    Hey Linus, this is a video request. I had watched this DEdownload video some days ago: dedownload.net/item/video-H09SEyoE8yY.html It is a DIY video where a guy teaches us how to replace DVD Drive of a laptop with an SSD or HDD using a Hard Drive caddy. It has great amount of likes but I don't trust him as much as I trust you. Neither he told us about the data transfer speed through Hard Drive Caddy. Could you please make your own video on this topic ? Let's check whether it will work or not. The hard drive caddy costs near 5 USD. I'm waiting for your response for this comment...

    The RGB is ugly as hell lol, but I guess it's ok if you can turn it off. But then again, if you can turn it off, it still cost a dollar or two to add it to the speaker, which means I rather put that dollar on the sound. But I guess all kids wants RGB.

    Meh, just get some Genelecs. Under a grand for a pair sized for personal listening, under 10 grand to equip a decent-sized room for 7.1. Anything more expensive is going to give you massively diminishing returns on your investment, unless it's a large performance venue, and you're getting line arrays.

    I would like to point out at 2:50 when you talk about powered speakers is slightly incorrect. Powered speakers have one amplifier for the whole unit. and have a passive crossover. Capacitors and coils in most cases. Active speakers have active crossover and a dedicated amplifier for each driver in the unit.
