I just happened upon this topic by accident, because I did a Google for the model number, and was actually looking for a review.
Boy, Futureshop is mean, and sneaky. The price today ( Dec.19, 2005 ) is $799.99 ( not on sale at the moment )
I find FS does this all the time, - you can see something listed for $299 for example with $150 off, then a week later it's only $50 off, or another week it will be $200 off.... it drives me nuts how they can do this within a week period... if you had a friend buy something off ya one week for $50, would you then offer it to somebody else a week later for $25 ? ... eek. They don't seem to understand the fact they are telling clients that they don't care about them I feel.
Anyway this monitor looks amazing. Now that I know it was on sale, I won't be buying it at $799 ..... because if I do, they will drop it by $150 in January ( isn't that always the way
I see this monitor also has a USB port on it ( it must be USB 2.0 ) ... the demo shows a memory card being slid into the right side of the monitor.....
I currently have a Samsung 19" monitor that I bought about 3 years ago, and it's amazing, ( it has a DVI port ) which I use. Anything but using DVI on any LCD just results in very inferior text ( for those who don't know ) Perhaps newer LCDs are better today, and can use the regular VGA port ? but I'm pretty sure it's the same. ( somebody can jump in and correct me if I'm wrong )....
Anyway I'm happy with my 19" but it's a normal LCD monitor, and is 4x3 format and I want to go 16x9. 21" is nicer, although in person when you see the 23" models these are the ones that are really impressive. I'll have to go and see this Gateway model in person to see how it feels.
Anyway this Gateway LCD flatpanel looks really nice. Too bad it's not on sale for $699.99 for Christmas
