You know what makes me happy?



Image taken from google, lol.

Vornado 660.

Bought this on impulse, and because I was soooo sick of my huge box fan that barely pushes air and sounds obnoxiously loud.

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.

You look different in that pic.

 

I want one!

 

Edit: BTW, I spotted the part about the pic being from Google but deliberately ignored it for the purpose of making the joke. It's the first thing I thought when I saw the picture :p

If I lived in Florida, that's the first thing I would have bought. I hate sweating :mad:

My AC is constantly on around 70-71, and my huge fan was on the mid-hi at all times. If it were quieter, I'd have put it on max, but the damn thing would drown out even good speakers. The Vornado is sooooo much cooler and quieter, and if I ever get hot, I have two more stronger settings, which really move air in the room. 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.

I was looking at the Asus PA248Q, slightly less wide color gamut than the 23" you linked but it's an inch bigger and about $100 cheaper ($110 with rebate). 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.

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 :)

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.
