AOC’s current gaming range
     Thu, Jan 28 2016 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing so important as the right screen, and nowhere more so than in gaming (alright, graphics professionals may beg to differ). We test rather a large number of monitors at Hardware.Info every year and follow the market closely. Gaming displays are much more these days than mere ‘1ms’ models, as AOC’s recent offering aptly demonstrates. We tested 5 different models from AOC’s current gaming range, the G2460PF, G2460PG, G2260VWQ6, G2460VQ6 and G2770PF – with and without FreeSync, G-Sync, but mostly with, AOC has a model for every budget. We were quite impressed by several of these screens. To see which those were, check out our review:

Posted by: STAFF
In this article slash review we will test out the 599 EURO FreeSync compatible ASUS MG279Q Gaming 27-inch 2560x1440 monitor that can do 144Hz. Combined with FreeSync, AMD eliminates stutter and tearing while gaming. The ASUS MG279Q Gaming is a spectacular IPS panel based monitor with great image quality and heaps of connectivity.

Acer Predator X34 G-SYNC monitor
     Mon, Jan 25 2016 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By combining a stunning 34" curved 3440x1440 IPS panel, a refresh rate of 100Hz and G-SYNC technology, the Acer Predator X34 is expensive but this may be the best gaming monitor available.

Massive curved gaming monitors seem to be the flavor of the day and BenQ's XR3501 may be one of the most insane. It boasts a 35" curved MVA panel with a 144Hz refresh rate.

Philips Brilliance BDM3490UC Ultra-wide 21:9 Curved Display Review
     Thu, Jan 21 2016 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s no surprise that ultra-wide curved screens such as the 34-inch Philips Brilliance BDM3490UC are becoming popular as they present a compelling alternative to traditional 16:9 displays. The extra width and subtle curvature gives a cinema-like experience in movies, and for desktop use, the extra pixels means more documents open on screen at any one time.

Acer Predator XB270HU G-Sync Display Review
     Wed, Jan 20 2016 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer’s XB270HU is a 27-inch G-Sync display with a bright IPS panel. It supports a native WQHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 and a refresh rate of 144Hz, with Nvidia’s ULMB technology to boot, rounding off an impressive specification that puts it directly in competition with high-end adaptive-sync gaming displays from other manufacturers.

Acer Predator X34
     Tue, Jan 19 2016 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Gaming at 3440x1440 is a sight to behold in most scenarios and I'm not so sure I could ever go back to mere 1080p gaming or even 1440p. Depending on the game, the size and slight curvature definitely increased immersion. While a few games lack native 3440x1440 support, you can always play in windowed mode at 1080p or 1440p. Unfortunately, I've never used any other 3440x1440 monitors to compare the Predator X34 to, so I cannot say if this is the best one for your money. You can find 3440x1440 monitors for as little as $800 without the bells and whistles, but throw in G-SYNC, the curvature, the four USB 3.0 ports, and more, and suddenly the $1300 price tag isn't all that unreasonable.”

The Predator X34 monitor
     Tue, Jan 19 2016 | 12:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we look at the Acer Predator X34 monitor today, the first 34-in curved panel to support G-Sync, it comes 3 months after the release of the similarly matched monitor from Acer that worked with AMD FreeSync. The not-as-sexyily-named Acer XR341CK offers a 3440x1440 resolution, 34-in curved IPS panel and a 75Hz refresh rate. But, as NVIDIA tends to do, they found a way to differentiate its own products, with the help of Acer. The Predator X34 monitor has a unique look and style to it, and it improves the maximum refresh rate to 100Hz (although that is considered overclocking). The price is a bit higher too, coming in at $1300 or so on Amazon.com; the FreeSync-enabled XR341CK monitor sells for just $941.

