This review is from: ONKYO HT-RC360 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver
Pros: Good sound
Lots of features
Large number of ports for various inputs
Cons: Automatic calibration didn't with for me
Zone 2 speakers only take analog inputs
Sounds stopped working just after 2-year warrantee expired
Other Thoughts: This receiver worked great until it just recently stopped stress having intermittent sound problems. You would have to restart it to reinitialize the sound to get it working. Finally that stopped working and you had to do a factory reset to get it too work. That just recently stopped working.
Also the net feature would often freeze and then wouldn't work for a long while after restarting the receiver.
Pros: - Cheap
- Drive series is excellent
Cons: I tried two of these drives in a RAID 0 configuration for games and after a couple months of use one of them failed on me and I was forced to buy two of the retail versions instead. I used the remaining drive in a RAID 5 and now it seems to be causing some faults there too.
Other Thoughts: If you're doing a RAID, go for the retail versions and save yourself the grief.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Good Connectivity
- High Bandwidth
- Good firmware
- feature rich
Cons: Setup was a pain at first but I think that had more to do with my cable modem. However, the Cisco Connect setup wizard oversimplifies things and thus would not let me set up the router without having an internet connection.
Additionally, using the advanced setup wizard (if you're used to browser-based setup like I am) tends to screw with cisco connect.
Also, for some reason you cannot set the guest access privileges or password outside of Cisco connect. Interestingly, the guest connection appears as an open wireless connection but if you open up a browser, you're prompted for a password there.
Other Thoughts: I've done a bit of online testing (no LAN benchmarks yet) and have easily been able to achieve very nearly the speed of a wired connection with the wireless. Pings are very low for the router and are within variances verses a direct connection to the cable modem.
Overall this is a good modem but the Cisco Connect software is highly annoying for more advanced users.
