Tell home theater owners that they must have the lights on when they watch a movie on their bigscreen LCD and see how they react.

heh.. let me refrase that.. its better for your eyes to have lights on.
also, if you watch your stuff with lights off, you probably have to readjust the levels anyways to be correct.

Also, people don't sit right up next to their bigscreen lcd monitor.. vs sitting right next to a computer monitor.

Tell me something I don't know dude. I'm not thrilled about supporting freaking wire-level DRM. Besides, I'll need a few other things first like a new video card, Blue-ray drive, Vista, etc. Or, I could just snag one of these and not pay the premium for a first-gen HDCP display. I know strippers are no permanent solution, BD+ and HDCP key revocation will kill strippers. Anyway...I'd rather let all the noise surrounding HDCP play out before biting. I won't be watching movies on this display anyway. I'll get a HDCP TV before I'll get a HDCP PC display.

OWA, which display are you using more often these days, Dell or Westy?
I finally got a chance to get everything connected. I currently still have the 2nd system using the Westy as its main monitor and the Viewsonice 19" as its secondary monitor. With my main system I'm using the Dell 24" and have the Westy connected to it as a secondary monitor. The plan is to use the Westy for console type games (games I use a gamepad with like NBA Live, Madden, racing games, etc.).

I also connected my regular Xbox to the Westy and it looks surprisingly good.

I think this might be the first LCD I've owned with no dead pixels. Used the dead pixel buddy to check it over tonight and hell if I can find one.

/knocks on wood

Miracles happen I guess. lol
