I think I'm about to take issue with Katherine's review of the two 23" LCDs in the December '04 issue, unless someone can clear something up for me.
To get the most out of the LCD panels, you would want, of course, a pure digital signal. I'm unaware of any single-link card that can pump out 1920x1200 @ 60Hz without reduced blanking. So, my question is, what videocard did you use and did you use reduced blanking or reduced refresh rate?
Also, a sampling of ATI cards consistently exhibited superior digital signals than NVIDIA cards (see Tom's Hardware
). I would hope that these monitors were tested with high-end ATI cards, as well as 6' or shorter video cables, to get the most out of them.
Please, for the love of God please, don't tell me you used an analog signal.
Thanks for your anticipated clarification,
