    LG 48CX

    I am really torn on this TV as a monitor vs some other current and future monitors. I have a Radeon VII and a Threadripper 1920x CPU. I've been tinkering for fun with an LG UN7300 43 inch TV as a monitor and 4k is cool, running 3840x1620 ultrawide is cool sometimes as well. Seeing some reviews...

    New Sony XBR X950H

    I have been eyeballing the LG 49NANO85UNA. It is like the 48 inch CX OLED on a budget at around $680. Has the same video processor in it as the higher Nano 9 series LG, 120 Hz 4k with VRR, local dimming (unfortunately edge lit not full array), HDR, and HDMI 2.1. Seems like a winner and could...

    LG 48CX

    Seems like good news "LG has already confirmed that its 2020 OLED TVs will arrive with HDMI 2.1 and 100/120Hz refresh rates." Hopefully this also applies to the 48 and they are not dropping features on their smaller TVs like Samsung did with their QLEDs.

    55" LG C8 (€1,099) vs 55" Samsung Q9FN (€1,149)

    To avoid worrying about burn in get the Samsung. It should also support Freesync so that will give you a benefit over an OLED as well. I have a C8 at home, but it is my main TV and all we use it for is TV and Movie viewing. It is pretty rare for us to play games, but if we do it is normally only...

    144Hz Monitors pointless/useless?

    Sometimes it is nice to crank everything to max settings, but you have to wonder if you are even able to tell the difference. For instance shadow detail. I have never sat and looked at the detail of a shadow of someone (or NPC) I'm trying to shoot in a game, so player (or NPC) shadows are okay...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    You didn't like Mists of Pokemon Farmville either? That was when I truly quit wow the first time, for all but the last months of the expansion. I think the game is best played in the last 4-6 months of an expansion, then you can see all the content quicker and easier and spend less monthly fees...

    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    That is the same review copy and pasted over and over... I actually saw the movie and while I kind of liked it, on the whole it was pretty bad. After so many super hero movies lately a lot of parts seemed like a setup for the audience to cheer and enjoy, but ultimately just fell flat. I was in...

    Activision Blizzard Layoffs May Cause Key Talent to Leave

    Amazon game studios is already a thing. Corporations outside of the game industry want a piece of that pie.

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    From what I've read of Nvidias freesync "gsync" support, you are better off having the 144 Hz model. That and a new firmware supposedly makes the response time amazing.

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    The height of a 34 inch ultrawide is the same of a 27 inch monitor. Nothing ultrawide exists at the height of a 32 inch right now that I know of. I believe the 38 inch ultrawides are the height of a 30 inch.

    Samsung Unveils a Folding Smartphone

    I'll buy the "Pixel 5 Origami". This seems like a technology that the first generation looks cool, but you probably don't want to own it until 2nd or 3rd generation. Unless you are a rich tech junky that is, then have at it (someone needs to support it so we get gen 2, 3, etc.)

    What's new in the Ultrawide monitor world?

    Shorter. Even if it is wider your vertical screen real estate would be reduced. So if you played a game 16x9 aspect ratio you would just be rendering less and 1920x1080. There is a 1440 super ultrawide in the works though, but it won't be cheap. I think it is literally 5120x1440 which is two 27s...
