This review is from: Changhong 42" Class UHD LED TV - UD42YC5500UA
Pros: The motion compensation algorithm is smooth, and fairly quick, but that's about the only good thing about this screen.
Cons: Like many other reviewers have stated, there is a SIGNIFICANT delay on the video processing of this television unit. There is an approximate 1/3 of a second delay between the video source and the display, which not only results in UNUSABILITY from a PC source, but also HORRIBLE response when using everything from a Nintendo® Wii to a Sony® Playstation 3 or 4.
Everything else is satisfactory, but this delay makes it IMPOSSIBLE to enjoy this screen for gaming and PC interaction. The creators seem to know this unfortunate truth, and have included in the options menu an "Audio Synchronization Delay" option, which at least makes this display usable with Netflix or other video streaming, DVD, or BluRay sources. To me, this is unacceptable. To most people, it's okay. IF YOU DESIRE TO USE THIS TV WITH GAMING, STAY AWAY.
Other Thoughts: I want to destroy this display, rather than return or resell it. NOBODY deserves this level of inconsiderate design.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I get about 400MB per second in sustained transfer rate. Pretty good for the price.

Pros: 2.6GHz speed at this price!
Cons: Smallish L2 Cache (2x512KB vs. 2x1MB in my 6000+)
Odd clock multiplier (13x) results in unfortunate consequences in RAM speed
Forces PC6400 RAM to run at 371MHz / 742MHz DDR when running FSB at stock speeds
Have to overclock FSB to 216MHz just to achieve DDR 800MHz speeds for memory
Other Thoughts: I had to choose between overclocking my motherboard's chipset or running my RAM slower. I chose to run my RAM slower, which is what I'd recommend to whoever uses this CPU, unless you have a motherboard which is capable of stable overclocking. The motherboard I installed this CPU in was a budget motherboard whose chipset was already running hot. So, rather than risk the board, I decided a 7.25% slowdown in memory was an acceptable sacrifice.
I only wish AMD would leave the multiplier unlocked on ALL its processors... or maybe improve the memory bus as to where it could utilize an asynchronous clock speed for RAM based on autodetection or manual user intervention. Imagine... you'd be able to just set it to DDR800 and go...
