Given how much we rely on PCs now for everything from employment to entertainment, it’s worth it to spend a bit of time finding the right display for your desktop computer. This is especially important if you do a lot of gaming and streaming, as even the best processor or graphics card will be held back when connected to a sub-par display that’s prone to stuttering and screen-tearing. These things can get expensive real quickly, though, so whether you’re building or buying a new desktop computer or you’re just upgrading an existing battlestation, the monitor is one item on which you can save a lot of cash if you know what to look for — and how to find the right deal. … [Read more...] about The best desktop monitor deals for February 2020

The Lytro Illum may seem like a cool-looking, cutting-edge camera, but blow away all the smoke, and you’re left with a $1,600 4-megapixel mega-zoom that doesn’t even record movies. We’re not buying into it, as the system currently stands: it is not intuitive, has a steep learning curve, and the end results aren’t great.
