The new monitor arrive this morning; a Dell Ultra Sharp U2212HM 21 inch wide screen. I never minded the old Samsung being a 19 inch but it is rather nice having the extra visual real estate with the Dell. It doesn't sound like much going up to 21 but it's pretty significant being so used to the old one. I'll have to pick up a new calibration tool because the old Colorvision Spyder 2 doesn't get along with LED back light so I'm not even going to try. The Dell is reasonably calibrated out of the box so all good. I'm happy to get the damn CRT brick I was running, in the interim, off my desk finally. Good God that thing is hyooge and the color totally shot. Well, back to work! Good deal.
I just wanted to drop in a quick post noting that my monitor (Samsung 931c wide gamut LCD) croaked out last week and I'm currently awaiting it's replacement (Dell Ultra Sharp U2212HM IPS screen and also wide gamut). It had been acting up since last month but it wasn't clear it actually was the monitor at first (video card also was a suspect but it's fine). This has been causing causing problems here and there as it was in it's mysterious death rattle. Now that it's done-for no color work until the new monitor arrives. I'm running my old CRT right now so I can respond to messages and surf but this thing is bloody shot for color it's utterly useless.
I'll be back to posting soon. Thanks for the support always and enjoy the Memorial Day holiday!
