Mobo cannot boot with this card1/25/2015 1:29:12 PM

Pros: On paper, it's exactly what I wanted - a single fanless 2GB card to drive two 30" 2560x1600 monitors (via DVI-D and HDMI). For serious work :)

Cons: With the card installed, the motherboard GA-X79-UP4 would display its logo screen, but would not go into the Bios or the normal boot sequence (load RAID drivers...etc). This happens way before Windows loads, so it has nothing to do with the OS drivers for the graphic card. Of course, I tried all the usual suspects (change slot, change cable, change bios PEG/PCI settings, change monitor) that sometimes prevent mobos from posting. I'm sure there is some obscure setting that, in combination with a goat sacrifice will solve the problem. But I have lots of egging work to do and no time to troubleshoot a product that should work out of the box.

Pretty good value for the price (but not quite there yet)8/10/2014 5:14:32 PM

Pros: 4K at a price that is hard to beat. As a TV, this deserves 5 stars.

Cons: If you use this monitor for text-based work, you will notice notable aliasing and ghosting. This is particularly obvious for black text on white background. To reduce it, turn the "sharpness" in the setup menu to 0. I assume Seiki has a built-in sharpening filter that plays havoc with vector images. Setting the sharpness to 0 reduces this but does not eliminate it altogether. So, in summary, this monitor is not quite there yet for text or graphic work.

Does not seem to work with Dell U30148/10/2014 1:50:03 PM

Pros: None so far, since I cannot get the card to work at a sufficient resolution with a Dell U3014.

Cons: The card does not seem to support a Dell U3014 monitor at its native resolution of 2560x1600. It cannot run it at a resolution higher than 1920x1080. Of course, I have a DVI-D cable. In fact, the exact same setup works fine with an Nvidia 610 card. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Manufacturer Response:
Hello, We're sorry you had issues with this card. This setup should work, perhaps the monitor isnt being detected by the AMD drivers? did you install them without an anti-virus or firewall? neweggsupport@xfxforce.com. Thank you
