This review is from: V-MODA Metal Faze Noise-Isolating In-Ear Headphone
Pros: Carrying pouch, splitter, over the ear doodads, extra earbud covers.
Cons: They sound bad. Muffled, no highs, boomy bass. Unrealistic reproduction of sound. Wire length is an inch or so too short.
Other Thoughts: I really feel sorry for anyone that pays $70 for these things. They will be nice as a backup and for extra parts. On promo it is worth it in that regard. I swear you can get better sound at the dollar store though.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ONKYO TX-SR313 5.1-Channel 3D-Ready Home Theater Receiver
Pros: Great sound, great features, easy to use and set up, solid, hasn't broken yet. Has a plethora of settings to tweak, which I appreciate. Plays from Android phones via USB fine. Very basic navigation. Has many different preset options to switch through for TV, digital video, music and gaming.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I bought this (because it was dirt cheap - thanks Newegg) because my aging HT in a box needed to be replaced. I also wanted it to simplify all of the device connections, so having 4 HDMI units going in and 1 HDMI out to TV is incredibly helpful. Yes component isn't upscaled to HDMI, but it's not a big deal. I also bought this over the network versions because of all of the bad press regarding Onkyo's firmware issues. I decided a simple machine that doesn't need firmware upgrades is good enough. Streaming can be done through a Roku or something anyway. So with that said - it's simple (with the ability to get complicated if you need it to), and it works, and it produces a fine amount of sound for my medium sized TV room.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Coboc 6 ft. Gold Plated, High Speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: It works!
Other Thoughts: Arrived quickly, cheaply, and it works. Ran it from the receiver to the TV, and it will stay that way, so durability doesn't matter.READ FULL REVIEW
