  1. It's sad when my only option for phone upgrades now is Samsung... No notch, and with headphone jack. Is that so hard?... Eagerly waiting for the S10 to be unveiled. If it has a notch or ditched the jack. Guess I'll be getting the S9.
  2. Ordered the U2518D, color looks good, input response of 5.18ms looks very promising. Size seems just right, I actually think 27 might be too big for me. Ordered from Spain so it's insufferably more expensive at 342 euros. Gonna test it with my Spyder4 to confirm everything as good as advertised. Hopefully won't have to return it~ Thanks again!
  3. After looking around, I'd say 250-350 usd.
  4. On Amazon.com? When filtered to show just the 27 inch model, it doesn't seem to be that big of an issue. I'm more worried about the below average input lag. I play FPS quite a fair bit, while I don't expect pro CS:GO level response time, I would still prefer it to be usable. I found BenQ GW2765HT, doesn't seem to have as good of a panel, but does offer decent gaming capabilities. Reading through the reviews right now, anyone have used this one before?
  5. Of course I have been researching as well... I'm just posting here in case someone have already done this type of research before and know a monitor to suggest. Speaking of which, anyone have experience with the BenQ PD2700Q?
  6. That...doesn't say anything about the image quality (contrast, color accuracy, black uniformity) and how well it's factory calibrated...
  7. Really? I don't think monitors advance as quickly as CPU and other stuff. A 1080p panel that covers 99% adobeRGB from a few years ago is still gonna cover 99% adobeRGB today...
  8. Hey all! Looking for a panel to last me a good couple of years. I do photoshop, lightroom, and gaming. I have a spyder4 elite to calibrate color but I'd prefer if the factory color is already well calibrated. I'd like something that's reasonably priced. As in if spending a little more over the absolute budget option will get you a good/noticable improvement, I rather spend the extra. Anyone got any recommendations? Thank you! EDIT: As for size, I think both 24 and 27 is fine. I currently use a 1080p 24 inch. I think a bigger panel would be nice, but I don't dislike 24 inch either.
  9. There doesn't seem to be a way to to adjust a curve in that though. Just setting constant temperature, or adjusting starting/max temperature. Also, it reports 37c on the palm rest on idle, what are you guys getting?
  10. My brother recently bought a second hand 2014 15 inch Macbook Pro with 4980HQ and 750m. Everything runs great except he complains the wrist rest area behind the keyboard gets too warm under light use (browsing web, etc). I'm thinking of adjusting the curve so the fan will run a bit faster during light use. The only software I found sets a constant RPM, it can't adjust the curve. Does anyone know a software to adjust the curve?

    Flying car named "Blackfly" a game changer?

    Normally when I think of cars, I think of something with wheels, and can travel on land. This looks more like a flying boat. IMO, when personal flying vehicles becomes affordable and transport cost is economically viable, I think most, if not all, should be autonomous piloting like current self-driving cars. A few dozens meters up in the air, far below where commercial planes fly, will be filled with lanes for these personal flying vehicles. Lanes invisible to the human eye but used by the self-piloting ai. Current self-driving car AI have so much difficulty navigating land because our roads and traffic rules are built fundamentally for humans. If we build sky lanes and sky traffic rules with mainly self-piloting AI's in mind, I'd say the AI's would work much better and be far safer than the AI's for ground cars. In my ideal world, no one, even with extensive training, should be allowed to pilot in these sky lanes. If they want to fly, use the currently established sky area for commercial planes. In my opinion, a 100% AI controlled transport system, with some human overwatching it, should be far safer and reliable than our current car based transport system.
  12. I'm confused, how does this work? So these are new types of SD card sized chip that can plug in either via PCIE (to get really high speeds) and USB (or whatever our current SD card uses), is that correct?
  13. Really hope this doesn't deter or make it impossible for other games to implement similar systems as OW's POTG. I really like the idea of a highlight replay system and it'd be nice if we see them in more games to come.

    Soon you'll be able to charge your electric BMW wirelessly

    Forgive me for being uninformed, but if this is the case, why aren't phone chargers using magnetic resonance then?
  15. Oh it does work. The acceleration was so ungodly slow I couldn't tell it was moving. Had to hold the key down for several seconds before there was any movement. Changed it to max acceleration now, still slower than I'd like. Any idea how to get it faster than Fast acceleration?
