Most Favorable Review
Polk Audio Monitor 50 Black Two-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single
Polk Audio Monitor 50 Black Two-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single

Pros: Extremely fast shipping , as it always is. These speakers sound excellent, very warm and responsive. It is a great compliment to the monitor 30's I'm using for my surround channels, I can hear things I never heard with my old system. Got them on sale for a price I couldn't beat anywhere I looked.

Cons: Size. This is not necessarily a con, I knew how big they were when I got them. This could be a problem for some people.

Overall Review: For those that prefer to use banana plugs all you have to do is pop the little red or black cap out of the top of the speaker connector.

Perfect for HTPC

AMD A4-5300 - A-Series APU Trinity Dual-Core 3.4GHz (3.6GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W AMD Radeon HD 7480D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD5300OKHJBOX

Pros: Low power draw, easy install, works perfect with windows 7 ultimate and an MSI motherboard.

Cons: The only thing I can say that's a con is that the stock heatsink fan sounds like a mini jet engine on the one I received. I solved this problem by modding my little htpc case to accommodate a Kuhler 620 and now it's virtually silent.

Overall Review: I use this and 8gb of Gskill sniper 1666 ram in a small Htpc for my bedroom and it has done a great job with full HD playback using XBMC. I used my OC genie tool on my motherboard and it runs stable all day every day at 4.0 ghz. On a side note this is neither a powerhouse nor a super fast processor, but for applications like htpc you cannot beat it for the price!

Pros: Put it in, made sure it was firmly seated, booted to bios, quickly and easily OC'ed it to 1866, it has been running stable ever since.

Cons: None, it is good ram for a reasonable price.

Excellent Fan!

COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HP) Cooling Fan with Hydro-Dynamic Bearing and Pulse Width Modulation (Orange Version)

Pros: Works exactly as described, simple to install. They are not totally silent at full rpm but it's more of a whoosh sound then fan noise, it's easily tolerable. If you run them at 1400 rpm or lower they are basically dead silent, I can't hear 3 of them over any of the rest of my silent home theater components.

Cons: None , I was well informed about the fans before purchasing and they work exactly how I expected.

Overall Review: Newegg had them to me in just a few days, I have always loved their fast shipping!!

Pros: It is totally silent, easy to install, nice long cables with plenty of plugs for smaller sized systems.

Cons: None for the setup I am using it was perfect.
