You are very lucky, I guess. My nephew is really serious about drawing. Anime in particular. He's doing some really impressive stuff for being a teenager. I bought him a Bamboo last year and he improved immensely. I wonder how much better he will be with one of the Cintiqs. I have no problem spending the money on him for his dream.

And so no one says I'm derailing the thread, here's my LCD setup. Monitors are like crack.

I enjoy anime art. It's what got me into drawing though these days I'm more doing scifi environment art and practicing perspective.
Good to see you supporting him! I hope you he continues to enjoy it and progress his skills even more.

Your setup is disappointing though.... Needs more screens :D

He wants to go to a drawing school at either San Francisco or Japan. Don't recall the names but he really wants to go to one of them. I'm helping get started to apply for scholarships.

b safe in knowing that it takes the crack user the same amount of time to inject as it does for 1) all of your stuff to wake up after you move the mouse or 2) the amount of time it takes you to turn each monitor on. :)

Wow! So many monitors?! Looks great, any particular reason you have so many?

The 5 in the middle are connected to my main PC. I do a lot of things at the same time. I also do a some of my work at home. I deal with a lot of federal rules, training manuals and PowerPoint. The 3 on the left are my secondary PC where I play with VMs for the lulz and also keep my iTunes account on it. All the way right is my WHS box. And, I watch Hulu+, Netflix and Crackle on the 40" TV.

At work I have 3 24" Dells.

lol, wut? Are you referring to the dutch film director that was assassinated over a controversial Islamic film in 2004 or Vincent's brother?

I hope it's Vincent's brother. The other Theo looks sleazy.

Update
Yes, I do think you mean Vincent's brother. Theodorus supported Vincent's career financially. Too bad he died so young.

I picked myself up a pair since my old headphone solution fell off the walls. Found them for about $11 a piece at Home Depot.

Yup, when I was looking around for stands, the actual stands were around $50 to $100. Prior I was using shelf legs from Ikea like you see in my prior pictures that my LCDs are on, but I had some mounted to the sides of the cabinet, but after the hot fall they fell off, so these were perfect for what I needed.

Actually, its a terrible desk. I bought this for my GF when she moved in, and within a month, the finish was already peeling off the particle board.

Thank you, I ended up getting the RealSpace Magellan desk at Office Depot that goes on sale for $140. :D

@ Stooley,

Loving the Seiki 39 for the monitor. How do you find it compares with the Dell 3008 you have next to it?

@ Stooley,

Loving the Seiki 39 for the monitor. How do you find it compares with the Dell 3008 you have next to it?

The Dell is clearly (without a doubt or even a question) the better monitor. 30hz @ 4k is very jittery, I tried gaming on it with a few specific games and some games are better than others.

Blacklist crashes @ 4k, BF4 plays great, but screen tear is very noticeable. AC4 looks great, and plays okay when limited to 30hz. Same with Sleeping Dogs. I tried to get Dead Space 3 to work but couldn't. I really hope someone makes a 39/40 inch panel that's 4k/60hz and under 800ish, heh that would be nice.

I'm not incredibly impressed with it but at sub $500, its not a huge loss if I don't like it. I will however try and daily it and see if the hz is going to really bother me that much. So currently, my 3008 is still the primary monitor and the seiki is secondary. I work from home and could benefit from the extra space.

Also, are you driving it through the DisplayPort? Are you running at 30Hz? How do you like it?

There is no display port, i'm driving it using the supplied blue HDMI cable via one of my 780's. My 3008 is being driven via Display port. I am also running the 50inch firmware.

Thanks for the reply. As an office/productivity monitor, Seiki should do very well. Plenty of screen real estate. Any opinions on how it handles gaming at downscaled 1080p?

1080p @ 120hz is okay, i'm used to gaming at 1600p though so I don't think i'll be doing any gaming on this monitor at that res.

I usually stick to my lightboost monitor (120/144hz) and play on my alienware if I want to game at 1080p.

30hz, is something else though if you are considering getting this. I love the res, but I hate the refresh rate.

MAGI system. This is my dorm room so it is a shared setup, hence the two sides/chairs.

2x U2410 + Sony 40EX640

adding 2 UltraSharp 2209WAs on an Ergotron above the U2410 on my side in a couple weeks.

If anyone is wondering it's sitting under my loft bed, which is what that pine lumber is. NYC apartments are small!
