The Best PC Hardware

Guidelines... Specifications, Quality, Reliability, Support, Design.

1. Company must be between top 10 World's largest manufacturers in their field (market share %). Higher position - more points.
2. Specific line of products must be in top 5 by reliability (rating). More reliable - more points.
3. Product must be popular in society. Large amount of customers, usually, guarantees, that product will be supported longer in the future.
4. Design of product must look good and pleasant and not outdated even after 100 years.
5. Price of new product, parts, repairs or upgrades should not be ~50%-100% higher, because product is better ~5-10%

It is better to buy ~90% speed available PC for 800 EUR after each 4 years, than top ~100% speed PC for 1600 EUR after each 8 years.

Try to avoid companies, which hide specifications or use dishonest advertisement and tricks to lure you into buying their products. If company has low morals in advertisement, there is more chances that their hardware is infected with the same problem.

Don't forget to check, if manufacturer released new and improved product. For safe shopping and low prices, you can check stores, recommended by manufacturer, and big retailers, like Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.es, Dabs.com or Scan.co.uk. If you buy from eBay, make sure, that seller ratings are the highest possible. Seller should have at least 100 positive reviews and items must be insured with PayPal.com warranty.

3D Quality

Before buying 3D (TV or PC) display, make sure it can read and show Full HD 3D without downgrading resolution in any stage ...from original source to displaying on screen. Some even big manufacturers mislead people, that their displays are Full HD 3D, when in reality they are Full HD 2D / Half HD 3D.

2D Monitor

Perfect monitor should cover maximum area of your field of vision in order to acquire full immerse effect. Eye can extend field of vision by moving its fixation point 60° up, 75° down, 60° towards the nose, and 110° away from the nose. Basically, perfect aspect ratio would be 220°:135° ~= 1.63 ~= 16:10 Any monitor, which is not 16:10, will not cover your field of view evenly or display data outside of your field of view - which is not only waste of space and money, but waste of any content, placed there by the media creators. 21:9 aspect ratio monitors are marketing gimmick and waste of money. All that extra money could be invested more optimally by buying bigger 16:10 or 16:9 (perfect fit for HD television shows) monitor with higher resolution in order to improve visual quality inside focus area of human eye (60° FOV). Because you can fit optics and displays into them, which will cover full field of vision and double or triple quality/FPS by not wasting so many GPU resources on rendering objects in peripheral vision area. By using eye tracking, it would be possible to double or triple perceptual quality again with same GPU resources, because 60% of eye visual cortex is located inside just 10° FOV area (center area of the eye with highest resolution). VR helmets with wireless controllers, like HTC Vive, is the future of the gaming. 3D monitors are obsolete now. It is better to invest money in 2D monitor with high resolution and colors and then in VR helmet, than in 3D monitor. Although, 3D projectors with big screens are still relevant (2016). The main drawback of most popular VR helmets today is still slightly low screen resolution - 1080x1200 pixels per eye - you can clearly see pixels. (2016).

Some manufacturers mislead consumers by advertising 6-bit + FRC panels as "8-bit" ("16.7M colours"). Please note, that, for example, AH-IPS panels can also be 6-bit + FRC (simulated "8-bit"), 8-bit (true 8-bit), 8-bit + FRC (simulated "10-bit") or 10-bit (true 10-bit).

VorpXVorpX (2016-11-01) 40 EUR

VorpX is a 3D-driver for DirectX9-11 games that is specifically geared towards VR-devices like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Additionally to ‘making games 3D’ it offers various features to tackle many of the issues that arise when playing games on the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive that are not designed for it. Unfortunately, these old games, event if "3D Geometry" mode is available for them, are not so impressive and immersive, as new games and applications, made specifically for VR helmets. Also, you can view 3D movies with it. You must have MPC-HC player installed and optimized with vorpX. Note: if keyboard key [Delete] doesn't show menu in MPC-HC player, you can try to change it, for example, from [Delete] to [KeyPad NumLock]. VideoLAN VLC player can be used to, but it (2.2.4) degrades video resolution. Although, native VR video players, like Simple VR Video Player on Steam for HTC Vive may work better.

Cherry MX Mechanical Key Switch for Gamers and Typists

Mechanical keyboards are uncomfortable, overrated and annoyingly loud even with O-Ring switch dampeners. It is nearly impossible to use them with external microphone and voice activated chat during online gaming sessions and around other people in quiet environments – people will start to hate you for all that noise. Long key travel distance feels inferior by comparison with high quality scissor-switch chiclet keyboards, where you can pull/release trigger faster and with much less effort. Mechanical keyboard manufacturers know about this and some of them brag, how they reduced it by 25% and how faster it is now. Thin scissor-switch keyboards are twice as fast as mechanical, because key in them actuates usually at the same 2 mm distance, but release is instant. Long travel distance and no soft cushion in mechanical keyboard results in hurt fingers after longer gaming sessions, because of frequent attempts to reach button's contact point as fast as possible, which means hitting key's bottom quite hard. Playing intensive games online is not like playing some slow, peaceful and calming piano music. If you want to buy programmable mechanical keyboard "for gaming", you should try it first and can check Corsair K70 or K95. They are not comfortable as Logitech K750 or K800 keyboards.

The Corsair Gaming K70 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard begins with the performance of the legendary K70, and adds multicolor per-key backlighting for virtually unlimited customization. Every key is backed with a Cherry MX RGB key switch for precise actuation and superior feel. 104 full key rollover and 100% anti-ghosting ensure accurate gameplay.

