Even 100 I find it too expensive. Wooden chair more than enough. Serves its purpose. Why pay for branding?

ive always wondered, is 500dollars worth for chairs?

i mean ikea regular office chair is ard 100 i think its pretty comfortable. are those gaming chairs really feel more extraordinary?

never had the chance to try one.
Well, the price and its worth is up to individuals's perception. For me, I think it is rather expensive.
You can wait for exhibition to try out their chair else I believe their showroom also available for testing.

Even 100 I find it too expensive. Wooden chair more than enough. Serves its purpose. Why pay for branding?
Although it is cooler(as in temperature) to sit on a wooden chair but i don't think you can recline or adjust height
I perceive such chairs as paying for the bigger recline angle and longer lasting skin(they claimed so..lol)


Anyway.. Let's get back on thread?

Personal view, is if i were to choose 32" 720p TV against PRISM+ 31.5" 1080p Monitor, this would be the better choice, since PS4 and XBone all runs at 900p/1080p now.

This monitor seems to be good to use for console or couch gaming (with controller connected to the PC).

True, i would say its good for console since normally you would sit quite far away from the screen. But even so 144hz is overkill for consoles.

but as a main monitor there might be an issue, i have a 27" 1080p monitor as my main for now, even though playing games and watching movies have no issues, but when im doing my work, the text will seem blurry, so im pretty sure the 32" would be worse.

yup, tbh anything at 16:9 bigger than 27" makes it hard to look at.
not talking about resolution, just the sheer size. anything bigger than 27" should go for 21:9 liao for more immersive feel

This article seems interesting to your case....

https://pcmonitors.info/articles/256...s-1920-x-1080/

I'm using 1920 x 1080 on a 23" Ultrasharp and I can imagine that the loss in ppi may contribute to your blurriness... but perhaps there is also something related to your font smoothing or such....

Anyway I'm a newb (noob too) with displays but makes sense that the higher the PPI, the better and smoother the display. That's how I ended up looking for 34" with 3440 x 1440 resolution for work and play.... and the function to change it to a higher refresh with lower res for gaming makes total sense.

Agree with you that if main use for the 31.5" is for text and work it will be not so good vs gaming. Probably TS might want to go smaller but with higher res?

Anyway the product makes total sense coming from Aftershock
