IPS Monitors

My 28inch dell fell off my desk the other day when i tripped over the dog while painting the soon to be VR room. I had been wanting to get an IPS panel for a while so i picked up a cheap AOC 23in IPS from best buy today for 120$.

It is unreal how nice it is. Solid picture, ungodly contrast, perfect colors. It really showed me just how horrible my TN panel was. Ive always been irritated by the led bleed, color bleed and overall inconstancy of the picture. And when you turn the brightness down enough to get decent colors you get a complete haze from the LED's which makes the screen look like mud. Not to mention moving your head 1/3 of an inch and everything is thrown off. Nothing but fatiguing and eye straining.. None of that with this cheapo IPS.

So in conclusion.

I will never buy a TN panel again and recommend you throwing your TN in the garbage and buying an IPS for the sake of your health, stress and eyes. Also 28 inches was to big for me and kinda silly. Im liking this smaller 23.

I'm holding out for 4K to be affordable before I upgrade monitors again. Also, I use a 42" HDTV at 1920x1080 (which is low res for a PC, but then I can run everything at max and it's huge, so it still looks good).

I'd been wanting to move to dual screens for awhile, nice for some of the work I'm doing, so when it came time, dual 27" IPS, side by side, works real nice. Barely fits on my desk.

My old TN screen wasn't that bad tho, but wasn't even 1080, so it's a huge upgrade.

I went to Sham Shui Po today to see if I could snag a pair of Acer 1440p IPS 3ms gtg G-SYNC monitors. My wallet was spared when I went too early and the place was closed except a few smaller booths.

I'll try again tomorrow.

Probably speak really good Chinese, be born in China, have an advanced degree in management and possibly background in chemical engineering, and be willing to work for $2 / hour :P

Rommel's just a white face, gets paid for making companies look good, since only good companies can afford foreign executives. It's all surface.

Forget all that learning stuff, here is your solution:
Chinese companies 'rent' white foreigners

Quote:
For a day, a weekend, a week, up to even a month or two, Chinese companies are willing to pay high prices for fair-faced foreigners to join them as fake employees or business partners.
Some call it "White Guy Window Dressing." To others, it's known as the "White Guy in a Tie" events, "The Token White Guy Gig," or, simply, a "Face Job."
And it is, essentially, all about the age-old Chinese concept of face. To have a few foreigners hanging around means a company has prestige, money and the increasingly crucial connections -- real or not -- to businesses abroad.
"Face, we say in China, is more important than life itself," said Zhang Haihua, author of "Think Like Chinese." "Because Western countries are so developed, people think they are more well off, so people think that if a company can hire foreigners, it must have a lot of money and have very important connections overseas. So when they really want to impress someone, they may roll out a foreigner."
Or rent one.

They prolly like the English look, which i really cant pull off since im only a 1/3 any pudding. Maybe i can go there are be a powerful Irish gangbanger who is not to be fucked with.

A native bosnian at my work called my an irish gangster one night. Which sucks because hes spot on. I like to claim the german side of my german/irish/english roots.

What is your ethnic background Anemone?

Well, you'll at the very least be exotic to them -- that can't hurt your chances.

I run a company in Hong Kong that oversees the factories. I blissfully do not work for any factories. If you wanted to work here, you would need an advanced degree, typically masters or higher and/or expertise in a specific field to obtain a working visa. The easiest position to obtain is teacher, as most schools love having foreign teachers and will facilitate all paperwork and provide most of your life's needs during the time you're under employ. I'm told it pays better than what a starting teacher makes in the U.S., to boot.

This is true. I've been offered jobs based on being white since moving here.

This is not true. Being from the Middle East, for instance, is a negative. Skin color is paramount in Asia. The darker you are the lower on the totem pole. Kind of like everywhere else.

Though Asian PC parts and electronics are absolute shit. When you can find brands, not even models just the brand, sold in the States you cherish them. EVGA does not exist, here. Others do but it is often the piss-poor quality variant of goods you may have wanted. If you can even find some that fit, clothes are lower quality as they do not make them to survive dryers. Oddly, toys are MUCH higher quality.

Hardest part of living is that Asia, for reasons I have yet to obtain a satisfactory explanation of, eschews online shopping. They want to dig through little booths and pull-out bazaars. Remember the days of finding specific items and parts? It was called human history and it sucked. I needed an attachment for my dryer and had to contact someone in Australia. When he refused to export the part to me, I went to a shop and found some generic hosing cut with a scissor that I rigged up with duct tape--because that's what men do.

blackz is white.

Also, all of the black Marines I personally know that did stints in Norway found that the darker you were the higher on the totem pole you were.

Shouldn't you be abusing your kids and then bragging about it on message boards? You're off to a slow start today, Terran.

I pick up speed as the day goes on.

How's the soup? Personally, I'm partial to 보신탕 (補身湯) or 개장국 (-醬-)
