    Password Managers: Bitwarden vs Google Password Manager

    Another LastPass user here. I pay for Premium and it has worked pretty well for me on both PC and mobile. It can be a bit clunky at times but does the job and I have no complaints.

    Thanks for this thread. Game wasn't on my radar at all and now it is for sure.

    RTINGS.com ICC Profiles don't seem to work?

    I've never had success with ICC profiles created by others on my monitors. I've had results that were worse than stock. I use Rtings or TFT Central menu calibration settings as a start point and spend a bit of my own time so the image is reasonable and then leave it. If you really need a real...

    How many games have you refunded?

    None. I check out the initial reviews and avoid beta testing or games that sound bad. Later on if things get fixed and I'm interested I'll buy. That has worked pretty well for me over the years.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Finished TLOS Left Behind on normal, then grounded, then got the last 2 trophies to get 'em all. I am starting on the Uncharted series again. Remastered this time as I got the platinum on the first 3 when I had my PS3. I own, but never played Uncharted 4 so I'm working back through the story to...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I just finished The Last of Us (first one). I actually played through it almost 4 times to get all of the trophies besides the Online ones. I first ran through it in Normal mode. Then I started a Grounded + playthrough. I realized to get all the trophies including all shiv doors, etc. I was not...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I just finished playing through Mass Effect 1 - 3 again. I thought that part 3 was much better with all the DLC installed. Now I'm starting on The Last of Us which I've embarrassingly never finished.

    Post Your Connection Speed

    For me to from what I had before which was something like 150/12 to go to the 1000/45 it was actually about $15 a month cheaper for the year and then it went back up to what I was paying before so it was a no-brainer. I was actually not as excited about the gig down as I was about my upload...

    Xfinity (Comcast) Gigabit Internet. Supposed to get a gig down and 35 Mbps up. For the most part over the years we haven't had any issues and if there were a tech was out pretty promptly.

    Suggest post-apocalyptic game

    This. The Stalker series has some of the best post-apocalyptic ambiance ever done in gaming. The Metro series does it right too.

    RPG Game Suggestion For Girlfriend

    I think you are asking for a tough combo there. Good looking game, modern, and not too complex. The RPG genre pretty much loves complexity. Honestly I would just try to find the highest quality story that appeals to her. Maybe if she likes it find one that she can play as a female character...

    Shenmue 3 Trailer Announces August 2019 Release Date

    Definitely can't wait for this. After all this time. I just got my copy of Shenmue 1 and 2 for the PS4. I'm busy studying for a test this upcoming Saturday, but once I get past that I'm going to devote some time to getting back into the world of Shenmue.

    Dell S2716DG, 27" 2560x1440 144hz 1ms "G-Sync Gen II", DP+HDMI

    Try the TFT Central settings (from the Calibration section) from their Dell S2716DG Review along with their ICC profile as a starting point. I just kept it the way they set it up and personally I find the image to be great for everything that I do.

    Gaming Monitor 144hz or more - Don't know where to start.

    You are going to have to make that call for yourself. TN will not have the same viewing angles without color shifting etc that IPS will. TN will have less input lag if that matters to you. I personally sit in front of my monitor and have it on an arm so it is always oriented right in front of...

    Gaming Monitor 144hz or more - Don't know where to start.

    Yes, out of the two technologies you want Gsync if you are going with Nvidia based cards. I have the Dell S2716DG and it's great. I calibrated it per TFT Central settings and I really like the way it looks. I had the Rog Swift before and the panel crapped out on me. I like the Dell better honestly.

    Dell S2716DG, 27" 2560x1440 144hz 1ms "G-Sync Gen II", DP+HDMI

    Love this monitor so far. I prefer the (calibrated) image to the Asus ROG Swift.

    Dell S2716DG, 27" 2560x1440 144hz 1ms "G-Sync Gen II", DP+HDMI

    I posted this in another thread, but this should be in the official thread. I just got mine today to replace my Asus ROG Swift that had the panel go bad after 3 months of ownership. Same report to give as Raendor. No noticable blb, could not find any dead pixels. I calibrated per the TFT...

    Monitor: Dell S2716DG 27

    I just got mine today. Same report to give as Raendor. No noticable blb, could not find any dead pixels. I calibrated per the TFT Central settings and it looks great. Very sharp. Compared to my ROG Swift (which was also calibrated per TFT Central settings) that is getting RMA'd the gamma is...

    Monitor: Dell S2716DG 27

    For what it's worth...the 10ft Cable Matters DP cable I bought would not pass 1440p 144Hz....but an Accell 10' DP cable would. It seems there might be a bit of "cable lottery" when you get to the 3m length and past.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I'm pretty bummed. From what I've been reading this is not an uncommon problem. It also sounds like the RMA process is...not great. I'm looking to buy another 1440p 144Hz Gsync monitor because if I get through the RMA process I think I'm just going to sell the repaired panel. The other annoying...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Well, my monitor all of a sudden just developed the blurry, washed out text, some flickering of certain horizontal lines and tinting on white icons. Already tried to reset the monitor, reinstall drivers (yes, using DDU), new displayport cable, deactivating Gsysnc, SLI. Tried using ULMB too...

    [H] Poll: Which HMD did you order?

    I got a new S7 and Gear VR for now. I needed a new phone anyway so it was a no brainer to pick up the Gear VR. The resolution is noticeably low, but for 100 bucks it's not an issue for something to play around with. My system is ready for any of the big vr equipment but I'll wait to see how...
