This monitor is really nice, haven't noticed banding or anything. It's just so huge it'll take a little getting used to, but it's really nice. 1680x1050@75hz :cool:

Crappy onboard video at 1600x1024 @ 60HTz with a strected background and using the VGA connection. New video card comes this week, I cant wait.

I just hope we get the last laugh, and the price gets permanently changed to $140.00. Haha, I guess I can dream on.

Mine is stuck at 60Hz. Any difference between 60 and 75?

if you use the VGA plug on your card you can bump it to 75... but its fixed at 60 with DVI.

There is no difference between 75 and 60Hz on an LCD. It matters with a CRT since the phosphors don't glow all that long and you get a physical flicker as the phosphors aren't updated quickly enough at 60Hz.

On an LCD, the pixels don't glow brightly then fade very quickly until the next refresh cycle. The backlight is always there and the pixel is the same color until it is changed.

I am sure this LCD does not even compare to the NEC 20WMGX2.
For around $200 shipped, who can complain?

Dang that was a real lucky deal, and I was at home and everything when the deal went down. This is what happens when I don't obsessively check places like this :p

Last I heard of a larger pricing error was a few years back, I can't remember exactly but some website accidently had labeled FX-53 processors for for only a couple hundred $ (they were worth $1000 or something at the time)... several people bought them and actually recieved them at the cheap price. Anyone here remember that?

Nice and only $35 shipping to my door for the Bare CPU and the waranty card too!. I may jump on this! (no seriously why are ebay people always on crack about shipping?)
Because ebay charges nasty "final sale" fees on the final selling price, but they don't charge anything for the shipping costs. By converting some of the final selling price into shipping, they're keeping their costs down.

ebay has lots of good deals, just always consider the total price including shipping in if you're comparing prices.

ebay doesnt have jack for deals anymore, everything is within $10 of retail.

Because it's the only charge that Ebay doesn't take a cut of. Thus, if you overcharge on S/H, you can recoup a portion of Ebay's ever increasing fees.

On a $500 sale (incl s/h) you've got

$15.00 in pay pal fees

$469.00 Insertion fee: $3.60
Final Value fee 14.63

The cost of shipping with insurance is probably $10.00. A box, in theory, is a buck.

So the seller is recouping roughly 2/3 of the Ebay fees.
As a buyer I don't like it, but when I sell, I generally do it, because on some items, ebay fees end up eating your lunch.

That said, agree with others that it's increasinly hard to find good deals on ebay.
