My Creative Gigaworks T20 Series II Speakers

The old Creative speakers that I have bought about 3 years ago had become faulty, there was no sound coming out from the speakers. I tried to disassemble the speakers to see whether I could repaired it. But I was unable to know what actually was the fault – its the norm as I am basically a non technical person. So the next best thing to do is to buy a brand new speakers for my PC. I went to the mall to tried out a few speakers such as – Harmon Kardon, JBL, Logitech, Altec Lansing and of course the Creative speakers. After trying out the speakers and buying within my budget, I have decided to buy the Creative Gigworks T20 Series 2 speakers.

Incidentally I bought this Creative model speakers without even testing it out in the mall. I know from the fact that I was pleased with the performance of the previous Creative speakers – so I bought it based on the brand’s reputation, so to speak. I am not an audio fanatic and my requirement of a good speaker is simply clarity and natural sound. Anyway the technical specifications and information of the Creative Gigworks T20 Series 2 are as follows: – 14 watts RMS per channel ( 2 channels), Frequency response – 50Hz – 20 Hz, Cloth Dome Tweeter, Woven Glass Fibre Cone Driver, 2 Way Design, BasXport, Convenient front access¬† and with TV/Game console adaptor. I took out the speakers from the box and placed it on my table. So the first thing that comes into my mind was that it is a well designed speaker. It is compact and the controls are in front – the On/Off volume, treble, bass, Auxiliary in and Headphone out. So that makes things very convenient for me as the speakers sits on the table facing me.

When I turned on the speaker, I am pleased with its performance Рthere is clarity and the classical music that I played had sounded natural. Even when I pumped up the volume, bass and treble Рthe sound clarity was still good. You can in fact filled up a 500 sq feet room with clean and clear music with this speakers. I also tried playing games on my PC using this speakers, again it perform well to my expectation. I think this speakers would also paired off perfectly with my LCD TV; though I did not tried it.  Overall the Creative Gigaworks T20 Series II is a good speakers to have in my home Рit is beautifully compact and yet delivered great sound. There is a one year warranty period given and I just simply registered it online.

Outdoor Walking and Treadmill

A friend of mine bought a treadmill recently and was excited about the benefits of having a treadmill in his home. He felt that it would bring the benefits of exercise irregardless of the weather. A treadmill is an investment if it add considerable value to your exercise regimen and overall health. After all, the cost of buying a good treadmill is not cheap unlike buying a bicycle. A reasonable quality treadmill with all its gadgets could easily cost more than US$1000 and this is not the top of the range. I have seen treadmill with TV mounted on it at the Gym Club and it can also monitor heart beat and measure calories. I wonder what is the price of this treadmill – should be expensive.

Walking on Treadmill

The good thing about having a treadmill at home is that you can exercise any day irregardless of the weather outside. You can do it anytime of the day or night safely in your home. And if it is good treadmill, it allows you to keep track of your exercise performance daily with measurements on the hours, speed, distance and calories. But it takes good amount of discipline to keep track of your performance and even to exercise on the treadmill daily. I know for sure that I would not be able to do it every day because it looks more like work than having fun. I noticed that the treadmill in my friend’s home seems to take up quite a lot of space in his room; making the room looked rather cramped.

Outdoor Walking and Treadmill

Personally, I would prefer outdoor walking than walking on a treadmill. Outdoor walking is more fun and you get to see many things along the way. It is an activity that is not so rigid and confined like walking on a treadmill; and you get to breath the outdoor fresh air as well. I could easily complete a 10km walk happily without feeling that I am working or exercising to keep fit. At the end of the walk, I would normally sit on a bench and look at the trees and pond in the park; which I find it very relaxing. If I want to walk on the treadmill, I prefer to do it at the Gym rather than in my home. In a Gym, I can see many people exercising on different machines, and this gives me the spur or motivation to walk on treadmill without feeling bored. If I am walking on a treadmill at home, I would turn on the TV or the music so that it would not be so bored.

So at this moment, I would not be following my friend to buy a treadmill. It is because I know that I would not be discipline enough to use it every day or even once a week. It might end up sitting there in the room for years till I get rid of it. Outdoor walking is definitely my type of exercise which I truly enjoy.
