srideruk

Interestingly I had kept see mixed information on the ASUS FX503VM i see it listed as 3GB on some reviews and some places like scan,overclockers but 6GB on others. Unless they have the same SKU but with different GPU but same model number just to confuse things

dasBOT

Yes the 120hz is TN 3ms and without gsync Im 100% sure this one is 75hz IPS gsync, the big problem with this panel is abysmal response time 23ms and 38ms GtG, fast shooters feels wierd

byzar

they are difference between them?

dasBOT

like always they are clueless, gl502 is 75hz IPS, 120hz is on fx502 and its a TN panel

Just thought I'd share my experience for what its worth. Followed the link to laptops direct, but ended up choosing an Acer Predator instead, Placed my order, received confirmation and a delivery date (I paid £10 for next day). no notification of any problem whatsoever. It is only that I happened to click the "track order" button that I then was directed to a page that said "awaiting stock" :{ I tried in vain to contact Laptops direct, spent 40 minutes on hold to the local rate number, and then another 20 on hold on their premium rate number, which sends you to approx 6 different switchboards, each one making you sit through a looooooong "help" message before giving you the options, no human contact at all. ....anyway, later that evening got a mail telling me there was a warehouse mistake, I would not get my delivery tomorrow (today) ...and that today by 3pm I would get a mail telling me when my delivery date would be ( no mention of what would become the £10 I paid for next day delivery) . I did reply to the message, no response. Then today I got an email saying that they are no longer able to supply the item, and that "shortly" a member of their sales team will be in touch to help me choose an alternative. Fortunately on the tracking page there was an option to cancel the order, so I did so, this seemed to take effect and I received a confirmation, and was told I'll get a refund within 48 hours. I must add that throughout this, and even now, the item is STILL listed on their site as "In stock for delivery tomorrow" I wouldn't touch this company with a barge pole.

Would be perfect for triple racing setup but I missed out. 3x 1080p is less demanding.

petermcgregor14

I was only lightly mocking your lack of deals. It's easy to say a deal is no good and yet not provide another alternative that's all I was hinting at. I am aware of all the above points you make, I looked into this when buying a projector. But despite the charts I have not stuck to the charts, have gamed on a 29inch inch 1080p monitor it was fine, I have gamed on a 32inch at 1080p it was fine, I have gamed on a 50inch 1080p tv sitting close to it and this was fine and I have gamed on a 1080p 120inch projector and it was fine, heck I've even gamed on an 120 inch 1024x768 projector and it was a very cinematic experience and again was fine. My point is you can't tell anyone this is no Good, everyone has individual needs and requirements and one person's definition of a good experience is different to someone else's, it's subjective, and in my opinion and from my experience a 32 inch 1080p monitor is fine. Also your chart suggests 4k is only just sufficient on a 30 inch screen from 0.6 meters away and that a higher resolution would be better. Tell that to everyone who currently games on 32inch 4k screens or 1440p screens god forbid. I might add this is a budget monitor, but if you're on a budget and value screen size over greater pixel density (you are entitled to prefer this despite what nate dog says) this is s good buy.

Nate1492

You have to use all 3 variables. Screen size, distance, and density. Have a look around, there are some tools to reduce the confusion and simplify it. https://www.tekrevue.com/tv-screen-size-calculator/ This is a rough estimate and from person to person this varies. But this shows my point fairly well. If you look at the 2 to 4 foot range and look at the 32 inch size, you can see the 'Ultra HD' (4k) is 'worth it'. Obviously this doesn't include the 1440p, which I am suggesting is best for 32 inch, but I can accept a 4k 32 inch as well.As you can see, 100 inch TVs (and bigger, extrapolate) has a much faster point of optimal. As you can see, at 9 feet, they recommend Ultra HD for 100 inch TVs, but it is not too far from the line. This is the key part to this. In short, if you sit too close to a large TV with a lower resolution, you risk seeing the screen’s individual pixels, which can ruin the movie-watching experience. Similarly, if you invest more money in a smaller 4K TV and sit too far away, you won’t be able to distinguish the extra pixels compared to the more affordable 1080p resolution. I see you attempted to turn this into some Trumpesque debate, I won't bite, I don't mind what my deals get, or what I post, I think it's a valuable discussion. I see no irony here, simply looking to make sure people don't get deceived into buying something that doesn't suit them. A 32 inch, 1080p gaming monitor is a bad idea. A 32 inch, 1080p, television that costs 180 quid is not cheap either. This brand is unheard of, I would suggest people avoid this monitor for gaming and for television. Also, it feels like a waste for consoles too, there are plenty better console based monitor options.

