I'm going to attempt to use them as TV speakers so I'll post how that goes.

That's how I would use em too.  I was thinking about picking up a soundbar but this would be a whole lot cheaper if it pans out.

I think I own the same set of speakers, I like them. Only downside are the wires... and my smartphone does interfere with them at times (only because I it sits on my desk near them). I'd get another set for my TV, but don't think my store has these in stock, just a miscount.

That's my thought and more flexible probably.

I was at two stores and both were off by one on them. One said one and had zero the other said two and had one.

I picked up the 2 TB MyCloud for myself and a 4TB Seagate Expansion external hard drive for my dad.  I was looking for a nas for my music and other files.  I'd like my streaming devices to be able to access my media even when my computer is asleep.

 

I thought about those logitech speakers, but I don't need them.  I managed to get some Bose speakers from Target on clearance a while back.

A bunch of Targets near me are showing the Mycloud 2 TB in stock and the Z506. Maybe I can finally find something I have a use for, won't this be exciting.

If it's the same as what I suspect happened at one of my stores, someone took them to customer service and decided to not buy them (price didn't ring up right or something) and then the employees checked it back into their inventory so now they have an incorrect count.

I got the speakers this last weekend and they are great on my PC.

I also got the $90 Sony sound bar with sub. That thing is amazing for the price

The hard drives are not worth it for that price imo

Well if you use those as TV speakers, you may need to adapt them a little bit if you want full 5.1 sound as they only have the three 3.5mm jacks. It'll be "surround stereo" sound. Sadly, if you wanted optical or digital inputs you'd have to pony up a whole lot more bread before you can get that (which in turn, it would be worth more buying an AV receiver with speakers at that point). 

 

If you already have an AV receiver, there may be some individual RCA outputs on the back for 5.1. In that case you'll need a set of 3.5mm to RCA adapters to make it work. 

 

If you'd like to void your warranty and just for s***s and giggles, you can also cut the 3.5mm jacks off, strip the rubber insulation, and use the center wire as + connection and the surrounding insulating wire as - connection. 

 

 

 

You can probably tell that I've done this before......long before I had a job and would jury-rig whatever I had to do something.

Is it the Bluetooth bar with woofer?

Did they already pull it from the app?  I tried to search for it and came up empty.

It's been so long since I had a 5.1 speaker set for PC I forgot it was separate plugs for each pair of channels.  Guess I'll run it in a 2.1 configuration then and see how it goes.

Found a 20th Anniversary PS4 Controller in clearance the other day at my Target. It was only knocked off $7, but I still felt like it was worth picking up. Couldn't find it listed on their site anymore, so it would obviously be YMMV.

It was worth it, they've gone up in price since the availability dried up.  I regret getting the red ones over those now.

Micro impressions of the soakers now that they're set up and the Overwatch update is finishing. They're a while lot crisper than the TV speakers obviously. Sov and Get were both wrong as usual and they can be connected with all five speakers to a TV with a 3.5 mm jack. Box days it's supposed to do simulated surround like that. I also like that the center speaker has a built in thing to let it mount on the top of the TV, very handy. Sub by default is way too high. Have the main speaker control set to half way and the TV volume controlling the output level and it seems to be working pretty well so far.

 

Edit- A few games in and I think they're well worth $30 and a very decent alternative to a far more expensive sound bar.

Damn that sucks. It should have been cheaper. I got one for $54.98 this afternoon.

Wasn't able to find a z506, but spotted a Razer Deathstalker Essentials Keyboard for around $35 and some Turtle Beach X32 for $50. Don't have the DPCI, but they were in Diamond Bar, CA.

Considering getting the Seagate 4tb expansion drive. Anyone have experience with it? I've always been a WD guy. If I go for it, the only store that has it in stock is 46mi away from me, so I would lose a little bit of the value in time/gas too.

I've had mine for about a year hooked up to my Xbox One and have had no problems. 46 miles is a lot for something that may or may not be in stock.

I would agree with you if I blindly drove there. I called ahead and confirmed they have it, a rep put it on hold for me.

For $25, it's practically disposable.

Some dumbass posted the could storage device on SD.  The store that had 5 last week is down to 1, I was going to wait for it to drop to 75% off but I guess I'll have to move now.
