I haven't tweaked settings much. I let nvidia decide the default settings and it recommened 1440p. I changed it to 4k but with 70pc rendering so same as 1440p but with the user interface properly scaled. I got 45 fps benchmark. I turned off anti aliasing and overclocked best I could (presume my card is ec mining so got 10pc core and 5pc memory... Maybe could do better if renew thermal paste) I turned off anti aliasing and now get around 52 fps on benchmark.

TomScrut

I get performance I am happy with from a 1080 at 4k. I play on ultra with one or two things disabled (such as MSAA) and yes it drops beneath 60fps at times but still an enjoyable experience.

jamesturner280783

I'll take a look as iv been looking at a 1070ti as an upgrade to my r9 290. Gr widlands play around 40-45 fps on 1440p and titanfall 2 around 60fps 1440p. I'm looking for 4k at 40fps+ but what's put me off are reviews of the rtx 2070 which they claim still can't game at 4k and this thing outperforms the old 1080 card. Maybe tweeking the settings is the way forward. Iv played titanfall in 4k which looks stunning but 20 fps is unplayble. Are you playing widlands at 4k?

jameshothothot

One of the videos that convinced me to try a gtx 1070 as so much cheaper yet not much difference in visuals

jameshothothot

I recently got a gtx 1070 for 210 quid on ebay and sold my old rx470. I am enjoying 4k on medium settings as I watched a few youtube videos saying little difference. You can always get ultra textures it is just slight difference in shadow edges on ultra vs medium. Other games like ghost tecon wildlands I am playing 70pc rendering so 1440p but still looks amazing compared to my old 1080p display. I am getting arounf 50fps on ghost recond wildlands with a 10pc overclock.

If you're happy with okay then by all means purchase this for yourself! It's just personal preference at the end if the day why I upgraded my Monitor because of PC gaming, but that doesn't mean at all that it won't be great for somebody else such as yourself. Overall I'd recommend the Monitor for this sort of money, absolutely.

jameshothothot

Depends on the games. Some people love high frame rates esp for competitive shooters. Others like me prefer high quality graphics and immersive stories. I bought and posted a deal for 43 inch samsung tv with 15ms input lag for 329 quid (43nu7020) and this was the nature of the debate... Graphics quality vs frame rates. I am happier to play ghost recon wildlands and shadow of mordor in 4k at 50fps than cs go at 120 144fps.

latics

Can you expand on why you wouldn't recommend for pc gaming? Was looking for 4k 60fps gaming monitor for less than £200. Thought this may be ok?

Oh_Tyler

None that I've ever owned that actually had audio. But this Monitor was by far the worst... The sound couldn't even get loud.

victorovich1990

For competitive gaming, your total response time will be significantly larger than the response time of your display (the time it takes for pixels to change colour). Iirc (and I'm probably forgetting a great number of things), you have to account for the time it takes you to physically react and submit inputs, how long it takes for your peripheral to transmit signal, the time it takes for your PC to process signal and tell your monitor what to display, the wait on the monitors clock signal, etc. Strictly speaking, every ms counts, but 9ms is not enough to worry about unless you're a professional E-sports player. Using a high refresh rate display makes a much greater difference to your real-life reaction times anyway, so that's where your money should be going if you want an edge in competitive gaming. This monitor is only 60Hz, but 4K for £150 is fire :D

NarodWicked

To be fair, 27 and 28 inch is the minimum size for 4K. Personally owning a 4K 28inch monitor I can tell you that. In some games, i genuinely can't tell the difference to a resolution of just above qHD compared to 4K. In other games I can, it really depends on the game itself and how good the detail is. What I can tell you from all that is you will never know the difference between 4K and qHD on a 24" monitor, unless you literally sit just far enough away to focus on the screen, but no further.

TimeFor_Tech

Is 1440p worth it at this size???

Bob_Tomato

You are going to need a decent PC to run games on that and if you’ve spent that much on a PC it would seem odd to go for such a small monitor. But if you are v limited for desk space and really want 4K then it’s certainly cheap at that price (just don’t know if it’s good at that price).

Better to buy new as it will come with a 2 year warranty. These refurbs may be over a year old now, so will probably have less than one years warranty.. I bought a grade b pixel 2 from appliance direct and it was in mint condition, but the mic didn't work. Luckily Google replaced the device as it was under warranty

I'm new to Pixel. I've always been a Samsung user, due to the best cameras out there (or so I thought). I have to say, I'm now converted to Pixel, their cameras are even better than Samsung. I've not tried a P20 Pro, but you will be seriously impressed with the Pixel camera.

