Acer Predator XR341CK FreeSync monitor
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 3:48P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer's curved Predator XR341CK brings leading-edge innovation to AMD's FreeSync monitor range. At over $1000, it isn't inexpensive but the feature set and awesome color reproduction may make up for the price.

Philips 272G5DYEB 27-inch G-Sync display review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:46P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Philips 272G5DYEB is a 27-inch G-Sync display with a focus on fast response times and high performance. It offers G-Sync up to 144Hz, incorporates a TN panel and a 1ms response time, with a 1080p native resolution. It’s also considerably more affordable than some of the more high-end G-Sync displays.

AOC Q2577PWQ 25? IPS Monitor Review
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve never really been a fan of buying a monitor, I tend to only look at three key aspects; screen size, resolution and the overall appearance. While that is generally a good way to choose a monitor, there are a multitude of other features that require your attention depending on your intended use. If you are a gamer or avid video editor, the response time and refresh rates would be of key interest to you to ensure that there is little input lag from your input device and that there is little screen tearing. Professional photograph editors may be less interested in those features, where the contrast ratio, brightness and available colours are more important.

Nixeus NX-VUE24A 144Hz FreeSync monitor
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 4:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are dozens of monitor supporting AMD's FreeSync technology but the Nixeus NX-VUE24A seems to be unique. It offers awesome performance, great image quality and a truly low price.

Philips Brilliance 241P6EPJEB IPS monitor review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 2410P6EPJEB is a 24-inch IPS display with a 1080p native resolution. It is aimed at a professional market and therefore offers a lot more than a typical entry-level display, with a flexible stand, integrated USB hub and a wide range of inputs.

Samsung SM951
     Sat, Nov 07 2015 | 12:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is it. This is the day we have been waiting for. Ever since we feasted our eyes on the NVMe version of the Samsung SM951, we’ve been begging Samsung to release this as a consumer product. Bonus points if it was powered by their 3D VNAND technology. It took them a while, but they came through, officially announcing the 950 PRO exactly one month ago, and launching them today! Not only will we dive into the performance of this new model, we will also include its results in our new Latency Distribution and Percentile testing.

Acer XR341CK is one of the best iterations
     Thu, Nov 05 2015 | 12:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at one of the monitors that promises to change how you view productivity and gaming. The Acer XR341CK continues the momentum of a new aspect ratio of monitors, 21:9. Otherwise known as UltraWide displays, they are available in both 2560x1080 and 3440x1440 resolutions, though our testing model today uses the latter, larger option. This Acer has a slight curve to it as well, just enough to be enjoyable without changing viewing angles for the primary user. With a 34 inch diagonal measurement, IPS panel technology and AMD FreeSync variable refresh rate support, the Acer XR341CK is likely to be our new favorite monitor for AMD Radeon users.

Kensington SD4000 Universal USB 3.0 Docking Station with 4K UHD Review
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 4:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For today’s review I’m venturing a little bit out of my normal area of storage, network, and server components and take a closer look at a very useful gadget for everyone that has a laptop of some sort. Kensington might be most known for their locking system that is present on almost any electronic device, but they do make a lot of different products too. Today I’m taking a closer look at the SD4000 Universal USB Docking Station for laptops.

TechPowerUp 120 Hz Build Guide
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming at a refresh rate of 120 Hz can be as much of a revelation as 60 Hz is, to people moving from 24-30 Hz consoles. We will piece together a kickass 120 Hz, 1440p gaming desktop with adaptive-sync technology.

ASUS released the PG278Q
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A lot has changed since ASUS released the PG278Q including the release of other higher quality monitors from the likes of Acer, BenQ and others. ASUS showed off some new G-Sync ready displays at CES but that was way back in January of 2015 - more than 10 months ago! The PG279Q was the most interesting to us then and remains that way today. There are some impressive specifications on the table including a 27-in 2560x1440 screen built on IPS technology, to improve color reproduction and view angles, a 165Hz maximum refresh rate and the best build quality we have seen on a gaming monitor to date.

     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 1:32P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you had asked us what we’d change on the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q when we evaluated it last year, we would have said upgrading to a higher-quality IPS panel would be ideal, without sacrificing on the refresh rate. More inputs would also be welcome, as would better cable management features. A couple of those features simply weren’t feasible then, but as they say, times...they are a changing. The brand new ASUS ROG SWIFT PG279Q we’ll be showing you here takes everything we liked about last year’s model and gooses things up quite a bit. This new monitor has an IPS panel and a max refresh rate of 165Hz. It also has multiple inputs and some cool new features, though it has a similar design language...

LG 34UC87C 34" curved monitor.
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are curved monitors the next big thing? LG would certainly like to convince you their massive $1000, 34" 34UC87C is a perfect solution for gaming, movies and content creation.

Philips 227E6EDSD 22-inch IPS Monitor Review
     Sun, Oct 25 2015 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 227E is the smallest screen from a new line of IPS displays from Philips. This 22-inch monitor features the firm’s new SoftBlue technology, using LEDs that are designed to adjust the wavelength of blue light to cause less eye fatigue, but we’re equally interested in the value for money it offers. At £119, it’s one of the lowest-priced 1080p displays on the market, but since it’s based around IPS panel technology, it’s really good value for money.

ASUS MG279Q 144Hz IPS FreeSync Monitor Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we took a look at the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q G-SYNC monitor last year, we praised it for its sleek design, thin bezels, support of NVIDIA’s adaptive refresh rate technology, and high-quality TN panel—relatively speaking. TN (Twisted Nematic) panels generally have fast response times and can be more affordable, but at the expense of color accuracy and viewing angles. The TN panel used in the ROG SWIFT was surprisingly good, but it still couldn’t compete with higher-end IPS panels in terms of overall quality. And because the display was designed for G-SYNC, it was outfitted with only a single DisplayPort input. So, while we really liked the ROG SWIFT PG278Q, it wasn’t without its drawbacks. If you had asked us back then what we’d like to see upgraded in a display like the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q, we would have said a fast IPS panel and additional inputs would have been ideal. But, IPS panels with ultra-high refresh rates were virtually non-existent last year. That’s not the case today, however. The ASUS MG279Q we’re going to show you here has an IPS panel with a 144Hz refresh rate, a bunch of inputs, and many of the same styling cues we liked on last year’s ROG SWIFT...

Samsung S32D850T WQHD Monitor Review
     Tue, Oct 20 2015 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are testing a special monitor on OCinside.de that already appears almost too big at first glance. It is the 32 inch WQHD Business Monitor S32D850T from the manufacturer Samsung. Whether this monitor can only let the desk collapse, or really brings the big-screen feeling in the office or home office, we will determine in this review.

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.
