This review is from: Soundstream H-300BAR 2.1 CH Slim-type Soundbar With Wired Low-profile Subwoofer
Pros: Got it on sale for $95, which is a really good price for this unit. Sound bar sounds nice and clear, the sub even has a nice kick to it and gives depth to the sound. Very easy to setup as well.
Cons: Have to change the volume with the tiny remote that it comes with, would have been nice to be able to set up to change it with a TV remote. Connector cords could be a bit longer. Minor inconveniences though, not nearly enough to take off an egg.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to accompany a $1300 tv we got with poor base speakers. Saw it on sale, and decided to give it a try and am not disappointed. For best results, turn the TV volume all the way down and simply use the sound system to control the volume. Having the TV speakers up along with the system makes it sound worse because most likely the TV speakers aren't as good. Haven't heard of Soundstream before buying this, but glad I gave them a chance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ThinkCentre M57P Desktop PC Core 2 Duo 2.3GHz 2GB 80GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium
Pros: Got this nice little unit on sale for $150. Can't really go wrong with Core 2 Duo 2.3ghz for $150, considering Win7 and the processor alone is twice that. Runs very snappy even on a basic 7200 RPM HDD. Can even run some non high profile games on decent setting with a low profile vid card. I got a GeForce 210 card in it so could hook up via HDMI to a big screen TV and watch movies. I mainly use it to run some decently high demanding flash application pretty much all day and the CPU stays at around 45 deg which is really good for an Intel processor and is VERY quiet. Windows 7 with all the drivers came preinstalled, which is nice and hassle free. All I had to do is input the Win7 cd key.
Cons: With a graphics card installed, can't use on board VGA plug, it simply doesn't show up. Since the case isn't big enough, I had to get a low profile vid card on which I had to take off VGA port so it would fit. My small TV/monitor only has VGA and component plugs so I had to get a HDMI to RCA cable, but that's no biggie.READ FULL REVIEW
