  • That's interesting and surprising - I'd have hoped that given that the U2713's pixel pitch was only 6% smaller than my 22" 1080p work panels (B2280HS's), there wouldn't have been much difference.  ...
  • Apple displays are of a high quality - I won't disagree with you.  However, I dislike glossy displays (one of my colleagues has an iMac, and it's highly reflection-prone - where it's going at home ...
  • Thanks, but I'm not really interested in 4K displays.  I'm sure it's a very nice panel (all the reviews seem to indicate so), but I'm not sure Windows and apps are written to support it properly ...
  • Replied in MacPro vs PC
    Indeed.  When I first saw the specs and price of the new Mac Pro, I thought it was over-priced, did some adding up, and found that it was actually reasonable.  Can't say I'd ever have one, but ...
  • Hi guys, I mostly use my PC for image editing (I’ll be switching to Lightroom from Capture NX), and occasional gaming. I’ve currently got a 20” 1680x1050 monitor, which I’m finding a little ...
  • Hi Mike, It looks like a solid starting-point, but as others have said, the components might be 1 revision behind the current one (i.e. 87-series chipset rather than 97-series, i7-4770 rather than ...

  • Hi guys, Thanks for the responses. :) Sorry for the delay in replying, but work got in the way and I had an idea I wanted to try first ... I managed to try Lightroom (via the free trial on a VM ...
  • Hi guys, Given that Nikon are discontinuing support for Capture NX, and Capture NX-D doesn't have the same level of functionality, I'm looking at moving over to Lightroom. Does anyone know how ...
  • I know you're (hopefully) not looking at a new PC now, but for reference, whilst you might get a reasonable system from the likes of Dell, PC World for not much money, you may find it limited in ...
  • Nope. I have an 8-year old XP machine, a 6-year old XP machine, and a 3-year old Windows 7 machine - all on their original Windows install, and none of them have ground to a halt, or, infact, got ...
  • If you look at it "under the hood", Windows 8 is generally a better operating system than Windows 7. The main complaints about Windows 8 relate to user interface "oddities", e.g. searching from the ...
