  • I am in the UK but just in case it is important to you I would check on NEC's dead pixel policy where you are. I have very recently had discussions with one of NEC's UK distributors about the ...
  • Hi Jim, I am in the UK and a very quick search on Amazon produced the following. No, I was not thinking of the Eizo EV2336. With todays £UK to $US exchange rate being 1.51380, $ to £, the ...

  • Hi larry, As a photographer I use predominately Nikon cameras and lenses as well as quite a few Sigma lenses. Because I almost always shoot in RAW the software that I tend to use most is good old ...
  • Hi larry, I looked at lots of alternative system configurations before deciding on the 5820K. Most of the software I use utilises the multiple cores of a cpu. I seriously considered the 4790K route ...
  • Hi Pictus, Thanks for that input. As far as glasses go, I have tried varifocal@s but keep falling over when wearing them. I just cannot get on with them, so I have glasses all over the place. A ...
  • Hi PIctus, I appreciate your input, thank you. After some further research and more discussions with my preferred supplier, they have come up with an alternative to the NEC EA244WMi that they can ...
