Atyme 43-inch 4K LED TV
Atyme 43-inch 4K LED TV

Pros: I'd purchased two of these... a bit of a risk as I have not purchased from this brand before, but I got good deal and needed another 4k display for my web development work, along with replacing a living room tv that had died. I'd seen a couple notes about the display looking too sharp but thought I'd live with it. Once getting them set up I realized the SHARP control was completely disabled on the HDMI feed from my PC. After contacting support, we emailed a number of times working to isolate what was going on. Their engineers were able to resolve the situation and provide an updated firmware the enabled control of the SHARP setting, which has made a big difference on how text looks. I have been in the audio/visual/tech world for over 30 years and was pleasantly surprised. Atyme (thanks Alan!!) was very helpful in correcting this firmware issue. If anyone else has this problem, you can visit their site at http://www.atyme.net and you'll find the Firmware link under SUPPORT. I would not call this a 'high end' display but I knew that... that should be a given when comparing pricing/features. That said, Atyme worked hard to solve the issue and I've been very happy with the results.

Cons: None...

Overall Review: Other positives are a great viewing angle and it was packed really (really) well. The built in speakers aren't anything special but I don't think people buy tv's because of their amazing sound. Very happy with the purchase.

4 gigs, no problems

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4

Pros: Fast ram. All four sticks I've gotten from NewEgg have worked great. Minor issue on the Crosshair motherboard... have to put the BIOS setting in SLI mode to get the CAS at 4-4-4-12 (Crosshair didn't see it automatically). I've heard people have OC'd to 1g though I've not tried. I can tell you at 800 mHz, they are cool to the touch.

Cons: None. These work great..

Overall Review: Windows Vista Business (32 bit) doesn't quite see all of it (about 3.6 gigs). I've read this is an issue with 32 bit versions of XP/Vista. Maybe once developers get 64 bit drivers out, I can actually use the capabilities of my 64 bit processor.
