    Philips Fidelio X2 $198.90 after $50 Instant Coupon on Amazon

    I have the X1's... they are amazing. Get these while you can. In games its like you can see where people are coming from with your ears. Scary good.

    Unreal Engine 4.11 Gets NVIDIA’s VRWorks Multi-Res Shading

    For those of you who dont know how VR works this is amazing! Large portions of the rendered image end up around the very edge of your field of view. They render the image near the center at native res where its most needed. Its an option. Not required.

    Interesting new panels coming this year (Tftcentral news)

    It has an algorithm its using to do pixel shifting for panel health. My guess is its 60hz input but the panel itself is refreshing at 120 to allow the algorithm to room to work.

    Half-Life 2: Episode Four

    The game would never live up to everyones nostalgia. Would be a PR nightmare that could only hurt them. Your never going to see HL3. If it does happen it wont be anytime soon.

    ASUS PG279Q 144hz 1440P IPS G-Sync

    All of the panels in these 1440p 144hz displays have been produced by the same manufacturer. If Samsung decides to make a similar panel we could get it in semi gloss or if we wish hard enough full gloss :P Coating is put on during panel fab before asus, acer, or benq even get ahold of it.

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    Very happy to see its 100hz now but the logo on the front is too "gamer" for me. Companies need to stop assuming gamers like 14 kid style agressive branding.

    New G Sync monitors incoming

    They are making the exact same monitor for freesync first for 600$. Gsync doesnt cost that much more to introduce. Im thinking 800$ total.

    Feds to Cable Industry: Embrace Broadband Competition or Else

    As long as politicians have power to sell someone will be there to buy it. The only way to remove money from politics will be to remove the incentive. Government has too much power. Some government is essential but what we have today is over reaching. When you hear wealth redistribution you...

    Feds to Cable Industry: Embrace Broadband Competition or Else

    If a company doesnt have to care about what its customers think then its not a free market. Customers will go elsewhere. In my area and many others comcast has deals with local governments so only they can drop lines to provide service. There is no other option. Comcast has used government...

    Feds to Cable Industry: Embrace Broadband Competition or Else

    I dont think anyone here is saying get rid of government completely. We just want to see a dramatic scale back from what we have today... which is government that has grown too big and influenced too heavily by corporatisms. Entery into mature markets is easy. Take uber for example. It was...

    Feds to Cable Industry: Embrace Broadband Competition or Else

    Local government are the ones that limit who can install lines for service. Government... Not buisnesses. Limiting who can deliver service is what is killing competition and without competition isp's keep their 97% profit margins. Government is the problem here. Big ISP's are just taking...

    No, they are most likely from projects that weren't making any money. Perhaps theyre trying to slim down and streamline their focus to a few good products.

    Lack of glossy gsync and other gaming monitors

    Well im excited to give acer a try if they produce a monitor thats 21:9 1440 gsync glossy which if rumors are true is very possible. Never been interested in their products before but they seem to really be on fire this year.

    I keep trying to logon to the acer forums to give feedback in that forum you linked to. (Awesome that they are actually talking with customers) The login seems to be having issues :( Maybe you can direct them to view this page. Not that we should have to but I would totally pay 200$ extra...

    Still using a 950d from samsung @ 120hz but TN and 1080p is starting to show its age... This thread isn't going to be seen by anyone but us. Monitor companies are going to continue ruining what would be amazing displays with aggressive AG coatings. I post on their facebook pages complaining...

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    If its glossy they can make the price ridiculous and I'll still buy it. The matte rog swift checked all the right boxes except one... Are Acer gaming monitors typically matte or glossy?

    [Freesync] Benq XL2730Z -- 144 Hz, 1440p, 27 inches.

    They have to be paying more for these extended warranties. It's included by law so your essentially forced to buy an extended warranty if you want the product. That or margins on these products aren't as high in these in the EU.

    If The Internet Becomes A Public Utility, You’ll Pay More Taxes

    Corporations have to compete with each other for your dollar in a free market. They are accountable to their customers. Government has no competition and thus has no accountability.

    Hate your matte film?

    I was 100% set to buy the swift. The matte coating on the display has stopped me from doing so. Waiting until a monitor with similar specs using a glossy display comes out to upgrade. For 800$ no one should have to compromise. Also waiting to buy some Asus 980's but wont until I have a proper...
