    Dell S2740L sucks more than anything that has ever sucked.

    I bought 3 and have never used anything worse in this price range. Yellow tinted bottom half of screen? Absolutely! Worst ghosting seen since the dawn of flat panel LCDs? You better believe it! So much bleeding I thought windows explorer was running 16xAA and stuck constantly on a black loading...

    Mars: War Logs $10 on Steam (Witcher-style RPG) I only caught onto this one today. Similar to Mass Effect, Witcher, Dragon Age Origins, KOTOR. Super low critic metacritic is wrong. Read the user reviews and you'll see this one is destined to be a cult classic just like The Witcher. I bought 3...

    Finally bought a new Playbook, but I think it might be defective.

    Ok, charging issues seem common for the Playbook but I've pretty much exhausted what I can go with Google. The Playbook will turn on and go to the "Update" screen but it always shows 0% battery and will never charge. I'm using the official Blackberry charger, also tried via USB into powered hub...

    Need tablet recommendation from tablet experts

    I want a tablet for carrying ebooks/recipes/etc around, listening to radio/TV in the shower, watching TV while while cooking, and browsing the web/Youtube. Has to have Wifi obviously, and needs to have as much processing power as possible because some of my TV is HD/high bitrate. I'm not into...

    Remember Lunar Lander? Lunar Flight 2.50 STEAM daily deal

    Daily deal. Indie. Has a great metacritic. I bought it because I loved Lunar Lander. edit: And the game is genuinely awesome. Good physics, addictive, great sounds and ambience, I love it. A steal for this price. Buy it.

    Who else is loving MSAA + FXAA + SGSSAA?

    For me, last 3 weeks have been KOTOR, THPS3/4, rFactor, Vampire Bloodlines, Anno 2070/1404. All have been given amazingly kickass facelifts from this combination, especially when you throw in a custom ENB profile into the mix. :eek: Who else is loving being a gamer right now? :D

    Orcs Must Die Tower Defense Steam Daily Deal with DLC 4.99

    edit: Should be Midweek Madness not daily deal, which is Burnout Paradise, also a great game and a steal at that price. 3.74 alone with no DLC. I've played little else "casual" for weeks. Put about 25 hours in so far. Killer tower defense. Much better than Dungeon Defenders to me, but no "loot"...

    blank/black screen in a huge number of games.

    edit note: disregard overclock in sig, it's not actual overclock, it is merely what the card is capable of as verified when first purchased around a year ago. Since that time it has been run @ stock since I've not needed the extra power. Seriously, what the hell. All my games have been working...

    Weird set of problems with Philips HDTV

    First off it's a Philips 52PFL7403D/27 (as in sig). Frequently, but not always, I get this weird pink pixel tint thing going on, pretty obvious but it's weird, almost like the tv is missing a color and applying pink in its place (it looks almost like pink shadowing, appearing most frequently...

    Best method to capture PS2/xbox360 video in 1080p?

    Basic question for those that already know about this stuff. I want to capture gameplay from my 360 and PS2 for Youtube and such and I want to capture in 480p, 720p, and 1080p, ideally uncompressed frames or something similar to how FRAPS does it. Cost is no object, but of course I'd prefer...

    I own all 5 of the games in this strategy bundle already, having purchased them separately in the past 2 years, and each one of them is worth 5 bucks easily, a couple are worth 10 bucks.

    Very odd problem with 480 losing signal but regaining it.

    This happens maybe twice a day. I used to crash with driver 280 (usually a desktop crash, driver recovered but error msg and kicked out of game, but sometimes BSOD) so I moved back to driver 270 and the hard crashes stopped. I still get this really odd thing happening now and again though...

    RIP Monsoon Planar Media 9 -- need recommendations

    I can't believe I've had these things since 2001 (before 9/11 even!) It seems like a lifetime ago. I've used them literally every day of my life for almost exactly 10 years and they've somehow survived all manner of madness, at least 10 moves, been dropped a couple times, had their stands broken...
