new monitor home and jacked in.
one pixel is dead in green, so it appears red when it's supposed to be white.
no big deal, it's relatively out of the way, and with a 19" monitor worth of pixels, it's really unnoticible.
time to try a game.

ok, so it sucks for gaming.
good though, I won't be so tempted to play. :o)

If you should want a monitor for gaming...

I have several Dell and Silicon Graphics branded 20" CRT monitors, if you're interested in having a backup for gaming purposes or whatever. I'm selling them at $150 + shipping if you're interested. I also have a number of 17" CRTs that I'd let go for around $75. All off lease grade A refurbished units with flat Trinitron tubes.

I have a dell 17" that works fine, just got my new dell 19" lcd.
honestly after a half hour of gaming (purely for testing purposes I assure you) it's really not that bad.
It's a tad more laggy than a crt, but totally useable.
thanks for the offer though. I'm just too happy having a big, bright monitor AND desk space.
It's wonderful.

Well, if you happen to know anyone who might want such a monitor, feel free to tell them about me.

And now you know why I hate flat panels. :-p

They look all neat and shiny at first, but thewn I discover that they aren't nearly so USABLE as the CRTs.

I cheated and bought a CRT with an ultrabright setting, which is painful to the eyes when reading text, but great for movies/games.

And hey.... if you're getting extra desk space, doesn't that mean you're getting a 19" monitor and moving it to the back of the desk so that it looks smaller than your 17"? 0:-)

I can't help but notice that everyone at work does that, then say that the monitors should be bigger.

actually it just lets me center it on the desk instead of sort of balancing the fat-ass crt on the corner of the desk. heh. far more useful space ya see.

and i have NO objections whatsoever to the brightness of this thing. I had to turn it down, and that's saying a lot for an LCD.

new monitor home and jacked in. one pixel is dead in green, so it… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
