I never got that far. Removing the casing was just too difficult. I don't see how it's possible when it won't budge even with all my strength pulling it and hurting my hands yet the screen will crack if you so much as breathe on it heavily.
Phillips BDM3270 easily:
+5 year warranty
+best 1440p VA monitor reviewed on Tomshardware
+no weird Samsung vertical pixel spacing causing blurry text
+avoid possibly terrible Samsung warranty support according to some
I've narrowed the choices down to either the BenQ PD3200U, Samsung LU32H850UMUXEN or LG 32UD99.
The LG isn't available yet but the only technical review is promising albeit slightly higher lag than the BenQ which is the best according to NCX.
The Samsung is a VA but has quantum dots and is a...
Finally tried removing the Benq bl3201pt bezel following this guide using plastic pry tools.
Spent an hour carefully prying and not getting anywhere and causing mintor damage before reading this thread.
I used as little force as possible struggling to get one edge to come off and then it...
But it's not. Just under 20% absolute and under 10% IPC over IvyBridge is rubbish. It hits 76C at stock under water so you need to add $50 for delidding and there's no guarantee it'll go beyond 4.5Ghz stock without being AVX unstable failing Prime95 and IBT.
Waiting for 6-core CoffeeLake or...
Yes. Going from a 3570K @ 4Ghz to a 7770K @ 4.4Ghz has yielded barely 20% according to IBT from 110glfops to 133gflops which is exactly as I calculated (3% Haswell IPC, 3% Skylake IPC, +0.5Ghz clockspeed).
CoffeeLake being released so soon threatens making the 7700K obsolete more than Ryzen...
Given the numerous reports of problems turning off the annoying pulsing LED lighting and poor reputation of the Corsair Link Software which may be needed to be actively running to control the LED's, I'd avoid Vengeance LED.
Newton R3 800W
It failed after a year sadly.
The black stealth cables were very good quality. Much better than the stiff braided cables in the current EVGA P2.
A waterproof PSU would get my attention. Maybe work on that? Otherwise I don't see how you can compete with Seasonic & SuperFlower.
I'd estimate "the glitch" to be closer to once per half-hour than 1-3 times a day. The touch sensitive buttons randomly going on & off is far more annoying. Light from the screen itself is activating them.
Plasma is far from obsolete given OLED's uncertain future with only one Dell vapourware monitor in existence.
Plasma is an on/off display with practically perfect response and uniformity. LCD's are backlit displays with grey-blacks. VA's are nothing special. They simply "crush" the darker tones...
CRT is obsolete for good reason. They emit x-rays and flicker. Eyestrain is inevitable. You'd have to be crazy to risk eye damage and migraines when plasma and OLED are available if you must have perfect blacks.
The Dell U3014 is vastly superior to most LCD's too. It has a 3.2ms gaming mode...
I don't know. My Corsair K7LUX RGB Red works fine, has no flicker and the software just takes some used to getting set up. YMMY is always applicable.
Buy what you like, because it's you doing the liking. Not anyone else.
Maybe Corsair upgraded the controller in the Lux series. The flicker is...
CRT's were terrible for eyestrain.
OLED > Plasma > LCD > CRT
LCD's have gone backwards since 2011. Features that improve image quality such as glossy, polarisers, GBr-LED backlighting have quietly disappeared.
Now we have ultra-widescreen and curvature as the main selling features at a premium...
It's obviously not the screen if it works on the PC.
It's got to be the GPU's on the devices that are unable to support HDMI 1.4 properly. I'd never get a Mac as they're crap style-over-substance anyway.
Hard drive development has become glacial since the Hitachi 4Tb came out years ago.
They used to double in size every year.
SSD's are already at 2Tb and mechanicals are still stuck at 6Tb.
When SSD's were 128Gb, mechanicals were already 3Tb.
LCD sucks in general:
-washed out colours due to no glossy coatings anymore
-bad blacklevels, uniformity, bleed
-IPS glow instead of polarisers to eliminate it.
-cheap LED strips instead of full array backlighting
-dead pixels, trapped dust, trapped insects, "bruise" blemishes and gridline...
It is unclear whether glossy screens have a clear film layer instead of the AG film in which case removing the AG film would make the surface very vulnerable to damage.
He must have damaged the polariser layer else there'd be photos by now. :(
Is there a red tint on yours?
The one here has far too much red. It looks washed out compared to my glossy.
I tried tweaking it to get the colours more accurate:
Red - 95
Contrast - 50
Brightness - 30
Hue - 48
Saturation - 50
Gamma - 3
Sharpness - 5
