JBL SP150 10

5 out of 5 eggs JBL SP-150 Powered Subwoofer 08/09/2015

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.

SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5

3 out of 5 eggs SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 08/15/2014

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.

JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)

4 out of 5 eggs JBL LOFT 50 SPEAKERS (pair) 08/02/2014

This review is from: JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)

Pros: the speakers appear to be good quality and are very narrow in width (barely wider than the 4 inch front drivers).the sound is good in my smallish master bedroom.

Cons: the packaging is terrible. both speakers are in one large box with foam padding at the top and bottom with a narrow spacer around the middle. the box arrived with 3 large holes all the way through to the speakers and numerous dents. the bottom was crushed looking, like it had been dropped off a number of trucks. except for the top and bottom, there is only the cardboard box and a 2 inch air space between the speakers and the impacts. i was suprised that the speakers themselves weren't damaged.

Other Thoughts: speaker placement is critical with these speakers largely dut to the side mounted woofers, one on each side at different heights. i moved them around while listening to different types of music until they sounded right. you can't put them too close to anything to the sides, or the bass goes away.
