    I have a HANN 46" LCD TV. Love it. Well, love it for the cost.

    I LOVE my dad's new 56 someodd " Sony LCD. But he also paid more than 4 times what I did.

    Hanns-G is often sold on newegg. Check it out there and look for reviews.


    At that I have an Acer 22" monitor and I love it. 3000:1, hdcp input, 2ms and I paid about 250 out the door for it with dvi cables.

    I have a Hanns-G LCD on the wife's laptop for home use. It was pretty damn good for $100, hell even $200 a year ago.

    first monitor arrived today
    ran into some issues

    cd and website only have drivers for windows vista, i run 2000 SP2
    second was an outdated driver for my nvidia geforce2 ancient video card

    updated my nvidia and found a driver and its all up and running
    screen is garbage outside its "native" resolution
    1680x1050 or its blurry and makes my eyes bug out

    overall seems to be a good monitor, good picture, sharp image
    now... what to do will all the extra space
    its way too big for fullscreen, but not big enough to fit 2 IE windows comfortably
    perhaps i'm just not doing it right

    Can you make an artificial border/boundary on a large monitor?
    i'd like to be able to maximize a window to 1/2 of the screen size
    and then be able to do the same on the other half

    possible?

    I used to work at Office Depot and we sold that monitor. Hanns G monitors are cheaply made but the actual display is quite nice. Out of our line up of displays often the Hanns would have the best brightness and color.

    PS: Monitors that advertise 3000:1 or 2000:1 contrast ratios are unrealistically high, the highest you'll find a computer monitor is around 900:1. If you search on Google you can probably find someone who tested the monitor and found the actual number.
