This review is from: Ergotron 45-235-194 Neo-Flex Extend LCD Arm
Pros: Ordered three of these to solve the problem of my keyboard and mouse bumping into the monitor stands on my 3-monitor video editing workstation.
Quality workmanship, solid design, sufficient packaging and very functional.
Mounts solidly on the desk with just a single 1/4" hole (I didn't use the very sturdy edge clamps).
No problem routing the monitor cable, power cable and two USB cables inside the swing-arms.
Three of these are much more flexible than any 3-monitor mounting system.
I can now slide my keyboard and mouse under my monitors without constantly banging into the monitor bases.
Cons: I would prefer a little less play in the joints of the flex arms but it's not a real problem.
Would also like to see a ruler or height scale on the vertical support bar - This would make setting the height on multiple monitors a breeze.
Pros: Cool, quiet and energy efficient and still handles parallel processing like a champ.
Cons: I purchased this card to replace a GeForce 9800 our backup video workstation. When I first installed it, Sony Vegas 12 would lock up every time I attempted to render.
After much research and testing, I discovered that if I set the Dynamic Ram to 0 (zero) in Sony Vegas, the card would work fine.
Pretty sure it's a driver issue and not an issue with Sony Vegas as all of my older NVIDIA cards ran fine. I also have the same problem on my machine with the Quadro K4000.
I would have rated 4 stars but when I pay pro prices, I expect the card to work with pro editors.
Other Thoughts: I also purchased the K4000 for our primary workstation and had the chance to test both cards in both a new 1155 socket 6-core i7 machine and a very early i7 4-core machine. Other than the driver issues mentioned above, the K2000 performed nearly as well as the K4000 in the older machine making it a better value for a slower machine with other "bottlenecks" - for a faster machine, the K4000 shows a greater performance increase.
Test results: (short 1080p test clip with lots of FX, 4 tracks and numerous transitions)
