Is this a Kenwood RXD-980MD under your table? Mine still works like a charm after all these years. But I really hate the annoying noise it makes when you turn it on and the disc-changer does a full cycle just for no reason EVERY F...ING time.

This mini hifi system under the table is Kenwood RXD-750. It works very well with pretty sound. I have it almost for ten years. My RXD makes the same annoying sound when startup and disk changer rotates. Really don't know why it cycle every time but i hate it too :(

Really cool. It appears you use the Asus 32 in. at full resolution. How is it to use in practice compared to, say, 27 in. at 2560 x 1440?

The dot pitch on the PQ321Q is very small. I adapted mostly by sitting very close to the display. Before that I could not read some smaller text and I found it annoying. You want to sit really close to this display, but I have found it to be my favorite monitor now, and I have plenty to chose from.

When HDMI 2.0 gets further along, I will get an HDMI 2.0 55" set to use instead of this so I can sit further away. I am myopic, yet I prefer to wear my glasses and sit further away leaning back in my chair.

I typically use a 40" 1080p display for my computer which is not a comfortable dot pitch for many, but I love chunky pixels. I might even want a 65" 4k display for my primary when HDMI 2.0 cards are more readily available. That's still the same dot pitch a 4 32" displays at 1080p.

Bottom line: Tiny dot pitch means you need to get CLOSE to the the screen.

The Lenovo A730 core i7 is 2560x1440 and I love that little machine too. 1TB SSD makes it a very wonderful all-in-one, total cost just over $2,000. That's my second favorite setup to using the ASUS on a full-decked-out desktop. I can't recommend that system enough especially for casual gamers who want a system that's very space and heat conscious.

I love it. It's my first 1440 monitor so my basis of comparison comes from 1080 screens. I'll never go back.

Finished my Nvidia surround setup. I mostly play BF4 and I wanted the added field of view after watching some triple monitor videos on youtube!

My single GTX 780 actually seems to run BF4 alright with all high settings (textures on ultra) without AA. I was surprised. I'll probably still end up with another card though, just because I really prefer a constant 60 fps and right now I'm getting drops into the mid 40s.

what kind of monitor stand is that?

No clue, it came with the office furniture and was part of the quote.

Edit: Here ya go. http://www.steelcase.com/en/product...er/flat-panel-monitor-arm/pages/overview.aspx



Do you like the Chromecast? I was thinking of getting one.

It's pretty nice. The benefits are you don't need an additional PC to display something (and all that goes with it such as an active directory account, Google Apps Account, etc) and you can throw up a display anywhere you simply have 110volts and WiFi coverage.

Awesome setups at home and work! Out of interest, did you provide the Korean monitors at work, or did the employer? Can't imagine they'd be easy to support by the business?

Employer. Monitors are seen as disposable here, so if a $350 panel gets past it's 1yr warranty, then it's a winner in their book. That, and I'm the guinea pig for new hardware trials, so I pretty much get to try any new tech. (Thus why I'm running these off of a retina macbook pro.)

Awesome, sounds like a good employer you have. My brothers works for a large company, you don't buy monitors unless they come with the usual corporate support etc. Hence why you always see the same generic monitors.

I've thought about doing PPLPP simply because it's cheaper but PLLLP would be sweet. OP set it up and post a pic for the [H]orde.
