BenQ GV30 Projector Reviewed

Tuesday, January 4th, 2022

Not so long ago – wait, it was over a year? Wowser! – I reviewed the BenQ GS2 portable projector. It was a mix of excellent – if a touch expensive – hardware with terrible software. Mired, as it was, by an absolutely miserable, ancient version of Android. BenQ, whether they listened to me or […]

BenQ PD2705Q Reviewed

Friday, September 25th, 2020

The BenQ PD2705Q is a 27″, 2460×1440 monitor combining a colour-accurate display for graphic design and video editing workflows with a suite of workstation-friendly features that make it particularly alluring. First I’m going to have to address the elephant in the room- I’m biased toward higher resolution monitors because I’ve spent months using a very […]

LG 34GK950F 3440×1440 Widescreen, FreeSync Gaming Monitor Reviewed

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Once again I find myself testing a giant, glorious gaming monitor while ill equipped of both knowledge and hardware to truly do a thorough job. I’ve never purported to be a font of technical knowledge when it comes to displays, albeit I do have more than a passing understanding of many of the technologies involved. […]

LG 32GK850G QHD G-Sync Gaming Monitor Reviewed

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

When it comes to gaming monitors I’ll admit to having little experience and perhaps even little concern for what window I view my gaming through. I don’t play many fast-paced action games, so that competitive edge is meaningless to me. For the most part, in fact, I’m writing words or writing code. But despite being […]

LG 38UC99-W UltraWide Curved Display Review

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

The concept of curved displays is not new. They made their debut in Cinema way back in the 1950s where they were touted as countering problems with distortion at the extreme edges of wide cinema video formats. They’ve since arrived in the consumer television market where, frankly, they’re just another non-feature to shift an endless […]

Dell S2418H – 24″ HDMI/VGA “InfinityEdge” Monitor Review

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

With so many 4k, retina and ultra-high-resolution displays on the market, it’s easy to forget that there’s still a healthy demand for the humble 24″, 1080p monitor, which sits upon what I consider to be the intersection of price and quality and lends itself well to building multi-display setups on a budget. Prices for 24″ […]

Of Thunderbolt 3, USB Type-C and DisplayPort

Friday, May 12th, 2017

Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C are a complete and total minefield! I keep bumping up against this topic, and realised it’s a big enough, complex enough rabbit hole to warrant its own post. So here is that post. At the beginning of this year I switched over from an Intel NUC to a Razer Blade […]

Samsung XL2370 23″ LED Monitor Review

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Not content with looking at simply one LED monitor, I sourced a competing product from Samsung and managed to obtain the 23″ XL2370 which also runs at 1920×1080. I’ll come right up and say that the Samsung XL2370 is the inferior product in many respects, and it’s evident that either the Samsung brand has given […]

LG W2486L 24″ LED Monitor Reviewed

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Face it, LCD monitors have been boring for years and the phrases “high contrast” and “2ms” just aren’t enough to wake me from plain ignoring them. However, recently someone out there in gadget world woke up and decided it was time to start implementing thin LCD display technologies into desktop monitors where, although space may […]
