    PS3 + Dell2707 problem

    Well, looks like we won't have to worry about it anymore. Sony just released Firmware version 1.80, which contains the fix all of us DVI-HDMI users have been waiting for - it's listed as "HDMI (Full Range)" under the XMB Settings menu. Old: New: I guess I'll be repurchasing...

    Samsung Syncmaster 275T RELEASED

    Is that because the menu settings for the BenQ are capable of lowering the brightness levels down to a suitable level? I haven't seen anyone outright confirm that the BenQ has perfect blacks immediately after plugging in a PS3... The amount of monitors that do seem affected, though, far...

    Samsung Syncmaster 275T RELEASED

    Some more impressions: Switching between different input sources is extremely slow (Around 4 seconds per selection), and rather clunky as well. But this is only noticable when you're rapidly switching between connections, as I've been the past hour or so. Menu options appear to be quite...

    Samsung Syncmaster 275T RELEASED

    All right. I'm returning this piece of shit tomorrow. Initial observations: Monitor is in desperate need of calibration out of the box... the 2707 produces a far more superior image fresh out of the packaging. NO 1:1 PIXEL MAPPING AT 1080P The analog inputs (Component, S-Video) are...

    Samsung Syncmaster 275T RELEASED

    My local Future Shop just received their 275ts this afternoon, so if the store has them ready for purchase, I plan on having one by the end of tonight. After talking with a few people and doing some research on the 'net, all of my sources say that FS has a 14-day, no-questions-asked return...

    Samsung Syncmaster 275T RELEASED

    Well, if that's Future Shop's policy, then I have no problem buying the set and plugging in a PS3 to see how it performs. Actually, that's probably what I'll do, anyway. :p I'm still quite familiar with my old 2707, so I should be able to do a relative comparison between them...

    PS3 + Dell2707 problem

    It has to do with the 2707's way of interpreting different types of video signals. I'm not fully versed in the technical details, so I can't give a full-on explanation, but while the problem is essentially coming from the PS3, it's also the 2707's fault for not properly recognizing the...

    PS3 + Dell2707 problem

    No, this problem affects each and every 2707WFP; along with myself, I've personally talked to two other people with the same "washed-out" effect, as well as the numerous Dell Support users who have commented on the issue. If you actually examine one of the pictures at the latter link you...

    I'm pretty sure those VGA specs aren't accurate; I didn't get a chance to test out any of those resolutions, since I've returned it already, but I've seen a link where someone did a review of the 2707 specifically for use with a 360 connected through the VGA port. It was a Korean website, I...

    Will it EVER end?

    2.35:1 Widescreen is advantageous for theatrical exhibition, because the entire "frame" emulates a person's vision by presenting a wider image that surrounds the viewer's field-of-view, creating a more immersive experience (Supposedly). That's the reason why so many big-budget/"epic" films are...

    I sat about 3.5 ft. away from the display. Due to the nature of my setup, it was impossible for me to go any further. At that distance, the text did appear to be visibly blocky and lacking "volume", if you know what I mean. If I were to back up slightly, it wouldn't be noticable, so it all...

    I'm sending mine back to Dell on Monday. Honestly, the monitor's fantastic for general PC use, but one key issue motivated me to organize the return: THE 2707WFP IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH PLAYSTATION 3s. Well, perhaps I shouldn't say "incompatible", but unless you have a high tolerance for...

    Okay, so I just got the monitor, and I have some serious concerns with the black levels. Quite frankly, they suck shit. I'm comparing the 2707 to my Macbook, and it's insane how much they differ. When watching a 1080p clip with 1:1 scaling on, the difference between the blacks inherent in...
