First 4k Monitor
Pros: This thing is GORGEOUS I'm moving from a 1080p laptop monitor to this and the differences are amazing. Not only am I finding more screen real estate moving to a higher resolutions but the colors seem deeper, and richer. Playing with the settings is a must to get the best results, but I've found it pretty easy to play with the menu. The thing that surprised me was even WITH game mode enabled the colors are still rich and vibrant. People are complaining about the off angles, but honestly, I'm playing games on this sitting pretty close to the monitor, that's not going to be an issue for me; if angles are an issue though, there are tilt settings in the menu. Which seemed interesting to me, but un-needed for my setup. Extra pro: Got this monitor on sale for $350, now I'm wishing I'd gotten two, for a dual screen setup.
Cons: The brightness of this screen is pretty high, and not easy to adjust as others have mentioned. The other thing I've noticed is that the power cord on my monitor likes to slip out easily. I don't move my monitor much so not a big deal, just a little frustrating, not enough for an egg removal.
Overall Review: I'm running an AMD graphics card and I was hoping Freesync would be enabled auto-magically, but you have to enable this yourself through the menu. No biggy, you set it and forget it.

I don't give a RAM
Pros: It all works as expected no problems with my motherboard. For reference I'm using a ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac AM4 AMD, it sees the RAM stick and runs at the correct speed. I just bought a second one to go to 32gb of memory. I've used this RAM with both a Windows 10 OS and an Arch Linux OS with no issues.
Pros: The build quality on this toothbrush is absolutely amazing, when you hold it you feel like this thing was built to last; its solid. The charging method and the carry case are just icing on the cake; it looks really nice sitting by the sink, unlike some of the other clunkier products, I'd rather hide under the sink....and thus never use. Ascetically pleasing
Cons: I only had one base to share with my ex so we kept having to switch the heads based on who was using it. Solved by buying a second one. The replacement heads are really expensive considering its just a small bit of plastic and some bristles. I haven't looked online, but at Bed Bath and Beyond where I first bought the product it was about $30 for two heads.
Overall Review: This has made brushing teeth feel fun again. I wake up everyday and get a gum massage.
I never knew...
Pros: I primarily game on my machine. I ran battlefield 3 with 4GB Ram, and looking at the task manager my processor (Phenom II x4) would be running at about 90% - 100% across all four cores, and my ram usage would level out at 3GB. After upgrading to 16GB I noticed the load on my CPU decrease to 80% load, and my RAM usage increase to 5 - 6GB! I never knew RAM had such a direct effect. On another note, Minecraft runs 1000x smoother once you allocate 10GB for it to run on.
Cons: When I first installed it I had issues, it was user error however because I didn't push one of the sticks in all the way...oops. :-/
Overall Review: Everything works perfect, even though the RAM is not officially supported by my Asus Crosshair IV motherboard. Awesome!