petermcgregor14

You actually hold a phone closer than you sit to the pc. One would therefore by your own logic suggest that the increased pixel density on phones is not a gimmick. 1080p is fine for gaming for me on my 32 inch monitor, 50 inch tv and 120inch projector screen from about 3 meters away. It's personal opinion you can't tell anyone it's Not! Oh and what's to stop people sitting back from their screen a bit when gaming? Most people use Xbox controllers to game on a pc anyway. If anything this would be better 1080p on a 32 inch screen than it would on a 50inch tv by your own logic. Maybe someone is sore there hottest deal is only 106 degrees. 1700 comments and 2 posted deals and yet you slag off deals. Quite ironic really. Feel free to post something better (popcorn) :) ;) (y)

Agharta

But this is for people who actually want that niche and it's not that small as otherwise Intel and others wouldn't still be releasing new models all these years later. So there's clearly a larger demand for these than you think.

Creatishh

Not saying there is no use scenario, just saying it's really a small niche, most people would be better of with other solutions, ie all in one's (expensive) or laptop docking which doesn't actually take much room, and has more use .

Agharta

The point of these is that they are tiny and can be mounted behind a monitor if required or placed in a cramped location neither of which is true of laptops. If you want a laptop then buy a laptop but if you want a tiny desktop then something like this is appropriate. I built a NUC system for my mother years ago and a laptop made no sense to her as she has an iPad and just wanted something small to sit under her desk; it actually sits on the sub-woofer.

Creatishh

Surely overkill to use a 300-500 mini pc as a media centre?

After looking into chromebooks for a bit today, this one seems like a great price for what it is!
Stuart_Crofts

I just bought a chromebook mostly for this purpose. You can download Ms Word from Playstore but can't edit documents unless you pay for a office365 subscription at £6 a month. This is to do with MS charging fees on chromebooks with screens bigger than 10". You can edit for free on MS Word online but be warned the templates I have set up for my buisness are all wrongly formatted using the online version. I'm not ready to pay MS a monthly fee yet for that so I converted all my templates to work with Google Docs... Which currently is free!

To be fair probably not completely different, they make the 250 G6 in a number of configurations and the core parts are the same.

Lowtrawler

Pretty impressive replacing a non-existent DVD with a HDD mount. I take it you have a completely different model. As for the SSD not being great, I assume you are referring it to being an M2 SATA drive rather than NVME? In this class of machine, 99% of users would be unable to tell the difference speed wise. One of the plus points of this machine is you can install a 2nd SATA hard drive internally in the spare bay so, if you want to expand the storage, it is easy to do.

Groovii.D

Spend extra on storage when you can and consider adding a graphics tablet .

MrPleasant_exe

Heads up, the SSDs in here aren't great, you can also add a HDD by replacing the DVD drive with a HDD mount (i did), display is ok. Whatever you do avoid the HDD model of this at all costs, they are worse.

WD only released its hybrid drives in 2013 so only 5 years ago. But I get your point. The first gen Momentus XT drives did have a few issues and there were several firmware updates for it (which many users didn't do). So many early drives did have problems, but that is to be expected with early adopters. My 8 year old drive still works fine. Performance has moved on somewhat in that time.

BigProfit4u

I already have a Seagate hybrid 1 TB drive with a Windows 8.1 OS on and I was also running an older 1TB SATA3 with another Windows 8.1 partition on which has started to wear out after 5 years use. I am planning on replacing the older one with this new Firecuda which should be quicker and quieter. :p

Izu

The price isn't bad for what it is, but SSHDs are inviting another point of failure into an important storage device for a pretty minor performance bump; a 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD doesn't come to much more than them rolled into one and the pure SSD is going to run a lot quicker. Though if you want to use this in a PS4 or whatever it's probably a decent enough bet.

