Battery Problem

DELL Laptop Latitude Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 (1.83GHz) 1GB Memory 40GB HDD 14.1" Windows XP Professional D620 40GB XPP
DELL Laptop Latitude Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 (1.83GHz) 1GB Memory 40GB HDD 14.1" Windows XP Professional D620 40GB XPP

Pros: Everything seemed fine at first. Wireless worked great and installed MS Office and anti-virus.

Cons: Charged the battery. Showed 99% and 3+ hours. 10 minutes later 6% and shut down.

Overall Review: Now not sure if I should return and risk getting the same problem or to just buy a new battery. One egg for this one

Using as a computer monitor.

Samsung UN40KU6290 40-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model)

Pros: Being new to 4K I didn't know much about how this might work out but took a chance after reading up a little bit. I am running an AMD Phenom II X4 B95 3.00 GHz processor with 16 GB of ram on Windows 10 Pro with pretty much all their intrusive apps turned off. Built this system on the cheap spending less than $250. I knew I would need a video card that would have hdmi 2.0b to run this thing so I purchased an MSI Radeon RX 460 DirectX 12 RX 460 2G OC 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card for $100. After all is said and done I am freaking blown away by this TV as a monitor. I was worried that there would be some type of ghosting or other problems but this thing is amazingly clear. The Excel spreadsheet I use for my home budget is as clear as any monitor I have used and 4 times the size. Don't laugh. Excel spreadsheets look really bad on TV's but with this screen they look fantastic. The sample videos I found on YouTube from Sony look and play amazing. Granted I have a very fast internet connection but I was worried about streaming content with my cheapo system. Everything worked and looked stellar.

Cons: No cons here, just some comments. Update the drivers on your video card. Mine worked fine for the first 24 hours but started to drop the signal to the TV. After the update no issues. Windows 10 Pro defaulted scaling to 300 %. You need to get that where it is comfortable for you. I was using a 23" monitor so going up to a 40" at 4K was actually reducing the pixel size if I ran it at 100% scaling. 125% seems to be be correct to keep it at the same resolution. If you need even more detail run at 100%.

Overall Review: I haven't messed with the other features on this TV but it has a lot of options as a smart TV. I purchased for a monitor so I cannot comment on anything else.
