The PS3 display, it's even 3D. And I heard it's really good. It has a 240Hz refresh rate, 2 HDMI and 1 Component, The sound is better than other monitors, and it is a 50% discount.

 A buddy of mine brought one of those over a few weekends ago. Future Shop was blowing them out the door for $99.

Great on the PS3, text is a little blurry on the PC at it's native resolution. I also could not get any games to work in 3D, Nvidia's vision's test worked but nothing else.

 

$99 yes $250 not worth it. IMHO

Oh, then nevermind. That's why I said "I heard".

Yup!

 

The "good reviews" are kind of like the same people who like the Monster Beats.

Fair point, but I thought my e4200 was TOTL not toooo long ago, and look at it now. frown.gif

 

I will try the Asus N66 and let you know how it is, routers are cheap enough for them to be 'consumable' I guess.

I don't recommend going extra length unless you need to, or have special needs.

 

The wireless N revolution ended a while ago. They more or less offer very similar stuff.

 

There is a router site that gives you real thoroughput and performance numbers of each router but in the end, most offer close things.

You cant go wrong with an Airport

I use an Airport Extreme and yes it does perform flawlessly for me.

 

 

No problems for me.

The thing is, Apple makes amazing products, but they are a bit over-priced. Besides, they don't deserve the hate they get.

Well that is subjective really.

 

 

Off Topic: (Click to show)

 

Steve Jobs believed that EVERYONE should give back to the world. To the human race. He thus believed that the products he made were his way of giving back to the world.

 

Computers, technology stand at the intersection of modern life today and in his view, no price can be placed on them. If a consumer price was to be put down, a dreamer could never dream outside the box.

 

And thus in his view, as technology was something we used. Computers can be perfected to best suit a consumer and the professional(he didnt' care for the enthusiasts much). To him, a middle class family could easily afford $1,400 for a computer that they depended their lives on.

 

Perfection is something that we rarely see in this world today. Where the 'crazy ones' get their visions done. Where they stop at nothing to achieve what they want.

 

And this is the reason why I believe Apple still has that newboy smell. It may be the biggest company on Earth now(soon) by market cap. But they dare every single time to put out products that they envisioned. Beautiful products that 'just work' for the everyday man and professional.

 

The Enthusiast market did get some things from Apple, but in the end. It was abandoned. There are 2.3 Billion+ computerusers world wide with ONLY 54 million of those being computer enthusiasts. Thats only 2.3% market at most.

 

This video from Apple captures Steve Jobs thoughs.

I'm pretty sure you're referring to smallnetbuilder, I've been on that site for the past few hours.

 

I have a 100mbit line, so I do need good wireless performance unfortunately.

 

It's a tossup between the N66 and the AC66. I might as well go for the draft ac version as I'll also get an ac wireless adapter too. I've heard the latest firmware updates solved most people's issues, but there's still nothing definitive on it's reliability yet, so I'm leaning towards the older N66.

Too slow for me according to the benchmarks (newer routers are significantly faster), but I'm sure it's rock solid stable.

That line.

 

Ok nvm.

 

I forgot that your network surpases the 'regular' market and needs. So yeah, finding and getting the one that squeezes the most is best.

I understand that you may not like OSX or iOS or anything Apple, but you have to admit that Steve Jobs (Apple) did revolutionize the consumer market with the iPod, and the iPhone and helped to improve computers with OSX.

Okay, I'll just get the damn AC66 and just throw it away if it's not stable and purchase the older N66.

 

I hate it when I stress over two different products trying to find the 'best' one.

No. I'm an Apple fan.

 

I was adding commentary and reasons against the main thigns PC Enthusiasts complain about and why he did it.

 

We can talk in the Apple-Fi page if there needs to be.

Well let us know how it is

 

Wireless N supports up to 480Mb/s for us so its not really a problem

Yup, will do.

 

That Wireless N 480mbit thing is just like headphones saying 5hz-46khz, it's absolutely meaningless.

Yeah I've noticed

 

Variable signal strengths are what are actually done. Mine sends out 300Mb/s of course but being 20-25 feet away from my router seperated by a wall gives me a real 240Mb/s that I am variablly recieving.

 

But none the less, the transfer rate level is still and should still be higher than 100Mb/s for most parts of your house.
