Pros: Great laptop for the price; speedy.
Cons: Notebook quit charging after two months - dead. I tried every solution I could find online to no avail. Huawei is not easy to deal with for warranty repairs - after multiple emails, uploading photos of my machine, and providing a proof of purchase, I am still waiting for a shipping label and box. I won't buy another product from them.
Pros: For $10, fun little remote controlled car.
Cons: Car's reception is spotty at times.
Pros: Great product for the iPad 2 - I like it.
Cons: None, especially if you get the shield on sale like I did.
Pros: This receiver replaced a $1,000 Harman Kardon model that I purchased three years ago. The sound may not be quite as rich as the Harman Kardon (I noticed a slight difference when I first hooked up the receiver, but cannot tell now), but the features and price blow the Harman Kardon out of the water.
Further, my HK was in the shop within the first month for a sound problem (and the replacement receiver had the same issue intermittently). So I paid $1,000 for a new Harman Kardon receiver and had a refurbished model 30 days later. Pathetic. A month into ownership of my new Yamaha receiver, it still works. lol. And I push my receiver hard - it never goes off. I use it for music and all tv viewing.
Overall, this Yamaha RX-v867 receiver rocks. I will never go back to Harman Kardon after getting this little sophisticated monster. The technology is moving too fast to spend more than $500 on a receiver. So get the Yamaha - you will be very impressed.
Cons: None really. Just a tremendous deal. It has my Klipsch speakers rocking the casbah! Listening to Rev Theory as I type this review. I wish it played nicer with OSX, but it's flawless with MS Windows.
Overall Review: Yamaha is going to be my receiver of choice for many years to come if this performance continues. I like to upgrade my receiver every 24-36 months, and the price and quality of this Yamaha are unbeatable. Onkyo and Pioneer do not compete.
Pros: For $199 with free shipping from Newegg, I'm ecstatic with this purchase. This woofer sounds outstanding and matches perfectly with my Klipsch Reference Series towers and new Yamaha receiver (which I also bought from Newegg at a steal of a price). Built-in electronic crossover, easy to use controls, and sexy looking. Get it!
Cons: None, other than it's heavy, and UPS damaged the first one Newegg sent me. I called Newegg and four days later I had a new one! That is GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
Overall Review: Best deal out there for $199. And after hearing it in person, I'd pay $399.