• 100% Cherry MX Mechanical keyswitches
• 32-bit ARM Processor
• Panasonic display controller
• Up to 1000 Hz USB report rate
• Selectable 8ms, 4ms, 2ms, 1ms, and BIOS mode

WASD KyboardsCherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners (125pcs) (2014-08-01) 15 EUR

0.4mm Reduction - Blue
0.2mm Reduction - Red

"Bottoming out" is a term used to describe when a key stroke is pressed all the way down where the stem of the switch hits the inside of the switch casing. This causes a "clack" from the collision on mechanical keyboards. Switch sound dampeners are soft rubber O-rings that can be installed onto every single keycap stem to cushion the landing of the switch by stopping the key stroke just short of the point of bottoming out. This also very slightly reduces the max travel distance of the switch. (0.2-0.4mm of 4mm total travel distance. Varies by O-ring type.) This modification is popular among mechanical keyboard owners from around the world. Since most people will bottom out at least a fraction of their keystrokes, the switch sound dampeners will cut away extra noise giving your mechanical keyboard a consistent sound output while typing. The added shock absorption can also help with finger fatigue during long typing sessions. Made of industrial grade EPDM rubber which has much better resistance to cracking and tearing than nitrile or silicon rubber. Fits firmly onto the stem of your Cherry MX keycap.

Windows mouse settings...

Extra mouse buttons: Proper gaming mouse is like HOTAS Joystick, it allows you to keep left hand on movement keys (W,A,S,D,SHIFT,SPACE) at all times, while performing most basic FPS functions (shoot, aim down sight, throw grenade, melee attack, crouch, prone, draw side gun, ...). This requires more than 5 buttons. True gaming mouse must have at least same amount of action buttons as a standard gaming controller which is 14 (A, B, C, D, LS, RS, LT, RT, LB, RB, D-PAD Up, D-PAD Right, D-PAD Down, D-PAD Left) and Logitech G700s, with its 13 programmable buttons, comes very close to perfection. Extra buttons is exactly, what makes mouse a "gaming mouse", because extra buttons gives advantage over other players. Of course, higher DPI, faster pool rate, memory profiles and scripting makes mouse a "gaming mouse" too.

DPI and muscle memory: It is important to make sure, that mouse sensitivity in Windows is the same as in the Game, because it allows you to move windows cursor to a specific location or move in-game target onto the enemy without conscious effort.

DPI higher than 6400 is mostly a marketing gimmick, because many games does not support DPI higher than 3200. You can use low sensitivity settings and 10.8 inches swipe on the mouse pad to turn 360 degrees in the game. Sensitivity of 1600 DPI is most convenient for that now:

In Windows:

a) Open Control Panel -> Mouse -> [Pointer Options] tab and
b) Set pointer speed at marker 3 (11 markers: from 0 to 10)

In game:

1. Most games allow to set 360° Turn = 10.8" swipe.
2. With 80° in-game Field on View (FOV) and 1920 pixel wide monitor it allows to shift in-game world with 1/2 pixel precision exactly. This gives two advantages in FPS games:
a) Partly removes "pixel snapping" effect and results in smooth and high quality precision movement when sniping far away targets, which occupies 1-2 pixels on the screen.
b) Removes the need to use medium or long-range scopes in FPS games when using high precision weapons, when aiming at far away targets, because "pixel snapping" is no longer screws precision and forces you to miss.

Use mouse-sensitivity.com website to convert distance (10.8") and mouse DPI (1600) into in-game sensitivity value.

Multi-Speaker 5.1 or 7.1 Surround Headsets

We think, that future belongs to multi-speaker 5.1 or 7.1 headphones (like Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital), enhanced with surround sound algorithms, provided by audio sound cards/amplifiers (like Creative Sound Blaster ZxR). 10 speakers (5 on each ear) with their own 8 audio channels can produce much clearer and better 7.1 surround sound than all 8 channels merged in only 2 channels/speakers. Bigger and more expensive speakers in stereo headphones is better, than small and cheap speakers in 5.1 or 7.1 headphones, for stereo sound. But, if you had chance to listen 5.1 music, like Jean Michel Jarre - Aero DTS 5.1 (2004), through good multi-speaker 5.1 or 7.1 headphones and through stereo headphones with virtual 5.1 or 7.1 enabled, you can notice immediately, that sounds are more clear and pleasant in multi-speaker headphones and more mashed, like indistinguishable chaos, in stereo headphones with virtual 5.1 or 7.1 enabled. Unfortunately, all multi-speaker 5.1 or 7.1 headphones still (2016) have issues with comfort and build or sound quality (also, because of small and cheap speakers) and, therefore, are on the edge of wasting money... often even for 5.1 or 7.1 audio content. They are not as good and comfortable, as, for example, Sennheiser HD 559 high-end headphones... especially for stereo audio content.

5.1 Multi-Speaker: Roccat Kave XTD 5.1, Zalman ZM-RS6F, Tritton Pro+ 5.1, Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1, Psyko 5.1, CM Sirus 5.1
5.1 Virtual (stereo headphones): Logitech G35, JVC HA-RX700, Plantronics Gamecom 777, Razer Megalodon

Advice on buying 5.1 Headset / Headphones - these requirements will narrow your choice significantly:

Must be Real 5.1 or 7.1 (4 or 5 real speakers on each side) not some virtual simulation from or to stereo.
• Must have external volume control - front, rear, centre, vibration.
• Must have subwoofer vibration.
• Must have soft, thick and wide headband cushion since 8 speakers have extra weight.
• Must have soft circumaural cushion - an earphone cushion that completely surrounds the auricle (ear).
• Can be plugged directly into Creative SoundBlaster in order to use its latest EAX technology.
• Must have USB cable or external amplifier to power subwoofers vibration properly.
• Note: External analog amplifier adds extra noise so pick only if it has some extra features like multiple input/output audio switch which is useful on multiple PC set.

