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

    These monitors are great, I've had mine for two years now. I was at a friend's house and was using his 46" LCD TV and Gateway FPD2485W 24" monitor ($600 when he bought it) for Cod4 on xbox360. Right away you notice the lag and motion blur on the LCDs and it took awhile for my eyes to adjust...

    Yeah I noticed it too.... everything looks much better. Just be sure to re-adjust (increase) your brightness otherwise you won't notice much difference

    I've been running mine @1920x1200 @96 Hz for almost 2 years with no problems or image loss.... Interestingly enough, I just tried 94Hz in the Nvidia control panel, and after changing, the monitor still displayed 96Hz when pressing the menu button

    yup, can't compare LCD "refresh rate" to a crt's refresh rate. The LCD updates each pixel individually. while a crt updates the whole screen at once. LCD response time is what should be compared to CRT refresh rate.

    Using Antennas With Your HDTV?

    I've heard of this before, but never knew that a regular old antenna worked for HD. I don't have an HD tv, but I'd like to get HD channels on my 24"computer monitor and do away with my cable company, which card do you reccommend? And do all channels listed as digital at antennaweb broadcast in HD?

    Hurin, thanks for the dynamic convergence write up. I'm one step closer to ordering a WINDAS cable now. Is there a guide for adjusting geometry in windas as mine isn't 100% perfect??

    360 Wireless wheel deal on ebay: $61.43

    I received it on thursday. The box was beat up, but everything inside looks and works brand new. The FF works great and really gave new life to PGR3. I'm already beating all my old lap times with it. I can't wait to play Forza 2.

    Games and to cheat or not to cheat... or is it even an option?

    I'd never cheat or use any bugs to my advantage in multiplayer. Rarely do I cheat in single player, but I just did in GRAW because when you beat the game on hard, you don't unlock the normal achievements as well. bullshit if you ask me...

    New Forza 2 replay video (amazing)

    Looks pretty good. I can't wait to play it. I just bought a wheel on ebay for this game! GT:HD has nice textures. Thats it. Forza's lighting is better. I still think Forza's "wheel motion" looks wrong. Will your customized paint scheme show up in Live play unlike the first one?

    Forza Motorsport 2 Info (Screenshots, Partial Car List)

    I agree... its all about in game. The GT series always had amazing replays but the in-game wasn't as good (same with PGR3). On top of that, this generation is all about lighting effects. It is really hard to get a feel for real time lighting from a screenshot. Wait until you see both games in...

    Consoles & PCs To Converge?

    The only way the PC and console will merge is if PCs become more like consoles. In that the games need to be plug and play. The general public can't figure out how to disable spyware that is choking out their PC, let alone install a PC game and get it to run properly. Besides that, I don't think...

    How is d/ling a movie more wrong than the studio giving actors million dollar contracts?? Or any worse than charging $5 for 10 cents worth of soda??

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

    Yeah that was GRAW at 1080p... it runs the same as 720p.... i believe the 360 doesn't render it at 1080p, it just upscales the image so there is no performance difference unless the game is being rendered at 1080p (currently no games support this). I think the colors look more saturated when the...

    Mine works fine at 1080p. I do get the underscan that you are describing illmatic, it doesn't bother me though. The difference is not that noticeable, but its a little sharper and the colors look brighter. I thought the menus and dashboard would be in 1080p at the very least, but they are just...

    Dead Rising for Xbox 360 Review @ [H]

    This is a really fun game despite its minor (in my mind flaws). DO NOT LET THESE "FLAWS" PREVENT YOU FROM BUYING THIS GAME- you would be missing out on a lot of fun and my favorite title for the 360. I think Capcom tried too hard to increase the replayability. The save system bit me in the ass a...

    As far as poor colors, try turing the color gain up to 100 and the contrast all the way up. And to whomever was complaing about ebay shipping prices.... You have to understand that it is just a seller's gimmick... just look at the total price to see if you're getting a good deal. A lot of...

    Forza Motorsports 2 News

    I hope Forza 2 is better than Forza 1 was. I liked the game, it just had little details that pissed me off: The wheels looked like crap when the car was moving, exhaust pipes did not visibly increase in size when a racing exhaust was added, and the tires on the car still showed tread even after...

    Road & Track Presents: The Need for Speed

    This dos emulator you speak of? which is the best one? I played almost all of the NFS series games, but none could compare to the origional. It had no unlocks, you'd just pick your favorite car and just cruise. I remeber spending hours trying to beat my lap record on the red rock track (i...

    Road & Track Presents: The Need for Speed

    Does anyone remember this game?? I have some great memories from playing this game all the time. The alpine track is probably the best track ever created (well from what I remember anyway). I think I still have a copy at home and for some reason I really want to play it again. Could I get this...

    Glab to hear yours is in good shape and you finally got to see what all the fuss is about. Its funny you ask about cleaning the screen cause i would like to know the best way also. Mine has something sticky where the bezel meets the screen.

    ATI Radeon X1900 Series Evaluation Discussion Thread

    yeah X's are lame i still think [h]ardocp needs to up the highest resolution that they test at. its 2000 freakin 6. many many of us have widescreen monitors that support at least 1920x1200. Hell, i play call of duty at 2304x1440.

    ATI Radeon X1900 Series Evaluation Discussion Thread

    Thanks. I mainly got the BNC to use both inputs as well. Im thinking the ghosting is caused by my electric heater behind my desk. With the VGA cable, the picture shakes, with the BNC, it ghosts when the heater is on. Do any retailers like staples or best buy sell BNC cables? i'd like to buy a...

    i had a little ghosting with my 6' BNC cable, im wondering if it is because i bought a cheap ($13) cable. also, i found the best way to adjust convergence settings: using a convergence dot test pattern (i used Checkemon 's convergence dot pattern), separate the horizontal convergence so that...

    I just hooked up my BNC cables today and everything appears sharper, especially the edges of the screen. Also, my ASC button never works correctly, it will always make the screen 4:3 no matter the resolution.
