This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1122-K 7.2-Channel Network Ready A/V Receiver
Pros: Great receiver, easy to setup and lots of inputs! I have a huge media library so built-in DLNA support is nice. Apple device support plus Airplay support is awesome. iControlAV2012 is sweet, you can control the receiver right from your iPad!
Cons: No video support through DLNA or portable devices like iPads. You must get a higher level receiver for these features.
Other Thoughts: I love Pioneer receivers and they're all I recommend to anyone!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Monster Cable 128202-00 4 ft. Standard THX-Certified THX V100 HDMI Cable M-M
Pros: They were free!! I personally wouldn't buy a Monster cable cos they are so expensive and I don't know enough to know if it is justified. I got two free so I used them and they work fine.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Asus as always delivers! It's been about 5 years since my last build so a lot of stuff is new to me but as far as I can tell this board is bulletproof. If you screw-up your overclocking settings the board will still boot so that you can make adjustments. I'm not a hardcore overclocker so I've found this board makes overclocking very easy.
Other Thoughts: The only negative I have is that out of the box my system did not boot and the RAM LED was on. I tested each board individually but still couldn't get it to boot. Long story short: I flashed the BIOS and then the system boot. I was annoyed cos I bought RAM that was listed on the compatible list. The only reason I did not take away an egg is because of the ability to flash the BIOS on this board with nothing more than a power supply. I don't know when Asus came up with that feature but it is by far one of the best!READ FULL REVIEW