Some notes about other headphones and headsets:

• SpeedLink Medusa NX 5.1 Surround Headset: Ear pads are too thin. Have weak points in construction.
• Razer Tiamat 7.1: Low quality sound and build.
• Kinyo KY-100 5.1: Sound good but have no microphone.
• Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA: Extremely uncomfortable. Push on your ears so it hurts.
• Turtle Beach EarForce X-51: Nothing special. Not comfortable.
• Zalman ZM-RS6F 5.1: Have no bass.

PS: Don't forget to use Control Panel and setup your speakers to 5.1 channels. Also set sample rate to at least "24-bit, 44100 Hz (Studio Quality)". If you hear hiss when no audio plays then try to mute your microphone playback volume (keep recording volume non-muted). If hiss is still present then check devices on your desk (like daylight lamp) which could create interference. Turn of these devices or try to move them away from audio cables or amplifiers.

Virtual 5.1 OR 7.1 Surround (5.1 OR 7.1 Sound Card and 2.0 Headset) Sample audio

To simulate 5.1 or 7.1 Surround Sound on 2.0 headset you can pair...

Creative SoundBlaster

Creative Sound Blaster with SBX Pro Studio Surround

Virtual surround sound evolution... X-Fi CMSS-3D > THX TruStudio Pro > SBX Pro Studio ...recreates realistic surround sound from any audio source whether you are using multichannel speakers or headphones. X-Fi CMSS-3D Setup: Windows 7 Playback (Speakers: 5.1 Surround, Sample rate: 48000 Hz), SoundBlaster Audio Control Panel (Speakers: Headphones, X-Fi CMSS-3D: Enabled). SBX Pro Studio Surround Setup: Select 5.1 from windows control panel and enable SBX (you will need to use headphone out and select headphones through sound blaster CP). In stereo mode, just disable SBX. It doesn't have the data from rear channels so the position would sound just weird. If you don't play games and only listen to music, disable SBX and select 2.0.

VELOUR padding is more comfortable than LEATHER padding.
OPEN back headphones sound better, but leak sound in/out.
CLOSED back sound worse, but don't leak sound in/out as much.

“Open-back” headphones sound more natural and have wider sound-stage than “closed-back” headphones. But they leak sound to environment. When you are sharing space with other people, you should use “closed” type.

CSRaptX® Low LatencyReceivers & Transmitters Original Manufacturers

Bluetooth end-to-end audio latencies: aptX Low Latency (~40ms), aptX (~165ms), SBC (~220ms)

Both transmitter and receiver must support aptX-LL in order to have ~40ms audio latency.

Stereos: “The reason why the latency of aptX is so much lower than with other codecs is because they are frame-based, whereas aptX is sample-based. With a frame-based codec, an entire data frame (containing the core audio samples plus the information about how to unpack them) must be received and loaded into a memory buffer before it can be decoded. In comparison, while aptX does use data frames, the decoder can begin its work as soon as it starts receiving samples, rather than waiting for the rest of the data in the frame to arrive.”

Speakers

1. For good sound it is better to buy Separate Component System than All-in-one Home Theater in a Box System.
2. The human ear can nominally hear sounds in the range 20 Hz to 20000 Hz (20 kHz). Anything over 20000 Hz (20 kHz) and below 20 Hz is waste of money, because the human ear can't hear it.
3. Most consumer speakers today range in impedance from 4 to 8 ohms. The lower the impedance, the more power they will pull from the same amp. So an amp that puts 50 watts into an 8 ohm speaker can put as much as 100 watts into a 4 ohm speaker, assuming its power supply and circuitry is up to the task.

If you want good quality for rational price, you can choose SONY (SS-CS5 / 53-50,000 Hz / 80 EUR) or YAMAHA (NS-F51 / 43-26,000 Hz / 122 EUR) receivers and speakers. If you want to pay 5-8 times more for almost the same, you can choose POLK AUDIO (RTiA7 / 20Hz-27000Hz / 368 EUR), CANTON (GLE 409 / 20Hz-30000Hz / 416 EUR) or DEFINITIVE TECHNOLOGY (BP7004 / 16Hz-30000Hz / 590 EUR) speakers.

pc enclosure Fans

If you want SILENT PC, don't buy powerful fan if you don't need it. Look for minimum m³/h values as much as possible for your PC configuration. The biggest noise comes not from the fan itself, but from airflow, which goes through holes in case, where fan is attached. Bigger holes and space between case grid and fan means less noise. Even quiet fan with slow airflow, attached to case with small holes for ventilation, can become noisy. Ability to set fan speed manually is useful also.

List of storage device bit rates (Wikipedia)

Solid State Drives (SSD) for OPERATING SYSTEM. SSDs provide peak performance for booting and high read and write performance to supporting computing that requires enhanced multitasking capabilities. HDDs provide the lowest cost per gigabyte. SSHDs provide a cost per gigabyte that’s just slightly higher than HDDs.

SeagateIBMWestern Digital 60 EUR

Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHD) or Hard Disk Drives (HDD) for DATA. HDDs are the workhorses when it comes to sheer capacity and how much data can be stored. SSHD technology also offers maximum capacity points at affordable price points while SSDs are only affordable at lower capacities. High-capacity SSDs are extremely expensive. On the other hand, an SSHD can provide near–SSD performance for booting, launching, and loading data. HDDs usually provide ample performance for the majority of PC platforms available today.

