This review is from: Yamaha RX-V375 5.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver
Pros: Bought the Yamaha RX-V375 Receiver to replace outdated Yamaha equipment bought more than 20 years ago that still performs like new. Conducted extensive research to find a high quality unit with the features and functions that would satisfy my needs and budget and arrived at the RX-V375 or RX-V475. Since I have Apple TV installed on my TV, the RX-V375 was a great solution for my needs at a good price. Since I really like Yamaha equipment based on previous experience, I was confident that this was a good decision.
So far, very satisfied with the purchase, setup, performance, and capabilities of the receiver. Setup was easy, instructions were clear, used the included calibration Mic and the audio through my Bose speakers is fantastic. HDMI cables make the hook-up really easy and the TV picture quality is excellent.
Apple TV is also connected to the receiver and provides wireless access to my PC for music and photo slide shows. This connection also allows streaming of movies from Netflix, Hulu, and a whole list of options available through Itunes.
Also, Newegg had a special where they included two Pioneer speakers with the purchase of the RX-V375, so it became an offer I could not refuse.
Other Thoughts: Newegg is my go to site for electronics. Prices are reasonable, delivery is prompt and I have never been disappointed with a purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My desktop went from being loud and obnoxious to cool and quiet for not a lot of money. Very happy with the change. Price was great and delivery time was fast. Can't ask for better than that.
Cons: Not so easy to replace the old fan and install the Arctic. The old fan was bonded to the CPU so I ended up pulling out the CPU with the old fan. I drove to a local independent computer store with the old fan and CPU in hand, showed it to the tech, and asked if he knew what he was looking at. He said yes, a newbie mistake. He was then kind enough to take a tool and separate the fan from the CPU and sent me on my way.
After cleaning and replacing the CPU into the motherboard the procedure went smoothly. Although I was concerned that the Arctic fan was so large it would touch other boards and components in the case, it actually fit without a problem. Key is to take it slow and be patient, be careful to first do no harm.
The effort was totally worth it. After completing the upgrades including PSU, 2 additional GB memory, and Saphire 7770 GPU my desktop Gateway DX4200-11 is experience rated at 7.4 (excluding Disc) and doesn't sound like a wind tunnel.
Other Thoughts: Happy with Arctic and Newegg product and service.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very pleased with the delivery time, ease of installation and performance improvement for gaming graphics. Installed the 7770 into a Gateway DX4200-11 with an integrated graphics card rated at 3.8, now rated at 7.4. Considerable and welcome change. Previously replaced the psu from stock 300 to Corsair CX500.
Recommend the Sapphire, Corsair and Newegg for quick delivery.
