Pros: Great color reproduction. 4k@60 is fantastic, especially for gaming. Build quality is great.
Cons: None really. Previous panel had a dead pixel but this one is perfect.
Other Thoughts: For some reason mine shipped without the back input cover. No idea why. That in combination with a damaged stand makes me not want to order from either ASUS or newegg again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fantastic looking screen. Pretty much everything about it is great: 4k, 60 Hz, etc.
Cons: Unfortunately my screen has a stuck pixel. So what would otherwise be a 5-star review is a 2-star review.
Other Thoughts: I don't think waiting 2 weeks to fix a dead pixel is worth it. Thankfully the stuck pixel is near the edge of the screen so it isn't distracting. But I'm disappointed in ASUS for sending me a defective monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card looks great, performs great, and stays quiet. The R9 290 overclocks relatively well, but I didn't get so lucky with my card. At the price I bought it, this card was a steal since the bitcoin mining craze is over. Unless you are overclocking this card uses less than 200W on full gaming load.
Cons: Card can get pretty loud when overclocking, but that's to be expected I guess. As the fans ramp up, the fan sends heavy vibrations throughout the shroud and hits the heatsink at high frequencies causing an unbearable highspeed clicking noise. It can be fixed by modding the fans with rubber silencers, though. Note that this a design flaw, and every R9 290 tri-x will have this problem--and not just mine.
Other Thoughts: Great card, but the manufacturer didn't think of everything when making this card (e.g. vibration dampening). At $400+ I would expect more from Sapphire.READ FULL REVIEW
