I bought this to use with a pair of 2 6x9 500w Pioneer speakers. and WOW, it gets the job done.
No problems with installation. I am using it with an input level at aprox 40% of its power and i get a really nice, loud, distortion free sound. Very Happy.
Ok I agree with other reviewers. THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT, QUALITY OPTICS, VERY NICE VIEWS.
So why 4 stars? Well, here is why:
1.- About design, IT LACKS AN EYEPIECE RACK, so you need to have a little box to place eyepices when not in use.
2.- Starpointer EZ finder works great on bright objects (planetary) but if you need to find m51 that does not have any bright objects around it you'll see what I am talking about. It should come with a nice optical finderscope.
3.- Lacks of a handle to move telescope around.
4.- Should come with an extra eyepiece. 25mm works great but for planets you will need something like 10mm eyepiece or a barlow lens. I mean, planets are primary targets for novice and experienced, why not give them a nice first impression. COME ON ORION, ADD AN EXTRA EYEPIECE WITH THIS GREAT TELESCOPE.
The pros you know them, M42 I could see gas areas never seen by me with other telescopes. WOOOOOOOW.
Jupiter I could see about 6 bands, great sharpness and contrast (with my 6mm orthoscopic eyepiece) woooooooooooooow.
FINAL WORD: Great scope but do your self a favor and buy along with this a 7 to 12 mm plossl eyepiece or a 2x barlow, you wont regret that.
This is an item I can give the "keep it simple" award. BUt not just that. I)f you add the problem free installation and the nice display it produces, then we have complete winner. NOT FOR GAMING. I use this for MS word on a 1600 x 900 monitor. Very nice colors and sharpness. Also google earth had improvment here....Read more
I have used acer 17 inch lcd, hp lcd 19 inch and this one. this is a nice, sharp monitor, basically same quality as the others. About sound, it has very dimm volume. Well you can listen if you are about a meter away from the monitor, but I did not buy this for the speaker system. As a monitor it is a very good one....Read more

I was looking for an inexpensive guitar amp to use at home with my Cort X-6 and boss pedals. Amazon offers this one under the name of "15 Watt Guitar Amp with Reverb".
I've never heard of Harke amps for guitars. Other current options were the line 6, the Crate and the Behringer, but this was only 83 dls and had distortion and reverb, So I decided to give it a try.
What I liked: Size is 13x13x8.5", very portable. Sound in the clear chanel is very nice and enjoyable (volume level 3 to 5 , I never use more).
The reverb effect does a good, modest job (if you want more reverb you should buy an effect pedal).
I never use the integrated distortion because the lack of control, unless you use a foot switch which can be plugged in the back of the amplifier, but for test purposes I can say is average, sounds like boss DS-1.
What I did not Like: You can really hear the reverb spring when you move the amp. Sounds like something broken in the inside but you get use to it.
Another thing I did not like is that when you turn off the amp half a second later you can hear a not so loud, horrible "pop". This is a common issue in some amps but not in Crate amps which were the ones I use to work with.
I like simple things, the line 6 has to much of everything (chorus, flanger, reverb, delay, etc), The crate with reverb is a very nice unit but is more expensive.
This is a nice amp, I like it, I am happy with it and it does the job, of course I am only playing at home for me and my family.
