3 out of 5 eggs Better Quality Speakers? 12/02/2016

This review is from: Kanto Living YU2 Powered Desktop Speakers, Glossy Gray

Pros: These have the capacity for higher volume due to the built-in amp, and they can get loud if you want.
Has a sub out option.
The customer service is off the charts excellent from Kanto, they really do care about your purchase.

Cons: First:
If you are an audiophile, do not buy these. The mids are very flat, the highs are very bright, and the bass while very good for the size does not deliver.
For $ 75 these are a good deal, but for $150 they are very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: I am no audiophile, but I do have a good ear for music, and what these deliver is sub-par quality for the price. Perhaps a sub-woofer would help, but only if it is one that you can adjust output. There are ways on my desktop to adjust sound in playback, but you would think that for the price it should not be necessary.

Pros: Everything I need for gaming @ 1080, mighty quiet unless pushed to the limit, small form-factor, sips power like a lady, looks mighty good in a small case build.

Cons: Sad that it cannot be SLI`ed, but oh well.

Other Thoughts: If I could justify the price of a 1070 for the amount of gaming I do, or the resolution I use (1080) then I would have bought one. But for me this works just fine, out benchmarks the 970, and should be all I need for a while. The 6 GB RAM is excellent as well, and should serve me for a long time.
For anyone doing an mATX/miniITX build that wants the most performance in the smallest size, you do not need to look any further. The only way to beat this is by water cooling a higher priced card, so if you are debating the cost or size just stop now and hit the Ad to Cart button. Unless you are waiting for it to be back in stock, then keep waiting, it`s worth every penny.

Pros: This drive got good reviews, not to mention the good specs, add to that the nice style and I was sold. Once I got it - imaged it (Macrium Reflect - it`s FREE!!) and fired up my pc, the next and only thing to do was benchmark it and see what I bought. Here are the official #`s:

Date : 2016/06/29 20:14:06
OS : Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 [6.1 Build 7601] (x64)
That`s good enough for me to give it 5 eggs for sure.

Cons: An SSD mounting bracket would be nice, but I knew it did not come with one, so not a real disappointment.

Other Thoughts: If it had a little better sale price it would be a steal, but if you are thinking about buying it.....pull the trigger.
