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...
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.
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.
you guys think i could sell my 21" dell trinitron CRT?
got it almost 10 years ago, its not going dim whatsoever. i went lcd for desktop space physically, and to get a 24" size for virtual desktop space.
well just set up this puppy and first of all DAYUM 24" from a 21" crt is BIG!
i love it.
did some pixel peeping and found 1 stuck pixel in the lower left, stuck in green mode, no dead pixels.
tryin to read if u can get rid of stuck pixels but i cant notice it doing anything it is...
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...
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.
i was gonna buy a monitor last may.
my wants were: respectable color accuracy & photo editing chops, i am an amateur photog @ www.simplyathos.com
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...
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.
since far cry, this is the best fps for me. sick game - so immersive. on arcadia now and it is nutty.
except to me, the people bitching are more like those fuckin psycho right wing religious capitalist moral police hypocrites that seem to have been in charge of this country the last 6 years...
man people complain about the dumbest things
this review says it all quite well:
"Oh, BioShock... The last year or so you've been called the next big game by many journalists and gamers, won numerous awards at conventions and events, and spawned a day or two of nothing but BioShock related...
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...
im runnin exactly the same speed on my chip except my ram is at 1:1 with my multi at 8x - also the same voltage.
considering my ambient temps in here are 80F i am kinda stuck. i primed for an hour at 1.42v at 3.6 and was plowing through small ffts no problem, but my temps reached 71 so i...
ordered mine 5pm 07/25 and it arrived this morning at my house in NJ at 9am.
pretty fast from BC to NJ if you ask me.
nobody was home so i called fedex and my SLACR will be waiting for me at their place nearby for me to build with tonight.
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...
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.
ive seen a few people tonight get shipped B3 from NCIX.
i was shipped a G0 today though as a lot of other people were.
i have a brand new sealed B3 from mwave if anybody wants it before i return it. pay me of course.
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
