Today you may enjoy the staggeringly rare site of nicolasb in a state approximating to contentment. As a reward for ten years of loyal service (well, ten years of service, anyway) and after some haggling and moral blackmail , my company has given me a Dell 2405FPW monitor as a 10th anniversary gift. It's really rather lovely. My current PC is too old to make the best use of it - GeForce 3 card with no DVI output, only VGA - but even so, taking a few old games for a spin yesterday (Black and White, Deus Ex, Civ 3) at a resolution of 1920x1080 they all looked just stunning. Wonderfully sharp, nice bright colours. The brightness is outrageously high - a shade too much even at the zero setting - and there seems to be a hint of backlight leakage in the corners, but I can live with that. Now I just need a new PC to make the most of it.
