This review is from: Sony STR-DH550 145W 5.2 Channel 4K A/V HD Receiver 4 X HDMI USB
Pros: It's a nice looking receiver with quite a nice supply of power for your speakers. All of the speaker posts allow for use of banana plugs. Setup was extremely easy with the auto-setup feature.
Cons: This doesn't come with a manual, you have to search online for the manual, and there are two flavors of the manual! one is a leaflet, and the real manual is even harder to locate online. The quality of the display on the unit and the On-Screen Display is a little clunky, on-par with PONG (if you remember back that far)
Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic receiver, made even better by the price. The On-Screen Display is embarrassingly outdated, but the features you are selecting are solid. For the price, it's a very nice receiver for someone wanting a 5.2 system.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIJINTEK METIS Aluminum M-ITX Case, USB 3.0* 2, Compatible with Standard ATX Power Supply, 170mm VGA Card Length, 160mm CPU Cooler Height, 120mm Performing Fan Pre-Installed, 7 Colors Option - Green
Pros: all aluminum case, nice looking, small. well built.
Cons: The only con i have is the SSD Drives are hard to mount at the bottom. You can't use the 90 degree cables because they bend the wrong way, they will bend down into the base of the case, rather then up away from it.
Other Thoughts: Mounting the SSD Drives were the only real issue with the case that i had. It has a nice solid feel to it and my wife loves it. I got the case to replace another one i had modified (read: drilled a giant hole into it) to vent a water cooling fan, which the water cooler ended up dying, the replacement also ended up dying. I killed the whole water cooling thing and got this case to put the computer in with a standard CPU cooler. Glad i did, it's a great case for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial BX100 500GB SATA 2.5 inch Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT500BX100SSD1
Pros: Inexpensive SSD for the capacity. It's a pretty speedy drive.
Cons: none really.
Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Crucial SSD i've purchased over the years, and i've been happy with all of them. This particular one gave a new lease on life for an older Lenovo Laptop. Once i got the new drive cloned, the laptop screamed to life, and is faster then heck! (compared to what it was). I'm glad i got the 500GB version. I didn't realize that my laptop already had a 250GB drive in it, with the other partitions for various Lenovo backup and recovery tools on it. I have plenty of space left over for a few more years of use.READ FULL REVIEW