RAID Level 0 (Striping)

RAID Level 0 (Striping) (Greitis):

RAID kontroleris padalina informaciją į blokus (pvz. po 4KB, 64KB arba 128KB) ir rašo juos į skirtingus diskus. Tarkime, jūsų kompiuteryje yra vienas 40GB diskas. Maksimalus greitis, kuriuo šis diskas gali perduoti duomenis, yra 150Mbps. Tačiau pagrindinė plokštė sugeba duomenis priimti kur kas greičiau. Todėl jeigu įstatote antrą diską ir įjungiate duomenų perdavimą per RAID kontrolerį, plokštė perduoda informaciją RAID kontroleriui, kuris padaliną ją per pusę ir tuo pačiu metu rašo į du diskus po 150Mbps. Tokiu būdu sistema gali paduoti ir traukti duomenis per RAID kontrolerį dvigubu (teoriškai) greičiu t.y. 300Mbps (2x150Mbps).

Privalumas: Duomenų perdavimas yra 32-37% didesnis už vieno disko greitį.
Trūkumas: saugumas - jeigu nors vienas diskas suges neatstatomai, neteksite duomenų abiejuose diskuose.
Talpa: Loginio disko talpa yra du kartus didesnė už mažesniojo disko talpą (pvz. naudojant du 40GB talpos diskus, Loginio disko talpa bus lygi 80GB).
Pastaba: greičiui padidinti galite naudoti du mažesnės talpos, bet greitus diskus (10000rpm). Tai labai patogus sprendimas dizaineriams, dirbantiems su dideliais failais t.y. situacijose kada kietas diskas yra dažnai maksimaliai apkraunamas. Jeigu su kompiuteriu žaidžiate kortomis ir landžiojate po internetą tai RAID 0 jums nereikalingas.

RAID Level 1 (Mirroring)

RAID Level 1 (Mirroring) (Saugumas):

RAID kontroleris paraleliai dubliuoja informacijos blokus (pvz. po 4KB, 64KB arba 128KB) abiejuose diskuose. Duomenų perdavimo greitis nesikeičia.

Privalumas: Jei vienas diskas fiziškai suges, antras diskas veiks toliau. Pakeitus sugedusį diską, jame bus padaryta gerojo disko informacijos kopija.
Trūkumas: Kaina - vietos praradimas dėka informacijos dubliavimosi (pvz. naudojant du 80GB diskus, Loginio disko talpa bus lygi 80GB).
Talpa: Loginio disko talpa yra lygi mažesniojo fizinio disko talpai.
Pastaba: saugumui padidinti galite naudoti didelės talpos lėčiau besisukančius diskus (5400rpm). Tai patogus sprendimas saugoti svarbius archyvus.

RAID Level 0 and 1 (Striping and Mirroring)

RAID Level 0+1 (Striping + Mirroring) (Saugumas ir Greitis):

RAID kontroleris dubliuoja ir padalina informacijos blokus keturiuose diskuose. Šiai konfigūracijai reikia keturių diskų. (pvz. naudojant keturis 40GB talpos diskus, Loginio disko talpa bus lygi 80GB). Šiuo atveju galite naudoti didelės talpos standartiniu greičiu besisukančius diskus (7200rpm).

Privalumas: sistema veikia 20-32% greičiau, o sugedus vienam diskui informacija bus saugi. Informacija bus apsaugota ir sugedus dviem diskams - išskyrus atvejį jei tuo pačiu metu suges du diskai su vienoda informacija.
Trūkumas: kaina - vietos praradimas dėka informacijos dubliavimosi (pvz. naudojant keturis 40GB diskus, Loginio disko talpa bus lygi 80GB).
Talpa: Loginio disko talpa yra dvigubai didesnė už mažiausiojo fizinio disko talpą.
Pastaba: Šiuo atveju galite naudoti didelės talpos normaliai besisukančius diskus (7200rpm).

RAID Level 5 (Striping and Parity)

RAID Level 5 (Striping + Parity) (Saugumas ir Greitis):

RAID kontroleris padalina informacijos blokus per visus diskus ir vieną bloką (parity) palieka kontrolinei sumai. Šiai konfigūracijai reikia ne mažiau nei 3 diskų. kontrlinė suma visada užims vieno disko didį.

Privalumas: Su 3 diskais sistema veikia taip pat greitai kaip ir RAID 0 (kuo daugiau diskų, tuo teorinis greitis didesnis), o sugedus vienam diskui, trukstamą informaciją galima atstatyti. Tai viena iš populiariausių RAID konfiguraciju.

Silver FabricPolarizing Filters

So called 'Polarizers' are applied on dual projection displays based on DLP™ or LCD projectors to achieve an immersive perception. Experts call such displays "Passive 3D Displays". Linear or circular polarization are the two main methods to achieve this optical effect.But each method has it's own advantages.

The main advantage of circular polarizers is that the recipient can tilt their heads without losing the immersive 3D perception. However, plain circular polarizers can cause ghosting and color saturation errors which is why we use enhanced methods and high quality materials to induce this both phenomens.

In comparison to the circular method the linear method gives a likewise better signal blocking. Moreover, linear polarizers are not that exspensive as polarizers based on the circular method. Thus, linear polarizers are the most common application for passive 3D dispalys and we recommend to prefer the linear method whenever possible.

