This review is from: GOgroove SonaVERSE O2i Multimedia Gaming Computer Speaker System w/ Glowing LEDs , Volume Control and USB Plug-N-Play Design for your Laptop , Notebook, Ultrabook, Desktop & More PCs
Pros: Sound itself is quite good especially considering the size of these speakers and their price. Hooked up to a sub-woofer and the bass is very good. For games they are simply fantastic and the lighting effect is just superb.
Cons: The cords are rather short especially considering they originate from the left speaker.
The bass on the speakers themselves can sound somewhat flat, and I list that here as it can be considered a con. But considering the bass on these is designed to be passive it's generally not that bad, and can easily be mitigated by hooking these up to a sub-woofer like any that come from the 2.1 speaker sets.
The volume control being in the back is a minor pain but not enough to knock an egg for.
Other Thoughts: These speakers are really good for the price. Powered via USB and having an led effect they look rather nice. Connected to a 2.1 speaker sub-woofer the sound is amazing on a desktop.
When hooking it up to a woofer you will need to adjust the speakers volume as it can create an electrical feedback sound. It isn't all that loud so turning the speakers themselves down just a tad can make it go away without really effecting program volume.
This review is from: Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition (VN10006W2N) White and Black SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans - 1 x 200mm side, 1 x 200mm top, 1 x 200mm front, 1 x 140mm rear
Pros: Amazingly Spacey
Great cable management options
Cons: Heavy. I know the handle can support it but I just can't get it out of my mind that the thing could snap (not shoddy construction just the thing is a monster with all hardware in it).
The back panel seems to not have a lot of room. There are lots of ways to snake cables but the most efficient seem to cause some trouble when attempting to place the back panel back on. Compared to the Level 10 GTS which had larger spacing in the back panel it seems strange they lowered it for this one. Panel still fits but just takes a bit of pressure to put back on.
The headset stand feels a bit flimsy. It only sort of locks into place. I guess they wanted it to be removable but just comes across as feeling a bit cheap. Not enough to knock an egg for but just a point of contention.
Call it nitpicking but not integrating the two USB areas into a single header is slightly frustrating. Liquid cooling system needed one USB header so until I get the necessary part some of my USB ports are nonfunctional.
Other Thoughts: With those 2 main cons I still didn't feel the need to knock an egg from it because what is does it does AMAZINGLY well. The airflow capabilities are just astounding with this thing and it's monstrous fans and several ventilation ports.
Most of the complaints are just, considering, trivial and more convenience vs function.
Pros: Great air flow
LED's are not too gaudy but visually pleasing.
Have not noticed them being loud in the slightest
Other Thoughts: Used them to replace the stock fans on my Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme (sacrificing some CFM for aesthetics because I am OCD). The sacrifice has been negligible allowing me to overclock my CPU up to 4.55 ghz and remain stable and have a rather good thermal margin. Bought 4 of them and after upgrading my case to the Thermaltake Level 10 GT placed 2 on the radiator and a third as a bottom intake fan. All I can say is that these things just work.READ FULL REVIEW
