I was checking out B&W speakers on Best Buy's website when I realized something was seriously wrong with the description...

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Bowers+and+Wilkins+-+5%22+2-Way+Bookshelf+Speakers+% 28Pair%29+-+Painted+Gloss+Black/1276892.p?id=1218246219095&skuId=1276892

You can tell someone who had no idea what they were talking about described the features lol. It blows my mind that people like this have jobs. I picked out my favorite features:



quote:

2-way speaker system
Sounds like 1 source rather than several separate sources.

Flowport dimpled port design
Offers reliable use.

Vented box system
Ensures adequate ventilation to keep the speaker cool.

8 ohms nominal impedance
Effectively conducts power.




Yeah, these speakers sound like one source, not several separate sources and they conduct power! Plus, you gotta remember they put those dimples on the port so the speakers are more reliable to use (whatever that means)!

The worst of them all is Amazon. The pictures for the products are the wrong product half the time and the description does not match the product quite often. If you ever decide to buy anything from Amazon please realize you cannot trust anything on that site - go research the product somewhere else! It's pathetic. But hey - profits are up!

When ever possible, you should buy your gear from an independent retailer, not best buy. If you have to buy from bb, either know more than the sales rep flunkies or bring a friend who does.

My favorite is "Vented box system ensures adequate ventilation to keep the speaker cool."

ROTFLMAO!

I remember a Kodak page describing the merits of Plus-X Pan B&W film. It was hilarious, and Kodak no longer manufactures B&W paper!

I used process color using Panalure paper at home.....getting a B&W print from a color negative. I'm not sure if it was a variable contrast paper or NOT?
These day? SCANNERS predominate. I'm still scanning 3 decades of film and transparencies.
Can't get drivers for my Mac, so I scan into my laptop and later move the files in bunches over to my mac........and the Laptop is USB1, so it takes a bunch of time.
