    LG 48CX

    YES! Quick start+ almost made me claim a malfunction on my b6 panel because green vertical lines were appaering everywhere on the screen. Ever since I turned off Quick start + I never got this error again, and the tv starts up just as fast.

    I've been getting the same results with the icy box, 2304x1440 at 79hz is stable, while 80hz has random mirroring effect. Found 1600x1000 at 96hz to provide very good sharpness and performance but will try more resolutions. So far very impressed with the display in competitive online shooter...

    So I got the Icy Box SPL1031 today but I didn't know it only takes input from minidp source (only minidp to minidp cable in the box) so now I need to get an adapter for that to use it with my 1080ti that has dp and hdmi outputs? edit: ordered minidp to dp cable, should get it tomorrow.

    Thanks Derupter, between the icybox at 45€ and the delock at 105€ is it a safe bet to go with the icybox for similar performance?

    A little update on my situation, I plugged in my FW900 and it runs fantastic, the guy who previously had it before me did a great job in color calibration as well, I can see he finely tuned the settings under the color menu for 6500k. Now I went and bought this...

    I found the DeLOCK 87685 for sale in my country at around 100 euros, from what I read in past posts it should be good, no?

    Thanks for the info, I've looked for the Sunix DPU3000 but can't find it in the european area. Would the "YIWENTEC DVI VGA Adapter, Active DVI-D 24+1 to VGA Link Video Adapter Cable Converter" which is available in my country be sufficent to perform at a decent resolution?

    I have a question, I have a 1080ti with 3 dp, 2 hdmi and 1 dvi-d outputs. I already have a VGA cable; which adapter should I choose out of the three to use with the fw900 to get maximum resolution and refresh rate?

    Hahaha ok, you know what, I think it's time to make space for a third display in my bedroom: My lg 55 inch oled, 24 inch dell s2417dg and a soon to be resurrected Sony fw900! Btw the story is that I had sold the fw900 many years ago to a colorist that was traveling. When he moved back to the US...

    I just realized I have a Sony FW900 hidden away under my staircase from many years ago XD My main pc gaming display is a Dell s2417dg 165hz tn lcd. I am tempted to take the 2 ton beast into my bedroom but I am worried about the risk of radiation. How safe are these built? Could it have broken...

    Just bought a FW900 here in Italy! I'm excited and a bit scared of I will end up with once I pick it up this weekend, but at least I finally managed to find one over here. Once I get it I'll have to look this thread up to fine tune it ^^

    Removing Anti-Glare Coating on BenQ XL2420T

    Been through it myself, tried to take off the ag from my Eizo fg2421 using the wet cloths technique and wasn't successful since apparently the glue that was used is not water soluble. Although admittedly the ag is semi glossy and not that bad on this monitor, still I would prefer to be 100%...

    Glossy IPS, 117 DPI (25" 1440)

    Is this sarcasm? If you replace glossy with matte then it would make sense (if glossy monitors were actually being released with modern specs).

    Buying a new TV is driving me nuts. Help me decide and help with Refresh rates.
