    Pc gaming chair

    I happen to be in the market for a new computer chair. My current one is pretty uncomfortable and is starting to bother my back. I'm kinda thinking about getting this one because I can take it from the PC to the consoles without taking up extra space. The AK Octane looks pretty cool too though..

    My realization of how much a drug WoW actually is.

    For me, it wasn't WoW, it was Dark Age of Camelot. I'd never really played an MMO before, a couple closed betas, but nothing on-going. I totally did not buy the idea that such a game could be addictive. DAoC seemed to be the same as the others I'd tried, except the first time I logged in, a...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I love this monitor! I'm still just as impressed by it as I was when I got it. I got my xbox360 a couple weeks ago while still at my mother's house, and had it hooked up to her 47" Samsung 720p TV. It's an older rear projection TV. I thought everything looked great on it, a little bit...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Just got back from my mom's house late last night. She got me a 360 premium for my birthday, along with Gears of War, Crackdown, Tomb Raider and Viva Pinata, a wired controller and VGA hookups. Sweet. :D We've been playing the entire week over there, can't wait to see what it looks like on...

    Still loving the monitor, I just got one problem... The freakin' remote has disappeared! :confused::confused: I have never taken it off the coffee table, so I suspect my boyfriend. He says I'm the one who lost it, but he's the one who does stuff like leave games in the silverware drawer and...

    Anyone see the March PC Gamer review on the Westy? They recommended it over the 30" Dell and a 30" HP (I think). My boyfriend keeps taking it to work so I haven't really had a good look at the magazine yet. My bf and I spend more time together now thanks to the Westy. We can watch movies...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I am getting soo spoiled by this Westy. I'm sitting about 4.5-5 feet away from it, on the couch. From this close it's almost like staring at a movie screen. My boyfriend hooked his PC speaker system up to it so we could watch movies together. I also found an ethernet cable just long enough...

    Jared701: The stand is not adjustable at all, unless I'm a complete idiot. It's about 3 or 4 inches tall. Black performance is better than I thought it was, when I said it was on par with my Sony monitor. I don't know what I was thinking, lol. I loaded up one of my favorite photos I've...

    claudione314 is right, it's a screensaver called Dream Aquarium. Unlike a lot of aquarium screen savers, this one focuses on freshwater fish. It looks incredible on any monitor but of course on the Westy it is breathtaking! I haven't paid for a screensaver in about 6 years but I paid the $20...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    This monitor is indeed over the top! But you could say the 30" displays are, too, and this is just a little step up from those. I'm glad mine has extra functionality as a console gaming display, and not just for the consoles with VGA hookups. Last night before I went to sleep, I spent some...

    That is indeed Morrowind. I still play it now and again, even do a bit of modding. As for getting a standard def TV signal on the Westy, use your VCR if you have one. Plug the cable in the VCR, then plug the VCR into the Westy using the RCA/composite cables. This monitor does not have coax...

    Anyone have pics of Westinghouse 37" LCD??

    Some of my pics from the other thread. Westy is sitting on two end tables pushed together right now, but I'll be moving it to my desk as soon as my boyfriend gets an HDTV himself.

    For anyone who hasn't got one of these things yet, I must stress that you should run, not walk, to the nearest e-tailer to get one. ;) I almost wish I'd put my money down on this monitor first instead of my Conroe gaming rig. I haven't seen a picture yet that really does this monitor justice...

    I know the Westy seems to have some problem de-interlacing 1080i content, but I could've sworn that on the big avsforum thread, someone said he was able to get it to "adjust" to de-interlacing his 1080i HD cable input. I just can't find it, nor remember what he said he did. Anyone have any...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I have one red pixel in the bottom left, about one inch from the bottom and two from the left. My eyes don't travel all the way down there very often so I don't notice. It helps that it shows up only when that area is black. I have a couple pics but I've been too busy playing to think about...

    Just got mine. :D Picked it up at the freight center since we have a friend visiting with his pickup. My friend and bf are playing Halo2 on it right now. They were playing last night on my old 20 inch CRT, so this is quite a big step up. It looks incredible! I think I'll keep it hooked up...

