  1. Nope, I believe you're correct. They're the same panel, the Alienware is HDR600 as compared to the 38GL's HDR400. The Alienware is technically the best panel, unless you prefer the look of the LG.
  2. 38" UW's a nice format. If you like your Dell but want to add HDR+Gsync, maybe look at the LG 38GL950G-B. Yeah, it's not HDR1000. It's one of the best panels you can buy though.
  3. Whatever you choose, don't base any decision you make on "input lag" or "response time". You will not be able to tell with your usage case. We're not talking high-tier, competitive FPS here. There's no camera movement, there's no crosshair, and nothing you do is split-second. The things that will matter to YOU are pixel density, screen size, and display mounting options, since it sounds like you have limited space and may want the change how everything's lined up at some point. You should buy solely based on these things.
  4. I think I'm a bit confused on what you're looking for. I understand you want a monitor mount that's freestanding, am I correct that you want the mount to hold two G32QC panels?
  5. I think you can make a great cooling setup for less than £700. I don't believe there's any reason to even bother with sub-zero. You have a server-size space, and noise isn't a factor. Get some great radiators, and use some server-grade fans to pump as much air as you can through the system. If the server space is properly ventilated, you'll keep everything close to ambient and you can do it indefinitely with yearly maintenance.
  6. There just really isn't a market for them. Right now, most of the work being done that requires high resolution can be done perfectly fine at 4K. I can only speak to the limited photography and cinematography experiences I've had, but for us, color reproduction accuracy is far more important than any push beyond 4K. I usually sit about 2-3 feet back from the mastering displays and from that distance, the individual pixels are not readily distinguishable. I *guess* it would be nice to have even larger displays to appreciate the impact of some of our larger-format work before it goes to pub
  7. Yes, the more light you can give yourself, the better your end-image will be. As far as color temperature goes, 6500K is going to be a little bit on the cooler side, or more blue. You can adjust the color temperature right there in-camera, but if for some reason you had no way to adjust it, I'd recommend going with a slightly warmer light rather than a colder one, cold light tends to be less flattering for skin tones.
  8. In that case it's probably best to find a bright lamp or several that fits within your budget and either bounce it off the wall, shoot it through a sheet, or make a homemade softbox.
  9. The short answer is, it depends. The long answer is, it really depends. We need some more information: Are you going to be taking photos or video? What environment are you going to be working in? Indoors? Outdoors? How much control do you have over the light that already exists in your space? How far away are these lights going to be from your subject(s)? Are these lights going to need modifiers for the look you're shooting for? Basically, if you want an exact answer to "how many lumens do I need", you'd have to give us a Cine Designer file and
  10. My setup is very much like the one you describe, my mounting point is on the back of my desk and I like my monitors suspended very far forward so the they float over my keyboard and mouse. I've got three recommendations for you depending on your mounting style preference. They're all from Chief, you can look them up either through the Legrand A/V website or through ErgoDirect. The K1C330 is a single desk mount that spiders into three dynamically adjustable arms. The center arm doesn't look like it's adjustable for depth, so this may or may not be the right one for you,
  11. >Newegg.com >Monitors >Sort by price High>>Low >Select #1 result >Checkout Now In all seriousness, start with what you know. You have a budget, and you have a screen right now. What does your screen do right now that you wish the new one would keep doing? What does your screen not do right now that you wish the new one would? Do you like your aspect ratio? How would changing it affect the applications you use? Do you like your current monitor's color reproduction capabilities? What would you gain/lose from a change i
  12. I'm sure there are *some* people out there who are annoyed by it, but I am willing to bet that that market's pretty small, to the point of it not even being worth it to add another SKU for most manufacturers, let alone to develop another process they're happy with. That's not to say that they're not working on improving image quality though. Screens have gotten WAY better in terms of both clarity and glare rejection.
  13. I think it depends on what you're looking for when you say 4K. There's panels like the LG 38GL950G, which is 3840*1600. You're correct in that it isn't "true" 4K or DCI 4K. No ultrawide will be in the expected 3840*2160 resolution, simply because of the aspect ratio. So you'll either have to look for something like the 38GL950G, which is 4K in the horizontal dimension, or something like the LG 34WK95U-W, which is 5120*2160, which is "4K" in the vertical dimension. (and 5K in the horizontal). To help the rest of us make better suggestions, can you elaborate a little m
  14. That's fair. Getting rid of the stand is going to be a huge plus, no matter which way you decide to go with it. You won't be able to do any vertical height adjustment on that one but if you don't mind, it's pretty much impossible to beat that price. You can always decide what solution you'd like to use for your second monitor later. Once you get the UW mounted, you can see what kind of space it leaves you and I'm sure it'll give you a much better idea of what looks best for your setup. Best of luck!
  15. Are you *absolutely* sure you want to wall mount it, as opposed to maybe getting a grommet or pole mount? I understand the appeal of a wallmount. It frees up desk space on the actual surface and floating panels look much cleaner. On the flip side, you're limited in positioning. You'll have to put the mount over a stud, and extend your arms from there. If the stud is off center, you'll have to live with it. If you ever want to change monitors down the road, you'll have to make sure the panel size and weight can fit with the mount and arms you have. I'd recommend a g
