Pros: Advertised for "4K X 2K Video Support". Connectors short enough to fit in recess of back of my SEIKI TV although the stiff cable did put pressure on them.
Cons: Will not handle 4K. 90% of the time signal is too weak. Only one time did I get a clean image, but that was lost when I disabled the other monitors connected to my computer. Re-enabling them didn't help.
I know it's a digital signal but the only way to describe the problem is: The image had snow in color transitions. When looking at a still image, it looked like the pixels in these areas were literally running around at random. I'm sorry but trying to watch a movie with someone's teeth flickering is a bit much.
Other Thoughts: When connected to the same computer with a shorter cable, the image is fine.
From searching the internet it looks like 15' is a general limitation to HDMI. It seems HDMI transmitters don't compensate (enough) for longer cables. Beyond 15' it's hit or miss.
I also looked into getting an amplifier but all of the ones I can find at this time are not rated for 4k, only up to HD's 1080p.
Returning it Defective, thank you newegg.com!
i7-3770K with 32G Ram on a Rampage V Extreme ASUS Motherboard. Video card is a ASUS HD7970-DC2-3GD5 running Windows 7 64bit.
The TV is a SEIKI SE50UY04.
Pros: Currently operating at advertised speed and ratings on an ASUS Maximus V Extreme, couldn't be happier.
Cons: Price: it's memory, nothing more.
Other Thoughts: hmm. other thoughts: To all software vendors, Windows 64-bit now outnumbers Windows 32-bit sales, so the question has changed from Why build 64-bit software to -- why not?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable, for what works.
Cons: False Advertising:
1) Advertised as having the ability to encode DTS, after searching the web and emailing ASUS support three weeks ago (for which the only reply I received was a survey), there is no way to enable DTS Connect.
2) Advertised as being able to communicate with a SSD drive (at SATA 2.0 spec) via mPCIe_Combo Connector. All SSD's I've connected fail to be recognized by the Combo Connector but are recognized by other ports.
You can always tell when a company feels big, by the way they overlook customers.
As mentioned in previous posts, my system would not post with the Combo Connector's mounting screw attached, I too had to remove the screw in order to get the system to post/boot. And yes, it's firmly seated.
Other Thoughts: Intel Core i7-3770K, ASUS HD7970-DC2-3GD5, Ultimate, G.SKILL Ripjaw Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1866, Enermax Platimax 850W, Windows 7, 64-bit.
M$ apathetic lack of USB 3.0 native support is appalling: USB 3.0 was on the market before Windows 7!
And for all Software Vendors: 64-bit Windows now outnumbers 32-bit Windows sales. So the question has changed from, why create 64-bit software to-- why not?
Built my first computer back in 1979, how things have changed!
