Allyn should run SSD tests with Registry cleaners running in the background to show how much they Freak with system performance. That vid would go viral in the Old folks homes!

Or just even on an Out of the box system.

For those of you that check out Alex's pick of the week,you might also want to check out Starbound. It's kind of similar to Terraria,but you have many different star systems and planets you can explore. In Terraria you only have 1 planet to play around on. Really cool game IMO.

I tried Starbound, and while the graphics are definitely better (still pixel art, but nicer pixel art) I found the gameplay much less involving.

Question for Ken. I was looking at that soundbar a few months ago and saw a lot of negative user reviews due to a high crossover frequency, causing low frequency speech to swap between the bar and sub. Have you encountered this problem? If so, how bad is it for you?
