Seagate ST3500526AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs Couldn't Resist buying it 10/24/2015

This review is from: Seagate ST3500526AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: A 7200 RPM, SATA 6, 500 GB drive is a nice size drive for practically anything the average person would need. That being said, the price of this drive was so low that I couldn't resist buying it. After receiving the drive and looking back, I probably should have bought several more.

The drive appears to be brand new drive even though it is labeled as being re-certified. A check using a disk utility indicates that number of power-on hours as 1 which is about how long I have used testing the drive which further supports the statement that this is a new drive.

The drive is very quiet in operation and runs very cool. All in all this is a very nice drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive as a spare drive to have around should one of my other drives fail in operation. For my purposes a 500 GB drive is the right size drive. It has a large enough capacity for my purposes and is usually cheaper than the larger drives. I normally use a 500 GB drive for system backups and miscellaneous file storage although in the past I also used this size drive as the primary drive in my computers. I used to worry about a drive being re-certified, but I have purchased enough of them that I am not concerned by the classification. I have been very pleased with all of them, just as I am sure that I will be very pleased with this drive. Re-certified drives is all that I purchase anymore.

If you are looking for a nice sized hard disk to replace a smaller drive or to use as a secondary drive in your computer I believe that you will be pleased with this one.

Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

5 out of 5 eggs My second purchase 10/12/2015

This review is from: Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: Bass response from the sub-woofer is controlled by a knob on the satellite speaker. This arrangement allows you to precisely control how much bass comes from the sub-woofer.

The speakers have grills that protect the speakers.

Cons: No manual or instructions come with the speaker system. If you want a manual you would have to go to the manufacturer's website.

I am not sure who certifies these speakers as good because the way that the speakers are packaged do not look like manufacturer's packaging. The speakers and sub-woofer are wrapped in bubble wrap and then stuffed into a plain brown box.

Other Thoughts: This review is based upon the second set of speakers that I purchased. The sound produced by these speakers sound very clear with little or no distortion. Over all these speakers are well worth the price that I paid for them. I would certainly recommend them to anyone wanting a good set of speakers at a reasonable price.

4 out of 5 eggs Nice General Purpose Sound System 10/06/2015

This review is from: Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

Pros: The satellite speakers have grills over the pair of speakers in each enclosure. This keeps you from sticking your fingers into the speakers accidentally. This is a big improvement over the Logitech Z323 speaker system.

I also love having control of the sub-woofer easily accessible so I can increase the bass whenever I want to. The control knob is on the satellite speaker. On the Z323 system the knob is on the back of the sub-woofer which is next to impossible to get to.

I feel like the speakers produce excellent highs and lows with no distortion that I can hear. I have not tried it at full volume, but at 50% it is too loud for me anyway. I doubt that I would ever play it at full volume anyway.

Cons: The only complaint that I have is the fact that the down facing speaker in the sub-woofer is uncovered. It is very easy for your fingers to come in contact with the speaker. You have to be extremely careful with the sub-woofer.

The system came in a single brown box and contained no instructions what-so=ever. If you need instructions you will have to go to the Logitech site and download the manual.

Other Thoughts: All things considered this is a very nice set of 2.1 speakers. If you are looking for a nice set of speakers with ample volume and a very good sound you won't be disappointed with this package. I am quite satisfied with this purchase.
