    So Bob, did you buy one ?

    Mine arrived yesterday. Not on sale though, paid $369, sigh..

    First impressions are good even before calibrating.

    Cheers, Don

    Is it the 2209WA? Where did you get it from?

    Yup,

    Ordered it online from shopRBC, thank you very much for that

    Now I need to decide whether to keep my new Dell SP2309W, my desktop is looking rather decadent right now...

    Have you tried forcing it to 75Hz yet?
    It is capable of 75Hz according to the manual but you can't pick it by default in Display settings.

    If you have a Nvidia card, just follow these instructions: http://www.ocforums.com/showpost.php...2&postcount=19

    Yep it was one of the first things I did.
    Not sure how much difference it makes for Image Editing but it is supposed to make a difference when it comes to gaming.

    No gaming here

    I understand it's also easier on eye strain...

    Yeah I got it. Here inthe UK it was delivered in 20 hours lol. Unfortunately the graphics card on my laptop has melted. I received the hard drive and RAM back from the repair centre as the laptop is useless now. Had it for just over 2 years and paid 900 for it. Absolutely gutted. Apparently the problem of overheating is very common and is a coding problem with GeForce graphics cards. Disgraceful they can get away with it lol. So my spanking new monitor hasn't even had a picture through it yet. It still looks rather good onthe table though

    Yikes... that sucks

    I guess this is redundant now but do you know if your laptop supports a remote monitor?

    The reason I ask is I hooked up my three year old 19" Dell LCD monitor to my one year old Dell Inspiron 15" laptop and the picture quality was horrible, as in, unuseable...

    It did support a remote monitor, until the graphics card melted lol. Now it supports nothing
