YAMAHA RX-V371 5.1-Channel AV Receiver

4 out of 5 eggs Yamaha RX-V371 5.1-Channel AV Receiver 07/15/2014

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V371 5.1-Channel AV Receiver

Pros: This is a decent starting audio/video receiver. I purchased this for $149.99 about 2 years back and it worked fine for a while.

Cons: I reset to factory settings and now the ARC and CEC functions do not work. I cannot get my TV audio to play through the 5.1 system. This is only a mild inconvenience because I can just do analog audio and use the 5.1 channel enhancer instead of true 5.1, but I bought the 5.1 system for a reason.

Other Thoughts: If you are like me and spent way over your budget on your speaker system just get this inexpensive receiver to offset the price. I will eventually move up to 7.2 but until then this will work for my needs.

5 out of 5 eggs Seagate Expansion 3TB 04/10/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Just to confirm, the drives inside these are model number ST3000DM001 (Barracuda). I purchased 3 of these drives about 10 months ago on sale for $99.99. The OEM 3TB drives with the same model number without the case were $30 more at the time so this sale was a steal for me. I also took them out of their cases and put them into my Freenas 9.2.0 x64. (Please note that taking these out of case voids warranty). I already had 3 2TB barracuda drives in there. These are the perfect drive for a low budget NAS system. You get great quality and longevity with these drives.

Cons: However, one of the 3tb drives I purchased was having read issues. Writing was perfectly fine but it wasn't reading properly. I did a few basic tests and fixes and it eventually worked fine. This had me worried because I already broke it out of its case. If you are going to take it out of it's case test it extensively before.

Other Thoughts: My current Freenas build has 3x2TB + 3x3TB each in its own volume in raid 5. 2TB volume = 3.57TB useable space, 3TB volume = 5.36TB usable space = 8.93TB total. I will eventualy add 6x4TB of the same model to max out this case when I need it.

Pros: Great Ram!! I got this ram back in the good old days when they didn't destroy your wallet! (Purchased for $23.95) I wan't more, but I am going to wait until it goes down (Hopefully).

Cons: None so far. This RAM is great for your computer needs

Other Thoughts: Why did RAM prices go up so much? Makes me angry.
