Dell 3007 30" vs westinghouse 37" 1080p review!!!! - Page 7

post #61 of 101
Well as you can tell my desk is pretty small so im sitting around...id say 2-3 feet from it max and I've only had it for a week. Im pretty impressed at how clear things look on it though from this distance. I was expecting a bit more pixelated images and text but no it actually works out pretty well. As far as daily use, surfing the web has worked fine so far, you can actually have two windows open simultaneously side to side and still be able to see whats going on in both so thats a plus. Now as far as graphic design, i've actually had to do some graphics work just yesterday and all I can say is its worked pretty good. You get alot more room in photoshop to work around with and with such a big monitor you really dont need to zoom in that much to see the smallest details and see it alot better, and bigger of course without having to stick your nose right into the monitor when trying to edit a single pixel out or something. I can't really complain about the coding part either I mean text is sharp and clear, theres plenty of room, so it works. I'd say the only con to to this monitor would be its other abilities, mainly entertainment ones...that distract you from doing real work . That PIP thing is really distracting when running in the corner and your trying to finish a project but then some interesting tv show comes on, or hot girl sometimes. Anyways i had my serious doubts on this monitor but so far its been nothing but good experiences with it. I too was considering a 30" monitor from dell or hp but the only real reason to go with that was the higher resolution, 2560x1600 i believe. But then I got to thinking that it was perhaps too high of a resolution to code well in or surf the web because the text would be so small ud really have to be close to the monitor, or use a smaller resolution which in return kind of defeats the purpose of getting it. anyways this was the link that made me think about that http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000756.html in case you feel like reading it (also a nice side by side size comparison).

Some seriously interesting info. I had my mind set on the Dell 30in HC with all those new revisions but now im totally unsure. I am a hardcore gamer and in the middle of a new system build I have set aside 2 grand for a screen and I am looking for something big and visually stunning. Are the Dell and Westinghouse as good as I will need or should I take my bundle of money and go a little more crazier and if so what displays would you guys recommend? Cheers

As far as the Dell 30 HC, its pretty much the same as the 30 inch available from HP right now so if you want you can just purchase that. From a pure gamers perspective though I can say this westy monitor is awesome. I played BF2142 and it really changes the feel of things like when you're on the mech. From that end this monitor will not disappoint. I guess from the gaming perspective, bigger will probably always be better so if you can find something better for the 2k ur planning on spending then go for it cuz this screen is only about 1.2k at most with shipping/insurance. I almost would not recommend the 30" dell or hp monitors if your sole purpose for it will be gaming. I too had doubts about the 1920x1080 resolution but have found it to be sufficient. Not only that those monitors are way more expensive, and smaller. The only reason to get one of those is if say you do alot of photoshop work or other work requiring large screen real estate to allow for more workspace and also if color accuracy is essential.

Well I like bigger but im a performance maniac ill literally take a 15inch screen if the picture and the quality of the screen beats the bigger ones. In a way lets say 37inch screens like the westy are the hot thing. If theres another screen thats 37inches like the westy but is a better performer when it comes to visuals and it costs 2k ill take it even though I could get the westy for cheaper or get a larger screen. Be honest I think 37 inches is good enough for me so I am really liking the Westy but if theres something that has better visuals ill take it I have the budget. Im indecisive so what others say plays a large role in my purchase decision.

Well i came from good 21" crt and the quality as compared to it was just as good honestly. As you know crt's generally have better color quality and i couldn't tell the different at all. The latency on the panel itself is hardly noticeable if at all. Overall im really satisfied and thats because Im a really picky user.

Well i went to best buy after work today i checked out the westy 42 inch they had on display but it was real grainy but i have a feeling its the video they were playing or the settings they were selling the 37in for 1k flat not bad but they didnt have the 37in on display.
post #67 of 101
Just make sure ur looking at the right model of westy's cuz the best buy here had the other westy's the 1080i models not the 1080p and yeah they sometimes have crappy video source that will definitely make these monitors look bad.

I've been looking to get an HDVT to use with my computer for some time and haven't had such luck with my 53" projection TV. Apparently the 6800GT's didn't come with component out, and that's all that my TV accepts. So I'm currently in the market for a new LCD TV (with the main intention of watching TV with it) and figured it might be a good idea to get something that can also perform well as a PC monitor.

The Westinghouse immediately caught my eye for its price and feedback that it's been getting. It looks like it could be a good pair for even my graphics card. But what kind of performance can I expect from an old 6800GT at such massive resolutions as 1920x1080p?
