Most people find 1440p at 27" gives well sized, readable text. Windows scaling is really the best option if you find text too small, as...

Lowest was $359, and I should've grabbed one then...

A dehumidifer will always do a better job of being a dehumidifier, regardless of where you live. I do live in Queensland. If you want...

Yes, but an actual dehumidifer does a better job while using 1/10th of the power. Don't buy a portable AC like this one.

If this model is similar to the VX2705, the Dell is definitely the better monitor. Of course, if you actually need the wireless headset...

Yes. A heater like this is exactly 100% energy efficient. Reverse cycle AC can be up to 600% efficient under ideal conditions, but...

Yep, just ask them for it as they're required to give it to you. They aren't required to give the pupil distance (PD) measurement which you...

I own the original GPW... I have both right side buttons disabled and lights off to make the battery last longer, so I'd definitely take...

It doesn't, the Gigabyte has the same panel but it's implemented better. For the price difference, I'd probably get the Xiaomi at $429...

It's been dropping below 5 degrees in the western suburbs at night. That's cold.

It's a good price if you're specifically looking for a 27" 1080p monitor... personally, though, I just wouldn't.
08/06/2021 - 16:17
My old build with an i5 4670K (same CPU, but overclocked) bottlenecked a 980 Ti pretty hard at 1080p. A 3060 is at least 50% faster. I...

Same panel, but Gigabyte's implementation is better. Definitely worth the bit extra imo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5FunMmbztw

For general gaming, probably not. The S2719DGF is pretty good for a TN panel.
22/05/2021 - 01:47
Pretty much on par, with the M27Q maybe marginally better. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/m27q...

> The only difference I found are that one is a VA while the one is IPS? This is a pretty big difference. The Gigabyte is also curved, this...

Also seems to be free delivery to inner suburbs of Brisbane, but not all metro areas. $160 for delivery to my address while it's free one...

If you intend on upgrading the GPU later on, get something better and higher wattage. If you absolutely don't, it's okay but you're better...

150% scaling makes everything slightly larger than FHD with super sharp text.

Dell is 1440p, this is 1080p. The Dell is better for everything except competitive fps games.

Dial in 3600 16-16-16 1.35V and it should just work (stress test to check though!), those are very loose timings for high end B-die. You...

Like all overclocking, you're playing the silicon lottery. I have this kit and can only do 3600C14, faster than that needs over 1.5V...
29/03/2021 - 20:46
Your calculations are wrong but the theory behind it is correct. 3600MHz means each clock is 1/3,600,000,000 of a second. You also need to...

These sticks will be probably Hynix AFR which won't clock well if at all. For a Ryzen 5000 CPU imo it's definitely worth the extra cost in...

Usually between 25/26, sometimes turning it on then off for a bit because even set to 26 it feels too cold if it's been on for a while. Too...

If you're a gamer, 144Hz is absolutely worth the extra spend.
