This review is from: YAMAHA AVENTAGE RX-A820 7.2-Channel Receiver
Pros: Sleek, clean, classic Yamaha look. Enhances normal TV sound to clear distinct words so you are not having to crank the audio to understand what people are saying. Movies (Blu-rays) are even better. The DTS-HD and TrueHD are as good or better than going to a movie theater. Pandora was a snap to setup and the audio on 7 channel encoding is amazing.
Cons: I'm an audiophile and I have tried to find something not to like. Sorry, can't find anything so far.
Other Thoughts: This AVR is paired with
1 x Kilpsch Synergy C-10 Center Channel Speaker
2 x Kilpsch KB-15 (Front left & right)
2 x Kilpsch Synergy S-10 (Rear left & right)
1 x Yamaha powered sub-woofer
All I can say is WOOOOW!! :-)
Pros: To begin, this monitor is EXACTLY want I wanted. To have a computer monitor with Full HD functionality and HDMI. ASUS has over done itself with this model. There is no over washed color. All the colors are vivid and bright. I also have a Samsung 2333SW and it beats it hands down in color comparison side by side. I use my Samsung as a second monitor on my rig. Blu-ray looks stunning on this screen. Blacks are blacker and whites are whiter. The HDMI is perfect for using with an external receiver for video out and gaming / movies.
The 2ms GTG (gray to gray) scale is right on target. I can tell a clearer and sharper image on the Asus than with the Samsung 2333SW 5ms BTB (black to black).
Cons: It did not auto-detect the input source (D-sub, DVI, or HDMI). Once I manually set it, its been perfect ever since. No reason to give it less of a rating for that.
Other Thoughts: There is no ghosting, fading, or anything abnormal about this monitor. If I could give it a 10 I would.
I have this attached to an ASUS ENGTS450 and it works flawlessly. ASUS and Newegg are awesome once again!!
Pros: Easy install. SATA drive. Lightscribe support.
This drive has it all. Plays Blu-ray disks with no issue whatsoever. Burns with Roxio with no problem. Plays standard DVD's flawlessly. Replaced my old IDE DVD burner and burns everything faster and with less "costers". Install time was less than 20min including loading software. Couldnt be more pleased with this drive
Cons: Not to crazy with the silver faceplate to replace the default black one. But still not enough to take away an "egg".
Other Thoughts: Other than not coming with a beige faceplate, im very pleased with this unit. Looks aside, it runs flawlessly and quite.READ FULL REVIEW