Surely having the best camera on any phone is another plus point? The negatives you mentioned are largely irrelevant, 128gb is plenty for most people.

JeKa-J

4 ms might only cause an issue with quick fps shooters where you snap shot somebody - usually though it's personal skill that misses the kill. The biggest point in my opinion that may affect you more in the gaming aspect is the 60Hz refresh rate if you typically get above 60fps in games. If those points don't bother you too much then this monitor is O.K for gaming, if that is your main purpose though I may consider better specs :)

Depends how good your eyesight is and how far away from the display you sit. I could spot individual dead pixels on a 5K monitor at sitting distance so 4K would certainly be noticeable. Valid point although they do make heavy use of scaling. Especially the macbooks which ship at half res as default.

No

Don’t forget retina macbooks and 4k laptops lol

Don’t all monitors pretty much have hdr10 tho?

brainsys

Well you get 4 x information for roughly 2 x price over a FHD screen. As long as you have good eyesight that's great for spreadsheets and documents. If it isn't you can scale to whatever suits you. Perhaps this is a monitor best suited to non-gaming applications. My 23" 2560x1440 is really great so this is tempting.

Any news on this £600 6gb 1060 laptop?

Balfington

It's a rebadged Clevo P670 and Clevo's are very good in the main. I had the 1070 version of this for a bit. Loads of room for more storage, you can get 2 HDDs in there plus an m.2 SSD but it is HEAVY, so much so that I thought I was going to die from deep vein thrombosis as I like laptops on my, y'know, lap. I replaced it with a MSI that's over a kilo lighter. Great machines if you're not bothered about weight.

I'm hoping Friday brings something down a bit. Not that I really need a 1060 6GB, it's for my son who generally plays games like binding of Isaac. The old gamer in me however wants him to have something that will run well, even if he won't use it!

Would this be any good as a dedicated streaming PC (gaming done on an Xbox)?

I'm going to buy a hard drive and use plex as the server. I might be in touch by pm if I get stuck when setting it up if that's ok? You seem to know your stuff. Thanks

Berwhale

I just plugged a 2TB drive into one of my Shields. It's working as a Plex server and I can copy files to it from one of my Synology servers. A couple of observations... * Make sure you apply any pending updates to Plex before attempting to set this up. * Enabling network access to the USB drive took a while. It seemed to fail several times before the username and password were revealed. * The Shield only supports SMB1, this it turned off by default in the latest builds of Windows 10 - you have to enable the SMB1 Client feature if you want to access the Shield. * Network copy performance is reasonable (but not great). I'm getting ~40 MBps when copying over a 1 Gig wired connection.

Yes - https://www.synology.com/en-uk/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/Virtualization/How_to_set_up_Synology_NAS_as_VMware_server_datastore

Not necessarily, the Shield will function as a NAS, so you could create network shares and copy data over Ethernet or wireless... https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4172/~/how-do-i-share-shield-tv-folders-with-a-pc

Thanks for all the extra information, gentlemen. I saw it ... and ordered it.... because it’s a cracking good price (saving £600+ on the latest model). HOWEVER, I didn’t check the model number.... or the date.... and, reading the comments about the keyboard, I decided to cancel the order. I’ve had MacBook Pro’s since 2010. I’m a late convert to Apple laptops... and I made the switch after experiences with Windows 8. To be fair, I had been eyeing up Apple laptops for a while. The conversion process was a little painful and took a long time. For a year, I straddled both. Nowadays, I also have a Surface Pro.... and I’m very impressed with how Windows 10 is developing... I write this to contribute a moderate redress to the anti-Apple posts. Apple laptops aren’t for everyone. But then, neither are Windows machines, I guess! What I like about my MacBooks (I have three) are: the builds, the absence of problems (although Windows 10 is making giant steps to smooth out the difficulties I faced when tracking down solutions to software glitches), the software that comes with the machine (Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iTunes, GarageBand, Photos, etc), the software I’ve added, and the seamless integration with my iPads and iPhone. What I really don’t like is the way the software always seeks to be the janitor of everything. I prefer the Windows way of organising files..... a heirarchical structure, logically organised by the user to meet the user’s needs and to work hand-in-hand with his intellectual disposition. Thanks for reading. And thanks to those who alerted me to the possible snags with this model. I can’t remotely afford the latest iterations of MBP. So I guess I’ll have to stick with what I’ve got....

jimbo001

These laptops are hilariously overrated, only buy them if you require a bespoke software you can't get on windows. I regretted owning one of these...