3D “PASSIVE” Projection Screens
Pull Up Screen
Polarization Extinction

To reduce ghosting: Choose a screen with best (hight) extinction. The typical extinction of polarizers used in 3D projection displays is 1000. Choosing a polarizer with the maximum possible extinction is not necessarily the best choice, because high extinction polarizers usually have less transmission, and are less resistant to heat. Use polarizers with extinctions at least fifteen times larger than the screen extinction, both for the projector and for the eyewear.

When the viewer’s head is in normal position (upright), linearly polarized setup gives better performance due to its higher extinction. When the viewer’s head is rotated by 90º, both linear and circular setups are useless, because the parallax appears vertical instead of horizontal. The circular polarization offers a real advantage only in a certain interval of angles [A, B], where A > 0º, and B < 45º.

STEWARTScreens

Silver 3D for front projection material is generally accepted as the Rolls Royce of 3D screens, with a price to match. The frame they supply is their SNAPPER, which looks real nice, but does NOT FOLD or break down (four sides are solid).

FilmScreen 150 for rear projection is a flexible rear projection screen material formulated with a neutral density gray tint for enhanced contrast. Excellent in rooms where high ambient light is a concern. Appropriate for moderate viewing angles. This material is a perfect choice for passive 3-D applications.

TechPlex 150 for rear projection is an acrylic rear projection screen material formulated with a neutral density gray tint for enhanced contrast. Excellent in rooms where high ambient light is a concern. Appropriate for moderate viewing angles. This material is a perfect choice for passive 3-D applications.

TechScreen 150 for rear projection is excellent for use in 3D applications due to the screens ability to preserve stereoscopic images.

HARKNESS SCREENSScreens

Good brightness, good extinction, and looks to be good portability. Not cheap, but about half the price of Stewart. They claim to be the choice of DISNEY for 3D screens. They now have a rear screen material, but it is quite dark. They also offer a ROLLER screen with 3D material that would be produced on a custom basis.

Spectral 240 3D is used for ‘passive’ front projection with 3D systems using polarised light. The extinction ratio is high and provides spectacular 3D images. The surface also supports 2D images and so can be used successfully in applications where 2D and 3D are both shown. The intrinsically high gain (2.4) overcomes light losses in 3D systems. Seams are invisible under projection conditions.

Perlux 220 surfaces are recommended for ‘active’ (shutter eyewear) 3D systems and ‘passive’ systems not using polarised light. 3 levels of gain are available for different screen sizes to overcome inherent light losses in 3D projection. All Perlux screens give excellent images with 2D projection. Seams are invisible under projection conditions.

RP 3D is specially formulated for ‘passive’ 3D in applications where rear projection is required. Seams are virtually invisible under normal projection conditions.

There are two Stereo 3D projection techniques:

Front projection Rear projection (transparent projection screens)
The main advantage of front projection is that it takes less space to setup i.e. you don’t need space behind the screen to place the projectors. Rear projection is useful when you have space behind your screen for the projectors.
The audience will cast a shadown on the screen if they stand close to the screen. The immersive experience is lost. If you want the experience to be immersive you must use rear projection so that the viewer can walk up to the screen to allow their peripheral vision to be covered by the screen. Setting up a tracking system works better with rear projection.
Front projection screens are commonly available and are known in normal parlance as 'silver screens'. Rear projection screens called 'disney black screens' are custom made and more expensive. The color contrast is much better than front projection screens.

If immersion isn’t absolutely necessary, and stereoscopic 3D is the main goal, then front projection works effectively. Rear projection systems are a little more cumbersome to set up and more expensive, but the display is more compelling than front projection.

For Passive Stereo 3D Projection screens must have silver matte surface to preserve polarization.

Dirt sticks better to mate surfaces, than to gloss surfaces. Low abrasivity index (35) means, that this toothpaste will not sand-off everything from your teeth as fast and effective, as other toothpastes can with higher abrasivity index (70-165). But, after some time, you will notice positive trade-off - various type of dental plaque simply will not stick to your teeth, as well, as with more abrasive toothpastes, because surface of your teeth will be more polished-glossier, than sanded-matte. Even after night, teeth, usually, will remain clear and slippery, like they were cleaned not long ago.

CasioPRW-3100T-7ER (2015-10-01) 365 EUR

Super-Full-Auto-LED light: If the ambient light fades, a turn of your wrist illuminates the watch display particularly brightly and in coulor.

Low-temperature resistant (-10 °C): Even temperatures as low as -10 °C have no effect on this watch.

Solar Power: A solar cell provides power for operation.

Radio signal reception (EU, USA, Japan, China): Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China - once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. In many countries, it also sets itself automatically to summer and winter time.

Digital-compass: A built-in direction sensor detects the magnetic north.

World time function: Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.

Barometer (260 / 1.100 hPa): A special sensor measures the air pressure (measuring range: 260/1100 hPa) and presents this on the display in the form of a symbol. This enables early detection of weather trends.

10,000 m Altimeter: A pressure sensor detects changes in the air pressure and converts the result into an altitude up to 10,000 m.

Height Gain: The height gain sums all the meters you have climbed in a session, so that you can see at a glance the total ascent on a tour.

Altimeter data memory: Depending on the model, up to 40 sets of elevation data can be stored in the watch's data memory and re-accessed at any time. Each of these data sets consists of a measured altitude as well as the date and time. In addition to the individual altitudes, the maximum and minimum altitudes during a measurement are also stored.

Thermometer (-10°C / +60°C): A sensor measures the ambient temperature around the watch and displays it in °C (-10°C /+60°C).

Sunrise/sunset display: After entering the geographical location, sunrise and sunset times can be displayed for any given date.

