    Samsung UN40KU6300 40-Inch 4K

    Thanks for that in depth post Ashun. I had mentioned the same thing that I've seen on two of these displays now earlier in this thread, and was basically told my settings were wrong. Well with the correct settings it still happens. I use this monitor mostly for desktop work and coding, so it...

    Samsung UN40KU6300 40-Inch 4K

    I don't think that's an option in either GPU settings for standard desktop resolution, to be able to set a resolution above the monitor resolution and downscale. The option to scale either on the GPU or the monitor generally refers to upscaling, IE. if you have a 1080p monitor and you only have...

    Samsung UN40KU6300 40-Inch 4K

    I'd actually be really interested if others here could try reducing the brightness and seeing if the smearing becomes apparent. I'd like to know if it happens on every screen or if there is still a bit of a panel lottery.

    What are your settings? I wonder if you turn the brightness down to about 30 if you'll see it too.

    Samsung UN40KU6300 40-Inch 4K

    So I thought I'd post some of my experiences with this as a productivity and gaming monitor. I actually started with the Vizio 43" E-series one at Best Buy, which worked well enough, but actually had burn in issues with white backgrounds like you would have on a desktop. But both an open box and...

    Only 20 years? That's just ridiculous... I still own all my hard drives from 20 years ago!

    Netflix on Mint

    Did you change the User Agent in your browser? Use something like this: Firefox 15 Windows seems to work well

    Complete FX-8320 Build, 7850, 8GB, 1TB $420 AR; Shell Shocker

    Not sure if serious. As to "who would get an AMD 8-core over a 2500k for $160", I raise my hand... In any case, I agree that the case and power supply are poopy, but still seems like a decent price for the hardware.

    Sennheiser HD 598 $150 - Fry's in-store

    Yeah they are super comfy. As to the gaming, I did try it out a bit last night with Batman: AO, from my Fiio E7 USB Dac/Amp. I did notice the directional sound was ok, not great, it did jump slightly from in front to the side, and behind. But I assume a decent gaming soundcard would help...

    Sennheiser HD 598 $150 - Fry's in-store I picked these up a few days ago. I like them... a lot. Not bass heavy, but you can hear the bass clearly, and well, everything else pretty clearly as well. Anyways, these retailed for $300 about 2 years ago, I think they are...

    AMD FX-8120 $124.99 ends 10/9

    The AMD or Intel chip? In any case, they're both quad-cores, so 8 cores obviously gives you some more breathing room. I'll also point out that about a year ago on my i7 laptop, running a Windows VM wth more than 1 core enabled with Virtualbox caused a lot of slowdown. Pretty sure it was a...

    AMD FX-8350 TODAY AT TD $169.99

    You mean Intel 8-thread CPU's, right? The 2600/3770/4770 are all still 4-core CPU's that are hyperthreaded.
