  • What do I look for?
  • Solid build quality (no crackling noises to suggest electrical issues).
  • Dead pixel guarantee with RMA support
  • VA or IPS panel
  • Strong color accuracy out of the box and full coverage for sRGB and Adobe RGB (DCI-P3 is nice as well, but not a big priority for me)
  • A height-adjustable stand. I will not buy a tilt-only monitor, unless maybe everything else is perfect for me, the price is very aggressive, and the monitor has a VESA adapter.
  • Refresh rate?
  • 100Hz or better (I don't really care about anything above 144Hz due to the current premiums)
  • Response times 5ms or lower. 1ms isn't a hard requirement for me.
  • Freesync 2 is a must. G-Sync compatibility is nice as well, if verified and guaranteed. I wouldn't pay extra for actual G-Sync built-in.
  • Curved screen?
  • Yes. Very much yes.
  • Ultrawide?
  • Yes. Even more so than a curve. I'll only buy monitors 21:9 and up. For me, this means the existing Vast has been of great interest. 32:9 would be my ideal, though pricing is problematic. The Samsung CHG90 is the only such monitor I would consider (simply based upon price), but I would prefer the increased pixel density of newer models, which tend to have a 1440p vertical resolution.
  • Note: If we take the CHG90 as an example, I would happy to sacrifice the USB hub, HDR400 support, and fancy modes like picture-by-picture, all in exchange for 1440p vertical resolution and a reduced price (relative to newer 32:9 1440 monitors). I even wouldn't mind dropping down to a 100Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time. This is because i really want the immersive qualities of something this wide as well as the multitasking capabilities provided. Still, 21:9 is still perfectly fine.
  • Preferred brands? Samsung, LG, Asus, Dell - in no particular order.

Want: 27 Inch 1440p 144hz+ Monitor w/ USB-C PD + KVM
With many of us working from home and gaming in the same space, I've grown to love my setup that allows me to switch between my work machine and gaming PC on the same display, keyboard, and mouse with the Viewsonic VP2771. The only problem is -- that display is only 60hz. So, I'm in the market for a new work + gaming monitor with this criteria below and found them pretty difficult to find: Features Wanted 27 Inches 1440p resolution for QHD gaming 144hz+ refresh rate w/ FreeSync or G-SYNC USB-C PD input for use with notebooks (specifically MacBooks) DP + HDMI ports for other sources 2+ USB ports for peripherals + USB-B output to PC Built-in KVM switch between USB-C and USB-B VESA mountable There's exactly 1 solid and affordable option: the Gigabyte M27Q, but I'm not impressed with the overall quality in reviews. The Eve Spectrum is on its way this spring it looks like, going above and beyond these features with a 240hz option and many of the same features, coming out of a...

Gerlach Watches
Hey everyone I hope your week is going well. I was wondering if anyone in the community has experience with Gerlach watches? I would love to see a few of their line show here on Drop some day. I know they wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but they are unique in that I don't believe I have seen any Polish made watches here before. Well, I don't know that I have seen Polish watches anywhere LOL! thoughts?

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now, at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