5 daily alarms: The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. You can also activate hourly time signal that indicates each full hour. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.

Snooze feature: Each time you stop the alarm, it sounds again after a few minutes.

Button tones on/off: The button tones for using the mode button can be turned off. This means that the watch no longer beeps when switching from one function to another. Preset alarm or countdown timers remain active when the button tones are deactivated.

Automatic calendar: Once set, the automatic calendar always displays the correct date.

12/24-hour timekeeping: Times can be displayed in either a 12-hour or 24-hour format.

Mineral glass: The tough mineral glass resists scratching.

Resin case:

Solid titanium band: Stylish look and lightweight properties set titanium apart. The high-quality material is resistant to corrosion and is gentle on the skin, making it ideal for allergy sufferers.

Safety Catch: Always reliable: This watch has a particularly secure safety catch, which helps prevent the strap from opening by mistake.

Battery level indicator: An indicator shows the current battery level.

Water resistance classification (10 bar): Perfect for swimming and snorkelling: the watch is water resistant to 10 bar / 100 metres. The metres value does not relate to a diving depth but to the air pressure used in the course of the water resistance test. (ISO 22810)

Dirbantiems su kompiuteriu žmonėms didelę laiko dalį tenka praleisti uždaroje patalpoje. Suprantama, jog kartais ji yra gausiai prikvėpuojama anglies dioksido (CO2) - tai bekvapės, bespalvės, rūgščios dujos, kurių žmogus per 1 h iškvepia apie 22,5 l. CO2 pasiekus 4 % (4000 ppm) - skauda galvą, atsiranda ūžimas ausyse, susijaudinimas; Pasiekus 8-15 % - netenkama sąmonės. Iškvepiamame ore CO2 koncentracija sudaro ~4 % (4000 ppm). Pagal Higienos Normas, rekomenduojama CO2 koncentracija patalpose neturi viršyti 0,1% (1000 ppm) . Ypatingai ši problema aktuali žiemą. Stebėdami ir remdamiesi prietaiso parodymais galėsite objektyviau nutarti, kada laikas išvėdinti kambarį.

CO2 LEVEL AFFECT
350 - 450 ppm Normal outside levels
< 600 ppm Acceptable levels
600 - 1000 ppm Some complaints of stiffness and odors
> 1000 ppm Some people can start to feel lethargic and may suffer from headaches, begin to notice 'stuffiness'.
1000 - 2500 ppm General drowsiness
> 2500 ppm Complaining of headaches and a general feeling of illness.
2500 - 5000 ppm Adverse health effects expected. Symptoms such as breathlessness, visual impairment, sweating and even tremor or loss of consciousness may manifest themselves.
A 15 cfm ventilation rate per occupant will correspond to 800 ppm CO2
A 20 cfm ventilation rate per occupant will correspond to 1000 ppm CO2

• The 7001 will calculate the outside airventilation rate to a space based on theinside/outside CO2 differential readings.Outside readings can be established bymeasuring outside levels and holding the"enter" button on the sensor for 5 seconds.The outside reading can also be manually setusing the on-board keypad and display (default 400 ppm).

• Accurate interpretation of the VentilationRate indicator requires a measuring 2 to 3hours after occupancy has stabilized in aspace or at a peak in daily CO2 concentra-tions. In other conditions the indicator maytend to over estimate ventilation rates.

• The Ventilation Rate display assumes apeople activity level in the measured spacesimilar to an office type environment (1.2.MET). If higher levels of activity are presentthe indicator may tend to under estimateventilation levels.

For human comfort, desirable room temperature greatly depends on individual needs and various other factors. According to the West Midlands Public Health Observatory (UK), 21 °C (70 °F) is the recommended living room temperature, whereas 18 °C (64 °F) for bedroom temperature. A study carried out at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), on indoor air quality and subjective indoor air quality (SIAQ) in primary schools, states that perception of high room temperature was related to a poor climate of cooperation. To achieve a good SIAQ, it recommends room temperature should be at a maximum of 23.5 °C (74.3 °F).

SilhouetteTitan Minimal Art (TMA) The Must Collection (2015-01-01) 180 EUR

Silhouette is an Austrian brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses, founded in 1964. Headquarter and main production site are located in Linz, Austria. In 1999, the “Titan Minimal Art” series was introduced, that led to a cooperation with NASA in the following years. Since 2000 NASA uses “Titan Minimal Art” frame, combined with specially dark lenses developed jointly by the company and NASA's optometrist Keith Manuel. Weighing in at just 1.8 grams and devoid of hinge screws, which reduces the danger potential for astronauts to a minimum, “Titan Minimal Art” eyewear is virtually unaffected by the changes in momentum and extreme G-forces, experienced during space missions.

CentrumPerformance Multivitamin (2012-02-25) 10 EUR

Multivitaminai yra lengviausias būdas palaikyti reikalingą kiekį vitaminų organizme. Pirkdami multivitaminus visada rinkitės gerai žinomą gamintoją. Atsižvelkite į tai, kokiai amžiaus grupei, lyčiai ar fiziniam aktyvumui jie skirti. Multivitaminų instrukcijose būna surašytas kiekis medžiagų, esančių vienoje tabletėje ir rekomenduojamos dienos normos. Stenkitės pirkti tokius vitaminus, kurių sudėtyje esančios medžiagos neviršija rekomenduojamų dienos normų, kitaip galite ne tai, kad nepadėti organizmui, bet ir pakenkti. Dalis multivitaminų turi dozes kelis kartus viršijančias dienos normą. Mes nerekomenduojame pirkti tokių vitaminų. Atidžiai laikykitės rekomendacijų surašytų ant įpakavimo.

