Creative GigaWorks T3 (2.1) Speaker System with Powerful Subwoofer
Creative GigaWorks T3 (2.1) Speaker System with Powerful Subwoofer
Price: 118.05

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are numerous good features, the size of the mid/tweeter speakers, the smooth action of the volume control with an intelligent on/off point and the small footprint for the sub woofer.

On the downside, the volume control does not include bass adjustment this has to be set via a control on the back of the sub. Not a deal breaker but awkward if you want to make changes to the levels. Having said this, the bass can be over powering depending on the audio profile. Explosions and short bass peaks have real impact but get a film where the background music is bass biased and speech is lost, which is aggravated by the bass control seeming not to have an off position.

On the other hand, the mid/tweeters are impressive. For a desk top system music is portrayed well with excellent highs and balanced mids, giving a competent sound providing the source is not bass biased.

I am not sure if an audio equaliser would solve the low end frequency bias but I will probably give it a try.

Poetic SLIMLINE Portfolio Case for Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet Black (Final Version)

The case is a replica of the iPad style flap over type and works well to protect the screen and has the nice feature for 'sleep' and 'wake up' when closing and opening the cover.

However the proportions of the folds to support the Nexus 7 for viewing are too small for the units weight. The Nexus 7 tends to either fall over the top of the folded 'triangle' or the cover unwraps. Perhaps time and persistence may get it to work better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite right, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems there are slightly different size interpretations for WF65 coax connectors. The cable spec for the outer sheath is 4.8mm, so with the screening folded back a '4.8mm' description connector is appropriate. However, it seems there are '4.2mm' versions and although the difference might seem negligible they are almost impossible to fit. Even with silicon grease and pliers the outer 'crinkles' when screwing on the connector.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 14 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Continues to works well but has only been in use a few weeks. I say this because of the reviews for other types of PSU's include a high number of early failures. The unit has a well made appearance and the interchangeable connectors fit firmly.

This unit was a fraction of the price the OEM required for their replacement supply, at nearly 90, so good value.

I have given four stars and not five as there is no information about the output voltage selection. On each of the connectors is a voltage stamping and as a number are the same size and there are three terminals, I assume, there is a feedback element in the moulding.

Finding this original was quite difficult but despite the long search it turned out to be a real winner for those not old enough to have seen when first released.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it could be, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately, inconsistency with different operating systems, annoying incomprehensible messages and identifiers plus lack of technical support once the standard questions have been asked and responses given, makes this product a disappointment.

Be aware, if you have a problem, you will be bounced around by different support personnel whom all ask the same questions and ask for the same information. They appear not able to take in the history and the time between responses can be more than ten days. Finally, if they cannot provide an answer to your problem they stop communicating.

4.0 out of 5 stars A chip off the old block, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant continuation of the original trilogy. I thought this might be a poor replacement for the Matt Damon storyline and character portrayal but it proved to be equally absorbing.
