Pros: Quiet operation and handles 1440p video and graphics are decent at 2160p, but I am not a gamer, so no feedback there. Installation was pretty simple, and I also have other monitors conected to an onboard card with no conflicts or issues. Occasionally I get the lower right quadrant of my display blacked out temporarily, but I believe that is an issue with my monitor.
Photoshop and Illustrator CC work fine even when using 2 different graphics cards (intel 3000 on-board). This is a problem Adobe graphics applications can have with dual card setups from different manufacturers. No guarantees though, as your mobo could influence this.
Cons: Have this paired with an Acer UHD monitor B286HK, and although most issues I have are the fault of the monitor, the frame shipping on 4K 2160p video is the fault of this video card. It seems the 2G memory is not sufficient. I knocked an egg off because I could not find any clear indication of video performance from EVGA, or nVidia.

Other Thoughts: Measure to make sure it fits!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Keypad, screen backlighting, sound and 3 usb ports. graphics capabilities.
Cons: Touchpad jumps around all over the place, so not recommended for any uses requiring precision. Updates by synaptics or lenovo did anything to improve it. Windows 8 is a definite 2nd choice, and unfortunately a "downgrade" to windows 7 was not available. Battery life is around an hour using office applications & max power savings
Other Thoughts: I upgraded the memory to the max 16GB and added a 500GB Samsung EVO PCI Express SSD which I use as my C drive (fits in vacant PCI Express slot - easy insertion). Previously I had tried using readyboost with a 64GB UHS Class 1 SD Card, but the performance increase was negligible, so with the SSD C drive the readyboost SD card became redundantREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: reasonable color representation and brightness appears good. Excellent base and height/swivel adjustment parameters. The 28" screen is not too small to utilize the full pixel density.
Cons: I had to knock 2 eggs off for receiving a monitor with diagonal connected series of 6 black pixels. 1 or 2 together I could handle, but SIX!?
There also appears to be a small crack or possibly a deep scratch about 18mm long in the screen. The shipping box was undamaged, so I can only assume the defects were present when it came off the production line.
There should be some documentation about the excellent stand or how it works. The weight of the monitor is offset by a spring loaded base.
Other Thoughts: I don't have time to return the monitor for replacement as I need it for work every day. My solution is just to not buy Acer products again as this arrived looking like a refurb. I prefer that Acer offer me a discount for shipping a damaged product. Still... I would not buy Acer again.READ FULL REVIEW