ACER Predator X34 Curved G-Sync Gaming Display Review
     Sun, Jan 03 2016 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a curved monitor with NVIDIA G-Sync support the Acer Predator X34 might be exactly what you are looking for. This monster 34-inch curved display sports an IPS panel with a 3440x1440 screen resolution for a 21:9 aspect ratio. The monitors default 60Hz refresh rate might not be anything to get excited about, but Acer is letting users overclock the panel up to 100Hz if DispalyPort video input is used to help cut down on motion blur. Read on to see how this monitor performs!

Hands-On Video Preview With Acer Predator X34
     Thu, Dec 31 2015 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Curved monitors have been cropping up all over the place, and even a few curved all-in-ones have made a showing here in Q4. Acer recently stepped up with its Predator line of displays including the 34-inch curvaceous Predator X34 that we immediately sat-up and took note of. The Predator X34 is not only a 34-inch curved panel targeted at gamers with refresh rate overclocking up to 100Hz, but it also comes with two flavors of Adaptive Refresh Rate (ARR) technology - either NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD FreeSync. We've been working with a Predator X34 G-SYNC variant for the past week plus and have a quick hands on video preview tease here. Feast your eyes on this apex predator panel that can pretty much do it all, in addition to bringing the gaming beat-down wrapped around you slightly for maximum peripheral pleasure.

Acer Predator X34 Curved G-SYNC Monitor Review
     Sun, Dec 27 2015 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're a PC gamer or into enthusiast computing, how would you describe your ideal monitor? For many, it might go something like a 32 - 34-inch IPS panel with a high refresh rate of 100Hz or higher, 4K resolution, along with NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD FreeSync technology. And with displays this big, adding a slight curve might be high on your wish list as well. The good news is, with the recent advancements in display technologies, that "holy grail" set of specifications is beginning to take shape, as display manufacturers like Acer, ASUS, Samsung, Dell and others begin to build all this great new tech into bigger and better high-end displays. In fact, the new Acer Predator X34 series captures three out of four of those "ideal" spec check box items, maybe hitting all of them, depending on your perspective. Acer offers two variants of curved 34-inch IPS panels with adaptive refresh technology, the Predator XR341CK which is an AMD Freesync enabled model and the Predator XR341CKA that we'll be digging into here, which is the NVIDIA G-SYNC-enabled version. This panel also has a 100Hz overclock setting, a fast 4ms pixel response time and 100% sRGB color gamut capability...

This is NOT a proper monitor stand!
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Today’s comparison round-up at Hardware.Info is something few publications really pay attention to and admittedly, we don’t regularly do so either. Still, if you want to use more than one screen at a time, whether for productivity or gaming, you are going to be looking at a monitor stand sooner or later. So we looked at some too, to give some idea of what’s available in the market if you want to use three screens – and threw in a couple of other models we received as well. We have models from specialists such as Newstar and Ergotron, but also XFX and SilverStone representing more well-known brands amongst hardware enthusiasts.

ASUS Zen AiO Pro Z240IC Review: 4K All-In-One With Guts And Glitz
     Sun, Dec 13 2015 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s been quite some time since we last looked at an all-in-one PC. Although there is clearly a niche market for AiOs, the product segment has always kept a consistent rythm in all facets of computing - consumer, enterprise and SMB. These types of systems appeal to style-conscious users and businesses that need computing utility with good looks, that blends in and stays out of the way. And though many are not powerhouses, a few do catch our enthusiast eye and one of those few is the Asus Zen AiO Pro Z240IC, which Asus is billing as “The pinnacle of Windows all-in-one PCs.” That may be a stretch and certainly a bold claim, but the Zen AiO Pro also looks pretty strong on its rap sheet, with a 4K display, discrete NVIDIA graphics and Intel's new Skylake 6th generation Core Series processor. So we brought one in to kick the tires.

Posted by: STAFF
Dell and the term "gaming monitor" haven't been used together in a long time. The 27" S2716DG aims to change that with NVIDIA's G-SYNC and a high quality TN panel.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
