4 out of 5 eggs Not as bad as expected 11/09/2015

This review is from: Changhong 49" Class UHD LED TV - UD49YC5500UA

Pros: - Price! (biggest pro of course)
- Decent quality build
- Super thin and sleek
- Colors are good. (RGB can be adjusted individually)
- The speakers are actually decent. At least loud, I've never had them past 20.
- input lag isn't a horror story. (Though much less than desirable)
- It's 4k! (With a PC. or maybe with a Bluray that doesn't require HDCP 2.2)

Cons: - There were a few imperfections with the screen it's self, ie. pixels that bleed (They don't look quite dead, like the screen has a tiny scratch from the inside) Only noticeable on all white screen while closely looking for them.
- 30hz @ 4K
- Not compatible with Roku 4 @ 4k (Because HDCP 2.2) so no 4k Netflix...
- Next to no effect on improving lower res images.
- Light backlight bleed around most edges (Fairly small and only noticeable when displaying black near edges)
- input lag is to much for any Console gaming.
- EMR is garbage and makes the TV physically lagg (Even the TV menu with flash and glitch.) causing shows to freeze for a second at a time and jump to catch up.

Other Thoughts: I would like to say, this TV is pretty terrible for console gaming. I mostly use my XBone for streaming like Netflix. For that it's fine, though there was some tweaking with the menu to sync lips and reduce input lag. but games feel like your playing drunk. FPS games are impossible because you can't stop on target. Mobas and platformers are playable (Racing might be) but it still doesn't feel right and I'd rather play on my 32" 1080p (Yes all my setting are adjusted for lag. EMR, DNR "Game" mode ect)

However! I would like to say I was fairly impressed with it's PC compatibility. @ True 4k this TV is glorious! and for watching cinema, True 4k is the way to go! But the mouse lagg is real! it feels like your PC is drunk...

But there's a Fix for that! Apparently. By enabling both GPU scaling and VSR (virtual super resolution) in AMD's Catalyst, you can render 4k resolutions and "Display" it on a 1080p screen. But because it actually is a 4k screen it virtually simulates 4k at 4k @60hz with almost ZERO input lag! However, the onscreen text will look like garbage, but games look super pretty! (also, the TV itself says it's displaying 4k res when the info button is pressed, not 1080p)

The last thing I planned to use this for was my PC and now I've got my PC running to my receiver via 15FT HDMI cable and My XBone is collecting dust...

I was honestly going to give this TV 3 stars because it really is just a 3 star TV... Only because it's functionality is garbage. But the Colors are great and the TV it self is of good build quality and getting it to work so smoothly with my PC and receiver gives me warm fuzzies inside. So I added an extra star.

I am happy with this purchase but, unless you are aware of what you are buying and know exactly what you need the TV for, I don't recommend this TV. At least not for anyone who didn't understand everything I mentioned in my review. Thanks

GIGABYTE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 GV-R929WF3-4GD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Price
- Powerful
- Thinner than my other 290
- Not DOA
- Seems to Xfire smoothly
- Supports Freesync while in Xfire
- Runs movies great in 4k

Cons: - Large, blocks slots
- Hot!
- Power hungry
- Hasn't overclocked well.

Other Thoughts: I just recently added a 2nd 290 to my rig. My FIRST card also only takes 2 rear slots but it's heat sink is a triple wide so it cannot be used in the lower PCI slot as a 2nd card.(Blocks Motherboard power PWR switch cables) This one is much thinner.

Together they take quite a lot of power. My 5yr old 1000W started failing after adding this GPU but I already had a 1200w backup ready to replace.

This GPU has a little green LED near its rear that apparently indicates the card is not currently being powered. At first I thought something was wrong with my setup, but simply putting strain on the system would kick the card on and start reading in afterburner. So that's a thing.

Alpine Swiss Men’s Leather Spring Money Clip Front Pocket Wallet
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Almost exaclty what I was looking for 10/07/2015

This review is from: Alpine Swiss Men’s Leather Spring Money Clip Front Pocket Wallet

Pros: -Very affordable
-Nice window for ID (Holds 2 ID's nicely)
-6 slots total
-Clip is very strong
-As of date, no stitching have come apart

Cons: -Feels as cheap as you pay for it
-Obnoxious clip
-Because of clip, 3rd card slot is only half deep

Other Thoughts: I got this on 6/14/2015 mostly because I don't like carrying a bulky wallet and never carry cash. I wanted the ID window because I need my ID to get on base or log into my PC so constantly pulling it out. The window holds both my ID's comfortably and isn't stretched so when only one is remaining, it still holds tight.

As for as durability, I have had this for almost 4 months and I keep this in my front pocket always. Constantly grabbing it to get my IDs or make purchases.

It is truly unfortunate that some of yours fell apart so easily as mine has been rock solid! The only thing I didn't like was the clip as I keep this in my front pocket. A ka-bar fixed that.
