Pros: 35' high speed certified HDMI cable. These were tough to find just a few months ago, but are now more common. This one installed fine and has a very thick cable.
Cons: I list thick cable as a pro, but really it seems to be more of a con. The cable has very little flexibility and so doesn't fit behind the receiver well. Even so, I was very gentle and never bent it sharply, but the connectors are so poorly constructed that my picture often fritzes out and gives digital scramble. If I wiggle the connector and pull slightly on the cable, it clears right up. I am requesting a replacement, but I just got a dud.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V373BL 5.1-Channel AV Receiver
Pros: Fantastic budget receiver with HDMI pass through.
Cons: Unfortunately I discovered a few things that are less than perfect, but overall it is great.
1) No built in up-converting from analog to digital. My Wii has component output, but that will not upconvert and send out over the HDMI to the TV / projector, so I had to purchase a separate Analog to digital converter for each input device that is not HDMI. Nicer receivers have this function built in.
2) HDMI pass through works great, but only if the receiver is ON. For instance, I feed my blue-ray into the receiver and then output to the tv / projector. If I want the full surround sound, great, but if I want to use the simple built in speakers on the TV, I still need to have the receiver on, but muted.
