I literally have the fan aimed at a corner of the room, and feel the air as if the ac was coming from that corner of the room.

I need one because summer is on its way and I'm fat.

That's awesome. Time to add it to the slickdeals alerts with summer coming up.

However... what I came around to deciding is that 4k displays are going to get more affordable soon, models with NVIDIA G-Sync will come out, and IPS will continue maturing. I do want a monitor NOW, but I decided to go with the more modest Asus VS239H-P that only costs $160, and I can turn sideways to use as a second monitor once either a must-have new tech display comes out that my GTX660 can make good use with, or once I have clients/need for a professional 27" 4k monitor (which I'll probably want a new graphics card to drive). The VS239H-P ought to be very good with my PS4 and PC.

Its great. At first I had it aimed at the ceiling directly over my bed, but damn... it was like a draft...

I recommend aiming at at a wall near you.

It literally sends out an air beam, so you DONT want it aimed directly at you, lol.

For the purpose of one-upmanship I may have to order one of these.

Satisfies me for now, but those really in-depth reviews are a great resource

Did I tell you about how you can type faster with a PS4 controller than the other consoles?

I have a similar theory about pessimists... they just believe things can be better. Also a great line in Muse's "Hoodoo" where they say I've had recurring nightmares/ where I was loved for who I am/ lost the opportunity to be a better man...

Thanks, that's the plan :)

Vornado 660.

Bought this on impulse

This fan quite literally pushes so much air, its second lowest setting can be felt in the entire room, and is really quiet for a fan. The two highest settings sound like a normal fan, but the entire room is circulating air like the AC is on at all times. I'm
blown away by how good it is.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to actively do my homework on good fans. I don't think I'll ever sweat again in my room.

LOL

Jeez, you're even optimistic about pessimists!  Your kind sicken me.  :angry_face:

 

Hardware with G-sync is supposed to be available this year. What makes you (not Ev specifically) think it needs time to mature?  Is it because there will be software issues?  I'd think the Nvidia drivers would take care of that.

The problem with my post is it makes me sound like someone that is striving to be a better person. In reality it's a lie, I just want better stuff lol.

DEKITA!

MMMMMM, DAT COMFORT.

Clearer, less bassy, and more balanced than the quite warm HS-15. I think we have a winner.

When I get it, I'll let you know what I think.

Oh I know it was later this year. Right now you can only get it as a mod for one of the Asus monitors, but "mature" would be less expensive and built-in smily_headphones1.gif the Asus ROG monitor looks like it'll be nice, but I'm not gonna spend $800 on a monitor wink.gif

Rather spend it on an awesome DAC/amp wink.gif

"More balanced." I read that as still not balanced, but more so than the closed version. It probably still has its curves.

I know. Its not normal, but these ARE old, lol. Sones are known for being bright aggressive and super bassy. The 15 was warm, non fatiguing, though bassy. The 15g is still on the bassy side, but fast bass, more neutral in tone, and still a little peaky in the treble. Still as far as Sones go, this is my favorite in terms of balance.

A lot less fatiguing and glaring than the Pro 900 and 2900. The HS15 isn't fatiguing in the least.

The 15g would compare well to the PX100-ii, being clearer and more spacious. The pX100-ii has a wall of sound in comparison.

Good I was getting worried that Ultrasone started producing good headphones for reasonable prices.
Phew, no apocalypse then wink.gif
Also, glad you're liking them ^_^

Might as well hand that over when the AKGs arrive... :wink_face:
