This review is from: LENMAR DLCE5 1080mAh 7.4V Li-Ion Canon LP-E5 Replacement Battery
Pros: Cheap, powered the camera on
Cons: Using lightly over several years. It never had as much capacity as the stock cannon battery, and the flash would tank it after a few shots (maybe 20 at the best).
Canon charger refuses to charge it now, while the canon battery is still running strong.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Don't waste your money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iStarUSA WM660B 6U 600mm Depth Wallmount Server Cabinet
Pros: Price is about right for what it does. I needed an enclosure that supported 19 inch rack equipment and that is what I got. It was well packaged, not that that matters.
Cons: Arrived in great foam packaging, was still damaged, big ding in the top of rack about palm sized. The material is cheap and nothing is square, my hardware rocks on the rails it came with, and the door hangs askew.
Additionally it is not as pictured and does not come with blue stripes.
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
Pros: After building a home theater with stadium seating and a 7.1 150W / ch sound system I quickly found that I needed to elevate my front L/R channels. I searched for some time and came to the conclusion that I could buy these speakers for the same cost of some decent speaker stands.
The high location of the tweeters really help to get the sound stage up and off the floor and the audio quality from these speakers is more than good.
Balance, clarity, and power all shine in this set with a few notable problems.
Can be bi-amped, to run as separate channels.
Cons: These speakers are not the most sensitive and seem to take a good amount of power to drive. Additionally, they produce a very slight hum (not the normal 60hz hum either). It appears that the speakers are highlighting a flaw in my source or amplifier that the original speakers didn't show.
They also seem to have a different power curve than my existing speakers. That is to say, they get louder or softer, faster than the other 5 speakers in my setup. Many times I find that the center / surround channels are too loud in soft scenes, and not loud enough in loud scenes because of the way these speakers respond.
BOTH of the above issues are because the speakers are BETTER in terms of power handling / dynamic range / frequency response.
Not the best BASS, as expected... Get a sub-woofer.
Other Thoughts: I cannot deduct points for my cons. These speakers are amazing products in their own right, they just don't blend as well with my system as the original front L/R. Would I replace them? No. They do what I was looking for, and I am willing for them to stick out a little since the front L/R handle 90% of the sound information anyway.READ FULL REVIEW
