Pros: Very tight timings of 9-9-9-24. It's XMP profile ready so if your motherboard supports it just set it via BIOS.
Other Thoughts: This is not a con but I had an issue with one of the sticks on my ASRock Extreme6 Z97 motherboard. Memtest86+ 5.01 reports the same memory error location on test #7. So I swapped sticks around and error went away. Figured it was just a fluke. Then I temporarily removed the RAM sticks and swapped the CPU heat sink with something better and reinstalled the RAM it failed the test again. So rather wait for me not having a computer while RMA sends me the replacement I ordered an identical set with intentions to populate this computer to 32 gigs anyway. I moved those sticks to different slot on the motherboard and placed the new sticks in it's place. So far all 4 sticks are running without an issue after running MEMTEST86+ several passes. So I don't know exactly what happened or if it's just a fluke. I will run the memtest again in a couple of weeks. It's probably fine as it'll either work or not. G.Skill's lifetime warranty makes me feel better knowing they stand behind their products.
It's really hard to say if it's a problem with my motherboard or the stick. For now I'm satisfied that it's working just fine on my Linux Mint 17. Really fast system now paired with Intel i7 4970 processor.
Pros: Easy to set up. Great looking display!!
Cons: Not big con but auto calibration should be automatic at first and second power up.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these when it was on sale and very good displays.
As I mentioned in the con section it should have automatically calibrate itself to the video card you are using. Because after messing around with my video card settings trying to clear up the "ghosting" or slight blurring of the screen I realize that I have to "reset" the settings on the monitor to defaults so it can also calibrate the resolution to the video card I am using.
Once I did that I now have picture perfect screen on both monitors.
Brightness, colors, saturation on both displays are exactly the same after I did the reset.
I haven't tried some of the advanced features on the CDs as I tried to enable dual monitor mode in the settings of the monitor and said the software on my PC isn't loaded. This may only work in HDMI..don't know yet as I am only using two DVI connections from my Radeon HD 6950 card.
Overall very happy with the purchase.

Pros: Easy to setup. Build-in wizard to guide you through the setup. Hardware button selection mode.
Cons: The only con I see is that it does NOT support HTTPS in it's web GUI. This is especially important if you use remote management on this device.
Other Thoughts: Very easy to use and setup. First thing I did was update the firmware which was several versions behind. Noticed they were supporting the Russia stuff with it. The recent firmware update they removed it. Not sure what the benefits would be since I'm in USA so it's moot point.
The biggest issue I see that it does NOT support HTTPS (SSL). I don't see anywhere in the settings to enable this. Mind you I'm an advanced network guru and do this for a living.
Reason I say this it's because when I switched it to router mode you have to connect it via the wireless which is in the clear with no encryption so anybody nearby can sniff your admin password so what I had do is use the default user ID and password of admin just so I can log onto it and then enable the wireless security. Once I've done that I can go ahead and change the admin password. There is no way to set this up while in "client access" mode. There is where HTTPS (ssl) would been nice. However, once you set this up and wireless security enabled then it's not big of a deal. From then on everything you do will be secured.
Besides that con everything works well with it. Love the pleather carrying case. Although was a little curious as to why it needs two USB connections just to power it when it should only use one. Not a big con but something to keep in mind with limited USB ports.
Other than that love the wireless-N option. A little disappointed that it does not support 5Ghz but at this price point when it's on sale not really going to complain.
Overall happy with it.
