Default Re: nV News Widescreen LCD Club (formally DELL thread)

Is anyone running a dell 3007 with a 640mb evga 8800 GTS. I am thinking of purchasing one of these 30in screens but I am not sure if it'll work 100%. The Dell site says you need a dual link DVI-D equipped card, but my card's specs say it has dual link DVI-I... I'm probably just ignorant on the subject but an explanation and a yay or nay would help me make my decision. TIA

all these sweet tv-as-monitor setups are making me jealous! one day id like a nice 37" 1080p tv as my main monitor, and I'll keep my two NEC 20WMGX2s as side displays. Dunno what ill do with my 24" LG though, dont ever wanna get rid of it hehe. I keep monitors for life!

You can run all your wires through it then mount it to the back of your desk
You can also go to lowes and get some conduit to run the cables through as well.

Pic doesn't show up for me.

Is this the monitor that you have? If so, what do you think of it? It is within my price range, but I just don't want to purchase it only to be disappointed. I don't have any experience with Hanns-G so I don't know how reliable a company they are.

Would you mind commenting on the monitor, if that is indeed the one you have? Thanks.

Pic should be there now, sorry I had removed it from my server and uploaded another one. Just forgot to update the link

I have this monitor actually which I believe is the same. I read on hardforum this thread before I bought it and I read the HJB was the version to get as there was another one. I'm not entirely sure what the difference between the version is but it was on sale for about the same as the newegg link you posted so I bit.

I don't have many gripes with this monitor, my main was the viewing angle I originally had it on the 2nd tier of my desk and I was able to see some color washout as It was too high for my eye level. Once I moved it to more of my eye level my eyes are square in the center of the screen now as opposed to looking up it, the picture was much better.

I also had to fiddle with the contrast/brightness to get the IQ up, but so far i'm LOVING it. I mainly play FPS's and I watch a TON of bluray movies on this. My collection is about 70 strong and growing I did notice as with any large LCD that low quality videos look like **** blown up though. If your wondering about input lag, I made a video and uploaded it to Youtube to give my buddy overseas an idea of it.

Overall I'm very pleased and am very happy I didn't go with a 24inch which I was originally planning. If you want me to take any pictures of games/movies macro shots or anything feel free to ask and I will get them for you as soon as I can.

Take a look at the following dir for pictures of The Dark Knight and Wanted in 1080p as well as some macro shots so you can get an idea of the pixel size. Keep in mind, i'm not that great with a camera

I will be looking for a new 24 inch LCD around tax refund time, if anyone has any good recommendations lmk I would like to keep it around $500ish.

Is Dell the only company that has a warranty like this ?

Its down to these two, I'm leaning more towards the Dell because of the warranty.

I've been very happy with the quality of my 2407WFP-HC, and it looks really good to boot. Tons of imputs, card slots, and USB's too.

I guess the 2408 is pretty much the same as yours, did they have the pixel warranty when you bought it ?

The HP is an IPS panel which makes it a winner in my book. It's very well liked on the Anandtech LCD Thread too. I haven't used either though so I can't really make a recommendation.
