There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. But the edge is still Out there. Or maybe it's In.

My precious monitors

Ok, so never in my life would I have thought I could love some monitors so much....

This year for my birthday and christmas I got two 24" high-def LCDs from Dell.  The model number is 2405fpw. Every place I read about the monitor gave it rave reviews. [Heres one from PCWorld, another from PCMag]  In fact, I've read that this monitor has enough contrast that radiologists are starting to pick them up.

Some of the highlights of the monitors are that they are 1920x1200, high high contrast 1:1000, DVI & S-Video & Component & Composite, built in USB and 9-1 card reader, rotates back-forward-sidetoside, adjusts up and down, and did I say 1920x1200!  : - P

So maybe I'm just a little excited.

For me it is great because lately I've been working on image resampling and I was getting tired of my old KDS CRTs that were always blury and everything seemed shifted.  The picture is very sharp and I haven't found a single dead pixel on either of them!

Also, since they rotate, I've got one rotated for full size webpage viewing and the other is horizontal for coding.  With these monitors I never have to worry about scrolling side-to-side within my development IDEs!

Here is a quick pic of how they are setup.
