Doug wants a monitor that won't give him eye strain. What about BenQ? Leo says that they've been around a long time and are very good. They have a monitor that has low blue light and reduces flicker. Any monitor with a high refresh rate will help with eye strain, though. So he doesn't have to limit his choices to one. He should just shop for that feature.
Eric's mouse is taking a long time to move across his new monitor. Leo says that a higher resolution monitor means he is going across more dots. He should turn up his mouse sensitivity and select 'Acceleration' and that will make it move faster.
Adonis wants to know how to best clean his computer monitor. Leo says he'll want to be sure to avoid alchol based cleaners, because they could strip the sensitive coating. Leo recommends KlearScreen. A damp microfiber cloth will also work just fine.
Brett is looking at a ViewSonic 28" LCD monitor. Leo says that ViewSonic makes a very good monitor. Leo recommends comparing that monitor with Dell. They even have a 31" curved monitor that's gorgeous. And their pricing is very aggressive. LG also makes excellent monitors, as does ASUS. Their 4K monitor is spectacular.
George bought a cheap LCD monitor and he has trouble seeing it from an angle. Leo says that's how cheaper monitor brands save money, but using LCD screens that have poor angles of view. He can see, but the angle gets pretty dim. Leo advises avoiding places like Fry's and go with NewEgg.
Should George get rid of it? Leo says not really. But most computers do take multiple monitors, so why not get another? If he can return it, however, maybe that's a better option.
Cheryl bought a $60 Winbook and was wondering if she could add a monitor to it. Leo says it does run a Micro HDMI cable, so she could add a monitor. But most have either VGA or DVI. Can she convert it? Or get a USB monitor? Leo says that she could use a USB driven monitor, and they're cheap. But they are mostly used as a second monitor. A DVI converter is a better idea.
Alan has a desktop with multiple 27" screens. He as an iPad and an Asus tablet. Is there anyway he can connect to the screens wirelessly so he can see contents of the tablet on the screen? Leo says there's the ability to do it the other way, but not back. The Chatroom says to check out Splashtop.
Adam is creating an art exhibit, and he wants to do video installations with three video screens per computer. He's looking for a wireless solution. Leo says that a wireless solution with three different video screens would be a real challenge. Wired is going to be the better method here.
Gary likes to play with Raspberry Pi computers and would like to get the smallest UltraHD screen he can for the sleeper in his truck. Leo says that's a great project for a trucker to play with. Leo says that the Raspberry Pi computers are great and for $35, they're dirt cheap and great for the hobbyist.
Roger's LCD monitor is "flashing" after about a minute and then settles down and works again. Leo says that it may be a bad cable, which would be an easy fix. But it's more likely that the monitor is aging and the transformer or power supply is starting to fail, requiring it to "warm up" before use. It's not really worth fixing. Monitors are so cheap now, Roger should probably just get a new one.
