My new speakers arrived yesterday but they’re not the only new addition to my home office…
More Storage Space
Earlier today my wordrobe was turned in to a camouflaged shelving unit… here it is on the outside, just a regular old wardrobe. Nothing fancy.
Open the doors however and it’s now a full fledged storage unit.
The perfect solution to help me organize everything and keep my desk clear from clutter. On the top shelf we have a variety of stationery… pens, markers, staplers, post it notes, tip ex, paper clips, sellotape, envelopes, elastic bands, scissors… stuff that’s just handy to have.
The second shelf is holding all of my binding equipment. Third shelf is holding few baskets of random stuff that i haven’t managed to properly organize yet. Fourth shelf is the folder shelf. All important documents, college stuff and paperwork go here.
At the bottom we have a few books, reams of paper and i’ll keep a few hard drives and stuff there too.
On Sunday i ordered new speakers from amazon and they arrived yesterday. Great service from amazon. Lightening quick delivery. Why pay for next day delivery when you can wait two days and save €10+? In fact, any time i’ve dealt with amazon, delivery has been rapid and their service top notch.
The logitech x540 speakers i got arrived in a surprisingly small box. The subwoofer is a good bit smaller than my last subwoofer but the satellite speakers are much nicer. Fancy ‘swivel’ stands, nice classy appearance… they look more pleasing on the eye than my last set.
In terms of sound, not much difference between my last set of Creative speakers and these Logitech ones. Not that i was expecting much – they’re both pretty similar on paper. It’s just nice to be able to walk out of the room without having to worry about the volume magically increasing which is of course the reason why i got them… my last set were on their last legs. I did get 5 years of daily work out of them though.
The only criticism i’d have of the logitech x540’s is that the cable length of the wired remote is very short. Likewise with the power lead. So short i couldn’t keep the subwoofer on the floor. I had to put it behind my monitors but i had a bit of wasted space back there anyway so it’s no big deal.
So all i need now is a bin, some more extension leads and i still have to get my white board up on the wall.
