I guess you might have talked to the warehouse station then.
I feel your pain....Basically the same thing happened to me. The unit arrived at their "local" warehouse (or whatever) I called them and they said they could deliver it 3 days later. But I don't know if I would trust any of the other mentioned above for this big of a delivery.....Hopefully you get it in time for the long weekend. In the end its worth the wait.
Well i guess anything is possible then. But good luck getting the minimum wage dude to cut the price out on the floor for you...
Price matching i've heard of, but simply having them cut a price in a store like that because they wanted to hook it up?
seems like a fair enough trade
your vid card has dual dvi output...just plug one display into one..the other in the other...then goto your display properties and tell it which one to use as primary...u can drag the pics to either side
Skip the sales associates, work straight with the Sales Manager.
Ugggggggh my first real problem with this thing. I am fairly annoyed by this.
When I open photochop and open a picture of some roses and apply a filter thats for pencil or something I get blue pixels and they are just out of place. Close the photoshop, no blue pixels. Sometimes when I first start up the monitor it randomly flashes a few of these up, but it goes away after a minute or two.
Well crap, i think i fixed it, 60hz not 59hz. friggin idiot. i love my monitor
Thanks, but I meant the ways you can get this particular display to show two inputs, like this. I'm a bit behind the times in certain areas of TV and display tech, I wasn't previously aware that you could split the screen like in PBP mode. I like that this monitor is big enough for that to actually be useful. Can't wait to get it.
oh..once you get the W3 you just have to go into the screen menu options..and select what your primary and secondary sources are...for instance...my computer is on DVI 1 and my digital cable box is on DVI 2 so i have 1st source dvi1 and second dvi2(thats for pip) i hope that helps
Just got mine setup, no dead pixels
SCREEN IS HUUUGEEEE
Hello, where did you buy it? I´m looking any dealer that distributes/delivers Westy´s within Europe.
Regards and enjoy Xmas!
What's with the big wad of cash sitting there?
its all i got left
that's the daily take from all his bitches.. lol
Let me know if any one in the Houston area is looking for this monitor. I have an extra 1 that I've ordered from Buy.com few days ago.
does anyone know the wattage this screen needs? the reason i ask is that i will need a voltage transformer in order to use this LCD in Australia.
Hey, I finally fixed the image being shifted on DVI2. In ATI Catalyst, under Digital Panel Properties -> Attributes -> DVI Settings, unselect "Reduce DVI Frequency on high-resolution displays".
Which game is that ? Look's really cool, like a Joint Op's 2 or something cooler than BetaField2 ?
I think the screen is TOO big. I have it on my desk and MAN, its freakin huge.
How far is your face from the screen? Is your face level with the middle of it?
What's the story with game ? online like JoinOp's or BetaField ? Graphics look cool from this screen shot
Here's a few pics:
3-4 feet and yes it is level.
To those who have this monitor, how long do you think it will last you before you'll want to buy something else?
I figure if the monitor is too big for me, it will still do well as a gaming TV, especially since I'm still playing my consoles on a 22" Panasonic standard def tv.
I am going to buy one of these when I get my year end expense report check.. which totals a grand.. that + xmas funds should cover everything to my door.. color me excited!
does this monitor have 1:1 pixel mapping?
Yes, it does.
i curse bestbuy from delaying my tv. was supposed to get it on the 22nd but they delayed it till the 9th. BOOOOOO I WANT IT ALREADY and all you people posting pictures isnt making me feel much better
I don't have one but from what I read this screen isn't able to do 1:1. It does ratio scalling, but not 1:1 pixel mapping. ie a a resolution under 1920 x 1080 is shown with black around it and is shown exactly 1 to 1 pixel of the signal. But it can take a 4:3 aspect ratio signal and still show it as a box instead of stretching its width.
This of course isn't a problem for most people like it is on the 24 inch monitors because most hi def material is 16:9, which this tv/monitor is and not 16:10 like most widescreen computer monitors are. It does mean though that it will scale a 720p signal over the 1080 res of the tv and make it look not as crisp.
what about xbox 360? wont it upscale the dvd content to 1080p and make it look good enough?
Just got it.
All I have to say is: Good God
Pics coming later
I was just in the process of cleaning both of my monitors..when it came to me..."I wonder if people know the correct way to clean their lcd screens"...well here goes,
under no circumstances should you EVER clean your screen with paper towels and "windex" type cleaners...the paper towels(no matter how soft you think they are) will leave scratches on the screen...and over time...those scrathes build up and then its to late...2nd,some people may not be aware of the fact that your lcd screen isnt made of glass...its a plastic film...and windex turns the plastic grey over time...you need to buy a special cleaner and cloth specifically made for cleaning lcd's.
its 20$ but well worth the price...it can be found at most major retailers....hope this helps at least one person out
No, it does 1:1 scaling, meaning everything is displayed unstretched but is enlarged.
enlarged would be streched thou right?
There's also a home-made remedy that some may find helpful and cheaper: http://www.powernotebooks.com/articles/index.php?action=fullnews&id=32
Well, no, in that the proportions would be correct. Circles will look like circles and not ovals and people won't be fat or skinny. But the tv will scale it, meaning kind of fake the extra pixels, to make it cover the native resolution of the screen and not be a tiny picture surrounded by alot of black
for PC use, you guys are using DVI right? I have HDMI and VGA cables but I dont know which to use. DVI seems to be working great.
I have it hooked up to DVI through an X800XL. It looks great. I wanna upgrade my video card to something better. Probably a X1900 series for the superb IQ.
I just purchased the 42" Westy, along with a new receiver, speakers and a DVD player to bring my home theater setup up to date. I was wondering if anyone could please review my setup below, and tell me if I'm doing anything retarded. I read a lot on this stuff but I'm still pretty clueless!!
Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR674 Link
Speakers: Infinity Primus Theater Link
DVD Player: Sony DVP-NS75H Link
I also have a Velodyne 10" powered sub, DirecTV H10 set top box, an Xbox 360 and a PC w/ a 6600GT.
I'm going to run the DVD player and the DirecTV box to the reciever using HDMI. The receiver has 2 HDMI inputs, and 1 HDMI out. I'd run the XBox 360 to the reciever via component. The PC would connect directly to the Westy via DVI. The goal here is that everything except the PC would connect to the receiver, then I'd have 1 HDMI cable going from the receiver to the TV. This will primarily be my home theater setup for TV, movies and Xbox, with the PC for occasional surfing, Jukebox and World of Warcraft. I'll be sitting about 7 feet away.
- Am I losing anything by running the two devices to the reciever first, then to the TV?
- Do I get 1080p from the XBox 360 over component?
- Do I even need the DVD Player? I just want my standard DVD's to look as good as they can and this Sony does upconversion. Does the 360 HD-DVD do the same thing? Maybe It would be better to just get that instead.
- Do I need to connect audio from the DVD player and DirecTV box to the reciever, or will the HDMI connection take care of this?
Anything else I should know with this setup? Any recommendations from anyone? Thanks!!!!!
