Big screen with low resolution. may look like running DOS on a 19" monitor.

Anandtech has reviewed the Dell 2005FP vs the Apple 20". Same picture quality for 1/2 the price... now when is it coming to Singapore?

Frankly, I would rather take the 24inch widescreen version USD1K and settle it once and for all.
PS : Noticed that WAI is selling his HP 20" LCD I wonder why.

Anyone else with experience on the Dell 19inch Ultra Sharp LCD? Hows the performance? How's the delivery timing? Doesnt seem cheap.

My experience on DELL Ultrasharp 19':
Good: crispy text on DVI, decent colors, support portrait mode, 19' for 1280x1024 resolution is better than 17', pricing is great, no bad pixel
BAD(?): too bright when ambient light is dim (brightness set to 0 still not helpful), DVD watching is not smooth, need to calibrate (on window OS), adjustable height is limited (on the lower side)
With the constent dropping of large screen LCD panels, it's hopefully for us to get a 23' or above professional panel for sub 2k within one year. That would be my next buy (powered by windows Longhorn or Max OS X Tiger or Lion )

The local distributor for Eizo is Powermatic, they have an office in SLS, 6th storey. Backrow shops though..
I doubt they have any of the panels on display but I own 2 Eizo LCD's to date and have not been disappointed. Can't really go wrong with 3 full years of onsite service.. I believe the newer panels have 5 year warranties though.
Go to Eizo's website to view the specifications and the pictures.

any comments on lcd tv's . I was at S.E Asia computer this afternoon, noticed they had a viewsonic 30' n3000 lcd tv, reading the brochure, seems to be able to hook to a pc... (at least I'm hoping it can, so if someone knows.).
was going for 1999 only ...

so is CMV 19" 24bits or 16 bits?

Update on Eizo pricing.
Just ordered an Eizo L568-K 17", 24bit panel model. This is a slightly older model with DVI inputs and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. It's a 25ms panel.
Paid $809 inclusive of GST. One of the last few pieces of the shipment that came in today.. LOL..
There's a backorder of 21 units but the salesman was nice enough to let me take this piece tomorrow. Could have picked it up today if I wanted to go down to the warehouse.
If you guys want to buy this, be prepared to wait for the next shipment from Japan.
Lead time: 5 to 6 weeks.
The newer model, L578, is a 17", 24bit panel, with 16ms response time!
Almost paid the extra $290 for this. Unfortunately, no stock and have to indent for next shipment from Japan.
Lead-time: 5 to 6 weeks
Those interested in both gaming and photo editing may wish to pay the extras for this. One of, if not, the only 24 bit panels with sub 25ms response time. There's a premium to pay.. But the 3 years onsite warranty from Powermatic should be worth it. And the reliability is definitely there.
The only Eizo panels I've heard of having problems are the very cheap models which actually use panels manufactured in China (some people did open up their LCD's before. I'm one of them.)
My L350 has a MIJ panel. But did cost me $1.2k for a 15" LCD back then. The later budget model was a lot cheaper, about $600, but came with a China made panel and many people complained about stuck/ dead pixels.
You get what you pay for.....

Anyone has an opinion on the Viewsonic VP191b?
3rd June 2005, 09:23 AM
3rd June 2005, 09:48 AM
Just bought a viewsonic 191b.
First impressions very good, fast response, 8 bit colour.
5th June 2005, 10:05 PM
8 bit do not make up to 16.7 million coulour ....
So, is the VP191b a 24 bit = 16.7 million colour ? If it is so, worth serious consideration...
5th June 2005, 10:42 PM
7th June 2005, 11:42 PM
Haha ... Can be next target ... although still like my 757NF CRT ...
8th June 2005, 07:11 PM

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for contacting ViewSonic Technical Support.
Yes, the VP191b will display 16.7M colors without dithering.
