Pros: No blue screens, very good image at 3840x2160@30Hz for programming or design work. No blue screens ever.
Cons: Full screen video (such as netflix) at highest resolution shows shearing; for a smoother experience, use standard HD (1920x1080). My main use is for programming, so I don't mind the horizontal shearing. I'd rather have a quiet, low energy consuming and inexpensive card, so I still give it 5 stars
Other Thoughts: Sometimes when the monitor power is off, the computer doesn't detect it being turned on, so it sends no signal. The workaround for that is to put the computer to suspend/resume the desktop. It may be the computer's fault, so not taking any stars off from the reviewREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great both in Win7 and Win8 at 4k resolution over HDMI port. I love it that it is fanless-silent and using relatively little power
Cons: I am using it now in a new desktop. It worked somewhat on an 8 year old destkop that only had PCI Express v1, but on that desktop it bluescreened a couple times. It probably was not realistic to use it on an 8 year old desktop, but I thought I would give it a shot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sceptre 32" 720p LCD HDTV X322BV-HD
Pros: - downscales 1080 line channels nicely (to 720 lines)
- closed captioning's font, size, and color can be customized, which is a very good thing for people with imperfect vision
- built-in media player, can do photo slide show while playing mp3 files in the background off a USB drive; it also allows zoom and pan with the photos
Cons: - media player can get confused in folders with 1000 files, got the TV to reboot, and even lose its settings (reverts to factory settings)
- only has 720 lines, so from upclose you can see the lines, but from 5 feet or more away it looks very good, so not an issue
- remote control has small buttons (but they have enough space between them, so one doesn't accidentally press two buttons at once).
Other Thoughts: None of the cons are biggies, and it is still worth it even at the regular price (I got it during the black Friday sale)READ FULL REVIEW
