This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR515 7.2-Channel Network 3D Ready A/V Receiver
Pros: Multiple HDMI ports, internet connected
Cons: Outdated UI, apparently not durable.
Other Thoughts: My receiver made it 1 month over 2 years and now experiencing frequent internet connectivity issues and intermittent sound output issues. Up until this point it was a good receiver that met expectations. Now I may have to wait upward of an hour for sound to be output, meanwhile the video signal to the TV is still functional. The UI seems outdated and is reflected in the Android remote app. Have sent 2 unanswered emails to Onkyo customer service, through their website, and just spent 15 minutes listening to hold music attempting to call customer service only to finally receive a message saying no agents available and to leave a message. Not satisfied.
This update is many months over due. The connectivity issues identified above were due to a known issue which is documented in Onkyo's forums, a faulty network adapter. Onkyo pays for the receiver to be shipped and repaired. Post repair it works like a charm. The Net interface, for streaming music, is still out of date with services that no longer exist/work on the device but what are you going to do...Its primary function as a receiver works great.

Pros: Quick boot, fast performance, decent hard drive size, 100GB drive space for 2 years is a good deal, use of Google apps is nice alternative to Office.
Cons: A keyboard back light would be nice.READ FULL REVIEW
