2 out of 5 eggs (bought through other channels) Didn't love this -- soft, vague picture lacking saturation 04/05/2016

This review is from: Thinkvision Pro2840m

Pros: 4K. Not as espensive as some others.

Cons: The picture wasn't...vivid? The reviews are generally 3/5 for this product from what I saw, with a weak "gray scale" being discussed. Despite any settings we adjusted, it almost looked dreamy like a glamour shot or something, soft? This was at full 4K/UHD over display port 1.2 from Intel graphics. I'm not sure if this should be expected or if our monitor was a dud.

We tried the built in contrast, and brightness adjustments...as well as the color presets and custom SRGB.

Other Thoughts: You want DisplayPort (1.2) for this. HDMI only works at 30Hz.
Make sure your graphics card supports DP 1.2 and the resolution here. We got a low end, low profile Nvidia (730) which didn't...luckily, the integrated Intel graphics did. Of course, we wouldn't be gaming at 4K/UHD without a high end graphics card.

I hear good things about the Acer B286HK

5 out of 5 eggs Made joining my existint TP-Link Powerline Network a breeze 03/18/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT High-speed AV500 Nano Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, up to 500Mbps

Pros: Setup was, literally, the click of a two buttons to join my existing powerline network. Don't tell, but I even set mine up through a power strip and haven't had any issues.

Cons: Nothing to complain about.

Other Thoughts: I think wireless is the only thing that can really complicate these powerline networks, and I just set up my second variant of that and it was easy, too.

SYBA PCI-Express 1-Port DB9 RS232 Serial Card with Low Profile Bracket - RoHS Model SD-PEX15021

4 out of 5 eggs Reasonably priced and worked with little trouble 03/18/2016

This review is from: SYBA PCI-Express 1-Port DB9 RS232 Serial Card with Low Profile Bracket - RoHS Model SD-PEX15021

Pros: Worked for my client -- was able to interface a new Server with old tech using this.

Cons: Took a restart and an explainable 15 minute wait before I was able to see the port this added. Once it saw it, though, setup was a breeze.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you restart once after hardware install, power up, and software install (instructions are adequate)...then maybe try manually refreshing device manager so you won't have to wait around like I did. Worked in Windows 10 for me.
