Pros: Very good sound for the price; easy to set up and use
Cons: Would be nice if it had a remote
Overall Review: These speakers are the gold standard for me when it comes to reasonably priced desktop speakers for gaming and music listening. Every time I've strayed, I haven't found a set of speakers that sounds this good at this price.
Pros: Solid sound, decent mic, good functionality
Cons: Not excellent sound; a little flat sounding in some frequencies
Pros: Works perfectly. No signal interruption or loss of quality as far as I can tell
Overall Review: Don't listen to what you've heard--this cable will work fine and dandy for sending an HDMI signal 35 feet.
Pros: Good price, reasonable performer. Super easy RMA process and awesome customer support by ZOTAC.
Cons: Not ideal in terms of performance, but still solid. Card died on me but the process of getting a replacement was really painless. THANKS ZOTAC!
Pros: Cheap, easy to set up
Cons: The keyboard feels really flimsy and every so often I have to re-jigger the batteries in it to get it to power on again. Minor but still an annoyance.
Cons: Not super high quality, but definitely not bad
Overall Review: If you want a huge monitor that won't blow your budget it is very hard to beat this!
Pros: Pretty good price (depending on what you're after), excellently well constructed, plays basically any modern PC game on medium or high well. Well-endowed with memory and a particularly excellent processor.
Cons: A litttttle bit deceiving. Even though it's discounted by $120, you could still purchase the same parts for much less money, meaning you pay 100-200 bucks for construction. There are better deals.
Also, a less technically savvy consumer might not realize that though it is a "gaming" PC a lot of the parts are not as good as you'd like and there is less room for upgrading in the future than there should ideally be. The memory is of a lower speed and quality than you'd probably want for a gaming PC, though there are 8 gb of it. The video card is underpowered for a gaming PC (you could get a dramatically more appropriate card for an extra $50) and is going to be outdated and unable to play new games coming out on higher settings within a couple years. The power supply is a little weak, leaving less room for upgrading vid card and hard drive space.
Overall Review: Seems like a better deal than it is, though it'll definitely get the job done.
