Taipans said:From newegg that cable is 49.00 and if you get a shorter one they get even cheaper. It says 99.99 but thats just some BS until you add it to your cart.
Ladicius said:Why would one spend that much money on a cable when you can get one just as good for 12 bucks?
Imaulle said:just got my 37" wesy today.... its freaking huge!!! im a little upset because there is 1 dead pixel right in the center of the screen
ironforge said:Exactly why pay more for inflated retail brands?
I bought a DVI cable from monorpice.com and it is high quality. Very thick with gold connectors. Using a 25' one for my infocus projector. Works great. I think it was about $30 for a 25'. I wouldn't order from anywhere else.
Ladicius said:Is there any way to scale the image on this TV? Like it will have the black bars on the sides of the screen if it's in SD and if it's in HD the screen will widen out?
Ziming said:You could try to RMA it to westinghouse. I also have a dead pixel but its on the far left/bottom corner so it didn't bother me too much. Was a bit upset when I first found out but for the price I got it for I can't complain.
Johnie said:Sorry if this has been asked before but i didn't want to read through this huge thread.
Why are people still getting this if the 42" Westinghouse model with the same specs is the same price?
Taipans said:Nice pics, WOW and Gears of War look awesome on it!
Anyone play EQ2? All the tree's "flicker" when I move and it sucks. Wife loves it so we play together so no jousting please... lol
BTW: Anyone know a good place to get large resolution wallpapers?
Taipans said:No Flicker? I'm using a 7800 GTX, I would figure it is strong enough to run it. And I to have shadows off. When you walk around the tree's branches / leaves do this quick flickering thing. Once you stop it stops. Its very annoying and I wish I could figure out how to fix it, but SOE hasnt been very helpful, they almost scoff at us using 37" monitors. And tell me to use a smaller one, lol. Well if you ever get it to flicker by changing a setting let me know what it was, I cant get it to stop.
Johnie said:I guess i'll be getting the 37" to avoid problems and so it will be a little easier on the eyes so i can use it as a monitor also.
Reagan said:So I'm really interested in this display, but I need something for heavy (timewise, not processor cycles) computer use too, i.e. electronic journal research, writing papers, etc. How do those of you that have this feel about it in that sense? Is it just overwhelming to use for normal computer tasks or do you not even notice it? I'm trying to decide between this and the Dell 2407, which I realize has more screen real estate, but less screen overall, and I love the idea of having this as a TV as well...thanks for your time.
brentsg said:I believe lots of people that follow the avsforums prefer the 37 because the 42 is more prone to vertical color banding. The 42's firmware has had more issues as well.
