    Need a good monitor, mine got busted.. I haven't researched in years, what's good for a 200 to 300$ budget Used or New?

    I was on a DELL S2415H monitor. It was true 8bit, it got busted so I ordered BenQ GW2480 off amazon thinking it'd be an upgrade, but it feels like a downgrade. It uses 6bit + 2 bit FRC dithering and just generally feels weird on my eyes TBH I'm debating on buying another S2415H, or maybe going...

    Need a Monitor for Consoles

    Hey, I need a 1080P monitor for consoles, 60hz preferably as I'm use to that, an IPS without dithering preferred, I had a bad experince with dithering before (where it trys to make true 10bit or 8 bit by flashing colors instead of laying them in the RGB positions like IPS does) I'm hoping to...

    Lowest input lag HDTV or Monitor for gaming (IPS panel)

    Hey, I want to get a PS3 and SSFIV and need to get a 32" HDTV with low input lag. I heard if you connect ps3 to these TVs with HDMI to component cables (or VGA i forgot) you can bypass the internal filtering that slows down the input response. I'm trying to find one under 1frame if possible...

    Dell U2311H

    360 has support for 16:10 resolutions, I wish PS3 would add it but It stretches the images from 16:9 on all 16:10 monitors without 1:1 scaling. I just looked up on deals site and they're having a deal right now on the U2311H for 239$, today's the last day so I have to decide by the end of the...

    Thinking of buyin the Swans M200MKII

    The MKIII are out of my budget ATM, TAI usually has sales though, would be fortunate if they had a discount on them next month. About the rear firing port: How far away would I need to have the back of speakers away from wall? Would 1 foot be enough or half a foot? I could adjust my desk for...

    Thinking of buyin the Swans M200MKII

    Thanks! I got another quick question. I was reading a review on Audio engine A5's and the person said you should keep the speakers at least 1 foot away from the wall or the sound would become muddy and distorted. For any of the owners with the Swans can you place it right up against the wall...

    Thanks for explaining that to me, I don't really need it perfect, but atleast around 2.1 - 2.3 would be nice, I was using someone elses gamma profile last night and it looked like the test was around 2.2, but now that's it's daytime it looks like it's at 2.4 gamma, does it change depended on...

    Oh, I had just found out how to do this test properly, I tried it with 10e's profile and got similar to yours 2.2 - 10%, 2.2 - 25%, then like 2.4 - 48% (man the first 4 were really hard to see, especially the blue) at the 2.4 it looked like they had just started to blend it, (are they suppose...

    quick question about gamma

    Hey, I'm wondering about the gamma test over at http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php do they mean it should be as closely matched to the two big fat lines sticking out at 2.2, or the thing with the little grids going down it? Also, should the colors at 2.2 blend in perfectly...
