Over the course of the last few years, the PC industry has witnessed a major transition away from the world of traditional CRT monitors, towards products based on LCD displays. With the inception of LCD's, there was no denying the handful of advantages LCD's had over their CRT counterparts. Less eye-strain, significantly thinner depth and lighter weight, and improved brightness and contrast are a few of the more common salient features of LCD displays. However, the one Achilles' heel of this new display technology was gaming and general video performance. Here, slow response rates for the panels resulted in "ghosting" where fast-moving characters or scenes would leave "trails"... Read more...
The staff at Widescreengamer.com is discussing something that would drive me absolutely insane. It seems that Dell's 2005FPW is exhibiting some sort of screen burn in some usage scenarios. Luckily, the problem doesn't seem to be permanent. "WidescreenGamer.com is discussing something that is becoming a nuissance for owners of the popular Dell 2005FPW widescreen monitor: Image 'Screen Burn' after prolonged periods of use. It's actually not really 'screen burn' at all, and you'll be relieved once you read what we have to say about this phenomenon."... Read more...
While any old LCD monitor is fine for your average web surfer, gamers have stricter criteria for what's needed. After all, what's the use of having a high-end system, only to view your high resolution, anti-aliased game on a sub par monitor? The Tech Zone has taken their time to help explain away what you should be looking for."Specs are a great tool for narrowing down your choices, but they are no replacement for hands-on experience. Plenty of large resellers stock a wide range of monitors and some are on display. Go down to every shop you can and see if you can find the monitor you are thinking of buying. You never know, that slightly low spec one you shunned in favour of that extra inch of... Read more...
In an effort to help clarify some marketing terms that have been thrown around in terms of LCD Panels, X-Bit labs takes a look at 7 different LCD monitors, discussing(in detail) response time compensation. This isn't a light read folks, so grab some coffee, and emerge yourself in 20 pages of LCD technology."The ISO 13406-2 method to measure the monitor's response time as the total time necessary to change the state of a pixel from pure black to pure white and back again brings but very little information about the real performance of the monitor and easily misleads the user. Today we are going to reveal all secrets about this parameter and discuss the response time compensation that affects the... Read more...

Hey folks, the news is moving slow today but there's enough for a decent read. I'm taking valuable time away from a Red Sox game right now, so you better enjoy the news :) WD 320GB PATA HDD @ Hardware Avenue "PATA is still considered by many as the HDD standard of choice - IDE cables are not ideal, but when using specialized rounded cables, they become far less of a problem air flow wise and actually aren't too bad in comparison to SATA cables. The HDD makers are aware that not everyone has bought into the rather slow moving SATA market so you'll still find high end HDD's featured on the PATA standard - which is exactly what we have in review today, the high end Western Digital WD3200 320GB PATA...

A.C.Ryan RyanPower2 450w Modular PSU @ Viper Lair: "Overall, the AC Ryan 450w modular power supply is an excellent unit. The only negative thing that I found about it is that there were not enough mini 4-pin connections for my setup. Aside from that, the voltage levels all stayed at proper levels, the modular cable system makes my case look a whole lot cleaner, and actually makes installation easier since I don't have to hunt around for my cables."
