My bad...I'm sorry man. I figured I would get an email when I got a PM.

But to answer your question, I got the desk like 6-7 years ago from Office Depot for about $150 and all I can remember about it is that it was from the manufacturer "O'Sullivan"

The desk is great and incredibly solid for the price I paid for it.

Ahh, I expected it to be as much. :)

Anyway a quick google search for "O'Sullivan desks" and I found my way to their site and then to the exact same desk! The only problem is that its priced at $300 now but that still doesn't seem that bad. The only issue is that its currently not available and I'm not sure if that's because they've stopped product (most likely) or some other reason.

Thanks for the reply!

I love this thread. Just one question, when you post your setup, please post what desk you have. I think that would help answer a lot of questions some folks have.
Like me :eek:

My next goal is to get a decent desk and chair.... where did you get that desk from? and the monitor stand/mount?? such a shame that the samsung 226bw and the lg l226 both dont have height adjustments.

very nice setup :cool:

Justaddboost: How do you like the SR-5? What are you using to edit the AVCHD? I got the same camera about 2 weeks ago before my vacation and it's been a pretty solid camera so far. My biggest complaint is Sony selling a $1000 camera and not including a mini HDMI cable, i've only seen 2 places online selling the cable and it's a $45 cable :(

I got the Camera 6 days ago, so i havnt had to time to play with it much, i mean right off the bat the video quality is great! i was kinda hoping for a microphone, getting strange static but i need more time to play with it.

Im going to use Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 for any editing, i just use the AVCHD to convert to MPEG-2 thats it. I would say my biggest complaint is this bundle of stupid software and not knowing wtf to do with it, i just want to be able to get my videos off the camera for editing, without playing games.

I feel you about the HDMI deal...its strange to think that 45bucks is almost* DIRT CHEAP for HDMI now adays (atleast for the v1.3) at frys i see them up to 150 bucks for 3 feet!!!!

Yeah, the whole AVCHD has kind of been a pain. I only know of 3 programs that can edit it directly right now, which almost caused me to avoid it, but after a bit of reading it sounded like the format was catching on, and more software will become available. I've been using Sony Vegas to edit the AVCHD directly, it's not that bad. Would love to use Premier myself, but it still doesn't support the AVCHD format :mad:

Anyways, sorry to stray off topic. Setup and camera look nice.

Thanks for the props, what page is your setup on?

Yeah im starting to wonder how bad it is that i cant use the raw movie format in premier, instead of converting then editing. Although i wish it wasnt soo i suppose what i will be suffice for the filming and editing i will be doing

I posted my setup, it has since been lost when the database rolled back. I'll post it again.

I've had the camera about a month now, and i really like it. Been using Vegas for my editing, just waiting for Premier to come out with support for the format (which i read was coming).

Anyways, my setup:

Where'd you get that tree that is by your router, Sucka?

It's a bonsai tree from Wal-Mart. Was like $5.99, doesn't need much water, and no direct sunlight. I think it's kinnda cool :p

And if you were refering to me, the only thing from Ikea is the side table, everything else is not.

If anyone has the new fredrik desk from ikea... the workstation version... 47" wide... could you take pictures for me and post them? I have the old Jerker (flat desk, not workstation) and I'm looking at purchasing the fredrik because I want to put my 2 20" screens on a shelf and have more room on my desk. My only concern is that the desk top is mounted directly in the middle of the two poles making the shelfs much closer to the user. I just want to make sure that it still does look like the old jerker... like this pic i found on google images....

http://www.amerrykan.com/images/ikeajerker/left.jpg

see how the shelves are mounted toward the back... I am concerned that the shelves on the new version are mounted more in the middle. Hope someone is picking up on what I'm saying, sorry for posting in here, but I figured it would be the best place. Thanks.

Wow...and I thought I was the only one who had that dual arm LCD mount. :D Did you find it on eBay as well?

I've got that same bed as well...you have good taste my friend :D

Haha...actually that's a funny story. I checked eBay first to buy the mount, found the exact one I wanted and almost proceeded to buy it. Before I did, I decided I'd actually check out their "Real" store on the web and it turns out they were selling the same mount on eBay in store for $25 less. So I still bought it from them, but just on their ecommerce site. It's a great mount isn't it?

And yea...that bed friggin' rocks :D You've got it in the same color? --Thanks for the props man :D

Best Buy had it? For how much? I ended up paying $80 (after the price of the item + shipping) which still seemed like a good price compared to everything else I was seeing.

...and yeap. Same bed, same color. :D

...ur welcome. ;)

Thanks man ^_^ Nope they're 226BW's (S Panel's). The 906's I hear are pretty decent. I was lucky enough to get 2 S panels from Newegg when I bought them together. It's definitely a great investment.

I have a single 226bw (manu. May '07 plus a 15" MAG LCD manu in Oct 2002.

The 226bw is a great investment, like you said. I love it. Blacks are actually black, and not that negative look.
