  1. You do understand that this is more like Lifx/Philips Hue than a simple strip right? I mean, you have tactic panels for start, and programmable, so you can say when you touch one, or slide over some do this or that ...

    Dvi vs hdmi

    HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface), since 2002 It all depends on the version... hence you hear/see the port + version, like HDMI 2.1 HDMI specs per version version | band width (Gbps) | Color deeps (bits) | Max resolution 2.1 | 48.0 | 48 | 7680x4320 60p / 3840x2160 120p2.0, 2.0b | 18.0 | 48 | 3840x2160 60p1.4 | 10.2 | 48 | 3840x2160 30p1.3 | 10.2 | 48 | 2560x1440 60p1.0, 1.1, 1.2 | 4.95 | 24 | 1920x1200 60p versions through out time HDMI Version 2.1 (2017)Added support for 4K 120p, 8K, scene-by-scene Dynamic HDR and ARC for high-end surround sound (eARC). Ultra high-speed 2.1 cables are required.HDMI Version 2.0a (2015)Added support for high dynamic range (HDR) meta-data. See HDR.HDMI Version 2.0 (2013)HDMI 2.0 increased 4K frame rate without needing new cables.

See ITU-R HD standards.HDMI Version 1.4 (2009)HDMI 1.4 added major home theater enhancements, including 4K resolution, 3D, Blu-ray 3D, Ethernet sharing and the audio return channel (see HDMI ARC). See HDMI 1.4.HDMI Version 1.3 (2006)HDMI 1.3 boosted resolution, colors (see deep color) and gamut (see xvYCC). It added lip sync, surround sound modes (see True HD and DTS) and cable categories (see HDMI cable types).HDMI Version 1.0 (2002)HDMI 1.0 supported the first high-end digital TV standard (1920x1080). Versions 1.1 and 1.2 added DVD-Audio and SACD audio formats. some types: ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* DVI (Digital Visual Interface), since 1999: There are 3 types of DVI interfaces DVI-I (integrated, combines digital and analog in the same connector; digital may be single or dual link) DVI-D (digital only, single link or dual link) DVI-A (analog only) With some restrictions as well: Single link: 1920 × 1200 (WUXGA) @ 60 Hz Dual link: 2560 × 1600 (WQXGA) @ 60 Hz Analog video stream: 1920 × 1200 (WUXGA) @ 60 Hz The problem with old interfaces was always it's refresh rate, with monitors pass well over 60Hz, you would always need to use a DisplayPort interface to take the full res of your screen With such info, it's easier to take your own conclusions

    IPS or TN

    @Berko142 100% true ... believe me, I have 2 TN panels!!! 24'', 2560x1440, 1ms, 144Hz ... sounded amazing, I even bought 2!! but then ... Seeing movies bled my eyes, games are ok when they are moving ... soon I stop or in game menu ... ohhhh... my eyes! TN Panels are terrible doing degradé coloring, and it's just bad bad bad... I would choose (err, I will) a VA panel, as IPS is very good for people that do video/photo editing and color corrections ... I don't, I'm just a web developer and gamer here's some pictures and video so you can see how bad it is in a TN panel: https://photos.app.goo.gl/HW6fkkxakq5JTjcc7 as I said before:
  4. Does anyone have this product? Any comments, does it really worth around 200 bucks for 9 panels?
  5. Yes, IPS panels you get get better color reproduction overall ... but not with good VA Panels, and yes, no doubts, better image in wider angles ... but are you thinking of siting down aside and watch the screen? or havin' the screen do be a "public" display where you want to see it from afar and maybe side ? if it's mainly to see in front of the screen, why spend money on a IPS panel where we can get a great VA Panel for much less? IPS: + better color reproduction + better colors across wider view angles - refresh rates - response times VA: + better refresh rates + better contrast - not good view angles - color reproduction lower than IPS TN: don't even look at those ... I have 2... do. not. buy. them. if you want a screen for gaming without spending much: VA panels will delivery better 2 things: contrast (HDR!) and refresh rates (great for FPS games)... if you want for video/photo editing and color correction ... IPS! Sorry, I'm not into 27'' panels ... I only did my homework with 34'' and larger.
  6. those are not exactly ultrawide
  7. You will get better features with VA panels, IPS's have better image across wider angles (then again, we're always looking in front, and the curvature makes you don't get far from the edges)... as today, I would rather have an VA panel, you save the money and you get better refresh rates and contrast levels than IPS panel... for the same amount of money or course... don't wanna get challenged by a X35 screen

