  1. Dell S2419HGF, deal goes live 9AM EST tomorrow. Lowest I've ever seen a g-sync monitor retail (doesn't matter now that NVidia cards do freesync but still). Downsides are 1080p and TN but that's perfectly serviceable for 99% of users. https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/38sw
  2. Everything from Minecraft to Jedi Fallen Order runs like SHIT on my Alienware 13R3 with unplayable stuttering. I can dial the settings far higher and get better framerates at the same resolutions (1080p, 1440p) on the gaming PC I built for my little sister FIVE YEARS AGO. To top it all off, the alienware has an NVMe SSD and the PC has a 7200RPM HDD. Did a clean install of Windows, drivers are up to date, I even went into the BIOS and turned on CPU and fan performance modes, and dealt with the UNBREARABLE fan noise. To top it all off, my 3Dmark Firestrike scores are fine, in the 9000s like most people with this laptop. What the hell is happening?
  3. I'm using my Alienware 13R3 with a 13" 1440p OLED display and a GTX 1060 6GB. I've been thinking - since I don't have the money or the space to upgrade my GPU (requires alienware graphics amplifier), should I get a monitor downgrade? I was debating getting a 1080p or even a 900p IPS monitor, 19-20", so I could run my games at max settings and a locked 60fps. I can think of plenty of pros, but are there any cons?
  4. Hey all, wanted to ask if anyone knew about an app that let me make notes on an audio recording. I'm a musician and I'm currently at school for music. I record about 7 hours of audio from my classes every week and wanted to know if there were any apps for making notes on an audio recording. I've been using Vegas projects so far but it's been super tedious. Thanks, Aereldor.
  5. I don't use the camera that much, I just need something reliable since I use it to record performances and lessons (I'm a musician and music student). I'd definitely appreciate a wideangle lens to make things easier in crowded venues, but a clip-on would probably achieve the same result. I don't care about the CPU, GPU, Display- none of that. I care about battery life, durability, and a decent enough camera. I understand guaranteed water-resistance is tricky with manufacturers, but I'd prefer water damage to be covered by the warranty since every bricked phone I've seen was from water damage. And perhaps most importantly, I care about quality control. I've had too much shit fail on me and I don't want to worry about repairs and replacements.
  6. Looks good, I'm just a little iffy with Xiaomi stuff. Do you reckon the A50 is a suitable comparison to the S7? It will cost me $50 more but I'll get it brand new. Yeah, and I already liked the 2-3 day battery on the Moto G7 Power, it just has too many defects and doesn't run apple music properly, which is a big deal for me (professional musician, library of 11,000 songs, most of which I like to keep offline) That's a relief to hear, but it seems to vary from model to model. I don't plan on dropping the phone into any swimming pools, I just don't want an accidental drop into a sink or splatter from rain/spills to cause any damage.
  7. Sounds alright, what are the improvements? I don't care about how fast the phone is, just primarily that it's durable
  8. Advertised water resistance? Last I checked I didn't see any. Also bad camera
  9. It is the screen, unfortunately.
  10. After 2 years of use, my S7 edge kicked the bucket and it'll cost too much to fix. I replaced it with a Moto G7 power but I'm returning that since it has a bunch of manufacturer defects. I really don't want to spend more than $200 Essential features Good battery life Some degree of water resistance Good durability, even though I'm going to put it in an otterbox A good camera I'm currently considering a manufacturer refurbished Galaxy S7. It's $200 and comes with a 1 year warranty.
  11. Oh yeah played most of them, they're awesome. I wonder how the completely remade Lego Star Wars saga will turn out.
  12. Just fixed my laptop and I'm looking to find some new games to play. My Steam is Aereldor so you can see what I already have if you want Current favourite games- Xenoblade Chronicles The Witcher 3 Star Wars KOTOR Breath of the Wild/Twilight Princess Rocket League Blades of the Shogun Skyrim (modded to death) Battlefront 2 (2005) Considering Assassin's Creed Odyssey because I can get it for $20, but hesitant because Ubisoft. Also considering Okami because it looks amazing. Slight bias towards graphically intensive games since the last game I played was KOTOR.
