On the topic of displays, this will probably be my new monitor once its more widely available, seems like one of the best monitors to come out in a damn long time, love me the VA black levels, tftcentral tested a 4845:1 contrast which is crazy.

On the topic of TVs, the Sony "W" series from 2013 is the current best tv from a gaming standpoint as far as I know, with a recorded input lag of 14.6ms/6ms or so, which is sub 1 frame and pretty damn amazing for a TV. Also, it has proper 4:4:4 chroma support

 

here is one review of the 42 inch model - http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/sony-kdl42w653-201308113237.htm and a little preview from the results

Input lag (high-speed camera) 6ms compared to lag-free CRT in [Game] mode
Leo Bodnar input lag tester 15ms in [Game] mode
Full 4:4:4 reproduction (PC) Yes, in [Game] and [Graphics] modes

 

 

I'll prob be picking up the 42 inch model at some point since my friend works at best buy and can get me one for 700 after taxes so not to bad imo.

 

It uses a VA type panel as well, which is pretty much unrivaled for black levels in my opinion.

So I rented CoD:Ghosts for the PS3 (wanted to test it before I bought it on the PS4 next week).

I probably won't be buying the game after all. I just don't like the maps. They seem to be getting bigger, and more congested every year. Sometimes simplicity is best. Now it's trying to be a half assed Battlefield. Leave the big maps to Battlefield, geez. I like CoD for it's fast paced matches. Now everything has slowed down...again.

One good thing that came out of this game is that positional cues seem to be back to a good place. Even in the campaign (almost finished), I hear some distinct positional cues with the MA900. CoD's campaigns have been mostly terrible for audio cues, so this was a surprise.

I'm probably gonna pick up Killzone on the PS4 as my first next gen experience. I downloaded a high res, lightly compressed video of it running at 60fps, and I was amazed at how tight it looks and seems to play. Never been a KZ fan (I only played KZ2, and didn't care for it much), but with the multiplayer now running at 60fps, I might just start being one. I can't take online shooters seriously unless they run at 60fps.

Kind of off-topic, but do you think there will be any good deals for the PS4 during Black Friday? I kind of doubt it considering it will be released 2 weeks before...

Definitely not.
post #17842 of 26353
All black friday deals will be for current gen I would believe

Yeah, that'd be my guess. I think at the most, you MIGHT find some games bundled with the purchase of the systems... assuming you can even get the systems without pre-orders. Not sure, as I tend to buy my all my stuff online with release date delivery (Amazon is my financial kryptonite).
post #17844 of 26353
Yeah, good point. Ah well, I'll wait until more games are released.

I was considering cancelling my pre-order for the PS4, but sooner or later, I will still have it. May as well have it now.
post #17846 of 26353
I canceled mine because I dont need any distractions during finals.

It hurt, but I'll get one eventually.

I linked the FlatpanelsHD review on the last page.

 

A friend of mine told me about that monitor a few days ago, and the fact that it's a 120 Hz (effective input refresh rate, not counting the black frame insertion) LCD that's VA, or any non-TN panel type for that matter, is really promising. The only thing that still irritates me is the 1920x1080 resolution, but it's most likely one enforced by current display interfaces.

 

As for that TV model, it appears to be a UK-specific model, and there is no way I'm getting reamed on the exchange rate and other importing-related costs just to get one delivered to the US. The closest I can find is the KDL-47W802A, which is already over $1,000 bought new. Way too rich for my blood, and there's no 42" model on offer here in the States.

I thought the US should have a 42" model for the the W65x series? It's currently the very best bang-for-the-buck gamers HDTV one can get right now.

Every other region and country has the 42" model, kind of odd the US doesn't?

 

I'd stay away from the W802 though, poor blacks... though very much expected from an IPS panel.

Hey guys,

 

Been recently made aware of this thread. It's immense and I appreciate the effort everyone has put into this.

 

I would like to clarify something. 

 

 

I play games on a laptop and generally listen to music a lot more. I've been beginning to think about purchasing an ATH-AD700/AD700x. I see that Mad Lust uses the Mixamp, however that little box doesn't put out surround sound when connected through USB. My laptop doesn't have an optical out, only HDMI. Which the Astro doesn't support.

 

Does this mean I am pretty much stuck with the Creative Sound Blaster Recon 3D?

 

Thanks for any help!
