Buy High Refresh Rate Monitors on Amazon: http://geni.us/yfDwE


Yes the ASUS PG27UK and Acer X27 are monitor god-mode with 4K, 1,000nit Gsync HDR, and 144Hz refresh rate…but are they the best value in 2018? What if there was a cheaper way to get almost the same thing?

I think that's the wrong version?




Women. They are a complete mystery.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)


Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)


Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

But if you own a Nvidia card the $600 pricetag is actually "similar" to what you'd be paying for anyways lol...


also for me my answer is this:

The monitor is basically the cost of my build w/o HDD's, possibly monitors too...

These Korean only monitors can be a good idea ..however not in this case.


So what are the advantages over the similarly overpriced Asus in the vid.


Better size

Less gawdy physical appreance.


What makes it worse.



Standard IPS

Poor color reproduction

Poor factory calibration

(likely poor input latency and Pixel response)

Only ~$500 cheaper.


So, it really isnt worth it tbh. A LCD display should never cost more than $1000, even at $1000 its overpriced. LCD tech has to many issues as a display technology, its also hela easy to manufacture both technicaly and in terms of cost. LCD 'should' be cheaper, but people keep buying them so they keep selling them at high prices.


PLEASE STOP touting these LCD displays as good, they are not good for the price. IF this Wasabi Mango was $600-$700, THEN it would be good. Consider that for ~$450 you can get a Similarly speced TV, minus 120hz, and you can see the issue. Are you really ok paying a $1000 premium for 60hz more without variable sync technology to take full advantage ?

...one of those visual novels that I definitely don't know anything about.  


The Kotaku review of the first game in that series is pretty great: "Why Won't These Hot Demons Seduce Me Already?!"



Now, I’ve never experienced “blue balls,” but I have experienced the immense disappointment in finding out that Seduce Me the Otome is, in fact, a visual novel so bloodless and tame that it makes Pope Francis look like Hugh Hefner.

There is no $1400 monitor like that on Amazon. Apparently there is WASABI-MANGO ZEN U430, 43 Inch Real UHD (3840x2160) TV Monitor, LED, which has three reviews with 1.4 star rating. Some quotes:



Very often comes with panel defects, all items are very poorly assembled at the factory


Piece of junk.


Would have been great to know it had a hard wired plug for 220, not usable in the US without adapters.
