The TAIHE Gemini Monitor Survey

The TAIHE Gemini Monitor Survey

Hi everyone,

As a backer of the TAIHE Gemini Monitor, I have received the survey today:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 1
TAIHE Gemini – Step 1

I’ve never had a survey sent using crowdox, which is the survey system TAIHE is using to collect backer details such as their main pledge, extra items, and of course, shipping address. I clicked the Confirm your Pledge button to have the survey started and filled as soon as possible.

I was then sent to their site where my pledge for the Gemini FHD showed up. Since this was correct, I confirmed it by clicking the Confirm & Choose Options button:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 2
TAIHE Gemini – Step 2

I was then able to select the country (maybe for shipping), the color, and selected Yes in the question about if I’ve already paid for it in Kickstarter, since as soon as the campaign finished, the pledge amount was charged.

TAIHE Gemini - Step 3
TAIHE Gemini – Step 3

Pressing the Save & Continue button, I was presented with the extra accessories. I added $15 in the campaign to receive the Gemini Sleeve, but I had to select it manually here by pressing the Add to Purchase button as it wasn’t chosen automatically:

TAIHE Gemini – Step 4

Then, it allowed me to set the quantity. I pledged for just one monitor, so I just leaved the quantity as 1:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 5
TAIHE Gemini – Step 5

I then proceeded to the next step by pressing the Save Extras & Continue button:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 6
TAIHE Gemini – Step 6

Next is the shipping address form. Once filled, just press the Save Address & Continue to Confirm button:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 7
TAIHE Gemini – Step 7

It will show us an overview of the reward item, extras, and shipping details:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 8
TAIHE Gemini – Step 8

If everything looks right, you’ll just need to press the Complete & Finalize Selections button:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 9
TAIHE Gemini – Step 9

And that’s basically it! A confirmation will be shown and an email will be sent to you:

TAIHE Gemini - Step 10
TAIHE Gemini – Step 10

So now, it’s a matter of following the project progress through their Kickstarter page and wait for the reward to be shipped, which has a delivery date for May.

Unboxing and installing the LG 29UM68-P UltraWide IPS Monitor

Unboxing and installing the LG 29UM68-P UltraWide IPS Monitor

Hi everyone,

In this post, I’ll show you my unboxing of my brand-new monitor, the LG 29UM68-P UltraWide IPS Monitor.

My main reason to get this monitor is related to productivity, as I like to use a lot of windows at a time and this monitor is actually the one I have at my work. It’s really a game changer when it comes to multitasking, as I can now place a window at a side and see all of the content while working on other stuff. Previously, with my standard 1080p monitor, I was feeling disconforted as I was switching between windows a lot.

Now, I’ll use this monitor as my main, and the 1080p for additional stuff, placing windows side by side so that I can work with more stuff at a time.

So, let’s get started!!!!

The box

The following are the front and two of the sides:

Inside the box

When we open the box, we see that it seems to have eveything well protected:

It had a piece of paper letting us know how to handle the contents:

After removing the first piece, we see the monitor behind:

After removing the LCD monitor, we see the other protecting foam:

Taking everything off the bag, we can see the cables, papers, and screws to mount the base to the monitor:

Now, we need to put the cover:

Next, we install the monitor base to the stand:

And that’s it!

Now, we’ll connect the cables:

The power cable on the back of the monitor:

It’s just perfect for multitasking!

The final setup:

You can see the LG monitor is at the left, while the standard 1080p monitor is at the right. I really like this environment this way and I really look forward into improving my productivity:

The monitor didn’t came with a DisplayPort cable, so I had to order it. We will see this cable in a later post.

You can get this monitor on Amazon here.

Hope you enjoyed this unboxing and the pictures!
