Hi, New member here

I heard about this monitor on Fatwallet.com. I heard from there that STAPLES.com has this monitor on sale for $539 and there are coupons for $50off $500. I ordered the monitor today for $489 + tax, shipping was Free. I should have it in a week or so. Just passing it on.

hi there

let me know if this monitor shows up cheaper then $799 (its current price at futureshop) shame no dvi cable and a 1 year warranty on such a huge purchase is ridiculus

thanks

The 1 year warantee is the only thing that is keeping me away from making this purchase.

Anyways, just looking for some updated thoughts on this monitor. I am thinking of picking it up. Has anyone tried it with games, or got the DVI working yet with TV-Tuners? I want to use the DVI from my Radeon x700 and the Component from my ATSC tuner.

Also, how many sources can I have going. Can I have one S-Video, One Component, One Analog, One DVI, and so forth...

Could gateway be selling two different panels under the same model ... FPD2185WH vs FPD2185W ? Future Shop has them both, with the 'WH' being in stock. Are they the same? FS is on sale for $699.

I think the WH model is the dual dual language (French / English) packaging and the W version is the the English only packaging.

There is another HDCP compliant LCD monitor available now from Future Shop. It's a 20'' LG L203WT going for $549 @ FS. Too bad it only supports 720p, but not 1080i though...

Anyone have preset settings that they recommend?

For some reason it doesn't seem as the eztune works well with this monitor, as when I put the brightness all the way down, I can STILL see the #1 in the template they give you to adjust the settings.

Thanks!
