Pioneer VSX-822-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great receiver, great deal 11/28/2013

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-822-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver

Pros: At the sales price, this was an absolute steal. Despite what others may have said regarding functions - all of them work flawlessly. The on screen display isn't that bad although the main setup screen is like other receivers I have from 7 years ago. The Pandora, media player and vTuner displays are better. Not "wow" but acceptable. It's a nice looking unit and sounds great.

The iOS ControlApp works great too, an added bonus. I've testing the Air Play, Pandora, vTuner and iPod interface and all work really well. I'm not sure what others were expecting but at this price range it's fantastic. You don't need anything other than this receiver for network-based music.

Cons: Minor, considering the price point. It doesn't have component input and doesn't do up conversion of non-HD video. It's 5.1 only which might by a drawback for some. It only has one optical input which is dedicated to the TV channel. You can't rename inputs (as others have noted.)

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a low cost receiver that supports much of the modern music stuff you need today, then get this receiver. I'm blown away by how good of a deal this is.

Rosewill RHMS-13001 - Swivel Arm Desk Mount for 13” - 27” VESA LCD Monitors or Apple 27” Cinema Display
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works with Apple displays without buying extra VESA adapter from Apple. Looks match the Apple aesthetic. I'm using it with an Apple 27" Cinema display.

Cons: It does take some force to ensure a good grip on the pivot closest to the monitor. I had no problem myself with this. A steady and strong desk is require. I get some bouncing on my monitor but that is the desk's fault.

Other Thoughts: Others have complained about the force on the pivot. I didn't have an issue with this but I did notice that the nylon bushings weren't quite in place properly when I set it up.

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT120GB-V 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is good value for a mSATA SSD. Performance is good (not top notch) and the price is right. No problems running this on my ASUS Gene IV motherboard with mSATA daughter board.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Depending on your board mSATA might not offer screaming performance versus SATA drives. Double check this. I'm more than happy with my setup at SATA II speeds.
