    Corsair HS1A headset poor cable quality!

    My HS1A started having sound issues in one of the ears, like a part of the sound being muted, and apparently this is an issue with all of them as I've seen threads on the Corsair support forums with the same thing. So I did what you did and bought a DT 990 Pro to go with a Soundblaster...

    Best headset?

    I have the beyerdynamics DT 990s and they are awesome, best headphones I have ever had and they work great with CMSS 3D. The sound quality is better than my old Corsair HS1's by a good margin and it still has the excellent sound stage with cleaner bass. Very good positional audio. Will not...

    Samsung S27A850D - my impressions

    I think it depends on the person. I have the aforementioned Dell and the AG was quite jarring at first on white backgrounds but my eyes have gotten use to it. I still see the fuzz but it isn't as bad as when I first got the monitor.

    Dell U2412M

    It really depends on what you are coming from. I came from a glossy Samsung TN panel and while the colors don't pop as much, it is much more accurate. The blacks were better on the Samsung but I can distinguish colors alot better now on the Dell. I have yet to notice any ghosting during my...

    Dell U2412M

    I just got mine. Coming from a glossy Samsung TN I do notice the AG on anything white. Colors are fine but anything stark white you can easily tell. Whether this bothers me on the same level as reflections or more I do not know yet. Going from 22 inches to 24 inches, 1680x1050 to 1920x1200...

    Dell U2412M

    IPS Panel aside, 10e has actually done testing on it and is saying it compares favorably to one of the best IPS monitors out there, the NEC 2490WUXi2, which retails for a heck of a lot more and does not have an "e-ips" panel. Like NCX, I wish this thing had a glossy version as I just love...

    Dell U2412M

    10e was talking about the BenQ PVA screen he sold to his friend. The info is looking good, keep the impressions coming! I'll wait on the Samsung 24 inch PLS to come out to compare but it looks like this might be my next monitor until the OLED monitors come out.

    ASUS ML239H IPS Panel LED BackLight

    They need to stop with that red line but it is less obnoxious. Should be a winner right with the ASUS 24-inch version having a less harsh AG coating compared to its competitors?

    Doublesight DS-245V 24" 1920x1200 IPS

    No, I think your initial impressions and the hideous logo was enough for me. I'll try my hand at more known quantities with professional reviews. Hopeful for Samsung's 24-inch PLS but that thing won't be coming out anytime soon. I wonder if I should just wait it out until we get affordable...

    Best Gaming Headset Suggestions (Must Include Mic)

    I would. Haven't had any issues with sound other then an early problem with the Sound Manager program which kept on closing/not opening on me. For some reason it doesn't do that anymore haha. Also, Witcher 2 is not playing nicely with it. Can't hear any sound with that game. Works on...

    Doublesight DS-245V 24" 1920x1200 IPS

    Best Gaming Headset Suggestions (Must Include Mic)

    I have the Corsair HS1As and they are great for gaming, ok for music. The Dolby Surround Sound feature is awesome. Mic is apparently on the quiet side according to friends/reviews.

    Is new Samsung LN32D550 good as PC Monitor?

    Yea, that LG has terrible black levels but everything else is good, which makes me :(. Please PLEASE let the Samsung PLS monitors be good.

    32" - 37" TV(monitor) Recommendation

    I have that tv. As long as you get the IPS panel, you will be fine. For a tv, it works good as a monitor, just beware the blacks are absolutely dreadful but the colors are really good and input lag is minimal. The tv does have panel lottery though.

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    Disappointing indeed but interesting how LG marketing fibbed on the specs. Their 22-23 inch IPS monitors have IPS all over the box and even in the name of the monitor. The gaming aspect must be coming from its "thru-mode".

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    Now we await official word from LG on why Amazon and Newegg are advertising IPS with a TN panel. Still, even with the bad news, its good to have some clarity, just sorry for gman and others buying it on the basis it would be IPS.

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    Indeed. Now the real question is if we have panel lottery going on and some of them will be IPS. Otherwise, all that advertising blurb from Newegg and Amazon will need to be changed haha. Still, if you like it gman, keep it!

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    We will just have to wait for TFT Central, Prad.de, or some site as competent to make a judge on it. I'll check my local Fry's tomorrow if it has the LG 2770V-BF but I doubt my noobish eyes will do anything for you all. If anything, at the very least, I can check for the vertical viewing angles.

    That is what I am possibly thinking with the the whole "TBD" panel thing.

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    At the very least they, along with other Hard forumites, are checking in with LG to make sure, once and for all, what exactly the panel type is.

