Replies: 2
Views: 566

if you're a non professional, just borrow a color probe from somewhere , and calibrate whatever ips monitor you have at home, and it'll be fine.. Ask around , specially the at-home photography guys, they all have these probes, because it's the cheapest pro-photography tool they can buy, which makes ...

Facebook has a very specific purpose. It reduces the time cost to maintaining relationships/ creating new ones. For young people it's the primary way of mate selection..

I don't care about gaming but I do care about photo editing. For this OLED is a game changer as it allows a wider color gamut than anything else out there. OLED does not have a larger color gamut, it has higher CONTRAST only. Most LCDs actually produce wider gamut than current OLED.. reason? Blue O...

INcidentally ,, this is also why OLED is total crap for gaming.. because it doesn't have the ability to be backlight blanked, as it produces it's own light, it can not ever achieve the motion clarity of ULMB.. it will always have some ghosting.. We're still 10 years away from an OLED monitor that ca...

ULMB is night and day difference.. Fast motion is almost completely clear.. The one disadvantage of ULMB is that on the fastest setting (there are levels you can set), the screen is much more dim, so you can't use it in a room that's brightly lit.. But you can use the 10% setting, while not as clear...

I love the form factor around 30" 16:10, perhaps with some 20" 3:4 on the sides (they're quite cheap these days). It provides enough horizontal space for multiple at least 1200px-wide windows, and I appreciate the 1600px height (more rows of text). This is exactly what I was thinking about doing in...

Room temp, always. With rocks, usually at first. But the furious wee bars we have over here will usually melt it in a few minutes.

Negligent misrepresentation. Since, though you complain that the usage of verbiage is of no use, but keep insisting scam, when it's clear what was meant, I tried to get you to agree to a term.
