    Best TN for color reproduction

    i read that some TN can be quite good at color reproduction even with 6-bit and dithering. a friend needs a monitor but only $300 bucks to spend tops. while it is for gaming, it also needs to be used for some color-sensitive work so the search is on for the TN panel with the best dithering...

    Dell 2408 LCD $399 Shipped

    crt's are better for blacks since they can actually make a black by the absence of light vs an LCD that is backlit. lcd is catching up but a good crt > LCD

    Westinghouse L2410NM or DoubleSight DS-245W?

    i was deciding between those two monitors just recently and went doublesight. last spring i wanted to get the dell 2407, and since the doublesight uses the same panel, i was leaning towards that. i also read the DS is built better than the westinghouse so that sealed it for me. dunno if...

    CRT or LCD?

    understood. i was just inquiring as to whether it has worth even though it is old. not even sure i want to sell the thing, but from the info in this thread, it seems newer crt's are not very good, so i was wonderin.

    CRT or LCD?

    yes desktop space. my trusty dell trinitron 21" aperture grill crt has served me well for 10+ years but my doublesight 24" will be a welcome change in regards to physical space on my desk, even though it is a big desk - i cant wait. gonna look so much more spacious and feel more open. that is...

    DoubleSight DS-245W vs. Samsung 245BW

    i will post my thoughts. il lbe usin it in about 10 days when i move to a new apartment. to the OP. if you want the doublesight you better get it ASAP. it is pretty much out of stock everywhere you look, and i think it is discontinued.

    DoubleSight DS-245W vs. Samsung 245BW

    i was gonna buy a monitor last may. my wants were: respectable color accuracy & photo editing chops, i am an amateur photog @ 24" so i can have lots of desktop real estate, 2 windows side by side, etc solid response time for gaming, not a priority but need to be reliable...

    8800GT Lockups

    with my 8800 GTS 320 i use riva tuner to run my fan at 100% during 3d applications running. i could care less about noise when i have a shooter blasting in my headphones or on my speakers. when i am just doin regular pc stuff the fan is quiet, and that is when quiet counts.

    *Official* Quad Core Overclock Thread

    i just installed a thermalright ultra 120 extreme with shin-etsu paste. my ninja was a POS compared to this cooler. my load temps with the ninja were hitting 69/71 @ 3.4ghz with the same volts as my loads now @ 3.42ghz being 10c less at 61/59. ambient temps have been more or less the same...

    Prices are low, but will they go any lower?

    how low were the prices the other month when people say they were the best? i bought 2 sticks of OCZ platinum rev. 2.0 back in december/january for like 240-250 i think. i just bought 2 more sticks today of the same memory for 109 with a $45 rebate so these are costing me just about 60...

    Q6600 - Which stepping did you get?

    if they are accepting a sealed unopened cpu box back obviously they have nothing against exchanging a non-defective item. nothing wrong with that.

    Q6600 - Which stepping did you get?

    you get the spec number once the status goes to shipped. most likely that just means the order has been packed to be shipped but still, probably too late to guarantee that they dont ship it to you if u call to stop it. and also, they have already charged your card by that point FYI.

    Q6600 - Which stepping did you get?

    id call them. some places that tell me to refuse delivery asked me to write an rma# on box before i do. trouble of calling? if calling a toll free # is that much trouble cause you changed your mind on an order from a good company, you got issues :D
