This review is from: Harman/Kardon AVR2650 7.1 Channel A/V Receiver
Pros: The receiver is physically beautiful. The volume knob is not a cylindrical prism, but a ring on its side, the interior of which is illuminated white. The power switch in its off state is amber but when on it's white, as well. The remote is also Euro-beautiful.
It sounds lovely through my speakers.
Internet radio is awesome because it's not Pandora! You have a ton of options internationally but you need to listen to them all - see cons.
Cons: Connectivity: No wireless. Must be connected directly to the router with cat5.
The front USB port doesn't support the use of thumb drives for anything other than firmware updates. I hoped to be able to plug a USB drive into that port and play music off it.
Internet radio interface is clunky. As I said, you've got a ton of stations to choose from but you need to go through and listen to them all and that means setting aside MenuTime™. This is fine but if I could [SCAN] international stations I'd be happier.
Other Thoughts: I love this receiver.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fast, efficient and problem free.
Cons: Came with no mounting. Wish it had.
Other Thoughts: Love it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I would give it 7 eggs if I could.
All cores get busy in a hurry, especially when gaming. But it sips power and behaves like an i7 with virtualization.
I'm glad I read about this. I'm using this in an MSI Z77MA-G45 for gaming along with a GTX-760.
The Windows Experience Index calls this proc my weakest link @7.7.
Cons: 01 Steal a dog from your local park. A nice one but not too nice.
02 Walk into a pub and complain to the barman about money problems and how you'd sell this rare, prizewinning hunting spaniel in a moment to be able to make ends meet.
03 Ask the barman to watch the dog and go up the road a while.
04 Have your mate come in after you and offer to buy the dog for tons of money.
05 Return later and reiterate your willingness to sell the dog - the barman will try to take advantage of your financial woes in obtaining this "prizewinning" dog from you for nothing so he can punt it on to your friend for huge money.
06 Take his money and leave
07 Split it with your friend.
