  1. I wish they could make external Video cards through a usb port...

    That could be a very good idea to reach those who havent used monitors like this before.

  2. Problem with bundling a video card with the monitor is that everyone has different needs in a video card and there are so many different interface types these days, its not like its just PCI and AGP anymore.

    I dont think USB has anywhere near the bandwidth to do it. In fact I think the original reason AGP was invented is that the PCI bus was hitting the limit as video resolutions increased.

  6. Oh my it appears we have a "quant" fight going on again. I guess this sort of thing happens when a bunch of out of work engineers congregate on a message board together.

    I did measure one of my 4 flat 19" (5:4) just for the fun of it.
    The largest viewable screen area i got was:

    38*30,3 cm -> 1151,4 cm^2

    The 30" wide:

    64,1*40,1 cm -> 2570,4 cm^2


    Do you live in Denver gnome?
    Is that in Colorado with snow and skiing?
    Do you go downhill skiing?

  9. Metric! Oh man, if gnome lives in CO then he won't understand those numbers. :D

    BTW, it was 60(15C) here today.

    Did you include the bezel? Isn't the conversion 2.54cm = 1in?

    Yes, Colorado. I don't snow ski, but I hear they have had *lots* of snow already this year and the conditions are fab.

    And where do you live? I see your numbers are written like most of the rest of the world, and not us Americans.
