Pioneer HTP-072 5.1 Channel Home Theater Package with 3D AV Receiver, Subwoofer and Satellite Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Got this on sale for $200, can still use the satellite speakers (which are nice speakers by the way...)

Cons: Lasted less than a year before it started periodically flickering the HDMI output to the TV, did not matter what I had plugged into it, my laptop, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, or PS4 the same thing happens... the audio stays good but the video goes out and might stay out for anywhere from 5 seconds to a full minute. I tried switching the input ports I was using, new HDMI cables, restarting the system, etc... Also having to do all the system settings through the AV was kind of dumb IMO.

Other Thoughts: My new Yamaha RX-V577 7.2 system will use these satellite speakers nicely with some larger shelf speakers for the front two, and the sub will be useless to me as my new receiver (like most) require an active sub so I will have to purchase one or two active subs for the system. Overall almost a year of flawless use and a few extra months of occasional frustration with a set of speakers that should last a long time I am not too upset about it since I only payed $200, I would be extremely upset if I payed full price for this thing.

ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

Pros: Burned literally hundreds of cds, dvds and dl-dvds and worked nice and fast.

Cons: Started acting up at about 11 months. I swapped sata cables and ports on the motherboard, no good. Replacement working fine.

Other Thoughts: Can not give too bad of a rating because this is the drive I wanted to burn up instead of the Pioneer bluray burner that cost me 4 times as much at the time. I fix computers and burn discs for a living, to say that I burned 1,000 discs with this drive might not be an exaggeration. I did hope that it would last longer but I am not going to complain too badly, it was a workhorse for almost a year and at times was pumping out discs for hours at a time only breaking long enough to put in another disc. It was definitely worth what I payed for it.

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great board at first, still working for me...

Cons: Problematic. After about 6 months the on-board audio started acting up and making noise in my 7.1 system, I tried fresh O.S. reload, updates, etc.. My old 7.1 card fixed the problem but did not offer speaker fill (which was not an issue with XP when I got the card). Long story short I had to buy a new sound card, a couple of the usb ports on the motherboard do not work now, It is still working for me but it causes headaches from time to time.

Other Thoughts: Hard to find a new 1155 MB that will fit my needs now but I will stick with this one until I want to upgrade my I5.