    Thank you, that's good info to know since both my rigs run Radeon. I'm very excited about seeing this thing in person! :D I've been filling up my already full hard drives with 720p and 1080p content. Won't be long before I set my cash down on another 500gb drive.

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I ordered a memory foam mattress set (Bergad) in the summer, and it shipped via freight. The freight company called to ask me what day and what block of time was good for them to come by. The drive was driving a semi, so they asked me to make sure the guy could get in and out of my apartment...

    Sweet, sweet pics. I'm not much on football or basketball, but it would be great to see the UFC in high def like that.

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I checked mwave.com and noticed they are now out of stock of the Westys. My order wouldn't have been approved until tomorrow morning. Pointless to wait so I canceled the mwave order and ordered from newegg with the warranty. I paid a bit more because of sales tax, but I actually trust newegg...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Well, my shipping address is different than my billing address. I went ahead and ordered, thinking my bank would be able to add it as an authorized shipping address. They aren't, so I had to fax mwave a note saying I authorize them to ship to a different shipping address. Waiting to hear back...

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Well, maybe I jumped the gun, but I ordered one for $1268, which includes 3-day fedex shipping from mwave. Hopefully I won't have any problems with the order or the westy when it comes in. Good incentive to clean off my desk now. :D My boyfriend is also excited, it means he gets a free...

    Well, I think it's understandable to be a little nervous with all the rumors of being discontinued, and I have had to learn a couple of lessons this past year about believing what companies say about their products and plans for their products. Right now, I"m not sure what to think. On one...

    Post your Oblivion pics here!

    I'm one of the lucky few who grabbed the beta of Qarl's third texture pack. I would definitely say it makes the game look tons better. The second pack is very good, but since you still see a lot of bethesda's default textures, Qarl's really stands out as not belonging with the rest. With the...

    One of my favorite shots, also my wallpaper. Qarl's textures make this game so screenshot worthy.

    Old games you would like to see remade.

    I'd love to see Daggerfall remade. I know with the random generation, towns, dungeons and wilderness all looked pretty generic, since there were so many generated areas. I suppose that's realistic, because unless you know a forest real well, they all look pretty much the same, and one small...

    To those who have this monitor, how long do you think it will last you before you'll want to buy something else? I figure if the monitor is too big for me, it will still do well as a gaming TV, especially since I'm still playing my consoles on a 22" Panasonic standard def tv.

    Wow, Qarl, those textures... godly! I haven't played Oblivion in quite a while and don't remember where I put all my screenshots. So here's one from late March, taken with my older PC when I had a 9800 in it.

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    Thanks, but I meant the ways you can get this particular display to show two inputs, like this. I'm a bit behind the times in certain areas of TV and display tech, I wasn't previously aware that you could split the screen like in PBP mode. I like that this monitor is big enough for that to...

    My boyfriend and I have separate finances. I just like to let him know when I plan on sinking a large sum of cash into something, and he appreciates me asking his opinion. I thought he'd tell me it'd be stupid to get a 37" screen for private use, and the last thing I want is for him to be...

    I want this monitor soo much. I just need to figure out how to talk to my boyfriend about it. He is fine with tech, but his attitude is that what he's got is fine, and since what I've got is better, he doesn't understand why I'd want anything different. I could probably talk about it as our...

    New build, weird problems, I'm going nuts

    Yeah, I've done it tons, too, so while that warning briefly freaked me out, I realized that probably isn't why the keyboard is freaking out. I've switched between my Saitek Eclipse and IBM model M keyboard numerous times on my sig rig with no problems. I reinstalled the chipset drivers off...

    New build, weird problems, I'm going nuts

    I apologize for the long post in advance, but I like to be thorough and try to fully describe problems in order to avoid mis-understanding. I've had too many experiences with people telling me simply "My computer doesn't work,"to inflict it on anyone else. :p Despite not building a complete...
