Proficient Audio MaxTV MT2 All-In-One TV SoundBar with Bluetooth - Each (Black)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Has audio trouble with built in TV Netflix & digital output. 09/07/2014

This review is from: Proficient Audio MaxTV MT2 All-In-One TV SoundBar with Bluetooth - Each (Black)

Pros: Awesome sound for what it is and the price.

Bluetooth is nice.

Cons: Does not learn your own remote
Remote control is tiny and one of those bubble membranes types
Hence, you will really need a learning universal remote at some point.

There is no volume level indicator, just a flashing light telling you it is being used.

There is no easy way to know to what settings it is on. Which input? Which audio setting? Hard to know - you have to watch the single LED flash when setting. After set up it doesn't tell you in any way.

No surround decoding so it won't playback anything but 2 channel audio. It either comes with a converter or you can get one from the manufacturer for free.

Speaker requires a digital signal converter to 2 channel to playback surround encoded audio.

Other Thoughts: If you can put up with not knowing how things are set up on the unit and are ok with a lousy remote control situation(use a universal), then this is a great sounding unit. It is kind of weird.

Regarding the Netflix, when using the digital output of your TV to the converter, for some reason Netflix apps on many smart TVs output a digital audio surround signal that is not understood by the included converters. An better converter is rumored to work ok though.

Any other smart TV apps that output digital surround may be problematic as well.

lenovo LI2721S Glossy Black 27
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap, has VESA mounts, AH-IPS panel

Cons: Do a search for this model and you will find other reviews and picture showing this is not an edgeless LCD and in fact has a fairly significant gap between the edge of the screen and bezel. It will not look like the picture shown. Just an FYI. this misleading advertising is inexcusable.

EVGA 512-P3-N977-TR GeForce 9800 GT Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Card went bad after 3 months, no cross shipping with EVGA 04/12/2009

This review is from: EVGA 512-P3-N977-TR GeForce 9800 GT Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Fast 3d. Quiet

Cons: Card started showing weird artifacts in all modes - 2d & 3d. Seems to be heat related. EVGA makes me pay to send it to them for repair with no cross shipping. Must be w/o card for quite some time. No cross shipping? stupid.