Venkite apgaulių. Žymių firmų vitaminai yra padirbinėjami, todėl pirkite juos tik iš labai patikmų šaltinių Dažnai nesąžiningi gamintojai prisidengia "natūralus produktas" lipduku ir naudoja šiuos teiginius, kad prastumti savo "lievus" produktus bei sumenkinti gerai žinomus ir turinčius gerą reputaciją gamintojus:

• Šiandien jūs su maistu jau negaunate visko ko jums reikia.
• RDA (rekomenduojama dienos norma) buvo sukurta prieš 30-40 metų ir joje surašytos normos yra per mažos.
• Lyderių gamintojų produktai yra nepilni.
• Multivitaminus reikia priimti kelis kartus per dieną, dėl to kad laikui bėgant didžioji jų dalis pasišalina iš organizmo be jokio efekto.
• Tikėkite mumis, mūsų produktas yra pats geriausias. Kaip profesionalus vaistininkas aš jų nepardavinėčiau jei būtų kitaip.
• Vitaminus, kuriuos rekomenduoju, vartoju aš ir visa mano šeima.
• Natūralūs vitaminai yra lengviau įsisavinami nei sintetiniai.

Taip pat "natūralūs" vitaminai turi tą trūkumą, kad dažnai patys gamintojai tiksliai nežino, kiek tabletėje kokių vitaminų yra. O ir pačios tabletės yra didelės (nes jose yra daug pašalinių "natūralių" priedų), bei jas reikia vartoti kelis kartus per dieną, kas gali gerai pratuštinti jūsų piniginę.

Vartojimas: Multivitaminai yra geriausiai įsisavinami su maistu, kadangi pvz. multivitainas E įsisavinamas geriausiai tik su maistu, kuris turi riebalų.

RadflekRadiator Heat Reflector Foil (120x60cm) 7 EUR

Radflek is a revolutionary energy saving radiator reflector that reflects 95% of the wasted heat energy radiated from the rear of a radiator back into your room.

Radflek is a laminated aluminium foil with a long lasting coating that prevents oxidation and preserves its high reflectivity. With Radflek, less energy is needed to heat the room to your desired temperature and so your energy bills will be less. Radflek is at least 23% more efficient than any saw-toothed reflector and will typically pay for itself in under a year.

No need for removal of radiators, professional installers, or any sticking to the wall – Radflek just hangs from the wall brackets behind the radiator. Disappears from view once installed. Installation is quick and simple, only taking minutes.

Batteries for alternative energy systems are available in 2, 4, 6, and 12 volts

1) RV / Marine / Golf Cart : RV or Marine type deep cycle batteries are basically for boats & campers and are suitable for only very small systems. They can be used but do not really have the capacity for continous service with many charge/discharge cycles for many years. Regular or Car type batteries should not be used at all because they cannot be discharged very much without internal damage. A very popular battery for small systems is the Golf Cart battery. They are somewhat more expensive than deep cycle recreational batteries but are probably the least expensive choice for a small system on a budget.

Industrial strength : Flooded, Gel, and AGM sealed batteries

The next 3 types are the heavier industrial type batteries. They are all also considered Deep Cycle and are usually Lead Acid types with much thicker internal plates that can withstand many deep discharge cycles. These next 3 are all designed for alternative energy systems.

2) Flooded types : These are Lead acid batteries that have caps to add water. Many manufacturers make these types for Solar Energy use. Trojan, Surrette, and Deka are probably the most well known. They are reasonably priced and work well for many years. All flooded batteries release gas when charged and should not be used indoors. If installed in an enclosure, a venting system should be used to vent out the gases which can be explosive.

3) Gel : Not to be confused with maintenance free batteries, sealed gel batteries have no vents and will not release gas during the charging process like flooded batteries do. Venting is therefore not required and they can be used indoors. This is a big advantage because it allows the batteries to maintain a more constant temperature and perform better.

4) AGM : Absorbed Glass Mat batteries are in my opinion the best available for Solar Power use. A woven glass mat is used between the plates to hold the electrolyte. They are leak/spill proof, do not out gas when charging, and have superior performance. They have all the advantages of the sealed gel types and are higher quality, maintain voltage better, self discharge slower, and last longer. The Sun Xtender series by Concorde Battery is an excellent example of AGM batteries. They are more expensive, but you usually get what you pay for. You will find this type of battery used in airplanes, hospitals, and remote telephone/cell tower installations. More...

MastervoltSoladin 600 Grid Tie Inverter (2012-05-05) 340 EUR

Working principle of the Soladin 600: The most important functionality of the Soladin is converting direct current, generated by the solar panels, into a standard 230 V/50 Hz electric power. The Soladin uses the electricity grid as an energy reservoir to which generated energy is sold back. In case the electricity provision is cut off, the Soladin 600 will automatically shut down.

Plug & play: The Soladin 600 converter is very compact and equipped with easily accessible 230 V and DC connections. Multi-contact connections have been included for the positive and negative connection of the PV array. The plug can be connected to a socket connection and makes the system ready to use. A clear LED indication gives information about the energy produced, the status of the system, and the Soladin converter.

Entry range: The Soladin 600 has a wide working area and this makes it possible to connect almost all systems up to 600 Wp. With a voltage frame of 45 to 125 V DC, configurations of 36, 54 as well as 72 cells can be connected to it. The current range from 0 to 8 A making the Soladin 600 suitable for the latest high power panels.

