I just called AIT and they said my shipment was in San Francisco (I'm 50 miles east) and that I can call tomorrow morning and schedule a Friday dropoff. I didn't even know what to say. That's stupid.
No more AIT for me.
Maybe I'll call back and ask if tomorrow would be possible. Is this a small shipping company or something? Lacks the manpower seen with Fedex, DHL, and ups?

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 sidetygirwulf said:My boyfriend and I have separate finances. I just like to let him know when I plan on sinking a large sum of cash into something, and he appreciates me asking his opinion. I thought he'd tell me it'd be stupid to get a 37" screen for private use, and the last thing I want is for him to be jealous of me.
We went to Best Buy yesterday (must make a note not to do that again the day after Christmas) and he went straight for the TVs to look around. Perfect opportunity to talk about the Westy. When I told him that some people use it as their PC monitor, he said "shoot, I would too." After we talked, he asked me to keep my eye out for a smaller TV/monitor for him. I think the 22w2 would be good for him, but I will have to investigate.
Seems there aren't too many places selling this right now. I'd have to pay sales tax from Newegg and buy.com's resellerratings score scares me. Looks like I'll be waiting for a little while for more places to get it back in stock. Gives me time to plan the setup.
I read through this entire thread, and someone posted some pictures of the different ways you can display two inputs at the same time. Could someone repost them, or post a link back to that post?

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?
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.[Retaliation] said: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

it cost me 231 extra. zo
1080 + 231 = 1311 for an awesome screen unable to get in Europe. Nor for the price, nor for the options.
thumbs up WESTY !
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.claudione314 said:Yes, it does.

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.
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[Retaliation] said:http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...r&kw=monster+screen+cleaner&parentPage=search
