AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great bargain, excellent performer 02/21/2014

This review is from: AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX

Pros: We all knows the pro's

Cons: And the con's

Other Thoughts: What you really want to read is what I use this CPU for. My PC is constantly being used in some form or fashion. I'm usually transcoding 1080p high bit rate bluray rips to DVD, downloading torrents, mining for bitcoins, and using my PC as a real time transcoding server that outputs video via Apple's Air Play to my televisions. Often these tasks all run simultaneously - it's taxing on the CPU and the fan does get a little loud, but it keeps up! So with all that said, if you're a guy like me who's always putting your rig to serious work you'll find this processor an excellent solution AND bargain.

And now to the fellow who claims the "pins melted into his motherboard". That's a ridiculous statement. If true, you'd be the FIRST person EVER to have the gold contact pins melt. 18K plated gold (which is used for the contact pins) has a melting point of 1700 degrees F. Most CPU's overheat and fry around 100C (or ~200F). So do you really expect anyone to believe that your CPU hit a temperature of 1700F? An incredible claim. I'd love to see a photo.

TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Beware... high amp devices will interfere 01/20/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV 500Mbps Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: See cons below

Cons: This is just a follow up on an existing review. As one other person has pointed out, high AMP devices (vacuums, microwaves, etc) will interfere with the connection (i.e., slow it down) when they're in use. I tested a high amp carpet cleaner around my home and found that the further the socket is from a powerline adapter, the better. When connected to the same socket, your speeds will plummet to about 1mbit. The good news is these types of devices aren't used for long, so it shouldn't be that big a deal.

Other Thoughts: I've had these about a month now... 100% reliable. Only issue I've had to date is the carpet cleaner, lol.

Roth KN-1992G TV Soundbar
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Outstanding clarity and balance 01/17/2014

This review is from: Roth KN-1992G TV Soundbar

Pros: OK, first the good:
-Excellent sound clarity
-No distortion below ~75% volume
-Great bass for a small system
-7 total speakers
-Very nice remote, high quality
-Bass adjustment on the remote
-Composite & 3.5mm cables
-Comes with removable feet to put on a dresser or furniture
-Comes with wall mounts (sort of)

Cons: And now the bad...
-Bass distortion over 75% volume
-Plastic housing doesn't help w/ distortion
-One of the units I received was missing a wall mount
-Poor packaging (my other unit was cosmetically damaged during shipping)
-Only one DSP setting
-No HDMI inputs (optical only)
-No bluetooth (although I use AirPlay anyways)

Other Thoughts: I picked up two of these on neweggflash for $80 each - an excellent deal. I've got a couple wall mounted TV's in my bedrooms that sound awful with the built in TV speakers. I've been shopping for soundbars for a while now and these fit perfectly for my needs. Both are hooked up to AppleTV's via Optical audio output. I was attracted to these because they don't have a subwoofer (I don't need or want one).

Overall I'm extremely pleased with the sound quality of these units below 75% volume - it's far superior to anything I've heard from Sony, Vizio, etc. But once you get over 75% volume you start to get distortion. It's to be expected in a subless system with plastic housing. Still, I can't imagine a scenario where I'd watch a movie at over 75% volume, so whatever.

My biggest gripes though are the damage to one of my units during shipping and the missing wall mount. The cosmetic damage is relatively minor, but still somewhat aggravating. It's such that it's not worth the hassle of getting an RMA, shipping back and waiting for a replacement. So I guess I'll just live with it. The missing wall mount is another sore spot. The wall mounts have a unique design and cannot be found at a hardware store. I've written Roth and requested they mail me one... I'm awaiting their response.

P.S. to the guy who posted below me that his built in TV speakers sound better. I cannot imagine a scenario where TV speakers would be superior to these.
