This review is from: 36" 2.1-Channel Sound Bar System with Wireless Subwoofer
Pros: -Like all Samsung products, it looks good.
-Solid amount of controls on remote
-Plenty loud enough and plenty of bass for my situation (see other thoughts below)
-Wifi Sub, less cords
-Sub EQ adjustment
-Comes with metal mounting bracket. It's about 6 inches long and mounts to the center of the sound bar. Soundbar just hooks on and rests on the mount.
-You can power on/off and do other cool things IF you have the 2013 Samsung TV....apparently my top of the line 2014 Smart TV isn't compatible...if so, then my tv's directions nor the sound system's directions aren't helping...
-Sound quality is solid, great for the price. It could be better if you could manually adjust EQ settings....
Cons: -I've had a difficult time trying to get multiple devices hooked up to this thing the way I want and I'm somewhat unsuccessful.
-Only has 1 HDMI-in, 1 HDMI-out, 3.5mm jack, and direct output jack
-Not the greatest instruction manual...can't believe I actually used one lol
-I don't have HDMI hooked up, just the 3.5mm out...so I can't speak for the virtual SS.
-Lack of EQ...only preset adjustments...bleh
Other Thoughts: So I live in an apartment (about 1,200 sqft). This system is PLENTY loud enough for the entire place. I could disturb neighbors if I wanted. Sub EQ ranges from -6 to +6. I keep it on +3. It's not a very highquality sub and lacks punch but it does put out. The volume goes pretty high as I keep it on 20 (in the middle-ish) and I can hear it over most things I do across the apartment. I can't STAND preset EQ settings....
This system is definitely worth $150 or less, which is what I got it for.
This review is from: EVGA Flexible 3.5in 2-Way SLI Bridge Model 401-MB-0033-01
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.
Went on very easily.
Flimsy, so if the length isn't perfect you can make it perfect! lol
Other Thoughts: I've used this for my Nvidia 670 FTWs and haven't had any problems after about 8 months of use. Very simple to install and activate in the Nvidia control panel. I had lost my Asrock SLI bridge (no clue how but I did) and so I spent a lot of time making sure I bought the correct/best replacement. This one seems to be great. So buy with confidence!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -great price
-pretty good downloadable software
-puts out nice sound quality
-comes with voice altercation presets (fun to joke around with people in voice chat programs)
Cons: -would be nice to have color coded input jacks (minor con)
-i feel like the software is missing a feature or 2 that would really make this card a steal for the money.
-does not fit perfectly into mobo & tower.
Other Thoughts: PLEASE READ THIS: The main reason why I gave it 4 eggs is because the card does not fit %100 snug into my mobo. It goes in far enough so the gold teeth disappear but it doesn't reach all the way for the card to be flush with the back of the pci slot. This really worries me, but it's been fine so far (I've had this card about a month now).
ATTENTION/WARNING!!! Do not expect to find a great pair of True/Real 5.1 headsets. Just tried the Cooler Master Sirus & Sirus-S are horrible (dont believe the hype). Ok sounding mic & bad sound quality. Everything sounds like you're in a tin trash can. I'm pretty sure the Roccat Kaves aren't any better. The only headset that I've yet to try are the Razer Tiamat 7.1. I'd have to go without using 7.1 and just use 5.1 but true surround sound is SOOOO much better than stereo and virtual surround sound for any type of gaming. So the hunt for a good pair is worth it (if you successfully find a pair). I might just have to be content with my awesome Sennheisers (stereo headset).
I used to have the Turtle Beach Earforce HPA2's back in the day....they were pretty solid for the 3+ years they lasted. Great mic & surround sound audio quality. Too bad Turtle Beach went down hill and makes cheap headsets now mainly for consoles.
