For some reason I keep seeing Lara Croft from the last Tomb Raider as the game, but it being just climbing montains and then getting to a safe spot. building a fire, and sleeping til the next day and then repeat.

Steep beta was fun, you can snowboard, ski, parachute, and wingsuit. I don't think it's worth the price tag though.

I never played Crash a whole lot but I did play Donald Duck Going Quackers and I miss it. I also feel like the only owner of a PS4 out of all the thousands of people across the forums that I frequent.

I think it might be something on my machine, but I dunno. I managed to play it for 1 hour, then got stuck, restarted, and ever since it's unplayable.

Very happy with my new monitor. Super immersive and makes running games etc look like a portrait. Good value too, only 219 €. Just a bit strange getting used to the vibrance (especially proper grays) after having looked at washed out colors for so long

That is quite pricey for that monitor. I just bought a family member a 24" IPS display for Christmas and it's $99 after the rebate. Might be cheaper to just have someone in the US buy it for you and ship it over.

It might be cheaper... Until you include shipping fees and the dreaded VAT for imports into the EU. Oh... Not to mention they have different voltage requirements than the US. It's the thought that counts

I bought a 55" 4k TV for Black Friday. Can definitely notice an improvement, even if it is just upscaling 1080p content.

How does IPS compare to LED-LCD?

That's not really a proper comparison. When talking about computer monitors LCD means the screen is using small crystals that can change opacity to display colors, LED means there's a power-efficient LED backlight and IPS is a screen technology for LCD.

The two main types are In-plane Switching (IPS) and Twisted Nematic (TN). The short version is that TN has the shortest response time which makes it best for gaming, with LED backlight is more power efficient, and they're much cheaper. The drawback is that the colors start distorting at small viewing angles, so for the best result you have to sit straight in front of the panel and people sitting next to you tend to have difficulty seeing the whole screen properly. IPS has better color display and great viewing angles, but has more trouble with response time and good contrast, though nowadays the high-end models don't have much trouble with it.

Anyway, I'm glad you found a quality IPS screen, Finz. I remember using an old CRT TV for my Xbox 360 until I shelled out for a 24" Iiyama 1080p screen seven years ago. Going from 520p to 1080p made a world of difference. I'm using two TN-panel monitors now, so my next upgrade will at least have better screen technology.

Same here, but how the hell does a 360 work on a CRT 4:3?

The 360 came with a composite cable for standard definition output, and our old CRT televisions have standardized SCART connectors. So you simply have to use a composite to SCART piece, which were really common back then. Nowadays most stuff is digital, and I wonder if you could hook a Xbone/PS4 up through SCART.

Yeap, this one has a 7ms response time but it doesn't really bother me. I was also considering a 144hz 1ms monitor for gaming, but it looked butt ugly in comparison and I'd rather go with image quality all the way. Plus, I doubt my PC runs many things smoothly enough for 144hz gaming anyways

Nope. My old monitor was a 24' Samsung TV. This one simply has better color space/contrast. I can tell it as easily as by looking at my signature picture's background, which clearly shows as a different color on this monitor, while it is the same gray as the background on my old one. (need to change that ) I use my laptop as a secondary monitor also.

As for pricing, I thought it was a good deal, probably loads of things cheaper overall in the US. Pretty much whatever I buy I find a better deal on amazon but yeah, shipping costs add a lot indeed.
