I keep it rotated every couple of weeks with my other FW900. Sometimes I prefer anti glare and sometimes I don't. A man needs choices lol.

Hit me up if you ever decide you really do want to buy it back

Ironically, my personal favorite version (Sun w/DVI) is for sale in Austin, Texas

Link to the one in Austin?

You... you... removed my sticker? Bah. Well... Once I'm employed I'll be *very* interested in buying it back . That might be as soon as early September . I removed that anti-glare myself, ya know, as well as calibrated it/focused it.

Quick question: Your old FW900 has perfect geometry. My other FW900 makes me wish there was a horizontal pincushion setting. Along the top of the screen it's not perfectly straight (like the Overclock.net on the IE title bar). Do you know if there is a setting in WinDAS for this?

I just emailed the guy. For $250 I'll drive the 2 hour and 45 minute trip to get it! I want it! Bad!!!

To answer your question: Ask Manyak, as he calibrated his monitors with WinDAS. I, on the other hand, took the bezel off and calibrated them *by hand*. Is there a pincushion effect for all resolutions, or just 2304x1440?

The $45 it'd cost for a full tank of gas to get there and back is well worth it for me .

it'd be something like a 6 hour, 370 mile round trip so it'd take me more than one tank of gas...and the gas isn't something i care about. the length of the drive is what would suck.

It's 24", 2304x1440 @ 85Hz, 16:10, and well... the best CRT to date. When the time comes to get back into gaming, I'm not getting an IPS. I'm getting another FW900.
holy crap that things still 300 bucks.....