Cameron583

15 inch is only available in the 6700 HQ etc, so it's 100% same laptop but just silver in colour This is the 2016 model, for sure :-)

BowlOfPetunias

Really confusing, some sites say that part number is a dual core, but I can't find any record of a dual core 2.6Ghz i7. The bit about turbo boost I think is just a typo as again, I don't believe Intel have made an i7 processor that is stuck at its base clock. The extra £100 makes the deal very tempting!

pigdog237

It is the 2016 model, but still a good price. The "silver" model is actually £100 cheaper - I'm pretty sure it's identical other than the colour, although the spec suggests there is no "turbo" mode. From Googling for the spec, I'm hoping I'm correct as I've just purchased one!

I bought this case about 10 years ago... Is good silent case... slightly warm and scratches very easy... But still going. I had 10 fans in mine at one time. No bowing.

shez786

i purchased two cases separately as i was not happy with the first ones quality, nice case very quiet but metal is thin on the panels and the top part of the case where a fan can be placed, what his means is it bows in places, when the panle comes off the side it can be very difficult to get back on, when contacting fractal they stated that is normal !!

Got this monitor. It is an okay monitor for the money. My first IPS monitor, but noticed that on solid blocks of blue or orange, there are vertical lines. I notice them particularly when the monitor is at 75Hz, now running at 60Hz and less noticeable. Reading up on this, many cheap IPS monitors can have this. Also, this monitor does not have speakers.

Still got hope they have just missed the Q off the end but looking likely could be C model given the price. The description is definitely for the CQ model and if you use the filter function on the site it is listed as 1440p

It's an optional additional service. If it arrives deffective either LG or LaptopsDirect will probably take it back (LG will likely repair, whereas LD will refund/replace).

leeuk321

After buying an LG refurb a couple of years ago, which wrong recently, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Sure, a refurb TV might be just as likely to go wrong as a new TV, but you can get great deals on new TVs from places like John Lewis or Richer Sounds that come with a 5/6 year warranty. And I've had quite a few TVs croak over the years, so it's not too uncommon to dismiss the likelihood. If a refurb was 50-80% off then maybe I'd be tempted, but with offers on new TVs nowadays, it seems like a fools economy to pay X amount for 1yr peace of mind, when you could pay say 20-30% extra for 6 years peace of mind. Plus, as others have said, Laptops Direct are absolutely horrendous. I ordered a hard drive from there on offer, then over a week later they said that they were out of stock, and so would give me a refund (even though it was showing in stock when I ordered, plus remained as showing in stock the following day or two after ordered). I said that I was happy to wait until they got more in, but they said they had 'no idea' when more stock would arrive. Gave me a refund, then the following day it showed as back in stock, full price. I called them to ask if I could re-order at the price I'd just recently ordered at, and what a surprise, no dice. I couldn't recommend them less.

cossy3

The 7303 is deal of the day on amazon. Much better than this one. The Phillips Tv's have a lot going for them, if the software gets an update, they'll be right up there.

martin.herbert

(horror) for a budget tv I think it’s still good for the price. Obviously a lot of people have had issues with them though. I’ve actually cancelled my order for this and gone with the slightly more expensive on on AO for £449 (£20 discount for new customers so £429). It is what it is.

I believe the G7 has the same crap cheap plastic Sim tray that the G5 and G6 have. Very poor design. Took mine out of my G6 for first time since buying the phone 9 months ago. Part of the tray broke off and remained inside the slot. Bought it from John Lewis on a price match. Love everything about the phone apart from this poor cheap design flaw. Followed the instructions to the letter. I do wonder if the plastic becomes brittle after so long with temp changes. John Lewis spoke to LG who quoted 50 quid to replace the Sim tray. Which can be had for 2 quid on fleabay. But also said that this issue can damage the Sim card pins inside which in turn are connected to the main motherboard. If so it's 250 quid! I complained to JL pointing to quite a few instances online where the same thing has happened to others with the G6. Some claiming LG fixed for free under warranty. After escalating my complaint they have now agreed to reimburse me whichever cost it ends up being. Phone has today landed with LG. I have already had to pay LG 250 quid. Now been without the phone since 1st October. Took JL 3 weeks just to come back to me with the quote before we argued over who's fault it was. I've had 3 LG phones but it will be my last. I don't know if the G7 Sim tray is the same crap design but it looks like it to me. Be warned. I'm also not impressed by the JL warranty and after care service. I was told at one point that the guy who was supposed to call me back forgot. And when you call the number given the person who called you is never available. And one last point. JL no longer sell any LG mobiles. I did ask why but JL refused to comment.

It's interesting that Amazon was sub £400 last week but they have put their prices up on everything this week. I guess they are creating fake discounts for Black Friday?
