This review is from: VIZIO E70-C3 70" Class 1080p 240Hz Smart LED HDTV
Pros: Great picture, good smart TV features and a very good price. Just make sure you have enough room to place seating back at least 8 feet from the TV, otherwise it can be a bit too big.
Cons: My only complaint is that Netflix had a snafu earlier this year that resulted in the need to re-set user credentials and re-enter them into Netflix apps. For whatever reason, I just get an error when I launch the NetFlix app on the TV. I read in a forum that I can run an ethernet cable from the TV to my router and disable WiFi which will cause the TV/app to re-run the setup (and allow me to enter the credentials) but I've been too lazy to do it, I just stream NetFlix from my Roku instead.
Other Thoughts: When I bought this TV over a year ago the price was incredible compared to other brands and the picture quality on this TV is wonderful.
I don't watch a lot of TV but I will Netflix binge once or twice a year and do watch a few movies a month and every time I turn this monster on I am impressed and pleased with the purchase.
This review is from: Sharp HT-SB602 2.1 Channel 310W High Power Sound Bar
Pros: This sound bar fits my 70 inch LED TV aesthetically. I use it to listen to music as well as Netflix binging and movies. It can get loud without distortion for hours. Unlike cheaper sound bars this one has been flawless since I installed it
Cons: Not the sound bar's fault but I wish I could bring out the "center" channel vocals so dialog is clear with some movies without the super-loud sound when action breaks out. With past 5.1 systems I could turn up the center channel individually. Still, not a huge issue, just hate risking waking up others in the house when watching stuff late at night.
Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this sound bar to others. It's a great addition to a large TV and can fill a room with tons of sound. Well worth the price!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel RAID Controller Card SATA/SAS PCI-E x8 8internal ports (SASUC8I)
Pros: Great controller for Linux based file servers. I've been running this controller attached to 8 1TB drives in one of my file servers since Sep-2011 with no problems. Works great with N82E16816116099 - 3Ware SFF8087 cables. I run the card as an 8-port JBOD and use software RAID and it has worked very well for me thus far. I can stream 4 1080p movies simultaneously while still conducting light duty file server tasks (backups running over WAN link, NFS mounts from many sources etc).
Cons: This controller card isn't going to win any races. Not the fastest but consistent and reliable.
Other Thoughts: While not the fastest card out there (on-board controller actually seems a little faster) it can't be beat at this price point. I wish I there was a PCI-E Gen 2 model with 6Gbps link speed at a similar price point. If one doesn't show, I'll go ahead and pick up 1-2 more of these for my next file server build out.READ FULL REVIEW
