It will only do this if you are attempting to play DRM enabled content over a non HDCP compliant display. Non DRM enabled content should play fine.

I was kidding.

Superkyle,

W34XRDP2KW2K90 - 40% off (3000 use limit)
C07TR1WFGJ18SF - $60 stackable

$389 before tax, jump on it.

And no, I don't mind the better deal. I feel like I have gotten $30 worth of use out the monitor over the last three weeks, heh.

Right - either way I am not concerned in the slightest.

Hmm...by my own calculations, the 2405FPW screen (not the frame) is 20.35" x 12.72" (I don't know why they can't just list this on their website.) Damn, these things sound big but 16:10 makes them smaller than 4:3 screens.

This 2405FPW is the nicest display I have owned so far bar none. A worthy ugprade over the 2005FPW as well. You really appreciate the extra desktop space and HD 1080i/p movies look awesome on it. The extra width helps a little in games like CS:S, helping you to cover hallways and areas adjacent to them at the same time a little easier.

This monitor is amazing. My mind nearly exploded just thinking about the enormity of its coolness. No dead or stuck pixels either.

It's so nice not to have to worry about desktop space anymore. It's a huge upgrade over my 19" NEC 950+. And for only $780...

Are you implying you've got at 2005FPW you're looking to get rid of?

Dunno I'd have to look. Which one do you want the rev # for (2005/2405?)?

Mine was bought literally 5 minutes after they were available on the website. I did an exchange a week later but it should still be an early revision.

I'll e-mail myself a reminder to check it out. Probably won't know until tonight though.

**EDIT** It's a revision A01.
