Re: 4:3 vs. 5:4

NEC S-IPS screens are very nice. I am hunting for a reasonably priced LCD2090UXi - it is one of the very few models with the A-TW polarizer, aiming to fix IPS shortcomings - such as IPS glow, tint. Couple more things about old LCDs: 1 - beware of the panels; I would avoid TN (poor angles, poor …

Re: 4:3 vs. 5:4

I bought recently 3 20'' inch monitors, 1600x1200. There are many available where I live, paid cca 40 EURO for each of them. I am currently thinking of buying the 4th one, a DELL 2007FP as I am quite sure that these monitors will disappear from the market in the future and the LCD backlights will …

Silent Hill 2 - 3 Deus Ex 1 - 3; I dislike DX - MD with a …

Re: ISA Eagle II card and Windows 9x not playing nice!

could not get it to work. Forcing VGA just turns the monitor off; using protected (timings) VGA just displays some gibberish on the screen. I will try one last thing: I have bought a "nice" 15 inch NEC LCD, from 2000, which does one thing right: it can sync from 24 kHz up to 48.3 kHz and some people …

ISA Eagle II card and Windows 9x not playing nice!

Hi I have acquired an old 8bit ISA Eagle II card (Cirrus Logic GD-510/ 520) with 256k RAM. I like the card because it can output EGA on VGA port and is more compatible with older games compared to the PCI cards I have (S3 / Matrox / etc). For example, I can play Cruise for a Corpse EGA without any …
