Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player Bundle- 2 Motion Sensor Controls Plus 6 ft HDMI Cable & Angry Birds
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: One previous reviewer said Roku 3 didn't have Ethernet connection. W R O N G , it does. BTAIM (be that as it may), I still think this Roku 2 XS is a much better deal

Cons: None, maybe no headphone jack on remote

Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player Bundle- 2 Motion Sensor Controls & Angry Birds
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: EZ setup, EZ channel addition, very intuitive, 1080p beats wii

Cons: Pointer does not control interface, just for games

Other Thoughts: Just cut the Time Warner ripoff cable, streaming direct from PC and NOW with the Roku, I am very content. Kids did not stage insurrection, and yes I AM STILL alive with no cable. Unit was marked B stock, but still had shrink sticky wrap stuff on it. definitely brandy new

ONKYO TX-NR414 5.1-Channel 3-D Ready Network A/V Receiver

5 out of 5 eggs Works great for me! 03/29/2013

This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR414 5.1-Channel 3-D Ready Network A/V Receiver

Pros: Purchased for $199 - great deal!. Receiver needed firmware update which went OK via ethernet. So far no issues. Setup menus not as intuitive as Yamaha RXV373 (purchased earlier but overheated and began acting buggy-unit returned)and sound is on par, maybe a bit inferior to my ears but sound stage effects not as processed sounding as Yamaha's(totally subjective of course). On the other hand, more inputs, network capability, separate zone 2 output, good tech support (3 calls answered wihin 30 seconds by technically astute Onkyo staff) made this a winner for me. It appears the older reviews regarding inferior firmware are not relavent as this unit is AOK with most up to date firmware. Time will tell if I get 10 years out of this unit as I usually do before they become obsolete or dead. No regrets, good recovery Onkyo.

Cons: Needed firmware update out of box, but that went well seamlessly

Other Thoughts: Dollar for dollar and feature for feature, value is unbeatable and believe me, I CHECKED. No regrets, glad I pulled the trigger. BTW, NewEgg is 100% behind their products, no problems whatsoever re: returning buggy Yamaha receiver.
