Pros: Sounds amazing paired with the Polk Audio Monitor 70's I bought a few weeks ago. I bought it for an audio only system. Most powerful stereo amp available. Its simplistic, powerful, and has more than enough features, although I really could go without the video in/outs.
Cons: Has component video inputs. Really? Why? Remote is large and unwieldy, but does the job I guess.
Overall Review: I would recommend this receiver to anyone looking for a great quality 2 channel stereo. Don't buy it for the video, it doesn't even have HDMI.
Good buy unless it breaks...
Pros: Good card, played everything I threw at it. Ran pretty cool, and without issue until at one point it started bringing down the entire system.
Cons: If something ever goes wrong with it, you're in trouble. ASUS RMA'd this card for me, and I now have to send it in again, just 2 weeks later. Card starts artifacting and then bluescreens usually 2-3 times an hour. Going to keep RMA'ing it until I can afford a different card. >.<
Overall Review: 560 ti is a great chipset, maybe just buy from another manufacturer.
Avoid KINGWIN at all costs!
Pros: Had trouble finding any!
Cons: Customer service is NON-EXISTENT! Tried to get it replaced under warranty but all I get from the tech support number is a voicemail, and no response in weeks.
Overall Review: Stick with a reputable company, one who stands behind their products!
stay away from KINGWIN!
Pros: Looks good. Modular
Cons: power supply had constant issues, finally got around to attempting to RMA the unit and kingwins tech support is non existent. Stick with a reputable company when it comes to power supplies.
Overall Review: Stick with reputable brands, Kingwin has NO tech support.
Wow... What a deal
Pros: These speakers really sound amazing! Pair them with a HK 3490 receiver and you're all set! Theres really no way to describe how amazing they sound.. The clarity in the highs is
Cons: Nothing bad, they're awesome all around.
Overall Review: They were a bit bigger than I anticipated, they are fairly deep, so they may require a furniture re-adjustment. The feet are in fact downward facing cones, perfect for carpet. Also, the sound changes during the first week or two. The bass becomes more pronounced as the speakers break in. I would recommend taking it easy on them until fully broken in.
