    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    That seems an easy regime to follow - so all should be well. BTW - just ordered the Hero Black - looking forward to trying it out! Cheers :)

    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    Thanks for the tips Grim5 :) I am fine with all of those except I may have a problem with the temperature; in the summer the room is in full sunlight all afternoon. Even with venetian and sun blinds lowered, the room can easily reach 35+ degrees C (yes in the UK! - sometimes anyway). I do quit...

    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    Nope - I'm being a muppet. Just found some prices I'd scribbled down over the weekend. The Black edition was not on sale at all - doh. It would cost about £105 more than the regular Hero Black (which is on sale at the moment). Hmm - may be worth waiting to see if the black edition goes on sale...

    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    Typical - my timing sucks. Just went to order the Hero Black Edition and found that the sale for it had ended. Talked with a very helpful staff member (Oliver - who gave me absolutely loads of details when I phoned a couple of days ago - top marks!) but unfortunately nowt could be done. Will...

    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    Thank you for your helpful reply - much appreciated. It's really good news about the PU - I realise mileage may vary, but 4 years seems pretty fair to me! I too prefer a firm chair but was somewhat concerned about the common complaints about the chair's seat. I am one of those people who...

    Question for owners of Noble Hero chairs re PU longevity

    Hi all I am considering getting a Noble Hero Black (not the Black Edition with the new PU) and would be grateful if you would share your experience with how long the regular PU lasted before it started looking worse for wear. Also would be handy to know how long it took for the reportedly...

    Please jog my memory about RAM upgrades...

    ... no pun intended. I was thinking of upgrading my PC from 8Gb to 16Gb. Typically though - adding another 8 gb isn't as straightforward as it should be. Awhile ago I upgraded from a gtx560ti to a gtx970 graphics card. This resulted in the BIOS screen sitting there for a minute before the...

    Sumvision Cyclone Voyager 10.1"

    Hi again Went for the Ployer Momo 12 last week from Fleabay as the unit has a good rep for screen quality and general build. But I seem to have been sold a clone - no manufacturer or SN details on the back :( However was very impressed with it anyway ........ until I discovered a couple of...

    Sumvision Cyclone Voyager 10.1"

    Think I may go for this - have had webnote confirmation that it is def the bluetooth version on sale. Quick query to owners - how bright and crisp is the screen? There are so many tablets with this internal chipset I think the screen may be the deciding factor (after reliablity and battery life...

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Thanks for posting your settings ancient - much appreciated. Will use them on my next Asus - this one is going back - it's now got a bright vertical stripe as well as the oval - aargh! MarkA - if my 2nd one doesn't work out I'll be looking for another 27" too - not sure what though... really do...

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Thanks ancient :) Sounds as if I was unlucky with the batch mine came from. Out of interest would you mind posting your settings if you have time? I have played around a lot with my settings but having just come from a CRT, I wouldn't be surprised if I'd gone about things completely the wrong way!

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Coolasmoo - do you recall how long your screen took to clear up? MarkA - movies are unwatchable on mine too - in game it is distracting.... no change since Friday :( - I guess this is your second monitor? Was the first one returned for the same reason? If mine doesn't improve by tomorrow...

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Will give it a go! I know I have 7 days on the DSR - will have to check how long I can have for a replace-as-faulty scenario (was a rainforest purchase). The monitor was perfect oN Wed & Thurs then the oval appeared on Friday. I noticed it watching a film with dark scenes. Now I can even just...

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Rich - that sounds promising - the bleed seemed endemic to the model (naturally most stuff out there was about problems), so your experience is good news. Diagro - don't have my own pic yet - on top of everything else am starting a new job tomorrow so am running around like a headless chicken...

    ASUS VG278H Oval Backlight Bleed

    Hi All Anyone had any experience of this? Got the monitor on Wednesday - all was pretty good - 3d Ir worked, no dead pixels and I liked the 2d and 3d picture. Then, after about 3 days use, a horrendous oval backlight bleed started. I found references to this exact problem (including the...

    HDMI 1.4 query

    Went back to the Asus uk web site and found the info below in the Overview section (I was looking at the Specification section earlier and couldn't see any diff in the HDMI spec). My bolding of text... For the VG278H: Extensive Connectivity Display stereoscopic 3D via Blu-ray Disc players or...

    HDMI 1.4 query

    I am currently comparing the Asus VG278HE and the older Asus VG278H. The Asus website gives the same HDMI specs for both i.e. 1.4. I had thought that 1.4a was required for 3d over HDMI? - looking to just plug a 3d Bluray player into the monitor - as well as a PC into the dual DVI of course :)...

    ASUS VG278HE vs VG278H 27

    Hi all Was wondering if anyone has experience of using both of these and can share a comparison? I was thinking of getting the HE as it is cheaper - then getting the 3d vision 2 kit later. I know this is more expensive overall but it is more affordable as a 2 bite chunk. I thought that...

    Creating an image of an SSD

    Thanks all - will look at those options. I like the sound macrium reflect - didn't realise they had a free version :) I know from use of an earlier version that Acronis is good (though 2011 seems to have issues) but am reluctant to pay much as I only ever use a little of the functionality...
