This review is from: YAMAHA HTR-3067 AV receiver 5.1ch / 4K Ultra HD corresponding black
Pros: I needed to replace one that's nearly 20 years old, one that would switch HDMI inputs, and support the BluRay surround sound specs. I am very pleased with it in most respects. The audio sounds better, clearer that my old receiver. Good FM reception.
Cons: Two things: The lack of a switched outlet for my subwoofer amp, that really should have been provided; and the remote cannot be programmed to control any other devices, and unless I got a fancy programmable remote, you need the one that comes with the receiver to use its features.
Other Thoughts: It is a bit low on power specs compared to most other AV receivers, but at this low of a price, as long as you don't have inefficient speakers and you have normal hearing, it should do fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought it on a special promo, saw that open source firmware was supported, did my research (my first time flashing OS firmware on a router, intended to be a learning experience for me and a better quality router in the end), decided on Shibby Tomato, got the very latest version from early August 2016, installed and configured it, it is running well for me so far.
Cons: The info on the web about installing firmware for this model is scarce and not exactly correct, so it is not a project for everyone. Not ASUS's fault of course.
Other Thoughts: Excellent value even without the rebate I applied for when offered, and I like its styling.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RFSH-13001 - 12-sheets Cross-Cut Paper and Credit Card Shredder
Pros: Solidly built, particularly the shredding blades & frame. I used it heavily today, didn't get even overly warm to the touch. Moderate noise level for the work it does. .Even the power cord is first rate. Handy indicator lights.
Cons: No slot to shred CD's/DVD's
Other Thoughts: Good value based on sale price from Rosewill; at the regular price I would compare it to other shredders with similar specs.READ FULL REVIEW
