    CK,

    Would you be keen if the discount is $200,000?

    $200 thousand? Of coz!

    Seriously, $20 discount for the display set touched and poked by so many people is not worth the trouble.

    I think those are 18 bit LCDs.

    Up your budget a bit, 19-30" is the norm now!!!

    May i know what is the difference between a 16/18 bit panel to a 24bit one? thinking of upgrading my Samsung 152T to a 19 inch one. Some of them selling for $600+

    18 bits = 2^18 = 262144 colors
    24 bits = 2^24 = 16777216 colors

    Color gamut range difference if I may call it.

    congrats, great monitor at great price. my CRT is still going strong, maybe next year... good that 910T is 24bit as well, opens up the choices... personally will choose one according to the best dead pixel policy...

    ST_sg: me running a low end GF4 MX440 64MB, is able to support the 910T at 1280 x 1024 res with 75Hz refresh. Think ur ATI Radeon shld be able to do the same, mine doesn't have DVI though

    Sorry but me no know which 17" are 24bits, I heard BenQ? Even the sales person also no know what I talking about when I asked them on the color depth 18 or 24 bits, they shake head.


    The best dead pixel poilcy award should go to philips I believe... 0 dead pixels/bright dots out of the box and for 3 years.


    Samsung didn't give me any out of the box warranty, I took a chance and plunged in, fortunately...

    so you bought and already using Samsung 910T? How is it?
    I would only thinking 710T or Philips 170B5... but as you say..there are 18bit LCD...sigh... However, Philips's 3 year zero bright dot policy sounds promising though

    Personally, I prefer Samsung... aiya... don't know which to get, and my Philips 107S CRT is failling though... sometimes its color display turns yellowish,..until I knock knock it..then back to normal...

    Btw, I play FPS games though... as such would pretty stay at 1024x768 in order to get a good decent playable framerate

    Yeah... had a little sponsorship from various sources..

    My Sony displayed the same thing as yours after 9 yrs of usage, so I thought it was time to change, working on 15" CRT (14" viewable) is horrendous anyway.

    The Samsung 910T will auto adjust itself base on the reslolution you choose, pretty smart feature. It'll adjust itself to suit the resolution and settings for the ideal viewing.

    But not soo smart if you're calibrating your machine, cos just now just for fun I started Diablo II (800 x 600) and it shrank my display from 1280 x 1024 to 800 x 600 and it auto re-adjusted it's settings to suit the new res. I now turned that feature off, it'll not auto itself again when changing res.

    There's also a button "Auto" that adjusts the display to the best when pressed.

    It comes with a button to instruct the display the source is from analog or DVI. Controls on the LCD is pretty intiuitive too, RGB controls, brightness, contrast, etc.

    You can also rotate the LCD 90 deg to use it in portrait mode however it has a response time of 25ms, which I think might be critical for your FPS games. You might want to consider 8ms or 12ms LCDs with DVI input

    Colors wise, coming out of the box, auto adjusting itself when first boot up and changing res, the colors were pretty accurate except the highlights, after calibration slight changes were noted, only issue now is finding a 19" LCD protector

    Get the da protector! Thick layer of protection for your LCD! Ask them to make a 19" one for you.

    LCD monitor rite? Need protector meh? Pardon me, but it does not require a protector rite? Unless you like to throw things at your LCD or bring it out.

    No need protector, more like sort of anti-glare, cos after calibration, the LCD is pretty bright at night when the light is dim, I used to have a 15" filter for my CRT, so I remove it when doing image editing.

    Yeah, it's ineed a pretty nice monitor, especially at $819.

    ST_sg, the Samsung 710T/N is a 18-bit panel. I am not sure about the Philips, it's probably a 18-bit too. Most of the low cost sub-25ms response-time panels are 18-bit. Some of the Benqs are 18-bit too, check out their specs on the website and look out for the number of colours it can display. 16.2m = 18-bit. 16.7m = 24-bit.

    Graphics cards are usually not a problem if your card can do 1280x1024 (most can). Only when you have a 20" LCD then you'd need 1600x1200, which most modern cards (even low end ones) can support anyway.
