Pros: 5.1 sound! Music Fans: The front three main speakers got TWEETERS! So you get all three, tweeters, mid-range drivers, and one heck-of-ah sub-woofer for that deep bass that rattles the walls. Gamers: 5.1 sound,this set was built for EAX games,just totaly awsome so far with my own eax games like Call of Duty and Pirates! DVD Movies: 5.1 Surround Sound! The Wired remote is really straightforward and easy to use,plus it has a jack for headsets. You can actualy control the Sub-woofer with the remote switch from all the way on to all the way off,great feature that.
Cons: Cons? nothing serious. The rear speakers are wired up diffently than the front speakers, must plug the bare end of the wires into them, no big deal realy, not enuff to deduct one egg for it.
Overall Review: I think the rear speakers are wired the way they are with accidents in mind, if the wires get pulled out somehow it will not destroy the whole speaker. Just re-strip the end of the wires and plug them back in! DVD Movie Audio: I use PowerDVD 4, at first i got this wierd noise from the audio, enuff to be a noticable distraction,so to make long story short, from powerdvd menu,goto config,choose audio,at the choose audio output, choose "use spdif", and you will get crystal clear movie sound! discovered this by trial and error. These Speakers sound Awsome connected to my Audigy4. [Not the Pro version, but the less expensive version that is strangley abscent from Neweggs SB line-up so far.}
Older card but still Good.
Pros: Great dvd movie playback! Can handle any office application with ease. Great with pre-2004 games. PNY--good reputable company. Reliable. Never have had any problem with a PNY product.
Cons: Pretty much obsolete for after 2005 games.
Overall Review: Don't let the 3 stars trick you too much! Three stars just for its Age. Near Top Of the line card back in 2003/2004.
Best of the Audigy class SBs'.
Pros: Have had mine for over a year now,no problems of any sort at all. Lives up to the claims on the box.Can't ask for more than that. Just a Great Basic SoundBlaster. Games are Made with SoundBlasters in mind! DVD movie sound is awsome with good speakers&subwoofer. The "record what you hear" feature is awsome! Bit of a learnig curve with the software,but once you figure it out, the software has some really cool stuff. Best of the Audigy series. Would buy again.
Cons: No complaints,,can't think of any. Ok,here is one,,It's the Last of the Mohicans,errr, I mean Audigy series,
Overall Review: This card is the BEST low cost alternative to the X-Fi there is. 'nuff said? Be sure to check creatives web site for the latest and greatest drivers&stuff.
A-Data PC3200 1Gig with Heatspreader
Pros: Rock solid performance. Got two of these now,,bought them at seperate times,,,no problems what so-ever. Works just fine in my MSI K8MM-V motherboard.
Cons: Cons=prisons are full of them;)
Overall Review: Apparently Newegg now has a second warehouse in New Jersey, That means no more long waits for deliveries for those of us who live east of the Mississippi from Neweggs Los Angeles warehouse. Paid for three day UPS shipping, from NJ to MI in three days! Just love it when a plan comes together.
Good as Any
Pros: Moves air. Lights up case. Choice of power connections. Actually Includes mounting screws! usual Antec Quality. Even more spectacular if you have a side window for your case!
Cons: Dims with age,,my new one outshines the 3 year old fan. Not the LEDS mind ye,,they are still bright, its the plastic that changes color and gets duller with age.
Overall Review: Installing the mountings crews was No Problem at all for my 12v Black&Decker Cordless Drill with the torque setting on 24lbs.
