, bar, or home bar! Having it sit on its display stand attracts much WANTED attention!
Cons: Not sure if I overlooked it or anything, but it doesn't appear to be machine washable! Despite its ease of wash, I got lazy on most nights and just tossed it in with the other dishes to wash. It has a couple of cracks now, but still in working quality! The product is thick and durable! My own fault, and I am warning others in case anyone decides to be lazy!
Other Thoughts: I don't mean to initiate any kind of discussion, but I reiterated what another reviewer said whenever friends and guests of mine asked what aerating wine with this does... "it turns a ten dollar bottle of wine into a thirty dollar bottle!"
I did side by side taste tests with some guests and we all preferred the aerated glass indefinitely. It was almost like a different wine! Delectable, really.
Pros: Plenty of media keys, macros, programmable, etc. Very convenient and useful keyboard in the long run.
WASD and Arrow keys interchangeable with regular keys, which makes regular internet surfing easier.
Cons: I'm not entirely sure if I have a defective product or it's common, but the space and shift button (left and right) only work when pressed fully. As in, for someone who types relatively quickly like me, I would have to use extra pressure when pressing those two keys.
I can work with the space button, since I hit the middle of the key, but that solution does not work with the shift button.
Other Thoughts: The shift button only working when using more pressure than other keys is a turn off for me, to be honest. I simply can't give this anymore than three stars if this is how the board is supposed to be. On a lighter note, imagine if I was playing an MMORPG and my shift button is what I use to heal (I do that in most MMOs I play)! I'd die so many times!
I would say this keyboard is worth no more than twenty bucks with these in mind.
This review is from: Logitech Z506 75 watts 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
Pros: I've had no problems except for connectivity issues (which were on me, if anything). I don't know if I'm lucky or if my ears are just not hearing right, but I play my music and videos (5.1 FLAC/DTS audio in many of the videos), and I can hear everything clearly, even at higher volumes. The bass is good enough to disrupt the glass bottles I have sitting millimeters apart from one another!
Cons: All of the wires are color coded and connecting things are relatively easy, I know, but it doesn't look like my computer's motherboard has the same color-coding the speakers use. Took me several trial-and-errors to figure out what goes in what.
Also, there is no manual with this! So do keep in mind some kind of knowledge on speakers is very useful.
Other Thoughts: Surround sound may need to be selected in Windows' settings for these to work properly. I don't consider this a con on the speakers or anything. But having a manual would have solved this problem much quicker.
I suggest Googling how to change your sound settings to support 5.1 surround sound!
