Pros: the resolution and color reproduction are amazing. i've never seen a monitor where the colors are this good - i always calibrate my monitors so they look half decent, but this monitor starts out really really good from the factory.
built-in usb3 hub is nice to have.
Cons: there's a noticeable amount of backlight bleed off axis - so if you look at the screen at a 45 deg. angle or more, the background won't look black.
Other Thoughts: i found that cpu integrated graphics is still pretty buggy - definitely put this monitor on a discrete video card to get 60Hz support over displayport.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great card for driving a 4K monitor at 60Hz for non-gaming applications. i needed something for a "productivity" rig with a 4K monitor on it, and this card fit the bill perfectly. it's the latest nvidia silicon, so it has all the bells and whistles without needing extra "PCIe" power feeds.
Cons: i wish the 750 came in a single slot version like the GT 640 did. only 1 displayport conection - the HDMI connection should be a 2nd displayport connection since you can trivially get an adapter cable to drive a TV if that's your thing, but you can't go the other way around.
Other Thoughts: i spent a whole weekend trying to get haswell integrated video to drive a 4K monitor at 60Hz. no go. lots of BSoDs in win 8.1 and totally quirky failure modes. save yourself endless hassle and go with a card+drivers made by people who know what they're doing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LSI LSI00297 CacheVault Accessory kit for 9266-4i and 9266-8i--Avago Technologies
Pros: finally, a battery backup that doesn't wear out every 18 months. i hope. easy & flexible install with provided short and long cable for the supercap.
Cons: i wish LSI made an all-in-one controller. i had to buy this separately and bolt on the logic board to the controller and mount the supercap in my case.
Other Thoughts: i actually used this on an LSI 9271-8iCC controller. it's compatible even though the item title doesn't say so.READ FULL REVIEW
