IOGEAR GKM561R Black 2.4GHz Wireless HTPC Multimedia Keyboard with Laser Trackball and Scroll Wheel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good range
Batteries last a long time (1+ year)
Good keyboard layout.
Trackball works good.
Light.
Cheap.

Cons: Nothing. Yup nothing.

Other Thoughts: I have owned 4 or 5 of these over the years for my various HTPC setups. So far they have worked great. These usually go for $40-50 and outperform even $80 ones I have bought. Out multiple years and muptiples one I can honestly say none have died on me and i rarely have to replace batteries. I am overall very happy with these.

I would recommend these over more expensive/heavier models which didn't last as long.

Foxconn nT-i2847 Intel NM70 1 x 204Pin Intel HD Graphics Integrated by CPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap
Low power
Small form factor.
Real computer.
Hardware accelerated video decoding.

Cons: Could be a bit faster

Other Thoughts: This worked great on a trusty (14.04) install of ubuntu with xbmc. Plays 1080p h264 (high bit-rate) files with no problems with audio over HDMI. Video is accelerated using VAAPI to offload decoding to the GPU, worked for every file I tried.

Even without GPU decoding on mplayer2 it was fast enough to play high bit-rate 720p bluray rips. All in all well worth the $150. Slapped a SSD and 4 GB of ram and with a wireless keyboard/mouse (IOGEAR GKM561R) it makes a great HTPC able to handle everything I throw at it for under $300 completed. It boots quite fast with the SSD and with a full ubuntu install can be used for doing browsing and other stuff, etc...

Seiki SE39UY04 39” Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great for Desktop work. Great for gaming. 01/17/2014

This review is from: Seiki SE39UY04 39” Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: 3840x2160 resolution.
120Hz @ 1920x1080
Good Color
Good Viewing Angles
AWESOME CONTRAST
Good response time.
Low Input lag (at non-4k resolutions)

Cons: 30Hz @ 3840x2160.

Other Thoughts: If you reflash this display with the 50 inch models firmware it fixes an issue where it will correctly display 120Hz @ 1080p without frame skipping. It also does perfect pixel doubling at 1080p with this firmware mode which is ideal for computer use so its the biggest 120Hz S-MVA panel I am aware of.

Contrast ratio is *excellent* and much better than IPS. Colors/viewing angles are almost as good as an IPS display and the extra contrast makes up for this which makes me feel this looks better than most IPS displays.

There is almost no latency when scaling at lower resolutions. It has one frame of input lag. This means only ~8ms when running 1920x1080@120Hz. Also putting it down to 1280x720 @240Hz helps decrease this to ~4ms of latency for those who need as little input lag as possible.

First person shooters on a 39 inch display at 120Hz is awesome. Most games couldn't hit good frame rates at 4k anyway so just put it at 1080p for games and get the awesome 120Hz smoothness.

The 30hz is really not bad for regular desktop use as a monitor (browsing, programming, playing video). Its really only gaming where that is a problem but the 120Hz gives you an excellent alternative for gaming. I think for most serious gamers the responsiveness is more important than resolution anyway and 1080p is still not bad for doing 120Hz gaming.

Considering this display has gone as cheap as $400 online it makes it an excellent value and would recommend to many people.
