Why?

Apple has a 30", doesn't mean it prevents sales of its 23"er m8.

There is a larger market for the 20 and 24" WS's than the 30".

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I love the fact the ultrasharps are height adjustable

Makes a HUGE difference for me at least.

My 2405 came today its better then I thought.

Played a bunch of games, games that had widescreen support look great and I have to say this monitor (being an lcd) scales lower resolutions very good.
Games that are 4:3 play with black bars on the side but still look great.

The monitor is revision A04, not 1 dead pixel I could find, there is no back light bleeding and the brightness and colors seem perfect right out of the box.

Dell still has their 20% sale on 20 & 24" monitors. I'm all Dell'ed out right now but just to sweeten it for one other person. Here's a one-use coupon for A&E savings at Dell - expires today - got it from the Christmas game but didn't use:

$45 off $400 $74NVVM06W7NMQ

Though if you really want a 2405FPW, they do run 30% off on them sometimes and there's word of DRM "Vista compliant" new versions coming.

It's not Dell that's doing this. Most widescreen PC monitors have a 16:10 aspect ratio.

Cool The 1680x1050 + Widescreen LCD Club

Lately, a lot of people have purchased widescreen large monitors to go along with their high-end gaming setups so they should have a thread to talk about purely widescreen problems/solutions with. So here it is. First of all state your monitor, the video card driving it, and how long you've had it.

Secondly, a lot of games require special configuration to run at these resolutions so this would be a good place to post them.

I'll start it off:

Dell 2005FPW
eVGA Geforce 7800 GTX KO 256mb

Battlefield 2
I haven't found a way to not stretch it across the screen yet so if there's a way to scale it properly, someone please post it, if you want stretching though, add this to the exe path: " +menu 1 +fullscreen 1 +szx 1680 +szy 1050 " without the quotes and outside of the path quotation.

F.E.A.R.
Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Monolith Productions\FEAR\
settings.cfg

Change Screenwidth and Screenheight accordingly.

Quake 4
Program Files\id Software\Quake 4\q4base\Quake4Config.cfg

seta r_customHeight "1050"
seta r_customWidth "1680"
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta r_mode "-1"

Doom 3
Same as Quake 4

Also, I'd like to thank Valve for truly making the Source Engine for widescreen resolutions, probably best support of them to date. Well that's all I can think of right now, add your tips/tricks to this thread.
