4.0 out of 5 stars Needs factory modification to fix prongs, 3 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
read some reviews, made the judgement call on it. so here is my review based on what i read, and using this daily.

so the comments said plates dont sit up right - Answer, yes that is correct. No plate will sit up without falling down wards.
Our solution although not strictly advised, use both thumbs and slowly push the prongs to a slight tilt.

we did this, and all the plates sit at a nice tilt now. Problem solved but this should be a production fix not a home one.

Next comment. Ok so that bottom spout. Issues over clogging with food debris.
Very simple solution, it worked for us - WASH YOUR DAMN STUFF PROPERLY!!!
Painfully simple. Just dont be a scruff and give them a half wash, do the job properly and you wont get debris falling into the spout system.

Overall, despite our home modification for the plates situation, its a lovely dishrack and looks all snazzy and modern if you like that sort of thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars cheap and cheerful,(ish), 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seemed nice in the pics. But a bit cheap and clunky.
Within a short space of time, the bottom clip broke so now its just top lid cover only. You cant expect too much quality in this crowded, mass produced market at these prices. Its just "ok" but not a patch on some other options.

5.0 out of 5 stars You light up my....., 31 Aug. 2016

I cannot state how much i love this!! Just the best thing since sliced bread.
The remote has decent range, easy to select a lovely new shade, bright enough but i can see why people invest in multiples. Mine is in a relatively small room and i only want a splash of colour on one wall, so for me its ideal

Ive seen other designs and models, this for me, was expensive, but its a nice built device, does the job and easy as plug and play.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong item but looks good enough, 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
love it except, i was sent the wrong canvas. I got a boba fett in battle kinda thing and ideally wanted this one. I have placed it on the wall anyway as i couldnt be bothered to correct yet another amazon related screw up with either packing or delivery, but actual product, albeit incorrect was fine.

Print to canvas quality is "ok" .Nothing to write home about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong as bull. Cheap and very cheerful **NOT PC MONITOR STAND**, 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid. Totally bomb proof solid. Only flaw in the package was the lack of assembly instructions

but in fairness, its VERY easy to work out what goes where. Deadly simple, plus the info can be found online if you are especially dim and cant work it out.
No speaker monitor resonance or vibrations, no weird wobble or the like.
Be aware of the plate screw. Make sure you have the monitors set where you want them and stop moving the plates around in circles messing with your desired setting or the screw needs re tightening, so off come the monitors.

Word to the wise, some questions people are asking on here.

THESE ARENT PC SCREEN MONITORS!!!!
They are speaker monitor stands, how you cannot fathom this frankly, scares me. Go search for a safety helmet instead

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal home studio rack, 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was an ideal solution for my needs. I run a ton of synths, rack and otherwise through a UAD apollo. The issue for me was limited inputs hence this brilliant all in one fix.

It has sme EQ channels, their ok, the onboard DSP is a neat addition, doesnt seem to come with any wayward unwanted noise, but its basic and good for little emergencies, but stick to your outboard or trusted software vst effects.

Has every connection type i personally need, sits lovely in the rack, quite a heavy unit though, but then i have no comparison.
A few of the rotary knobs were unevenly stiff, but have since settled in with usage.
No channel lights or mute, can surge when you turn it on so have your monitors off first otherwise your get a nice voltage kick thud through the cones
For the price, for the fact it solves several solutions for home studio and live applications, its a win for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a trap!!!!, 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a huge review here as i dont possess the audiophile ears and gear to give you frequency feedback but i will say the following.
I write music for my day job, i have a room which is painfully 10.5 feet by 9.5 and as close to a box as you can get

I have a huge amount of acoustic tiles plus a pair of these. Factoring this in plus i run through a pair of Focal CMS65 which are front ported, bass honk is an issue.
But the combo of the tiles plus these in the front wall corners, has eliminated that low end drone honk. Hows that for tech speak??
I know, awesome right??
Their very cheap, but they had the desired effect. Used some Evostik adhensive spray and its n the wall solid. int coming down anytime soon

2.0 out of 5 stars well shock horror, this also arrived dented. Why ..., 31 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
well shock horror, this also arrived dented. Why oh why didnt i listen to the reviews??
Bread bin was dented in about 3 places.
The other tins were ok but clearly nowhwere near air tight enough to stop your coffee and sugar going south.

Its a cheap set, but their you have it.

"ITS A CHEAP SET".

Be warned due to the packaging and handling, it will more than likely be dented and you will have to send it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Music Production CPU, 11 July 2016
Ive owned and run this for just over a year now. Having come from a quad core i7-860 which was starting to feel the pinch in bigger sessions.

I run cubase 8.5 pro and have 64gb ram and an all SSD system. I use a UAD apollo as my audio interface. The corner stone of all of this is the 5960x. It is just unshakable on a daily basis. I can load in a huge session and some CPU hungry soft synths and vsti's, and still, its barely using its full oomph.
I can render off stems in a fraction of the time i was doing so on a quad core i7. It overclocks relatively easy too. You wont pull big overclocks like you will on the previous gen quad and 6 cores, the die set is simply generating too much heat for a massive 5ghz closk speed, but i happily push mine to just 4.2hgz.
Why anyone would risk the stability of a system for another 2-300 hz is beyond me, bragging rights more than logic here.

I use a dark rock pro 3 air cooler which is a huge unit but totally up for the task. Water cooling is obviously another option, but unless its a very good 280mm triple rad setup, ideally custom build, you wont see a big drop over the air cooled.Again, simply because trying to hit vey high clock speeds is missing the point of this cpu.

Its aimed at heavy core lifting duties, not call of duty. If you want a gamer CPU, you already have a million other options. Its not a gaming cpu unless you just like telling people you have 8 cores.
But for video rendering, music production, i can categorically say, it was the best decision i ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars And for a good while their, 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just the sexiest "man bag" one could ever want. And for a good while their, i was pretty sure i wasnt a man bag kinda guy.
Sure i appreciate a latte, and its something ideal to store my Macbook pro and other tech. I have a nice beard.

But do i want to be "that guy"....Well i can say, i do not wear skinny fit jeans. And i dont twizzle my beard into a 1900 Pugilist doo.
But i love this old style Pony Express like saddle bag. Its classy from stitch to stitch. Leather feels think and luxurious yet super supple.

Every inch of this feels like quality.

Only negative, my bag is quite a bit lighter in colour than advertised, but.....BUT.i still love it. Def buy one. Just dont be "that guy"
