    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    I use the Mystify screensaver. I do like that it's mostly black. Pretty aggressively. If I'm not sitting at the computer I'll have it on. And for any extended period away I'll let the monitor go to sleep mode or have the display physically turned off. (I try to be as gentle as possible with the...

    Thank you. What was the model number of the Delock again? (Have Startech's, but have not looked at gradients for some time.) BTW...I wouldn't run a blank screen saver on a CRT. Heard some warning in the past about that causing some kind of unwanted build up.

    What is the absolute best monitor for gaming right now? I've been away for a long time...

    Still using CRT since forever (F520, FW900) for computing. Perhaps ironic to say in 2021, but they just work. No hassle. (Until someday they don't.) OP, wouldn't pay much for a used CRT, kind of like buying a used lightbulb, but if one is cheap and available might be fun for you to check out...

    So did anyone ever see that $35K NOS FW900 show up elsewhere again? I followed it for a bit and didn't. Seems like it all went hush hush. I still have no reason to believe that sale wasn't legit. The display's amped up popularity, NOS in 2021 after almost 17 years, CRTs being consumable, and...

    Have had mine briefly wake up if shared by two computers. With the computer on the selected input off, but on the other input on. In these cases, I'll switch off by the power switch. 10 years seems not bad. My original FW900 lasted about 9.

    Howdy friend. Just a single monitor in use here. It was for my enthusiast set up in this dim room, but became my everything setup when the pandemic and shelter in place hit. Indeed might be fun to set up a 21" companion screen. Furniture situation is kind of tight though. Presently using a...

    LG 48CX

    Hi Everyone. Can the CX do 4:4:4 and BFI at the same time? Can the C1? (I had read something regarding the latter that appeared to be suggesting the contrary.)

    Still using my FW900 as my main monitor at home for everything as I have for many years. (More work in that mix of course with the current situation. Though on the flip side, the phone took over some of the hours that would have been on the CRT.) I run 1880 x 1200 at 85 Hz for work. That same...

    Digital Foundry has put out another FW900 commercial. They also gave a shout out to LG OLED. BTW: Anyone know if the C1 can do 4:4:4 and strobe at the same time? (Thought I read something casting doubt on that, but I'm thinking I must have misread it.)

    Sorry...I'm just seeing this now. Been a crazy year. Sorry, I do need to retain the bezel for future contingencies.

    Well, the last image looks a lot better. Looks like you had some degree of luck with the landing adjustments. It wasn't as bad as your FW900, but an F520 arrived to me with an error outside of the range of the landing controls to compensate. I addressed it, at least temporarily, by positioning...

    More of an issue with the FW900 probably. With 1280 by 1024 being the classic exception to avoid for 4:3 tubes. (And ironically the 1600 by 1024 version being almost spot on for the FW900.) FWIW...I also still make sure both the horizontal and vertical are divisible by 8.

    For Cyberpunk 2077, I ended up with a resolution of 1880 by 1200 at 72 Hz. This is with all graphics settings through Ray Tracing maximized, except had to enable DLSS (quality setting). I also tried lower resolutions without DLSS, but Cyberpunk appears to benefit more from the combination of...

    Thank you both. I used to use PowerStrip to enforce resolutions back in the day, but just the built in tools after that. Downloaded CRU. Looks good. Just used it to fix 1600 by 1024 at 100 Hz I think.

    So I was trying to see how high a resolution I could do at 100Hz vertical refresh on the FW900. Using GTF timings, keeping within the display's true aspect ratio, and keeping things divisible by 8 if that's still a thing. And ended up with this: Is it odd the FW900 goes this high in...
