Pros: Pixel Density, low cost, mounting options, build quality, small bezel.
Cons: Mouse lag, windows scaling.
Other Thoughts: I am only writing this review because of many of the negative reviews posted here. I bought two of these along with a cheap R7 260 card, the day it was launched. I took some time to set them up as i was away from home.I was going to buy the Samsung and before that i was considering the Dell BUT these monitors are seriously flawed. I am using these side by side for Photography and lightroom work. I am not playing game and dont care to on this set up at this time. I am giving it 5 stars because of my lowered expectation after reading the reviews here. First i have to monitors and I have not seen any bad pixels. the problems i experience are related to windows scaling, i have it at 125%. At 150% i am getting alot of pixelation which i think is due to program issues. I will upgrade this machine to Windows 8.1 which i think is better for 4k scaling. Other than that, i have chosen a Large mouse pointer and i find it tedious on the eyes when doing mundane tasks like typing this review in Chrome. Chrome does not scale very well in 4k and there tend to be shadows and pixelation. Havent tried 4k video yet. Have one on the HDMI and the other on the DP, so i guess they are both running at 30 Hz - fine by me. What BLOWS you totally AWAY is the way photography looks especially when its a high resolution (like a full frame canon 5D). But i am very pleased. I might change my mind after using it for a while - BUT for now Phtography work looks FANTASTIC on these monitors. Previously i was using HP LP3065.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO AirStation HighPower N300 Gigabit DD-WRT Wireless Router - WZR-300HP
Cons: NOT DDWRT Compatible. Difficult to set up. Firmware issues. Does not appear to support features like Bridge Repeater function. Purchased because i thought it was DDWRT Installed and Compatible. It might be. But its a pain. Firmware that the unit comes with doesnt have Bridge and Bridge Repeater mode - instead it has something called WDS which looks like some proprietary mode for using multiple Bufallo routers. SO NO GO. The hardware rejects the official DDWRT that they have listed for this model. WHen you install the latest firmware from the website (Buffalo 'Friendly' firmware) - it looks like a really lite low end firmware with none of the advanced features. There are also numerous problems everytime i try to reinstall the firmware. There is no connection if you use a cable. Contacted support and i have not heard from them.
Other Thoughts: STAY AWAY FROM THIS (AND POSSIBLY ALL BUFFALO ROUTERS) if you are expecting DDWRT compatibility. In my opinion ITS NOT COMPATIBLE. And it appears that they try to block the installation of any non Buffalo firmware.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap and good value
Cons: One of the two units stopped working after the first month. The screen is just blank with some lines. It was not dropped or misused. I contacted the manufacturer who told me that they do no support the Nextbook products that Newegg sells: "Dear Nextbook customer
Unfortunately we do not service the models sold through Newegg and you will need to contact them directly to see how they can further assist you with this"
Other Thoughts: Be careful as there does not appear to be a proper support system on this. I will try to contact Newegg about this.READ FULL REVIEW
