Pros: Lite-On never seems to impress.
+ About as loud as normal burners (do not notice it where my PC is located)
+ Burns are consistent
+ Only coasters so far were due to user error
+ This is the B model
+ Awesome flash programs out there let me customize things that are not possible on others
+ Works great.
Cons: [none so far]
Other Thoughts: Remember this is OEM, and it does NOT include the SATA cable, or any kind of power adapter. You will need the power supply which has the SATA power type, and a SATA cable in order to use this.
Also works with external enclosures so you can have this bad boy on your desk.
This review is from: MR. COFFEE IDS77 Black Coffee Grinder
Pros: The most obvious one for me was that the grinding 'cup' part fully detaches from the motor base, quintessentially making cleanup a snap. The lid portion of the cup also detaches, so you can further do a more thorough clean. The way the cup is designed, you can twist the lid portion and the sides of the cup are scraped, so you can try to get more of the coffee grinds off the side. Also has a cord wrapping thing under the unit, so if you need to store it, you can just wind it there and less clutter and hassle with another loose cord. Several settings to choose: Fine/Medium/Coarse and 4/6/8/10/12 cups.
Cons: The one major con I see, is that it tends to heat up a bit if you run it more than twice in a row without a 10-ish minute cool down. No biggie if you are just grinding for a quick cup/pot, but this is definitely not an industrial type coffee grinder, so dont push it. There is no option for less than 4 cups, but I see no reason why you couldnt just measure a cups worth, put it on 4 cups, select Fine/Med/Coarse and then holding the button until it looks about right, or just letting it finish. Oh, and that would be the next point: you have to physically hold the button [on the lid] down for it to grind. Not the worst thing since the longest it will grind for is about 15 sec though.
Other Thoughts: I personally use this coffee grinder more for pyrotechnical purposes: powdering potassium nitrate, re-powdering sugar, etc. But it definitely does a great job at grinding up the coffee too! For the price, you really cant go wrong, worst thing would be a 20 spot down the drain, but my coffee grinder has already made up for the investment. Again, just watch the overheating issue if you use it for spices/powders/etc because its easy to become so excited and running it again without realizing the motor is practically on fire. Dont know if this is a pro or con, but as others mention, this is a *blade* grinder, not the Burr Mill method. Lots of people complain, but for me, this is all I really need in a grinder at a decent price: ease of cleaning, reliable, quick, visually looks good, not overly bulky, etc.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z-2300 200 watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
Pros: Where to start...Everything about this set is a 'pro'. I have heard many people stating that the length of the controller/input jack being too short, but after unpacking the Z-2300, I found the length of all the components more than adequate, [might go out and get some cable ties to tidy up the cable once I figure out a good spot for the woofer.] Oh, brings up another huge fact. This sub is beastly...Now, while I am no audiophile, I have heard many sets of speakers, including the higher end such as Bose, but at this price range for this much quality, you just cant beat it. I have read hundreds of reviews of the Logitech Z-2300 speaker set, and even read every forum post about them in the Logitech forums. The set powered up beautifully...Also they THX certified ;) How many speaker sets do you know/own that are THX certified? Bottom line: If you are looking for an amazing speaker set for music/games/movies/whatever else, these are the best value for the amazingly low price...GET THEM!!
Cons: Nothing is ever 100% perfect, but this set is darn close...
Not too much of a con, but this thing [sub] is wicked heavy and enormous, and its just a pain to move...
I personally love it, because I love waking up, booting my computer/iPod and bumping some music and standing beside the sub and hear/feel it pump! although some people might not have as much room for it...
The port of the sub is also quite large, and something could easily fly in [just an open hole] and cause potential damage/noise. Recommended to put it somewhere away from kids/animals, or to place some sort of open screen or mesh over it to still allow function but prevent bugs/toys/pets/etc from going inside. Not a big deal for normal use, but it is *passively* cooled, the heatsink is on the backside, and it does warm up if you play it for extended periods of time at a [louder than normal] volume level, so if you like it loud, buy a decent computer fan to help keep the internal components cool.
Again, not major issue
Other Thoughts: I knew the box would be big and heavy..but wow, haha.
All in all, this has been the best money I have thus far spent on any speaker set of this high quality. Dont be discouraged by bad reviews, there are defective units in everything made: food, televisions, computers, Xbox 360's; yet, look how many are bought and sold everyday. 2 years warranty and support through Logitech, so you are covered if you get a defective one, which what I was a tiny bit worried about, but my set worked perfectly! Some people get a bad apple from time to time, and instead of staying positive and open minded at a second chance, close themselves to such an amazing product! Dont believe the "no mids" its a lie! This set has great sound quality across the spectrum, turn the sub down a little at a time until you get the right balance, even better is to tweak your EQ on your sound card/media player/other input device, or just buy an external mixer/EQ, it will definitely bring out the best in this amazing system!
