Overall Review: >Cons: Now I have to figure out what to do with the hundreds of dollars I saved buying this monitor.. hmm.lifes tough. Send it my way. Problem solved.
Some friendly advice.
Pros: Let's see: 1) good cost vs performance ratio with these. 2) *decent* sound, not high end though. 3) easy to set up; not many cables 4) nice handy remote control
Cons: Now for the bad news: 1) These speakers sound *horrible* compared to Klipsch 2.1s 2) short speaker cords. 3) Hard to explain, the sound doesn't sound as "full" as the Klipsch ones I've owned for years now. It's not even close people.
Overall Review: These aren't bad, but if you want BEST in this class of speaker (hands down), get these instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836119008 The extra money is worth it. I've owned the Klipsch for 6 years now; they SPANK these Z-2300s. If you have nothing to compare these against, I bet they sound great. Hench all the great reviews here. Put these side-by-side against the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1s and it becomes obvious that these speakers are in a lower class than the Klipsch, for sure. I'm going to keep these but when these die it's back to Klipsch.
Pros: These drives are great! They run cooler and FASTER than previous Samsung F1 7200 RPM 1TB drives that they replaced. Not much slower than my Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB drives either. Great deal, get them!
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: Do yourself a favor and get these! Get a baker's dozen, they're so cheap! 5400 RPM turning you off? Well since they're FASTER than most 7200 drives don't let that bother you. Do you think the Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB drives aren't as good as Velociraptors because they aren't 10,000 RPM? Of course you don't! Because they are faster! Same with these drives. These drives, at 5400 RPM, are absolutely fast, stable, and cool enough to serve as your main drive.
No mid range is correct
Pros: Great speakers for the price.
Cons: Mid range is weak. I see these reviews on here where people are saying "no mid range is a complete lie". You know what? You've never heard really good speaks, that's what that tells me. Example? Klipsch 2.1's SPANK these speakers in the mid range. But I got these for the price and don't regret it. They sound great provided you've never heard higher quality speakers.
Overall Review: Owned these bad boys for over a year now and they are excellent speakers so don't let my mid range comments deter you from getting them. Still the record needed to be set straight on the mid range capabilities of these speakers. Remember, the Klipsch cost twice as much as these, so they should be better and they are.
This monitor is AWESOME
Pros: This monitor is totally SWEET. This thing is H_U_G_E compared to my Viewsonic 19" LCD. Playing games on this thing is like playing them in another world! This thing makes games come alive. Get this monitor, you can't beat it for the price! I got this thing for free shipping in ONE DAY from Newegg, you guys rock! This monitor has: 1. no dead pixels 2. a huge, MONSTEROUS screen 3. great colors 4. no backlight bleed through 5. excellent connection options (HDMI, DVI, VGA, etc). 6. great response time, NO ghosting in games at all.
Cons: None at all, I'm 110% satisfied with this purchase and don't regret it for a SECOND.
Overall Review: For the price you'll thank yourself OVER AND OVER for buying this baby. You won't be disappointed, this thing ROCKS! Highlyh recommended.
