I think that VA, IPS and TN, as well at the subsets of some of the three types, all have their limitations.
It depends which you can live with and your needs.

My BenQ 27" 1440p IPS designer monitor is particularly good. Hardly no glow at all and is colour reproduction and uniformity is great.
When I tried a Samsung £800 34" VA panel I returned that for various reasons but I was not that impressed with the colour reproduction and shift across the screen. The black crush and slight smearing was also not good. Perhaps I expected better when paying that sort of money tho.
In the end I kept my 27" BenQ as my primary and got a 25" Dell 1440p IPS as my secondary monitor.
I did find that a 24" at 1080p to be a little blurry by comparison.

Even with its limitations and issues if you win the panel lottery then I'm happy enough with an IPS panel.

Each to their own.

VA is terrible no matter how much I tried to like it also watching movies was a nightmare

Yes, the aoc 32" i recommend does exhibit a bit of ghosting but i find it pretty easy to ignore once i get used to it. Contrast does more than make up for it, never seen such good blacks on a screen, none of the shades of gray a lot of panels suffer with.

Guess there is always a trade off...

This is double the refresh rate. Maybe overall it's better value but it deosn't mean it's better then a different monitor offering different specifications at a cheaper price. That other monitor seems to have ghosting too, which is a put off.

Hi SmadmadThere's nothing unfortunate about it, that was the comparison …Hi SmadmadThere's nothing unfortunate about it, that was the comparison that was asked for. The 55mu7000 is a superior TV on Samsung's own rating system to the 49mu9000 which costs considerably more and is smaller. I have no idea how Samsung formulate the nonsense that is PQI, but if you're telling size is a factor I believe you. Display specifications (not gospel I know) indicates that the 55mu7000 has some form of local dimming in any event.That the 55mu9000 is rated higher is by-the-by given that it's current best price £1,174 at coop https://electrical.coop.co.uk/brands/samsung/all-samsung-products/samsung-ue55mu9000-55-4k-ultra-hd-smart-curved-led-tv-sam-led-ue55mu9000-s/ even with a code (CPA75).


It isn't the superior TV. Regardless of pqi score because that doesn't factor in a lot of factors. It will measure brightness, resolution, etc but doesn't factor in other things like local dimming, upscaling, picture enhancements. The mu9000 and the flat mu8000 even in 49" are better tv's just because of the precision local dimming. The difference that makes to HDR is good. I have always ignored pqi

I rang and was told it was out of stock despite the website still showing available stock an hour after I ordered. I spoke to Sonia first who was polite and she passed me on Jake who kept trying to talk over me, how rude.

They can increase the price and they will not suffer a profit loss because they will still attract millions of customers. Companies like Huawei and OnePlus have to sell their phones at what they are worth because their brand name alone isn't attractive enough.


Let’s face it, Apple spends more money on RnD than any ching chong company you can name on here, in order to offer the most integrated and sophisticated operating system for Mobile and stationary devices in the world. If you think you pay for hardware forget about it, many makes can match and surpass that, it’s the ecosystem as a whole NO ONE can compete with. Some don’t like it, but a whole lot of people do, you don’t become the biggest company on earth because you fooled everyone. If you can’t afford it don’t troll it just because of that. The envy brigade is all to present in these corridors. Just buy what you can afford and get the best you can get!

I've been waiting over 2 months for my Destiny II codes. Never received my Amazon voucher that they advertised (£30 per card). 10 Mails, 2 phone calls, disputes raised. Still waiting. I'm £90 out of pocket and got no option but to moan about it here (and elsewhere) until I feel that I've cost them well over £90 in lost tradeBeware, great prices, terrible customer service, don't expect any freebies they advertise.



Agreed. Bought a £350 GPU from them. Very clearly showing as available ex-stock. They took payment promptly however subsequently advised product no longer available from them and suggested they were contacted to discuss an alternative - no offer of a refund. Several days later and complaints emails and still no refund. Cannot recommend this company. Awful post-sales service. Absolutely awful.

Laptops direct will ship in late january so your going to have to wait 4 weeks for it. For me Its a question of how much do you want the extra warranty with JL and are you willing to wait for this to be delivered? I'd return it, because with quidco or which deal you could get this for 800. so if someone asked you would you take this laptop for £150 just for 4 weeks what would you say. (150 not 200 because i'd say the i7 is worth an extra 20-30 for performance and an extra 10-20 for resale value). I called Laptops Direct twice and both times got put through to someone straight away who were helpful so seems like quality customer service. Hope this helps. Also this was £770 last night, when i called they said might go up or down, I got in a tad bit too late but even gold version was 760 and silver 800. Deal of the century that would have been.


Thanks to you and NuckenFoob for your help.

Have decided to return the i7 and have a think on this deal.

Thanks once again

From hunting around it's quite difficult to get all what you want for a reasonable price. Which is why I though it was a good deal despite no SSD. The model you purchased has 14 inch screen with lower resolution and no optical drive if i'm right. But thanks for the link and info anyway.

That maybe the case, but they usually use a generic photo of that laptop which may have different components installed to others in the range.

Not at all - you've just assumed it does. They come with a dummy drive (which can be converted to a HDD caddy). It's in the specs, and they don't suggest or imply that there is an ODD fitted.

Something has to fill the gap where an ODD goes.

Mine arrived yesterday, does add a bit of weight to the phone but works pretty well. I'll possibly only attach it when I'm going to be out and about

Works well this

john lewis has the same product forr £59.99

Couple of places have it around that price but still too much for only 2200mah. I could get a much higher capacity per bank for the same cash. Only mod I actually have is the soundboost 2 that came with my z2 play. Again, not worth the money over a basic bt speaker. I love the idea of the mods but the amount you pay for what you get just isn't good enough.

Altcoins go up and down though, use a profit switching algo thats not nicehash. Realistic ROI exp would be 7 months with free electric. Most altcoin surges either drop or the difficulty is increased so unless you wanna risk hodling... go with one that pays btc, ether, or ltc. If your into risk, look further afield.

I've bought this, I'll let you know if the code works.

It doesn't list the free game (destiny 2) but after looking around inno3D have a game redemption page & it's listed on serial number only & doesn't list what model, only a "1080/1080ti). Worth a shot !

Getting this model myself for VR, in Thailand though where it's a bit cheaper. Did wonder about the brand/name as I'd never heard of them before, whether it was some Asia specific or dodgy etc. so had a good little research and they seem pretty good, a great, well made card by all accounts.

Wait for Volta end of life for Pascal


Going to be a long wait, Nvidia are still releasing new Pascal cards. You won't see consumer versions of Volta this year and even if you did they'd be the initial variants only, with newer TI versions under 12 months later which blow them out of the water like we saw with the 1080 and 1080TI. There is no "perfect time" to buy a new GPU, the debate should really be about price.

Is it value for money to have a card that gives better performance for 12months + or stick with one which is under powered? That's the question people need to ask - what value can they get out of it.

For reference the 1080 came out on 27/05/16 with the 1080TI verison less than a year later on 10/03/17.
