SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC Review
     Fri, Mar 16 2018 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Moving from the 20Hz - 22kHz featured in the base Arctis models, the Pro series is capable of reproducing audio in the range of 10Hz to 40kHz, earning itself the High-Res Audio Certificate. To complement the Arctic Pro headset, it is also available bundled with the GameDAC, which is a USB DAC powered by the ESS Sabre 9018, providing up to 96kHz 24bit audio. But wait, there is more!! RGB LEDS!! <<< No, not just that, but DTS Headphone:X v2.0, the next step in virtual surround technology.

Philips New 49” Curved Super-Wide QHD Display
     Thu, Mar 15 2018 | 5:05P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"Today EPI, the North American brand license partner for Philips monitors announced that its Philips Brilliance 49-inch 492P8 Curved Super-wide LCD display will be coming to U.S. markets with a new QHD display in Q4 of 2018.

This week, the display earned a 2018 iF Design Award. One of the most important design prizes in the world, iF Design Awards are hosted by the world’s oldest design association, iF International Form Design GmbH in Hannover. This award testifies to Philips’ commitment to combine increasingly advanced viewing experiences with design excellence.

The display features a 5120x1440 resolution VA panel with an 1800R curvature, up-to 600 nits brightness, up to 5000:1 contrast ratio and 178 degree viewing angles. This award-winning monitor’s frameless display is intended to be highly appreciated by users with multi-monitor configurations in finance, engineering, design, audio/video production and other industries who would gladly swap two displays for one super-wide. For connectivity, the monitor features DisplayPort, HDMI, USB-C, VGA, USB 3.0 and Ethernet.

iF Design Award with its 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, evaluated more than 6,400 candidates from 54 competing countries and praised the immersive design of this giant 49-inch display, which perfectly combines functionality with innovation.

“We are very excited and proud that our Brilliance 492P8 curved display has been recognized by iF Design Award jury. We take this as a confirmation of our outstanding capabilities in innovation and design and continue on our path to provide leading product innovations with dedicated design focus to the market,” says David Ray, Marketing Director for North America at EPI."

Asus ROG Strix XG35VQ Review
     Mon, Feb 12 2018 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus ROG Strix XG35VQ monitor comes packed with features bringing a ton of value if you're after a killer ultrawide gaming experience: 35" 3440 x 1440 VA with a 1800R curve, 100Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support.

AOC Agon AG271QX Monitor Review
     Wed, Jan 31 2018 | 1:16P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After testing the AOC AG241QG nVidia G-Sync monitor we are testing today on OCinside.de the 27-inch AOC AG271QX FreeSync monitor with 2560x1440 16:9 WQHD resolution and up to 144 Hz frame rate. In the detailed review we also give some tips on buying a monitor, on display settings and a comparison of the current monitor resolutions.

Acer Predator X34P Monitor Review
     Mon, Jan 29 2018 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past two years the Acer Predator X34 has remained one of the best gaming monitors on the market. I've been so satisfied with it since launch that that I've kept it as my personal monitor for both gaming and video production. But this new monitor from Acer, an upgraded version of the X34, is even better in almost every way.

AOC Q3279VWF FreeSync 31.5in Monitor Review
     Tue, Jan 23 2018 | 12:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Screen sizes over 24in used to require budgets bordering on £500 and even beyond, particularly once the 30in boundary had been crossed. But with the Q3279VWF, AOC is offering a 31.5in display for significantly less than £300. In fact, at the time of this review the AOC Q3279VWF was available for £200, which is phenomenally cheap for this much screen area.

Acer Predator Z35P 100Hz G-Sync Monitor Review
     Mon, Jan 22 2018 | 1:22P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we looked at the AOC AG352UCG which brought a different spin to the massive ultrawide gaming display by using an MVA LCD panel instead of the IPS panels used on the likes of the Asus PG348Q. Well, just like London buses, two have come along at once. The Acer Predator Z35P is identical to the AG352UCG in terms of raw specs, with the headline feature of both being an MVA LCD panel that has double the contrast of rival IPS models – 2000:1 compared to 1000:1.

VIZIO SmartCast M65-E0 4K UHD HDR Display Review
     Wed, Jan 17 2018 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all that long ago, high definition 1080p image resolution was heralded as the biggest entertainment improvement since the DVD. Technology continued to tick ahead and, before Blu-ray ever truly became a household standard, ultra high-definition 4K (2160p) displays arrived on scene, and later High Dynamic Range. With Ultra HD Blu-ray and streaming video content now offered in Ultra HD, it makes sense to upgrade. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we test the 65? VIZIO SmartCast M65-E0 UHD HDR home theater display with Google Chromecast built-in.

AOC AG352UCG 100Hz G-Sync Monitor Review
     Mon, Jan 15 2018 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arguably the most desirable gaming monitors of the moment are the range of 34-inch, 21:9 aspect ratio, 100Hz, IPS displays typified by the hugely popular Asus ROG PG348Q and Acer Predator X34A. And, at first glance, the AOC AG352UCG, appears to be yet another in that roster. However, this monitor has two crucial differences.

Viewsonic XG2730 Review
     Sun, Jan 14 2018 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the XG2730 Viewsonic has a gaming display in its portfolio, which makes use of the 16:9 aspect ratio. Equipped with a TN panel and 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution this is a mid-range gaming monitor. Apart from that there is even support for AMD Freesync in combination with 144Hz refresh rate on board, allowing for effective elimination of any tearing effects.

AOC Agon AG322QCX Review
     Thu, Dec 14 2017 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AOC, we need to talk about your product names. The monitor I have to review today is called the Agon AG322QCX, which no one sane will remember after reading it. And that's a shame, because there's quite a memorable spec sheet to discuss.

Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K Monitor Review
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 4:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has a long history of producing high-quality displays, and the recently released Dell UltraSharp 27 Premier Color UltraHD 4K monitor (model UP2718Q) we will be showing you here -- the company’s first to support HDR10 -- is no exception.
