    Exclamation I just got a 24" Dell flat screen

    OMG this monitor is awesome, it's almost too big, I'm watching a DVD chatting and surfin the web with desktop space to spare. I have no games installed yet but I've been told there's no ghosting.

    That is impressive, actually looks too big for me! Im sure id get used to it though. I remember when I got my 17" LCD (1280X1024) I couldn’t believe how small Google looked in IE

    I'm waiting for OLED. They are cheap, much brighter, better color, less power, better veiwing angle, thinner.... Maybe another year or two and I'll pick up a 30" for my system.

    Yes, but after Samsung showed off a 40", I think the flat pannel display market is looking to finally mature. All they need to do is get the resolution up a bit.

    They are talking about 18 months before the mass production will likely hit the market... Christmas 2006! Oh yah!

    Man I just ran Half Life 2 at 1920x1080 full detail antialias etc. This monitor rocks. I was suprised my PC can play run this spec.

    I am suprised as well, but then again Valve really pulled something special with its HL2 engine.

    BTW can you play in front of the monitor, or does it have to be somewhat back, like for example TV?
    What I am asking is can you even see everything thats on the monitor if its on the normal office desk in front of you.

    Glad to see gameplay is smooth and you have no DVI problems or ghosting, looks like Dell really knows what they are doing when it comes to LCDs.

    No no problems and it engulfs your FOV without straining the eyes. Here's another pic portrait. Great for viewing long html pages or workin in dreamweaver you can see much more code at once.

    Tuxy- that monitor is unreal


    quote from todd's link- "Maximum screen brightness is 600 nits, and will result in TVs which are three centimetres thick, or less"

    thats what im talkin about- someday we will have blankets that you can unfold, hang up on the wall, plug in and watch tv on a 9 ft screen with better clarity and contrast than anything out now. i can just see the first ads now, with the hot house wife all wrapped up cuddling, then gets up and hangs her screen on the wall
