Pros: I bought this for the ARC function and it works. Other than that, it is a cable: what more needs be said?

This review is from: SONY STRDH740 7.2-Channel 4K A/V Receiver
Pros: Sound is excellent. Really good surround sound ( I have seven speaker system: floor (2), center (1) and 4 ceiling speakers. Excellent does not begin to describe it: even my wife is impressed.
Cons: 1. After my remote turns all pieces off--cable box, tv and receiver--receiver turns back on and must be turned off again. Why? Who knows.
2. No switch to turn off speakers. So when headphones are plugged in external speakers are off with no way of activating them again.
3. Menu system is not very intuitive.
4. I am running computer and cable box thru receiver to one HDMI to tv (new Samsung.) Occasionally tv blanks out even though audio continues. A tv problem? A receiver problem? I have been unable to do anything but shut everything down and reboot everything.
Other Thoughts: The power issues mean that one remote control is not possible. I have to have the tv, receiver and cable box remotes available at all times. This does not make for a happy wife.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wanted touch monitor for Win8. Touch works well with all applications I have tried. They make this monitor with and without HDMI. HDMI allows for only one cable for audio/video. If you want to use external speakers opt for the DVI only version and save money.
Cons: Screen front is glass so there are some reflections from surrounding lights, windows, etc. Annoying but it comes with the territory with a touch monitor I guess.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to use with Win8 in desktop situation. Frankly, the mouse is much easier to use. I find that while the touch screens works OK, it is just not very convenient for most applications. I would not buy a touch screen monitor again even though it is a nice monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
