5 out of 5 eggs Great TV, Suprised 12/02/2014

This review is from: Changhong 40" Class 1080p LED HDTV - LED40YD1100UA

Pros: Ok I'm going to copy another reviewer here because he hit all the notes:
sturdy glass stand
swivel, pivot
good on-screen controls
clicky/responsive controller (yup)
very loud speakers (wow! Yes, surprised again)
attractive appearance (surprised, doesn't look/feel cheap)
thin bezels
lots of inputs
picture fills the entire screen. On some channels, light letterboxing top/bottom but not on the sides.

Cons: I don't think you can wall mount it. The "pole" for the stand is already attached. All I had to do was attach the flat bottom.

Other Thoughts: VERY WELL PACKAGED. Thing came to my door not just in the box, but with corner pieces and straps. Impressed.

I mean if this was $350 okay I'd give it 4 stars, but for the current price (and the BF sale price I snagged it at) it's a sold 5 star unit.

ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A work of art and a thing of beauty. Custom design and it shows. Backplate

Cons: As with all 290X cards, overclocking can cause issues. I bumped up the memory and core and experienced the "black screen" issue. Went back to stock clocks and the issue hasn't repeated and it's been a few months.

Other Thoughts: Look we've been spoiled by massive overclocks... thing is, the 290X just can't do that out of the box. Run the card at reference specs and enjoy without headache. I mean, these cards were $600+ not six months ago....

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-0974-KR 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Superclocked ACX G-Sync Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: eVGA has good to great customer support

Cons: Card was not stable out of the box. Anytime it went into boost mode it caused freezing and locked up. Also, although it wasn't an issue, why would a company ship ACX and ACX 2.0 version? Yes please I'd like the old version, what?

Other Thoughts: I did not experience coil whine as some others have had. I just go a bad card, it happens. I think I'll wait this one out and probably go with someone other than eVGA this round.
