  1. Put both in Wifi only mode and run Wireshark to see if one S9 is more talkative than the other. I bet if you turn Wifi and mobile data off the battery life is going to be the same on both phones.
  2. Pre-amp with optical in and able to drive my 250 Ohm beyerdynamics for cheap?
  3. Katana = 175 euros JBL = 122 euros x2 = 244 For desktop PC, gaming and music No amps, dacs, motherboard audio only
  4. Does anyone have any experience with these monitors? They look pretty much the same to me. I want to buy one of these and would really like to hear some opinions on their quality.
  5. I am not acting like a frustrated kid, I am acting like a logical kid. There is really no excuse in buying an UltraWide. Buy a 43 inch instead. Gaming: Want a larger FOV? Change the FOV settings. Want higher framerates? Reduce resolution, detail or buy another GPU from the money you save. Or don't buy a GPU and buy a very high refresh rate 1080p monitor just for games that need it. You will end up paying the same. Productivity: I want to fucking laugh my ass off. There is no argument for the UltraWides here. Movies: Is the only reason to buy a 21:9. If you are insane and can't live with 2 fairly black bars on top and bottom of a breathtakingly huge awesome display at a distance of half to one meter in front of you.
  6. What kind of GPU did you have previously? Could your older GPUs run games at 60 fps or higher? Mine sure as hell never could. I have never gamed at over 60 fps, even when I bought a brand spanking new AMD 7950. Who has the hardware to run games at more than 60 fps and why should they?? Most of these people are guys who can spend 700$ on a GPU every year. The rest 90% of the people can't even afford a 1440p UW and try to buy a 1080p one, just because it happens to be the current hype. Get your sht together and stop trying to defend companies that want to sell an overstretched-what-would-be-27 inches at 16:9 1440p monitor for more than a 43, let me say that again, 43 INCH FUCKING 4K MONITOR.
  7. Or C) you are on the hype train and feel like this: UltraWides are useless and people on this forum and beyond should know..
  8. Buy a Philips BDM4350UC and a second GPU then. There is no argument that can support the UltraWides's price over a large 16:9 panel.
  9. Lower resolution, detail or just play at 45 fps and turn on VSync. Is 45 fps bad for any game other than fps??
  10. So buy a big ass 4K monitor. You can afford a 34UC99 but not a Dell P4317Q with a better GPU??
  11. 27" @ 4K? Your eyes are going to bleed, either because of the extremely small icons, or because of the horrendous Windows scaling (I bet you use Windows)
  12. I can't fathom out why people are still buying UltraWide monitors. Why don't they get themselves a 43 inch FLAT 4K panel instead of having to deal with curve-induced distortion and websites that don't come close to using the horizontal real estate? Do they just game all day? Do they not have anything more important to do with their computers? Also the myth that UltraWides are better for productivity drives me insane. How could 34 or 38 inches of a "spaghetti" monitor possibly be better for productivity than a huge 43 inch 16:9?? (or even 55 inch, but that is pushing the ppi). For the price of a 1440p ultrawide you could have both a 4K IPS 43 inch AND a 1080p 144 TN. And don't tell me you need higher than 1080p or better than TN to play games that require high framerates. No one can convince me that fps titles benefit from high resolutions. Also, if you are spending $1000+ on a high res UltraWide (1080p UWs suck even worse), you can probably afford a 1080/1080ti or Vega 64 to play at 4K, or at least know how to reduce the resolution and detail in game.. What is YOUR excuse?
