Philips BDM4065UC 40?4K Monitor Review
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 1:54P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The humble desktop monitor has come a long way since the early days of huge CRT and even the chunky first generation LCD screens. Nowadays we can pick up a new monitor that is thinner than a Blu-Ray case, albeit those panels are expensive and few and far between but you get the idea. We use them for almost all of our viewing needs that can’t be handled by a smartphone or tablet, they have even replace most TV’s due to the reduced price and higher compatibility with computers and games consoles, with no resolution issues.

AOC G2460PQU/BR Review
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 1:50P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The manufacturer AOC has always been known for its inexpensive monitors. Years ago they have produced CRT monitors but today they produce high-quality monitors with TFT technology. Today AOC sends the G2460PQU/BR monitor with 144 Hz to the test field and wants to show us that inexpensive does not always mean bad or slow. Whether this monitor can convince us and if it has the latest technology or not, we now show you here on OCinside.de.

AOC G2460PG G-Sync 144Hz 1ms Gaming Monitor
     Sun, Sep 27 2015 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On July 4th we reviewed the latest G-SYNC monitor from ASUS, the 1440p ROG Swift PG278Q 144hz. It was undoubtedly one of the best monitors we have reviewed in the last year. However at £719.99, it will prove too expensive for the majority of the enthusiast audience. Today’s review product, the 24 inch 1080p AOC G2460PG G-Sync 144Hz will be more palatable for many – priced at less than 50% of the ASUS screen, at £347.99 inc vat. Is it worth the money?

Acer Predator XB280HK 4K display with Nvidia G-Sync
     Mon, Sep 14 2015 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Predator sounds a dream display for gaming. It’s a 28-inch 4K monitor that supports Nvidia’s G-Sync technology. It has a high quality TN panel and although it only goes up to 60 Hz rather than 144Hz like many other G-Sync displays, it’s still enough for the intended effect of tear-free gaming up to 60fps. With such a good specification and a price tag that’s competitive with other high-end gaming monitors, should the Predator XB280HK be your next display purchase?

Ultra HD monitor
     Thu, Sep 10 2015 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ve got a nice comparison test for those in the market for a state of the art – yet affordable – Ultra HD monitor. We have tested no lesss than 17 models! After our earlier review of 6 32” screens (included in this overview) we now present an in depth comparison of a large segment of the market. No matter the budget, there is an Ultra HD screen available. Which one is the best you can read in our extensive review.

Hands On with Nvidia's Mobile G-Sync, Origin EON-17X
     Mon, Sep 07 2015 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've ever witnessed variable refresh rate (VRR) technologies like G-Sync and FreeSync, then you likely know VRR one of the most significant gaming improvements in recent times. Now the technology has finally gone mobile.

Acer XB270HU
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer XB270HU finally offers something that computer users have been waiting for for a long time; a combination of image quality and speed that thus far has not been possible. The IPS (AHVA) panel used works as you can expect and delivers excellent colour reproduction and very good viewing angles. The response times are near the ones previously only possible on TN panels, they are only slightly behind and unfortunately the screen does suffer from a bit too much overshoot. We do think however that only the most die hard gamer would not consider this screen in favor of a TN panel, everyone that uses his PC for other things besides gaming would have to think about a monitor like this one. The price difference with 144Hz TN screens is only small, making it hard to not at least consider this screen.

Datacolor Spyder5PRO Monitor Calibration Tool
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink

Think your monitor is a little off in color? The Datacolor Spyder5PRO aims to make it perfect. We tested it on six different displays to see if it lives up to its claims.

VESA Adaptive-Sync standard
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 6:42P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a Q&A session this afternoon, I asked Intel Fellow and Chief Graphics Software Architect David Blythe about Intel's position on supporting the VESA Adaptive-Sync standard for variable-refresh displays, and he had an intriguing answer for me: Intel is positively inclined toward standards-based solutions like Adaptive-Sync.

SilverStone SST-MR01 Aluminium Monitor Riser Review
     Mon, Aug 17 2015 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SilverStone may be well-known for their power supplies, chassis and coolers, but that’s certainly not all they product. SilverStone have won my heart in recent years with their high-end audio equipment such as the EB03 AMD and the EB01 DAC, as well as their premium grade headphone stand, so when I found out they had a monitor riser that kept in theme with the design of those other products, I leapt at the chance to take a look at it and complete the SilverStone set that I’ve acquired over the years.

Asus' MG279Q is a 27" FreeSync monitor
     Sun, Aug 16 2015 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus' MG279Q is a 27" FreeSync monitor with a 144Hz, 2560x1440 IPS panel for an appealing price. Our own Gyromancer, Nathan Wasson, has spent some quality time with the MG279Q, and he's collected his impressions in video form.

Acer Predator XB270HU 27-inch 144Hz IPS G-Sync Gaming Monitor
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 4:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer made one of the best gaming monitors ever with its Predator XB270HU. An IPS-based QHD resolution with NVIDIA G-Sync provides an awesome experience."

Philips 288P6LJEB UHD Monitor Review
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are testing at OCinside.de the Philips 288P6LJEB UHD Monitor. HD television exists for some time now. However, HDTV is not fully established yet, despite the better picture quality. The wide range of BluRay HD movies, the video on demand services and the amount of non-HD televisions keep the sales of HD TVs still high. For the manufacturers that is no reason to rest on their laurels and thus exist for quite some time televisions with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels (UHD-1) and 7680×4320 pixels (UHD-2). Also for computer displays the time has come to support UHD resolutions. Therefore we would like to present and test the Philips monitor 288P6LJEB with UHD-1 resolution.

ASUS MG279Q 27-inch IPS FreeSync Gaming Monitor Review
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS MG279Q WGHD gaming monitor is the latest monitor in ASUS’ ever growing line of gaming-gear and has been one of the most highly anticipated displays for the summer of 2015. This display features a 27-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution (WQHD) and a 144Hz refresh rate. This display means that gamers no longer have to sacrifice image quality by going with a TN panel to get that 144MHz refresh rate you want for silky smooth gaming. The ASUS MG279Q also supports AMD FreeSync technology for tear-free gaming, although when you run AMD FreeSync the refresh rate is only supported in the 35 Hz to 90 Hz range on this particular display. Read on to see how it performs!

BenQ GW2765HT 27-inch monitor
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:38A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BenQ’s latest mid-range monitor is a 27-inch 1440p screen with an IPS flicker-free panel. It’s suitable for most general tasks, with excellent picture quality and a bright screen. It should be fine for working at the computer, watching movies and web browsing. And with a low response time of 4ms, it’s great for gaming too. Along with a good feature set and excellent colour reproduction, the GW2765HT looks like a worthy investment, considering its relatively attractive price.

Asus MG278Q FreeSync Game Monitor Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:23A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus MG278Q is a 27-inch WQHD (2,560×1,440) TN gaming display that supports AMD FreeSync adaptive-sync technology. When in adaptive-sync mode, it’s capable of a wider frequency range than its IPS cousin, the MG279Q, as it can go from 35Hz all the way to 144Hz. And being a TN panel it has a fast response time of just 1ms – this is a display for people with AMD graphics cards who want gaming without tearing and micro-stutter across a wide frequency range with the lowest response time possible.
