This review is from: Jensen JTA-230 3-Speed Stereo Turntable
Pros: I received this as a gift from a friend and its just fantastic.
-Portable & compact
-#1 best selling turntable on other online shopping sites
-It has a pitch/speed adjuster that you can use if you feel like the vinyl is playing too slow or too fast.
-The lid has cutouts and can be closed while you play large LPs
-Ideal for casual listening in small settings.
Cons: -I feel like this turntable would be more ideal for beginners since the internal speakers don't necessarily allow you to hear the greatest possible quality of a vinyl record so if you plan to throw a party, consider investing in a nice pair of speakers.
-There is a Volume knob and a Tone knob. The volume knob works just fine and gets loud but not to the point where it'll rattle your windows. But the tone knob appears to only make a subtle difference to whatever is being played. It feels as though it's more of a treble booster/reducer.
Other Thoughts: -If you are just getting into vinyls and turntables and are on a budget, I feel like this would be a very good turntable to start with.
-I would also recommend buying a Carbon Fiber brush to dust off your records before every listen (yes, even if they're new) because you'd be surprised how fast vinyls get dusty.
Pros: Awesome desktop, lots of ram, insanely fast
Allows a free update to Windows 8.1
You can easily download a few third party apps to make your Windows 8 desktop become as Windows 7-like as possible.
Cons: Comes with Windows 8
Setting the desktop up was a bit confusing at first.
Other Thoughts: To the reviewers saying they had issue connecting their monitor to the PC, I had the same problem. The monitor would not display what was connected to the desktop. So I called customer service and the first representative wanted to initiate the return process because he thought it was a defective computer, but then I got hung up on. So I called AGAIN and this time I got another representative that told me there's more than one port for the monitor. Those of you that were having issues most likely connected to the ports on the back center of the PC. But there are a few more towards the bottom and THOSE were the ones that were able to display properly. Hope I helped.READ FULL REVIEW
