Nice work man.

Love the look of glass desks but I swap HW in and out WAY to much to maintain any decent wire management behind and wood keeps everythign tidy in appearance

Looking forward to the final pics

This TV actually has a ISF Certified Calibration built in, using about 8 different test patterns. Although it's not perfect, it works fairly decent, especially for contrast and brightness adjustment. Color adjustments are pretty subjective though, but there are about a million adjustments you can make.

I couldn't wait last night, so I pulled out my PS3 from the mess of hardware in the spare bedroom, and hooked it up to see my BluRay Planet Earth... I was... lost... for... words...

These desks have a built in wire management panel in the back, which can hide a lot of wires, but you are right, it is going to take a lot of work to get these to look good.

UPDATE 3-23-10 #2

Yay! I think I am ready to start assembling my workstations... Not right now though... I am too tired... Busy day at work...

I did start to disassemble my temp WS area, and put out my other two monitors in the office to see what it would look like...













The Pics are a little deceiving, since both the Dual Monitor setups are using 23", the stand alone LG TV is 32", and the other Samsung monitor is 24". Since the color of the room got darker, the room size is sorta deceiving, as it looks smaller.

The ACERs fit on the desk the best, but the others are hanging off the lip a little, which is a little bothersome for OCD person like me.

Other than that, it looks like a go.

I am gonna take some private time tonight, and go shoot some pool. Once I get back, I will probably start installing the workstations.

I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THE AMOUNT OF WIRES and WIRE MANAGENT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO DO!!!

Ah.... That feels better... Sorry guys, had to get that out of my system...

OH YEAH... One more thing... I bought a mount for the TV today... If I am still alive after my wife gets done with me, I will hang it and post some pics.

Mount the monitors on the walls, why not?

I'm thinking of turning my desk out so my back would be at the door (which I hate), but it would give me the option of mounting the monitors and speakers on the wall.

I may consider it later, but for right now, that isn't going to work... The great thing about this setup is that I can modulate things later, if I decide to add more stuff. Mounting the monitors will keep me from doing that...

Also, that is A LOT of mounts I have to buy...

Nah... For right now, this is going to work.
