This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1123-K 7.2-Channel 4K AV Receiver
Pros: Very up to date with the very easy to use app remote control, air play and various ways to connect and play sound and music thru the receiver, they should have named it a SMART receiver because that's what it is it connects to the internet very easily and can be controlled with your tablet or smart phone. I never use the manual remote, the app is much easier to use to control the receiver. I think it took me less than 10 minutes to set up this receiver (I was switching out an older pioneer receiver which went out after it took a whole cup of orange juice spilled into it beware these receivers have an open grill on the top of the receiver and it's easy to spill things into the receiver) I am very proud of my purchase the receiver does go very loud I have it hooked up to a set of polk audio 510s which the speakers gave lasted me about 6 years I'm planning to buy another set of rm510 to get the 7.2 effect instead of my current 5.1 set up.
Cons: because of the vent on the top of the receiver you should always have it in a cabinet or under a table, it will be tempting to sit things on top of the receiver such as a cup or food which will very easily get inside the receiver it seems that dust will easily enter it as well. The on screen GUI lacks a modern feel, but the free app makes up for it in controlling the receiver.
Other Thoughts: This receiver is replacing a poineer I bought back in 2008 it's so much more advanced it's like it was made by aliens but easy to use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love my monitor, I don't understand why all the manufacturers don't emphasize on resolutions higher than 1080p I will gladly pay more for more resolution I personally think 1080p looks grainy it really is an old technology now, this monitor looks 10x better than my HDTV and it puts out more vivid colors, how ever it does come at a price, lower resolution video simply is not made to be displayed on this monitor anything below 720p looks fuzzy and its almost unwatchable, however if you are looking at 1080p video it does look very very sharp, also I have the latest $500 video card and with video games it does look superb but the extra pixels means lower frame rates.
Cons: I am happy with my purchase, but as with technology getting better and cheaper I think as time goes on more manufacturers will catch on to the higher than HD monitors making the price drop.READ FULL REVIEW
