This review is from: Microsoft Arc Mouse - Black
Pros: Closes, compact, stylish, leather pouch
Cons: Scroll wheel is terrible and cursor actually scrolls in opposite direction at times. The mouse is unresponsive on some surfaces, especially glassy ones (granite, etc). The mouse stopped working after around 2 months.
Other Thoughts: Newegg warranty no good after 30 days so I guess its going back to Microsoft? Good luck.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ONKYO HT-S6300 7.1-Channel Home Theater System With iPod Dock
Pros: Good HTIB. My first foray into home theater for my new house. Was definitely a learning experience shopping/purchasing. I went with this system because of the reviews and I was starting from scratch. Sub and receiver are great and super easy to set up.
Cons: Knowing what I do now, I wouldn't go with an HTIB. That being said, the receiver and sub in the HT-6300 alone are worth the $475 I paid for it on New Egg. Down-firing sub thumps and I have it installed in the base of my custom media niche. The speakers are only ok. Feel sort of chinsy and light. Supplied cabling is junk, go online and get yourself a few spools of 12 or 14 gauge speaker wire. I wired my entire house for a clean look for under $50 with banana plugs (a must IMO).
Other Thoughts: I have my last two surround speakers (7.1) set up as a zone 2 and honestly don't use them much. I find that the sound channels they play are odd sounding unless you're watching a movie optimized for 7.1. Also, I don't have the ideal room setup for 7.1. In hind site I would go with an Onkyo reveiver (608) and a home grown 5.1 setup with Polk speakers. Although the sound quality is good for this price point, the stock speakers in the HTIB won't fill a bigger room. A front mounted HDMI In/Out would also be nice. I usually plug my laptop straight into the receiver or use the media server on my PS3.READ FULL REVIEW
