I would recommend this product to anyone, even with the few "cons". The quality is top notch.

My Samsung TV automatically takes over control of specific functions on the receiver when used in conjunction with my Samsung blue ray player. I bought this to replace an old pioneer sx315.

More HDMI inputs than past generations to keep up with the change in components. Much smaller footprint and seemingly runs cooler. Easy Setup.
