    Agreed. Lets just move forward and enjoy the D3 experience whether you paid $60, $50 or whatever.

    Warm? Diablo 3 55.99

    Looks like you can only pre-download from Blizzard if you actually brought the key via battlenet. Since we did not, there does not seem to be any way (via Blizzard) to download the game pre-release. If this is not true, can someone point me in the right direction? Would like to download it...

    Warm? Diablo 3 55.99

    Can i ask where you downloaded it? I have seen a couple of options, but i want to avoid a 7+ GB download unless i know what i am getting. Only way to be sure i guess is via blizzard

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III $29.99 http://www.developoxstore.com/

    Typically, I have no issue buying from these sites. Obviously the developers have issue with this as they want to maximize their returns by getting the most money out of each person buying their product. Given the differing markets across regions, if certain regions attempted to sell MW3 for...

    Warm? Razer Blackwidow Mechanical Keyboard for $55.99

    Don't forget tax (if applicable). Just ordered the ultimate for about $104 ($120 - 20% + about 8.50 tax with free shipping).

    Amazon deal of the day: CoD black ops $40 on all platforms (pc/ps3/360)

    Ummm. Black Ops is # 3 and # 8 for multi player and single player respectively. Only CS is above it. Not sure what you are talking about as there are plenty of ppl playing it. Oh, and based upon your comments, it is clear that you don't actually own Black Ops. Save us your rant. If you...

    Owners of MS X8 mouse, some questions pls

    I had one, but sold it as i could not get used to the shape. There was a bump where the ring finger on your right hand is (i.e. the finger beside your pinky) that I just could not get used to. From memory, the battery was decent and I got around the 20 hour mark I think. The charging...

    Whats better for Gaming ?

    Nowdays, it really makes no difference if you are willing to spend a little $. Crappy wireless mice still lag a little and are not as precise as their wired cousins. But wireless mice like the Microsoft x8 perform identically to high end wired gaming mice. Downside is that you need to charge...

    XHD3000 dropping like flies, need new recommendation

    I also have the 3008WFP. Got it through a refurb seller on ebay. Note: There are a few threads about this guy in this forum. He was selling for around $850 with a 2 year warranty. I really like mine. Also had a 3007WFP-HC for a little while and am please with my choice to stick with the 3008WFP...

    New MW2 Map pack..

    The shear number of cheaters (e.g. aimbots, wallhacks etc) gets quite ridiculous at times (on many occasions I have been in games with 3+ cheaters, at this point you just have to turn it off and go to bed). Love the game, despise the cheaters and am just not willing to pay $30 for some maps...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Not sure how accurate the "time" counter is in the service menu of the 3008WFP. Mine was sitting at around 500 hours after a few months used. Checked it today and it was reset to 0 hours (no idea how). After about an hour I turned my PC off. Turned the PC on again after about 8 hours and checked...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Has anyone actually got ebay feedback from this guy? He is very keen for us to give him feedback, but I got two monitors and zero feedback from him so far. Seems a little weird as it has been a couple of months now.

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    I googled the crap out of the process to find total used time, but found nothing. I wonder if it counts time when your PC is on and the monitor is in standyby or just time when the monitor is actually on. Mine has a good 500 hours on it. Have had it for a couple of months though so not all of...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Message the seller back and he will typically arrange for a replacement to be sent directly to you. Put the defective monitor back into the same box it arrived in, remove all shipping labels, barcodes etc stuck to the box, paste the return shipping label on (red label) and arrange for Fedex to...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Not really. That was my biggest concern and why I brought one of each to compare. I am no expert on input lag, but although differences did exist, they were not signficant and were definately not deal breakers for me. The main reasons I kept the 3008WFP were the input options and the picture...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Unfortunately not. I purchased both a 3007WFP-HC and a 3008WFP for comparative purposes (i.e. to determine which one would suit me the best). There were a few comparisons out there, but most were done by people who had never owned both monitors, so were biased at best. I then returned the...

    Sapphire 5870 @ newegg $389.99 shipped

    Your graph is 5 years out of date (i.e. several of the countries listed have had tax overhauls recently), incomplete (i.e. it excludes a significant portion of the world) and does not appear to account accurately for progressive tax systems (i.e. it seems to take the top tax bracket). It clearly...

    Sapphire 5870 @ newegg $389.99 shipped

    You kidding? US taxes the crap out of its citizens (both at home and abroad). US income taxes are certainly no lower than most other nations, however, the kicker (which you hit on) is that you get next to nothing for your $$ here in the US. Other nations with lower income tax rates provide...

    Looks like cash back is not active at ebay at the moment. In the end, i received 3 3008WFP monitors from this guy (I returned 2 due to stuck pixel issues), 2 came in full retail packaging, sealed up with protective plastic strips over all plastic surfaces, all cables etc, the other came in a...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    Every now and then this seller runs auctions with cheaper prices. For example, the 3008WFP is typically USD$878 (before cashback), however, they are sometimes listed around the $800 mark (before cashback). Not sure why or when he does this, but it periodically comes up. In addition, I think that...

    Dell 3008WFP $860 Refurb, 2 Yr Dell Warranty

    The warranty process works well. If you search for the monitor service tag on the Dell warranty web-site and don't get a valid entry, contact the seller directly and he gets it sorted (could take a few days). Once it is set-up, you simply use your personal contact details (i.e. those listed on...

    Thinking about 2x30's or 3 24's

    You might want to check out this thread. They are via ebay and classified as refurb, but a) I have received a couple of new monitors rather than refurbs, and b) they come with warranties (lengths vary).

    Thinking about 2x30's or 3 24's

    Given that he seems more interested in desktop space (i.e. general use, occasional programming, etc etc), I don't think eyefinity is your best option. I was using 2 x 3008WFPs for a while and they are excellent. I decided not to go 3 x 24" primarily due to the limited height and excessive width...

    30" + 2x24"

    I have a 30" with 1 x 24" in portrait beside it. Works well. As previous posters have said, the pixels don't map up, but that doesn't really matter much if you are using the monitors independently. Go for it if you have both the $$ and the space. You will need quite a large desk to fit it all in...

    Dell 2711 vs 3007 vs 3008 for gaming?

    You could use HDMI/HDMI, HDMI/DVI, DVI/HDMI. I tend to stay away from VGA etc. The easiest is probably just HDMI/HDMI. Assuming you are not using your monitor for sound (i.e. optional attached speaker unit), I think any of the above combination's would work fine. Probably depends more on what...
