Yesterday: rechargeable AAA batteries

Today: non-rechargeable AAA batteries


Who thought selling the same type of batteries with different voltages is a good idea?

Shouldn't the EU regulate this shit? >:v

Acer G257HU smidpx monitor - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QS0AKVK

 

It's a 1440p 60 Hz IPS display that costs $240. Here are my initial thoughts:

  • Viewing angles are great.
  • DisplayPort support is nice. I wish everything supported DisplayPort.
  • For some reason, there's a setting called "OD" (overdrive?) on which is supposed to reduce ghosting, but I found it actually increases it. Turn it off.
  • The speakers are tinny. They're okay in a pinch, but you should consider plugging your own speakers in.
  • Does not overclock. It skips even when running at the supported 1024x768 @ 75 Hz, so it's likely running at 60 Hz regardless.
  • You can't mount it apparently.
  • The stand sucks, but it's manageable.
  • One of the pixels was stuck when I took it out of the box. After tapping it, it stopped being stuck. The problem hasn't occurred since.

 

Otherwise I like it.

So at work there was a huge box of self tapping drywall screws that I stole.

 

Probably the handiest thing on my work truck.

 

So in essence, I would.
