Thanks, Preston. So:: boiling it down to a make and a line, now Chuck [[ and you ]] give thumbs-up on the Dell. "UltraSharp", rt? A personal note from the cheapes--er, *thriftiest* guy alive: for a new display, price isn' the driving force. it's quality-- which includes durabiility, function, &c. (actually, i wouldn't mind 19+.) 20" [[[ and when the hell are we going to join the 18th Century and go-metric?! ]]] ....20" is about the max since i cram as many xterms with tiny fonts as possible. so brightness+contrast matter. [[ if i could get out easily, i might check out the 24" ... but that would only give me LCD-envy!! --ah, *life* :-| ]] Anyhow, ao far, i'm looking at the Hanns-G, the Samsung SyncMaster (941BW), And possobily the VIewSonic. And the Dell UltraSharp. (gReat if Costco has these; but i'll try egghead.com too.) Anybody here in the States have any other recommmendation, plese gimmmee a shout:-) gary > > Preston > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
