The ElectriQ 27" IPS is £10 more if you prefer IPS. Same 4K60 but looks like slower response time... https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/electriq-27-ips-4k-uhd-60hz-monitor-eiq-274kmb-hdr/version.asp (edit: changed a word for clarity)
their only pro is "most pixels for least cash". I bought four @ £199 each when everything else was (probably) £299 or more. Matching pair for myself and my wife. Oh, and they have lots of inputs: DP and hdmi. Almost everything else is under Con tbh. The colour accuracy is bad, the viewing angles are bad (both typical TN panel attributes), the build quality is pretty low, the coil whine is annoying. The stand is a joke, but I have VESA arms anyway, so no need to pay for something I won't use. I used them mostly for work. My gtx 1080 managed some 4k gaming but obviously you're capped at 60hz. If it was too choppy, you could down res to 1440p but if you did that, you're better off with a native 1440p panel Ultimately, I just replaced them all with LG 27UL500-W when they were £199 (currently £249). These are IPS so way better colours and viewing angles. No complaints. Same 4k60 limits
"Can anyone help me to clarify this? This is a graded product. A1 products are "as new" but have been box opened. All A1 products will be fully bubble-wrapped for transportation. GRADE A1" So are the phones used or refurbished or not? Also will we have some warranty with Huawei or just with the store?
Nice find @Jimster_C and well done on your first thread (y)
https://www.pocket-lint.com/phones/buyers-guides/huawei/152170-huawei-p30-pro-new-edition-whats-new-difference Not entirely if you had the base model extra 128GB and 2GB RAM. Plus you’re getting a new warranty. Huawei actually extended my warranty by a year too. I got the 512GB 8GB model though.
That is INSANE
That first moon picture is not very clear to me, it looks blurred, and the 'South Pole' seems to be in the wrong position on both, it is usually more to the right from the UK, like this one from Greenwich.
sent the above chap a nice ryzen 3600 deal via a link. im happy to help with custom orders, and ill point u in the right direction if u desire ryzen 5 3600 -> palicomp. if u desire intel -> CCL / awd if u desire a RTX3070 RTX3080 i would hangfire atm. 5600x prem build -> CCL / AWD 5600x budget build -> palicomp custom pitches on scan own website too, from there own idea from there GPU prebuilt machines.. but complete new pitches are via there website builder thing isnt that good value tbh. tell me in more ur desire.
Do you cater for personal requests?
Yes that would be great if you can find a suitable pc for my graphics card (5600XT)
power supply will be an issue, can sort u a better PC for ur needs though.
I have a 5600XT connected to my Mac. Can I easily install my graphics card into this? Will the motherboard/psu be enough?
Yeah that is impressive it can cope with gta v at that price and yeah I've been looking too one day I will buy one for sure.
Using the Rockstar games launcher and a small window! To be honest, I keep looking at Sarden84/Palicomp deals and, as much as i really would like a higher spec AMD Ryzen machine I just can't justify the cost for the limited number of games I play - We have 2 PC's refurbed as above and the performance is just fine for our needs....I will bite on a Sarden84 deal one day though ;)
How do you run GTA V on that?
Great word, but easy
save yourself £120 and buy a refurb if all he needs is word/browsing/emails - I run 2x24" monitors off this and have worked remotely for 12 months using it. Fast enough, reliable and copes with everything I need including a few old favourite steam games (Half Llife 2, Assassins Creed, GTA 5 etc)

Bought this in June I think when this came up for like £220 I think.... Don't buy this for Xbox it doesn't adjust properly to 21:9 Using with PC I am very happy with my purchase, if you're not used to curved or ultrawide it takes some getting used to but after a week I had grown accustomed to it and no longer felt slightly blurry at a comfortable distance. I've used it for office working and gaming. Gaming is a brilliant experience! many different FPS counters say 100FPS reached through HDMI which I previously read was only possible through DVI but my experience suggests this does work. Racing games are especially stunning, I feel as though you really don't miss out on 4K as it's still beautiful to use. Office work is a pleasure and very productive, though I'd say do your research on curved monitors and how this affects your work specifically. MS office tasks are fine. To sum up...... Gaming - Yeah you could get higher refresh rate/ res 27" for the same money but I need an all-rounder Office - Pinging windows to the corners can be unusable realistically sometimes but overall its a great experience and I can't fault it If you want an all-rounder 3440x1440 for office and gaming this is a great choice when you consider the height adjust, pivot 180. The only con.... the stand by mode gets annoying and turns off too quickly but I guess I do love polar bears....
Just a correction. Refresh rate does not limit frame rate. He can still run 120FPS on 100Hz, it just won’t be “true 120FPS”
Also to add, consoles do not support the ultra wide resolutions of monitors like this, you'll get black bars down the side.
Will continue to bash laptops direct till the end of time. Terrible company, my monitor came broken - took them three months to give me a refund after I threated legal action in the end. Stay clear
Just to clarify the above, I mean to say the difference between say 144fps to say 240fps is much less beneficial than moving from 60fps to 144fps - unless you are a pro gamer on CS Go or another eSports title.
Yeah I took a gamble as I'd never heard of it.. However I believe they possibly use cheap components for the power supply hence the grounding buzz issue I experienced.. As I say tho most people may not get that as my set up is for music production and I'll notice any tiny unwanted interference!! Most of all it's taught me that anything over 23 is just overkill at a desk situation when you're not leaning back with a gamepad etc!! Which I did and it was great but that's not my main usage!
I've got one, is great for my needs, i.e. docs and casual gaming. Res is fine I think, similar pixel deesity to a 24" 16:10 1080. However, Laptops Direct customer service was not great. I paid for their dead pixel check, but they sent 2 out with dead pixels before I got a good one. Was a painful experience. They should have paid me for doing the checks!
You made the right decision. Too big, poor resolution for the size, and unknown brand in the monitor space. I mean, what kind of quality can you really expect for a 200 Hz 30” monitor with HDR and a 1ms response time costing just a little over 200 quid? Of the cheaper brands, I would only recommend AOC as they favour quality of panel with decent colour accuracy over features. 3440x1440 for 30+ inch monitors work well in my opinion.
I got this the other week, unfortunately it created some sort of grounding buzz noise in my studio headphones connected to an external sound card so I returned it.. Doubt most people would have this problem think it would be specific to certain set ups maybe... Aside from that the monitor is amazing and looks so good... HOWEVER I was so glad to return it as I found it way way too big and imposing from a sitting at a desk distance.. It was great for Ableton as I could see more of my tracks without scrolling etc.. But I was so happy to go back to the 23". Worth bearing in mind if you're wondering about the size etc
Wish this wasn't a VA panel or I would have got it been looking for a good high refresh rate monitor for so long
It is not quite clear whether £153 for Pixel 4a was a glitch of some sort by the seller, nevertheless Vodafone did honour the deal while stocks lasted.
gixxerk6: But it would then be more expensive. I don't think it is designed to compete with the high end manufacturers. OK, it will be somewhat more expensive (especially with the current chip shortage). I don't think it will be high end expensive though. For example, Oppo A94 is currently £100 more at Argos and Amazon. ColorOS not quite Android One but similarly well regarded. In a couple of weeks it might be only £50 more. Sometimes what's thought of as high end could even be cheaper. Like today's Pixel 4a deal for £153.
Sorry I thought you were the other op!
