This review is from: Sony BDP-S1500 Streaming Blu-ray Disc Player
Pros: so far this player is perfect for me. i replaced my older Sony blu-ray player, AND my older media player with this unit. i just wanted it to play blu-ray / dvd discs, along with movie and tv files from a flash drive. it has worked perfetly so far for this. setup is very easy with no problems.
Cons: none, but i don't use it with my internet or network, so can't comment on that.
Other Thoughts: it's much smaller than my older Sony blu-ray player, but larger than my older media player, and it replaces both. easy to fit in my tv cabinet and eliminates the need for two remotes. I'm storing my older players as back-ups, just in case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: JBL SP150 10" 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer
Pros: works well with my JBL Loft 50 tower speakers.
Cons: none so far. Tried it 2.1 with my Loft 50s and then with my Loft 40 bookshelf speakers. plenty of bass for 2 channel. i had to move it around till i found the right location for good sound.
Other Thoughts: i bought this sub to match my JBL Loft system for a 5.1 secondary system. all i need now is the Loft 20 center speaker. this is the recommended sub for the Loft speakers. i've tested it as a 2.1 system with the Loft 50s and i had to turn the bass down on the sub. sounds good.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black
Pros: the drive itself works well and has lasted about 2 years with no problems for backup storage.
Cons: i took one look at the sealed, black plastic case and removed the drive (warranty void). it was obvious that the drive would overheat with a plastic case and no ventilation, so i put the drive in a Rosewill external case with a built-in fan. problem solved. my Seagate and WD external 3.5 drives have vents, so i keep a table top fan that blows directly on the vents.
Other Thoughts: i don't understand Samsung's thinking on this case design. i would be amazed if it didn't fail with no ventilation. worked fine once i replaced the case.
using this drive is much more expensive when you have to replace the case though.
