Lol yep, I ended up biting with this deal, so now I'm pushing this exact monitor with my 1070! Monitor is great - couldn't go bigger on my...

I do hobbyist music production with Studio One and a bunch of VSTs, as well as a bit of 3D rendering with Blender, plus various other bits...

But for someone like me, who likes to game AND do other stuff like audio production and 3D rendering, it seems like a pretty good deal.

Well they're not an amp, but they're powered speakers so I guess you could run your drums directly into the speakers without an amp. The...

I have the E3.5 as well, and picked up the Voll S8 when it was about $220. They seem to pair pretty well, and I prefer the small speakers...

I think you're right, I think all the LG panel-based ones are similar - advertise as 1000:1 but are closer to 800:1 (Dell AW3821DW, LG...

I have almost bitten on those Dell 38 deals before but I keep getting cold feed because of the relatively poor contrast and the lack of an...

Very interesting looking option, and I'm sorely tempted, but the lack of any kind of reviews online are holding me back. Some of the other...

I just wanted to say, THANK YOU for this advice. The previous "loose lead walking" advice we'd heard was to tug on the lead and walk in the...

Our Border Collie cross is the same. When you say "most products", does that include the one in this post? I'm wondering whether to give it...

If it makes any difference, the LG seems to have a much higher DCI-P3 colour gamut (95%) than the Dell (75%). In theory that'll delivery...

I had to admit, I had to Google "CTO" because I didn't know what it meant here. For anyone in the same boat as me, it's apparently...

I've tried different power points but the issue remains. I don't own a multimeter or anything. It does seem to be a common problem with the...

OK, I've just ordered a bunch of cables off eBay... hopefully they all work! Thanks for the info on this. I was hoping it would be as...
02/08/2021 - 14:13
In hindsight I should have done something like this, but I was looking for something pretty affordable and wired generally seems to give...

Unfortunately not - I only have the one extension cable that supports both audio and mic. The others I have are just stereo (2 channel)....

Eek! Wow that's messy, and will probably end up costing as much as the headset! I should have just bought a headset with a 3 metre cable...

Yep, my son is 95% on Fortnite (unfortunately) and it's basically always-on chat. Which makes the ground hum REALLY annoying for people in...

Hi there, I bought my son a gaming headset to use with his Nintendo Switch, which worked fine. However the cable wasn't long enough, so I...

From what I can tell, the VX seems to be a newer model (2021 vs 2020) but seems to have very, very similar specs. One point of difference...

You could just buy a keyboard for $50 and plug it into whatever laptop you have handy! :)

Bought this for my son a while ago. It's a great set, as others have said, although it's very fragile. Definitely more for the bigger kids...

I have a natural tendency to prefer Steam too (been using it so long), but as far as I know Steam still charges up to 30% commission (it...

I believe you set the desired screen brightness before starting calibration. I've seen 120 cd/m2 (or nits) as a suggested starting...

Are you suggesting people claim the item was not delivered so they can get compensation from AusPost or Amazon? Seriously, this is...

There's also the i1 Display Pro Plus available here for $379 (cheaper than the i1 Display Pro, even!):...

Interesting. Hasn't considered renting @shabaka. Just did a quick Google search and seems to be much more than $22 though.. this place is...

I'm only a hobbyist photographer, not a pro, so I'm just looking for something that will help me correct obvious colour or gamma issues,...
