This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1123-K 7.2-Channel 4K AV Receiver
Pros: Great sound, intuitive on screen interfaces (although I'd prefer higher graphics), Pandora and PC streaming, control via Android app (I love being able to turn on the receiver from the bedroom), great sound, speaker volume leveling via MCCAC, great sound, and green friendly. Seriously, this thing seems to use less power than my old home theater in a box.
I have the following connected and use frequently with no problem:
Home theater PC
Cons: For the price I don't see any serious cons.
A feature I'd like to see would be if the receiver could have separate volume settings for each input.
The volume change accelerates too fast after holding down the volume button for longer than a couple seconds.
Pros: Battery when fully charged from the wall will charge my Galaxy Nexus once, with a bit left over. Feels light, but thats probably because the internal battery doesn't appear to take up the whole case.
Cons: I left the charger outside in direct summer sun for 12 hours and it was only able to charge my phone 20%. In an emergency this might be enough I guess.
Other Thoughts: The manual isn't very clear. In order to charge your devices the battery pack must be powered on. To do this hold the power button for approx three seconds. Do the same to turn it off when you are done charging your phone so the LEDs don't drain the battery.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Bower SCB1450 Digital Pro Series Sling SLR Backpack
Pros: Construction and materials seem to be just fine. Sling type backpack awesome for allowing access to camera without taking off pack. Allows room for charger, extra lens, extra memory cards, and filters/shades/misc.
Cons: You wont be carrying much other than your camera supplies.
Other Thoughts: For the price this is fantastic.READ FULL REVIEW
