This review is from: Changhong 42" Class UHD LED TV - UD42YC5500UA
Pros: These are good for extended desktops without using multiple monitors. They really are 4 x 21" 1920x1080 monitors in a single package. Once you get used them, it's hard to go back to multiple monitors.
Cons: Not for gaming. Nor are there any affordable 4k monitors with the required hardware in existence yet. Nor is the pixel aspect ratio a good choice for games. You want 3 x 1920, not double height.
Other Thoughts: This is constant complaint since affordable 4k TV's have arrived on the scene. I have 4 so far. I can look at an entire CAD blueprint without panning, or have 2 blueprints, a spreadsheet, and a PDF on the screen to compare notes. If you buy one to run games, you failed to do any basic research. You can find out in less than 5 minutes games suck on 4k TVs. So if you buy one for games, you get 1 egg (on your face).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit
Pros: Most installs require NO drivers. It will even install on notebooks without drama. It can SEE the network by default. Boot time is stupid fast especially with SSD.
Cons: Like all versions, there will be machines that are finicky and trouble to install. But FAR fewer than any other version of Windows to date. The interface is goofy until you get used to it.
Other Thoughts: I hated it at first. Now after a few months, I'm no longer building with Win7-Pro. 8.1 Pro is a superior OS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: Backlit keys, good feel, good spacing.
Full sized, and heavy.
Cons: Well, a little more snap would be nice, but this isn't a $150 keyboard. Keys a bit too smooth, a little texture would be nice.
Other Thoughts: If you type a lot, and don't have a huge budget, this is almost as good as my $150 Cherry Mechanical.READ FULL REVIEW
