What's been going on?

Hello Readers,

Sorry for not making any posts for the last 2 months. My personal life has been very busy, and I have simply not been able to write. My affiliation with Google's AdSense program is now over, which I will not cover in detail. In the next month or so, you will see an i5 3570k build.

Enjoy your summer!

LG IPS235v Review

Hello Readers,

Today I will be talking about my new monitor, as a follow up to my last article about bigger monitors giving higher productivity. This review will be very basic. Some of the specifications of this HD 23 inch IPS LED monitor include: 1 VGA port, 1 HDMI port, and 1 DVI port. I appreciated the convenient input switcher built-into my monitor.

The Good:
High quality stand
Amazing Color
IPS panel for less
Feels bigger than 23 inches
Sufficient connectors

The Bad:
5 second start up time
8ms response time (Doesn't show in games)
Brightness may need some lowering

I recommend this monitor for anyone who needs high color accuracy, a good resolution, and has a budget.

I've been busy with school and trying to get into a good college. Pictures will come, but don't expect them for a while.

Bigger Monitors= Higher Productivity

Hello Readers,

Today, I noticed my monitor was beginning to fail, it does things like artifact (doesn't happen on other monitors, definitely not a hardware problem). It's a tiny 18.5" Dell monitor that I picked up in 2007 for $99.99. I feel like editing this HTML  to bring you guys a better reading experience is coming with a toll to my eyes. I did some research, and found that bigger monitors yeild higher producitivity. Check out this statistic from the University of Utah.

"Researchers at the University of Utah tested how quickly people performed tasks like editing a document and copying numbers between spreadsheets while using three different computer configurations:
  1. single 18-inch monitor
  2. single 24-inch monitor
  3. two 20-inch monitors
Here's what they found:
  • People using the 24-inch screen completed the tasks 52% faster than people who used the 18-inch monitor
  • People who used the two 20-inch monitors were 44% faster than those with the 18-inch ones.
  • Productivity dropped off again when people used a 26-inch screen."
I do believe getting a 24 inch monitor may be a better choice for my optical health. I am spending more time on my computer now that I run this site.

Have you had any similar experiences?