CoeK

I assume you are using it as a storage drive and not as the main drive?

This only matters if youre gaming and need macros. If you dont need to use macros then dont bother installing or using the software. It should function perfectly fine without macros and the software. Bottom line is, its still a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Browns which are great. I can live without the software and macros if the typing experience is great.

jockey_boogs

can't recommened it due to software is the most complicated i have ever seen you can add a profile or a catagory of game to add macro in, however you cannot delete it and there is no way to set toggle on macro or on a button, you sacrifice capslock key for easyshift key and only place easyshift key can be re-maped to is 1 of the 5M-keys (macro key) either way u loose a button plus easyshift can't be recorded on the fly it has to be set in software before only macros can be set on the fly is the provided 5 M-keys and yes it is using old cherry mx keys not the newer ones.

Inquisitor

Question for the experienced I guess - I've got the wireless logitech keyboard and mouse with Unity on it, started to game on the PC, i very occasionally get sticky/slow keys and thinking of getting a mechanical keyboard.. However, is it really going to change my life in experience? I don't have a gaming mouse anymore and imo even gaming mice vs high quality logitech ones aren't too far off?

AngryCoffeeTable

I really dont know and I cant explain it either as I had a Corsair K95 that I had for a year before it was sold on and that was something like 4 or 5 years ago?? I cant remember exactly but the LEDs in that are going strong. Maybe the manufacturer of the switches were just cutting corners with later batches??? So many LED keyboards were being returned Im sure it was not just an isolated incident. Like i said, I bought a DuckyShine III for £130-140 at the time thinking the LEDs would last forever because DuckyShine are well known for the build quality of their keyboards but nope... LEDs still started dying. Dealing with Corsair Customer Support became one of my pet peeves as their K95 i had before didnt have the same issues with LEDs in the keyboards that came after that. Maybe it was a Cherry MX Browns issue?? WHo knows.

Chuggee

I've had my "old LED" backlit mechanical for 3 years and it still lights up fine. It is only one colour though and uses Cherry MX Reds, maybe it's luck of the draw, the keycaps aren't exposed either, they all snugly fit together.

To some making IPS comments, These monitors come up time and time again at this price.

Vega 64 uses more power, produces more heat +20°C like for like, then you have popularity of Nvidia cards, people will keep buying them unless AMD can produce something for less price and better. I would only buy Asus if it was from Amazon or OcUK as they have a 48 hour turnaround service for Asus graphics cards and motherboards, anywhere else and you're looking at 6+ weeks.

MasterAK

Why though? With the latest driver updates it's as fast or faster than a 1080 (as shown in the latest toms hardware reviews), and you save a ton of money through not having to pay gsync tax. The Asus 1080's are more expensive than this vega 64, so this is priced bang in the middle of the 1080 pack with only the cheaper models (by gigabyte etc) being lower.

It would probally help if the Vega 64 was less than the cheapest GTX 1080.

You are frustrated, you make up things so as to get social network rage: 1. You said, "You’d already sent more than one message to me before". How many messages did you ask me? Is it the same number, of course, it is! I am just responding to you after my first comment. 2. You said, "All I said was that the video was ace and that I would use it to spread the message." But you just go on and on, prompting comment after comment. 3. You do shut people (me) up after an hour of an equal two-way dialogue by saying "I had no intention prompting you to reply to it." Which is what you typed. But you just go on and on, prompting comment after comment. 4. I am out, looks like you have a self-control issue, this will be my last comment to you.

jmn16091990

I was asking why someone was rambling to me about portrait display use. You’d already sent more than one message to me beforeI asked. All I said was that the video was ace and that I would use it to spread the message. I had no intention of prompting you to reply to it.

splender

you did ask me why, so I gave you an answer, you ungrateful chap; next time, don't ask if you couldn't take answer Reminder of what you asked: "But why did you say the video is a joke? Why were you telling me?"

jmn16091990

I did know. Maybe you should have directed your comprehensive teachings to someone else? The frustrations I was referring to are purely from a personal aspect. e.g. a friend or family member poorly framed a video due to orientation, which is why I found the YouTube video funny.

sanmoh

Yes, that's right. But for general use VA monitors may be a better option as it has better contrast compared to both TN and IPS giving better quality images imo.

