Seiki Pro SM40UNP 40.0-Inch 4K LED-Lit Monitor

4 out of 5 eggs Very Clear 4K Monitor 12/29/2015

This review is from: Seiki Pro SM40UNP 40.0-Inch 4K LED-Lit Monitor

Pros: Very nice monitor – very clear. Easy to set up, thanks to the other reviewers here. Even at 200%, the text is crystal clear.

Cons: No remote. No speakers. OSD is not that good. Must use displayport 1.2 and 60Hz to make it work well (no mouse lag) at 3840x2160 (4K).

Other Thoughts: On monitor’s OSD, set the displayport to 1.2. Then go into Nvidia control panel and scroll down to PC setting. That is where the 60Hz is available on the right. After that, I set my text size to the maximum, 200%. This is a good deal when it's on sale.

ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: Just about everything is better and faster with this router, like the wireless speed & range. But the single most significant thing was how fast the router responded to configuration changes. It must have been the 256mb of memory.

Cons: The only con is that you must go through the initial dashboard setup first. Then, and only then, can you go to more advanced settings. Even a firmware update must wait for the first initial setup to be completed.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait for the wireless AC USB adapters to come out!

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 Max IOPS PCI-E 240GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RVD3MIX2-FHPX4-240G

Pros: Fast. Better than any previous RevoDrive - and I've had them all. Easy to setup, works well, no issues.

Cons: Price. It's expensive. Even on sale, there is a premium for this speed. For example, going from a 240 GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS to this is about a 25% speed increase. But the cost is about a 100% increase (about (double).

Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskMark speed tests:
