    Samsung or Viewsonic?

    Any company that has more than a few models of LCD is going to have some low-end models and some high-end models. Viewsonic, Samsung and the others has some excellent models but they also have cheap ones for people who don't want to or can't spend too much. The only exceptions may be NEC and...

    Viewsonic VX2025wm arrived! First impressions and pics

    That's seems to be the same pattern of backlight bleeding that everyone has on this LCD but your camera is obviously making it seem much worse.

    would there be a big difference between 19inch lcd and 20.1 widescreen?

    Besides the obvious difference of one more inch viewing area, the 19" has a max resolution of 1280 x 1024 and a 4:3 ratio and the 20" has a max resolution of 1680x1050 and a 16:10 ratio. There is a big difference between these two.

    Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultras - $199 @ Bestbuy

    LOL. I assume you're from America. If you are you should know that class-action lawsuits are started by lawyers not victims. Do you honestly believe anyone is going to take the time to meet with lawyers giving depositions to collect a few pennies on the dollar on a $399 purchase? Most people...

    Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultras - $199 @ Bestbuy

    Yeah, some people won't listen no matter what. It's not like anyone said Klipsch makes bad products. Its just the amp in one product line that seems be failing. AFAIK there are not any significant problems with other products. I liked my Ultras - while they were working. I don't think Klipsch...

    VX2025WM problems?

    So if you can't see the POST with different cards and motherboards and it works fine in VGA, then is seems like the monitor's DVI is toast. There's really nothing to adjust on the monitor other than selecting the port connection. This it does automatically and I assume you've tried it manually...

    VX2025WM problems?

    My vx2025wm seems to auto-detect whether there is a VGA or DVI connection so there should be no settings to change on the monitor. If you did that much testing, I would say that the DVI port may have fried (much like what was happening on the Gateway 21"). Did you try a fresh-clean...

    Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultras - $199 @ Bestbuy

    DO YOUR RESEARCH. As Oh4Sh0 said, many have amp problems. Mine crashed and burned after 2 years. Check Klipsch's own forum for amp issues. Many people have had theirs die after only a year or less. The speakers are well regarded but they are of no use if the pre-amp is fried. BTW, someone...

    vx2025wm or va2012wb

    Then you should get the VX. The VA is based on a TN panel while the VX is P-MVA. Check my sticky at the top of the forum to see the pros and cons of both of these panels. Also, Google some reviews and you will find that the VA only gets OK reviews.

    XFinity 500w - $56

    This seems to be the X-Finity 1st generation and it is not modular either so I'm not sure which one you had. If it was modular, I'm still thinking you had an X-Connect because AFAIK the X-Connect and the current X2 are the only modular PSUs tha Ultra has made. In any event, if you had a...
