Have had both 1800x, 2700x and now 3950x. Must say that the 3950x is the first of the 3 that feels really stable. Can now run my G.Skill 3200 mhz CL14 in the 3200 mhz they are meant for which did not go either 1800x or 2700x. Worth noting is that I ride my almost 3 year old Asus Crosshair VI Hero, awesome by AMD that they keep the pedestal alive for so long! I run a small game studio and doubling the number of cores means a lot. For example, I bake our smallest scene in 36 minutes instead of 53 minutes in 2700x. Will be fun to test our larger scenes which take around 6 hours to bake. update: Replaced the radiator block for an EK Velocity and added a little more paste (3 clicks) than before. Now the prologue is going a little better, with the PBO switch on in the cinema booster CPU to 4150mhz all core in the Cinebench R20 and to 4350 all core in CPU-z (both load CPU 100 percent as little fun it gets different clock, assuming cinebench uses heavier CPU instructions: D). In Cinebench, I peak at 75 degrees while a little lower in CPU-z. Get 9692 in cinebench when the computer is completely cold and 9615-9625 when the computer has been for a while, so it seems that the boost is temp sensitive even if you stay under throttle temps.

Used this for a week now. Unfortunately, I'll be able to connect with the others. Plus The sound is good (Anyway with my small satellites) Calibration works well, also adjusts the level of the sub which is nice Minus No lighting on the feather, I will use multi-rail is the idea so not so serious It seems to add in a few seconds to HDMI handshake, which makes it really tough as my projector is not the fastest to shake. Update: Spotify connect stops working every few months. You have to pull out the feed for it to restart and then it works

Vera refuses to fix the integration against Fibaro so, for example, commands for Double Switch 2 means that all subsequent commands to other devices will be delayed by up to one minute. If you have Fibaro modules, avoid Vera Update: Increases two stars, with new firmware, Fibaro now mounts without delays

Bought this to have as a clock radio with alarm. I notice no problem with the fact that it loses the connection as others write here, but I have a stable wifi. My grade is mainly as an alarm clock and there it has some disadvantages It has variable snooze which is good, but you cannot preselect eg 10 minutes snooze, but when the alarm triggers, you should press several times snooze, 5 min snooze per press. So for 10 min 2 pressures, a little awkward when half-sleeping. However, an advantage that you can snooza different depending on circumstances. But I would probably have liked an option to hard-code snooze to 10 min. OLED brightness on LOW is far too bright so it disturbs when you have to sleep so I have switched off the screen during standby, you have to press snooze to see the clock, a little bent. One plus is that the watch is big and clear, I am near-sighted and see the watch without glasses which is nice, hard to put on them to see in the middle of the night. The sound is okay, nothing extravagant but quite okay for the small size. Update: pulls off a star because the clock in snoozel mode is small in the right corner. So I who have glasses does not see what the watch is, but I have to move all over to the bedside table. A bit tough if you want to snooza once more but don't know what the clock is. It feels like the product has not been tested for real, which is a bit of a shame. Update: Pulls a star as it sometimes hangs for a few months and you have to pull out the cable for reset. Also often the internet radio does not work and you get a loud cry as an alarm clock

My 5-year-old favorite Christmas gift this year. Put the whole Christmas holiday with this. He is a little too small to fix the programming himself, but it will probably. Good to build via tablet, be skeptical first: D Update: Still his favorite toy, and now he can build completely himself and even program some simpler scenarios, he understands loops and random values. Great toy for a 5-6 year old is this toy.

Really good picture after calibration. A little much IPS shimmer on my copy but perfectly okay. Have not tested my screen with freesync since i have nvidia but apparently freesync should fuss on this. Now that nvidia releases freesync, it should be tested. But think it works well with vsync off fax view. But I am well used to ignoring tearing: D Run with the settings recommended by tft center for minimal blur etc, and the screen works great for gaming I think.

Really good small speakers. Run these with an Elac 2030 sub, work well and compact and stylish. The sound is actually really good for movies. Also work perfectly okay for music. On my amplifier you have to set that the speakers are small so that it uses sub-stereo stereo or it sounds too clumsy about music and other 2.0 content.

Bought these to Sambon so do not test them themselves so I can give a review on the sound, they think they sound a bit clumsy. But now the sound has stopped working in one of the naps. Seems to be a common problem. debris Product

Applying it to a Euroscreen Diplomat Tab Tension canvas and it works perfectly. Send parameter 29 and it auto-calibrates and after that it has a full check on where the screen is located