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    Isn't both monitors LED though? And if the monitor is a TN monitor, why is the ISO response rated at 14ms? Shouldn't it be faster? Is this some type of new, upgraded TN panel or is it a lower end IPS panel? Or something newer altogether? The lack of IPS branding on the box and in documents is...

    Still having doubts about what screen to buy

    Aggressive Anti-Glare coating. It is what is used on the monitor's screen so that it minimizes any glare coming from light sources. What I mean by aggressive is that LG usually employs strong AG coating that can make a screen appear muddy with a "sparkle" effect. It would make things like text...

    Still having doubts about what screen to buy

    As long as you are fine with LG's traditionally aggresive AG coating on their monitors, then yes. I have a LG tv, the LD450, and I haven't been bothered by the coating if it has as much as their monitors. I need to go to Fry's and take a look at them up close. As people have said, all the...

    LG E2770V - 27 inch with IPS-panel ?

    The only issue could be LG's traditional use of aggressive coating on their panels. That might be a downer for some who are sensitive to that. Otherwise, I am really interested in this and the PLS 24 inch monitor from Samsung.

    NEW MONITORS 2011

    They will be using RTC so hopefully that helps. I am encouraged by the 24 inch model. Hopefully PLS turns out to be a winner.

    "New"-IPS overrated?

    My only issue with the Asus is that awful red line they put into it. Hopefully when Samsung PLS monitors are out for review, I can find a nice 24 inch option but I'm not holding out hope that option will release any time soon. While I would love an SA850 if it had low ghosting and medium...

    Samsung New 120Hz 3D Models S23A750, S27A750, S23A950 and S27A950

    I actually don't have a problem with the resolution. I have an issue, however, with a 27inch TN monitor. When my Samsung 22inch TN already has terrible vertical viewing angles, I can only imagine what the extra real estate will make it become. I just wish it was feasible to use Samsung's...

    24 in version of 2209 wa ?

    Yea, me too. I'm waiting for Hazro's new 24/27 as well to decide between that, the HP ZR24W, Samsung PLS, and the Doublesight DS-245V (Intrigued about it but I've seen no reviews).

    Samsung intros IPS competitor: PLS

    Sounds good. I'm interested in a 24 inch PLS variant myself as 27inch (And accompanying 2560x1440 res) is probably too rich for my blood.

    Hazro HZ30Wi, HZ27Wa & HZ27Wb

    Once it becomes available directly from Hazro like the 30 inch, we will be able to purchase it. I believe it is a 62 British pound sterling flat rate for shipping and whatever the cost for the monitor itself. What I'm hoping for is a 24 inch version of the HZ27WC with the glossy screen.

    ASUS ML239H IPS Panel LED BackLight

    Was looking at this. Would that mean the AG coating would be the same? I'm fine with that as long as the ASUS QC is better then Dell's.

    ASUS PA246Q: 24-inch, 1920x1200, IPS

    Thanks for your impressions shlemielo. I'm in the market for a new monitor so if this monitor doesn't have the QC issues the Dell ones do....I would be all over it.

    Hazro HZ30Wi, HZ27Wa & HZ27Wb

    Looks like Hazro has been swamped with custom orders so things are a bit slower per http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/news_archive/23.htm#hazro_27_updates. They did note that the Glossy 27inch will now be housed in plastic instead of aluminum but that the "wait will be worth it" once we see the...

    Hazro HZ30Wi, HZ27Wa & HZ27Wb

    Hey Hazro Rep, 1. Will the 24-inch IPS LED screen have full rotation/tilt controls? I was interested in the newly announced LG IPS LED screen but from what I gather, it will not have rotation. 2. Dunno if this is a no brainer but will it also have RTC like the 27 inch screen? 3. Any input...

    i7 2600k 4.8Ghz vs my old 1090t @ 4.0Ghz re: World of Warcraft.

    I was an early Phenom (Not even the II series) adopter and have been regretting it ever since. I am running 20-45 FPS in general gameplay with an AMD 6870 on mostly Good settings. The distance settings (draw,character,etc) really kill the processor. I haven't had an Intel system since the...

    Are you skipping 2500K/2600K?

    2500k for me from an AMD Phenom 9600. I've tried to stretch 2 years on this processor and it has been hard. Hoping the 2500k can last me 4 years as well with system upgrades in between.

    LG Display unveils 23-inch 240 Hz IPS panel

    How important do you think the 2600k's extra 2MB cache be over the 2500K?

    Haha, same here. I was thinking of springing on a U23H or ZR24, but decided to just wait it out until we get a new display tech (OLED....probably not) or IPS gets even better. That is, if my willpower can hold off my purchasing urges. I have an IPS tv and the colors it displays once calibrated...
