Pros: Fanless, and doesn't get too hot.
Makes 4K 60Hz out the HDMI with no problems.
Has all the popular connectors.
Cons: Thin PCB, I hope this doesn't affect reliability. So far so good.
Bulky heatsink, but does fit in 2 slots.
Other Thoughts: I bought this card to drive a Samsung 4K TV, and I needed something respectable to drive that 4K display. I ran Google Earth Flight Sim and it was smooth as glass. I must have been getting close to 60fps. It's fanless, and doesn't get too hot.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Makes 60Hz 4K output no problems.
Fanless, gets warm, but not too hot.
Has all the popular video connectors.
Cons: Thinner than usual PCB. I hope this doesn't reduce reliability. So far so good. Kind of bulky heat sink, but it fits in 2 slots.
Other Thoughts: I bought a Samsung 4K TV, and needed something respectable to drive that TV with. The card is not a particularly fast card, but decent for the work I do. The results are fantastic. I was flying Google Earth flight simulator and it was smooth as glass. I must have been doing close to 60fps. Very nice. With the Samsung TV it's increadable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung UN40HU6950 40" Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
Pros: The resolution by far.
Not real big, but larger than a regular computer monitor.
The quad display.
The streaming TV feature. (This is really cool)
Small chrome browser built into the TV.
Good integration with the background picture for input selection.
Lots of other interesting features.
Cons: Using the mouse remote control can be a bit frustrating. I detect a bit of gyroscope pres-session or something like that.
Wonkey app interface that uses only a few keys on the keyboard, and no mouse support. Hmmm...
Other Thoughts: The picture produced by this panel is amazing. It's not real fast as far as pixel response time but much better that my old monitor. The picture is very smooth, and realistic. I had to turn down the brightness quite a bit. I have the back lighting set to 0. I'm using this panel as a computer monitor, but I do watch TV from a Hauppauge card on the PC. When watching TV, the received broadcast ATSC signal gets upconverted to 4K with a very good algorithm that looks like it does a good clean interpolation. So the broadcast TV looks better than a 1080 panel even though 1080 is what is broadcasted. The icons and text are so small, that I have to make them larger to see them. Photos look silky smooth on this monitor. The OS seems to be tightly controlled, and I have not yet found a way to pull back the main application and get access to the underlying OS. There are some Apps, but they all have this wonky interface. The browser is good, but my PC is better. You will want to connect a good optical mouse, and keyboard to it.. I like how I can use this second mouse to get at the overlay screen, and control the monitor input and other things. As a TV the picture is amazing, but the smart TV part of it is a bit difficult to use. As a computer monitor it's perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
