    Dell 43 Ultra HD 4K Multi Client Monitor – P4317Q

    What are the best 40" IPS alternatives to this monitor? I tried a 4K Samsung tv as a monitor and liked the size and resolution but the glossy screen and VA panel didn't work for me. I'm in the market for a large 4K monitor but will only do an IPS display. This looked tempting but I'd be...

    Dell 43 Ultra HD 4K Multi Client Monitor – P4317Q

    i'm really interested in this as well. i tried a samsung 40'' 4k tv not too long ago. it was cool, but the VA panel just wasn't doing it for me. this seems far more intriguing because of the IPS display. the only major downside I see is no HDMI 2.0

    GTX 1080, Simultaneous Multi-Projection and multi monitor gaming

    as far as i'm aware, all multi monitor gaming has required 3 of the same monitors. I have a dell 30'' monitor with 2 dell 20'' monitors in a portrait-landscape-portrait setup. i've always wanted to be able to play on the main 30'' and have the 2 dells on the side act as additional monitors for...

    If I put any video fullscreen, whether it is a video on my PC or a youtube video, my screen shuts off after about a minute. i'm running 3 screens off my Titan X. i have power options set to never turn off my screens so I don't know why it only happens when a video is playing fullscreen. any...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    does anyone have issues with the partner start? it seems like the majority of the time I can't spawn on my partner, so I sit around waiting for it to light up so i can spawn on him, but most of the time he ends up dying and i've waited 10 seconds instead of just spawning back in and keeping the...

    Samsung 950 PRO [Official Thread]

    i hooked up this drive onto a asus z170 deluxe. for some reason though, in the bios, i can't set it to m.2. On the asus board, m.2 and sata express are shared, so it is one or the other. when i set it to m.2, the setting doesn't stick. i did install windows 10 though and things seem fine so...

    Corsair 750d front air intake durability

    I'm about to do a new build and I got a corasir 750d airflow edition today. I removed the front air filter to swap out the stock fans with noctua fans and when I went to put the filter back on the left side latch mechanism wouldn't click in. I maybe removed it and clicked it back in 4 or 5 times...

    Samsung 950PRO, when?

    it isn't just the raw file, it is also has to do with the way adobe lightroom works with the catalog file. having raw images and the catalog stored on a fast drive speed things up considerably in lightroom i also do a lot with 3d graphics content creation where scene files are loading in large...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    i ran a quick test last night and swapped back to my dell 30'' to see how it felt after using the 40'' 7500 for a week. i may just return the 40'' as much as i like the larger size and real estate, the VA panel is kind of bugging me with viewing angle. i don't notice it during gaming...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    any thoughts on viewing angles? i'm coming from a 30'' dell monitor that is a semi gloss IPS display. I'm having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the viewing angles. slight shifts in my head create shifts in contrast on the display. anyone else notice this on the 7500? and a question. i have...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    I got the 40'' and I'm very happy, pixel density feels right. I haven't used a 48'' but I would think that even though it is 4k, the pixel density might be lacking slightly. that is a personal preference of mine though. it may be fine for you

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    has anyone compared the ju7500 to the ju6700? i just got the ju7500 but am not sure if I'm liking the glossy screen. it's not bad in the evening with a bias light behind the monitor, but during the day when my room is a bit brighter, the glossy screen has some issues. i think the ju6700 has a...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    i grabbed the 40'' JU7500 and got it all hooked up. I needed the high speed HDMI cable, capable of 18gbps to get everything working properly. i'm coming from a 30" Dell 3007WFP. i put the samsung in game mode and don't really notice a huge difference in input lag, it could be more to do with...

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    this has probably been discussed, but the thread is massive!!! i have a 30'' dell, the 3007wfp-hc. it has been great for the 7 or 8 years I've owned it. I game a lot, mostly battlefield and COD. i also do a lot with 3d graphics i'd certainly love to have a 4k screen but am wondering about...

    No Campaign Mode In PS3 And Xbox 360 Versions Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops III

    I don't think that is the case. From a tech standpoint the new hardware can deal with higher poly counts, better texture resolution,more complex effects and particle systems and larger and more complex levels. There really isn't a way to port all of that to old gen hardware properly...

    i want to like killzone, but it just isn't doing it for me. part of the issue is that the field of view is far too narrow for my liking and it gives a weird claustrophobic sensation. i end up sprinting a lot because it widens the field of view enough that it isn't uncomfortable to look at...

    Battlefield 4 **Official Discussion Thread**

    i noticed this a lot too. i was playing domination earlier on operation locker and my team got pushed into one corner of the map and we couldn't get out. spawn, die, spawn, die. getting steamrolled is no fun, but some of the spawn points just make it even worse.
