I'd love to use your link to buy the viewsonic to try out but I'm already stuck with this asus one because corona hit right after I purchased it and everything else was completely out of stock. I couldn't even return it because there was nothing else to buy haha.

I am kinda thinking I will buy the new lgC10 42" oled for a computer screen if it's at the right price and it has low input lag. Competitive games will still be on my ASUS but I see no reason the oled can't work well as an RPG / Movie monitor as long as it's image retention isn't too bad. It's going to have BFI and Gsync I hear.

I don't mind ads - and personally, I think that clicking on them is how one should tip websites that you like. Google does a decent job of showing relevant ads, so it's really not an imposition.

If you wish -- you can use this link for anything searchable on Amazon: Link to Amazon. That will commission a tiny portion of the revenues of the whole shopping cart to Blur Busters, assuming you don't enter Amazon via any other means (manually typing, or via Google, or via another site). The monitor lists are commissioned for those who wishes to support Blur Busters.

I would donate to a blur busters patreon. A token forum feature upgrade would be a nice gesture, but I wouldn't consider it necessary. It's tough to balance serving everyone (keeping content accessible and not behind a paywall) and providing incentive for people to donate other than a desire to support your mission.

Update: Minor ad malfunctions. Already aware of them, will be fixed in coming days.

I have no plans for media paywalls as that is against the philosophy of Blur Busters.

Blur Busters is 50% media site and 50% display laboratory (services.blurbusters.com), Blur Busters is focussed on pushing the needle on all temporal aspects of displays (refresh rates, GtG, MPRT, strobing, frametimes, latency, motion blur, etc).

I actually was able to use the XG270 link to go ahead and buy it. I found a buyer for the asus.

I use ad blocker and disabled when I saw this thread, but you should definitely set up those banners that ask people to nicely disable ad block in order to help the site.
