Most Favorable Review

Great Subwoofer

Klipsch Reference SW-110 Subwoofer, Black Pica Single
Klipsch Reference SW-110 Subwoofer, Black Pica Single

Pros: Tight, punchy bass that is great for music, but also capable of handling movie effects with ease. Enough power to shake a room, but not excessive, and still pretty clear at high volumes, not boomy. I have tried all kinds of music on it, from country to rock to rap, and it sounds great, regardless of what I throw at it

Cons: None

Overall Review: Don't be fooled by the 10' cone, this will shake a room.

Most Critical Review

Disappointed, two DOA boards

ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M4A79T Deluxe AM3 DDR3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: great setup for crossfire at x16

Cons: received first board DOA, power lights lit and fans run but no activity. RMA'd it for a second, DOA, same problem. I RMA'd this one for a third, hopefully this one will work.

Overall Review: For Asus having such a great reputation, i'm disappointed. getting two DOA boards in a row is pretty rare, it seems like they may have had a bad run on production of these boards. If the third board doesn't work i'm going with tried and true gigabyte.

Fantastic Floorstanding Speakers

Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" Floor-standing Speaker Single
Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" Floor-standing Speaker Single

Pros: I never knew what I was missing in music until I listened to a pair of these. Unbelievable clarity. The upper range is accurate... not thin or brittle.

Cons: The low end is lacking a bit, but a good subwoofer makes up for it. The cabinet isn't fancy or ornate (some people like beautiful looking speakers)

Overall Review: Got these on sale and it was a bargain. Highly recommended.

Great Surge Protector

TRIPP LITE AV88SATG 8 Feet 8 Outlets 2880 Joules Energy-Saving Surge Suppressor
TRIPP LITE AV88SATG 8 Feet 8 Outlets 2880 Joules Energy-Saving Surge Suppressor

Pros: Sturdy cord... 8ft is plenty long enough. I have used this for over a year without any problems, and all outlets still work perfectly. The power saving feature is great for a family room media center setup.

Cons: None

Overall Review: The isobar surge protectors by Tripp Lite appear to be better made, but for the price point you cannot beat this

Solid enclosure

Rosewill RX358 RX-358-U3B Full Aluminum Cover, metal tray 3.5" Black SATA I/II USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Rosewill RX358 RX-358-U3B Full Aluminum Cover, metal tray 3.5" Black SATA I/II USB 3.0 External Enclosure

Pros: works, cools the hd well, usb 3.0 sturdy construction, easy installation

Cons: price is a bit expensive, I got it when it was $35,

Overall Review: make sure you format the hd before you install into the enclosure,

Simply Amazing

Sennheiser - Stereo Around Ear Headphones (HD 595)
Sennheiser - Stereo Around Ear Headphones (HD 595)

Pros: Sound quality is outstanding. Not only do these headphones have a crystal upper range and powerful lower range, but the sound resolution is superb. These headphones allowed me to hear nuances in music that I never realized existed. for gaming, especially in fps, they are amazing. as the one reviewer put it, you can hear somebody sneaking up on you and from what direction. comfy, as in lay down and immerse yourself in music for hours comfy

Cons: I would say expensive, and bulky, but they are worth every penny. it spoils you, you find flaws in all other headphones and stereos you listen to (even bose speakers).

Overall Review: just to remind people, these are an open design, so you can hear everything around you,
