Its just a critic of your review. Just not sure if I should just post it for all to see or just PM you, or just shutup and mind my own business. HWC is the judge after all and I don’t like being critical of peoples work.
Is the purpose of posting these trial reviews online here for the members to enjoy the review of equipment, or for us to review the review so to speak?
Instead of beating around the bush so to speak...just PM me so we can get this straightened out.
All in all, I don't think it is in people's best interest to be too harsh on member reviews. You can ask questions but you have to remember that these are not professional reviews but rather reviews from the community.
A subjective review such as this is very difficult to pull off. While there are some clear cut, "This is good" "This is bad" points, everyone's opinion on exactly what is good and bad is different depending on what suits them. Accessories and peripherals, aren't like video cards or CPU's where you can say "See, this is faster than this, so it is better". You showed the different aspects of the product, and then allowed the reader to make there own assumptions - good stuff!
I enjoyed how you stepped out of the box and showed aspects of this product that people likely aren't going to encounter until they own in, then they are stuck scratching their heads, or realizing it was a bad purchase. Things such as the LCD positioning :)
The only thing I could see that would have been an interesting additive to the review, and potentially a necessary part of the review if it was for a mass public audience, would be comparisons with different types of video cards and what kinds of frames rates were achieved in games and things such as 3Dmark. An investigation of sorts as to exactly how powerful a video card would be required to use this and still maintain playable frames in things such as Crysis or Oblivion.
Otherwise in the words of Bill and Ted - "Most Excellent"
@ FiXT: Thanks for the compliments! Very kind of you to say! I regards to the benchmarking results, I was planning on testing the performance impact of three 22'' monitors vs one but I had thought (at the time) that was I getting too close to the deadline and wouldn't have had enough time to complete such a section. Now that the deadline has been extended, I'm considering writing a second section to the review to be posted before the 15th that will address this issue as well as what "minimum" graphics card would be required to properly play most games. Then again, the highest-end video cards right now start to "chug" on such games as Crysis on a single 24''-26'' monitor. So asking more than twice the pixels from the same graphics card is definitely a strain. I unfortunately don't have many video cards in my posession in order to test just what the minimum required graphics horsepower would be. Sufficed to say, you'll need more than just a $150 video card if you plan on running three screens with decent framerates.
@ Infiniti: I'm glad you're considering it as opposed to a 30'' monitor. From my own experience seeing and using 30'' monitors, I find it all the extra vertical pixels to be more annoying than anything. Having to squint to see fine details and look to the top or bottom of my screen to see everything is more of a nuissance to me. But with three widescreen displays, those problems aren't present at all. I'm glad you found the review helpful!
