    Nothing super fancy, Vizio 39" E3901-A1 monitor, excellent contract and vivid colors. Sharpness on text is really spot on. Run full 1080p through HDMI connection to laptop 1 (ASUS G60J) and 2 (Sager NP8268-S).

    that was a custom desk a friend made 20 years ago for video editing. I got the desk from him in 1997.

    pure awesomeness, the blacks are stunning, the stand of the monitor its just brilliant, its really easy to put them normal mode so i can play games, on portrait mode is just for work. Looking in the future to get the third one so i can get a nvidia surround setup, i got a 980gtx msi.

    the issues everyone has with the monitor like the flicker thing well just to put it this way i didnt run any of those test, i played my games and my software and it didnt flicker and im happy that way, the banding on the gray backgrounds on one monitor is more visible than the other but it doesnt affect any real situation. it shown just in a video to test just that.

    This is our home studio setup, where my wife and I spend much of our time. I do development/design/photography work on my MacBook, and play games on the PC (specs in my sig).

    Image album here.

    This is our setup as of December 2013:

    And here's with the new desk and gadgets. We got this desk last February; it's actually a dinning table from IKEA and it suited us perfectly!

    The curtains are actually plain fabric that we used as ... curtains. The design is not from a specific manga; they were designed by a Swedish designer for IKEA.

    I would post the rest of the desk but haven't had a chance to clean up the room a bit so yeah haha. Recently picked up this ShiMIan 27" refurb on ebay for $179.99 shipped. I am very happy with it especially for the price. The image is gorgeous.

    Yup, got it at Frys, basic, stick on cable hider strip that comes in 2 parts, one that sticks onto the wall that the cables go in and the other is a cover piece. It was long enough that I cut it in 2 for my office, going to run the speaker wires though it. I wanted to run the wires in the wall, but that idea was not received to well.

    The wall mount is just a Monoprice wallmount, you can get it on their site or Amazon. Its a bit stiff though for adjusting, but for just putting up and adjusting it how you like it, its ok.

    have you thought about taking that cover piece off and painting it to match the color of the wall?

    for those looking to buy it, just ask the sales associate for where wire molding is located.

    You could if you were handy feed the wires through the wall and through another hole at the back of the TV. Did this in my home setup- wall socket in a cupboard through to a hole at back of TV. That's more for if you know with some certainty that your tv won't be moving from that spot.

    It appears that is distortion from the camera lens. I wouldn't worry about it being bowed.

    Is that monitor curved? and what is it called?

    Ultrawide QHD monitors are mad sexy, I will one day replace my muti-monitor setup with one of these.

    You can make any monitor curved, you just need a fisheye lens. :D But I think he has a real curve, LOL.
