  • I had that problem years ago with DxO's Optics Pro; they gave me a new activation without further questions.
  • In addition to what others have said, recent Windows versions seem to be mostly functional even if not activated. As far as I can tell from what I've read, only the Personalization functions are ...
  • "Fixed" or "FTFY" is common on Ye Olde Internet, and since original posts are preserved, and only quotes can be altered, no one will be mistake who said what. Disagree if you like, but I'm ...
  • The rtings.com review looks pretty good too, and has plenty of tech details. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/asus/proart-display-pa278qv
  • That is also my experience, IOLs and all. I did spend a bit extra to get antireflective coatings on my glasses. Same here, with a single 32" monitor. And we have a lifetime of viewing flat images ...

    You're obviously ignoring what actually happened, so I have no problem with this.

    Robert Zanatta quoted and modified your post. I quoted and modified his post.  Anyone can look back and view the chain of events.
  • Replied in Or not
    I take it you failed to notice that those original comments are undisturbed--that's entirely my post. So, no, I did not edit anyone's post.
  • Refixed. :-) (and anticipating a further refix to "planet", etc.)
  • What that implies is that there is only one proper viewing distance/seating position, depending entirely on the curvature of the monitor. Hence, the variable-curvature OLED monitor previously ...
  • I've seen a 65" TCL 8K for even less, https://www.bestbuy.com/site/tcl-65-class-6-series-mini-led-qled-8k-uhd-smart-roku-tv/6470280.p?skuId=6470280 but as you say it's much too big (unless I ...
  • Me too. It hasn't been released yet, and may not be for a while. But that's OK, I'm pleased with my current LG, I'd mainly like to try a higher-res without spending the huge $ for Dell 8K, which ...
  • Unless I see some disqualifying misfeature in reviews, I'm thinking that Dell U3224KB is likely to be my next monitor; the feature set as described is impressive.
  • If the end result is a flat print, I'd consider it an error, but for monitor viewing it would be interesting to have a curved ultrawide to view panoramas; if the user's seating position was at the ...
  • I got that impression too. :-)
  • Very nice! Looks versatile indeed. I've got a couple of NZXT Phantom 820s; old, but nearly perfect for my needs.
  • As best I recall, a member named Chris Noble has one and loves it. Look for his posts.
  • I'll buy a curved monitor when everyone starts hanging curved paintings and photos on their walls. ;-) And there's always the question, how much curve is the best? The answer may begin with this ...
  • I'm pretty sure there are still large cases available. I agree, big cases are easier to build in and work on later. It's also good to know that there's plenty of room for large graphics cards, ...
  • I've got a Radio Shack 'smart strip', where one outlet controls the on/off of several others. That thing is somewhere between 15 and 20 years old, and still works; I tested it recently. Amazing.
