  1. I have cheap Newmen keyboard which I have been using for the past...3 or 4 years? Still works almost as good as new. W can stop randomly when I am holding it down IF I am very gentle with it. Pressing it normally, no issues. I guess, avoid Razer from now on? Are they the Apple of gaming?
  2. I got a Razer Abyssus about 1 year ago. Both clicks are almost dead. Double clicking instead of single clicking. Sometimes not clicking at all. Stops randomly from holding a click pressed. Dragging and dropping is almost impossible to do. I also had a Cougar Minos X1 I used for 2 years. A lot cheaper, only $20 compared to the $50 I paid for the Abyssus. Still works. After all that time there is an extremely faint hint that the left click is dying on the X1. That's it. Have you had Razer mice break down so easily?
  3. Not to ruin your fun but...I got the exact same model. Seemed like the absolute best choice on paper. Came with a dead pixel. The overall color accuracy was good and the 144hz felt nice but it had poor color uniformity especially towards the edges, worse than some TN and VA monitors I saw. Yes, I did the proper calibration. I returned it. Maybe your panel will be better, after all not all displays with the same model are identical.
  4. Looks good. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think that motherboard will require a bios update for the ryzen 3000. Also, what monitor did you choose? I am still looking for a good gaming monitor.
  5. MBR may have been activated by default. I didn't even know it can cause eye strain. Still, the monitor had other issues.
  6. Not 16:9? How does it work then? A 4:3 monitor with black bars at the top and bottom?
  7. If so, where can you buy them?
  8. Hello. So, I want something rather specific. But I can't find anything around these specs that is high quality. Just low end displays. Gaming 1920x1080 resolution in 16:9 format IPS panel (I don't like how TN looks, VA might get a pass if the monitor overall is amazing) Around 24 inches (Please, no 27 inchers or gigantic 30+ inch monitors) Flat display. No curved monitors. Freesync. Not mandatory. Higher refresh rates along the 120/ 144hz spot are appreciated but not mandatory. QUALITY DISPLAY. Again, can't stress this enough. So many super cheap low quality displays I came across. Ok...Now that's out of the way. Here are some of the displays that I looked over. Countless reviews from users and critics. Reasons why I don't want them off the top of my head: pixelization in solid colors, flickering, common dead pixels and high backlight bleed, extremely bright even on the lowest brightness setting, poor color accuracy, shaky monitor stand, flimsy power cable. No, I can't remember which model had each specific problem. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-V247Y-23-8-LED-Monitor/dp/B07FF3Q4NG/ref=sr_1_2?crid=UA576OKPKU2&keywords=v247y&qid=1574866576&sprefix=v247y%2Caps%2C262&sr=8-2 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-RG240Ybmiix-Monitor-FreeSync-ZeroFrame/dp/B07C5H9NDT https://www.amazon.com/LG-24MP59G-P-24-Inch-Monitor-FreeSync/dp/B06XDY3SJF/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=24mp59g&qid=1574866630&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.com/LG-24MK430H-B-Monitor-Widescreen-FreeSync/dp/B07JYPXZKS/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=24mk430h&qid=1574866891&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.com/LG-24MK600M-B-Monitor-Radeon-FreeSync/dp/B07JGL19WK/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=24mk600m&qid=1574866933&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sr=8-1 This is the one I got. Arrived with a dead pixel. Returned it. The viewing angles and uniformity were quite bad for an IPS panel. For some unknown reason it made my eyes hurt. Yes, I calibrated it properly, including brightness, contrast and gamma. No, I haven't had my eyes hurt on other monitors. https://eu.aoc.com/en/gaming-monitors/24g2u-bk Couldn't find anything on this one. Any opinions? https://www.asus.com/Monitors/TUF-GAMING-VG259Q/ Are there really no good monitors around the specs I want? Thank you in advance for your support.
  9. The main problem I have with 27 inch monitors is the size. They feel way too big for me. Yes, 1080p on a 27 inch isn't ideal but that isn't my primary issue. Are there really no quality monitors with the specs I previously mentioned?
  10. 27 inches feels way too big for a monitor. I just don't like it. Also I heard the pixel density is quite bad for 1080p. Even 24 feels a tad bit on the plus side for me. There are barely any 20-23 inch monitors so no point looking there.
  11. http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php I can't get the 48% green gamma value around 2.2 no matter what I do in my monitor settings. It doesn't even show up on the graph, again regardless of my settings. It is around 1.0 I guess. And in general bright green on the screen looks...wrong. Too...bright? I know because I tried a monitor which had proper 2.2 gamma and everything looked nice. Some of the other colors are also a bit messed up but none as bad as that bright green. The green is my main concern right now. Is it even possible to calibrate in this situation?
  12. I am struggling to keep 60 FPS at 1080p in SOME games. I have an rx 590. My CPU on the other hand is quite old, i5 4570. It is bottlenecking hard. I thought about getting a 1440p monitor but I have no idea if the FPS will drop by a huge margin. So, will increasing the resolution cause the FPS to drop further when the CPU is bottlenecking?
  13. Thank you for the info. Around here the policy is "2 weeks money back no questions asked". So even if you receive a product with no problems you can still be a complete bellend and return it. I don't tolerate dead pixels. None of my old LCD monitors ever had any dead pixels. And they were cheaper than what I just bought. So, all brands make cheap crap and expensive stuff. I want something rather specific. Gaming, 1080p, IPS panel, 24 inches. The problem is EVERYTHING with these specs is cheap. It seems the only expensive monitors around these specs are the Zowie esports monitors (which use a TN panel) and the occasional IPS panel at 144hz. 1080p 24 inches in general is cheap. So, what do you recommend that I buy?
  14. My main concern is "They don't make em like they used to anymore", which for most of the stuff I bought recently from phones to shaving razors is true. I still have a 10 year old bad boy from BenQ. Not even one dead pixel or other issues after all this time. Is BenQ still this reliable? And behold the new monitor I got has a dead pixel. Their tech support has been ignoring me for the past week. The store responded. Returning it. Also got a laptop last year with a few dead pixels, should have returned it. So, which brands should I pick and which should I avoid like the plague?