Athia

I believe TN is preferred for gaming monitors (at this price range) as it has a faster response time - 1ms here instead of 5-6ms for IPS at £20-30 more.

tawse57

I have had a look at both of these in recent days _ both seem good monitors and the price is good. But I thought that IPS is better than TN or VA and you can get some IPS panels for £20 or £30 more? Is it not worth paying the extra for IPS?

Recently got a 144Hz monitor, would this be good for most games 1920x1080 @ 144fps or would I need something a bit beefier? I have a GTX 970 at the moment which is ok but nowhere near 144fps for most stuff unless I do some serious tweaking (obviously, I bought the monitor with a view to using it's 144Hz capabilities with a future graphics upgrade).

matej_jones

That's a shame. My 3yo laptop is from there and it's been alright. Granted it has a mobile GPU rather than a desktop one so doesn't draw as much power. The Defiance V was the exact model I was considering, might look elsewhere now.

trate4

I bought the Defiance v from PCS (i7-8750h, 1070,144hz) and the laptop was nothing but issues, and the chasis itself cannot cool the cpu and has huge thermal throttling even with liquid metal applied and a huge -0.200 undervolt. I got a new bios update which supposedly "fixed" the issue and all it did was reduce the thermal limit for the cpu form 96 to 85, so it just gimped performance even further. Would not recommend at all. Sent it back for a return and hopefully will be refunded even though it's outside the window. I like PCS before, but for a laptop that supposedly went through 3 rounds of testing to be sent something that gets to 90-99c before bf1 even has done loading is a joke.

matt101101

You specifically mentioned wanting more CPU grunt for "higher end gaming". How often in higher end gaming scenarios can that extra 30% actually be made use of when paired with a GPU like the 1070?

Synesok

Imo the answer is because of the price, not as in its overpriced but simply because it costs £600+ pounds, its the same sort of folks who pipe up on the car leasing deals. 'ow much!, £600 for a graphics card? To play games with, COLD.!' That or the perpetual something better is coming, wait for price drops, brigade. Either way at the moment it's a good price for the best consumer card available

I’ve seen enough comments to suggest that Ebuyer customer service is bad enough that at this somewhat unspectacular pricing, its a risk buyers are taking. Hopefully 2019 brings about an end to the stagnation in the market. AMD have to accept responsibility for that as well.

kwl147

That and things generally being rubbish in retail business wise. Short staffed is common to see at most stores I see. So them not wanting to budge on the price doesn’t surprise me. They don’t want to lose money but its not our fault that they bought high and some of us rather not pay for mistakes not made by us. These prices are distorted and not representing the depreciation these cards have gone through. Nvidia needs to release the new gpus its worked on to break the stalemate. Most users have a working old gpu in need of an upgrade. That doesn’t mean they’re willing to be ripped off.

mollyalicekee

What’s wrong with eBuyer? I haven’t used them in quite a few years but I’m looking at building a PC again and I was considering using them for some parts. Any other places you recommend also? Thank you!!

kester76

Also true but these cards are still selling at slightly less than their mrrp. A good indicator is how expensive the 2nd hand market for these cards. I've not seen the market flood with all these used mining GPUs either. Maybe 2019 will be different but I would say 2018 prices will stay high until the low tier next gen cards are released.

7777777

i doubt they are selling, certainly not as good as they wish. the reluctance to lower the price might come from buying them at ridiculously high level.

If you check the overview it says it’s curved, you can also check the model/part number, which I did as I thought the same as you at first, they are both UM.JE1EE.009. The IPS panel is only 60hz and the one in the link is 75hz. I should get mine next week to confirm though
