    I think you are refering to Dual-Link DVI input...I think only the really big screens like the 30' Dell and Apple screens with their 4Mpixel screens need them...and actually it is one cable, different from the usual Single-Link DVI cables that we normally use...here's a good page explaining Single- and Dual-Link DVI, in case anyone's interested:http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html

    Do a model search at http://www.flatpanels.dk/panels.php

    See http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...&enterthread=y for a comprehensive article and listing.

    As a general rule, true 16.7 million colours is only available in 8-bit panels. 6-bit panels are dithered to get a max of 16.2 million colours. BUT, many manufacturers fudge, obfuscate, "misprint" or just plain lie on their spec sheets. Even the well known ones like Samsung have wrong info on their websites in my recent experience. Another useful guide is that 8-bit panels seem to currently max out at 8ms response time, so anything less is suspect. Anyway, seems like very few of the popular consumer models in the shops now are 8-bit.

    now the model and the price is the next question.

    ViewSonic VX2025W Black
    1680x1050 pixels
    contrast ratio 800:1
    i think price is $659 on poster but seen none in SLS

    another is not yet on the market
    LG L204WT
    1680 x 1050 pixels too
    but contrast ratio is 2000:1(DFC)
    listed price in cnet is S$599
    think this is better buy

    1680x1050 is abit not enough due to the 1050...
    best to get 24"... which will Max out the resolution to 12**?(if i'm not wrong)
    i'm also using 20" wide lcd, experiencing this problem.

    budget is an issue. max $600+ for a 19-20" is just right.

    I have just discovered this forum and, in particular, this thread. I would very much appreciate some advice as I am about to ditch my Iiyama Vision Master pro 451 in favor of a widescreen

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...name=c00665777

    or a
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en...-12326624.html

    The widescreen HP f2105 is a bit older than the HP LP2065 but they are both about the same price in the UK and both get good reviews.
    I use my computer mainly for surfing the web, e mail etc and photo editing using Photoshop CS2. At the moment I favor the widescreen (it looks very noce!) but I am a bit reluctant to take the plunge into "this new shape"!
    Would be grateful for any views on the monitors and for any advice as what video card would be suitable Thanks
