Pros: Put about 8TB of files on and it reads fine.
Overall Review: Will only power up one day every few months to update backup. Hope it lasts until obsoleted by new tech.
Pros: I haven't noticed any bad pixels. Nice 1440 HDMI images.
Cons: With a black background, it's kind of gray. Not as much contrast as some monitors. It does vary depending on the viewing angle. On my wall mount which is not easy to raise, it's not very dark looking down slightly. Straight on it's not bad.
Overall Review: Good value and looks good showing YouTube and most movies. Just wish the blacks were a little darker.
Pros: Plays 4K 60p video, no dropped frames.
Does everything I need.
Overall Review: I'll continue to use these AMD APUs for basic systems.
Cons: Sub-woofer line out on the receiver didn't work from day one. I used the speaker level inputs on my sub and that worked OK for a short time. The unit completely stopped making any sound less than a week after installation. The USB input doesn't even recognize working thumb drives with music on them. I've already mailed the rebate so Newegg won't take it back without the UPC on the box. This door-stop replaced a 20 year old Pioneer receiver that I now have to get out of the closet until I can buy another brand of receiver. This is my last Newegg purchase (15 year customer) and my last Pioneer purchase.
Overall Review: This purchase makes me feel very cheated.
Pros: Sure it will work when/if it shows up.
Cons: DHL/USPS shipping is very slow.
Overall Review: If you need it in a week or less, use another type of shipping.
Pros: Works great on Vista Media Center. I can watch OTA from antenna and analog cable. HD programming on local stations is fantastic and analog cable isn't bad on my 24" monitor.
Cons: The software is bad. If you're not using Vista don't bother. I could not get this to work well on a fresh install of XP Pro SP3 or MCE 2005. I actually switched my main computer from XP to Vista Ultimate to use this card and it's worth it since I already had a copy of Vista.
Overall Review: Download the latest driver from the Hauppauge site. They may get the PVR/TV software stable in the future but at this time it's junk.
Pros: Watching HDTV (OTA) on this monitor looks as good as any HDTV I've seen. Blacks may not be as dark as many TVs but the clarity and color is fantastic.
Cons: None yet.