    To get the most of Netflix in a computer, you need to use the Windows App https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/netflix/9wzdncrfj3tj?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
  9. it's only 8 cm higher... 27'': 614 x 365 mm 35'': 836 x 445 mm Yes! the immersion in gaming plus more and more games have now Wide Screen support... is totally worth it (of course, it's all of a personal taste, and I do love it!)... try first, go to a store and check the ultra wide ones... the LG price vs the Benq EX3501R is almost the same... (that's why I'm so keen to swap my 2 screen for it) you also have more good ultra wide screens for the same price range - BenQ EX3501R (3440x1440, VA, 100Hz, 4 ms, HDMI/DP/USB-C) - Asus XG35VQ (3440x1440 VA, 100Hz, FreeSync, 4 ms, 2500:1, DP/2xHDMI) - MSI MAG341CQ (3440x1440 VA, 100hz, 4ms, 3000:1, DVI/HDMI/DP) But remember, no matter what choice you make, it's all about YOU! it's your feeling and happiness that comes first, so, 25'', 27'' or ultra wide, it's all about your money vs what you will fell when using such monitors I know I will only be happy with a ultra wide
  10. both amazing for the price ... then again, I would think going ultrawide
  11. I believe that if the LG would be correctly calibrated, it would have better specs... some results are to way off to be "correctly calibrated", I think the tests are simply "factory screens"... but remember, it's all about what are you doing with it, video/photo editing where you need colors to be precise vs video and gaming where you really don't need that precision to be perfect!

    @Jordanvt45 I just found this when looking at a screen review: starting at 02:43 he actually had a faulty cable and that was why he could not enable HDR on Windows 10. ohh, and skip to 05:39 when he talks about Windows HDR and that he had to turn it off...
  13. Mostly developing (web, windows, mac, iot) It's what I have at work, and I hate the TN panels I have at home ... no gradient can be reproduced and I see a lot of movies... I will still have the two panels, I might just put them up to have more screen space for something like dashboards... TN panels suck on gradients: That's how I see movies (even Youtube... no kidding!) - the gradient and when in Game menu ... arrghhhh!!! ... (i'm back, uff) After I re-found PowerToys, now for Windows10.. I fall in love for the big screens once again (3 years ago I demanded the office to buy me a Dell 34'', and I use that every day since). I know my pixel real-estate will drop as 2 x 2560 > 3440, but I tend to use only one screen (Visual Studio) anyway, and it's always off-center (either right or left monitor), or simply try to sell them...
  14. Hi guys, So I'm in the market to replace my 2xDELL S2417DG (TN panel, 1ms, 2560x1440) for a wide screen (34'' minimum) As a developer, I work every single day at the computer and I play at night, mostly World Of Tanks, but also other adventure games like TombRaider alike... (not a CS/Dota/Battlefield fan though) I'm searching for a minimum of a 34'' screen, with at least 3440x1440 and around 100Hz refresh rate for the gaming part,... I also, not looking into Samsung monitors, cause the reviews suck, there's always some greenish or death pixels after a while and I really do not want to go that road. If it has the USB-C port, it would be a must, as I own 2 laptops with thuderbolt connection (DELL and MBAir)... at work I have the Dell 3415W (but's it's 60Hz) I would also love if it was 1500R or 1900R I felt in love for the LG 38'' (LG 38WK95C-W) but the 75Hz just puts me a bit off track My current list - LG 38WK95C-W (3840x1600 IPS, 75Hz, 5ms, 1000:1, HDR10, 2xHDMI/DP/USB-C) - $$$ - BenQ EX3501R (3440 x 1440, VA, 100Hz, 4 ms, HDMI/DP/USB-C) - $$ <- money saving option - Asus XG35VQ (3440x1440 VA, 100Hz, FreeSync, 4 ms, 2500:1, DP/2xHDMI) - $$ - MSI MAG341CQ (3440x1440 VA, 100hz, 4ms, 3000:1, DVI/HDMI/DP) - $$ - LG 34GK950G-B (3440x1440 IPS, 120hz, 1ms MBR, G-SYNC, 10000:1, HDMI/DP) - $$$ - Dell AW3418DW (3440 x 1440, IPS, 120Hz, 4 ms, 1000:1, HDMI/DP) - $$$ - MSI MPG341CQR (3440x1440 VA, 144hz, 1ms, 3000:1, 1800R, HDR400, 2xHDMI/DP) - $$$ <- pay more for specs option Does anyone owns any of these or has experience with them? What are your suggestions? ...and no, I have no money to buy something like the X35
  15. I use a lot the SD card reader, but I opted-out for a cheap solution, a simple card/usb docking connected to USB3
