YAMAHA RX-V573BL 7.1-Channel Network AV Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good starter receiver 12/30/2013

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V573BL 7.1-Channel Network AV Receiver

Pros: 7.1 capable

Decent amount of HDMI ports and some component/avi ports as well for older gen consoles or dvd/vhs players

Easy setup

Network receiver

Not too bulky

YPAO speaker configuration mic (makes configuring the sound super easy!)

Cons: Not sure if it is my speakers or the receiver, but every once in a while I get an audible snapping sound from the speakers almost like the snap of static shock.

There seems to be a buffer for when sound is actually played through the speakers (small but noticeable). When I first turn on my PC, part of the startup sound is chopped off because of it. I also notice it for facebook notifications as well.. shorter sounds tend to get chopped off when there is no signal going to the speakers before it happens.

Network aspect of the receiver doesn't appear to add any value to the receive in my case.

Other Thoughts: Completely happy with the purchase and would recommend Yamaha brand products to anyone looking for motorcycles, audio equipment, etc.

I hear they make pianos too! (haha)

SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Speedy read/write speed

Super fast boot if OS is installed on it

Decent capacity for the price

Cons: Price is a lot higher than traditional HDDs but you honestly get what you pay for. Traditional HDDs are not nearly as fast in read/write speeds.

If you're looking for quick boot up, get this SSD or a 32/64gb SSD and install your OS and get a large HDD (if you don't already have one) for storage.

Other Thoughts: Samsung is easily becoming one of my favorite brands whether it be TVs, cell phones, computer hardware, etc.

I trust the Samsung brand a lot as they have quality products.

Microsoft  SIDEWINDER X4  Keyboard - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent sturdy keyboard 12/30/2013

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: Sturdy

Anti-ghosting / N-key rollover (can press tons of keys simultaneously and not get pc beep or repeating keystrokes)

Backlit keys

Sleek profile

Keystroke feel - somewhat in between a laptop keyboard and standard pc

Programmable macro buttons - You can record keystrokes and edit them easily on the computer to create strings of multiple keystrokes or repeating macros for gaming or any other task you may have.

Easy media shortcut buttons along the top for skipping tracks, pc volume, backlight intensity (and a calculator button)

Cons: The only cons I can think of for this are that it is a little tough to get used to the left side of the keyboard at first. After you get past that and are comfortable with the keyboard, it becomes second nature and you'll love it.

Oh and sometimes if you have macros set on the S* keys, you may find that you bump them and it starts doing a bunch of keystrokes in your macro when you didn't want it to. - This especially gets annoying if you have macros that repeat indefinitely.

Other Thoughts: Great keyboard. The first one I had broke because I misused it and dropped it a lot (cord shorted out from too much strain on the cable from being dropped).

I have since bought a new keyboard and love it. I've taken much better care of it and I have another one I ordered to replace it when it inevitably becomes too worn to use.
