This review is from: EVGA Flexible 3.5in 2-Way SLI Bridge Model 401-MB-0033-01
Cons: Touch Pricey
Other Thoughts: Purchased when the complimentary stiff bridge that came with my motherboard was DOA. All for the best, that bridge did not fit well and this one was like a dream.
Do not buy into the urban legend that the flexible bridges have lesser performance or are generally in any way inferior. They are actually superior because both do the same thing just this one is flexible and will conform various sizes.
Just ensure that the bridge is fully seated and flush, for best performance and to negate any chance of screen flickering/distortion. That's all there is to it, great product.
Used it in my 2x GTX 670 FTW SLI build, saw almost 100% performance gain. Good stuff.
This review is from: Logitech X-140 5 watts 2.0 Speakers
Pros: Great Sound
Simple and easy to use and setup
High Quality Design
Cons: Weak Bass
Is not surround sound
Is not a fancy soundbar
Little room for expansion
Other Thoughts: My cons list is a comprehensive overview, thus my rating. These are excellent speakers in every way in my opinion but I have friends that buy into the whole "sound system" thing, and this product will likely disappoint such enthusiasts.
The speakers, while larger than typical "cheapo" desktop speakers, will not rumble your house's foundation or flex the glass in your windows when cranked to 11. There's simply not power present for that. Nevertheless, I've never "needed" them past roughly 50% volume in a 18'x16' bedroom where they are typically used with a desktop PC, and halfway is pretty jammin',
Also, these speakers are not really a square one for audio equipment. Though this is where my knowledge begins to run thin (not a sound system enthusiast), I do own the product and can tell you the speakers themselves have no outputs and only a single input, cornering off and chance of additional components to the system, such as a small sub to beef up the bass.
Which brings me to me to my next point, the bass is not going to impress anyone. Though I don't understand the recent trend of bass setups that could literally flex and bow industrial-grade plexiglass, be forewarned that these will not do that. I occasionally listen to some Dubstep and the sound from these speakers is clear and crisp, with bass present at a listenable level. These will not thump hard enough to give you heart palpitations from two blocks over, much to the dismay of some users.
Overall, a grand product in my opinion. I picked them as a high-quality alternative to screen-mounted audio, because it wasn't an option on the screen I had selected, and was anything but disappointed. They're typically used in gaming, and occasionally music, and are phenomenal. That said, if you plan to setup a skydiving simulator off of the percussive force, or wish to gradually piece together a wicked sound system, this is not a good place to start. Although it is a relatively economic placeholder for damaged speakers or until the big build is done.
Pros: Excellent mouse for the Price
On-the-fly toggle between 800 and 1600 dpi
High quality mousewheel and design
Beautiful but modest aesthetics
Other Thoughts: Though some reviews stated the finish on the mouse became worn quickly, I have not seen this problem in any way. I've owned the mouse just over 4 months, I'm an avid enthusiast gamer, I play just about every title that comes out, and the mouse still looks and performs like it did the moment it left the box. Any accelerated wear or problems I would chock up to user abuse, hands down.READ FULL REVIEW