Žmonės nelinkę dėti pastangų į tas sritis, kurios jiems neneša pelno. Todėl, norint skatinti atliekų rūšiavimą, daugiaaukščiams ir privatiems namams reikėtų organizuotis ir statytis SAVO konteinerius stiklui, plastmasei, metalui, popieriui ir pan.. Užpildžius konteinerius, nuvežti patiems ar užsakyti superkančią atliekas kompaniją ir PARDUOTI išrūšiuotas atliekas supirkėjams. Iš gautų pinigų galima apmokėti dalį namo priežiūros, atnaujinimo ir komunalinių paslaugų. Pvz. galima nupirkti visai laiptinei taupias LED lempas ar vieną po kito sustatyti joje modernius langus - kas žmonėms sumažintų sąskaitas. Skatinti ekologišką gyvenimo būdą vien gražiais lozungais nepakanka. Žmonės turi ASMENIŠKAI pajusti tokio gyvenimo privalumus. Tik tada reikalai pajudės sparčiau į priekį. Privačios kompanijos galėtų irgi nesnausti ir statyti savo konteinerius gyventojams, už kurių surenkamą turinį mokėtų pinigus namui, kuriam tie konteineriai ir priskirti. Nes ateityje, neabejotinai, dėl to kils konkurencija ir vietas geriau užsiimti iš anksto.

Low Samsung 3D TV resolution
Samsung advertised Half-Quarter HD 3D UE##D6### 3D TV models as “Full HD 3D”

UE##D6### models may have 3D quality problems. UE##D7### (and upwards) models may be fine. (2011-08-06 ... 2011-10-01)

You can find descriptions about UE##D6### models as “Full HD 3D: Yes”, “Full 1080 HD 3D” on Samsung's web pages and “Full HD 3D” logo on TV's package.

Unfortunately, this TV model could be described as "Full HD 2D / Half-Quarter HD 3D". It is definitely "3D Ready", but not even close to real "Full HD 3D". Don't waste your money on this product if you are looking for "Full HD 3D" quality. Only low quality 3D input modes are available in this TV model (check page 160 of SAMSUNG UE32D6530 online manual which lists all supported 3D modes):

1. 2D-to-3D (worthless marketing stunt)
2. Side-by-Side - 1920x1080 (960x1080 pixels per eye)
3. Top-and-Bottom - 1920x1080 (1920x540 pixels per eye)

It means that 3D quality is low and looks blurry or edgy depending on your "Sharpness" settings.

At the moment only D7000+ series have "Frame Sequential" input mode (7) between other 3D modes:

1. 2D-to-3D
2. Side-by-Side
3. Top-and-Bottom
4. Line-by-Line
5. Vertical-Stripe
6. Checker-Board
7. Frame Sequential (highest 3D quality)

There are only TWO popular and simple ways to get "Full HD 3D" (native 1920x1080 pixels per eye):


A) "Frame Sequential" (highest 3D quality).
Input: 1920x1080p 50Hz, 60Hz, 120Hz (output supported by PC)
Output: 1920x1080 25Hz, 30Hz, 60Hz per eye

This feature is NOT SUPPORTED and it makes this TV unsuitable for hardcore PC gamers.


B) Standard HDMI 1.4 Full HD 3D "Frame Packing".
Input: 1920x2205p 24Hz (output supported by PC, NVIDIA 3DTV Play, and Blu-Ray)
Output: 1920x1080p 24Hz per eye (same output resolution as A, but lower frame rate (Hz))

This is where things are screwed in this TV model. Input image is simple box (1920x2205 "Top-and-Bottom"): 1080 horizontal lines for Left image, 45 horizontal blank lines, 1080 horizontal lines for Right image. TV will switch to 3D mode automatically, when nVidia supplies 1920x2205p 24Hz signal to HDMI input. But 3D image is not sharp as expected. You can clearly see large square groups of pixels (on the way to the screen image got squeezed to 1920x1080 (960x1080 or 1920x540 pixels per eye) and then upscaled, so HALF of the resolution is lost). This TV does exactly the same with images, when viewed with native TV picture browser - image quality will drop drastically, when 3D mode is ON (I've tested various high quality images with resolutions up to 3840x2160). Quality drop doesn't end here. If you are using "Top-and-Bottom" mode, then bottom picture have vertical odd lines duplicated over even lines. This means that bottom image has only 25% (or 960x540) of original (1920x1080) quality (demonstrational images below).


It would be nice for Samsung to enable "Frame Sequential" 3D mode input (I am sure, hardware can handle it, because firmware just needs to send frame change signal to glasses in sync with 60p input). It's 2011 and you could buy 3D monitor, which supports Full HD 3D 1920x1080 resolution per eye and flicker free 120 frames per second, in 2009!

So, it is not good idea to trust Samsung and their claims. LG is also dishonest company. They sell passive 3D TV displays and you can find on their web pages such claims as "Full HD 3D picture quality". Unfortunately, their passive 3D TV displays have "1920 x 1080 Line-by-Line" output-screen (1920x540 pixels per eye). This could be described only as Half HD 3D also.

3D Quality

Before buying 3D (TV or PC) display, make sure it can read and show Full HD 3D without downgrading resolution in any stage ...from original source to displaying on screen. Some even big manufacturers misleading people, that their displays are Full HD 3D, when in reality they are Full HD 2D / Half HD 3D.

High Quality Input / Source (Full HD 3D) High Quality Output / Display / Projection (Full HD 3D)
3840 x 1080 Side-by-Side 1920 x 1080
Frame-Sequential or Page Flipping
