Flat v Curved Monitors?

Thanks for all the comments guys - Think I'm going to get my geek on with a good spreadsheet and start comparing options available. At the moment my initial options are: AOC Q2778VQE - http://eu.aoc.com/en/products/q2778vqe?redirected=true Iiyama Silver Crow G-Master - http://gmaster.iiyama.com/gl_e...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

So I've been doing a bit more research on this, think I might have jumped the gun a bit and didn't appreciate the range of options available. Resolution - I think I've blissfully ignored the differences in resolution, my current resolution is 1680 x 1050 and it seems the most common resolution is 10...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

59252 For TV's its a waste of time unless its huge and you're sat 4 ft from it. monitors are different. You sit closer. And an ultrawide starts to look like 2 monitors but without a bezel in the middle. and as you sit close to it, curved looks better as it wraps around your vision. This is exactly ...

Flat v Curved Monitors?

So I've done a few upgrades on my desktop PC over the last few years, but completely neglected the monitor (Which might be a bit stupid after splashing out on a nice Gfx card last year but using a 10+ year old monitor) My current monitor is 24" and I use it mainly for browsing the internet and ...

Election - Who you voting for and why?

I wouldn't say that I like either Labour or Conservative, but I'm leaning more towards Conservative as I agree with more of their policies. I don't agree with increasing the tax rate for people earning £80k (I wouldn't be one of them as I don't earn anywhere near that much), having the top 2% contri...

The Division

58101 Is the game playable on PC?John Yes - Playing it on PC, although had to make sure I finished Fallout 4 before starting. I don't have a console so never got around to playing Destiny, it looked good though. 58103 I had it on PC. It was good for a bit, decent gameplay, nice equipment and stats ...

The Division

Anyone playing this at the moment? It was a gift for Christmas but haven't been able to get into it until last night as I needed to upgrade my Gfx card.

Only just getting started but quite like it at the moment.

How often does your Credit Card provider block your card incorrectly?

I very rarely have an issue, although I did try to buy some memory from Crucial last week and the order wouldn't go through, although I think this was Crucial not progressing the order rather than my Credit Card provider. For info - If you're travelling abroad take a look at a Card/App called "...

Phone update - 2016

I'm a fan of HTC, had an Incredible S originally then moved to a HTC One (m7). After 2 years the phone was still going strong so decided to move to a sim only contract and keep the phone, I've missed out the m8 & m9 and only really now considering the m10. I have a Samsung phone for work and don...

Windows 10 Problems - Complete Failure

May have been a bit quick to blame the mobo/cpu/memory, I decided to try and install Windows 8 on another HDD last night, I completely unplugged the SSD so I didn't install on that by mistake. I managed to get Windows installed without any problems and started downloading updates, waiting for the Wi...

Windows 10 Problems - Complete Failure

So I've been having a few problems with my PC and thought I'd see if the collective had any ideas on what the problem might be. I did some upgrades to my PC about 6 months ago, buying a new CPU/Mobo/Memory and a new SDD drive so that I could install a fresh copy of Windows 10. Its been running prett...

fitness band or apple watch

I had a look at these a few months back, quite liked the fitbit blaze and TomTom also released a nice watch.

In the end I wasn't convinced I'd be happy with any of them so decided to save the cash.

Fanless PC

Thanks Steff - I saw that bargain as well, I was initially after a black case but thought the white one actually looked quite nice, but then I realised this wasn't the FC5 alpha which won't support a full sized board. I was hoping to reuse my old ATX board to keep the costs down as I already have a ...

FBI v Apple

In another similar court case the judge ruled for Apple stating that the law being used to force Apple to unlock iPhones was wrong: http://arstechnica.co.uk/tech-policy/2016/02/apple-prevails-in-forced-iphone-unlock-case-in-new-york-court/ I'm in no way a legal expert so I could be completely wrong...

FBI v Apple

Anyone got any opinions/views on the latest news regarding the FBI wanting to unlock the IPhone in the US? I think the specific case is fairly black and white, if Apple unlock the phone it is only for this specific phone and is only done on Apple premises, making it very difficult for this to be reu...
