WOW, 4 GB for 79 bucks !!!!
Pros: Good timing for DDR3-1600 Low voltage to run, 1.6v Good looking heatsink
Overall Review: Not really a flaw or anything, because AMD Phenom II does NOT support DDR3-1600 unless you overclock the fsb, which cuz me a lot frustration(and reboots) trying to run it at 1600 with the specified timing. (it will just not run at my motherboard with that timing) For my motherboard ASUS M4A78T-E I can run DDR3-1600 with 11-11-11-30 timing. But when the ram running at DDR3-1333 I can tighten the timing to 7-7-7-18 1T without any problem and reduced the voltage to 1.6v. And 3Dmark06 score @ 1600 and 1333 is practically the same 17612 vs 17540 respectively.
Nice little sub
Pros: This is probably one of the best powered flat "subwoofers" out there. But this "subwoofer" is not really a subwoofer, but more of a midbass woofer, don't be surprise this thing wasn't able to produce any sound that is loud enough below 35hz. Also Boss falsely advertise their sub, this baby only put 200 RMS, not 400 RMS.
Cons: You'll eventually want to switch it out for a real sub, the one come in a box and a separate amplifier. This sub will not able to hit the really low frequency (20 to 35 hz).
Wow, i love it
Pros: Brought it together with Dr. Dre the Beats earbug, this little bad boy plug right into your USB port on front or the back of your PC, Windows 7 instantly recognize it and put it as default audio output device (no driver installation necessary, but in order to get the full feature of the device, like the crystallizer, you need to install the driver come with the device) change the default depth from 16 bit to 24 bit, and hook it up with my JBL speakers, wow, all I can say it's amazing, compare to my old onboard audio, the background track sounded a lot crispier, and vocals sounded clearer, bass is deeper but not distorted.
Cons: Only 2.1 output The manual looks like tourist manual.
Overall Review: I played James Blunt's "Your Beautiful" at 192kbps, the guitar sounded amazing, you feel like you are sitting in front of him listen to him perform live. The next test is Alicia Key's "Doesn't Mean Anything" at 222kbps, the vocal stands out but not overpowering, I can still hear the soft piano in the background. Last test is Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" at 183kbps, the bass is deep and crisp, no distortion, also I heard a lot detail I never heard before with my onboard audio. Totally worth the money, just make sure you have decent sets of speaker or headphone to use it with it. Creative you are awesome.
