AMD FirePro W2100 100-505821 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Low Profile Workstation Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: After a glitchy day or two the board is now stable running a Samsung U28D590D smoothly and snappy at 3840x2160 60Hz on a DP cable.
This PCI-e 3 board is working fine in a PCI-e 2 slot.

Cons: None - found the board for $99.95 a few days after purchase.

Other Thoughts: I blame some Steam games load problems on Windows 10. The Firepro W2100 instantly installed under Windows 10 but locked up and would spontaneous reboot after "sleep". Reloaded 8.1 drivers (Sep 2014) and everything is great.

Pros: It works

Cons: none

SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Perhaps I was a bit harsh in the previous review. Monitor is quite nice at both:
3840x2160 60 Hz attached to an AMD Firepro w2100k, and 2560x1440 60 Hz as an extended desktop on a Lenovo T530.
Would probably recommend this over an IPS QHD monitor if price was close even for a QHD non-4K video card. It looks good at non-native resolution, even down to 1920x1080. Although I'm not sure how this is calculated but with 157 dpi it is a Retina display at <2 feet viewing distance - wonderful. I need a magnifying lens to see pixels.

Cons: Backlight is a bit uneven depending upon angle of view on the TN panel but no real complaint. Works fine for one or two people but likely would loose brightness to most of a crowd gathered around the screen. Samsung setup firmware setup includes a strange angle of view adjustment which I did not use.

Other Thoughts: While 16x9 has become a standard, 16x10 is so much better for business and use other than games and movies. That is the only real disappointment with this Samsung monitor. The early large samsung monitor panels were 1920x1200 - this one should be 3840x2400!
