Bluedio V (Victory) Pro Patented PPS12 Drivers Wireless Bluetooth headphones
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: First, I am not an audiophile. I simply love listening to high quality great music. These headphones work very well for my application. I get up early in the morning to work. I’m a photographer. I do my best editing at 4 AM. I also love to listen to great music at levels that would be unacceptable for my sleeping wife when I work – hence these puppies. 99% of the time I use them in Bluetooth mode, and they are flawless in my office. In fact, they are pretty good anywhere upstairs. If I get a cup of coffee – downstairs and on the other side of the house (~40 feet away) – they work, but I don’t recommend anything Bluetooth for such. I can't hear the difference between Bluetooth and S/PDIF. I'm sure it's measurable, BUT I can't tell. Bottom line: I am well pleased.

Cons: They are heavier and bulkier than the headphones they replace. No problem. They are worth it.

Samsung UN40JU6700FXZA 40-Inch 2160p 4K UHD Smart Curved LED TV - Black

5 out of 5 eggs I Love the Real Estate 04/28/2016

This review is from: Samsung UN40JU6700FXZA 40-Inch 2160p 4K UHD Smart Curved LED TV - Black

Pros: Pretty!!!
Big!!!
This is very smart TV on my desk. I love watching Netflix in UHD while sitting about 2 feet from the screen. It's addictive.
The little remote control that doubles a mouse/pointer is cool.
Playing games on it looks great to me, but I'm old and half blind (just kidding - kind'a).

Cons: It does not have a DisplayPort input. I know it's a TV, but that sure would be nice. I have a XFX AMD R9-FURY driving this puppy. It only has one HDMI port and three DisplayPorts. Many top-end video cards only have DisplayPorts (and yes, I know a DisplayPort can be a HDMI with the proper adapter - see Other below).

Other Thoughts: Like the guy that wrote a review before me, I had a hell of a time making this TV work as a monitor with my XFX R9-FURY. I was almost ready to send it back to Newegg. BUT, my bad - there is some weird interaction between this TV, a XFX R9-FURY, and a very expensive DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable that works sometimes and most of the time drops the resolution to simple HD (1920x1080) at any frequency. The fact that it was sporadic really bothered me. I was using the single HDMI port on my XFX R9-FURY to drive an old monitor. So, it took me awhile to try switching ports and cables (I know. I should have tried that right away - dah). When I drive this Samsung TV from an HDMI output through an HDMI cable to anyone of its four HDMI inputs, it work beautifully as a monitor at all frequencies up to 60 hz.

Folks this is a TV first and a monitor OBTW. For me, that's completely acceptable. I just wanted more screen real estate. If you are looking for a monitor for art or graphic design where you probably need to calibrate the color, this is probably not the right piece of equipment for you. It has more than enough color control for your living room, but it is hard to make it match colors and stay there. This is not a disadvantage to me, but it may be for you.
