New LCD Hotness!

Holy crap! Look at what I've been missing these last couple of years. The LCD train finally came to pick me up today and.... D A M N ! ! I should have done this sooner. But, as they say, if you're gonna do it, do it right. So I was kicking back on the couch Monday looking over the Fry's ad, when it called to me. Black Samsung 19" LCD Widescreen monitor with native 1440x900 resolution and 4ms grey-grey response time. For $199.99 out the door. There was just no way I could resist that. So on the way home from work yesterday I stopped to pick one up. Made sure the guy gave me one that hadn't been returned by some other dope. Got it home but by the time I crawled through traffic I didn't feel like tearing up the PC. So it waited a day.

When the desktop finally loaded, I was floored. And I hadn't even reset the resolution yet. The clarity is incredible. Everything is nice and sharp, in focus, well defined, and bright. Maybe a bit too bright, but I can tweak that. Then I took it for a spin in Oblivion and I think I'm in love. Bethesda even kindly provides a 1440x900 widescreen format. Kick ass gaming goodness right here baby. No sign of ghosting or any of the usual stuff people complained about with LCDs the last time I tried one. Jesus, I sound like a commercial :)

Anyway, hats off to Samsung. And I'm highly recommending this monitor for anyone like me who's still on the fence about going digital. Now all I need to do is find somewhere to ditch this boat anchor 19" CRT....

Well. I guess that's that then.
